Look good, feel good! Shop your shape.

Looking and feeling good as you work out boosts your performance –  and it’s scientifically proven!

Never compromise on a good fit, comfort or style, encourages MGW founder Jenny Squires, "there’s nothing more distracting than hoiking your activewear up or down while smashing a HIIT class." The MGW mission is to help you find the perfect outfit that works with, not against, your body as you work hard. Here’s our roundup of our brands and latest collections best suited to your shape.

Neat Petite

Nobody likes having to roll up their leggings... But gone are the days as 7/8 length is the thing of the moment! We absolutely love Arcaa Movement's 7/8 High Viper and Noli's 7/8 Liquid Legging. Australian born All Fenix are also one to check for beautiful 7/8 styles in high performance fabrics.

Check out the super luxurious Spring Summer range from Aurum which stock sizes from XXS to XL, ideal no matter your shape or size. 

Great Lengths

Showcase those long, lean pins of yours with full length leggings made from deliciously soft high performance fabrics. We absolutely love fashion-forward brand Strut This' Teagan Long range which are ideal for those struggling to find leggings long enough. The Dream Spin Legging and Sculpt Me Legging by Ilu are another favourite... If you're a yoga bunny, they're the perfect match for you. 

With plenty of height on your side, you can nail the layering game. Say hello to super soft and cosy, drapey jumpers from Hard Tail and street style inspired tanks and hoodies by Koral.

 

Supporting Role

Our go-to picks for ample coverage and support for your most important assets include the best selling Base Sports Bra by All Fenix, Power Sports Bra by Jilla and High Road Sports by Climawear. We love looking out for thick, supportive straps (extra stars for adjustable straps!, a wide hem band and compression-like fabric qualities for maximum coverage.

Small is Beautiful 

Take full advantage of being small up top with buying some of the prettiest sports bras with intricate detailing, it adds so much to your gym outfit! We love Arcaa Movement's Zodi Sports Bra which looks fab with the matching 7/8 Viper Legging in Clay Spot for Summer. Channel your inner wild child with subtle animal prints combined with feminine tones by activewear giant Varley with the Perkins Sports Bra.

What a Pear 

Make the most of that tiny waist and show it off with vest tops that can be knotted at the waist like the Wisdom Tank by Aurum or flattering crop jumpers like the Meg Sport Pullover by Hard Tail which is ideal for chucking on over your gym kit after a sweaty spin class! Or if you're confident enough, we love the Bowie Crop Top in Grey as an everyday basic.

Pair these with a high waisted pair of leggings which will emphasise the curves around your waist such as Koral's Lustrous Legging or a pair of Lilybod leggings (they're all super high waisted - the choice is endless!)

An Apple a Day 

Let's make your legs the showpiece of your gym outfit with patterned leggings which draw the eye. Here are some of our top picks... New from Koral is the Knockout Legging, a street styled inspired piece made from knitted, jacquard camo. If getting super sweaty is your thing, Born Nouli's Topaz Leopard Legging is for you. 

For everyday basics that perform every time, Nux is king. Sweat wicking, super breathable and lightweight, non-clingy fabrics are their arena. Our best sellers are the Kenny Racer, Freedom T Back and Kai Drapey Racer.

Finding your fit can literally be life-changing as one happy customer recently shared with us…

I wanted to let you know I felt really sassy in the gym over the weekend wearing my leggings. They are so comfy you don’t notice they’re on! It so helps when you work out in amazing gym clothes. I did a workout in the weight section, which I never do!’
