Wearing Modest Clothing While Exercising

Recently a sweet reader asked if I could write about how to stay modest while exercising. Well, of course I can! I try my best to exercise at least thirty minutes each day, so I do have a bit of experience with this.

There are times when I work out in the privacy of our home while wearing sweat pants. But by and large, I wear skirted leggings with a t-shirt. I have been able to find a couple pairs reasonably priced on Amazon. I enjoy wearing these because I can wear them with many different t-shirts.

I really like to find decent clothing at an affordable price. And friends, this has been very difficult lately! The prices of everything have gone up so much.

For example, when I purchased the skirted leggings that I wear, they were around $10-15 a piece. Not so anymore. We really have to search high and low to find affordable clothing now, don’t we?

The black skirted leggings above are pretty much my go to leggings when I exercise. They were around $15.00 when I bought them in November 2021. They are very comfortable, and have pockets! I’m 5’2″, so they are definitely longer on me than on the model. The skirt ends around my knee.

This is another skirt that I own, in blue. When I purchased it two years ago, it was $9.00. I do recommend it, though. It has pockets as well, and I’ve worn it to both exercise and swim in.

These items are still in great shape, and I wear them often.

Another good option is to wear a t-shirt dress with leggings while exercising.

While prices right now are high, it can still be a good investment to purchase a clothing item that you know will be put to good use. If you exercise at least a couple of times per week, it might be a good idea to purchase a modest work out outfit.

I know that when I put on my exercise clothing, it motivates me to actually exercise! I put them on first thing in the morning when it is a jogging day. I aim to jog about 10 miles per week. My health has really improved since I began jogging regularly about one year ago.

The Lord is so good, friends! We can still honor Him with our clothing choices, even when we are exercising.

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

1 Timothy 2:9-10

    Thank you Nicole for your great post. There used to be an online Christian company that sold modest decide clothing but they are closed until August. I wear a long t-shirt dress and leggings for exercising but I would like to get the skirt and attached leggings but wow! They are expensive. I’m going to have to complete a bunch of my online surveys so I can earn enough Amazon gift cards to buy something.

      I hate how everything is so expensive right now! I have to carefully weigh each and every purchase we make, and try to make things last as long as possible.
