TRIBE SPORTS ELIT6 PANELLED RACE TOP

£49; tribesports.com

‘If you want to look cool but understated at the gym, you’ll love this racer-back vest. The classic cut is flattering to the body and, with a fine mesh panel on the back, you’ll always be on trend. The top boasts an antibacterial fabric for hygiene and to keep odours at bay. After a tough workout, I still felt pretty fresh, thanks to the lightweight and breathable fabric. The reflective stripe is an added bonus for when you’re working out in low light, boosting your visibility and safety. And, with UV protection built into the fabric, you can focus on your workout without worrying about getting burnt through your top in the height of summer.’

NIKE DRY TRAINING TANK

£30; nike.com

‘One of the coolest of cuts to be worn on the gym floor, Nike’s good-value training tank boosts a loose fit and elastic back straps to allow for a natural range of movement while you work out. Its Dri-Fit technology wicks away sweat, while the soft fabric and flat seams are really comfy on the skin. If you also want to show off your new sports bra, then this is the top for you – its super-low, open back shows just enough skin without revealing too much, and the dropped hem at the back adds to its flattering shape. The loose fit stays in place surprisingly well, too.’

CEP WINGTECH SHIRT

£50; cepsports.co.uk

‘Fed up with your gym kit not adding to your performance? Then the latest range from CEP should be on your shopping list. Not only does the Wingtech Shirt feel super-soft and weightless, it’s flattering to all body shapes. The Smart Wingstripes (seen as curved lines in the material that go from the top of your shoulders at the back, round to the side seams at the bottom of your ribs) make you feel almost unstoppable. The perfectly placed pattern looks futuristic and the stripes send gentle reminders to your body to help you maintain better posture, thanks to ‘sensorimotoic stimulation’ (helping your body to help itself). Maintaining good form can help boost how well your body works, and prevent injury, so the second-skin fit and feel works perfectly during training. It allows your body to breathe, without restricting your movement or rising up.I was sceptical at first that something so discreet could have such an effect on the body but, for someone who works out regularly and often feels tension due to desk work, my body felt great and ready for more action after this top’s first outing.’

BELLUM ACTIVE MARBLE SEAMLESS TANK

£34; bellumactive.co.uk

‘If comfort’s high on your kit agenda, you should check out this seamless tank that wouldn’t look out of place on the gym floor or at a yoga retreat. There’s no doubt you’ll feel super comfy thanks to the soft fabric and ribbed panels positioned to reduce chafing, which also add a touch of style to this sleek top. And breathable, wicking mesh panels, keep sweat at bay during your workout. Thanks to the delicate peach-coloured edging detail around the neckline and racer-back, this top will flatter any shape and be in fashion for years to come. Definitely one for your workout wardrobe.’

PUMA ACTIVE TRAINING PWRSHAPE TANK

£35; uk.puma.com

‘Want to show off your body shape? Puma’s Active Training top could be just the thing you’re after. Its retro, ergonomic cut harks back to the 50s to highlight the female form but also prevents chafing and, with its DRYCELL fabric, you’ll keep moisture under control throughout your workout. A power mesh detail on the front is also a ventilation panel, which very cleverly collects and disperses heat. The design may be fussy for some, but it holds you in at all the right places. You’ll look super cool busting out yet another burpee.’
