I’m not going to lie to you, I took a Flybarre class about a year ago and almost died it was so hard. As in, I literally laid on the floor at one point praying to God it was almost over. After a year of trying to forget how hellish the class was, I went back for another round. This time in better shape and a better feeling for what the class would be. To my surprise, the class had become more barre oriented, less intense, and much more of what I was expecting. And as it’s my job to report on what’s what in the fitness fashion industry, I spent my time eyeing the great activewear the girls were wearing and THIS is what you need to be wearing to Flybarre right now.
The extra long legging: Barre has taken the legging and turned it into a stirrup pant, minus the stirrup. Keeps your feet covered and warm, while exposing the ball of your foot so you don’t slip during any of the raised plié squats or planks. The Plie Tight from Athleta is right on trend, and totally on sale.
The cute, strappy bra: You don’t need a super supportive bra for a barre class, so this is the perfect time to buy that adorable, strappy bra you’ve been eyeing. My favorite, completely on trend bra this season? The Cut Bra from Alala. Balconette style that gives great shape, with a great cut out back to show off.
The Basic Tank: The basic fitness tank is back in style. The loungey oversized look is out. The MPG Sport Ivory tank is spot on for a comfy, fitted look that also looks great with white shorts, and just wait until you feel this fabric.
That’s all you need to know to take a Flybarre, or any barre class. Pulse it out and tone it up!
