Default Wearing tight clothes when working out so everything dosen't flop around???

Anyone else have to do this? I have a good amount of loose skin/fat on my stomache(not sure how much of which but it definitely sags quite a bit) Anyways, the only way I can comfortably run is wearing tight clothes, otherwise everything moves and its very uncomfortable.

Sometimes I wish I could throw on a pair of shorts and a normal t-shirt and break into a run...I wonder if this gets better, or those of us with saggy stomaches just have to learn to deal with it...

I usually find bike shorts and a sports bra are sufficient under a tee, but I definitely get the dislike of feeling 'loose'. It's one of the reasons I don't like running, it's hard on the girls AND the battle scars from weight!

shorts tend to ride up the insides of my thighs and drive me crazy....i wear running capris to run in...i also wear a sports bra and then a tight workout shirt over that, like so tight that i have to peel it off when i'm done because it's soaked in sweat and stuck to me...i dont like extra material getting in my way

funny that, because i used to always wear loose clothings because i was self-conscious of my weight....now i wear entirely more form-fitting clothes because the extra material gets in my way and bugs me

Shorts ride up on my thighs and rub them sore and I am constantly having to pull them down so I walk in capris too. I wear a sports bra and a tank top that I twist the back of and tuck in to the back of my capris, lol. I hate feeling fat joggle around when I walk so I prefer tighter clothing.

Like other posters said, I wear workout capris but I also wear TWO sports bras AND a sports tank to hold my girls in (I have triple D's). I think the sports tank also helps with my stomach too.

I do the same thing as her for the sports bras and sports tank. Except I tossed the capris and wear longer shorts now.

Yes I love for everything to be tight & compact otherwise it is a distraction! Sometimes I want to duct-tape my girls & tummy down!! I do wear a pair of yoga pants when I run that have a big band & keeps my tummy in check.
Last thing I want to be while working out is self-conscious.

I hear ya... about wanting to be able to just throw on a tee shirt and a pair of shorts and go for a run... But I'm finding that running in something a little bit more form fitting works better for me and actually seems to help with reducing muscle fatigue (for me at least anyway...) Since I swim and bike as well I tend to gravitate towards multi sport workout cloths as opposed to running specific stuff since it's more versatile and suits my needs better...

Wow 0.o. And I thought it was frustrating with just a regular bra and sports bra over that(I have very average C's) Sports bras drive me crazy because when I start working out I sweat, and it gets soaked...so by the end of my workout, it feels so much heavier

I usually wear capris or long pants on the tighter side because I CANNOT STAND the feeling of my thighs jiggling around. I also finally invested in an industrial strength sports bra (that's the only thing I will splurge on) because "the girls" will be all over the place and throw my back out if I don't. I still stick with regular fit or on the loose side t-shirts because I'm super self conscious of my middle.

I wear leggings to hold the belly in and a sports bra (one with individual cups not a compression sports bra which IMHO does nothing for support and stuff moves around too much) with a t-shirt over it and I stay pretty flop free and I have a lot of belly sag and a 32E chest. When I was bigger and still had a J-cup size, i wore an individual cup sports bra with 2 compression-type sports bras over it plus a t-shirt, and for my belly, the skin wasn't as saggy and floppy so I was able to run in sweatpants. Now I prefer tighter fit leggings to hold in the belly. Up top I don't mind a regular t-shirt though once the chest is well-supported.

I'm new here, just introduced myself yesterday. I haven't been working out yet, but am going to start yoga or pilates this week - I'm going to try them both to see which I prefer. I wear "shapewear" camis much of the time which are long enough to pull down over my tummy and then I wear stretchy panties over the cami to hold it in place. This works well for keeping the extra bits under control under normal circumstances. I was going to try the same for my upcoming classes (under a tee shirt and shorts). Has anyone else tried this approach?

Yikes sweetie, get a better bra and only use one! Proper support is essential and it can definitely be found in large cup sizes. I'm now a 32J (I take a 34J in sports bras, which tend to run tight) and if I can find a solid, comfortable sports bra and only need one, almost anyone can.

Panache, Freya, and Elomi are the three brands I recommend you look at. Not terribly expensive and HIGHLY supportive

This is the one I have and it is excellent, in a full range of sizes. Nothing has secured the girls without mashing them to bits like this bra:

That would cause me to sweat too much A good sports bra under a tee should be good enough. I wear shapewear, or at least long camis, to work under my clothes, and I can't imagine having to workout in them. It's all I can do to peel them off as soon as I get home!
