(HealthDay News) -- Your workout attire doesn't have to be fancy, but it should be geared toward making exercise more comfortable.

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases suggests:

  • Choose clothes made from fabrics designed to absorb sweat.
  • Dress lightweight, so you can move easier.
  • Wear shorts made of Spandex to prevent chafing on the inner thighs.
  • Women should wear a supportive sports bra.
