9 sportswear brands that are designed for Asians

If you’ve ever shopped for workout clothes at major activewear labels, you may get frustrated whenever you get to the fitting room with the design you like.

They’re always either too long, too oversized, too tight, or worse – they tend to over-accentuate the dreaded cameltoe.

Well, you can now cast your worries aside because there’s a crop of sportswear brands that tailors workout apparel specifically for Asians.

Ahead, check out our compilation of activewear brands that offer stylish yet comfortable sportswear that fit Asian bodies perfectly.

MYË is a fairly new sustainable activewear brand from Singapore for those who want to look and feel their best while being kind to the planet.

Committed to offering only the best for its customers and the environment, MYË recycles plastic waste into premium athleisure clothing in hopes of helping its community lead more sustainable lives.

The brand’s sports bras, leggings, and shorts are made exclusively from 100% post-consumer recycled PET plastic (think disposable water bottles), and a workout set from the brand could be produced from up to 19 recycled bottles.

Fun fact: The brand’s first collection has recycled around 4,500 plastic bottles into luxurious athleisure clothing!

Striking the perfect balance between compression and comfort, MYË’s sustainable sets are ideal for any activity – lunch, lounge, lunge, and everything in between.

Besides breathing new life into discarded plastic bottles, MYË’s recycled activewear also requires an estimated 60% less energy and 94% less water to make, releasing approximately 32% less carbon dioxide than its virgin polyester counterparts.

Additionally, the brand also plants a tree with One Tree Planted for every order placed, manufactures in small batches, and ships its orders in 100% plastic-free packaging.

Designed with Perk by Kate’s signature attention to detail, the “In Pursuit Of” collection comprises a series of sports bras and leggings that are made for yoga, coffee runs with your buddies, and everything in between.

The range of activewear does away with overly taut bands or an uncomfortable fit – and you can even find leggings that won’t over-accentuate the cameltoe.

For comfortable activewear that doesn’t break the bank, look no further than Uniqlo. The Japanese fashion giant offers the widest range of sportswear in an array of sizes and colours.

We like that the full-length leggings hit just at the ankles so there’s no need to worry about folding up your leggings before you work out.

Another major plus point? The waist band doesn’t roll up when you sit!
