Why our Moisture Wicking Fabric is Ideal for Hot Yoga

Moisture Wicking Fabric - Courage My Love
Only the best moisture wicking fabric is used to manufacture Courage My Love activewear. Tired of the embarrassing sweat stains on your yoga pants? Our brand was born in the sweaty heat of hot yoga classes.

Ideal for Hot Yoga

The demands of hot yoga have people perspiring so much they might slip in arm balances or feel restricted by wet, tight clothing – we’ve been there! Have you ever felt embarrassed when sweat stains appear near the armpit area or when sweat soaks through the back of your top or yoga pants? The good news is that our moisture wicking fabrics can actually help conceal excessive perspiration.
The material we use in our legskin tights, bra tops, tank tops and leggings is designed to pull moisture away from the skin. As such, the moisture wicking fabric draws sweat and perspiration off your skin and out to the exterior of the fabric. It is much easier for the moisture to evaporate on the surface of the fabric than when it is trapped between the garment and the skin.

Breathable Fabric

In addition to keeping people comfortable while they are working out, our moisture wicking fabrics also have a lovely cooling action for the hot and sweaty body. Our fabric fibres have a hollow core that makes them extremely breathable.
The fibres draw moisture away from the skin, enabling it to spread on the outside of the fabric where the body heat causes it to evaporate. This process creates a cooling sensation while the fabric dries.
Although natural fibres are breathable, cotton and other natural fabrics do a great job of retaining moisture that doesn’t evaporate from your skin, leaving you with a wet, heavy uncomfortable mess pasted to your body.
In other words, if you’re sweating in an all-natural fabric, everyone can tell. Your clothing will likely stick to your skin and get in the way of your exercise.

Moisture Wicking Fabric for Sports

WARNING: some sport fabrics are not made with hollow core fibres!

Beware of cheaper fabrics that are not hollow core and, thus, are not naturally breathable. Some manufacturers use less expensive, solid fibres and then simply treat the finished fabric with a coating that creates moisture wicking.
Although this may be effective initially, as you wash and wear your garment, the coating slowly disappears and you end up with yoga clothes that won’t wash clean!
