Finding and sourcing adequate Girls PE Kit can be a minefield of histrionics and tantrums. The school has set rules on what girls will need for gym lessons and daughters have a definitive idea of what they would not be caught dead in. Finding a happy medium therefore, in which PE kit is comfortable, practical and not cringeworthy has always been problematic.
Luckily, PE kits now benefit from the magical ingredients of good design and modern technology, making them seem a step closer to being cool. Hoodies, polo t-shirts and jogging bottoms are all favourable to the prim and proper gym kits of years gone by. The incorporation of skirts and shorts to create skorts for netball and hockey are both more flattering and more practical.
Modern PE kit for girls benefits from lightweight materials such as cotton that help give shirts and tops a greater freedom of movement. The raglan design employed in PE shirts follows the natural lines of the body, over the shoulders and arms. This improved fit allows girls to feel less swamped in ungainly and unfeminine items.
Fleeces, training jackets and hooded jumpers all add warmth and insulation to winter sports. Little details like ergonomically designed zips that help cold fingers get a grip on them have been added to make the kit wearer-friendly. Slimmer fits for these outer layers help to provide a more flattering shape and insulate the wearer.
With elasticated waistbands, bi-stretch technology and top stitching, girls PE kits have been designed to maximize comfort, durability and flexibility.
