Do you ever buy a new piece of clothing, convinced that it’s the cutest thing ever and then you only wear it once? It’s a huge disappointment, and feels like you’re throwing away money. I’m always trying to find pieces that will become a regular part of my wardrobe, whether it’s a staple piece that I can use to build up outfit after outfit or a statement that becomes a part of my signature look. And as someone who’s at the gym basically every day, a solid (and comfortable) sports bra that will hold up to some major usage is an absolute dream. I’ve searched high and low for clothes that hit these criteria and this list is the fruit of my labor. 37 items, each one a solid piece that you’ll find yourself wearing over and over. That’s pretty much nothing that could be better…except that they’re all available right now on Amazon and all you have to do is click and cart. Perfection.

Oh, I hear your concerns pouring in, but don’t worry: thin doesn’t mean see through. They’re made from four-way stretch material so that they don’t become transparent when you bend over. I didn’t know it was possible, but they’ve proven it can be done. Oh, and one reviewer even wrote that “If you are trying to make your decision about workout pants, these are awesome…the pants are true to size, and do not cut off circulation.”

Having a solid swimsuit in your wardrobe is always a good choice. If you’re more of a one-piece girl when it comes to swimsuits, then this one has the sexiness of a bikini, while flattering the waistline. This ruffled V neck design compliments any woman’s figure, so no wonder it’s a best-selling swimsuit on Amazon.
