My girlfriend and I are going to start working out together, and are determined to get fit again. One thing I thought would help is to buy her some new workout clothes, to give her a little extra incentive to keep to our new routines.
Do you think that is too obvious? Would you girls read between the lines and think 'gymwear? he must think I could look better'?
And what should I buy? What do you like working out in?
She is a conservative dresser naturally (last seen working out in tshirt and long shorts) but I also want to encourage her to be more comfortable wearing things that show off her figure, and also to let her know that I really like her figure - even before she changes it. Body-wise, she is tall, a little overweight, hourglass-type figure.

Oh man lol.
I mean, yr a sweetheart, and you mean well, but... there's a lot of things that can go wrong, here.
First, a lot of things just aren't gna be her style.
Second, the wrong size could be bad, esp if she has mixed feelings about getting back in the gym. Obvs if you get her a size that's too big, that could just be all kids of oh hell no. LOL But if you get her a size that's too small, that could be demoralizing, too. It's complicated. For some girls, "dieting into a smaller size" is totally goals. For others, it's instant "fuck that" and back to the couch.
Third, she might just have weird hang-ups with some stuff. I have girlfriends who have weirdly strong feelings about gym clothes, especially matching gym clothes. Some of them think you can't wear 2 pieces that match without being an evil hussy who's out to steal someone's husband. (LOL)
Mb you could get her... a gift card? To a place that has activewear?
If you know her tastes VERY well, you might be able to pull this off... but in that case you probably wouldn't be posting the q here.1
