Is it slutty to workout in shorts and a sports bra only?

Today during my workout an older lady commented on my outfit, she said "I bet your mother is real proud of you when you wear that huh? (I was wearing a sports bra and shorts) I told her "excuse me?" Then she said "you don't have to dress so slutty when you workout." At this point I wanted to knock her ass out! I don't think I was dressed slutty, I have worked very hard for my body and I'm not ashamed to show it off! She got to my head tho and I actually put on my hoodie but worst of all she totally killed my vibe for my workout!

  • I don't think it is because of the context. It's working out. It's like if you wear a bikini. At the beach it isn't "slutty" by any means, but if you wore that to work, it would be pretty inappropriate.

    For working out, I don't see shorts and a sports bra as bad. I mean, then I'd have to be also saying that a dude wearing shorts (short or not short) and no shirt would be bad too... Which would make no sense to me. People race like that. It's working out. It is informal and generates lots of sweat.

    People are going to think what people are going to think, but as far as I'm concerned, you were dressed fine. I wouldn't let one person get to your head. Some people are just sensitive.

  • Slutty is when you try to seduce other man.. Or maybe women... Dressing anyway you want does not makes you Slutty... Next time you see that women tell her, you aren't insecure about you body and worked hard to achieve it and are no scared to show it off... Although you are not seducing anyone...

    Yeah!.. You look pretty Georgous with bold looks, that girl was just jealous

  • Only you know your real intentions. If your purpose is to be more agile during your workout with minimal fabric then of course its ok. But if you're wearing it to attract attention and look sexy then its not sports related and I wouldn't think its necessary.

  • The thing with older people is they often have not got use to the clothes women wear these days. That was very rude of her, it is up to you what you wear and no one else. Maybe she was jealous because she does not have a body like you? Some women get bitter about younger women's bodies when they get older. I think she is jealous because she is no longer young and does not have the body you do.

  • The gym is the one place you have every right to be conceded if that is what you want. Your advancement of your body's considerable progress OR your want to showcase while you workout (if that is the case) is NOT subject to scrutiny by some prude.
    These people's criticisms of such a nature are just their deepest insecurities manifest. They are frustrated at the time it will take them to achieve what you have, and are depressed at the prospect of having to put forth said effort.
    I know this sounds like a total White Knight pep talk or that I'm saying this because I'm a guy who would NEVER under-appreciate a good female body in a short set, but the truth is the truth in this instance.
    I can't stand women who show up at the gym in make-up and/or jewelry. They are indicative to people who waste time sitting on machines and taking up space in one area or another.
    If these types (I'm rambling, I know) ask for help, I just tell them to do it like they see it on TV. I'm not wasting my time explaining something to someone that a 3rd grader could figure out on their own.

  • This lady had really no right to say that to you.. but everyone is entitled to have an opinion on everything.. but she should have in this case kept that comment to herself.. I see nothing wrong with it and to me a women looks beautiful in what ever she wants to wear.

    The only thing that I would have done if you say had been there the same time I was.. and dressed in what you had on.. would be to just smile and maybe hope my smile was noticed by you and a smile or some form of conversation maybe was returned.. but I would not at all expect anything by me doing this.. I will settle for the sweet smile you just put on my face

    And why the fuck does she think she had any right to just walk up to someone else in a gym and judge them for what they're wearing?

  • Earning the title of 'slutty' requires much more than putting on some clothes. It's like saying "I'm holding a sword therefore I'm a ninja." No, it doesn't work like that..

  • Its open to personal interpretation, different people have different opinions about what qualifies as slutty and what doesn't. Generally tho, its somewhat relative to what most of the girls around you are wearing.

  • It is not slutty at all. I even hate the word so I would never dream of using it even in this context.

    You should be proud of the work you put into your body. And I understand why she ruined your "Day" today.

  • unless you're somewhere with a dresscode (apparently my gym had some rule about not being allowed to show your stomach - i only know because a personal trainer came and told me once when i was running and tucked my baggy shirt under my bra because it was bugging me) you can wear whatever you want. guys run without shirts all the time, why can't a girl wear just a sports bra?

  • I usually wear a big t shirt with the arms cut out over. So not in "just" a sports bra, but you can easily see it. I think there's absolutely ZERO about that that is inappropriate.

    This is the cover of Sports Illustrated for fuck's sake.

  • Fuck no! It's hot! I grew up on a farm and all Summer long the guys got to take their shirts off to work in the sweltering heat and I had to keep my shirt on unless I wanted to be called a slut, its a ridiculous double standard. Wear whatever the hell you're most comfortable in!

  • It's not slutty I just think it's more of attention seeking there's a time and place for it like the beach or something cause when your working out your bending over stretching blah blah blah it just looks or can look somewhat sexual to people and attention seeking
