What do you see whenever you go to the gym? Maybe you'll see a lot of men wearing only tank tops, and sometimes they won't even wear anything at the top.
But what about women? Do you see them wearing similar clothes? Well, this is what one woman realized when she went to the gym with only a sports bra on top.
This is because she was once a very competitive swimmer who also happened to be a lifeguard.
However, she does not like wearing too much whenever she is at the gym.
Think about it. The males in the gym can simply wear a tank that sometimes reveals their nipples, and yet it is perfectly okay.
The editor wanted her to go the gym with only a sports bra on top.
She did not want people to notice her so much, especially when she starts sweating.
At first, she felt weird that she was showing her stomach, but she realized that it doesn't really matter.
This was because she was still nervous. But the next day she decided to wear only the sports bra because she had gained more confidence.
That's right. Even though there were still some men who gave a star and one person who even stopped exercising to check her out, she handled the situation well.
Even though she did not have an amazing body, she was still proud because she was able to accomplish a lot of exercises.
She hopes that unwarranted sexualization by males will no longer occur inside and outside the gym.
