For the past few years, moisture wicking workout gear has been the must-have item for exercise. But what does moisture wicking mean and why is it important when you plan on being active? Moisture wicking fabrics are designed specifically to draw sweat and perspiration off of the skin and to the exterior of the fabric. This is important because moisture and sweat evaporate far more easily from the outside of the clothing than it does when it is trapped underneath the clothes and on your skin. Moisture wicking clothing keeps you comfortable as you are active or exercising, and with the popularity of athleisure, you can create outfits that are as stylish as they are functional.
