Sweating it out is great for our bodies when we are active and energized, but the aftermath of damp clothing puts a damper on the rest of the day. That's why moisture-wicking clothing is the cure for the on-the-go types who work out but want to feel cool and dry while doing so. Here are a variety of items for women with moisture-wicking technology that really works.
The top under $50:

Workouts are so much better when your shirt isn't soaked with sweat.

The scooped neckline is flattering and athletic-looking, perfect for a gal who wants to work out in style.
