Girls’ Tennis Clothing Comes Of Age

A Girl’s Tennis Clothing Is Fashioned By Her Mother’s Desires

The styles and scope of girls’ tennis clothing has recently blossomed to match the rapid growth of fashionable women’s tennis clothing, and seems to gain momentum year on year.

There’s a twin conflicting desire for women to both model their tennis outfits on the most successful and stylish players in the game, and yet at the same time look different, exclusive and unique.

There’s yet another desire to wear state-of-the-art apparel that maximizes protection and cooling on court, to gain a competitive advantage as the tennis match ‘heats up’. Most women’s tennis apparel now contains technology to protect against the sun’s rays, to ward off odor-causing bacteria growth, to cool the skin by efficiently channeling away moisture, and even to cushion and support muscles for optimum performance.

Naturally, mothers want their fledgling tennis stars to benefit from all these tennis clothing attributes, in style and textile technology. Tennis clothes manufacturers have catered to this demand with dresses. skirts, skorts, tops and shoes for girls that sport many or all of the features of their adult counterpart.

This is good business sense on the part of tennis apparel manufacturers like Adidas, Nike, Fila, Prince, Babolat etc. Once a young lady gets to liking a particular tennis brand, she’ll likely stay loyal throughout her tennis years.

The Tennis Apparel Dark Ages

Way back in the early 1970s, at about the time that Chris Evert was emerging as a world class tennis player, a woman called Marilyn Kosten was getting very frustrated at the lack of pretty tennis clothing available to buy for her two daughters, who were about to compete in junior tennis competitions. She channeled that frustration into forming her own tennis apparel business, designing the girls’ clothing herself.

Her business really took off in 1977, when a young rising star called Tracy Austin wore one of Marilyn’s dresses during her passage to victory at the US Open. Tracy also wore the dress at Wimbledon, and so introduced this innovative and stylish girl’s tennis clothing to a much wider audience.

Three and a half decades later, tennis apparel has changed out of all recognition. Fashion is even more to the fore, vying with sports clothing fabric technology to yield a fusion of style and function that shapes every new garment. 100% cotton is now a rarity, with subtle combinations of man-made fibres best able to offer the comfort and mobility demanded by today’s athletes.

Mary Kosten’s ‘Little Miss tennis’ business is still flourishing, and now caters to young boy’s tennis clothing needs as well, with the LMT range. Now, all the major tennis gear manufacturers have girl’s, boy’s or unisex kids tennis apparel lines alongside their adult clothing, so lack of choice is no longer an issue.

Girl’s And Women’s Tennis Fashion Merge

Women who look to the high-fashion, cutting-edge tennis apparel worn by the leading players for inspiration, can now encourage their daughters to do the same. For example, the identical Adidas adilibria tennis dress recently co-designed and worn by Ana Ivanovic was available in girls’ sizes with all the ‘Climacool’ technology and comfort meshing of the adult dress. Other familiar Adidas tennis lines like ‘Barricade’, ‘Edge’ and ‘Competition’ also have their girl-sized counterparts, so mother and daughter can wear complementary apparel at the tennis club.

Nike, as you might expect, have their own girls tennis clothing lines such as ‘Athlete’, that mirror the apparel worn by the women. Like Adidas, there’s plenty of variety in dresses, skirts, skorts, shirts, tennis shoes and accessories, with comfort features like Dri-FIT, to give the same cooling and moisture management as the adult version.

Fila, with two of the game’s big hitters, Kim Clijsters and Svetlana Kuznetsova on their books, is hot on the heels of the two largest tennis apparel manufacturers, Adidas and Nike, with it’s own girls’ selection. They produce junior varieties of familiar women’s tennis favorites like the ‘Essenza’ tennis dress. These dresses are made with sun protective material, to reduce UV damage to young ladies’ skins. This can be an important consideration in warmer climes where tennis is an outdoor activity.

Tennis Apparel For Those Rebellious Years

There will come a time when your young lady would rather wear distinctive (tennis) clothing than try to copy her mother as she moves into adulthood. There’s a tennis apparel manufacturer keen to cater to these more rebellious instincts – DUC. They’re happy that their clothing isn’t designed for people too far into their 20s or beyond. They draw a little from the history of women’s tennis dress with subtle pleating, but make it asymmetrical to keep abreast of the times.

Much of the clothing is labeled with assertive, slightly racy tags like ‘Dominate’ (dress), ‘Compete’ (skirt), ‘Rush’ (racer-back top) and 2-Timer (reversible top), and accentuates feminine contours. The 2-Timer top actually refers to it’s reversible two-tops-in-one feature, which when combined with the large choice of colors and reversible skirt, creates a wide range of styles – great for emphasizing your unique style. Reversing your apparel and changing your look during a match might also have beneficial unsettling effects on your opponent. Though cutting edge in design, DUC tennis clothing lacks none of the comfort features prerequisite in modern tennis clothing.

So, from youngster to young women, varied, vibrant, in vogue girl’s tennis clothing is in plentiful supply. Thanks to determined women like Marilyn Kosten, the ‘dark ages’ are over, and girls can revel in the choice of cutting-edge tennis apparel that was until recently the sole preserve of their parents.

What Behavior Is Required When Dating Girls?

According to some men, dating girls can be a challenge. However, if a person uses the right channels when they are dating, a male can find dating women to be a fun and enjoyable experience. Dating women is not as hard a task as many people often think. So what is required when dating girls? Firstly, a man needs to ensure that they look presentable and groomed. No woman would like to go on a date with a man who looks like a charcoal burner. The man should also ensure that they look decent yet elegant as many women love men who can take care of themselves.

If someone wants to impress a woman, they should take their time and compliment her. It is known that women love compliments. They can also tell her that she looks beautiful when she smiles or that she looks more gorgeous in high heels. On the first date with her, briefly ask her about her day and then in a few words, the man should talk about himself and what he looks for in a companion. If someone is using a website to find their perfect match, they need to be very careful and avoid making common mistakes that many people do when they are dating online.

Women are known to be very sensitive and complex human beings and therefore when two people are dating, the male has to ensure that he is being himself. This is a problem that many people have, when they are using a website for dating girls. Another thing to consider when searching for a soul mate is to be confident when someone is dating. Confidence is a thing that some men lack. If someone lacks confidence, this can be a turn off to a woman and this will be a golden opportunity that they may let slip from their hands.

Some women are attracted to men who are well-built and who can freely strike a conversation with them. One mistake that many men do is that they talk more about themselves and do not engage the other partner. However, if a male does not want their date to be a disaster hen dating girls, he has to listen and give their partner a chance to talk. Every woman wants a man who pays attention when she is talking. The male should ensure that he listens carefully and looks into her eyes when she talks and be assured of getting a second date. After the date is over, the male should call her to ensure that she arrived home safely.

To conclude, when dating girls, a man should be confident and take interest in what the women is saying and doing. If they do take an interest and find that there is an attraction between the two, it is then possible for the male and female to continue and develop their relationship.

Should You Just Be Yourself Around Girls?

What most men don’t understand is when they say to themselves

“I’ll just be myself and see how it goes” is that they are setting themselves up for immediate failure with women.

Unless you’re a complete natural with women and you know your game is going to work.. “Winging it or being yourself” just doesn’t work…but if you’re that guy then this site is probably not for you anyways.

When you’re just gonna be yourself that pretty much means you’re going to just wing it.

It really has nothing to do with being yourself. It’s actually just the easy way out because then you don’t have to learn anything new about dating, pick up and relationships.

Why talk to a girl at all if you have no purpose, intent, plan, or reason why you are talking to that girl.

What if when it came to running your business you said “I’m just going to be myself and see if anyone buys my product.” Your business would probably blow, because you have no business plan, processes, and no ways to bring in new customers.

All you’re counting on is pure luck.

You’ll always be reactive to whatever she says to you instead of being proactive and truly playing the game.See what most guys don’t get is that “yourself” or your character will shine through on your non-verbal channels almost all the time. Plus, there’s plenty of room for you to be yourself, just within certain steps and format of what is going to be socially, mentally and physically pleasing to your target.

And girls will find you much more attractive when you are yourself which basically means you don’t let her control your responses. Or to be more technical don’t just be a conformist to try to get her to like you.

When she says:

“I like this song”

Do you say “me to”or…

“This song sucks” because you actually think the song sucks?

Finally, I just want to finish off with a thought from one of my favorite comedians Katt Williams. He talks about how when people say “don’t let the money change you”

And he goes on to explain why the hell would you want more money if you didn’t want something to change. When I started learning how to pick up girls I wasn’t like “I just want to be myself” because it was just a cop out.

I wanted to be changed. More able to pick up more girls, faster, hotter, and easier. Be more confident, happier, and be able to manage relationships.

You can stay true to all your beliefs, morals, and opinions, just want to be changed if you really really want to get better in this area of your life.

Later fellas,
