About Us


Thank you for visiting Dress to Sweat! As one of the very first retailers in the DC metropolitan area in the athleisure niche (before the term even existed!), Dress to Sweat has been providing DC women for over 9 years with the most comprehensive selection of high performance, high quality and fashionable active wear.  With over 20 lines, Dress to Sweat’s clients are not only ready for their workout in style, but also ready for whatever their day, and even night, have in store.  Dress to Sweat is continuously scouring the marketplace to ensure that they offer their customers the highest quality cutting edge lines available including Beyond Yoga, ALO, DYI, Philanthropy, Hard Tail, Onzie, Vimmia, Varley, Pheel, Prism, Rese, MZ Wallace bags, and more. 

As a locally owned boutique, our DC area customers shop at Dress to Sweat because they know they can expect personalized and knowledgeable advice to ensure that they select the lines that work best for their body type, fitness goals and lifestyle! We strive to continue this approach online.



My name is Lynn Alloy and I am the founder and owner of Dress to Sweat! I have been a fitness fanatic since the days of The Richard Simmons Show and Jane Fonda videos (definitely dating myself)! As the approach to fitness has dramatically evolved over the years, especially for women, so too have our workout wear options! We have progressed from the days of hiding in our baggy sweatshirts and sweatpants to the nude tights and thong leotards of the Jane Fonda days (oh so comfortable) to today's high tech performance wicking fabrics that are fashion forward and comfortable and as a result are not only worn in the gym but every day/all day by women of all ages! Workout wear is the style of today's active woman – hence the name Athleisure!
