5 of the Best Places to Buy Affordable Workout Clothes
Trying to get fit but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on good workout gear? I HEAR YOU. When I first got really into fitness a few years ago, I felt overwhelmed with how expensive things were. How is a tank top i’m going to sweat in $45? Are Lululemon leggings really worth shelling out $125 for? Do I have to buy new running shoes every other month? Jeez.
After a while of trying out a few things here and there to see what was worth making an investment on and what wasn’t, I finally have some favorites that I wear day in and day out to the gym. Most of these pieces are super affordable, and are high quality enough that they will last throughout hard workouts, sweating, and being thrown in the washer time and time again. Getting fit shouldn’t be expensive, ya feel? Let’s dive in to some of my favorite places to buy affordable workout clothes.
All of the above are my favorite budget friendly workout wear brands. They are all awesome quality, really fun prints, and have great return policies so they’re worth trying out to see if you like them! Now, let’s break down my favorite items by category.
Tops (tanks, t-shirts)
Best specific items:
Adidas Linear Tank – The god send of all tank tops: The Adidas Linear Tank. This tank is the perfect length and covers your butt, plus it’s a high neck so you don’t have to worry about your goodies popping out during your workout. I love this for circuits, yoga, and everything else in between. It’s available on Amazon Prime here and on the Adidas website here.
Nike Graphic Training Tank – I’m not huge on logo tanks, but Nike does this one so right. It’s a high neck which i’m all about, and Dri-Fit material which n e v e r sticks to you. I hate nothing more than a workout tank that sticks to my butt or stomach when working on and ends up looking like a static-y mess. That’s why i’m obsessed with this tank – it moves with you and always looks flattering. Pick this up here.
Old Navy Cross Back Tank – Old Navy released an active wear line a few years ago, and i’ve been all about it ever since. One of the items I love is this Cross Back Tank. It’s perefct for high intensity workouts when you’re jumping around or yoga when you’re downward dog-ing and need your tank to stay in place.
Best specific items:
Nike Women’s Victory Bra – In my search for the perfect sports bra years ago, I stumbled upon the Nike Victory Bra and haven’t strayed since. I own about 10 of these sports bras and wear them every day! They retail for about $30 which is a really good deal, and are even cheaper when you pick them up at Kohl’shere. Seriously this will be your new favorite.
Strappy Sports Bra – When i’m doing a less intense workout like yoga, I often opt for this Strappy Sports Bra. It’s cute, effective, and a great price ($16). In full transparency, i’ve owned this exact Lululemon bra, and this one is just as nice.
Bottoms (shorts + leggings)
Best specific items:
90 Degree By Reflex Interlink Legging – Seriously, I tell EVERYONE about these leggings. They are comparable to Lululemon and Athleta, and are half the price. These leggings are made out of a buttery soft material that moves with you, all while holding you in. They are one of the only pairs of leggings I wear consistently, and you can’t beat the $25 price tag. BUY THESE ASAP.
Under Armour Play Up Short – While I often opt for leggings for gym workouts, if I take my workout outside on a hot day, I wear shorts. A lot of workout shorts are too short and ride up your a$$ (excuse my french), but this beautiful pair doesn’t. They are long enough to cover your butt no matter how you’re jumping, crunching, or running, but not too long that they get in the way. These are my go to shorts and retail around $30.
Senita High Rise Capris – These are another favorite of mine. I am a huge fan of how high Senita’s leggings come up and love how they never feel like they’re slipping down. They also have tons of fun prints. Shop them here.
