The activewear market has exploded in the past few years with countless new workout gear and athleisure brands — not to mention that just about every fashion retailer has added or expanded its activewear selection. There’s a lot to go through when it comes to sports bras, running tights, and yoga tank tops. Below are my favorite places to shop for workout gear.
Old Navy is your best bet for affordable and stylist pieces. I always go there first to find what I’m looking for. The prices can’t be beaten and I’ve never had a problem with the quality. Gap fits in this category too. They include a wide range of workout gear sizes and dedicated active sections for plus,petite, and tall girls, which means those leggings will actually be the right length and fit. I buy talls in all of them.
Nordstrom is where I go for name-brands, like Nike and Under Armour . They have so many options plus, their free shipping/returns policy can’t be beaten! The brand, Zella has my favorite leggings. I can wear them outside of working out too!
Carbon 38 is more of a boutique-type of online store so more along the lines of Lululemon pricing but the selection is expertly curated. They have mesh bras, moto leggings, and trendy tops.
