5 Places to Buy Cheap Workout Clothes Without Sacrificing Quality
Here at Prettyfitbox, we absolutely adore Lululemon, but let's face it—those fashion-forward, moisture-wicking, butt-enhancing yoga pants come at a price. And it's not just Lululemon that gives shoppers sticker shock; activewear prices tend to be high across the board. Some of us just can't stomach the idea of dishing out 200 bucks for an outfit we're just going to sweat in. The good news: there are tons of lower-priced but still high-quality options out there. Here, our favorite brands for cheap workout clothes.
C9 Champion at Target offers fashionable activewear at a discounted price, which explains its huge popularity and appeal. You'll often find supportive sports bras, moisture-wicking tops, and trendy leggings for under $20 apiece, and many of Health's editors swear by C9. Right now, we love the JoyLab Premium Moto Leggings. With the chic evergreen hue and moto-inspired design running down the leg, your fellow gym-goers will assume you spent a heck of a lot more than 40 bucks. Plus, these leggings feature moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool and dry, as well as a compression fit that hugs you in tight.
Old Navy's line of workout apparel is inexpensive, while still being comfortable, supportive, and cute. The Go-Dry Keyhole Back Tank blends tech and style with moisture-wicking fabric and a bold color that will motivate you through the toughest HIIT workout. In addition to Old Navy's tops, we are big fans of the brand's compression leggings, which come in a variety of colors and patterns that rivals more expensive brands.
Marika is a little pricier than Old Navy and Target, with leggings in the $50 range and tops starting at around $30. Still, that's more than reasonable when you consider many brands of similar quality and style start at double that. This racerback Kelly Sports Bra is made to be supportive enough for high-impact workouts. The molded cup shapes add extra support to your chest while the thick straps add comfort and security to your workout. Not to mention, the various colors it's offered in are beautiful.
In addition to Nike, Adidas, and other big-name brands, Kohl's has a huge assortment of fitness clothes from Tek Gear. Stock up on basic wicking tees, sports bras, and much more—at these prices, you may be able to afford to buy a few of each. Tek Gear offers more than just basics, though; these Tek Gear Shapewear Shirred Capri Workout Leggings are right on trend.
These sexy mesh panel leggings will not only have you feeling but look the coolest girl within the room (both literally and figuratively) with moisture-wicking fabric and subtle mesh paneling on the thighs to indicate simply a touch of skin and it's easy to see why we're obsessed with mesh panel leggings.
