Because we wear workout clothes all day every day we’ve become experts on where to find reasonably-priced, cute, comfortable, non-transparent workout clothes. Because we love ya we’re sharing our favorite places to shop for threads to wear to the gym/studio/yoga class/living room (shout out to all my fellow at-home exercisers out there!). Read on…
Life is too short to wear clothes that are too tight or too loose or just plain uncomfortable. Sometimes we tell ourselves, “when I lose 15 pounds, then I’ll shop for some new stuff.” But, you deserve to feel good in your clothes at every size. And working out is so much less uncomfortable when you wear pants that are the right size for your body as it is now.
Here’s where we love to shop.
ThredUp. I am, admittedly, obsessed with Thred-Up. I have the app on my phone and have spent way too much time on it lately. BUT. In my defense, you can find really good prices on almost every brand of active-wear. And other wear. But for the purposes of this post, we’ll focus on their selection of workout gear. I’ve found Lucy, Old Navy, Eddie Bauer, Nike, New Balance and Zella stuff I love there. They’ve got a wide range of sizes too. It’s hit and miss since the selection depends on what people have sold to them. And you have to act fast if you see something you like. I’ve taken to just adding anything that I think might be a winner to my cart and then I go in and review it later, taking out things that don’t look so great on second glance. But if you see something that’s a “maybe” and you don’t grab it, it’s really hard to find it again.
Old Navy. Ah, Old Navy. It’s not just for flip-flops and denim short-alls anymore, people. Nikki gets a ton of her stuff there. If she’s wearing a cute, colorful tank or fun workout capris, chances are they came from Old Navy. She loves the compression leggings they sell. So, if you’re into those, check out Old Navy. I’m not really a compression pant kind of girl, but there are usually loads of tees and tanks that appeal to me.
Kohl’s. Yet another Nikki recommendation. Again, most of the big active-wear brands at a reasonable price. I get my Asics workout shoes there for around $40. Also love their workout jacket/hoodie collection.
Amazon. Love these flare-style workout capris I got through Amazon. They’re yoga pant material and not compression fit. So, super-comfortable and flattering. The selection at Amazon is quite large, so browsing is difficult. But if you have time and kind of know what you want, you can get some good deals.
Poshmark. Another online secondhand store, like ThredUp. However, unlike ThredUp you are buying from individuals who have items for sale, not from a centralized PoshMark store. But, Poshmark is where I found a replacement for my very favorite Eddie Bauer active tank.
