If you are making your health a priority this year, there is no better motivation than treating yourself to some new workout gear. There are almost too many options in the market so it can be tricky to figure out which brands really have superior quality and which do not. The last thing you want is for your new expensive yoga pants to get damaged in the wash after just a few cycles. I’ve narrowed down my recommendations to a few brands you should definitely check out! The following list is where to shop for the most high-quality, stylish workout gear so you can focus on your health this year!
If you’re at all on a budget, Amazon is a great resource for high-quality sports bras, yoga pants, and fitness gear! I think you’ll be surprised at how comfortable, durable and lightweight its pieces are, making it a really optimal choice for both those who might be new to athleisure or wanting to expand their collection. As a bonus, the pieces could also be adapted into your everyday wear regardless of if you have time to squeeze a workout in or not! Shop my picks below.
I have been a huge fan of the products at Outdoor Voices and if there is any gear that will get you motivated – it is this! They are known for their really fun color blocking patterns and pastel, muted colors, which you will see repeated on a lot of their styles. One of the best things about Outdoor Voices too is their focus on sustainability. They utilize materials like RecPoiy (recycled PET) and MegaFleece (recycled wool). Outdoor Voices is definitely my number one choice when it comes to comfort. The leggings are definitely some of the softest I have ever owned!
This is a lesser known athletic gear company but one that should definitely be on your radar! NEIWAI focuses on empowering women with functional clothing that accentuates natural beauty. I recently received their one-size wireless bra that adapts and molds to your body. It is so comfortable and certainly a bra that could be worn everyday or for non-impact workouts. In addition to the usual leggings and sports bras, NEIWAI also offers a beautiful collection of ballet gear which includes things like their satin splice sweatpants
If you are someone who definitely appreciates stylish workout gear, let me introduce you to Bandier! They feature a collection of different brands that all take their workout clothing to a new level. You can tell they believe the more fun and engaging the items are, the more likely you are going to stay motivated. I love their options of bright colors and their innovative designs. This is the place to shop if you are seeking workout clothes that are unique and out-of-the-box.
For the women who are constantly doing it all (balancing a full-time family and career), Sweaty Betty is the perfect place to shop for activewear. They offer everything from high-performance, sculpting leggings to cozy sweatshirts more ideal for throwing on as you dash from gym to grocery store. Sweaty Betty has an abundance of leggings with different functionalities, so I highly recommend taking their quiz to see which style suits your lifestyle best!
Live the Process
Fashion definitely meets functionality at Live the Process. I was immediately drawn to the brand because of their gorgeous, feminine take on athletic gear. For instance, the flattering criss-cross waits on the Orion Legging or the daring open-back on the Corset Grid bra. Live the Process is an activewear brand I am definitely keeping my eye on for 2021 since their workout clothing is so easy and liveable and can be incorporated into your daily wardrobe.
