The 5 Best Activewear Brands – the Absolute Best Leggings, Sports Bras, Active and Lounge Wear
With so many activewear brands out there right now, who really makes the best activewear? As you guys know, I’m obsessed with cute, chic exercise wear, and comfy active clothes are what I rely whether I’m flying on red-eyes and looking for comfortable, cute travel outfits, or I’m getting my resort workout in, doing a yoga class, or working from home in loungewear. But it can be overwhelming to navigate the differences in quality and fits between activewear brands and decide which activewear brand is best for you, which is where I come in.
I’ve tried and tested SO many activewear brands by now that I felt it was time to tell you all what I really think. So here are my five favorite activewear brands – a little about them, their brand, their fits, and my favorite products from them.
Best activewear brand for: High quality leggings, super soft fabrics, and cute matchy activewear outfits
If Alo were a destination they’d be: Beverly Hills or Miami
The best Alo Yoga products I own:
I really recommend anything and everything in their Alosoft fabric – it’s the best. I highly recommend their high-waisted leggings – it’s the best fit in a legging I’ve ever had – I’d recommend sizing down.
I’m obsessed with this new color by Alo – Marina – it’s even prettier in person and POPS. I love it!! Their colors always sell out pretty fast so I’d jump on it if they still have your size!
I’m obsessed with these leggings – as you guys know – and this color is the BEST.
Love this comfy cropped sweatshirt.
I’ve also been wearing this knot bra a TON lately – I don’t tie it quite this tight so it covers more stomach. Love it.
Best activewear brand for: quality and shorts!!
If Lululemon were a destination, they’d be: Hawaii. Everyone loves Hawaii, and everyone loves Lulu.
They’re all I wear for shorts (I have 3 pairs of the same white ones, pictured below, LOL), and same for men’s shorts – my fiance swears by Lululemon shorts, too, and has about 5 pairs.
Best activewear brand for: Hiking, support, and structured fits
If Outdoor Voices were a destination they’d be: Banff
They call themselves ‘technical apparel for recreation’ and I think that very much ‘fits’ their products. I wear my outdoor voices set for hiking and more outdoorsy recreation. It’s a strong fabric, and the fit is super flattering. It makes you want to climb a mountain – I feel like a boss when I put on my Outdoor Voices set.
The best Outdoor Voices products I own:
I LOVE the fit of these crop top sports bras – highly recommend.
Best activewear brand for: Cozy comfy basics in super-soft fabrics
If Beyond Yoga were a destination it’d be: Charleston, with its feel-good fabrics and sweet designs, this comfy, cozy brand reminds me of the South.
YALL – I LOVE Beyond Yoga. Their fabrics are SO soft, which is super important to me when it comes to having comfy and cute loungewear to WFH or relax around the house in.
The best Beyond Yoga products I own:
Best activewear brand for: show-stopping style
If Carbon 38 were a travel destination, it’d be NYC. High fashion and non-stop.
What products I love from them:
THE BEST RUNNING SHOES IN THE WORLD
If I can recommend you guys one thing that is 100% worth every penny – it’s these running/walking/travel everyday sneaker shoe – that are literally the best and comfiest in the world. I love that they’re lace-less so they slip on so comfortably – so perfect for airport security, morning runs, ANYTHING and everything. And they’re so cute and modern. LOVE THEM.
