I always swore that it didn’t matter what you wore to exercise in. I mean, you’re only going to get all sweaty and dirty in it right? Well, certain fabrics perform and hold up much better than others during a grueling gym sesh so there is a reason that these products exist. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I made my first Lululemon purchase and now I’m hooked. I was initially turned off by how pricey their pieces are but I can tell worlds of difference in the quality over the pieces I used to wear from Target and Old Navy. Today I’m sharing my Lululemon workout wear favorites that I don’t know how I ever lived without:
1. Energy Bra
This is hands down the best sports bra I’ve ever tried. It has a comfortable moisture wicking fabric, amazing support and comes in tons of colors. It’s great for high impact activities like running or HIIT workouts but I wear it for spin classes and strength training too. I wear a size 6 in this style and am typically a small in tops.
If you’re new to the store, Lululemon has their own language when it comes to their fabrics. These are one of my favorite Lululemon workout wear pieces and I only buy them in the Luxtreme fabric. I also have these in several lengths and colors and LOVE them. One thing I cannot stand is having to pull up my leggings a zillion times during a workout. These stay put the entire time and I love the high rise and compression fit. . It’s smooth to the touch and is one of the more durable fabrics they make. I wear these primarily for strength training, running or lower impact activities. I wear a size 4 in this style and am typically a size 2-4 in bottoms.
This is the only Lululemon pant that I do not need to get hemmed (ha!) These are made of their Nulux fabric which is another of their more durable fabrics. I love the side pockets and reflective details. They have a very lightweight barely there feel but give great support and coverage. I love them for running and cycle classes. I also wear these in a size 4.
I love this style because they have a relaxed leg opening that is great for muscular thighs and a comfortable soft elastic waistband. I love the long length and don’t find myself pulling at them constantly during a workout. I wear them for hiking, leg day and any outdoor exercising. Their shorts do run small so I size up to a 6 in these.
This tank is made of the most perfect lightweight breathable fabric. The cut is slightly relaxed but runs true to size and comes in tons of colors. I like to tie them in a knot for a fun little flair. I’m typically a small in tops and wear a size 6 in this style.
I absolutely love the open back detailing of this style. It has the same lightweight breathable fabrication of the Love Tank and also comes in tons of colors. It can be worn untied for a loose and flowy look or you can tie it up as tight as you’d like. I also wear this tank in a size small.
