    I wear Victoria’s Secret. I’ve tried almost all of the brands listed but I aways go back to Victoria’s Secret. The fit is better for my body type and they seem to last longer.

    Honestly, Old Navy makes AWESOME workout capris.  They are inexpensive, last a while, and they even have a little pocket.  I’m super picky about what capris I’ll run in and theirs are great.  They have sales on the workout clothes all the time so you can usually get them for a little cheaper than normal price which is already pretty low.

    On your list, I prefer Fabletics (because I can get a whole outfit for less than the cost of one pair of leggings from most of the other brands on that list). I also like Gap’s Gfast capris.

    indyJEEP:  I have gap body, old navy compression, tuft athletics, UA compression, UA fitted, and lululemon.  

    If everything is clean at once, I always go for the lulus.  I’m partial to the Run Inspire IIs.  I have several pairs.  I keep buying cheaper ones and I push past them to dig for my lulus every time.  My 2nd choice is a toss up between UA compression and the gap body fitted ones.  

    I prefer to workout in capris and fitted ones.  I don’t want any fabric catching or bunching. 

    I do the same with shirts.  I push past everything to find my lulu CRBs.  I have 6 and they are almost always in the wash.  

    The only thing I don’t like about lulu is their bras.  I haven’t found any I like.  I prefer the UA ones. 

     

    Edited: I did have a pair of Nikes I liked quite a bit.  I bought them a few years ago, they literally fell apart in the wash.  I can’t get that same fit now.  They did last a while though.  But I have lulus that are more than 10 years old that are still going strong (I used to teach fitness classes every day, I wore these day in and day out.)

    I’ve been wearing Spalding. They come in petite, which is hard to find and they seem to wear as good as others I’ve tried.

    I also use VS pretty much exclusively. They’re most comfortable in my opinion.

    Honestly, I love the ones they sell at Old Navy. They’re cheap, so I don’t feel bad if I wear them to Mudders or in the rain, and they fit my plus-sized butt just fine (something I can’t say for Lululemons or most of the others).

    I just bought a pair of Spanx maternity yoga pants the other day, and they’re sososo amazing! Although pricey. Before the Spanx, Old Navy were actually my favorite. 19/20 I try on do nothing to “smooth” things out… It’s a struggle.

    I don’t know the brand, but I have the cutest leggings from Target and every time I wear them to the gym I get compliments! Lol. And they are comfy too.

    I love the Victoria’s secret Pink collection leggings. The tops are so cute, and very comfortable.

    Honestly I just wear the ones from Walmart. I can’t imagine spending over $20 for something I’m just going to sweat in. They’re opaque, and fit well which is all I ask for.

    I refuse to spend a ton on clothes I’m just gonna sweat in… Kohls’ Tek Gear fits well and is inepxensive.

    I get almost all of my workout gear at TJ MAXX (I can’t find good sport bras there). From all the different brands I’ve purchased there, this brand called Kyodan makes the best capris. They range between $15-$20.
