I also LOVE Athleta. It’s a little pricey, so I just shop the sales. But… they have petite sizing in pants, which I love. Everything fits just right. If you need a different fit, you might consider that if you’re not particularly tall.

I also enjoy underarmor for their athletic shirts. They breathe amazingly well and hold up in the machine when I wash them. 

For pants, I also wear Outdoor Voices for general wear and Victoria’s Secret for yoga leggings.

I love Under Armour sports bras! You could usually find them on sale at the outlet malls. Since you’re in my area – check out the Aurora Outlet Mall. They have great deals at their store there. I’m going there this weekend myself.

Honestly, I think Target’s Champion C9 brand is great. I have UA, Nike, Adidas, and I love my bargain workout clothes the most.

Do you have outlets near you? I live less than 2 hours aways from a Lululemon and a Nike outlet and I’ve got to say you can get some STEALS there. I only go there maybe once a year and load up on items. At the Lululemon outlet I once got a workout shirt for $9 and a bra for $20! Worth checking out if there are any in your area.

Beyond Yoga! Their clothing is buttery soft and the leggings are high waisted and have this tiny seam at the top so they don’t roll and STAY UP no matter what I’m doing! They are on the higher end price range ($95+ for bottoms and $50+ for tops) but so worth the money it isn’t even funny.  Their stuff goes on sale a lot.

hickoryhills :  I workout everyday/almost everyday so i am cheap bc I want to have 8 sets of tops/bottoms. Walmart sells these stretchy leggings that go just past the knee. They are awesome! I have like 10 pairs and they dont ride up or roll down. I also got some flowy tank tops there and thats what I have been working out in for over a year. They have held up well!

I really like Lole. Super high quality, stylish, functional, not flashy or revealing. And their online sales are great.

Fabletics is my go-to for bottoms. First of all, alot of their pants have pockets, which I LOVE! And I have no butt but a little bit of a gut, so I have a hard time keeping pants up, and the fabletics ones don’t move AT ALL! I don’t really care for their tops, but I do a lot of Under Armor (that I get at outlets – they have an online outlet store as well) and nike tops. I prefer ones that come up high (I’m busty, so I just feel better jumping around knowing my cleavage is covered!) and Nike has a better selection. Dick’s and Kohl’s are constantly running them on sale as well. For sports bras – Fabletics high impact ones and Victoria’s secret sport high impact ones are what I live in!

I’m a lululemon girl. Cute styles, colours, and the quality is better than most other brands I’ve tried. It’s pricey but I also wear it as casual/athleisure fashion so that’s how I justify it haha. 

I recently ordered a ton of stuff from gymshark and can honestly say I hate it. The material is just weird. It feels so delicate like it’s going to rip when you put it on. And some colours I ordered were not squat proof. Hell, I felt naked even standing upright. Never again.

Yoga Pants: Zella (I love the “live-in high-waist leggings” in black; they are soft without being flimsy, stretchy, moisture-wicking, don’t ride up or move around during class, not see-through,)

Running pants/capris: MGP (Mondetta Performance Group) or RBX or Athleta (I run regularly and like my pants to stay put, not roll down or cause saggy-crotch, have some compression, provide good support; I LOATHE flimsy pants)

Tank Tops: 90 Degrees by Reflex (inexpensive, basic tops in various colors. I have 2 black ones that are still going strong after 3+ years of 1x/week yoga) 

Tees/Long Sleeves: UA, MPG, and Sketchers (good basics, reliable quality, consistent fit)

Bras: No clue. I have major boobage and I run. And I have 3 compression type sports bras from Target that are a few years old that I alternate each week. I baby them since I don’t want to shop for new running bras.
