I love both Title Nine and Prana brands and I buy mine on Ebay slightly used at a fraction of the price of new.  In fact, I buy most of my clothes slightly used iff ebay and save a fortune.  I know which brands I love and my sizes, which makes it great!  I get almost all my daughters clothes that way also.

The people who designed lululempn’s ‘luon’ fabric were poached by Nordstrom to create their in-house line, Zella. Their leggings are great quality for half the price, and you can usually find them at Nordstrom rack! Z by Zella is their even more affordable line, but I find they don’t have the leggings that suck you in. The rack also carries Fabletics, which are wonderful tips and bottoms around $15-20 and you don’t have to sign up for their subscription! 

For bras and tops, Old Navy’s active line can’t be beat for $5-10. I have size D tatas, and haven’t had issues with their basic sports bras.

well in sports clothes there are a few different types of people. I pwroa ally don’t want to spend a fortune on gym clothes so I really like my H&M sportswear. Lidl also has good ones when they have it and they practically cost nothing. 

My best friend on the other hand would never ever go to public place with cheap sports clothing. I sometimes think she o my works put so she can buy expensive sports wear. she is very into Nike.

Target just dropped Joy Lab and I LOVE it! I also second Zella, I work from home so basically spend all day in leggings. Wearing Zella right now.  😀

Zella: their sizing runs just a bit on the large side but the quality is great. Huge selection of items. 

Zobha: also a good, mid-range quality brand. For some reason, these pants/leggings always seem to do wonders for my butt. wink

MPG: I’ve had their Simha capris for 5+ years and they still look, fit, and feel amazing; high quality fabrics, true to size, and they are a steal if you can find them on sale. Also, the pants suck you in and keep everything in place. Best workout leggings I own (and I have 30+ pairs from 8+ brands). Marshalls or TJMaxx usually carry them at a good price ($20-$30).

Under Armour: I love their tops! Not so much the pants/shorts since they all seem to fit awkwardly.

90 (degrees) by Reflex: The pants are a bit too thin for me, but their tops are inexpensive and quite nice. I have 2 identical basic black tanks from them and both are still going strong after 3+years of weekly use. Huge selection of styles, colors, etc.

sugarcloud :  Under Armour for shorts and heat gear tanks.  I have several jackets and they’re okay, but not my fave.

Athleta is my fave.  They run great sales if you watch closely and it’s really high quality with some really soft pieces.

Gap Outlets have crazy cheap prices if you’re mostly using the clothing for lounging.  For performance pieces (I’m a runner) see the other two brands.

Try http://www.steepandcheap.com I mostly wear under armour and north face but I refuse to pay full price. I used to wear luluemon but the quality has gone way down in the last 10-15 years.

Old Navy and Victoria’s Secret are my go-to. VS runs a “buy a sports bra, get the pant for free” or similar sale once or twice a year, and it’s the best.

I have been hearing a LOT about Old Navy’s line lately!! Apparently they have near-Lulu-level gym clothes for their typical Old Navy pricing.

Also, if you work out in leggings, Gymshark’s are VERY cute and very affordable. I overheat in leggings at the gym, but I bought some anyway, at that price, to wear as athleisure.

Old Navy. They have tons of online sales and their workout clothes are good quality. I’ve also found good stuff at Ross and TJMaxx, they have lots of main brands like Nike and Reebok.

I’m not a brand loyalist. I just but whatever looks good quality from places like Nordstrom Rack and Marshalls. $20 Nike leggings? Steal!
