High-waisted yoga pants that’ll make sure you can safely strut your stuff around the gym in the early morning hours without any skin making a surprise appearance.
Promising review: “I own about five pairs of leggings from this brand and I am FOREVER SOLD!!! If anyone were to ask me which leggings I love I would immediately mention these. I prefer these over my name-brand leggings any day. They are also squat-proof (for me at least). These fit so comfortably and are very flattering! I love my leggings high-waisted, they keeps my tummy in control without suffocating me. I have these in black, lavender gray, and magenta haze. The pricing for the quality of these leggings are amazing.” — Victoria
Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 34 styles)
Promising review: “The XS fits great! I’m 5’1 100lbs. I like boxy fits (especially for jackets since I layer a lot) so I was worried thinking I should get a S but the XS is still very roomy! The jacket length is perfect- doesn’t past the hip too much. The sleeve length is long but that’s fine. It’s not a hard fix to scrunch it up or fold it.” — Shells
Price: $39.25+ (available in sizes XS–XL, 1X–3X, and 10 colors)
A simple racerback top over 2,100 people have given five-star reviews — so you know you can’t go wrong by stocking up on every color.
Promising review: “I rely on reviews to decide on everything I buy so I thought I’d help a sister out! I just got these in the mail and tried them on and I’m so impressed! I’ve been eyeing these shirts for a while and finally decided to buy them, and I’m so glad I did. Based on the reviews, I was a little unsure about sizing, but I went with my normal small. In my opinion, they’re very true to size (I’m 5’1″, 122 lbs). The material is soft and not constricting. They are a tad long, but I have a pretty short torso. I’d size up for a looser fit and down if you’re looking for a tight fit. Overall I’m happy, and I think $20 for three shirts is a steal!” — Shelby Jordan
Price: $17.99 (for a three-pack; available in XS–2XL and 11 styles)
Or an affordable high-impact sports bra in case you’re not 100% sure if you’re really gonna ~commit~ to this new workout schedule (BUT YOU SHOULD, YOU GOT THIS!).
Promising review: “I run half marathons and have DDD boobs and a small frame. I was getting crazy burn marks from other sports bras with underwire. This is amazing. For me, it fits around the ribs (I got the 32E) and the bra band stays in place, doesn’t move, really holds my breasts down, and fits comfortably. Everyone that sees it thinks it’s such a cute design and the back is cute too. I have one in pink and black. I just bought the one in blue tonight. You also can’t beat this price. Highly recommend this sports bra! They’re all I wear to workout (I do HIIT, yoga, bootcamp type activities, and train/run half-marathons).” — jacquelyn Keeley
Get it from Amazon for
$19.99 (available in sizes 32A–40E and in five colors)
An eight-pack of no-show socks because one can never have too many pairs of workout socks when the dryer seems to eat at least three every time you do laundry.
Promising review: “I’ve never tried this brand of socks, but I’m so glad that I did. They’re super cushy, which makes them great for working out in. The little bit of extra fabric on the back of the heel is great because it does not slip into my sneaker like a lot of socks seem to do. With the sneakers that I wear, these are not ‘no-show’ socks but I don’t know why anyone would want it to be a secret that they’re wearing socks in the first place, so I don’t mind that these are visible.” — Smile Saurus
Price: $14.99+ (available in one size (shoe sizes 5–10) and nine styles)
A strappy sports bra that might seem like it would be just for show, but reviewers swear it’s more supportive than it looks.
Promising review: “This little workout bra is not only super cute on, but it actually supports a lot better than it’s advertised to do. I didn’t think I’d be able to wear this for a workout and bought it more for around the house. But once I got it, it became obvious I could wear it to the gym. I have run in this (and I’m a 34C), done burpees, box jumps, etc., and everything stays put with no pain. I’ve had a ton of compliments and two other people have ordered since. I tried one just to see how it fit and then immediately ordered two more. It’s replacing my Victoria’s Secret workout bras that I can no longer find.” — Jasmine
Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 17 styles).
A pair of mesh shorts that are so basic you literally can’t go wrong with them.
Promising review: “These are comfortable, breathable, and fantastic workout short! They’re durable quality and have a nice comfort waistband.” — Amazon Customer
Price: $6.59+ (available in sizes XS–2X and 11 colors)
A pair of compression pants that’ll help you ~squeeze~ in the best workout possible no matter what the temperature is outside.
Promising review: “Whew, these things are tight! I’m an average-sized guy, and I’m glad I didn’t get the medium. I bought the large. I wear running shorts over them. They keep me warm on runs in the low teens and single-digit temperatures without being too hot once I warm up. I’ve run many 10-20 miles runs wearing them, and after a few minutes, I forget I’m wearing pants/leggings!” — Amazon Customer
Price: $12.89+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 34 styles)
A tank top with a mesh panel to prove – once and for all – that you really are bringing ~sexy back~.
Promising review: “This is a great workout shirt! I usually wear a small and ordered a small, and it fits great! I wore it for weight lifting one night and cardio one morning, and it worked really well and is very comfy. I will be buying in more colors.” — Nikkie A
Price: $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 20 styles)
A pair of bootcut yoga pants to *widen* your selection of workout bottoms.
You can customize the inseam length to make sure they fit you just right!
Promising review: “I tried these out with low expectations, but they really surprised me. There is almost no difference between these pants and other name-brand ones, other than they are half the price. I bought my normal size and they fit perfectly. I didn’t measure the inseam, but I wear 35-36 inseam and they are perfect. I love them!” — Jean
Price: $27.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL, inseams 28″–37″ and four colors)
A tank top/bra combo you’ll love if you have a larger bust because it’ll keep you supported whether you’re lifting weights or running a marathon.
Promising review: “Omg, this is the BEST workout top EVER! I’m really busty (38DD) and have always struggled to find sports bras that really hold the girls down but won’t come undone (like the zip-up ones). I’m curvy and have love handles that I’m self-conscious about, so it’s hard to find a top that isn’t really loose but not terribly formfitting, and this top is it! It hugs you tight on top and is supportive enough that you feel secure, and is loose at the bottom, so it’s not tight around your midsection. Size up if you’re busty like me! I normally wear a L but decided to buy an XL due to others’ advice and it fits perfectly. I’m going to buy more, I love it so much! For reference, I’m 5’3″, 175 lbs.” — Brittany
Price: $22.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 15 styles)
A simple pair of athletic shorts with UPF 30+ protection so you can wear them in the summer to keep your skin protected from harmful rays.
Promising review: “These shorts are awesome! They are super lightweight and comfortable! Some reviews have complained that the pockets are big, but I love them! I have an iPhone 6s, and it’s large, I have to be careful when I buy workout pants and shorts because my phone doesn’t always fit in them. With these, I never have to worry about it sliding or falling out when I sit down. I’m buying a second pair in a different color, so I would absolutely recommend them to other buyers!” — Randy
Price: $19.98+ (available in sizes S–4X and S–4X tall and 14 colors)
A pair of high-waisted leggings I may already have in my cart because they’re cute, come in so many colors, and one can never (never!) have too many pairs of leggings.
Promising review: “These leggings are perfect. They’re not see-through at all, very stretchy without being straight spandex, and true to color. The seams are in comfortable places and the waistband is great. I buy a lot of leggings and this is now my go-to source.” — Devon Borokoff
Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 37 colors)
These are also our BuzzFeed Reviews pick for best inexpensive leggings!
A front-close sports bra that is so much easier to put on and take off than a typical sports bra, especially if you’re covered in sweat.
The bra machine-washable and is 95% cotton / 5% spandex.
Promising review: “These are the best sports bras EVER! They actually give you enough support and don’t give me uni-boob! Plus, they’re so much easier to get on as opposed to regular sports bras that are basically a workout to put on over your head and unroll to fit. I can’t wait to buy more soon!” — Stacey D Belt
Price: $7.82+ (available in sizes 34–48 and 13 styles)
Some compression socks designed to help promote blood circulation and oxygen flow, prevent cramping, swelling, and muscle recovery — they basically perform magic on your legs before, during, and after your workout.
Plus, they’re great for long flights as well as for people with chronic lymphedema.
Promising review: “I love these socks. They have helped so much with fatigue in my legs during my runs and HIIT workouts. They aren’t too tight to where they leave indentions in my feet. Plus, the toe seam isn’t one that irritates you. Just make sure you are putting them on the right feet. The bottoms say L or R. They go right below my knee but can be pulled slightly over the knee if needed.” — Kess_reviews
Price: $9.95+ (available in sizes S/M and L/XL and seven colors)
A running belt that’ll hold your necessities so you can focus on breaking your personal record instead of keeping track of whether you’ve lost your keys.
Promising review: “Love this belt! It is super comfortable and sturdy. I bought the belt to hold my iPhone 8 Plus and keys while I run. The iPhone 8 Plus is a tight squeeze but fits even in its OtterBox case. I love the hook to snap my keys on so they stay in place and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. I did not even find the need to flip the belt as my phone and keys felt secure and I wanted easier access to my phone. It fits snugly on my hip and the belt did not bounce around on my run even with my heavy phone inside. All in all super happy with this purchase. Worth every penny!” — Elise V. Ryding
Price: $22.99+ (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and nine colors)
Asics Gel Venture sneakers that have a built-in cushion to keep you feeling supported at all times. They also come in a ton of fun colors so you better believe your workout style will remain on point.
A few years ago I broke my foot and found I needed major support from my sneakers, not just for working out but for everyday use. I bought my first pair of Asics and never looked back. They are cushioned, comfortable, and exactly what you’d want in a sneaker — and over
3.7K Amazon customers agree!
Promising review: “I love these shoes! I am hard to please due to plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, and lots of screws in my ankle. Great arch support and really beautifully designed shoe. The photo doesn’t do them justice. They make me happy looking at them and wearing them. I only wear them to work out and they feel great! Great price too!!” — T. Discosola
Price: women’s sizes for $59.95+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 10 styles) or men’s sizes for $54.50+ (available in sizes 6–15 and in 16 styles)
Or Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoes that’ll leave your feet feeling ~heavenly~ after each mile. You can slip right into these without even wasting time fumbling with laces!
Promising review: “I absolutely LOVE these running shoes. They are extremely lightweight, feels like you are running on air yet with support. Super cute, look exactly as pictured and are true to size. I always wear a 6 and the 6 fit me perfectly. I would order these 100 times over, actually contemplating getting another pair in a different color just because these are so perfect. I’ve had them for over two months and they have not worn out at all. Wipes clean and doesn’t stain which is amazing!! I regularly run outside so I destroy my running shoes, these I’ve just taken a wet paper towel to and they are good as new! Sooo so happy with this purchase!” — Kat
Price: $31.42+ (available in women’s sizes 5–11 and 25 styles)
Joggers made with 12% spandex, so it won’t be a ~stretch~ to say that these will be your new favorites as soon as you get them.
Promising review: “These are my go-to joggers! They fit like a legging but are not as constricting because of the stretchy cottony material. These are perfect to workout in, use as pajamas, or lounge in.” — Russell
Price: $26.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in 15 styles)
A long-sleeved shirt with breathable fabric and UPF 50+, perfect for any outdoor workouts.
Reviewers say the shirt runs small and suggest ordering a size up.
Promising review: “We just got back from a vacation in Utah where we hiked nonstop for a week. I have never worn a long-sleeved shirt to hike in when it is warm, but this one was fantastic. Even though I packed other shirts, I kept washing this shirt in the sink, hanging it up to let it air-dry, and wearing it the next day. Unfortunately, all my pictures look like I only have one outfit, so I intend to order a couple more in different colors. It’s much better than having to use sunscreen all day long.” — callie2
Price: $21.95 (available in sizes XS-2X and in 11 colors)
A sports bra for bigger bust sizes that promises no bounce — and, based on more than 5,000 five-star reviews, delivers.
Promising review: “I have been searching for a sports bra that works. This one does what it says. I am a 36D and I work out with a personal trainer. I do HIIT workouts, strength training, and running. With this bra, there is very little bounce. It also is very breathable. It fits snug but I like that. It runs true to size. It even feels like it supports my back and shoulders. I am definitely buying more of these. I highly recommend this bra especially for women who are larger. Seriously the best support I have ever had in a sports bra.” — Jennifer Pelton
Price: $19.75+ (available in 34C-50J and in eight colors)
A racerback muscle tank so you can show off that cute sports bra you love.
Promising review: “I teach fitness classes multiple times per week. This is my go-to top! I have it in six colors. I love the cut on the arm opening up to the neck. It really flatters the shoulder muscles. Also, the arm opening is low enough to show off a cute sports bra while also being loose enough to maintain appropriateness while ‘working.’ They wash and dry really well too. It fits true to size.” — Ticket81
Price: $23.79+ (for a three pack; available in XS–XL and 10 styles)
A three-pack of compression tops made with moisture-wicking fabric to keep you dry and comfortable during even the most intense workout.
Promising review: “These are great shirts. I use them for jujitsu, and I don’t have to worry that they will ride up when I’m rolling. I also wear them as an overshirt for CrossFit. They are lightweight and soft. They definitely run small. I usually wear a medium and got a large, they are still a bit tight. 5’6″/155lbs/athletic build.” — Avid Shopper
Price: $32.79+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 12 styles)
Promising review: “I love my shorts so much that I purchased a second and third pair. They are great for my summer walking group. This particular short has pockets for cell phone, keys, or money. I also wear them for spin/circuit-training classes. All the styles I bought have the tummy-control panel and fit high on the waist…PERFECT!!! I totally recommend trying these. I looked in stores all over my area, and couldn’t find what I wanted, but I found them on Amazon.” — jme
Price: $9.98+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and in 54 styles and lengths)
Some leggings with side pockets to fit your phone and keys, so you can conveniently keep valuables safe and sound.
Promising review: “These are my new favorite workout pants! They are so comfortable, look and feel great and, have two side pockets. Those side pockets fit my iPhone comfortably and there is plenty of room left. It’s so practical. I’m 5’4″, 170 lbs, and usually wear between M-L. I like how the large fits better. I think they run a little big and the fabric is also kind of stretchy. I could probably go with one smaller size and still be fine. I like it how it is, but it is something to consider. I’m definitely going to order more!” — Jessica Anne
Price: $18.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 36 styles)
Nike Revolution 4 Running Shoes feature a mesh upper for optimal breathability and a soft foam midsole for lightweight cushioning. You can say “adios!” to your old pair of torn-up Nikes.
Promising review: “I’m an avid runner and after having given some other shoe brands a shot, I’m sticking with Nike. You can’t beat how soft and comfortable they are, the springiness of them where you actually ~feel~ faster, and the stylishness of them. Also bonus points because the check mark logo is so simple and minimalist. I hate shoes with big clunky logos on them. I was using another brand of running shoes until my recent purchase of these fabulous gray Nikes, and my feet and knees had started to hurt a little bit. I thought it was just me, that I was wearing myself out or something, but it was the poor quality and uneven footing of that other shoe. After a few runs with these Nikes, that pain and soreness from my feet and knees is gone. Thank you, Nike! I’ll be back here for my next pair of running shoes!” — JimS
Price: $44.99+ (available in men’s sizes 6–15, regular and wide widths, and 12 styles)
Promising review: “Finally a bra for big breasts! It’s nice, thick, and comfortable. I usually wear a regular bra under my sports bras, but this isn’t necessary with these as it provides good lift and support. It’s not the greatest for high impact workouts but works for the gym or yoga. I’m 5’5″, 155 lbs, wear a 36DDD cup. I ordered a large, and it fits good. A medium probably would’ve worked for the high impact, but the large fits great.” — Brenda Perez
Price: $9.88+ (available in sizes S–3XL and nine styles)
A simple moisture-wicking top that’ll keep you cool as a cucumber even through the most intense workouts.
Promising review: “I love these shirts! I’ve been looking for a good workout shirt that doesn’t cling around the middle. Not only did this one fit the bill, but it’s also about 2 inches longer than the Champion shirts that I bought for more money. They are incredibly comfortable to work out in but also just look like a regular non-athletic shirt. I don’t have any problem wearing them out of the gym and feeling like I have normal street clothes on. And this is much more comfortable than normal street clothes!! I highly recommend!” — Mom-of-Two
Price: $7.95+ (available in sizes XS–4XL and 15 colors)
A pair of training pants you’ll want to wear to the gym but also probably on the weekends, too (when you’re just relaxing). They’re great for both those purposes.
Promising review: “I love these pants. They are pretty breathy and open. I use them mostly for workouts, running, and sports. So they very convenient in that regard. I ended up ordering three more in different colors.”— Zishan Malik
Price: $26.07+ (available in sizes XS–4X, long, and in 37 styles)
A three-pack of compression tops that’ll ensure your shirt won’t fall down and cover your face while you’re doing a downward dog.
Promising review: “These are GREAT! They’re made of a super-soft material and are perfect for working out. They are by no means ‘compression’ material but are great for keeping you cool while exercising. I’m usually XS, but the small fits well. They’re not skintight but do cling nicely to my figure. I’m in love!” — Leah
Price: $20.45 (available in sizes XS–XL and seven styles).
