A supportive sports bra, gym wear for ladies that feel like a second skin and a breathable top to layer over them are key for a sweat-inducing workout. And if those pieces can double as everyday wear (aka running errands post-sweat session), well, all the better. The good news is, plenty of brands have got you covered.
Lululemon, which was founded in 1998 and is known for its incredibly soft and stretchy fabrics, has a legging to suit every style and workout. Its signature Align Tank and Yoga Crop Pant are bestsellers, while the brand’s high-waisted compression leggings have a 4.5-star rating from reviewers for hitting exactly where they need to on the body and being v comfortable.

Then there’s Adidas, which is lauded for its focus on sustainability: The iconic three stripes is committed to using only sustainable materials (half of its collections are made with recycled plastic waste and certified materials from Parley for the Oceans) and has even partnered with Stella McCartney to design vegan athletic footwear. Its popular EQT line has everything you need to train in the gym, from running shoes to workout clothes, and is always on sale.
Australia-based P.E Nation is another must-try activewear label. Its coveted pieces are designed to work out and look good in your everyday life, too, with nods to ’90s street style. The brand’s best-selling cropped leggings are adored for their smoothing effect and come in colors like mint, blush and espresso. Its popular Space Dye fabric is marble-looking, cozy and flexible enough for a sweaty workout or a lounge sesh on the sofa.
