This Fitness Influencer’s Favorite Activewear Brands for Every Woman

Personal Growth

I’ve been a fitness enthusiast for four years now, and I’ve tried my fair share of athleisure. Trust me, I have certain non-negotiables when it comes to activewear—and I’m sure you’ll agree

1. No see-through (or sweaty crotch marks) during my workout.
2. No rolling down or slippage on my leggings when I do squats.
3. And I must be comfortable!

Before rounding up some of my favorite activewear lines, I have to say: sometimes, trying on new clothes can give people anxiety. You may have to size up or down depending on the fit. When you try on any of these brands, pay attention to what the fit feels like and remember the following questions: How do the clothes make you feel? Is the fabric comfortable? Do you feel supported in all of the right areas? 

What’s not important is the size on the label. Sizes vary from brand-to-brand, and what’s printed on a little tag should not dictate how you feel. Your worth is not measured by a number; it is measured by the quality of person that you are: confident, kind, and resilient!

Now that we got the size stigma out of the way, here are a few of my favorite brands:

Sweaty Betty: If you are looking for compression, the Zero Gravity leggings are the way to go. They hold all of you in, and when you get down low for those squats, you don’t have to worry that your leggings will ride down at all. 

 

beyond yoga activewear

 

Beyond Yoga: This is one of my favorite athleisure brands because their designs are so wonderfully thought out. Determined to spread a body-positive message, Beyond Yoga regularly features women of all shapes and sizes in their marketing—and that matters. The fabric is responsibly sourced and oh-so-soft, making you feel like you’re wearing actual clouds! 

Avocado: I recently tried their leggings, and while there’s not too much compression, Avocado is all about comfort! The cut makes their leggings very flattering to the backside as well (if you know what I mean). Hello, peach emoji!

 

Under Armour body positive activewear

 

Under Armour: As a more traditional athletic brand, Under Armour is sometimes overlooked, but it’s reasonably priced, and some of my favorite sports bras, like the UA Rush, are from this brand.

Zella by Nordstrom: Zella is a Nordstrom-made activewear line that is reasonably priced, and their designs feel on-trend yet practical. Many of the pieces I’ve bought and that are in-store feature pockets, making the style super convenient—especially if I am going on a hike or being active outdoors and don’t have access to a locker to store my belongings.

While I love tons of brands, I only have a few pieces because I get it—the cost of activewear can really add up. Invest in a few well made classic and comfortable staples so you can keep the clutter in your closet to a minimum, and what you have will withstand all of those tough workouts in the future!
