I’m pretty picky when it comes to my workout clothes, it has to fit nicely, and feel good! All these recommendations past this test! I used to (probably still would be if kids weren’t so expensive) be obsessed with buying workout clothes, we were frequent flyers at Dicks Sporting Goods, back when we lived in Kansas. There also wasn’t anything better to do lol. I now buy online, and cross my fingers they fit right… anyone else hate online returns?
I’m also LIVING in these clothes right now, because what’s the point of putting jeans on..? right? I obviously think I need more, because laundry has been on the back burner.
Anyway, let’s get started. This may not be super organized, but I’ll get my point across, promise.
Favorite “running” shorts would have to be these two Under Armour brand. I’m not a huge fan of ones with built in underwear, but the grey ones pass the test because they are a little loose fitting and flowy. I LOVE the pink ones because there are no built in underwear, and the elastic band is super comfortable. 10/10 recommend both!
Next up, my favorite workout leggings and spandex. Two brands here, Calia by Carrie Underwood, and 1st Phorm. I don’t know about you, but I basically live in workout leggings.
The black ones are Calia, and I always get compliments on these ones when I wear them. They have mesh sides, so they show off some leg, as well as a side pocket.
The maroon ones are 1stPhorm. They are high waisted, thick waistband, holds it all in, and has a side pocket. I hate when my leggings don’t have side pockets, I usually don’t have enough hands for all the things I need to carry, so pockets are a must.
My favorite spandex shorts are also 1stPhorm, they hold in the booty and the belly, do I need to say more? They are comfy cozy all around! They do ride up a little, but not enough for me to hate them!
Next are my fave tank tops. I love working out in tank tops the most vs. t shirts or long sleeves.
The gray one with writing is an Under Armor tank top, I really like this one because it makes me (in my opinion) look more toned and muscular lol I’m pretty sure it’s the way it lays so nicely, making my bust area look smaller.
The light grey/white is Calia…are you sensing a theme with the brands here?? Whoops. This one is a little more fitted, and a thicker material. I wouldn’t say its tight, but its shaped so it’s very flattering.
Last but not least, for tank tops is my 1stPhorm razor back tank, it’s loose fitting, so I can tie a little knot at the end and wear it with my high waisted leggings, or half tuck it and throw on a jean jacket to leave the house in. I usually try to wear this one with a cute crisscross sports bra, so it adds a little spice to it. Don’t worry, I’ll show you a couple of those too!
Sports bras. A must for my busty girls. Lemme tell you, it has been a JOURNEY trying to find some I really really love. My ultimate fave isn’t pictured, because I don’t think it exists anymore, its literally over 10 years old, so I obvi can’t see what brand it is anymore, it was from Target though lol
The black bra and grey and pink are both Calia, they do come with pads in them, but I take them out, because I also wear a real bra underneath, some of you don’t have to worry about that, I envy you. I love how fun these ones are, with the different designs in the back, I don’t get that often in ones that ACTUALLY fit, and SUPPORT. 10/10 suggest!
The other one is a nursing bra from Cadenshae, but I only recommend, because it’s a nursing bra, and I need that right now. It’s not super supportive, but they do carry another nursing bra that is very supportive, and I’ll try to link that one. Overall, it is a very well made brand.
Next are my fave cropped workout shirts, and drum roll they are 1stPhorm. First one is a maroon VERY cropped sweatshirt. Think sweatshirt material, pretty short, but perfect for the spring time breeze, and I only wear high wasted leggings, so it’s a perfect length. I definitely suggest wearing a sports bra with this one.
Next is my 1stPhorm, light weight, army green long sleeve. This one is a little bit longer then the sweat shirt, and easy to wear all year round. I’ll probably pair it with some cute high waisted shorts during the summer, for a casual outfit out.
Lastly, SHOES. These shoes are my absolute favorite, and I do not believe they are made anymore, at least not exactly like this. Nike Zooms. I am not exactly sure what it is about these EXACT ones, but they are so good! They have never hurt my feet, and I always feel supported. I have found similar, and their new style, but they just don’t live up to the OGs. So if you find some 7.5s or 8s, think about me <3
And that’s all she wrote! I could probably dig out a lot more of my faves, but ya know…laundry day! Yuck! Going to try and come back to add a try on video!
I think I will come back with Markus’ faves, cause I know a lot of my dudes would love some new suggestions! Let me know if you’d be interested in that! Also, let me know your favorites in the comments, I love trying new brands out too!
Stay Confident <3
Curious if you have tried any of my current work out faves…
My leggings are from LuLaRoe Rise and Fabletics (also want to try some from Zyia but they are pricey so I keep holding off)
My sports bras are from Zyia and Fabletics (very large chested, most brands aren’t large enough or don’t cover enough)
Teala Duhamel says
I actually haven’t tried any of those! I used to sell LLR, and had their old workout line, but didn’t love it!!
I’ve heard awesome things about Ziya, and do plan on trying those out!!
Also heard awesome things about fabletics!!
Check our the Calia brand for sports bras! I was looking at their website! Some may work! I haven’t bought enough any from them in awhile though!
Andrea Leppert says
I will try these brands! I have a few Ziya but they are $$$$.
