You know the feeling when you want to get that workout in, you have it all planned, sitter for the kids, errands out of the way, you go to get dressed, and boom instant mood kill cause you’re not feeling your outfit. It has happened to me!
Personally, I am more motivated to get myself to a pure barre class if I feel good in what I am wearing. It brings on a whole new confidence level for me, and I am pumped to work out. It may sound silly but it’s so true. I’m telling you, investing in workout clothes that I feel good in changed my whole attitude about hitting the gym. Of course, beyond being super cute – comfort/durability is also a big factor in me determining my favorites. So to save you a bit of time, and a ton of trial and error with subpar gear… Here are all of my faves with a little about why I love them so much!
–Morgan Stewart Sport – LA Collective – This gear is my absolute favorite! The pants are high waisted they suck everything in, mama’s you feel me;) — super soft, stretchy, and so durable. I love all the matching sets and that you can mix/match them. I have several different sets, and they are worth every penny! It is so nice that you can get your work out in, but also have a cute outfit that you can wear throughout the day. I always wear them while traveling, just throw a cute hoodie or sweater on top when it’s chilly and you’re good to go.
Note: if you are a C cup or larger go with the M/L bra top.
–Align Pant 28″ | Women’s Pants | lululemon athletica These pants are more of an investment, but worth every penny. They hug you in all the right places without any pinching and the fabric is so SOFT! They are super comfortable. They are also the most flattering pants for the booty, hands down. I know after having the twins I am always looking for whatever help I can get in that department! I have them in both lengths, and wear them on repeat!
–Active Seamless Capri Leggings | Forever 21 These are SO affordable – I have them in several colors. At first, I was skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality considering the price point. If you check periodically they will restock with a lot of different color options. They are a good dupe for the align pants as well.
–High Rise Legging – Leopard | Onzie Essentials– A newer favorite! I love all the fun prints these come in. I get them in the high waisted style, they are super stretchy and maintain their quality in the wash. I think the leopard print is such a fun, chic look.
–Camo Collection – Strut This I have the green camo print and I am totally wearing them on repeat! I always get so many compliments. I think this camo print, unlike others with brighter colors, is just as versatile as a pair of classic black leggings. It’s like they match everything. Again, not just a fun look for working out. They also make a great airport outfit or for a day out with the kiddos. There is no reason you can’t feel put together, and comfortable.
Note: They also have the cutest outerwear. I am obsessed with this star hoodie.
Shopping Tip- Revolve clothing carries most of these brands, and they have the best return policy if your in between sizes and the shipping is fast!
Let’s be honest with ourselves, if you can pull off looking cute while working out it makes getting the workout in a LITTLE less painful, ha!
