When I first took up running, I did not have the proper wardrobe for those miles I'd be tackling. I had no idea how a proper pair of running sneakers could support my ankles, and I definitely did not have a quick-drying long-sleeve tee to run in (which is how I caught a cold after my first fall run). I've learned from that experience, thankfully, and the first place I turned to for all my running gear was Amazon. Some research revealed that the e-commerce giant has a bevy of cute workout gear for all kinds of workouts, from high-waisted leggings (my favorite) and colorful tanks (that come in packs of three!) to supportive sports bras. Best of all, Amazon workout clothes are affordable. (To be fair, I love luxury athleisure and fitness gear, but I'm less afraid to go all out in my workouts in budget-friendly options.) Ahead, I rounded up some great workout pieces I found on Amazon based on over thousands of reviews, so you know they're truly vouched for by the community.
Sure, your college muscle tank days are over, but if you find yourself missing that loose fit, invest in these tank tops. An Amazon bestseller, these tanks are lightweight and made with sweat-wicking fabric.
This highly stretchable sports bra contains removable padding and is made with lightweight, breathable quick-dry fabric. You can wear it underneath your workout top or by itself.
You'll find yourself reaching for this black pair of leggings all the time, thanks to their breathability and moisture wicking abilities. The four-way stretch legging is designed to hold and move with you, whether you're running, dancing, or lounging at home.
Who doesn't love a matching workout set? This biker shorts and crop top combination comes in eight different colors.
No matter the weather, you like to wear shorts when working out. This pair of lightweight bottoms has a snug waistband and built-in mesh briefs, so you don't have to worry about those periodic gusts of wind. Two side pockets will keep your keys and phone safe.
This trio of workout tank tops comes in 11 different sets, so you won't have trouble finding colors that work for you. With over 11k reviews and counting, reviewers love the tanks because of the quality and fit, which many say run a little closer to the body.
If you're looking for affordable leggings to wear every day, you'll want to grab yourself a pair with pockets. (I personally find them useful for holding dog treats to train my puppy.) This one has deep pockets and comes in a variety of colors. One reviewer said, "These leggings are very good quality, great price, and comfortable. All that and they look great on as well."
If you like a little ventilation on your back as you work out, this top with a mesh back provides a cool flow of air as you run, lunge, jump, or lift. You can even knot the fabric in the back for a little detail. Based off the 6,000-plus reviews, fans think this shirt is comfortable, soft, and cute.
This long-sleeve tee has "cool DRI technology" so the fabric dries fast, and it also has odor protection just in case you're worried about smelling bad after a workout. Based off the 8,000-plus reviews, fans of the shirt love it for its quality and comfort. On your non-workout days, you can wear this as a base layer with your regular clothes.
These high-waisted, squat-proof leggings have tummy control and two side pockets, plus a hidden pocket so you can go hands-free for all your activities. The bottoms fit like a second skin, so don't be surprised if you want to wear these to bed. (Buy a second pair just in case!)
No workout is complete without a proper pair of moisture-wicking socks. The last thing you want in the middle of working out is to worry about how gross your socks will be afterwards.
This two-pack of sports bra has over 19,000 reviews (!!) and is described as "well made," "super comfy," and "great medium support." One reviewer said, "I always have a hard time finding sports bras that support well but these one are amazing. I'm a D cup and these bras keep everything in place really well, I can run and jump around with no problem."
With this crop top, you don't have to wear a sports bra because it's already padded (the pads are removable) for function and comfort. Just slip on your favorite yoga leggings and you're ready to work out...or watch Netflix.
Here's a cute workout set that will provide you with the fashion motivation you need to do that 30-minute Pilates class. There are tons of other color options available.
If you like your workout leggings to have some color (I definitely do), this wine hue will speak to your soul. The high-waisted leggings have a four-way stretch and offer both compression and support. Plus, they have a "gusset crotch," which will maximize movement and help with rubbing/chafing.
This sports bra has more than 11,900 reviews, so they're worth your time—especially since they come in an easy-to-wear pack of three different colors. This style is great for non-racerback lovers and is free from wires, clips, and hooks that can dig into your skin. Don't be surprised if they end up replacing your everyday bra.
When you're done with your workouts and want to cover up your sports bra or crop top, throw on this men's pullover. This black one comes in a pack of three, so you'll have one for nearly every day of the week.
When the weather gets cooler, you'll want to layer up with this nylon and spandex yoga jacket. It comes with two secret inner pockets to keep your wallet and phone safe, plus thumb holes to keep your hands warm.
Close to 13,500 people have rated these butt-lifting leggings—and according to the reviews, they do the job. Not only are they great for shaping behinds, but they're a staple for any fitness enthusiast or athleisure connoisseur.
There are enough crop tops in this set for a full week of workouts, with the racerback style being ideal for nearly any activity. These tanks are also perfect for layering with a running jacket or a quarterzip when cold out.
