The 5 Best Activewear Brands – the Absolute Best Leggings, Sports Bras, Active and Lounge Wear

With so many activewear brands out there right now, who really makes the best activewear? As you guys know, I’m obsessed with cute, chic exercise wear, and comfy active clothes are what I rely whether I’m flying on red-eyes and looking for comfortable, cute travel outfits, or I’m getting my resort workout in, doing a yoga class, or working from home in loungewear. But it can be overwhelming to navigate the differences in quality and fits between activewear brands and decide which activewear brand is best for you, which is where I come in.

I’ve tried and tested SO many activewear brands by now that I felt it was time to tell you all what I really think. So here are my five favorite activewear brands – a little about them, their brand, their fits, and my favorite products from them. 

Alo Yoga 

Best activewear brand for: High quality leggings, super soft fabrics, and cute matchy activewear outfits

If Alo were a destination they’d be: Beverly Hills or Miami

The best Alo Yoga products I own:

I really recommend anything and everything in their Alosoft fabric – it’s the best. I highly recommend their high-waisted leggings – it’s the best fit in a legging I’ve ever had – I’d recommend sizing down. 

I’m obsessed with these leggings – as you guys know – and this color is the BEST.

Love this comfy cropped sweatshirt. 

This is the SOFTEST hoodie – I wear it as a cute travel hoodie to keep me comfy and warm on planes all the time. 

I’ve also been wearing this knot bra a TON lately – I don’t tie it quite this tight so it covers more stomach. Love it. 


Best activewear brand for: quality and shorts!!

If Lululemon were a destination, they’d be: Hawaii. Everyone loves Hawaii, and everyone loves Lulu. 

They’re all I wear for shorts (I have 3 pairs of the same white ones, pictured below, LOL), and same for men’s shorts – my fiance swears by Lululemon shorts, too, and has about 5 pairs. 

Outdoor Voices

Best activewear brand for: Hiking, support, and structured fits

If Outdoor Voices were a destination they’d be: Banff

They call themselves ‘technical apparel for recreation’ and I think that very much ‘fits’ their products. I wear my outdoor voices set for hiking and more outdoorsy recreation. It’s a strong fabric, and the fit is super flattering. It makes you want to climb a mountain – I feel like a boss when I put on my Outdoor Voices set. 

The best Outdoor Voices products I own:

I LOVE the fit of these crop top sports bras – highly recommend. 

Beyond Yoga 

Best activewear brand for: Cozy comfy basics in super-soft fabrics

If Beyond Yoga were a destination it’d be: Charleston, with its feel-good fabrics and sweet designs, this comfy, cozy brand reminds me of the South. 

YALL – I LOVE Beyond Yoga. Their fabrics are SO soft, which is super important to me when it comes to having comfy and cute loungewear to WFH or relax around the house in.

The best Beyond Yoga products I own:

Carbon 38

Best activewear brand for: show-stopping style

If Carbon 38 were a travel destination, it’d be NYC. High fashion and non-stop.
