I consider myself to be a relatively passive person, but I will fight tooth and nail with anyone who says leggings aren’t pants. I’m a work-from-home blogger who does crafts and chases around puppies all day– I literally live in leggings, and yes, they’re pants. I’m also a girl on a budget who, as much as she’d like to, can’t afford to wear head-to-toe Lululemon. Fortunately, that’s where Amazon comes in. Amazon Fashion is an affordable hunting ground for hidden athleisure gems– like some of the best leggings, tank tops, and sports bras you’ll ever find. If you want comfortable loungewear without the crazy price tag, keep reading! I’m rounding up all my top 12 favorite Amazon activewear purchases in today’s post!
First and foremost, these leggings have over a 4.5-star rating with more than 2,000 reviews. They’re also under $20, available in over a dozen colors, and the comfiest pair of leggings I own. I purchased pairs in Black and Space Dye Camo White, and I wear them almost every day. They’re so soft and stretchy– I almost forget I’m wearing pants (because yes, leggings are pants). Anyways, of all the pairs I’ve found, these are, in my opinion, the best leggings on Amazon.
“icyzone” may not be the most reputable company name, but their bras and tanks are some of the absolute best tops to wear with leggings. If you love a relaxed and lightweight workout top, this style has over a 4.5-star rating and more than 1,200 reviews. I purchased 2 3-packs in Black/Gray/Lavender and Army/Charcoal Pink– both for under $25. As soon as the weather warms back up, I’ll be ordering more. Love these tops!
Although these are slightly more expensive than the previously mentioned Oalka leggings, 90 Degree by Reflex “Tummy Control” leggings have over a 4.5-star rating with more than 4,000 reviews. I own 2 neutral pairs (Black and Heather Charcoal), both of which slim my figure substantially. Seriously, I feel so confident (and comfy) in these high waisted leggings. This style is also available in a rainbow of fun bright colors, like Magenta Haze and Lapis Blue, and you can purchase in 1, 2, or 3-packs.
It’s rare that bras can garner universally positive reviews, but this one did. It’s got over a 4.5-star rating with more than 500 reviews. And not only is this strappy sports bra super cute, it’s comfortable, wire-free, and features removable padding for extra comfort. I’m not very busty, so I can’t speak much to its support, but I can confirm that it’s pretty dang cute in person, and it looks and feels just like a higher-end Athleta or Lululemon bra.
I found this quilted puffer vest on Amazon for under $25, and even though it has just under 150 positive reviews, I gave it a shot. I now own 3– one in black, ivory, and blue. It’s not super heavy, but it’s a perfect layering piece in the colder months.
These “tummy control” capri leggings from 90 Degree by Reflex have over 5,000 reviews and a 4-star rating. They’re flattering, super comfy, and under $20 for a single pair. There are complaints that these don’t pass the “bend over” test (ie they’re see-through), but that’s not the case with either of my 2 pairs.
Daily Ritual wasn’t messing around when they put “super soft” in the product title. This hooded Daily Ritual pullover may be the softest top I own, and I wear it every chance I get– in fact, I’m wearing it in the cover photo along with this vest, these leggings, and this hat. It’s long enough to qualify as a tunic and light enough to function as a cozy layer.
These tops are similar to the ones I mentioned early, except this style features a crew neckline and stretchy fabric. Just like their counterparts, these racerback tank tops have over a 4.5-star rating with more than 2,000 reviews. I ordered a Black/Granite/Blue 3-pack in a medium to make the fit more loose and relaxed, and they’re perfect. For $20, you can’t find a better trio workout tops. Highly recommend!
In case you didn’t already know, Amazon is officially the best place to buy leggings. The Core 10 price point is much higher than Oalka and 90 Degree by Reflex, but these “build your own” leggings are worth their $59 price tag. The nylon/spandex material is thick, sweat wicking, and 100% opaque. I love that they have pockets, and I love that you can customize the waist style and inseam length. This particular pair is also by far the most trendy of all the leggings on this list– with side panel pockets, mesh panels behind the knees, reflective accents, and ankle zippers.
Coming from a native Floridian, it gets surprisingly hot during Missouri’s summer season. It’s too hot to wear leggings most days, so I bought these pink stretch running shorts to keep cool on our hikes, and I love them. They’re well made, fit perfectly, and aren’t too long or too short in length. Plus, they’re just under $20 and available in hot pink, gray, and black.
I bought this after talking myself out of buying a $50 Lululemon bra online, and I was admittedly skeptical that the price was too good to be true. Somehow, it wasn’t. If you’re looking for a cotton sports bra that’s practically made for looking quite while running errands or doing yoga, this Queenie Ke cotton bra is a dream come true. It fits true to size and is shockingly comfortable, too!
I needed a disposable hat for tennis, so I ordered this super cheap baseball cap on a whim. I’ve ordered 4 more colors since. This style is adjustable, available in over 2 dozen colors, and super soft. Plus, it’s got over a 4.5-star rating with almost 2,000 reviews. Although the sizing is said to be adult, it runs on the smaller end, meaning this hat probably isn’t ideal for kids or larger men.
