Don’t let money keep you from looking your best. When I say cheap women’s workout clothes, I mean affordable workout fashions. Boost your motivation to get in shape by using the power of a flattering and stylish activewear outfit.
Since most of us chose to stay in shape from our home gyms or personal workout spaces last year, activewear fashions and styles took a pause for the past 12 months.
Athleisure and stretchy leggings were the mainstay last year and the trend will continue through 2021 as gyms are just starting to open up.
As the number of women that continue to work from home holds steady, the trend is toward comfort wear continues to grow.
Designers are now styling activewear designs for women for all-day wear. The advent of a Zoom meeting world has allowed fashion to go for more function and comfort, than on fashion alone.
Today, the selection of performance leggings has never been greater, which in turn has created a downward pressure on prices, which is nice. Fresh activewear styles inspired by a more dressed-down society, are leading the comfort wear explosion.
Check out our selection of workout clothes that are designed with performance, style, and comfort in mind.

The Best Fabrics For Workout Clothes
- Cotton is best for low-intensity workouts. Rayon and spandex are preferred for high-intensity workouts
- Wicking fabrics are best to get rid of sweat. They pull moisture away from the skin to add in cooling and quick-drying
- Look for “squat proof” leggings for intensive workout classes
- Purchase your workout clothes based on the type of exercise you plan to do.
- Great fit means everything. Buy workout clothes that fit your body type.
Invest in decent sets of workout clothing, such as quality athletic shirts, shorts, pants, and sports bras. Avoid wearing restrictive clothing for the gym! …Denim is a definite “no-no”! Purchase gym shoes intended for a workout you plan to do, such as gym shoes, running shoes, cross trainers or basketball shoes. Save your work boots for the construction site!
Non-sports bras or regular bras are not designed to offer support during intense workouts. With regular bras, even low-impact exercises such as light running or moderate stretching could lead to pain and discomfort. You may also experience tension or pain in your shoulder if you use regular bras during the workout.
