My Current Favorite Workout Clothes

Favorite workout clothes I wit & whimsy

Whenever I share my workouts on Instagram I got lots of questions about the best leggings, my favorite supportive sports bras and my other favorite workout essentials. As I’ve been working to get back into a good routine of moving my body of late, I’ve gone ahead and updated this post to be a comprehensive look at all my favorite workout clothes from tops to bottom to sports bras and shoes.

My Current Favorite Workout Clothes

I had plenty of workout clothes that are “just ok” or that haven’t stood the test of time. I decided to donate and sell those and instead whittle down my collection to all the things I loved wearing and reached for again and again. You can trust that all those included below are damn good and have been tried and tested by me personally.


Athleta Ultimate Train Tank

I prefer high neck workout tanks and this one fits my criteria for sweaty workouts. I wear size Medium.

Vuori Energy Tank

I love this tank so much! It is the softest fabric ever and it is so flattering on. You can see it on in this post. I have a size Medium. I have this in several colors- it is truly my go to and my most worn tank for working out.

Outdoor Voices Everyday Long Sleeve T-Shirt

I tend to really dislike long sleeve workout shirts that are tight on the arms so I rarely can find long sleeve shirts for workouts but this one was a home run. I’ll definitely be buying more. It also is great layered under puffer jackets for walks and you could even wear it at home as a basic layering tee under cardigans. I wear a size M. I first bought white and then bought black. This is a great long sleeve top.

Lululemon All Yours Tee

The perfect boyfriend workout tee. I knot mine and I love the oversized fit on this. Comfy and perfect for walks, running or errands. They also have a tank version if that’s more your style.

Outdoor Voices Everyday Shortsleeve

My favorite short-sleeve tee for low-sweat workouts. Perfectly cropped without being too cropped and a nice, soft cotton-jersey material. I wear a M.

Workout Outfit

Funnel Neck Pullover

My go-to for pre and post workouts. I love the fit and feel of this affordable sweatshirt that’s super stylish. I have a M – seen worn above.

Vuori Essential Halo Hoodie

If you have & love the Vuori joggers than you’ll love this hoodie made out of the same super-soft fabric. It’s so soft and cozy yet perfectly sporty and a great weight. I size up to a Large.

Vuori Alpine Sherpa Jacket

The perfect sporty fleece! I love that it is made from recycled performance sherpa fleece material and features cool contrast pockets that make it stand out. It has a full zip and is perfectly comfy and cozy for outdoor activities. 

Available in sizes XXS-XXL. I’m wearing a size Medium – TTS. 

Vuori Sundown Tee

The most perfect lightweight layer – I love the Sundown tee. It’s made of cotton pima slub – super soft to the touch and it’s got a very cool slouchy, cropped, relaxed fit to it making it perfect to throw on over a sports bra or workout tank. Because of its thinness this tee is especially great to travel with as an extra layer. 

Vuori Rib Studio Legging

Vuori Long Sleeve Halo Crew

This top is part sweatshirt, part tee and 100% comfy cozy. I love that it is made out of recycled materials and equal parts sporty and stylish. This tee is perfect as an extra layer for training, traveling, hiking, running or just lounging. I wear the M.

Vuori Long-Sleeve Mudra Fitted Tee

This is a slightly ribbed, very fitted tee. As such I way sized up and have it in an XL. It’s nice as a fitted layer to throw on over a regular sports bra. Then I’ll top a fleece over it often! 

Sports Bras:

Melissa Wood Health Review and Results

Sweaty Betty All Train Sports Bra

Hands down the most supportive sports bra I’ve ever tried. As someone with a large chest sports bras are always, always a challenge. Half the ones I try that are marketed as “high support” can’t take me jumping in place and I have to return. It’s truly frustrating.

Then I found this bra. I couldn’t believe the price when I saw it but I’ll tell you what – it’s worth every penny because I don’t worry about anything when I wear this sports bra. I really laughed when I saw some negative reviews of it being hard to put on – because in my mind it’s what makes this bra truly work and truly be supportive. You have to hoist your boobs up into it and then lock them in in the back so to speak. But then you’re good to go!

Run in it, jump in it – put it to the test. I have four of this bra now! It’s just worth it to me to have a sports bra I can really rely on for my high intensity workouts. I wear size 32DDD/F.

Reebok Pure Move Bra

This is a good, supportive sports bra. Not the most beautiful or stylish but it holds your boobs in place during workouts. I sadly don’t know what size it is that I own because it’s not listed on the reversible bra. Sorry!

Athleta Conscious Crop

I have the Medium D-DD and am wearing it in the above photo. Note it comes with cup inserts but I removed them. I never thought this top would work for me but it turns out it is great for yoga and core workouts that I’ve been doing. Also seen on me here.

Vuori Workout Clothes

Vuori Elevation Plyo Tank

Similar to the Athleta Conscious Crop but in a softer material, the Vuori Elevation Plyo Tank has a really flattering cut to it and the material is just like butter! I wear it in a size L as seen above with the matching Clean Elevation Legging (size M).

Lululemon Wunder Train Longline Bra

A flattering, functional sports bra for lower impact workouts I do. This is made from a highly breathable, fast drying fabric. It has good coverage, decent support and looks good on. 

Vuori Energy Tank

Athleta Ultimate Bra D, DD

This is a great basic, do-it-all bra. It’s perfectly supportive for high intensity workouts but also could be worn for anything less intense. I love the soft fabric and that it comes in sizes XXS through 3X. I wear a size M.

Lululemon Energy Bra

This is a good bra for yoga and any less-intense workouts you may be doing. I wear a size 8.

Lululemon Wunder Train Long Line Bra

With how much I was wearing the similar Energy Long Line bra, I decided to buy this new style, too. It’s similar in fit and purpose so it’s another option I reach for often doing my pilates and yoga workouts at home.

Nike Swoosh Bra

I own at least five of these bras. They are inexpensive and reliable and really, really hold up. Most of those that I own I’ve had for more than five years. Good enough for workouts involving jumping and really comfortable. I wear size Medium. Also available on Amazon if you prefer to shop there.

Vuori Rib Studio Legging


Athleta Elation 7/8 Tight

My very favorite leggings and a best discovery of 2020 for me. These are a great lounge legging but equally great for HIIT workouts or yoga or pilates. I love them. They keep everything really tucked in. I wear the Athleta Elation legging in a size Small. These tights are also extremely size inclusive running XXS-3X. I’ve already bought a second pair! (I did try the high waist version and didn’t like them as much as the original, btw!)

Vuori Workout Outfit

Vuori Clean Elevation Leggings

Another pair of super soft leggings that I adore. Designed with a pure, soft suede like feel and complete coverage, these leggings have an ultra high-rise, 7/8 length legging and are made from recycled materials that are moisture wicking.  They also have a hidden zipper pocket but sans side seams for superior movement. Great for your daily on the go. I’ve reached for them non-stop since getting them.

I wear the size M.

Lululemon Align 4″ Short

I plan to buy a second pair once restocked as I know they are going to be in heavy rotation during this summer. Perfect for yoga but I also wear on particularly hot days to do my BBG. I wear size 8.

Lululemon Fast and Free Tight

A flattering yet functional workout legging I wear often during BBG. they do show sweat so I’d steer clear of the colors and stick to black. I wear a Size 6.

Nike One Lux 7/8 Leggings

These are my thinest pair of leggings but I love them for just that. The fabric feels super luxe and the fabric excels for sweaty workouts. These look great on and are my go-to for sweatier workouts. I now have two pair. I wear a size M.

Vuori Fleece

Vuori Joggers

love these joggers that are equal parts sporty and lounge-y. Great for walks, great for wearing around the house and now have a cult following in my group of girlfriends. I wear a size Small. You will love these joggers – trust. See my full review here.

Lululemon Wunder Train High-Rise Tight 25″

Designed for training, these leggings kind of do-it-all. You can wear them for pilates or yoga or also for walks or sweaty workouts that are more high intensity like BBG. I wear a size 6.

Lululemon Align Legging

I own seven pairs of these now (four black, one burgundy, one navy) because I wear them that much. They are! Truly, I don’t think there’s a legging I love more. So soft, so wearable – no pulling or bunching or falling down. I wear these for yoga (I love that they hold up to my hot yoga classes!), I wear these for BBG, I wear these for walks outside, I wear these just around the house…I wear these a lot. And I wear a size 6.

Lululemon Align Jogger

I rejoiced when Lululemon released a jogger style of the beloved Align legging. They are so sporty and yet chic. I have worn these so much since they arrived at the start of shelter in place. I wear size 6. If you’re in between sizes I recommend sizing up.

Everlane Perform Leggings I wit & whimsy

Everlane Perform Legging

These are thin and functional and great for workouts. They are more of a sheen fabric than my beloved Lululemon ones so definitely less lounge-y and more for fitness. I am wearing them in the above photo. I have both a Medium and a Small and prefer the fit of the Small. The brand also just came out with a bike short version in the same material and I got them to workout in this summer.

My Favorite Leggings I wit & whimsy

Vuori Daily Legging

If you’re looking for an athleisure legging, look no further than the Vuroi Daily Legging. These feature a high waist, drawstring tie, an upgraded no-slip fit, 7/8 length and cuffed ankles making them equal parts sporty and stylish. These leggings are ultra compressive and supportive so I recommend sizing up. They’re great for yoga, running, hiking, traveling or running errands. I wear a size Large. The Vuori Daily Legging retails for $84 and is available in sizes XS-XL.

Vuori Rib Studio Legging

Vuori Rib Studio Leggings

I love these leggings! They have flexible, 4 way stretch and a ribbed high rise band so you can move freely and feel ok that everything will stay tucked in. They also have a hidden stash pocket and are quick drying thanks to moisture wicking technology.

Available in sizes XXS-XXL. I wear a size Medium in this legging (TTS).

Alo High Waist Airbrush Legging

I bought these for my walks in Australia when I went in 2019 and really loved them. I’ve recently rediscovered them and love them for their compression that sucks everything in. They definitely sculpt and smooth and look really good on thanks to the slight sheen they have. They come in loads of colors and I may get a bright, fun color next. I sized down to a Small. (The brand recommends sizing down). They are on the thicker side so they’re best in Fall & Winter.

Vuori Halo Performance Short

I live in these shorts in the summer. They are the short version of the Performance Joggers so they’re also super soft and feature no liner so they’re great for lounging or running errands.

Available in sizes XXS-XXL. I wear a size Medium – TTS but I would recommend sizing up if you prefer a bit more of a roomier fit.


APL Techloom Sneakers

Oh how I love these sneakers! So comfortable and yet stylish. I am so picky when it comes to my sneakers and when I booked my trip to Australia last year I decided to splurge on these after reading a lot of hype. My #1 go-tos for walks and hikes. And I love that you don’t have to wear socks with them! I sized down half a size to 6.5.

Allbirds Tree Runners

I love these super comfy shoes for walks. They are so lightweight and therefore great to pack as well.

Nike AirMax 270 Sneakers

These are like walking on clouds. So supportive, so comfy.

Nike Metcon 7 Training Shoes

My go-tos for BBG workouts and any strength training.
