The Top 4 Women’s Athletic Brands to Shop Right Now

The past decade has seen athletic clothing take on a whole new purpose: it’s not just for sweating, it’s for looking cute, too!

Looking to replenish your athleisure collection, or need to replace that old sports bra you’ve had for years? Check out today’s top women’s athletic clothing brands to see what deals you can score right now.

Under Armour

Under Armour has been producing comfortable workout apparel that’s built to last since 1996. Right now, you can shop online for some pretty good middle-of-the-road deals. Under Armour boasts truly quality threads at an affordable price.

For example, rock the UA Meridian leggings right now for just $70, or the Meridian bike shorts for a steal of $60.

Under Armour also offers a plus-size clothing line! The plus-size Women’s Armour Mid Crossback Sports Bra is selling for only $35 right now. Or, try the super comfortable UA Infinity High Sports Bra for $60.


GAP added Athleta to its retail empire in 2009. Sonia Syngal became the president and chief executive officer of GAP in March of this year – so, support Athleta, and you’re supporting one of the newest female Fortune 500 CEOs!

Athleta is currently celebrating their semi-annual 60% off sale, so it’s a great time to buy for women and girls alike. Get the Chelsea Utility Jogger for $44.99 (was $89), or try the insanely cute Attitude Pant for $54.99 (was $89).


The Kate Hudson-founded Fabletics is perfect for the online shopper and the lover of fast fashion. It’s a subscription retailer, and they offer a pretty amazing deal just for signing up.

When you become a VIP member at Fabletics (which basically just means you’re subscribed to the monthly service), you’ll get two pairs of leggings for just $24 – no strings attached. You can cancel any time.


Lululemon may be known for being a little expensive, but their stuff is so high quality, it’s worth it. You’re not going to see your Fabletics pants last as long as your Lulus. We’re not knocking Fabletics – just know that Lululemon is going to feel a little pricey, but it’s honestly worth it if you want a staple piece that will last through thousands of workouts.

Try the extremely popular Wunder Train High-Rise Tight leggings for $98, or the versatile Day to Night dress that’s going for $128.

Remember, this is also the time when winter clothes will be heavily marked down. Save big on cold-weather styles by buying now. Consider Lululemon’s Pack It Down Vest that went from $148 to $59. That’s a deal you will not find from September to February!
