The right workout clothing womens is key to getting the most out of your sweat session. That means the super-supportive sports bra that holds everything in place no matter how many jumping jacks you do, leggings or shorts that don’t ride up no matter how much you move and a top that can handle just about anything you throw at it (think: no chafing or riding up). And let’s not forget the gym shoes that are so comfortable you could wear them to sleep.
But with so many options out there, it’s not always easy to know what to look for and which brands to trust. So we asked a handful of Shape readers and experts to weigh in on the best workout clothing womens.

While some workout clothes are versatile enough for almost any type of exercise, other workout clothes are designed for a specific kind of movement or sport. This includes slim-fitting leggings that are great for high-impact activities, like running or lifting weights, and yoga pants with built-in bras that give you the option to go commando if that’s your thing.
One brand that knows what it’s doing when it comes to workout clothes womens is Fabletics. Its leggings are made with thick, soft and breathable fabric that’s both flattering and functional, and they come in a range of colors and styles. Plus, they wash up beautifully, even after frequent wear and a couple of runs to the gym.
