As a wellness editor, I like to say that I'm pretty well-versed in the activewear world. I have my favorite brands, I know what works for my own fitness routine, and I'll even give recs to my friends and readers. Looking for something comfortable for yoga class? I got you. Or maybe you need a piece that's extra supportive for those HIIT workouts? Well, I can steer you in the right direction. And you might even want something that you can wear to the studio or gym and then to brunch afterward. I have a lot of recs for that, too.

One place that I tell people not to sleep on when it comes to where to buy activewear is Amazon. The variety is pretty amazing. You can shop the retailer's in-house lines, like Amazon Essentials and Core 10, or brands you probably already know about like Under Armour. And of course, there are so many other brands and pieces to discover that have thousands of stellar reviews (TikTok-famous leggings, anyone?). Whatever your activewear needs are, you'll probably find it on Amazon.

Whether you're just starting to explore the retailer for activewear, or maybe you already are a pro shopper, here's a list of some of our favorite pieces from Amazon.


These leggings are thick and super compressive so you'll feel supported during your workout. The seamless design prevents any chafing while the breathable fabric is quick-drying.

If you're on TikTok, you've probably seen these leggings. They're supposed to make your booty look good during your workout. The fabric is breathable, moisture-wicking, and has four-way stretch.

These leggings are both soft and silky so they'll feel so good on. Plus, there are three pockets, so you've got enough storage for your phone, keys, credit card, and more.

With over 37,000 ratings and 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, these leggings come highly recommended. The fabric is buttery-soft and easy to move around in so you can focus on your workout instead of how comfortable your leggings are making you feel.

These medium-weight leggings have a 7/8 crop length, which is my favorite length because I think it helps me move better. The high-waist pair is squat-proof, too.

The cool thing about these leggings is that they were developed by yogis, so you know they're going to withstand any type of yoga class. They're ultra stretchy and are designed to maximize movement and prevent chafing.

If you prefer capri length leggings, check out these from Amazon Essentials. The fabric is lightweight, moisture-wicking, breathable, and stretchy—everything you need in a workout pant.

The mesh insets on these leggings not only look very stylish, but they're practical, too, because of breathability. There's also a hidden zip pocket and reflective details.

Sports Bras

If you need a sports bra with extra support, this one has a double layer. There are also mesh panels for some breathability so you won't overheat doing your workout.

I love longline bras because I can go without wearing a shirt and not have to worry about coverage. This light support top is great for studio and yoga classes.

This light support bra has a high neck for extra coverage. It's made of ultra-soft fabric and great for yoga and other low-impact classes.

For more comfort, this sports bra has wide gel-cushioned straps so they won't dig into your shoulders.

It looks like your average sports bra in the front, but it has this unique mesh design in the book that really sets it apart.

You really can't beat this deal—two sports bras under $25. The classic shape and style works for any workout, too.

Designed for high-impact workouts, this sports bra has a zip front so it's easy to put on and take off. 


This cropped tank is perfect for summer and any kind of extra sweaty workout. It has a mesh design, which means breathability. The back also has a peekaboo design for even more airiness. 

This classic tank from Under Armour dries quickly and has four-way stretch construction so you can move freely.

If you need a little bit more room, this one has a relaxed fit and flowy design.

With a mesh design all over, this tee will get you through any sweaty workout.


The bike short trend isn't going anywhere and we're not complaining. They're great for summer workouts, or serious sweat sessions. These feature a high-rise, wide waistband and big side pockets.

With side pockets and a hidden pocket, you've got a lot of storage options here. The shorts have four-way stretch and a gusset crotch for comfort and breathability.
