    I get super hero leggings off amazon, and generally just wear a cami or tank top.

    I really like victoria's secret leggings and sports bras. My tanks are just a random collection of cotton tanks from different crossfit gyms and musclebox subscription.

    I like just going to TJ maxx and getting whatever brands they have there. My favorite pair of leggings is from there by some brand that I've never heard of.

    I’m a pear shape and I love old navy high waisted compression capris. They are squat proof, don’t show every dimple and bump, never ever roll or move, and aren’t crazy expensive.

    Sports bras are Under Armour compression or Victoria secret sport.

    Tops, pretty much whatever I find that is reasonably priced and matches my style (long sleeves for lifting, tanks for spin)

    Depends on what type of exercise you're doing. Are you just looking for general workout wear? Yoga clothes? Running clothes?

    If you're sweating a lot, I would recommend moisture wicking fabrics. If you are prone to blisters, then you should also try moisture wicking socks--I like Balega, but there are many brands. If neither of these things apply to you, then I would just wear whatever is comfortable and cheap.

    If you need sports bras in cup size D or larger, I am a huge (no pun intended) fan of Panache. I've worn their sports bras for running at every size from 40DDD to 32D, for runs up to a half marathon. They're pricey but well worth it. Don't skimp on sports bras if you're a busty person.

    If you are running, get fitted for shoes at a running store. This is something you should neither skimp on nor rely on others for recommendations.

    My running tights are all Under Armour; my workout shirts are whatever I get from races.

    Gym shark is good, also Lulu Lemon but they're $$$$.

    A lot of my stuff is Nike that I get on sale.

    I mostly wear Old Navy. I really like their running shorts and muscle tanks. I also have a couple Tesla capris from Amazon. My running shoes are Mizuno. I lift in my retired running shoes. For sport bras, I have fruit of the loom, jockey, and Old Navy. I am not busty at all though.

    I like Danskin Now pants. I have also gotten pants and shorts from the thrift store.
    I just wear ordinary tees or tanks.

    The only thing I spend a lot of money on are my running shoes and socks: improper fitting shoes can causea lot of problems, running in less than awesome socks and I blister my feet.

    Everything else is what ever I feel like and is clean. I do recommend actual running/workout tights and not regular leggings as many leggings become rather see through when you bend over. I've seen way too many pair of underwear show through leggings at the gym.

    I normally wear running tights and an old t-shirt when I run outdoors and it's cold. Or, soccar shorts and an old tank/t-shirt when I work out indoors. Nothing matches, it's not cute, but by the end of my workout end up covered in sweat and looking all ragged anyways.

    Wear what you are most comfortable wearing.

    Would probably need more info:
    • Which country?
    • What are you doing at the gym?
    • What sort of size/shape are you?

    Under Armour is my favorite for running shorts (7" / long) and sports bras (nice flat lower band/seam).

    Old Navy, C9 (Target) and Fabletics are my stand-bys. Occasional RBX and a brand I can't recall from Amazon - but the sizing and quality are very inconsistent so it's a desperation buy normally.

    My favorite fitness youtubers just announced they are launching their own line of workout clothes. I am beyond thrilled, I haven't bought any new stuff and 40 pounds later my old stuff is falling off me. I resisted buying new clothes and now I am so glad. I am going to rock that Workout Complete, rock it so hard, haha!

    I recently bought off amazon a pair of capris workout leggings with pockets, high waisted brand ododos. They were about $17 and well worth the price. They don’t show that your are sweaty, which is very important to me. I also bought the ankle length but the sizing and the feel were not the same. They ran a tad smaller (can still wear them though) the smoothness of the capris are awesome. Runs true to size imo.
