Affordable Align Tank Alternatives

Affordable Lululemon Align Tank Alternatives

Affordable Lululemon Align Tank Alternatives

Are you familiar with Lululemon‘s Align Tank? This popular item was released in November of 2019, and it has quickly developed a cult following.

Is it a bra? Is it a tank top? It’s both.

Is it a workout top, or a casual top? It can be both!

It’s a versatile item, and it’s very clear that Lulu fans have a lot of enthusiasm for this particular item.

The problem is that the Lululemon Align Tank is constantly sold out on the Lululemon website, or there’s only limited colors available. Many of us want to buy this top, but that’s simply not an option.

For this reason, I started to look for items that have a similar style and similar functionality. The Align tank is a unique item, so I was not expecting to find much. But surprisingly… I found some pretty good options, which I am eager to share!

Before I get into the tank tops, I will say that I was fortunate enough to try on the actual Align Tank. So I do have first-hand experience to draw from with this comparison. Yes, it’s awesome. Here’s a bit of info about the Lululemon Align tank:

Info about the Lululemon Align Tank

  • First released in late 2019
  • Made out of Nulu material, a soft, slightly brushed, stretchy, and comfortable fabric
  • Tight, cropped fit
  • Built-in bra with removable cup pads, rather than a shelf liner
  • Medium support for smaller cup sizes (reviews differ on the amount of support for larger cup sizes)
  • Middle layer: 89% Nylon, 11% Elastane, Body: 81% Nylon, 19% Lycra® elastane

Now let’s get onto my Amazon finds.. Trust me when I say these are ALSO awesome. I’ll start by sharing some of my finds, and then I’ll go into detail about some of my favorite options.

Which is the best Align Tank lookalike? 

So many of these are great alternatives. But I’m going to have to go with the CRZ Yoga Butterluxe tank for my top choice.

CRZ Yoga Butterluxe V-Neck Longline Bra – My top pick for Align Tank lookalike

CRZ Yoga Butterluxe V-Neck Longline Bra

In general, CRZ Yoga’s Butterluxe fabric is one of the best activewear lines for any brand. It is matte and very lightly brushed, making it very comfortable on the skin. The overall shape, as well as the small round logo on the back, make this one of the best lookalikes for the Align Tank.

As far as sizing goes, I like to get a medium in the CRZ, whereas I typically wear a 6 or 8 at Lululemon. It fits a little more snugly (aka more compression) than some of the other options on this list. 

  • Fabric: 81% Polyamide, 19% Lycra
  • 25 color options
  • Tight, cropped fit
  • Built-in bra with removable cup pads, rather than a shelf liner
  • Medium support

The Gym People Longline Sports Bra – Another Favorite Affordable Align Tank Alternatives

Next, let’s talk about Gym People, because I believe I’vd tested their Align Tank lookalike extensively. I liked this one so much, I bought it in three different colors.

This cropped tank from Gym People is similar to the Lululemon Align Tank. The shape and cuts are similar. The biggest difference is the fabric. The Lulu tank is made from soft, brushed Nulu fabric, whereas the Gym People tank has a slick feel rather than brushed. It’s closer to Nulux fabric or maybe even light Luxtreme than it is to Nulu.

In terms of sizing, I found that the Gym People top in medium was very close to a Lulu Align Tank in size 8. I would estimate that a Gym People size small would be equivalent to a Lulu Align in 4-6.

I highly recommend it for anyone struggling to get their hands on an actual Align Tank (or anyone who just wants the look for less).

  • Fabric: 80% Polyamide, 20% Spandex
  • Numerous solid color options and a few patterns
  • Tight, cropped fit
  • Built-in bra with removable cup pads, rather than a shelf liner
  • Medium support

Lavento Longline Sports Bra with Built-In Bra – Another Awesome, Affordable Align Tank Alternative

Ok, this one is also a favorite. Look at those gorgeous colors! The biggest difference between this one and the tank by the Gym People is the fabric. The fabric on this one is matte and more brushed, whereas the one by Gym People is more slick. The seams on the side are a bit different, but the fabric is closer to Nulu than the other options. It also comes in numerical sizes (4, 6, 8, etc.). The sizes are consistent with Lululemon’s sizes, in my experiences.

  • Fabric: 77% Nylon, 23% Spandex
  • Tight, cropped fit
  • Built-in bra with removable cup pads, rather than a shelf liner
  • Medium support
