Lululemon Alternatives: The Ultimate Collection of Activewear Pieces Similar to Lululemon

Lululemon alternatives: A collection of quality activewear pieces that won’t break the bank

Updated Dec 2022 with new favorites and more brands

You love activewear as much as I do, huh? Looking to shop the high-end activewear look for less? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

I love to shop brands like Lululemon, Athleta, and Alo Yoga. They make high-performance, quality pieces with stylish cuts. I am a big fan.

But I also love to find great deals on affordable activewear.

While some people swear by the affordable activewear at Target or Old Navy, I have personally found my favorite brands and pieces on Amazon. There are so many great brands on Amazon, offering affordable activewear pieces that are also high quality. I truly believe Amazon is the best place to buy affordable activewear! Some of my favorite brands are Colorfulkoala, Lavento, The Gym People, Yogalicious, and CRZ Yoga.

Best of all, many of the styles are similar to the higher-end brands that I love (like Lululemon).

For example, check out the CRZ Yoga Butterluxe Leggings, which are the spitting image of Lululemon Align leggings.


Or check out this amazing hoodie by the brand Laslulu, that is inspired by Lululemon’s Oversized Scuba Full-Zip Hoodie:

(I own it. I love it. Here’s a link to my in-depth review.)

And these are just a few examples!

I’ve attempted to compiled as many affordable Lululemon alternatives as I can, in one handy article. So without further ado, here’s the ultimate list, a major round-up of stylish activewear pieces, all available on Amazon.

As a reminder, although I note that these pieces might look similar to higher-end brands, these products are NOT counterfeit items.  These are completely separate products created by different brands that have a similar style. Shoppycat does NOT endorse, promote, or link to any counterfeit products or illegal copies of trademarked products.

Similar to Lululemon Align Legging

Many leggings claim to be as good as Lululemon Aligns. And some do come pretty close! These legging options all have simple seams and buttery-soft fabric. My personal favorites are the CRZ Yoga Butterluxe leggings, but you can’t go wrong with any of these brands. Most of the options also have a seamless waistband (no elastic). The Yogalicious leggings are the only ones with an elastic in the waistband. However the fabric on the Yogalicious is very nice, so if the elastic waistband doesn’t bother you, I definitely recommend you give them a try!


Lululemon In Movement Legging Alternative

It was a huge bummer when Lululemon discontinued the In Movement leggings. They were one of my favorites, due to their high waistband, flattering seams, and quick-dry fabric. But fortunately, these brands on Amazon offer some very similar styles that appear to be inspired by Lululemon In Movements (at a fraction of the price). 


Similar to Lululemon Fast and Free Leggings 

CRZ Yoga make a fantastic affordable option if you love Lululemon Fast and Frees! These are some of my favorite leggings (ever!) and are such a great value at about a quarter of the price of the Lululemon Fast and Frees. The fabric is sort of between Lululemon Nulux and Luxtreme. I do recommend sizing up because they run small. Inspired by Lululemon Fast and Frees, these leggings have a very stretchy fabric which is slick (rather than brushed), side pockets,  waistband with a continuous drawcord, and reflective details on the back of the lower legs. Oh yeah, and they come in a ton of colors and patterns… 39 options at the time of publishing. They make a 25″ and 28″ version.

Similar to Lululemon Wunder Under 

These options have similar seams to the Wunder Under. Fabric varies by brand. I like all of these, but my personal favorites are the QueenieKe leggings. Note: They do have an elastic in the waistband, in case that bothers you.


Lululemon Alternatives Similar to Align Jogger

Joggers are my favorite pants to wear when I’m lounging or working from home. My fav style of joggers are ones that don’t have a waistband tie or drawstring. I find this style of waistband is less bulky under clothes and also super comfortable (like for sitting at a desk all day). The higher end options for this jogger type include Lululemon Align joggers and Athleta Salutation joggers. But you can find much more affordable and similar pieces on Amazon.

These options all have a similar cut and style, but there are many different fabric options. My personal favorite joggers are the Colorfulkoala joggers. They are buttery soft, with a matte and slightly brushed fabric. However if you prefer more of a slick fabric, check out the pair by the Gym People. The slick fabric makes them less prone to attracting lint, fuzz, or pet hair!

Similar to Lululemon Dance Studio Pant

Similar to Lululemon On the Fly Jogger and On the Fly Pant

I rounded up several options, with different lengths available by these brands (full length, 7/8 length, or crops).

General joggers

Here are some more joggers that have what I feel is a higher-end activewear style.
