Best Used Designer Activewear

Fuel Your Workout Obsession With Quality Pre-Loved Activewear

Hey there, fabulous fashionistas! If you're anything like us, you're constantly looking for ways to upgrade your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Well, buckle up because we've got some game-changing insights coming your way, especially when it comes to leggings, joggers, and hoodies that won't hurt your wallet.

First things first, let's talk about the magic of resale activewear. Picture this: you're scrolling through your favorite online luxury thrift store (Clothes Mentor *wink-wink*), and you stumble upon a pair of your dream leggings or yoga pants from a top brand like Athleta or Lululemon. But here's the best part—they're gently used and high quality. Cue the happy dance for this incredible discount find!

We know what you might be thinking: "Is shopping resale really worth it?" Short answer: absolutely. Not only are you saving serious cash with these discounts, but it's sustainable and gives these stylish pieces a second chance to shine, be it track jackets, fleece wear, or sweatpants. It's a win-win for both your wallet and the planet.

Speaking of brands, let's talk about some of the hottest names in activewear. From Alo’s performance-driven designs to the sleekness of Lululemon, there's no shortage of options to suit your style and workout needs. Plus, companies like Athleta are leading the way in size inclusivity, ensuring that women of all sizes can feel comfortable and stylish while moving their bodies. It's all about feeling confident and empowered in what you wear.

But activewear isn't just for the gym anymore. Nope, these days, it's all about versatility. 

Out with your girlfriends? Rock your favorite pair of leggings with a cozy oversized sweatshirt for a laid-back coffee date with the girls.

Running errands? Pair a sleek sports bra with a loose-fitting tank top and high-waisted jeans for a casual-chic look that's perfect for knocking out your to-do list.

Lounging around the house? Tossing on a cute matching set with a hoodie will give you all the inspiration you need to get those chores done. Or, opt for sweatpants and a soft sweatshirt for the ultimate in-home comfort.

You were probably thinking we forgot about shoes, huh? Impossible! We also have an entire selection of athletic shoes to complete your workout ensemble. We carry popular brands such as Nike, Adidas, and New Balance, so whether you need supportive sneakers for your next run or stylish trainers for a casual day out, we've got you covered.

Now, let's talk about workout trends. There are tons to choose from, like HIIT workouts, yoga sessions, or just a simple brisk walk to get your body moving. Having the right gear can seriously up your game. If you need inspiration, here's a quick breakdown of what kind of athletic wear is essential for each:

HIIT Workouts

HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) requires comfortable shoes and clothes that move with your body as you give it your all during this intense workout. Look for breathable tops, supportive sports bras, and moisture-wicking leggings to keep you cool and comfortable.


For yoga, opt for form-fitting attire that won't get in the way as you execute difficult positions. Think yoga pants or leggings with a high waistband for added support and lightweight tops that allow maximum mobility and breathability.


When hitting the pavement, choose supportive running shoes that provide cushioning and stability. Pair them with moisture-wicking socks to keep your feet dry, and don't forget reflective gear if you're running outdoors in low light.

Dance Workouts

Whether you're grooving to the beat in a Zumba class or busting a move in a dance cardio session, opt for activewear that allows for freedom of movement. Look for lightweight, stretchy fabrics that won't restrict your motion as you get your dance on.

So, to all our fashion-forward fitness friends out there, let's make one thing clear: buying pre-loved activewear is a total game-changer. It's about embracing sustainability, snagging killer deals on top brands, and feeling confident and empowered in whatever you're doing.
