I’m giving you all of the pros and cons of my favorite and affordable workout clothes on Amazon prime!
I’m a firm believer in not spending a fortune on athletic wear and love finding great deals on Amazon Prime! I know there are those who swear by their Lululemon, FENDI, Ivy Park, P.E. Nation, etc., but this girl would rather save her dough for something that’s not going to get drenched in sweat. I work as a Zumba fitness instructor and at the end of each class I look like a hot mess. I really wish I was the type of girl who glistened—but that’s just not the case! Therefore, my workout clothing needs to be durable enough to hold up to weekly washings and cute and comfortable enough for me to want to wear it. Here are my current tried and true favorite leggings and tanks from Amazon!

Favorite Amazon Leggings and Tanks
There is a reason these Ododos capris and leggings have a four star rating with over 13,000 reviews!
PROS: These are incredibly flattering and surprisingly good quality, especially considering the price! Retailing around $20 they tick off all of the checkmarks you’re looking for in a quality workout legging. The high waist and 4-way compression material sucks you in at all the right spots and yet remains extremely comfortable. The pockets on the side allow you to store a credit card and smaller phone. The seams are nicely sewn and the inseam is gusseted. The leggings come in a myriad of colors, patterns, and lengths.
CONS: None. Seriously, these are the best!
I paired these leggings with the cropped Killin’ It tank. The tank is only $9.99 and pairs nicely with all high waisted leggings. This is a little more skin than I typically show at the gym, but it is wonderful for keeping cool! The tank is lower in the back than the front and is breathable during a sweat sesh.
Bombshell brand makes adorable sock leggings that retail for over $80. This Amazon dupe costs only $17 and is so adorable and comfy!
PROS: The leggings are affordable, adorable, seamless, and high waisted. The inseam is gusseted and they are squat proof. The leggings are compression leggings and the material is nice and thick.
CONS: They run small! I read reviews and based off of sizing information I bought the Large. I really could have gone up to an XL. It’s a bummer that these will only fit smaller women. The elastic band in the waist needs to be thicker. They stay in place during a workout but I prefer a thick band at the waist.
I really love the body countering style of these leggings and couldn’t resist buying another pair in green as you’ll see below!
PROS: The material on these leggings is incredibly thick making them perfect for winter. The seams are well sewn and the high waisted band stays in place and is extremely comfortable and supportive.
CONS: At $27.99, this particular brand is pricier than others offering a similar looking legging.
I paired these leggings with the cheeky Thick Thighs Thin Patience cropped tank. The words made me giggle! The tank is very comfy and looks great with high waisted leggings.
These leggings are adorable but probably the lowest quality of all of the leggings I purchased. I love the style and think I would have been happier if I’d sized up.
PROS: These camo leggings are incredibly cute and affordable at only $14.99! They are stretchy and the fabric breathes and is not see-through. They wash up well and do not shrink or fade. Super cute for the price!
CONS: The inseam is not gusseted and the sizing runs very small. I should have sized up on these. The waistband doesn’t stay in place as well as the other high waisted leggings so they fit more like a mid-waist legging. The material is cheap.
I’ve worn ballerina tie leggings for years and think they are so fun and adorable! This brand offers 20 different quirky and fun patterns to choose from, and I own two of the patterns.
PROS: They are fun, different, feminine, and flattering. Material is not see-through and is comfy. They are breathable and keep me cool.
CONS: They run small and the material is on the cheaper side of the leggings I own. The inseam is not gusseted.
The Open Back Tank is incredibly cute comfortable and runs true to size. It comes in seven solid colors.
I apologize for the horrible quality of the picture below, but I forgot to try this pattern on for you so had to grab a video screenshot of me dancing in the leggings! I’m wearing a large, so they do run small.
These seamless sculpted leggings look similar to the gray/black leggings I posted earlier in this post but I purchased this two-piece legging and sports bra set from a different brand.
PROS: At $25.99 for both pieces the price is amazing! The leggings are very flattering with thick material. The sports bra that comes in the set is supportive with removable pads and adjustable straps. I would definitely wear a tank over this at the gym, but the set is cute on its own.
CONS: The leggings do not feel as good of quality as my gray/black pair and are a bit tighter in the waist. I’m not sure if this is due to a difference in brand, or if it’s just a fluke. I bought a Medium in both pairs and feel like I could have used a large in the green.
