Why Athleta:

Athleta has clothing to fit every athletic endeavor. In fact, when you go to their website, you can search for clothing by type of sport! These categories include: yoga & studio, run, gym & training, cycle & spin, tennis & golf, and hike. They also have an excellent swimwear line designed for beach and water sports–with tops and bottoms that move with your body, while keeping you cool and appropriately covered (no riding up or falling down). Their clothing is both functional and fabulous!

Fabrics and Designs

The fabrics used for Athleta apparel are chosen with function in mind. For athletes looking for help disguising any stink, they have a line of tanks, pants, and sports bras that include natural silver salts for antimicrobial protection. You will also find that their fabrics are chosen to be sport specific, with tops and bottoms ranging from breathable mesh for ultimate air flow and thicker fabrics for compression and increased blood flow.


All Athleta apparel range in size from XXS-XL. For some styles, they offer sizing in Tall, Petite, and Plus Sized–to accommodate 1X and 2X sized women. Athletes of all shapes and sizes can wear Athleta and can shop based on their current size for available options. They also have a free return and exchange policy-so it’s no hassle at all if you do get something that isn’t the right fit or style. One of our favorite features on the website is the customer reviews on sizing. Customers can rank particular styles so that you know before buying whether a style runs big, small, short, or long.


Tanks and tees range from about $30-50 at regular price, while shorts and pants range from about $40-60. Athleta is priced well compared to other athletic apparel stores offering similar styles and fabrics and should be expected to last–meaning that your money will be well spent on a durable item.

Athleta also has fairly regular seasonal sales that may be helpful for those working with a more limited budget. Lastly, if you are a fitness professional, you get an in-store 30% discount! Even if you’re not a trainer–check out their stores for FREE weekly classes such as running clubs, yoga lessons, and HIIT sessions.
