Athleta Review

I have been a die hard Lululemon fan for years. Convinced that there were no other leggings and work out gear that would match Lulu’s quality, so I wouldn’t even consider other brands. Then I got an Athleta gift card.

I received a $50 gift card and thought that I would for sure be able to find some things especially on sale. Well I was quickly proven wrong when I noticed that their price point is right in line with Lululemon which was surprising from a brand that is connected with Old Navy and the Gap.

I was able to find this t-shirt and leggings. They were having a sale so I received an extra 20% off of sale price which brought this entire outfit to right around $60.

As far as the leggings go, I need high waisted which these are. I noticed that as I was doing more jumping around or burpees that they did tend to fall down and I had to adjust them a lot. I did however like that that whatever material they are made out of does not attract dog hair which was a plus. I highly recommend sizing down in these. I bought a small and I am usually a medium or 6.

The shirt is really nice. The material is soft and long enough to slightly cover your back side. I also bought a small in this one.

All in all I was not blown away with Athleta and would honestly probably stick with Lululemon, especially since Athleta’s price point is the same. Had Athleta came in with a lower price point I would probably convert.
