New year, new workout wear! It’s the perfect time to update those worn out leggings and tanks, friends. And as we know Athleta makes some of the best pieces for getting your sweat on. I’ve adored their workout tanks and bras for years and love that they offer them in D/DD bra sizes as well as A/C options.

Workout Wear Refresh: An Athleta Try-On

Here I tried out some new-to-me pieces that would be perfect for my favorite barre and yoga workouts, but with their amazing fabrics I’ll just be living in these all day honestly. Plus, that age-old trick of putting on workout wear so you workout? Yeah that’s my jam for sure. Here’s what I found:

1 | Elation Flare Pant

These Elation flare pants were a stand-out favorite of mine. The fabric is soooo smooth and soft but provides supportive compression without being uncomfortable. And this Spiced Cabernet color? Seriously gorgeous.

Fit Info: Fit is true to size. I’m 5’4″ with a shorter torso and typically a Medium these days in most workout wear. LOVE these as a streetwear-to-workout wear option, too! Comes in XXS – 3X, Tall + Petite.


2 | Seasoft Quarter Zip

This quarter-zip pullover is so lovely and soft, too. It’s got a silky brushed finish to the fabric that makes it a joy to wear and not too hot to pop on after a sweat sesh but thick enough for a good layer this time of year. You know I love a collar moment, too, and this doesn’t disappoint. Under $90 and I’m loving that Pyrite color, too!

Fit Info: The fit on this top is lovely and boxy without being huge. True to size and very soft performance fabric. Also comes in XXS – 3X, Tall + Petite.


3 | Elation V-Neck Longline Bra

This longline bra was another favorite piece I tried out and again I love that Athleta offers the D/DD options in most of their tanks for those of us who need that sizing. This is just long enough and perfect for your light workouts like pilates, barre and yoga, but supportive enough that I didn’t feel like I was moving around too much.

Fit Info: True to size on this. Highly recommend! Love that it’s in the matching Spiced Cabernet, too. Here’s the link to the A/C cup sizes.


4 | Aurora Seamless Crop Rib Tank

This Aurora tank is a second fab workout top find. I prefer a v-neck in most cases on my shorter torso and I love that I feel secure in this but still looks cute. I mean, why workout in something only functional eh? We still want to look good. I’d wear this on its own as a top during summer, too. SO good.

Fit Info: This is also true to size and a great length without being either too long or short with the high rise leggings. In XXS – 3X.


5 | Transcend Tight

The Athleta Transcend tights are a customer favorite. They’re in the same amazingly soft, smooth-but-structured fabric as the flare leggings above but in a classic legging shape. These are a workout wear staple and fit great, dry fast and perform well. The material feels luxurious yet has so much stretch!

Fit Info: True to your typical size for a bit of compression without feeling uncomfortable. I’m typically right between Regular + Petite sizing and typically stick to Regular for leggings and do petite for some of Athleta’s pants, depending on the look I want. LOVE that they offer so many size options in much of their clothing! Comes in XXS – 3X, Tall + Petite.


6 | Endless Bomber Jacket

This jacket was a cute new find for a great layering topper to pop on after a workout or to go to-and-from the studio. I like that it’s a cute cropped shape and easy to wear. It would layer under a coat this time of year beautifully and feels like a real upgrade from the old hoodies I tend to pop on much of the time. This looks way more chic.

  1. I love my aurora crop tank in the summer but would not recommend it for workouts, or at least nothing involving inversions. the stretchiness of the top makes it super comfy but i felt extremely exposed in certain positions, and i don’t have huge boobs. of course, everybody’s different, and it would probably be fine for exercises where you remain strictly upright!

  2. Love Athleta, and all their sister brands honestly. There is such incredible value in their products, and they are the ONLY women’s clothing retailer I know of who consistently offers tall sizing in tops as well as bottoms. It’s seriously true love for us long limbed people!

    You look incredible in that spiced Cabernet color btw. Beautiful lady 😍
