It doesn’t matter if you’ve been a longtime Lululemon activewear stan or have just been pining for their looks; one thing’s certain: The luxe activewear brand does deserve its flowers. But it’s also not the cheapest brand (yeah, some of us aren’t comfortable coughing up the triple-digit price point rn).
Fortunately for you, we scoured thousands of IG pages (including plus-size fitness and fashion influencers’) and web pages and found 10 of the most impressive, luxe, and incredibly sexy Lululemon MVP activewear alternates.
So, whether you’ve been eyeing the Align activewear rack, been wanting a larger-bust sports bra that won’t break the bank, or can’t rock your Adidas sneakers for another week, below are 10 of the best and under $80 Macy’s activewear pieces that are just as good as Lululemon’s.

Boxing, dancing, pilates, and downward-facing dog poses are a breeze in this super-supportive bra that works as perfectly as Lululemon’s options.

Oh, it also comes in a sophisticated off-white option (if you’re not afraid of smudging it with mustard or ketchup).
