When it comes to workout apparel, Lululemon is often held as the gold standard. While their leggings and other gear have earned cult-favourite status, it’s not always in the budget to spend upwards of $100 on a single pair of yoga pants.
Luckily, if you know where to look you can find similar styles at a fraction of the cost, without having to break the bank. One pair of top-rated leggings has been gaining shoppers’ attention online, and starting at just $22, it’s easy to see why.
SHOP IT: Amazon, from $22
The Yunoga Women's Ultra Soft High Waisted Seamless Leggings have been touted as an affordable alternative to Lululemon’s Align Pants, and feature an ultra-soft, lightweight design. With a high waist and second skin feel, they’re ideal for yoga practice or lounging at home.
Available in 15 different colours and patterns, these machine washable leggings are moisture wicking and squat-proof. They also offer four-way stretch for compression and support, with excellent elastic recovery that helps them hold their shape even after plenty of washing and wearing.
What shoppers are saying
Backed by 4.7 stars on more than 3,400 global ratings, it’s easy to see that these leggings are a hit among shoppers. They’ve also been gaining in popularity recently, as sales have increased 1,699% this week.
“I have quite a legging collection with $100 leggings and cheap leggings, but these are by far the best,” admitted one reviewer. “True to size 7/8 length on tall people and full length on short people. Soft, comfy, but holds the squishy spots in. Utter freakin perfection.”
“These are the closest Lulu dupes you will find. I have the Aligns (and love them), but I wanted to put these to the test,” added another. “These are pretty much identical. They are almost exactly as soft (very slight difference only noticeable if you are feeling both of them at the same time lol) and the same great quality.”
The brand notes in their size guide that these do run slightly small, so if you prefer comfort over compression, your best bet is to size up for a better fit.
“The material was so buttery and the length was wonderful but I just couldn’t deal with how constricting they were. Definitely size up,” reads one review.
To buy or not to buy?
Starting at just $22, these lightweight leggings make a great affordable addition to your collection of loungewear. With a soft and comfortable construction that rivals other pairs that are more than four times their cost.
Just be sure to pay close attention to the size that you’re ordering, and you’re sure to find your new perfect pair.
