Wearing the right pilates clothing can help you enjoy a safe, comfortable workout.
Whether you’re joining a class in our new pilates space at Sun Rock Yoga studio or
trying pilates at home, you’ll want to consider how your clothes fit, stretch, move, and
The athleisure trend has been in full swing for many years now, with no signs of slowing
down. As a result, most popular brands now carry clothing that’s ideal for working out,
and that could be considered pilates wear. But this doesn’t mean that you have to break
the bank to find great pilates clothing.
Keep reading to learn a few tips for choosing the best clothing for your pilates workouts
at home or in the studio, as well as some places to pick up great pilates clothing on any
What to Wear for Pilates Workouts
You could probably do pilates workouts in any clothing that you’d wear to the gym or on
a run. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be comfortable or able to enjoy an
Much like yoga, pilates workouts require you to bend, stretch, and move as you target
muscles throughout your body. Clothing that is too restrictive can prevent you from
reaching your full range of motion. It can also make it difficult to breathe properly during
On the opposite end of the spectrum, one mistake many people make when trying
pilates for beginners is choosing clothing that is too loose. Movements that require you
to bend forward may cause your shirt to fall over your face. Or, you may find your pants
bunching uncomfortably when doing exercises on the floor.
Instead, it’s important to find a happy medium. You want to choose pilates wear that fits
close to the body, without being too tight. One great way to do this is to try on your outfit
and do some pilates at home. That way, you’ll make sure that your pilates clothing is
comfortable before heading to the studio.
In addition to finding the right fit, you’ll also want to consider the fabric of your pilates
clothing. Look for materials that are soft, moisture-wicking, and thin enough to be
flexible and comfortable. Bamboo, spandex, nylon, and other flexible fabrics are all
Where to Buy Pilates Wear
Now that you know a few tips to help you choose the best pilates clothing, it’s time to
get shopping. Whether you’ve already scheduled pilates workouts at our studio or are
thinking about trying a pilates workout at home first, purchasing the right clothes from
the start can help you find what you like and enjoy a safe, comfortable workout.
Let’s take a look at a few popular retailers offering pilates wear.
Looking and feeling great while doing pilates workouts doesn’t have to mean breaking
the bank. One great spot to save on pilates wear while still enjoying a large selection
and a wide range of sizes and styles is Amazon. The online shopping giant carries
every type of pilates clothing you could want, from leggings to tops to bras and more.
The best way to find pilates wear on Amazon is to make sure that you’re reading
reviews. Look for clothing that has lots of great reviews, with bonus points for reviews
that include pictures of the clothing in action. Another great thing about buying pilates
wear on Amazon is that most purchases include free returns, so you can try it on at
home to see if you like it.
Another popular spot for purchasing yoga and pilates clothing is Lululemon. The
athleisure powerhouse has a reputation for comfortable, cute clothes that are great for a
variety of exercises, including pilates workouts.
The Lululemon Align leggings are one of the most popular options for any workout. But
the Lululemon Unlimit Tight, Get in Line Tight, and Wunder Under Tight are also great
for pilates workouts.
Owned by Gap, Athleta is another popular option for pilates wear. While it’s on the
higher end of the budget, similar to Lululemon, Athleta tends to offer more sales, which
means that you can sometimes snag a great deal on high-quality pilates clothing.
Athleta offers a variety of comfortable options for pilates workouts at home or in the
studio. They are known for their soft fabrics and comfortable fits, making them a great
choice for pilates for beginners or those with more experience.
One brand that is on the rise is Halara. This online retailer specializes in workout
clothing that is just as cute as Lululemon or other high-end brands but at a fraction of
the cost. Their leggings, shorts, tops, and bras come in a wide variety of colors, making
them a great choice if you like to mix and match your pilates wear.
Another great spot to grab a deal on pilates clothing is Target. While they might not
have the selection of Halara or Amazon, if you are someone who prefers to shop in-
store instead of online, Target is a great alternative.
The retailer carries several brands of workout clothing, including their popular JoyLab
and the long-standing favorite, All in Motion. In recent years, Target has even offered
some “dupes” of popular styles found at Lululemon, Free People, and other high-end
