Some of the Best Lululemon and Gymshark Alternatives Are on Sale for Prime Day

Don't miss the new low prices on these top-rated workout clothes.

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Lululemon and Gymshark are known for their high-performing, stylish athletic wear. The problem is, they're far from cheap. For example, a pair of Lululemon's bestselling leggings will cost you at least $98. However, TikTok has popularized many Amazon alternatives -- high-quality products from lesser-known (or less expensive) brands -- for both workout lines that are much more affordable than their counterparts. 

I've scoured TikTok trends and Amazon reviews to find alternatives for Lululemon and Gymshark athletic wear for a fraction of the price -- without skimping on quality. Here are the best ones I've come across, most of which are currently on sale for Prime Day, based on reviews and in some cases my own experience trying them out. (You can also check out all of the best Amazon Prime Day deals we've come across so far, and the best Prime Day deals under $50.)

Best Lululemon alternatives

In my experience, this sports bra/cropped workout top is the best alternative for the Lululemon Align Cropped Tank. Its fabric is buttery and lightweight, and it comes with built-in removable pads. After I bought it in two different colors and loved it so much, I made all of my friends buy one, too.
