Every high street retailer seems to have brought out a sportswear range now and most of them look pretty amazing. But if you’re actually wanting to wear your gymwear to the gym (or for any other sport for that matter) then it needs to be of good quality. That’s no constantly pulling up leggings, fading after the first wash or embarrassing rips mid-session! Here are my top three picks of the best low-budget activewear ranges with surprisingly good quality!
Known for their extremely low prices, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from Primark sportswear. Aesthetically, I was impressed; bright pops of colour alongside patterned leggings and plainer basics. With lots of variety and on-trend colours, they cover pretty much every visible need. The range also isn’t lacking in options with a huge selection of sports bras, leggings, tops and jackets. So far so good, but I was still sceptical about how they would perform once I had them on…
Primark, I apologise for ever doubting you. My leggings fit perfectly and I didn’t have to adjust them once throughout my entire day! The sports bra also fit well and looked amazing- although I don’t have too much to support up top, I felt secure and confident all day.
I bought the Navy Mesh Leggings at £8 and Padded Sports Bra with Mesh Back in coral and grey for £4 each.
My absolute all time fave. Lots of variety, amazing prices & new options throughout the season to keep you coming back for more (eeeek!). I recently bought the £13 Medium Impact Sports Bra and have my eye on the Active Cross-Back Jumpsuit for £23!
Stylish and affordable, you will be looking and feeling like fire in the new H&M activewear range. The colours, the shapes, the prices. Everything is on point. I have my eye on the £17.99 Medium Support Sports Bra.
Know any other great quality, low price sportswear ranges? I’d love to hear! x

Athletic Works Headband £3

Here’s one for the ladies! A brand new activewear range from our much loved sports apparel professionals, Adidas. Evolving from their Adidas by Stella McCartney premium range, (which is now 10 years old by the way- wowwee!) this is a lower price point collection for fashion conscious ‘action girls’.
StellaSport compromises colour-blocking, prints and staple pieces with prices starting at £11 and ending at £75. According to Stella McCartney herself who was responsible for GB ‘s 2012 Olympic kit, the StellaSport girl is, ‘young, current and vibrant.’ I’d say that’s us, right?
I’m a particularly big fan of the StellaSport jackets- stylish and affordable- but you can choose your own faves, as the collection is available to buy online and in store right now. Although you’d better be quick because I have a feeling that they won’t be available for long! xx
P.S. Brand new gym clothing- the perfect way to get you in the mood to exercise (and keep you on track for the Tigeress Lifestyle January Fitness Challenge)!
