Lululemon, Nike, Adidas, Outdoor Voices—there are seemingly endless options when it comes to activewear. One retailer that has recently risen to athleisure fame is Athleta, a women's activewear brand known for its high-quality and stylish clothing designed for everything from yoga to running.
While there are plenty of pieces to shop at Athleta (and plenty that are worth buying, according to shoppers and our own Reviewed staff!), there are a few best-sellers that people are particularly obsessed with. Below are the 10 most popular items you can buy at Athleta, including the best face masks, the leggings that everyone is wearing, and the perfect tops for both lounging and exercising.
1. Everyday Face Masks
Of all the face masks our experts have tested, we found the Athleta masks to be the very best. They're comfortable, breathable and have both adjustable straps and a wire nose piece so you can customize the fit. Even better? The triple-layered masks come in a bevy of pretty hues and patterns, from plain black to camo.
2. Salutation Stash Pocket Tight
People are obsessed with Athleta leggings and one of the best-selling pairs is the Salutation Stash Pocket Tight, which come in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes. According to the more than 3,800 reviews, the leggings are both flattering and comfortable, providing just the right amount of compression. They're made with Athleta's Powervita fabric, which people say is nice and thick (a.k.a. it's totally squat-proof for the gym-goers among us!).
3. Racer Run Shorts
Looking for the perfect pair of running shorts? Look no further than Athleta's Racer Run shorts, which have over 1,200 glowing reviews. Made with silky smooth recycled fabric, people love that the shorts are very breathable thanks to the mesh ventilation and that they have a large zip pocket to hold your keys or phone while you run. Even better, the popular shorts are available in a variety of prints and colors.
4. Coaster Luxe Sweatshirt
Cozy up in Athleta's most popular pullover: The Coaster Luxe Sweatshirt. More than 2,800 reviewers have given it a 5-star review, saying it's incredibly soft and high-quality. The side slits allow you to move freely while the fleecy interior keeps you warm post-workout (or any time, really). If you love it as much as others do, you can buy one in all 11 pretty colors, too.
5. Breezy Tank
Lightweight, airy, comfortable—all things you want in a tank top and all things you'll find in this one from Athleta. As the name suggests, the Breezy tank is made with ultra-breathable fabric that reviewers say is loose enough to be comfortable and forgiving, yet fitted enough to still be flattering. It's perfect for everything from working out to running errands to just lounging on the couch.
6. Soho Skort
Skorts give you the best of both worlds: the breezy style of a skirt paired with the full coverage (and chafe-prevention) of shorts. The Soho Skort from Athleta has more than 1,700 positivereviews for being both comfortable and flattering, and shoppers say it's the perfect length (i.e. not too short, not too long). Plus, it even has deep pockets to carry all your essentials while you're out and about.
7. Ultra High Rise Elation Tight
Meet the leggings you'll want to live in all season long. Available in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes, the high-waisted Elation tights are both buttery soft and supportive, according to hundreds of fans. They rave that the leggings stay in place during even the most intense workouts and some people even compared them to the wildly popular Lululemon Aligns (!!).
8. Renew Racerback Tank
Over 400 women have given the Renew Racerback tank their stamp of approval. Why? Not only is it made of soft, sweat-wicking fabric (that also happens to be UPF 50!) but it fits and flatters every curve and hits at just the right spot on your waist (i.e. it's not quite a crop top yet not too long, either). Many shoppers say they bought one—and then bought more in different colors because they loved it so much.
9. Advance Bra
When it comes to sports bras, you want something that's both supportive and comfortable (i.e. it holds the girls in place but also doesn't feel too constrictive). That's what you'll get with the Advance Bra from Athleta, which comes in cup sizes from B to DD. Made especially for high-impact activities, the bra has adjustable straps and an adjustable band so you can customize the fit to your own body and has a mesh back for ultimate breathability.
10. Skyline Pant II
In case you didn't know, Athleta has more than just athletic clothes—the retailer also has some stylish everyday pieces, too. Take the Skyline pants, for example, which have hundreds of positive reviews and come in colors like navy, khaki, and rust. People love that they're soft and lightweight and that you can dress them up or down. Plus, they have a tie belt with pretty stitching that creates a flattering cinched waist.
