Can we all just say a silent prayer of thanks that we can officially default to leggings as our everyday PANTS?! You can lounge in them, run errands in them, sleep in them, go to work in them, and oh yeah.. workout in them 😉
I like to consider myself a pretty knowledgeable person when it comes to activewear (Once upon a time I did own an activewear brand, after all, and manufacture leggings for a living.. ahh the good ole’ days). So I know when a pair of leggings is worth the hefty price, and when it’s time to close that tab and keep online shopping elsewhere.
I keep hearing about all sorts of leggings you can find on Amazon that are similar to Lululemon. To be honest, I don’t know what brands other people are trying out, but I found three brands that are all under $30 and figured it wouldn’t hurt to order a few pairs and give them the gold old squat test! Check out my thoughts below (and happy squatting!) on three Amazon Lululemon Dupes that are just as good as the real thing!

Legging number one in the video! These might be my favorite. They’re the Colorfulkoala Women’s High Waisted Pattern Legging Full-Length Yoga Pant in Cyan Leopard. They’re snug, with some good compression, high waisted to cover the lower mom belly, and squat proof! They don’t roll down, and they’re pretty comfortable. I’m wearing a size small and these rate highest on my list. These are probably the most similar leggings like Lululemon Align. You can shop them here.
CRZ Yoga Leggings
Legging number two is the CRZ Yoga Women’s Naked Feeling High Waist Tight Yoga Pants Workout Leggings 25 Inches in The Smoke Mist. Woo. How’s that for a mouthful? These come in at number two – coincidentally, both in my video and in my rating system. They still have great compression, high waisted to cover the mom bulge, squat proof, and comfortable. I may have also ordered a second pair, shorts, and a sports bra. Definitely worth the cost! I’m also wearing size small. You can shop them here.
Pair number three is RBX Active Women’s Squat Proof High Waist Camo Prink Ankle Length Workout Running Yoga 7/8 Legging with Pockets in Camo Black. I’ve had these for a few months, and have them also in another pattern. They’re one of my favorites because they’re cute and super comfortable, and really thin – so you don’t feel like you’re all squeezed in. BUT – they’re definitely not as compressive as the other two. They do have a high waist, but I’ve noticed when I wear these to workout, I often have to keep tugging up the legs and sometimes the waist band. I’m not sure if this is the style and that’s what they do, or if it’s because they’re too big on me. I’m wearing a small, and really doubt I need the XS. I love them, but probably wouldn’t wear them for a ton of high intensity workouts. They’re great for when you’re just hitting the weights, though. I don’t think they show anything when I squat, but my 9 year old says “your butt looked pink when you did that.” So, interpret that how you will. You can shop them here.
Overall, I was really impressed by these three brands. Who knew that Amazon carried leggings similar to Lululemon in quality and comfort for a fraction of the price? What brands have you found that are less expensive than Lulu that you LOVE and can’t lift without?
