It’s important to be comfortable during your workout. But you know what’s more important? Just being comfortable, period. So who are we to judge you for wanting to enjoy some athletic wear even if you skip the athletics part?
1. These removable padded sports bras provide support when you work out, or when you’re just binge-watching Netflix—we won’t think less of you either way.
Helpful review: “I wasn’t expecting much due the price but I am shocked at the quality and comfort of these bras. I would not recommend buying them if you are looking for a true “sports” bra to work out in but they are great for a comfortable no wire alternative to wear to work, wear under t-shirts etc. I plan to buy more which is a rare thing for me to do.” – raquel
Super TMI review: “These fit too close to my armpits to be comfortable for me. A lot of rubbing. Just kinda a weird cut and style, which caused like seriously way, way too much rubbing. I ended up returning them, but only after they gave me a rash that ended up bleeding through my shirt.” – Julie J.

2. These high waist leggings are perfect for doing yoga or playing sports or, you know, eating an entire box of Oreos in one sitting.
Helpful review: “I took a chance on these and love them so I ordered the pink pair too. They are perfect for jogging or my yoga/pilate class as they stay in place and no adjustments are even needed.” – Sandi
Incredibly, passionately angry review that may or may not be helpful: “I have some pants that are kind of like these that my mom bought for me. I love them so I was hoping these were the same ones. Nope! Couldn’t be more wrong. These are TRASH PANTS. 10 out of 10 total crappola.” – Anne

3. These leggings have seams that won’t chafe, which might not really matter if you just wear them to relax and check Instagram, but just be yourself.
Helpful review: “OMG I honestly didn’t expect these pants to be as great as they are for the cost. The design is high quality and similar to some of my Lulu lemon pants.” – Theophainia Brassard
Not very helpful (and very unfortunate) review: “These pants fit fine at first but the first night I wore them I ended up spilling cheap red wine all over them and the stains were impossible to get out so I’m never going to buy these again.” – Joan D.

4. These shorts will wick away moisture to keep your workout going smoothly. They’re also super stretchy, so if you want to just let yourself go and forget about working out, these shorts are still a good call.
Helpful review: “These are very comfortable shorts. They do not ride up too bad and tend to stay in place. The top waist band folds down to reveal a small pocket that would be great for holding keys while at the gym, and small music players.” – brea lund
Somewhat helpful, a bit uncomfortable, and incredibly adorable review: “with these shorts, it is wedgie city over here. It’s got nothing to grab on to so when I move, they move… Up my butt. But I met my current boyfriend about seven months ago while I was wearing these shorts. he didn’t say it at the time (he was polite and charismatic) but he told me after we had dated a while that these shorts were what caught his eye, so maybe they were worth the wedgie after all” – Stacy G.

5. This wire-free crossback padded bra is great for running, or simply avoiding your problems.
Helpful review: “Exceeded my expectations especially for how inexpensive this is. Very cute! Not for a ton of serious jumping around for the busty but for weights and cardio machines it is great!” – Jackie C.
Grammatically questionable review: “Bra were Too small, tight and Unflexible w cheapsih synthetic material I liked that pads were built in (dislike removables) but had to return bc of the above isuses.” – Julie

6. These inspirational socks will get you motivated. If they don’t, they’re still comfortable and we won’t judge you.
Helpful review: “These socks are awesome. They have support around the arch and are nicely cushioned in the heel and toe. I just love the design too. Very fun.” – Brandi Singleton
A painful review that should remind you to make sure you know which design you ordered: “The socks themselves are fine but I wish they would have made it more clear that there are multiple different designs. My friend was in the hospital and so I ordered her two pairs to make her feel better. I thought I clicked the ‘Carry On’ and ‘Be Strong’ designs but she said she ended up being sent the wrong pairs. At first she was livid but then I explained that I didn’t actually intend to send the pairs that said ‘Lucky’ and ‘Suck It Up’ to her while she was hospitalized.” – Annie G.

7. This “Run Now Wine Later” shirt is a must-have, even if you just whine and avoid running and go straight to the wine.
Helpful review: “Love this shirt. My favorite gym shirt.” – Marissa Marxen
A very profane review: “I ordered a fucking LARGE, which is what I always fucking wear, but this shit fit more like a goddamn medium at best. Absolute bullshit.” – Alli M.

8. These High Waist Tummy Control Power Flex Yoga Capris are perfect for binge-eatin—I mean working out. (No, of course I don’t actually mean working out, that’d be terrible. Relax).
Helpful review: “Great fit. I like the slimming effect and the fact that it flattens your tummy. For us with a gut after having kids, it’s essential. It’s definitely a good buy.” – Mckinzey Swartz
A way-too-enthusiastic review: “After training for a half marathon earlier this year I wore through my other workout pants and needed some for my current 10k training. I absolutely LOVE training and these are SO GOOD to train in. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE these pants. My favorite thing about them is that the pocket in the waistband HOLDS MY PHONE! YES! I can stuff my whole iPhone 6s w/case into the pocket with room to spare! I could probably get an iPhone + size phone in there! They are soooooo comfy and perfect for working out or lounging around. The waistband stays up, the legs stay down, everything about these pants rocks my world.” – RS157

9. These Active Crossover Pants are perfect for crossing over from your bed to your couch and back to your bed.
Helpful review: “I almost never buy workout clothes from Forever 21, but I really really love these knit pants. The waist has elastic which makes them great for athletic stuff.” – Sydney J.
A review from an angry former employee of Forever 21: “Don’t ever give money to this godforsaken store. I worked at the one at the mall in Texas and my manager was the world’s biggest asshole and I never even got a discount on any of the clothes and i hated my boss and i hated my job and now I try to make sure that no one else ever buys from Forever 21 ever again.” – Katie C.

Helpful review: “The shirt feels a little big but its cute and incredible breathable for the gym.” – Alyssa C.
A “that sucks but honestly who cares” review: “I bought it for a specific occasion and didn’t have time to return it but it was delivered with a stain on it. The fact that I wasn’t able to wear this to my friend’s beach wedding made ms so mad, and Jackie was so upset with me for looking so trashy because of the stain.” – Susan K.

12. This jumpsuit is great for destroying your workout, or simply destroying an entire gallon of ice cream as you rewatch every episode of Sex and the City.
Helpful review: “Forever21 has really been stepping up their game and once again this jumpsuit does not disappoint, I ordered the small and i have zero complaints about it. ” – Sabrina
Review highlighting what’s important in life: “So I got this as motivation to actually follow through with my new year’s resolution to go to the gym more. I’ve totally failed to work out more, but this jumpsuit is fucking amazing for dancing around and being a goofball with your friends. I feel so fun and confident and cute, even when i remember how much work i should be doing instead of just messing around in my super cute and comfy jumpsuit.” – Trina
