Best Workout Sets I Actually Wear

Workout sets are the new it thing. No longer are they used for actually working out (although yes, they’re great for that too) but they’re also worn as part of your outfit!

If you’re looking for a workout set to workout out in or simply run errands or grab brunch in, look no further! Below are 5 different workout sets I’ve actually tried and worn to give you the best review possible.

1. Best for Everyday Wear: OQQ Ribbed High Waist Shorts and Bra

If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more expensive looking and less like you’re going for a run, try this ribbed set. This bottoms are high waisted and stay up and suck you in. These shorts have no pockets in them.

The top is more tank top style than sports bra style and not racerback. The fabric is nice and thick so you won’t be able to see through it and the bra is padded.

It comes in a million different colors and also one shoulder style for the sports bra!

2. Best for Low Impact: Green Toplook Seamless Shorts and Ultra Stretch Sports Bra

This set comes as a complete set including both the top and bottom. The top is a traditional racer back sports bra type and the shorts are nice and high waisted.

Personally I won’t run in these because the shorts seem to ride up a tad but I love this color (and many of the other colors) and wear it around the house and running errands.

It fits tts and is incredibly inexpensive! I have it in both this deep green and the bright red!

3. Best for Working Out: Lululemon Align Shorts & Top

As we all know, Lululemon has some of the most loved workout clothes but they do come with a price tag! However, if you’re looking for something to actually workout in, specifically a higher impact exercise like running, this one will be perfect for that.

I’m very picky about what I run in and this is one set that I run in consistently. They material is butter soft, the shorts don’t fall down or ride up and they look cute too!

The sports bra is the Flow Y Nulu Bra. It’s a low impact bra that’s super soft and lightweight.

Both the sports bra and shorts come in a ton of different colors and prints so you can mix and match. The shorts also come in 4″, 6″, 8″ and 10″ inseam.

4. Best for Good Coverage: CRZ Yoga High Neck Sports Bra and Naked Feeling Shorts

A high waisted bottom plus a high neck sports bra workout set? Yes, please! This is such a flattering workout set and perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to show off too much skin or wants a bit more coverage from the sun.

I love all CRZ Yoga clothes especially for workouts and these are no different! They feel so soft and buttery, just like the Lululemon Aligns. They have great support and all of my CRZ clothes have lasted a long time.

This top and bottom are sold separately making it ideal for those who don’t wear the same size on the top and on the bottom (like me!). I picked up an x-small in this top (I normally wear a size small in tops because of the size of my ribs) because the small fit a bit large on me under the arm. Another great option to mix and match.

The shorts have a drawstring closure for additional support if needed and two side pockets that can hold anything from the keys to your phone.

5. Best Versatility: CRZ Convertible Racerback Sports Bra and Naked Feeling Shorts

If you want the option of a regular bra like top then this set is a great option! The sports bra has a tradition hook and eye closure and it can be worn both regular or racerback style.

It has flattering sheer fabric at the top and comes with padding. There’s no wires in the bra and it fits true to size to most other sports bras.

This is sold as separates as well. The shorts come in multiple inseams – 3″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ and a ton of different colors and patterns. It has a hidden pocket under the waist to safely hold your keys or credit card. There’s are one of my favorite shorts!

I hope this helps you find a workout set you can love and wear with confidence! Whether you’re running, lifting, doing yoga or running errands, you’ll love any of these 5 different workout sets.

If you want biker shorts, I have a very large collection of those! Here’s some of my favorite bike shorts to wear.
