"stylish" gym gear

Don't judge me because I never spend money on gym gear (usually primark £3 leggings and t-shirt) but if really like to spend some more money on my gym clothes given I go quite a bit (usually 3 X week with a few runs and home work-outs at the weekend).

Has anyone seen anything similar to the attached for a good price? I actually don't mind some of the stuff primark are doing but my local one only has size 16-20s left.

I know I've been looking at too many pics of Millie mackintosh.

I have been buying recently from asda. They have some nice bits in there.

These are similar to the pair on the right. Decathlon are really good for reasonably priced good quality stuff.

I've got lots of bits from tk maxx and h and m.

Gap do great stuff, but also have a look at a website called Start Fitness
They have some great stuff in their sale section
I bought these a few weeks ago - 2 pairs for £15 and they look a lot more expensive!

Two people mentioned H&M to me today! Maybe I should check it out!

And thank you for the link which I'll also look at!

Definitely look at h and m. I've got
these in both colours...

They stay up during running and also pass the opaque during downward dog test. There's 25% off the h and m website at the moment too.

Decathlon, very time. I have some capris from there that are almost identical to the ones in your right photo, and they were around £8.
Unlike supermarket and high street stuff (in my experience), Decathlon gear is actually good for serious exercise too.

I got a complete outfit including stripy leggings from TK max in January all in nice colours that match and it has been a massive motivator for doing exercise <shallow> They normally have a good fitness rail. Otherwise agree re Decathlon.

I am sure I can see a bum cleavage in one of these Decathlon pics - weird! It has put me off them now.

Sorry, looked again and it is a belly button cleavage blush.

Naice I think it's a tummy button! Although it took a bit of looking at it. Some of the other poses are a bit odd too.

PurpleDaisies Tue 15-Mar-16 22:26:01

I have those-there's no bum cleavage! They look nice on.

Matalan activewear is really really good. I'm a gym wear addict and it's my favorite, I prefer it over my gore, north face, Ted baker, Nike stuff. H&M do funky stuff but I find them too short in mid section so the leggings creep down. I lilt them for gym work but not running. TK Maxx often have random bits in, some great, some totally crap!

I really like these too - has anyone seen them in store? They're not in my local one hmm
