Let’s face it: Lululemon leggings, tanks, sports bras, and shorts are super cute and functional, but few of us can afford to drop a chunk of our paychecks on a pair of Lululemon Align Pants or Wunder Under Tights.
Luckily, we don’t have to: The enduring popularity of athleisure gear means that companies are coming up with Lululemon dupes for 2019 that look — and act — like the name brand, but cost a fraction of the price.
The problem? You don’t have time to spend hours shopping to find activewear that rivals Lululemon.
Now you don’t have to.
We’ve scoured e-shelves to find the best Lululemon dupes that live up to the hype by being cute, functional and Lululemon quality (not easy, believe us!).
These Lululemon dupes are all on Amazon, so you can get them delivered to your door in as few as two days (if you have Prime, of course!).
(Psst… we rounded up the best Gymshark dupes, too! Check out our favorites).
Lululemon Dupes: Leggings
We all know Lululemon went through a little drama a few years ago with their leggings and yoga pants. It seems like the company has made good on its promise to improve quality because every pair of leggings are bomb — except for the price tag.
There are three brands we’ve found on Amazon that are similar to Lululemon in everything except cost. Even better: All leggings dupes get high reviews from people who’ve bought them.
These Baleaf leggings are made of a blend of Spandex and nylon (for solid colors) and a mix of cotton, polyester, and Spandex (for the charcoal color).
They’re not see-through and are made to be moisture-wicking, breathable, and stretchy. Plus, they have a hidden pocket like Lululemon leggings!
The brains behind these Yogalicious High-Waist Leggings nailed the whole "butter-soft" feel of Lululemon leggings, making them one of the most spot-on dupes. The 86 percent polyester and 14 percent Spandex blend gives the best of both worlds: some compression to hold you in, along with stretch and that soft feel.
Lululemon Dupes: Sports Bras
Sports bras can really make or break a gym visit. There’s the function aspect: You want them to do their job (AKA hold the girls in), but you also need them to look cute while you’re doing a squat or a sun salutation.
Lululemon sports bras can do both, but they cost anywhere from $40 to $100 plus. We found a few bra dupes that’ll fool even the most discriminating of Lulu fans.
Lululemon Dupes: Tanks
Workout tanks run a close second to leggings in the category of “essential workout gear,” but they don’t get nearly as much attention. We’d argue that they’re even more important, because, without a good, secure tank, you won’t be able to kill your lifts, yoga session or run.
There aren’t nearly as many Lululemon dupes in the tanks category, but the ones we have found really hit the mark.
Like leggings, the brand earns high marks for the 90 Degree by Reflex Power Flex Racerback Tank that is almost a straight-up dupe for the Lululemon Cool Racerback Tank. The only difference, according to reviewers, is that the dupe is a bit thinner than the name-brand version.
The fabric of the tank depends on which you buy: The solid-colored tank is 92 percent Nylon and 8 percent Spandex, while the print is 92 percent polyester and 8 percent Spandex. The Heather-colored tank is in a class all its own with 47 percent Nylon, 46 percent Polyester, and 7 percent Spandex.
The only note: Wash the 90 Degree by Reflex Power Flex Racerback Tank before wearing it.
You’re basically getting two Lululemon dupes in one with the Icyzone Built-In Bra Tank. The open-back tank comes with a removable padded sports bra for extra oomph. The lightweight tank is made with stretchy, moisture-wicking "power" fabric — a mix of 90 percent Polyester and 10 percent Spandex.
The biggest complaint about these Lululemon dupes is that they’re on the long side.
Lululemon Dupes: Shorts
Finding the right running shorts is a challenge — to put it lightly. You want them long enough to cover all the important bits, but short (and loose) enough to give you the range of motion you want during a workout. Oh, and they can’t ride up or cause chafing either.
It’s a tall order, but Lululemon running shorts can do the job — if you’re able to cough up anywhere from $50 to $70 for a small amount of fabric.
The Lululemon dupes that we found do the same as the name brand, but for a fraction of the cost.
Did someone say pockets?! The Baleaf Women's Activewear Shorts With Pockets are all about comfort. They most closely resemble the Sunsetting Short with its cotton-and-spandex design (actual material combination depends on the color). The soft, skin-friendly design has big pockets, an elastic waistband with drawstring, and a moisture-wicking design.

Lululemon Dupes: Running Shirts
When the weather cools down, you need running shirts that’ll keep you warm while wicking sweat away from your body (extra important when the temps are frigid). Stretchy fabric is also important — it helps you keep the range of motion you need, no matter if you’re running a 5K or doing the teaser in Pilates.
The Lululemon Swiftly Relaxed Long Sleeve 2.0 fits all of the requirements, but at $78 it’s difficult to justify the price. We found these highly rated Lululemon dupes on Amazon that will fit the bill and keep your wallet healthy.
The CRZ Yoga Women's Active Long Sleeve is made with 65 percent Polyamide and 35 percent Polyester, meaning it has less stretch than the Lululemon alternative. Fans don’t seem to mind, though, thanks to the seamless design with a round neck, raglan long sleeves, and much-loved thumbholes.
It’s also made to fit, so size up if you don’t want it too tight — and it has back, underarm and side panels with mesh to help wick away moisture.
Lululemon Dupes: Fitted Jackets
The Lululemon Define Jacket is another must-have for those who exercise outside during the colder months, but it’s steep at $118.
Now you don’t have to sacrifice dollars for comfort, thanks to these jacket dupes we found.
Like others by the brand, the Queenie Ke Slim Fit Jacket is made with sweat-wicking, four-way stretch QKxtreme fabric that is made to be soft and comfortable. It also includes the essential thumbholes, along with fold-older Cuffins finger covers to keep fingers warm without gloves. Also: don't forget to size up.
