Lululemon, the effortlessly cool activewear line that made athleisure a trend, may have met their match. Something they’re known for (even more than their amazing Align Pants) are their particularly high prices. I’m not going to start the debate of whether or not the price points are justified, but I will say that there are very similar options out there for just a fraction of the cost.

Check out our comparison of almost identical activewear pieces that will give you all the same style and comfort, but for much less. And they’re all from Amazon!

Keep in mind that prices often fluctuate on Amazon, so the prices listed below are just the average prices we’ve seen for these specific products.

1.) Racerback Tank

Lululemon Cool Racerback $42 vs. 90 Degree by Reflex Racerback $13

We seriously could not tell the difference between these two tanks. They both share the same stretch fabric, same shape, and even the same logo placement. However, it’s crazy not to notice the price difference…

While the Lululemon Cool Racerback tank is a classic, the Amazon option is just under 70% off the luxury competitor price! You’ll see even more of a discount if you buy them in the 2-packs.

2.) Strappy Sports Bra

Some of our favorite items from Lululemon are their super cute sports bras. Not only are the strappy details so fun, but the prints and colors are abundant. That said, paying around $50 each is not our fave, so we were ecstatic when we found tons of options on Amazon just like their Lululemon counterparts — all around 60% less! These are perfect in the summer under loose fitting tanks!

3.) Running Shorts

We found quite a few options for running and lounging shorts to help you beat the summer heat in style. Our finds look similar to Lululemon (even down to the convenient zipper pockets), but they average out to be almost 75% cheaper.

4.) Fitted Jacket

Lululemon Define Jacket $118 vs. 90 Degree by Reflex Full Zip Jacket $29.99

This is by far the most impressive dupe we’ve found for Lululemon activewear. The Lululemon Define Jacket, which rings in at over $100, has tons of style and functionality so it’s no wonder why it’s such a popular item. That said, you can get pretty much the same version for only $30 on Amazon — seriously!

It has the same thumbholes, nearly the same seams, and the same logo placement! The only difference is it’s a whopping $88 cheaper!

An even more similar jacket option is the Queenie Ke Slim Fit Jacket! It has a slightly higher price than the 90 Degree jacket (by only $10 more) but it has the same rounded seams on the front side of the jacket making it almost indistinguishable from Lululemon!

5.) Long Sleeve Running Shirt

Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew $78 vs. LWJ 1982 Long Sleeve Running Shirt $16

Of course, this long sleeve fitted crewneck shirt is cute enough to buy for the style, but did you know that they’re actually sweat wicking and anti-microbial, too? This means they stay dry and won’t stink! While Lululemon may have more color options, the top by LWJ 1982 features similar, breathable fabric and perforated panels but is almost 80% cheaper — that’s a no-brainer to us! 😆

6.) Leggings

Lululemon Align Pant II $98 vs. 90 Degree by Reflex Leggings average price around $23

Now for the product you’ve probably been waiting for — the leggings. It’s no secret that Collin LOVES the Align pant for their buttery soft feel and the comfortable waistband that stays put.

That said, the 90 Degree leggings are quickly becoming a favorite among the Hip2Save team! They feature the same moisture-wicking 4-way stretch material, the high waist tummy control top, and TONS of fun colors! At over 75% less than the Lululemon price, you can stock up without depleting your bank account.

HIP TIP: Worried about not liking the fit of something you buy on Amazon? You may return most new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Amazon within 30 days of delivery for a full refund.

Just when we thought we couldn’t love Amazon any more than we already do, they go and give us a reason to replenish our athleisure wardrobe. At least I’m not stretching my budget! 💃

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.
