Ok, let’s be honest here. Women buy workout clothes for three reasons and three reasons only:
1. To look good
2. To feel good
3. And, lastly, to work out in
As I’ve mentioned before, I am no fitness junkie. In fact, I am closer to being a rocket scientist than I am a fitness junkie, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need quality fitness clothing. That simply means I’m not going to spend $100 on one pair of leggings. To be completely honest, I don’t care who you are or how much money you have, I personally don’t think anyone should ever spend that much money on a pair of leggings. But hey, to each her own. If you’re reading this, however, I suspect that we’re on the same page. Lululemon, we do not stan. Sorry, not sorry. Quality and affordability are everything, brand names are not. With that said, here are some ideas for workout clothes or “Lululemon dupes.” They will make you feel good, look good, and they all can be worn while working out.
If you are a woman who was born in the ’90s, chances are, you owned at least one pair of the iconic “Nike Fit” shorts. In middle school, these shorts had a direct impact on your social status, so it was imperative that you had them. I personally had enough pairs to supply an entire village, which, embarrassingly enough, still haunt me to this day. Needless to say, my athletic shorts collection has been in desperate need of an upgrade for quite some time now.
Now, to say I am rather picky about my clothing would be a vast understatement, but when I find something I love, I really love it. Which brings me to these shorts: The Blooming Jelly Women’s Quick-Dry Running Shorts. These are hands down, without a doubt, my absolute favorite pair of athletic shorts that I have ever owned. Having grown up as an athlete, that says a lot about these shorts. I mean seriously, I never want to take them off my body. They’re comfortable, they look great, they fit perfectly, and they come in 11 different colors. Most of which I will shortly be the proud owner of, so you better get them now before I single-handedly clear out their inventory.
As the #1 best seller in Women’s Sports Bras on Amazon, with over 32,000 reviews and a 4.6-star rating, you already know this top is a winner. If a Lululemon dupe is what you’re looking for, then here you have it. The material is soft and comfortable, and the fit is snug and flattering. I personally like that it’s padded, as it provides me with the perfect amount of support; but the pads can be removed if you wish. This versatile crop-top has inevitably become a staple in my closet, and with summer right around the corner, it will most likely be one of the only items I wear. With 19 different colors, you can literally get the perfect one to match your every mood. From the gym to the mall, this cropped tank top will not let you down.
If spaghetti straps aren’t your thing, or if you’re like me and want some variation in your fitness wardrobe, then this is the top for you. This padded cropped tank top is a best seller on Amazon that fits great, feels great, and most importantly, looks great. Again, these pads can be removed if you wish to do so, but they do provide just the right amount of support otherwise. Obviously this is another versatile piece that is perfect for the gym or for lounging around in. It comes in six different colors.
These are the #1 best seller in Women’s Yoga Pants on Amazon for a reason, but as always, it’s my job to be completely honest with you guys. The second I pulled these leggings out of the package, I fell in love with just the mere touch of them. Then came the whole “trying on” part, and, well, I got the short end of the stick on this one. The leggings felt amazing on my body, and honestly they didn’t look so bad either. That is, except for the ungodly cameltoe they gave me, which I can only blame on my annoying, disproportionate petite frame. The good news, however, is that the majority of you guys won’t have to worry about that problem. I ended up just giving them to my sister. Not only does she love them, but they fit her perfectly. Even though these leggings didn’t quite work for me, I still give them my blessing.
If you couldn’t already tell by now, I’m all about versatility. I’m also all about buying products that actually fit. Coming from someone with a pea-sized head, headbands that fit are nearly impossible to come by. Honestly, ordering this set of headbands was a shot in the dark for me, so I was fully prepared to be disappointed. But, to my very unexpected surprise, they actually fit, and I am slightly obsessed. These are the softest headbands I’ve ever owned, and they’re great for working out in or accessorizing with your outfits. They’re “tiny head-proof,” and since they are made with spandex, they will fit any sized head. If you aren’t crazy about the tie-dye, no worries. There are 11 other sets with different patterns and colors to choose from.
As you can see, good quality workout clothes do exist at affordable prices. So maybe it’s best to think twice before dropping an unnecessary fortune. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.

This Rubber Beach Bag Gives You The Space You Need
School is out, the tide is in, and summer 2022 is a-go. Though the beach was one of those places you could still travel to even at the height of COVID restrictions, the repeal of mask mandates and negative testing requirements sure make the whole experience much more appealing.
Of course, going to the beach for the first time in years likely means you are in need of supplies. If that is the case, you came to the right place. In recent weeks, We Know Products has written about a variety of beach gear, including a beach table, vacuum-insulated margarita tumblers, and an American flag beach umbrella. Here is another one to add to the list: rubber tote bags.
Now, longtime WKP readers know we are partial to the clear tote bags with U.S. flag patches. But we have also heard from fans who say they like the Expersion totes for going to games and concerts, but that they also want something a little more spacious for beach trips. This rubber tote fits the bill.
As you can see from the item’s title, this bag is literally “oversized,” so you will have zero problem fitting in everything you need to haul down from your hotel room to the shore.
