Forever 21 Seamless Strappy Sports Bra ($8, originally $13) and Forever 21 Active High-Rise Leggings ($15, originally $25)

“The comfort level of the Active High-Rise Legging pleasantly surprised me. It has a soft, stretchy feel that truly moves with your body. These ribbed leggings are not constricting at all. In fact, it delivers plenty of flexibility and is definitely ideal for a wide range of activities. These are great for low- to medium-impact workouts, like yoga, Pilates, light resistance work, and even a hot-girl walk. However, these are so comfortable that I end up wearing them while lounging around, too. The sizing on the site is a little bit confusing; I’m usually a size four or six, but Forever 21’s size guide classifies sizes three to five as small and sizes seven to nine as medium. So, as someone who is 5’1″ and has a 27-28 waist, I ended up going with a medium, and it’s a perfect fit. These leggings are very versatile, and I can’t wait to stock up on more — I just wish they had more colors (right now, the set only comes in one colorway)!

The Seamless Strappy Sports Bra is such a cute piece to wear out and about; however, as someone with a larger bust area, I felt that it wasn’t as supportive as other sports bras I’ve tried and have come to wear on the regular. I found that I would need to wear a bra underneath to deliver the support I need for a medium-impact workout. As a size 32DD, I went with a medium, and it has a decent fit that didn’t feel too constricting. I would definitely wear this for lower-impact workouts like yoga, Pilates, or any form of stretching, or wear it around the home.” — Anvita Reddy, assistant editor, Commerce
