I Tested The Best Lululemon Look Alikes on Amazon: Here Are My Favorites

By: Chris Freytag, CPT // June 22, 2023

Have no fear, as a fitness expert and an avid shopper, I have done my homework and I have tested the best Lululemon look alikes that Amazon has to offer.   

I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 30 years working as a Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor and Health Coach. And I will admit I became a Lululemon fan even before Lululemon became all the rage.

Their leggings and other apparel have amassed a very large fan base over the last two decades. But here’s the problem for their large fan base: it’s expensive. 

Yes, it’s fun to feel stylish and trendy in your athletic clothes, but is it worth spending lots of money for apparel that you are just going to sweat in? 

Here’s the good news, I will share with you all of the Lululemon look-alikes that I have found on Amazon and how they hold up (like our favorite Lululemon align tank). I have test driven these brands and these items.

I have sweat in them, traveled in them and worn them as everyday fashion. And I have all the details for you.

Let me help you save some money while finding you the best and most fashionable athletic wear styles for a fraction of the cost. It’s the old “have your cake and eat it too” concept so “shop the looks” below. 

Use the links below to quickly navigate this guide:

Amazon Find for the Lululemon Scuba Quarter Zip

Here is the criteria I have used to rate these brands and items:

  1. Price 
  2. Fabric and manufacturing quality (compared to Lululemon) 
  3. Style and fit (compared to Lululemon) 
  4. Overall satisfaction (I’m a tough customer)

All of the pieces I am going to suggest, I have washed all items many times (except the belt bag) and everything has held up to my standards in terms of quality, fabric and color.

Note: I do hang all of my workout clothes. I do not put them in the dryer.

    Lululemon Amazon Look-Alikes: Bottoms

    Colorfulkoala Women’s Buttery Soft High-Waisted Yoga Pants 

    Black camo leggings
    These are the 7/8 leggings WITH pockets

    These are the same feel and fit of the Lululemon Align Leggings. As a matter of fact, these might be the best leggings on Amazon in my opinion.

    The fabric feels soft with decent compression and holds up. Mine have not pilled or faded. And they are the best squat-proof leggings I’ve found.

    I have personally sweat in them many times and washed them probably 50 times. Colorfulkoala leggings are highly rated by others also and deemed the best Lululemon Align Leggings look-alike.

    If you love great leggings for less, check out my review of the best 29 leggings on Amazon.

    CRZ Yoga Women’s High-Waisted Butterluxe Leggings

    Black CRZ leggings

    These mimic the Lululemon Align leggings and they are very similar in fabric to the ColorfulKoala. I have them in 3 colors, but there are lots to choose from.

    They pass the squat test and feel like butter. CRZ Butterluxe leggings also have a slight compression and wash well.

    Another bonus is that the waistband does not over-hug the belly area! Great quality for a fraction of the price of Lululemon.

    The Gym People Women’s Lightweight Joggers (with pockets)

    A popular item in the Lululemon jogger category is the Lululemon Align joggers. I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan: I feel like they give you a wedgie.

    I had to return them after I bought them because I was self-conscious.

    The Gym People joggers are better than the Lululemon Align Joggers in my opinion. I have them in two different colors (black and grey), and I wear them for workouts as well as everyday casual.

    More often than not I wear them as an everyday casual look and they are a staple when I travel.

    BMJL Women’s High Waisted Running Shorts

    Chris Freytag wearing a white tank top and tan colored shorts. Holding up 3 other pairs of shorts (black, grey, and white) in front of the entry way!

    I am in love with these; I have them in 5 colors! These shorts look and fit just like the Lululemon Track That short.

    They have the thick elastic waistband, loose on the booty and good length of inseam (especially for us gals over 50). In addition, these shorts have a side pocket that’s big enough to fit your phone or other belongings.

    I wear these shorts for walking, workouts, pickleball, casual wear, and lounging at home. The little bit of stretch is awesome and they look great with a cropped top because of the thicker waist band.

    Very flattering to the waist.

    CRZ YOGA Women’s Lightweight Mid-Rise Athletic Workout Shorts

    Chris Freytag wearing blue shorts with a black athletic tank top!

    These CRZ Yoga shorts wear and fit like the Lululemon Speed Up Short. They are mid-rise, have good inseam length, and are made of a great wicking fabric.

    I love the comfortable liner and the zipper pocket on the waistband. I like these with my longer tanks and have 6 colors of these amazing shorts.

    CRZ YOGA Women’s High Waisted Athletic Skirt

    Chris wearing a white tank top and a pink skirt in front of a front entry way!

    This skirt is just like the Lululemon Pace Rival Mid-Rise Skirt. I love a skirt for pickleball, walking, and everyday fun. Lots of women wear it for golf and tennis too.

    It has a waistband back zipper pocket & two side pockets hidden on the inner biker shorts, enough room to store your items, like a tennis or pickleball.

    The leg grip is perfect, not too tight. I have this in 4 colors.

    CRZ YOGA Women’s Naked Feeling Biker Shorts

    Two individuals modeling black biker shorts. Chris Freytag wearing a pink tank top and black bikers. Sam Cameranesi wearing a black t-shirt and biker shorts.
    Me – wearing the 6 ” and Trainer Sam Cameranesi wearing the 4″

    These are my go-to short instead of the Lululemon Align Biker Shorts. They come in 4”/ 5”/ 6”/ 8”/ 10” inseams.

    I have the 6-inch inseam and it’s perfect for me at 5’5”.  Another GHU team member, Sam, likes the 4 -inch inseam (pictured left).

    They have a stash pocket and are buttery soft. And high-waisted shorts are my favorite.

    Lululemon Amazon Look-Alike: Tops

    Queenieke Women’s Slim Fit Jacket

    Chris Freytag wearing a full zip grey jacket with black leggings. Posing in the front entry way.

    This jacket feels and looks like the Lululemon Define Jacket. I actually like it better and I have it in 3 colors.

    The sleeves are not as long as the Lululemon sleeves which are ridiculously long. It fits just like the Define jacket, giving you a nice waist silhouette.

    And a bonus is the thumb holes.

    I wear it for walking, but I also wear it for fashion to and from the gym and even to run errands. It’s totally completes the athleisure look.

    CRZ Yoga Women’s Strappy Sports Bra

    Chris Freytag wearing a grey strappy sports bra and black leggings in front of a white wall.

    This bra is the true match to the Lululemon Energy Bra.

    The Energy bra has always been my favorite bra because it gives good support compared to other strappy bras but it’s pricey which is why I was so happy to find this Lululemon look alike at a fraction of the cost.

    It’s great quality and has lots of colors but in particular, check out the faux leather fabric. I have it in the nude and black faux leather look.

    This is by far my favorite sports bra: the buttery soft fabric is fabulous.

    The Gym People Women’s Long Line Sports Bra

    Chris Freytag wearing a pink tank top with black leggings modeling the outfit in front of a front doorway.

    We have found the best Lululemon Align tank look-alike on Amazon. It’s super highly rated, great for medium and high-impact activities and the sweat-wicking fabric is amazing.

    You can also remove the bra cups.

    It’s the perfect length if you like a little crop and it comes in a ton of colors (I have 2). Amazon for the win with this Lululemon align tank look-alike!

    CRZ Yoga Women’s Lightweight Racerback Tank Top

    Blue athletic tank top with camo black leggings

    This is the Lululemon Train To Be Tank look-alike. It has a high neck, which is my favorite style when it comes to workout tops and it’s a loose fit so it doesn’t hug the muffin top.

    The fabric is soft but also sweat-wicking.

    I’ve actually worn this with jeans, but I work out in it a lot. I have 3 colors; but hope they add some brighter colors soon. 

    LASLULU Womens Fleece Lined ½ Zip Hoodie

    I now like this sweatshirt better than my Lululemon Scuba ½ Zip Hoodie. It’s become my favorite of all time and I actually like it better than the Lulu version because the fabric is softer and less stiff.

    The Lulu one makes me look a little too much like a football player.

    This sweatshirt is cropped a bit so if you want to make it look longer, then you’ll want to wear a longer tank underneath. I’m in love and already have 4 colors.

    CRZ YOGA Women’s Athletic Long Sleeve Shirt 

    Girl modeling a red long sleeve athletic top and black leggings.

    This is a Lululemon Swiftly Long Sleeve Shirt look-alike. It has a nice flattering fit that is excellent for yoga, running, walking, or just to and from the gym.

    This long sleeve top is sweat-wicking if you want to wear it for that. I wear it under vests and on cooler days.

    If you like a looser fit long sleeve – you’ll want to try this one!

    OVILUP Women’s Fleece Belt Bag Sherpa Fanny Pack

    The Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag is a fan favorite. This bag has become cult-like amongst young people. However, this bag is just like it for half the price!

    And by the way, this bag is for all ages – I wear mine all the time! The over-one-shoulder look is my favorite, but I also wear it like a fanny pack.

    Sherpa is super in right now and these are identical to the Lululemon bag, but a better price tag.

    Lululemon Amazon Look-Alike: Men’s Clothes

    CRZ Yoga Men’s Stretch Golf Pants

    Green men's golf pants.

    These fit and look like the Lululemon ABC pants. They look great in both a casual and professional setting. These pants are breathable, sweat-wicking, and have 4-way stretch fabric for comfort and mobility.

    They are a straight leg pant that sits below the waist with a hidden zipper pocket to fit credit cards or keys.

    My husband and boys love them for golf, and also wear them with a sport coat to work.

    CRZ YOGA Men’s Linerless Workout Shorts

    Men with hands in pocket of a black short.

    My boys and husband say these CRZ Yoga shorts are the Lululemon T.H.E. Linerless Short look-alikes.

    These shorts are lightweight for working out or can work for everyday.

    Good size pockets and wide waistband with drawstring. Breathable fabric in both 7”/9” inseams. 

    CRZ YOGA Men’s Workout Short Sleeve T-Shirt

    Man modeling a grey athletic t-shirt.

    This is the Amazon version for the Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt. This CRZ Yoga workout shirt is loose-fitting, stretchy, and quick-drying. 

    CRZ Yoga Men’s Short Sleeve, Golf Polo Shirt

    Man modeling a grey/ blue golf polo.

    My husband and boys have loved the Lululemon stretch polo golf shirts for years and now this has become their favorite.

    It’s soft, breathable, has sweat-wicking fabric and fits the same as Lululemon but the price tag is way better!!
