I’m a Fitness Editor, and I’m Rushing to Add These Lululemon Steals to My Cart ASAP

Prices start at just $9 — and yes, there are plenty of Align leggings to be found.


As a former group fitness trainer and current fitness editor, it’s not an exaggeration to say I live in athleisure. Sports bras and soft pullovers define my personal style, and I’ve yet to meet a pair of leggings I didn’t like. (Work from home perks, am I right?)

When it comes to activewear, Lululemon is, without a doubt, the cream of the crop. The quality of the clothes is just chef’s kiss, and although the pieces can be a bit of an investment, they truly last forever (in fact, I still have and wear a pair of leggings that I got in 2014). Every holiday season, I get dozens of texts from my friends asking which Lululemon pieces they should put on their wish lists — especially once Black Friday steals start to pop up. As someone who’s worn the brand for years and has truly put every item to the test, these are the Lululemon pieces I always recommend and what I’m adding to cart as we speak.

Shop Editor-Loved Lululemon Cyber Monday Picks:

Align High-Rise Pant 25″


It’s simply not a Lululemon guide without mentioning the best-in-class Align leggings. We’ve done the testing (literally, we tested leggings for over 2,400 hours), and every single time, the Aligns won. I reach for these nearly every single day because they feel like a soft hug against my skin. The four-way stretch feels supple and flexible, and the high-rise waistband has never once slipped down on me. These leggings are like a gateway into the rest of Lululemon’s activewear, and for Black Friday, several colors start at just $59. Trust me, this is one purchase you won’t regret.

Softstreme Perfectly Oversized Cropped Crew


Confession: I already own one of these cropped sweatshirts, and I’m using Black Friday to buy myself at least two more colors. Think of this as your basic crewneck sweatshirt but with a glow-up. The slightly cropped fit elevates the look from shapeless to stylish, and the dropped sleeves feel relaxed but not sloppy. But the best part of this Lululemon score is the fabric. The soft, brushed finish feels like peach fuzz, thanks to the brand’s signature Softstreme fabric. I want to wear this every single day, so for the sake of my limited laundry schedule and my budget, I’m taking full advantage of the $79 price tag and buying multiples.

Women’s MacroPillow Tab Running Sock


I went through a sock-testing phase recently (promise, it’s a normal thing when you’re a fitness shopping editor), and to my surprise and delight, Lululemon’s sock game was strong. So strong, in fact, I group-texted my friends a link with, “OMG you have to buy these socks.” Designed for running, these socks come up just high enough to protect my heels from blisters, and they’re ultra-lightweight and breathable. There’s even a touch of compression around the arches for extra support. And with prices as low as $9, you can bet I’ll be stocking up (er, socking up?) as I prepare for spring half-marathon training.

Wunder Puff Super-Cropped Jacket


One thing about me: I am so, so sick of black and gray winter jackets. This year, I’m leaning into the Barbie moment and snagging this hot pink Wunder Puff Super-Cropped Jacket. I’m on the short side, so I love that this jacket won’t overwhelm my small frame (it even features a cinched waist for a fitted shape). Not only will the high neck protect me from Chicago’s incredibly rude winter winds, but the puffer is also water-repellent, windproof, and made with goose down for extra insulation. At just $149 and in such a fun color, I have a hunch this coat will go fast — so I’m checking out with it immediately.

Pace Rival Mid-Rise Skirt Long


I play tennis a few times a week, and this Lululemon skirt is the one I see women wearing most frequently. I love the streamlined fit, which is a nice contrast to the typical flounces and ruffles you see in a lot of tennis skirts. The side drop-in pockets are deep and secure enough for a phone, keys, or tennis ball (whether that tennis ball is for me or my dog on a walk to the park). At only $54, I know I’ll optimize my cost-per-wear on this skirt.

Restfeel Women’s Slides


We’ve come a long way from the striped slide sandals of my high school era. I keep a pair of these Lululemon slides in my gym bag for post-workout showers or to pad to and from the hot tub. After a tough round of tennis or treadmill sprints, they feel like heaven on my feet. Somehow, they strike a balance between cloud-like and firm; I don’t feel like I’m sinking into them by any means, but they’re so soft and plush. One tip: if you’re in between sizes, size up, since there aren’t any half-sizes. With a low $39 price tag, I’ll be adding another pair to my cart to use as house shoes.

Everywhere Belt Bag Large 2L


Listen, I love my classic Everywhere Belt Bag as much as the next basic baddie, but sometimes, a girl just needs a little more room. I frequently try to cram a tennis ball, my Kindle, a snack, my keys, wallet, and earbuds in my crossbody, and this size upgrade will give me the extra space I need. My favorite feature? The outer pocket with a zipper, so I can store my phone close to my body and still grab it quickly (read: whenever my dog strikes a cute pose).

Fast and Free High-Rise Tight 25″


A new pair of running leggings with seven total pockets? Don’t threaten me with a good time. The Fast and Free running tights have a secure high-rise waistband that stays in place on my longer marathon training runs, and the fabric literally feels weightless on my legs. But let’s talk about the pockets: Not only are there two side drop-in pockets for your phone and larger items, but the waistband cleverly hides five smaller pockets for things like gels, a house key, and your ID. At under $90, this is one steal I’ll be running, not walking to buy.
