Best Athleta Clothing Items

Athleta, one of the premier brands in women's fitness apparel, has so many great choices it's difficult to pick the best. I tried to narrow down the best based on fit, use and price. Check out the list below.

The Top Ten

1 Relay Capri

Flattering fit. High quality. Material is holding up and hasn't stretched with wear or wash like many other brands. Perfect midcalf length. Versatile - great for yoga, gym, running. It stays in place - doesn't slip down or ride up - which is important to me.

2 Bettona Boyfriend Pant

I live in these. Comfortable, soft pants that are a definite step up from roaming the town in sweat pants. They are ideal for travel and outdoor/active wear. I like that I can take them from the market to the crag or trail. The drawstring bottom cinch these into capris which is awesome.

3 Bettona Straight Edition

Slim-straight leg cut for a SUPER trim fit. Comfortable fit makes them a perfect choice for travel, and the pockets are actually deep enough to utilize for carrying a phone. Love the Bettona for strolling around town and then dropping in on a yoga class without the hassle of changing. I love how cute boots slip over these, but they look great with little flats as well.

4 PliƩ Tight

Like all Athleta tights I have tried on, these are fitted and flattering. A high-quality tight, they offer good compression and haven't stretched out. I am in love with the cuffs, which can be scrunched or worn over the heels. Such a unique touch.

5 Sweet Retreat Tee

Another style I love. I can see myself draping the hood over my head on the plane to sleep while we travel. I love draping, cozy tees. I find myself wishing I had more like this to throw over tanks or bras around the house but also out and about. I think this would be perfect for pre/post gym or yoga wear, but also look casual and effortlessly classy with jeans.

6 La Viva Pant

These are a pair I've really eyed. People who love the Bettona pants say they chose to try these as a more "fashiony" pair. They look amazingly comfortable - people say they are soft, silky, light - and great for every day wear. The cinchable hem lets you customize look and length, which is great for fashion effect but also seems awesome for biking. I think these would be perfect for travel adventures.

7 Zig Zag Relay Capri

Since I love the regular Relay Capri, I'm sure these are a win. I like the statement capris and the zig zag is pretty fun for the gym or yoga.

8 Chaturanga Capri

This is one I've wanted to try out. I'm sure it's high quality like the Relay. It comes in funky colors and patterns. People seem to say the fit is flattering and comfortable and it's a great summer capri.

9 Colorblock Swim Tight

A F=friend bought these and is thrilled with them. She loves the fit and says they will be perfect for swimming and playing with the kids at the lake.

10 Dive in Medley Tankini

This is the swimming suit that won me over on Athleta swimwear. The quality impressed me right away. I can tell it will last for a long time, unlike other suits which stretch out quickly. The fit is flattering and sporty. It's my go-to for lap swimming.
