Where's your favorite place to buy workout clothes and sports bras? I love the C9 by Champion brand at target but then tend to run a little pricey..

Target has pricey clothes?! You should try Lululemon, lol

Seriously though, Champion is good! And you are worth it!

I love the Champion line at Target! They're actually quite a good price compared to everywhere else I've noticed. I've also picked up a few things on clearance at Kohl's. Tekgear I think is the brand. And Old Navy!

I get my sports bras from Sierra Trading Post (online). They have name brand stuff for good prices. Last one I got was a Brooks sports bra for $20.

Does anyone else notice that exercise clothing stains easily and the stains are extra stubborn? I'm not talking pit stains. I'm talking...well, I don't know what gets on my shirts but it drives me bonkers.

I like Lands End and Athleta for their workout clothes. But my sportsbra I got off Amazon, it's the Champion seamless racerback sports bra- I love that the straps don't slip down my shoulders, and the support is great.

Do you work out at a gym? If you do, it's possible you rub up against something maybe an oil or grease that is on a machine.

I go kinda everywhere in the gym and have noticed I get quite dirty. I'm always seeing employees cleaning, but I guess the place is just so busy it's hard to keep up.

Besides sports bra's--I really don't care what I look like--so I buy on the cheap. As long as it's comfortable-and airy--I am fine with it.

I did buy some expensive sports bras--and my shoes I order from Ryka. Those are my two most important items.

I'm a cheap person too, I get mostly everything from walmart unless I see something decently priced somewhere else. I've found I like working out in yoga pants. I used to prefer shorts, but with all of this pregnancy weight, pants are definitely the way to go!

I buy my tshirts from target. I find the Champion really last well, but I usually buy them on sale. Well I just actually felt I needed to look at little more with the times in August when I joined this one gym, and it just happened to coincide with a lot of sales at Target. Every time I go in, I check to see if they are having another sale. I won't pay more than $8 a shirt.

Marshall's or TJ Maxx are great places for nice workout clothes at very reasonable prices, too.

I love the Target Champion brand. Kosh's also has some really good clothes that are overpriced for a cheapie like me, but you can get them on sale for great prices. Actually though, I have had excellent luck with the Danskin brand at Walmart!!

I went to Just My Size online to get a plus sized sports bra and am very happy with it. Also picked up a Champion brand shirt from that site and as others have said Champion is a good line.

Added note: As of 05-07-14 the Champion website has a sale of buy one get one half off - I just ordered a couple more and figured I'd share. They have sizes up to 4X.

Default For any Canadians in the house

I used to work at La Senza so I have a huge stack of sports bras (from when they used to carry them) but because they were getting a little, er, old... I figured I'd go shopping. I haven't tried the ones at Old Navy but they're a great price at about 18$ and look half decent. The real treasure though, are the $12.00 ones I found at Joe Fresh (in any Real Canadian Superstore). At first, they looked dubious - but my are they comfy! Just a simple plain old sports bra, no special support mechanisms but they do the trick - I'm a 36DD or 38 D and I fit great in a Large somehow.
As for any work out clothes, I get them all from Mark's (formerly Mark's Workwearhouse). The quality is fantastic and the style is comparable to Lululemon (go figure). Hope this helps!
