16 budget-friendly activewear picks from Amazon for your next workout — or not

Athleisure meets affordability with these top-rated Amazon picks.

As it goes for many long-term goals or objectives, if you want something hard enough, you can make it happen. Take the "athleisure" trend, the style movement that was born out of ambitious women who dared to dream about clothing that combined the comfort, stretch and ease of workout attire, without the actual physical activity. Over the last few years, the combination of athletic and leisurewear has since soared — with no signs of slowing down — and options have been seemingly endless, especially when it comes to the selections on Amazon.

From one-and-done hoodie dresses to joggers you can wear to Pilates or brunch, Amazon has a range of easy and relaxed styles to help you look and feel your chicest and comfiest. Whether you're getting a walk in, tapping into your inner couch potato or prepping for something semi-active in between, we rounded up a few of our favorite finds we don't think you'll be able to pass up — starting at just $9.

Top-rated Amazon activewear

FullSoft High Waisted Tummy Control Yoga Pants

If you look at the first words listed on the product name of these leggings, you'll see "buttery soft." That's a detail we can certainly get behind, and Amazon reviewers can too, apparently. 70 percent of shoppers have given the pair a five-star rating, which we're guessing has something to do with the pant's cozy feel and "no see-through" material.
