affordable (CHEAP) workout clothes

hey, can anyone recommend any brands/stores/online merchants to offer affordable, comfortable workout clothes that still look good? i can't afford $50 for a pair of pants . . .(because i need at least 3 or 4 new pairs) but i'm also tired of the crap i stuff i find at walmart (affordable but hard to find quality fabric and fit) or other stores that have "sales". i fnd i workout much harder if i feel good in my clothes! please help!

That's where I get some of my stuff, otherwise I shop the sales racks at Dick's. The quality of Target pieces is pretty good, I even get my sports bras there. They're very supportive for my 36C size. Hope you have one near you to check out, otherwise you can look on line too.

Target does have alot of cute workout clothes. There seems to be more of a selection of quality clothes. Good luck in finding what you are looking for.

I don't know if you have them there but I like the brands/quality at Kohls. I also find decent prices at JC Pennys and Target. The other thing you can do is shop ebay. Good prices but you can't do a try-on and thats risky.

TJ Maxx and Marshalls clearance sections are where I buy all my workout clothes.

I don't know if there is one where you are, but try Ross Dress For Less (google them to see if there's a store near you- they're in 27 states)

They're a discount store, a bit like daffy's only less nice-looking and therefore they offer Brand Name clothing for very cheap prices. I can always get Nike tops for $5 there, or a tennis skirt for $5. They do a large selection of sizes too. And they also do cheap athletic socks (always a necessity).

Try campmor

They have some decent quality clothing (for hiking & athletics)
Some for really inexpensive-- I got some wicking shirts for $10 a piece)...

Another place to look is REI--they also sell camping / exercise clothes-- I look at their discount site online. Here's their main site.

I sometimes find stuff at Kohles. If you have one in your area, check them out. I like their sports bras and work out pants. Target is good too, depending on what you are looking for.
