Lululemon has a reputation that’s hard to match. Known worldwide for its upscale yoga and athletic apparel, the company has built a strong brand around community, positivity, and a dedication to an active lifestyle. However, the premium price tags attached to their products may not be feasible for everyone. As a result, Lululemon dupe websites, Instagram accounts, and TikTok pages are everywhere. Lululemon’s Align Leggings are one of its best sellers, and rightly so. We’re happy to report there are plenty of the best Lululemon Align Leggings dupes that are equally as cozy without breaking the bank.

Yoga pants aren’t just for yoga anymore. People wear them while running errands, to work, and even to PTA meetings. If you still sport them for yoga, here’s some encouraging news: adding just 15 minutes of yoga to your exercise routine can significantly enhance heart health. A study reveals that the discipline, which originated in ancient India, is much more than just muscle stretching. Researchers in Canada found that yoga can lower blood pressure, resting heart rate, and improve a person’s 10-year cardiovascular risk. So, whether you’re donning yoga pants for errands, school functions, or actual yoga sessions, you’re making a stylish and health-conscious choice.

When shopping for clothes, it’s important to choose brands that you know you will actually get a lot of wear out of. Considering the average person has nearly $300 worth of clothes collecting dust in their closet, making splurge purchases on items that are just going to take up space is not what you want to do. That’s why looking into dupes for expensive brands can give you the same look without being a wasted expense.

If you are looking to purchase a Lululemon dupe, we applaud your choice to stay on a budget. We’ve put together this list of the top five best Lululemon Align Legging dupes that look just as fabulous. Don’t see your favorite off-brand on the list? Don’t be bashful, let us know in the comments below.

The List: Best Lululemon Align Leggings Dupes, According to Experts

 

1. CRZ Yoga Naked Feeling Leggings

These Lululemon dupes get a “10” looks-wise from the fashion editor at The Every Girl. The fit and feel was spot on as well. “After taking these for several runs, I can say that these absolutely pass the test. While they’re a bit thinner than Aligns, I had absolutely no issues with them slipping, and they hugged me in the right places without being too constricting. They have a seamless effect that makes them look eons more expensive than they are, and I found that when I had just done laundry and all of my leggings were clean, these were the ones I reached for first (which is how you really know).”

Cosmopolitan writes, “These popular, durable, and affordable leggings are a whole lot like the brand’s famous Align leggings’ medium-hold Nulu material, which reviewers rave keeps its shape, won’t pill, and dries quickly.”

“We’ve put the Naked Feeling Yoga Pants to the test and were left in awe at the similarities they share with Lululemon’s Align leggings,” says the reviewers at Stylecaster. “Their medium-compression fabric feels just like Lulu’s Nulu fabric. They’re super comfy, made to last (no pilling after washing) and quick to dry. You don’t have to worry about sweating profusely while exercising or accidentally ripping them from going a little too hard during your workout.”

2. Yogalicious High Waist Ultra Soft Lightweight Leggings

Shape calls these “the dupes you’ve been holding out for.”  The website loves the buttery-soft, compressive fabric that “fits like a second skin.” In addition, the “high waste won’t budge during your workout” and the leggings are not see-through.

Not only do they have that same buttery texture that Lululemon’s Align line boasts, says College Fashionista. “But they are also much cheaper than the originals, so you don’t feel so bad having a wide array of colors. You are also able to buy these leggings in packs, so if you’re like me, you can easily have at least five black pairs of leggings on deck!”

Who What Wear shouts, “I love these leggings. Very smooth, soft, and comfortable. Thick and not see-through.”

3. Colorfulkoala High Waisted 7/8 Length Leggings with Pockets

“Shoppers say Colorfulkoala’s leggings are the closest thing you’ll find to Lululemon’s Align leggings, and they’re 100 percent right,” according to Stylecaster. “They have a seamless waistband, provide medium compression, can endure many washes without issue, and stay in place during exercise. The nylon-spandex material is also super soft and feels similar to Lulu’s Aligns.”

Very Well Fit says, “The soft, lightweight fabric delivers the ideal balance of elasticity and hold, for a secure fit. The seamless, double-lined waistband stays in place whether you’re working out or chilling out, and we like the flattering V-seam in the back.”

Get Healthy You believes “these might be the best leggings on Amazon.  They are highly rated and the website says, “The fabric feels soft with decent compression and holds up. Mine have not pilled or faded. And they are the best squat-proof leggings I’ve found.”

4. Old Navy Yoga High-Waist PowerSoft Hidden Pocket Leggings

Old Navy is known for its affordable, high-quality athletic wear and fashionistas agree. “These Lululemon Align leggings dupes are also the top-rated leggings,” says the website Sonia Begonia. “With breathable and stretchy fabric, it is perfect for working out or lounging at home. I personally have a few pairs, and love them!”

What The Fab states there are, “One of the best Lululemon dupes I’ve come across. I love the buttery soft feel of these Hidden-Pocket Leggings and their conveniently hidden pocket that stores anything from a phone to IDs and credit cards.”

“The internet is obsessed with these leggings,” says Seventeen. “They have almost 4,000 five-star reviews, and right now, you can shop them in plus and straight sizes. One reviewer wrote ‘I got the neon pink pair and they’re so fun and comfy… with POCKETS! It feels like I’m wearing nothing, but they’re not see-through at all.'”

5. Sunzel Workout Leggings

Talk about stunning reviews, one customer told Prevention, “I bought these because a friend told me they were similar to Lulu aligns and I’m all about dupes. Ladies, they are EXACTLY like the aligns but better because they are a fraction of the price.”

Teen Vogue calls these leggings “buttery soft.” According to one customer review, “I’m a tried and true Lululemon girl, but their Align leggings aren’t the same anymore. I like these better than the aligns actually. The material is *Chefs Kiss* I would say they’re a blend of aligns and the P’tula Myra legging if you’re familiar with that brand. I usually wear a six, or medium in any legging and I ordered an M in these.”

“Thanks to the 4-way stretch on these women’s workout pants, you’ll be able to lift weights and do squats without the worry of the pants slipping down,” according to Don’t Waste Your Money. “The leggings offer tummy control and are nice and lightweight. They also have that buttery-soft feel for maximum comfort.”
