16 Cool Workout Tops & Bottoms That Aren't Tight

Workout gear is becoming just as cute as regular clothes these days, what with all the stylish mesh leggings and funky sports bras, but the only downside is that most of styles are really tight. That why I hunted down the best workout clothes that aren’t tight for days when I’m just not in the mood to do the wiggle-dance-squeeze into tight leggings. There are even days when a fitted tank top is the last thing I want to put on my body.

For every day I find myself doing jump squats in my favorite cosmic-print leggings, there’s a day I’d like to have a loose tunic that covers my butt to do my barre stretches in. It’s about options, folks! And luckily, there are a lot. From cool open back workout tunics that let you show off your favorite sports bra, to flowy harem pants that would be perfect for a yoga sesh, cute workout clothes that aren’t tight do exist. If tight-fitting workout clothes are just not your thing, here’s a round-up of my favorite loose-fitting workout clothes for your next sweat sesh.
