We once thought workout sets were reserved for the celebs and influencers in our Instagram feed. But now, matching leggings and bras have gone fully mainstream. Seriously, half our yoga class was wearing one on Monday. And we can see why: A matching workout outfit actually helps us get in the mood to do downward facing dog (or burpees!). So get rid of your ratty college T-shirts and ripped shorts and upgrade to one of the 24 best workout sets that are both cute and comfortable.

This set from fashion-forward workout wear experts Bandier has a scoop neck bra top that has a supportive bust and sleeves along with a corset detail and airy mesh detail on the rib cage, while the high-waisted leggings are sweat-wicking. And good news for fans of matching sets: While you can buy the top and leggings separately, there's a discount when purchasing them as a duo.
Made of post-consumer recycled plastic with 16 percent spandex added, this supersoft set includes a top with removable padding and a reinforced band. The shorts have a flattering crossover waistband, side pockets and a ruched backside detail.
Lightweight mesh in corset-style panels makes this a cute top for everyday wear (we love it under a loose jacket) as well as a workout essential. The high-waist leggings have a wide waist band that lifts, sculpts and contours while it dependably stays in place.
Comfort is number one when you opt for a seamless garment, as this highly engineered set demonstrates. The pants have a wide waistband that doesn't cut into your midsection, and the long-sleeve top is cropped for a neat look, with a raglan sleeve that moves with you, no matter how many dips you do. Best of all, it all comes in a flattering ombré pattern.
Soft ribbed jersey and a double-layer waistband make this comfy, while the sweet floral pattern is fashion-forward enough to become daywear when worn with an oversize white button-down shirt.
It's two tops in one, with the leggings' matching lunar rock pattern on one side and a neutral mink hue on the other. Lululemon's buttery Nulu fabric is so weightless, it's perfect for yoga; the crop leggings have a card pocket in the waistband so you can tuck a key or credit card for safekeeping.
Want to enjoy the technical know-how of runners who dress for top performance, but don't want to give up the chance at wearing a cute outfit? Boston-based running apparel outfitters Tracksmith have you covered with this T-shirt and shorts duo that is made of featherweight mesh that lets the air in and your sweat out. The shorts have 1970s-inspired piping, and the slanted band on the T-shirt evokes a traditional runner's sash.
Value-priced (and loved, with 226 five-star ratings on Amazon), this set has an ombré colorway that's trending in athleisure, and is thick enough material to be squat-proof but still cool. Also, the long-line top is nice for days when you don't want to bare too much skin, and it offers ample support in addition to removable pads.
This top's cutout detail makes it look as though it won't keep you from bouncing like crazy, but in fact the racerback, twist-front style offers medium support. We also can't get enough of the gingham print and the super-soft material.
Neon is the new neutral when it comes to workout wear, and this seven-inch bike short and sports bra combination is the look perfected. When you're wearing such an electric color, you want to keep designs simple, classic and versatile.
One staff workout fiend says the longline shape doesn't feel too bare, and this seamless style supports up to a C-cup with sweat-wicking dependability. And the way the top picks up one of the colors in the blue texture print of the pocketed legging? So pretty.
You're hitting the pickleball or tennis courts, so there's going to be lots of start-and-stop movement. These three-inch shorts and loose pullover will keep you warmed-up yet free to really stretch, thanks to lightweight recycled nylon fabrication and a roomy silhouette.
Compressive workout-ready fabric is cut into a fashion silhouette from this affordable fan-favorite brand. The skort has built-in shorts and two side pockets, and the top has a built-in bra with soft wide elastic under the bustline. And both are sustainable—made of 79 percent recycled plastic bottles.
Buy the Skirt ($62)
Available in sizes XXS to 6XL
This set is made of four-way stretch compression ribbed material. The high-waist legging has a sleek side pocket and the top has a medium-high neckline that is suitable for medium- to high-impact workouts. And the spice hue? It's a nice balance between on-trend neutrals and complexion-flattering color.
Buy the Pants ($58)
Available in sizes XS to XL
The light compression fabric is buttery soft and the aurora borealis-esque pattern is super cute. We like that the racerback straps are wide enough that they don't cut into our skin but are still thin enough to be flattering to our shoulder and chest area. The leggings are 7/8 length, so no bagging at the ankles, and they have a handy side pocket.
The tie-top is made of slinky polyamide that's a lightweight layering piece for workouts and casual wear. It picks up the color in the diagonal stripe climbing the high-rise leggings. The four-ways compression stretch fabric, as well as the stripe, are slimming.
Buy the Leggings ($110)
Available in sizes XS, S and L
This is Bandier's best-selling set, and for good reason—the lightweight nylon-spandex fabric has a compression back that makes the tip suitable for high-impact workouts as well as high-heat outdoor summer sweat sessions and indoor heated yoga. Also—the legging calves have cooling mesh panels on the back. P.S.: The top and leggings can also be purchased separately.
The wide straps on the racerback longline bra are a nice break from skinny strapped tops, which can cut into your shoulders and back, and the compressive poly-spandex blend leggings are constructed with flat seams for additional comfort.
This top has an innovative design, since it's supportive (and covered up enough) in the front to suit C/D cupped women, but has an open back that's made of soft straps. The flare-leg pants are made of Lululemon's buttery Nulu fabric, so they flow right along with your sun salutation, and stay in place no matter what crazy twists you attempt in class.
A stretchy twist-front top and high-rise shorts with ruching are rugged enough to do a full beach workout in, yet still cute enough to hang out afterward for brunch. Bonus: The high rounded neckline keeps your chest covered long after you've sweated off your SPF.
We appreciate that this bra top comes in a A to C fit as well as D to DD sizing, so you can have just the right amount of support for your barre class. And the kicky crop flares are cute enough to wear running errands after class.
Removable padded cups and a web of fetching straps in the back make this sports bra actually pretty—and in basic black, it's a sports wardrobe hero item. The board shorts have wide leg openings for unhindered movement and are featherweight and fast-drying.
Available in sizes Medium to X-Large
Shorts: $11 at Amazon
Available in sizes XX-Small to X-Large
