I'm in need of some new gym clothes and love the new style of a loose fitting top with say a  brightly colour bra/gym top underneath showing through.
I always get so hot in my tight fitting lycra singlets that these dont only look good but make total sense.
So, where do you buys yours from?
Lorna Jane have some gorgeous ones but they are always sold out quickly online and there are no LJ shops near me (rural NSW).
Can anyone recommend any other good brands of gym clothing that can be purchased online?
TIA

I buy all my workout gear online from either wiggle or eastbay.

Have you tried the Lorna Jane angel service?

http://www.lornajane.com.au/contact-us/lj-angel-service

They can locate items you like in stores you can't get to and post them out to you for a small fee (maybe $10?), but this is per order, so you can order heaps of things and just pay the fee once.

Running bare sell online and are excellent quality and great value for money. They also fit well and have quite a few loose tops in bright colours that should be what you described OP.

runningbare.com.au

Sign up to their newsletter as they often have great sales on.

I second lululemon. They are along style of lorna Jane stuff but last better in wash and are all tumble dry able. They also have this inbuilt adjustable hidden support thingy - some extra boob de-bouncers original.gif

They are Canadian so check them out on overseas websites maybe?

If you know what size you are in Lorna Jane there is always heaps of stuff on eBay.

I'm a Lorna Jane addict, but have heard really good things about the Michelle Bridges range that is available in Big W.

Also love the Running Bare clothing - its good to have something different to everyone else in the gym (lots of Lorna Jane around).

Beware the Michelle bridges stuff if a bit smallish and the tops are quite... booby.  Maybe to celebrate her increased bust size unsure.gif

I am really happy with the Michelle Bridges stuff I got from BigW.  Was on sale too so I got a whole outfit for under $30.

lululemon.com.au/

Their main site directs you back to the Aussie site. Just have to watch out for camel toes as the crops have a new gusset shape.

I get all mine from Target. They're really affordable, don't look horrid, and Lorna Jane/LuluLemon, etc. don't come in fatty-boombah sizes. I just bought some grey and pink running shorts that are super comfy, match my shoes, and more importantly, have pockets!
