Discover the best athleisure for all of US, as we are. We design every piece in 22 sizes, wear-test them for quality (ease of fit and durability of fabric), and deliver on your wants and needs. Don’t just take it from US. There are plenty of five-star reviews to read. We’re here to answer all of your questions, too.
What exactly is athleisure wear?
Imagine supremely soft, stretchy garments you can wear to the gym or meet your girlfriends. These all-activity pieces are perfect for low-impact exercise or simply laying low—they’ll offer support without compression or restriction. Practical but still pretty cute (not your dad’s Adidas or old baggy sweatpants) so you can look picture-perfect in mountain top hiking shots and selfies enjoying the great indoors.
Why buy athleisure wear from Universal Standard?
Whether you’re looking for sporty separates or a matching set, we have the must-have tops, bottoms, hoodies & jackets to build your best outfits. We design with layering and styling in mind. Dreaming of the ideal bodysuits? We have those, too. From cropped tops to leggings to body shorts, find the styles you’ll soon live in every day. Want what everyone else is wearing? Our Next-to-Naked styles are best sellers (we can’t keep them in stock). Secure your size in our fan-favorite bodysuit, legging, and bike shorts before they’re gone again. Once you feel the signature fabric, you’ll understand why these styles sell out.
Is athleisure wear the same thing as activewear?
You can certainly wear both similarly. It depends on the activity! We think of activewear as permanent fixtures in your workout rotation—durable, dependable sportswear styles for any adventure or action that gets your heart beating fast. Think go-to workout clothes. Athleisure means that cozy piece (maybe with a kangaroo pocket or a drawstring) that you pull over your gym go-to's and the soft and fuzzy essential you reach for when you need to feel comfy running errands or want to snuggle up after a long day. It’s your coziest loungewear that can also handle a few laps here and there. Think of activewear as adrenaline and athleisure as dopamine. Similar but different. We love both.
Where and why should athleisure wear be worn?
Anywhere and everywhere! Ok, not formal events or the office (except some cute tops under jackets, like our Next-to-Naked Tank, of course) but almost everywhere else. Our athleisure styles really shine in the summertime. They’re light, breathable, and flexible. Some are sweat-wicking and antimicrobial, so they’ll keep you comfortable and dry on those hot and humid days. Unparalleled comfort makes each piece easy to put on and near impossible to take off. So, we understand if you decide to live in our athleisure wear. It’s even better than being naked.
What sets athleisure wear from US apart?
Well, the sets. We’re talking about matching separates, not reps of heavy lifting—though these pieces work hard. Many work perfectly together, and sometimes you’ll find them discounted (20% off) if you purchase them together in our styled outfits. You can also mix and match as you wish. High-rise leggings are often designed with cropped tops of the same fabric, and we even have activewear jackets to match our bike shorts and leggings. Our bottoms are best sellers. They aren’t just your average yoga pants. We love a high waist with a wide band, flat and subtle side pockets, and fabrics that are soft, stretchy, and lightweight. We use several signature blends, but our favorites are the antimicrobial, moisture-wicking styles and new AirKnit tops that feel like, well, air. Oh, and every single style is available in every single size. That’s 00 to 40. Yeah, there’s that. We’re not sure other athleisure brands can say that.
