Best Affordable Workout Bodysuit
Women's Corset Bodysuit - JoyLab ($34, originally $40)
Target's workout bodysuit is just as affordable as it is cute. This design from Joylab includes a corset design, flattering seaming, and low back for added flair.
What reviewers say: "The fabic feels lightweight and soft against my skin, has held well to wear and most importantly has not lost the color of the garment. True to size, allows movement as you move, squat, and run, easy to dress up or down which makes is piece of article a must have item of clothing to any wardrobe."
Best Workout Romper With Loose Shorts
Not all workout one-pieces are full spandex. The tight top of this romper offers medium support, while the shorts offer more freedom of movement — perfect for a game of pickleballor even just running errands around town.
What reviewers say: "Loved the fabric and the length is perfect. Very comfortable and a stable in my closet now, but seems to run a little on the small size. If you're unsure about sizing, I would recommend sizing up one."
Best Classic Unitard
Get moving in this stretchy one-piece workout bodysuit from Girlfriend Collective. Both the neckline and back feature a scooped design, and it's available in sizes ranging from XXS-6XL. We recommend wearing this piece for low-impact activities like walking or yoga — though it does have a built-in bra for extra support.
What reviewers say: "I am obsessed with throwing on this unitard for workouts, walking, and just lounging around the house. It really sucks you in and is some comfortable. I got a medium and it fits really well in the body - the only place I notice a little looseness is in the straps/front scoop at times. I have a short torso but this doesn't have too much extra fabric in the mid section for me."
Best Long-Sleeved Workout One-Piece
Prefer a little more coverage up top? We totally get it and recommend checking out this long-sleeved onesie, which is still relatively easy to put on despite the long sleeves. A cute back cutout makes sure you don't overheat even with your arms covered. It comes in five colors, but this cheery bright blue is hard to resist.
What reviewers say: "Love this for hanging around the house cleaning or doing some yoga. It fits like a glove!"
Best Workout Bodysuit For Yoga
Athleta Transcend Bodysuit ($80, Previously $129)
When shopping for the perfect workout bodysuit, it's important to find a style that's formfitting but not constricting, stretchy but not too loose, and stylish but still practical. This option checks all of our boxes and is made of lycra material that's so lightweight, it'll feel like you're wearing a second skin.
What reviewers say: "I'm obsessed. I could live in this bodysuit. It's silky smooth, sexy cut, cute back, love the pockets, decent compression but not confining i could seriously live in it. Also I would have never picked this color but it was on sale and I love it! I'm 5'3 curvy athletic 150 lbs and I got a medium. I think I could have gotten a small, bc it does kinda sag on n the crotch after wearing it a bit, but I don't really care bc it's so dang comfy I'm down!"
Best Stomach Cutout Unitard
This full-length unitard from Girlfriend Collective puts a twist on the classic one-piece...literally. The bodice features a unique twisted stomach cutout with a v-neck and scoop back. Plus, it's made from 79% recycled plastic bottles.
What reviewers say: "Fantastic unitard. The feel of the fabric is soft and compressive. The built in bra is supportive and good for low to medium impact. The scoop back is super cute! Highly recommend."
Best Compressive Workout Bodysuit
Any athletes who love the feel of a more compressive fit need to try this Girlfriend Collective option. It comes in a bunch of different colors, but we love this navy blue. The stretchy style is available with either a 28-inch or 23-inch inseam, so you can choose whichever length works best for you.
What reviewers say: "Exactly what I was looking for! I wanted a full bodysuit that didn't have a lot of fuss, which was actually hard to find. This one was perfect with minimal seams and no strange designs. Love! It's so soft and comfy and supportive enough to also run in! Highly recommend!"
Best Flared One-Piece
Free People knows how to do a subtle flare right. This silhouette looks so flattering, with a beautiful low back and lightweight fabric. That said, the soft material is better suited for lounging than the gym, according to reviews. But you could probably get away with a low-impact yoga session, too.
What reviewers say: "I bought this to lounge at home. I am so impressed with the comfort of the material. It washes well, stretches well. I wish there were more colors. I am 5'6, 170lbs and the Medium size fits perfect."
Best Workout Bodysuit With a Low Back
The FP Movement Good Karma collection is a top seller with dozens of hit pieces, and this one-piece workout bodysuit is a particular favorite. Beyond its stretchy and comfortable material, shoppers also love the onesie's compression while maintaining breathability. Wear it with scrunchy socks and sneakers for your next sculpt class. And keep in mind that the material is a tad thin, per reviews, so a bra and underwear are suggested.
What reviewers say: "Great fit. I have it in green, purple and teal. I get so many compliments. They have just the right amount of compression to hold you in and still be breathable. You will def need a bra under. The top is very low cut."
Best Workout Bodysuit With Cutouts
We're loving all the cute cutouts on this workout onesie. Reviews praise this top-rated Free People style for being sexy, statement making, and actually comfortable — the side slits promote ample airflow, so you can stay cool even while you're working up a sweat.
What reviewers say: "I'm a spin instructor and i also do a lot of yoga and pilates and this onesie holds up through it all. i feel like it's true to size, i'm a true medium(6-8) and i feel like it's perfect. i'm short (5'3") and i think the length is perfect if not a little short. if you're taller that might be an issue."
Best Running Workout Onesie
Lululemon SenseKnit Running One-Piece ($99-$119)
This onesie comes with pockets that can hold essentials like your phone, driver's license, or even an emergency workout snack. One POPSUGAR editor detailed how she's been wearing the style "on repeat" in this Lululemon SenseKit Running One-Piece product review.
What Our Editors Say: "This running one-piece is a must for runners of all skill levels. I regret being hesitant about buying it at all because — not to sound corny — it makes me look and feel stronger. And since running is such a mental sport, I'm convinced it's helped me maintain a quick mile pace. Now all I need is a second one because I've been washing and wearing it on repeat." — Marisa Petrarca, contributing editor
Best Maternity Workout Onesie
Spacedye Uplevel Maternity Jumpsuit ($104, Previously $148)
Pregnant people want workout onesies, too, and this one from Beyond Yoga is just about perfect. The thick midsection band stretches forever (like, eight-month-belly forever), and it's full length to prevent any thigh chafing. It also has a built-in shelf bra, shirred sides, and buttery fabric you'll love. Wear it out and about or to keep your belly supported through your prenatal workout routine.
What reviewers say: "I just got this in the mail today and WOW. I wish I would have bought this sooner! I'm 26 weeks and this is the comfiest thing I've put on so far in my pregnancy. The feel is so soft and nothing is too tight, but I feel supported at the same time. Highly recommend for any pregnant woman!"
Best Super-Soft Workout Bodysuit
The Beyond Yoga Spacedye fabric is one of our favorite athletic pieces for working out because it's buttery soft but still thick enough to keep you feeling supported. Test out the material for yourself with this cute jumpsuit.
What reviewers say: "Buttery soft fit, light weight material feels like skin. Not compressive, however has a smoothing effect. The straps are adjustable and gives good support in the chest area. The style is very nice and compliments the body. Size down for a snug fit as the material is stretchy."
Best Lululemon Workout Bodysuit
Lululemon Align Bodysuit ($148)
If you're obsessed with your Lululemon Align leggings, you'll definitely want to add this Align bodysuit to your shopping cart. The one-piece is made of the same plush fabric and is so comfortable, you'll probably never want to take it off. It comes in two neutral colors, so you can find the hue that best matches your style.
What reviewers say: "Obviously bodysuits can be short in torso, so i went with a 6. I'm usually btwn 4-6. It was fine average i have a long torso. It's just so great for weightlifting my pants never ride up or down and your stomach skin won't show but you check your form. really love it."
