Getting Fit Fabulously, A Cheaper Alternative

In Getting Fit Fabulously, I talked about my discovery of the GapBodyFit line, a super chic workout wear collection that makes me feel fabulous while working out.  Though a great value, the GapBodyFit collection is somewhat pricey when not on sale.

Since I am still trying to expand my workout wardrobe, I decided to try the lower priced Danskin Now line available at Walmart.

So far, I have bought and tested the Danskin Now leggings ($8) and the shelf-bra, racerback tank ($7). Those prices are unbelievable, right?    Let me just say, the leggings with a comfy, wide waistband have an amazing fit.  The tanks were also quite comfortable, but the dri-more technology was not as effective as the stay dry features of items in the GapBodyFit line.

At the Danskin Now prices, I will definitely buy another pair of leggings and perhaps try the bootcut pants.

Have you tried the Danskin Now line?

    I haven't tried these but I've seen them in passing. I'm not normally a WalMart shopper but I was somewhat impressed that they had Danskin items, because my experience with their leotards and ballet wear goes back about 40 years, and they have always made quality items. Of course, a lot can change in 40 years. Hope you have a good experience with these, maybe I'll find myself back at WM at some point.

    Awesome, I'll check these out-I'm on a tight budget and can't afford the gap line. Like the wider waistband on the leggings on bought from Target but haven't been able to find more.

    I like the danskin line as far as style goes and I agree that the dri more technology is not very effective

    @Someone: Thanks for stopping by and sharing your experience with Danskin items over the years. I have worn the leggings and tops (I bought a white and purple one) a few times now and really love them so far.

    @iminozz: Oh wow…I have been searching with no luck for those Mossimo for Target leggings too. I wanted a second pair. I must say, though, that the fabric on the Danskin leggings appears to be of a higher quality than the Target pair I have. Check them out!
