Looking for the best athletic wear for tall women? We got you covered.
It isn’t easy to find clothing for tall women. As a tall woman myself, I frequently experienced this dilemma. Ordering a cute new athletic set from a website is fun until you receive it and the sleeves aren’t long enough or the joggers are too short. It has definitely taken some time to curate the perfect options, but I have found some great tall activewear options to share!

The Best Athletic Wear For Tall Women
1. Women’s Tall Athletic Tops
My preference is working out in long sleeve tops at the gym. I generally run cold and it takes me a while to warm up. In the springtime weather, I’ll wear a light jacket (options are below) over my short sleeve or tank top and remove it once I feel warm enough, but in the cooler months, I am always in long sleeves. The top picks for long sleeve athletic tops are from ASOS, Athleta, and Nike.
ASOS Budget Basic
We love the ASOS Tall line for tall women and girls. Their tall activewear is no different.
Athleta Long Sleeve Top
Athleta makes some excellent activewear overall. This Speedlight top comes in multiple colors.
Nike Half-Zip Top
Bonus! This is made from sustainable materials.
The top picks for short sleeves are:
Lululemon Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Shirt
Underarmour UA Rush Short Sleeve
The top picks for tank tops are:
Lululemon Cool Racerback Tank Top
Nike Training Dri-FIT Racer Back Top
2. Women’s Tall Activewear Sets
The last couple of years have reinforced my love for activewear sets. Whether it is working from home, running errands, or even relaxing around the house. Activewear sets are an awesome way to look put together while being super cozy. I am in my activewear sets 99% of the time. Here are some options that are tall-girl friendly:
3. Tall Activewear Pants
I would argue that out of everything listed, pants are the most difficult to find when you’re tall. Here are some of my absolute favorite options. I personally used to be so anti-Lululemon. I believed that purchasing clothing (that I planned on sweating in) at that price point was a waste of money. However, I bit the bullet and purchased my first pair of the Align leggings. Wow, my world changed. First and foremost, the material is so soft and luxurious making my workouts that much more pleasant. I barely feel the leggings when I am wearing them. Second, they last. I workout 3-4x per week (I only use the Lululemon leggings now) and I wash them constantly. If you take care of these leggings properly, they will last a long time and you will be obsessed. Just wash them using the delicate cycle option.

4. Tall Activewear Jackets
As mentioned above, gyms can blast air conditioning (even in the summer) making it freezing! Winter can be just as frigid inside the gym as it is outside. If you are always cold like me, I know you will appreciate wearing a warm-up jacket. Here are my top options for tall activewear jackets.
Regardless of whichever of these options you choose, you will be pleased with your items. Please leave a comment if you purchased any of these and let me know which ones are your favs!
