Lululemon established itself as a women’s yoga brand in 1998 and launched its first men’s line in 2014. The brand has since expanded into making clothing for more active pursuits. Remember, it’s the brand that owns shimmer now. It even offers guides for training and aware self-care.
Beyond that, his list of global ambassadors is proof of the brand’s reach, with representative athletes known for running, boxing, surfing, snowboarding and more.
Where the brand differs is its focus on comfort and mobility, whether you’re on the couch or working out. As you’ll see in the clothing below, lululemon makes a variety of performance fabrics. Each garment incorporates some of these materials and design strategies to create more range of motion and comfort.
Here are some of the bestsellers that showcase the variety of styles available from lululemon.
This relaxed fit jacket also has some flexibility in the nylon fabric. It is water resistant with large chest tote pockets and secure hand pockets with a concealed phone pocket. An internal chest pocket is angled to store or grab valuables. If the weather turns, the underarm zips can wick away heat while the hood adapts to the shape of your head.
Here’s an example of lululemon building a simple crew with four-way stretch French terry. The blend of fabrics adds some shape retention and flexibility to the shirt, which also wicks away moisture, whether it’s sweat or a quick shower.
These simple joggers add performance with stretchy fabrics and a knit meant to be soft on the skin and resist wrinkles.

The At Ease Half-Zip is a double-knit textured cotton crew with added polyester and spandex for moisture wicking and stretch. It has zipped pockets and underarm gussets for greater freedom of movement in your shoulders.
More tapered than traditional joggers, the Surge Hybrid Pants use stretchy fabrics to avoid restricting running motion. Additionally, the pants come with a zip pocket, flat waistband and reflective accents.
This training shirt is designed with a little extra room in the chest and waist to keep it from snagging with your every move. It also uses the brand’s “anti-stink” technology. It’s both a topical zinc treatment and Silverescent technology, powered by X-STATIC, which uses silver threads to break the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
These casual everyday shorts feature a drawstring waist and a back zip pocket to carry your wallet. However, the fabric stretches and has a water resistant treatment to shed light rain or splashes.
This four-way stretch cotton-blend hoodie features underarm gussets for mobility. You can stash a phone and cards in secure zippered pockets, and it has a loop on the back for hanging in your gym locker.
The brand’s water-repellent and windproof Glyde fabric contains a blend of 700 fill power RSD goose down and PrimaLoft insulation, which is positioned in areas most exposed to rain or snow. The sides of the full-zip vest have stretch panels and there are exterior zippered pockets for storing a phone or warming your hands.
