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 apparel for more active pursuits. Remember, this is the brand that owns Mirror now. It even offers guides for training and mindful self-care.

Beyond that, its roster 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 emphasis on comfort and mobility, whether you’re on the couch or working out. As you’ll see in the apparel below, lululemon makes a variety of performance fabrics. Each garment incorporates some of those 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.
