Cancel that overpriced restaurant reservation and get your valentine something they’ll put to use for years to come: lululemon apparel.
If you’re buying a loved one gear for Valentine’s Day, make it something comfortable. That’s the thinking behind these gift ideas from lululemon.
If you still think of lululemon as a yoga tights brand, it’s time to catch up. They’ve been making athletic apparel with soft and stretchy fabrics that are made to be durable and last for years.
One of our editors has been wearing one of the brand’s technical shirts for more than a decade.
Comfy Valentine’s Day
The brand’s apparel is made using plush fabrics with technical specs made for all kinds of movements, from the yoga mat to the gym to the trail. Check out these popular picks for that special someone in your life.
These popular tights use a four-way stretch fabric with sweat-wicking qualities. That also means it breathes during exercise and dries quickly afterward. The tights are shaped to add a feel of support and use a brushed texture against the skin. A touch of Lycra adds stretch and shape retention.
Stock up on soft and stretchy boxers made from a breathable fabric made from wood-based materials. The front of the boxers has a pouch for added room and support. A 7″ version is also an option.
If you aren’t aware, lululemon’s ABC technology stands for “Anti-Ball-Crushing.” What better way to show a loved one you care about them, and their assets?
But seriously, these joggers are designed to stay roomy up top throughout all kinds of movement and use a breathable, soft fabric that resists wrinkling.
The Fundamental T-Shirt — Men’s: From $58
This technical T-shirt shoots for the feel and looks of a classic cotton tee, but blends in the brand’s No-Stink Zinc tech to stymie the growth of odor-causing bacteria. The shirt is also abrasion-resistant and has Lycra for a bit of stretch.
The Swiftly Tech offers long-sleeve coverage for running and training with seamless construction. It’s mainly made from nylon and recycled polyester for wicking breathability. But it also adds touches of Elastane and X-static nylon for stretch and shape retention.
The stretchy, moisture-wicking Pace Breaker shorts are shaped to flex with and make room for thighs and glutes. A zippered pocket can hold essentials.
There are 5-inch and 9-inch versions, too.
Align Tank Top — Women’s: From $58
Like the rest of the Align collection, this tank top is stretchy and soft. The top has a built-in shelf bra for support along with pockets for removable cups.
Roomy and oversized, as you can see, this sweatshirt is all about comfort. You can wear it as an easy-on, easy-off layer for workouts or just to stay cozy around the house.
This is, quite simply, a sweater wrap with cashmere mixed into the brand’s knit Cashlu fabric for added softness. Side pockets give it a touch of functionality when on the move.
