Zella Vs Lululemon: Workout Pants

Zella Vs LuluLemon

The warm weather is finally here! You know what that means… pool days! Warm weather also means stepping up my workouts, and nothing motivates me more in a workout than new workout clothes! I love the sheer detail on these Zella capris.

Since I’m always wearing leggings, people often ask me the big question: What’s better? Zella vs Lululemon? Let me start off by saying thats TOUGH. If you aren’t familiar with Zella, it is a Nordstrom workout brand similar to Lululemon. I actually prefer Zella workout pants over Lululemon’s for a few different reasons:

1. The price point is about $30 cheaper. (Plus, my favorite Zella pair is a part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale right now!) This means I can stock up on more than one pair at a time!

2. The waist bands on my Zella pants don’t cut into me like my Lulus do… aka no love handles. *Note, I do like the waist band of Lululemon align pants aside from the price point!

3. Zella aren’t see through 😉

4. More comfortable.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Lululemon.. especially their tops. I’ll take Lululemon AND  Zella all day, but Zella pants take the win for me!  I became hooked on Zella pants when I was in search for the perfect pair of full length black leggings. I found the Zella Live In Leggings and fell in love. Definitely give them a try since they are on sale! Although they are workout leggings, I wear mine all year round with clothing and boots as well. If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend giving them a try!  I’ve converted many of my friends over from Lululemon Wunder Unders to Zella Live In Leggings! They re a closet essential.

There you have it folks. My verdict on the Zella Vs Lululemon debate: Zella.

  1. I love your zellas! After being late to the lululemon game but falling in love nonetheless, I just ordered my first pair of Zella’s to try as a comparison. Very excited and thanks for your great review.

  2. Hi Lauren,
    I am a Zella converter as well! (Although I still love me some lulu.) I only have a Zella top and jacket but want to try the Live In Leggings. Do you know the size conversion from lululemon to Zella? I have a 6 in lululemon Wunder Unders and was thinking a M in Live in Leggings.


    1. Hey!! I would try a medium first, although you can always order a S and M and then send back whichever one doesnt work best. I switch off between a 2-4 in lulu and I wear a size small in most zella pants. Hope that helps! xoxo
