The popularity of activewear is undeniable, with more and more people opting for comfortable and trendy clothing options that can be worn at the gym and beyond. The rise of athleisure has given way to many new activewear companies, each offering its unique take on what makes the perfect workout style. 

MOXY Active was started within this trend with the vision to bring a unique style to the activewear crowd while supporting our customers’ efforts to live healthy and passionate lives. We focus on comfort, affordability, and responsible manufacturing practices to ensure we contribute a product to this market that we are proud to make and you are proud to wear. 

With the market being so competitive, it is sometimes hard for a small activewear brand to stand among giants like Lululemon and Athleta. We may be small, but we are making a mighty effort to provide a product that is unique in both value and style. Here is how our leggings stack up with these other brands.

Lululemon is one of the most popular activewear companies in the world, known for its consistent quality products and chic designs. The company's products are on the expensive side, with a pair of leggings costing upwards of $100+. Their customers often refer to their purchases as an “investment” in the addition to their wardrobe. While we applaud Lululemon for its reputation for utilizing sustainable manufacturing practices such as using recycled polyester in some of its products, its mass manufacturing processes create a ton of excess fashion waste for the environment.

It's estimated that around 30% of clothes produced by fast fashion brands are never sold and end up being discarded. This amounts to approximately 10 million tons of clothing waste per year.

Another activewear company that has gained a lot of attention in recent years is Athleta. Like Lululemon, Athleta's products are on the pricier side, with a pair of leggings costing between $89 and $119. Athleta has made an admirable commitment to using sustainable manufacturing practices, such as using recycled materials in its products and reducing its carbon footprint by using renewable energy sources. However, like Lululemon, they are filling shelves with their products all over the world which will inevitably lead to a ton of excess fashion waste.

At MOXY Active, our leggings are not only more affordable than these two mainstream brands, but we use print-on-demand services to make your leggings when they are ordered. We keep no inventory, stock no shelves and leave nothing to waste away in landfills when it does not sell in the mercurial retail market. You can proudly wear your MOXY products knowing they were made just for you.

We also love that MOXY is an activewear brand that offers such unique designs. Our leggings are printed with highly graphic patterns and bright colors to give your wardrobe a real pop of personality. Everyone is wearing black and solid-color leggings these days, but we think it is way more fun to stand out from the crowd and show off your unique style in our comfortable leggings, shorts, and sports bras. 

While there are many activewear companies on the market, we are proud that MOXY is doing it right and providing a product you don’t see on every shelf in every town. If you haven’t tried a pair of MOXY Active leggings yet, now is the time. We know you will love them!
