Contrary to most of my favorite A-listers, Kim Kardashian is highly unrelatable…which is precisely why I’m so drawn to her. For example, in a recent Instagram story, dawned chunky black flip-flops for an intense strength workout with Kelly Rowland and celebrity trainer, Senada Greca. The footwear choice was odd, but not too surprising. However, what really shocked me was seeing her wear an activewear set that I’ve had in my wardrobe for years, the Lululemon Align Leggings and Align Tank Top.

Lululemon’s Align fabric is, IMO, an iconic staple in activewear. It’s unbelievably silky smooth, sweat wicking, and so popular, there's even a dedicated “Align" section on the brand’s site. Technically, it’s also a celebrity staple thanks to long-time wearers like Hilary Duff, Meghan Markle, Kristen Bell, and so many more.

The Align Tank Top feels buttery and light against skin, and thanks to gently compressive padding around the bust, can be worn without a bra for low-impact activities like yoga, walking, and in Kim’s case, weight machine exercises. In addition to being breathable and sweat-proof, it also features a longline silhouette that skims the top of high-waisted leggings — the perfect compromise for those who want to stay cool but feel exposed in a traditional sports bra. “[It’s] so cute, flattering and comfy.” wrote one reviewer who called it the “perfect” piece for a busy person in need of a no-fuss top. You can “throw on real quick and still look amazing,” they added.

These are “the softest leggings ever,” according to the chorus of fans in the review section. As someone who’s been wearing these for years, I have to agree that there are few feelings that compare to the joy of slipping on the Align Leggings. Even after countless yoga classes, runs, and naps on my couch, they maintain their shape and buttery-smooth texture. This pair also features a high, slightly compressive waistband designed to stay put as you move. “[They’re] heaven in a legging,” one fan put simply. 

I must admit, it feels good to know one of my all-time favorite workout sets is now Kardashian-approved, a fact I’ll definitely add to my pitch the next time I recommend it to a friend. You can shop the Align Tank Top and Align High Rise Pant from the Lululemon site to your cart today.
