Vicky Pattison reveals her favourite budget workout outfits – all for under £40

LET’S face it – one of the only things you are getting dressed for at the moment is your workout, whether at home or in the local park – so why not look the part?

Luckily, you don’t need to splurge on designer sports brands to get your on-trend tops, supportive sports bras and figure-hugging leggings.

Here, telly star Vicky Pattison, 33, tests out the budget fit kit available to order online or buy from the supermarket now.

Every outfit is under £40 and Vicky, who wore £12 trainers from Primark, gives her verdict and her marks out of ten.

“I really like the long line of this top. I think for women who aren’t tiny, it’s nice to not have to wear a crop top to the gym. The muted darker tones are really flattering and seasonal, too.

The leggings fit perfectly and look good on the bum – and you can’t even see my knickers in them.”

Verdict: 9/10

Total: £18

  • Patterned vest, £8, leggings, £10, both George at Asda (

“The top is so comfy. It’s lined and cosy and it’s perfect for exercising in winter.

"The leggings are capri which I think for bigger thighs are really flattering. I don’t think I’d wear these together but as separate pieces instead.”

Verdict: 6/10

Total: £30

  • Grey jumper, £16; leggings, £14, both TU at Sainsbury’s (

“I love this outfit. The jumper is so cute and cosy, the leggings are functional and fashionable. I could definitely see myself doing a gym class in this look and go out afterwards.

“It even passes the squat test – you can’t see my knickers through them. Result.”

Verdict: 9/10

Total: £39.98

  • Pink jumper, £19.99; leggings, £19.99, both from

“Initially I was hesitant about this look because it looked tiny and a bit like a wetsuit. But actually I feel really held in and it is flattering. I can see a lot of girls looking great in this at the gym.

“However, when I was working out the top did keep riding up, so make sure you factor that in.”

Verdict: 5/10

Total: £40

  • Black top, £20; leggings, £20, both

“This print is a bit too loud for me but I feel very supported. if you’re a fan of print I would definitely recommend it.

“I can’t believe that the top is only £6.50 – what a bargain.”

Verdict: 7/10

Total: £31.50

  • Print top, £6.50, leggings, £25, both

“I would 110 per cent wear this jumper. The leggings feel like tights though, and I thought they’d be awful at first, but once they were on they made working out easy and are surprisingly flattering.

“I feel so snuggly in the fleece – it feels like a mother’s hug.”

Verdict: 8/10

Total: £26

  • Fleece, £10; leggings, £16, both F&F at Tesco (in store only)
