Athleta is an athleisure and sports clothing company owned by Gap. They have a fabulous return policy: return anything, any time, in any condition, and they pay for the return shipping. 

My favorite cold weather running tights and hiking pants come from Athleta as well as UPF sun protection tops. 

Recently they won my heart by sponsoring Allyson Felix, who has won more track and field and Olympic medals than any other runner. Felix had been sponsored by Nike, but they didn’t support her when she took maternity leave. Athleta stepped up. Then they added Simone Biles, arguably one of the most talented and dedicated athletes of all time. 

Athleta also has created clothes for special populations, such as a shirt that’s ready for play and has a big pocket in front for kids with Type 1 diabetes who need to bring their continuous glucose monitors with them. They carry a post-mastectomy bra

Their clothing includes both petite and tall as well as plus size up to 3X or size 26.
