C9 by Champion at Target review and a $25 gift card #giveaway #c9attarget

A few months ago, I came very close to signing up for a monthly subscription to receive one outfit a month of fashionable workout clothing from a line called Ellie. The whole reason was a shirt I fell in love with. I ended up not signing up that night and honestly forgot about it.

Then I was asked to work with Target for their C9 by Champion® line at Target. I was familiar with their line and budget friendly prices but had yet to try it out for myself. I was presented with a gift card to purchase and review items from the C9 line. My best friend Keri was in town this weekend so we happily stopped at our Target store to do some fitness gear shopping.

That's when I saw it - a nearly identical shirt to the one I almost agreed to sign up for a monthly membership which was more than I spend for my Disney Premium Pass. I was so excited to see this C9 by Champion® Women's Layered Tank with Bra ($22.99) that I instantly tried it on, loved it and made it mine. It's adorable and very comfortable.
The nearly identical shirt I wanted from Ellie was $34.99 + shipping. The C9 by Champion® Women's Layered Tank with Bra is fashion forward, flirty and a lot of fun. It's a perfect Yoga shirt or other non-impact sports shirt and I love that it has a built in sports bra. It's also great for lounging around the house - way cuter than a t-shirt.
Keri and I found a ton of C9 by Champion® outfits we loved while at Target on this trip. Unlike my option above, the colors offered are bright and coordinate with multiple pieces. I tend to go for dark and dreary with a splash of pink, unless I am at a race.

From running skirts, heat gear and compression sports bra's, C9 by Champion® has something for every athlete. I was beyond impressed and will be purchasing more items online (my particular Target store was a bit picked over in my size - this line must be doing very well in Tampa). Check out the goodies Keri and I found below!

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Target's C9 stuff! I would get the capri/running skirt a few weeks ago and almost bought, but the budget it tight and I opted for a couple of their shirts instead. 2 different razorback compression shirts and I love them both! I had to giggle b/c I actually took pictures very similar to yours above, and blogged about my purchases b/c I loved their selection! (and haven't been to Target in a long time)

    1. I loved that running skirt too! It would be perfect for fall time in FL. I was very tempted to get it but wouldn't get much use out of it. They had one running skirt that looked so much like lululemon but I didn't get it. I don't train in skirts and I have so many already.

    1. It's so adorable on Meg. My boyfriend even complimented it without me asking his opinion. Since I work from home a lot, it is a good option for me around the house. I may pick it up in the other colors as well :)

    1. I tried those on while there! Very comfortable. That is the type of short I generally run in.

  4. Ok I have to admit this: when shirts go on sale or deeply discounted I buy numerous ones and hoard them in my closet. Yes I said it! I have even been known to buy them for people because of the great price and colors- especially if I know me and my running partner are going to do a team race.
    The C9 line is so affordable & comfortable. I just went to Target a few nights ago unexpected and saw all of the new summer colors & styles and love them!

    1. Jen, I am the same way - even in daily clothes. I tend to buy the same shirt in multiple colors too!! I just did my spring/summer closet purge and was shocked at how many duplicates I owned due to hoarding during sales.

  6. I love the C9 by Champion® Women's Run Short with Compression. I really like the fact that they have the compression shorts underneath but the mesh shorts on top! What a brilliant idea for women with an "athletic build" like me! :) P.S. I also LOVE the top that Keri and Megan found! Super cute!

  34. Athletic wear encompasses clothing worn to work out in gyms, to participate in sports or sports training, to yoga and pilates clothing styles, to the traditional sweatsuit and champion is really an excellent brand in the athletic wears.
