Which of these retailers offers free delivery?

Nothing feels better when shopping online than realising you’ll get your goods delivered to your door – for free. Many online retailers ship for free when your order exceeds a certain amount.

Which are the cheapest of these stores to buy activewear online?

After a bargain? Look for stores that have a sales section to get the best deals.

Sporting House Direct is an online outlet store, when means you can expect outlet prices when shopping online.

Bonds online store offers the Bonds in-house label at a lower price point in comparison with other big name brands.

SurfStitch's activewear sections are reasonably priced in the $40–$80 range, and you can often find coupon codes for THE ICONIC.

Stores such as David Jones and City Beach have frequent sales. Look out for David Jones sales on bras and underwear; it's the perfect time to stock up on sports bras, which normally can be quite expensive.

Missguided and Boohoo also offer extensive clearance sections where you can find some great deals.

Eastbay is famous for offering some of the cheapest branded shoes online, including Converse and Jordans.

Where can I buy plus-size activewear?

Activewear is for everyone. Here's who's selling fashionable gym gear online for curvy women and broader men:

Destination XL: Men's activewear and golf clothing available for sizes XL–7XLT

Missguided: Activewear available up to size 14, swimwear available up to size 24

New Look: Dedicated activewear section with sizes 18–32

City Chic: Swimwear in sizes 14+ available but no gym wear

Autograph Fashion: Swimwear in sizes 14–16 but no gym wear

M&S: Activewear section includes sizes up to 42

ASOS: Swimwear in sizes 18–30 but no activewear

Yours Clothing: Swimwear available in sizes 12–24 and a very restricted line of sporty crops

Millers: Swimwear available in sizes 14–22 but no activewear

Running Bare: Activewear in sizes 10–22.

Where can I buy stylish exercise and dance gear?

This is, of course, a matter of preference, but both THE ICONIC and Free People pride themselves on selling beautiful clothing, and this extends to their activewear sections. Their exercise gear is so chic, you'll want to where it all the time.

In late 2015, you'll get another option to choose from: Beyonce x Topshop. They're collaborating together to start a new exercise clothing brand, so you can get #FLAWLESSS while dressing like Queen Bey.

What do I need to look out for when buying exercise gear?

Function should always be an important factor when selecting activewear. Most online retailers offer a refund or exchange if something doesn’t fit. This is particularly important when buying items such as running shoes. Make sure when you try them on, you do so indoors, and don’t damage or otherwise alter the original state of the product.

Bulky items, like exercise equipment, might take longer to arrive or incur inflated shipping costs. Make sure you read the product description before purchasing, or consult the shipping page for more information.

Which websites will let me return gym gear if it doesn't fit?

The clothes you exercise in have to be the perfect fit; there's no point going for a run if your shorts are too loose. Be aware of the returns policy before you press the pay button.

THE ICONIC has one of the best returns policies around. It's free, it's valid for 100 days, and you can either get a full refund, or a 110% store credit.

SurfStitch gives you 100 days to change your mind (30 days on return items), and if you've spent over $99, it's free. David Jones lets you exchange items in-store.
