READ TIME:1 min.

People that know me know it’s more common to find me in leggings than not. My activewear drawers are usually overflowing, so I guess you could say I’ve tried and tested a lot of different brands—some I’ve been more or less pleased with. Today I’m going to share my all-time favorites with you!


$ Barbella Chrystine Legging
Beautiful, seamless, super stretchy leggings. My one piece of advice: size down.

$$ P’Tula Alainah II Legging
High-rise, seamless waistband, buttery-soft fabric, and gorgeous color waves.

$$$ Lululemon All the Right Places II
Pockets, breathable, and perfect contour stitching (to make that booty pop!).


$ Queenie Ke Women Yoga Leggings Nine Pants Power Flex High Waist Gym Running Tights
Two words: Amazon Prime. The waistband stays up through even the most intense intervals.

$$ Alphalete Revival Leggings
Well-fitted waistband to stop sliding down, lots of flexibility, and enough stretch to help you stay in stride

$$$ Lululemon Fast and Free Tight
Drawstring to keep them up, perfectly breathable, and sweatproof fabric.


$ Yogalicious High Waist Ultra Soft Lightweight Capris
Super soft fabric and eligible for Amazon Prime. The only downside is a thin, elastic waistband.

$$ Til You Collapse Classic Legging
High-waisted, super stretchy, and no restricted movement. Plus, made out of a breathable and compressive material.

$$$ Alo Yoga High-Waist Goddess Legging
Cozy, extra long, and the perfect legging for a relaxing yoga flow or cuddling up by the fire.


$ Queenie Ke Women High Waist Yoga Leggings Running Pants Workout Tights
Super high waist and hidden rear pocket big enough for any cell phone. Oh, and Amazon Prime.

$$ Buff Bunny Luna Legging
Flat-laying, seamless waistband, pockets, and great compression. These go through regular phases of being “sold out” and “restocked,” so don’t be discouraged if they don’t have your size!

$$$ Carbon 38 Takara Legging
Silky, shiny, and flexible with a leather-like appearance. Dress up or down. Breathable enough for your workout.
