Tights and leggings and spandex, oh, my! I have a serious love affair with workout leggings. Some girls have a high-heel obsession, but I’m all about the workout leggings, baby!
When I’m teaching a fitness class, I prefer leggings or tights to shorts (better butt coverage!). When I’m out and about, I wear a pair with a long sleeve shirt, a puffy vest, and a cute pair of boots. Even though I’m technically wearing workout clothes, I don’t scream “gym rat.”
Workout leggings have come a long way from just being sporty and comfortable; they are super cute, majorly in style and I’ve come to pride myself on knowing which are the best workout leggings around. And if you don’t think you can pull off a legging, you’re wrong!
Everybody type can rock a good tight in AND outside of the gym! Go bold, have fun, be crazy. If you don’t think you can wear stripes or patterns–YES YOU CAN! As a matter of fact, a bold pattern actually camouflages and minimizes! And stay away from VPL (Visible Panty Line). Lumpy undergarments plus leggings are a bad mix! Ready to get your legging love on? Here are 8 of the best workout leggings to grow (or start!) your collection!
Made with Athleta’s Powervita™ fabric, it’s buttery soft with the support that holds you in tight. Your favorite pair of workout leggings are made better with a side stash pocket for your keys, cards, or phone!
Made for your yoga practice. The fabric on these workout leggings is so soft, it literally feels like butter on your skin!
Amazing four-way stretch that gives you just enough hug, but not too much that it gives you the “muffin top” around the mid-section. Moisture and sweat-wicking for your hot and sweaty workouts.
Slightly different than Lululemon’s Align fabric, made with the breathable Luon™ fabric makes these tights a sweaty staple.
What I love about these leggings is the 7/8 length! For someone who is 5 ft 5 inches, this hits me perfectly at the ankle.
Made from Alo’s micro-performance double-knit Airlift fabric, this legging has a skin-tight feel that sculpts and smooths to your body like no other pair of leggings!
Can you say buttery soft?! Amazing soft feel to these workout legging for half the cost of any other brand name legging out there. Great quality and even better prices!
Does anyone else love the side pocket for your phone? As an avid dog walker in the spring and summer months, I like to have my hands free while I walk the dog. These leggings are the perfect fit with a side pocket for my keys, card, and of course my phone!
