How we chose these leggings
We (Mercey and Amanda) have been testing leggings for various activities for years. We have both been passionate exercisers for some time, and between the two of us we have tried almost every type of exercise that exists:long distance dance cardio workout , , hiking – whatever you remember, we probably did it (and probably in leggings).
We have used our personal experience with various brands of active clothing to bring you the best of the best. We hope to direct you in the right direction for your favorite activity and save you time. So with that in mind, here are our tips on the best leggings for 2022.
Wunder Under leggings were one of the first things I bought from Lululemon more than five years ago. And – I’m not kidding you – they still look and feel great and I probably wore these Lululemon leggings more than any other leggings in my collection. I love these leggings because they are so versatile – I wore them from everything from yoga to boxing to cardio dancing.
The super breathable fabric is supportive and soft and not hot. I also like a high waist that doesn’t compress you too much – just enough to keep you comfortable in your waist. Wunder Under leggings are a popular variant of leggings among the CNET Health and Wellness team because they are durable and versatile. Even better, these Lululemon leggings come in a huge variety of colors, sizes and lengths,
Everyone has leggings and these have been mine for years. I’m obsessed with Athleta’s Powervita, which is super soft and buttery, and yet supports. While trying many leggings over the years, I have found that you usually soften or support them – not both.
I saw it this way until I found leggings similar to those of Athleta. Although I haven’t tried this specific style of leggings (the ones I bought are years ago), they are very close in style and the fabric is the same. I like that they have a comfortable side pocket and the high waist is wide and supportive.
My Athletes leggings withstood all kinds of exercise – from studio and spin classes to running, dancing cardio and more. Despite countless washes, these training leggings still look like new after years. I know the price isn’t cheap, but I think Athletes’ leggings are worth investing in an exercise wardrobe.
Sweaty Betty is one of my favorite leggings because she produces so many different styles of leggings and colors and printed leggings are always super cute. They are also made of sweat- and moisture-wicking fabric. I have owned a pair of Power Workout leggings for several years and are one of my favorite pairs when I need more support, such as running or a high impact class.
I like that they are compression leggings, but they don’t look stiff or uncomfortable. The fabric is super smooth and soft and looks flattering.
When I first discovered high-waist leggings, I knew I would never return. Can we all agree that we will never return to the hip-hugger trend of the 1990s? High leggings are, in my honest opinion, incredibly better than low or even medium-high leggings.
It’s not just because I think high leggings look better (although it definitely plays a role in why I feel much more confident in them), but also because high leggings are much more functional clothes for exercise. High-waist leggings stay in place during high-intensity training and allow you to focus on your workouts, not whether your buttocks are starting to crack.
My favorite high leggings from Target – the new All In Motion Contour Power Waist Capris – are made of densely woven luxury fabric that wicks sweat away from the skin. They are soft and perfectly flexible. And it only costs $ 25!
These full-length non-slip leggings stay in place from sun greetings to savasana. I ordered these moisture wicking yoga leggings after seeing them become popular on social media and not disappointing in the slightest. The front to back ratio is perfect, so there is no difference in waist height when they are on.
And Zella leggings are made of 88% polyester and 12% spandex – in other words, they wick away moisture – so you can wear them comfortably like yoga pants for yoga or outdoor yoga.
A group of girlfriends
What I like most about these leggings is that Girlfriend Collective doesn’t really call them “plus-size” – they’re just size leggings (that’s something I think must happen all around, but that’s a different story). These Girlfriend Collective leggings increase from size XXS to 6XL and in addition there are options for the length of the inner seam: You can choose from 19.25 inches (capri), 23.75 inches (7/8) or 28.5 inches (full length) .
Made from 75% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) and 25% spandex, these Girlfriend leggings offer the perfect amount of compression and stretch. I have these leggings in a medium design, so even though I can’t guarantee other sizes, I can imagine that the cut of the panties would fit everyone equally perfectly, mainly due to Girlfriend’s emphasis on body inclusiveness.
Although you can practice or practice yoga in these comfortable leggings, I usually wear them all day. Beyond Yoga Spacedye fabric is one of the softest and most comfortable materials I’ve found in many, many brands of active clothing I’ve tried, so they’re great leggings.
These leggings move with you, but they are not too tight or loose. I have these high waist leggings in two different colors and I like it so much that I bought a similar style (high waist, space-dye fabric), except for biker shorts. If I could keep only one leggings, it would be these.
What to look for in leggings
What you should look for in leggings depends on what exactly you do in them. Theoretically, you can wear the same leggings for each activity, but you may not have the best experience. For example, wearing party leggings for an Orangetheora class could result in unpleasant sweat stains and stretched fabric.
Here are some things to keep in mind when buying additional leggings:
- Fit: Do you want them to be compression or free? Low-floor or high-floor? Do you want to have your belly under control?
- Fabric: You will want to look for a breathable fabric, a moisture wicking fabric for any sweating activities, but fabrics such as cotton and wool are suitable for lounging.
- Stretch: For high-intensity activities or activities that require full range of motion, be sure to look for elastic leggings for exercise.
- Temperature: Most leggings are fine all year round, but you may want to consider a special pair for cold winter weather.
