The most flattering workout leggings

Our favorite leggings for exercising or just lounging around.

Working out is hard enough without worrying about how you look in your leggings. Are they creeping up? Falling down? Clinging to all the wrong areas? It can be tough to find a pair that’s breathable and flattering–plus makes you feel as good as your sweat-filled workout will. Thankfully, these options do the trick.

Amazon Essentials Women’s Performance Mid-Rise Full-Length Active Legging

Comfortable and cute. Amazon


These affordable leggings have a flattering and comfortable mid-rise, with a wide waistband that smooths and holds your tummy securely. They are made with a four-way stretch, moisture-wicking fabric to accommodate your deepest lunges and help keep you cool. The leggings come in six different fabrics: your basic black, gray, burgundy and navy, but also an attractive olive color, and a fun-without-being-garish grey camo. A few reviewers mention they have a tendency to be see-through, but that can often be a problem with individual fit. It’s always a good idea to check your rear-view with any leggings. With a full-length 27” inseam, these leggings may be a touch long if you’re on the petite size.
