The Ultimate Guide To All Your Legging Questions

Whether you love or loathe leggings, you’ve got to admit they’re the second best thing to wearing no pants ever. Despite being able to find leggings literally everywhere, for many of us they still maintain mythical unicorn status. Try finding a pair that’s not see-through when you bend over, or doesn’t pop a hole the second your thighs rub together, or that can keep you warm when it’s under 65 degrees outside. Even for those in the #Leggings4Life category struggle to find a way to wear the louder prints or style them without looking like you stepped out off the PSL Runway. There’s also those of us who stand strongly behind the theory that it’s your body and you wear whatever the hell you want that makes you feel good, but are still hung up on some body image issues that make us wonder how comfortable showcasing our butts, muffin tops, or thighs.

That’s why we’ve decided to create the ultimate guide to leggings: where to find the best of the best, how to style them, and even ways to feel more comfortable turning your pro-body image mantra into real life .

 

THE BEST LEGGING BRANDS

 

ASOS CURVE Premium Supersoft Legging In Cotton Modal $22

These are the softest, most comfortable and not-super clingy leggings you’ll ever find. Made for girls with curves, they work with you instead of against you, so there’s no muffin top and a nice wide-band that doesn’t roll up or down. They’re entirely opaque, so there’s no concern over bright undies shining through, and the material doesn’t look cheap or too informal, so you don’t look like you’re in your PJs.

 

Ann Taylor Stretch Black Leggings $69

They also make petite sizes, which saves short ladies the trouble of dealing with awkward, bunchy cuffs around the ankles.

Old Navy Patterned-Waist Leggings, $23 and Go-Dry Cool Compression Crops, $25

These are both bargain workout leggings that are passable for day wear too. They almost never are full price since Old Navy has sales every other day (The most I’ve paid for a pair is $17). The patterned-waist leggings work great at the gym or paired with a long tunic for a night out or daytime wear. Neither are see through, but the compression ones are best suited for working out since they’re shinier. (Unless you’re totally cool with the spandex look, then by all means rock them running errands too—your butt will be fully covered and secure). They also have a higher-waist option that holds everything in as well for curvier ladies. With exceptional comfort and an affordable price, Old Navy leggings are hard to beat.  

 

Under Armour UA Studio Legging $65

These leggings, while on the expensive side, are the best investment pair you’ll find. And although they’re from Under Armour, they don’t look sporty and can easily be worn dressed up or down. The UA Studio Legging has a high waistband (yay smooth curves), a tight fit (that guarantees these guys won’t be slipping around as you move), a matte-finish material (so soft and so not shiny), and sleek seam lines (super flattering). Bonus for you tall ladies: these are the perfect length! If you’re often uncomfortable with how your legs or butt look in fitted pants/leggings, give these a try. They’re magic.
