Womens workout pants are a staple of any fitness fanatic’s closet. They’re comfortable, breathable and perfect for a variety of exercises. They also look great with a top and sneakers.
Are expensive workout clothes worth it?
If you want the most flattering workout pants, choose a high-waisted style that hug your hips and thighs without pressing or pinching your stomach. We recommend this pair from Baleaf, which is our second most-sold yoga pant since 2019, with nearly 5,000 pairs sold.
They also come in a range of colors and lengths, so you can get the right fit for your body type. Plus, they’re made with a super soft, smooth material that doesn’t sag five minutes into your yoga session.
These FreeForm fabric leggings are oh-so-soft and feel like a second skin. They’re moisture-wicking and won’t chafe you during high-impact exercises, says strategist Karen Iorio Adelson. And they have an interior waist drawcord that prevents the pants from slipping down every few steps, she adds.
Athleta’s Powervita Leggings are another favorite from the brand, with fit-conscious influencer Jessica Rahil saying they “hug my body perfectly” and fit a range of body types. She notes that they’re buttery smooth and stretchy, and they have light compression to support your muscles and help you lift heavier weights in the gym.
The only thing to watch out for with these pants is that they’re known to pill a bit more than some other workout pants we’ve reviewed, but that’s easy to fix by washing them inside out on the delicate cycle and hanging to dry. The result is a pair of leggings you can wear every day for years to come.
