For us, the best motivator for hopping on a stairmaster is cute workout clothes. Specifically, we’re talking about high-waisted leggings. With their high inseam and suck-you-in fabric, these fitted pants are a fitfluencer favorite. But not all leggings are created equal. We’ve all experienced the horror of realizing mid-workout that your leggings are slouching, so we searched for snug fits that support you without feeling restrictive. From banded waists for added compression to breathable materials in sweat-wicking fabrics to seamless and structured cuts perfect for barre, HIIT, or whatever sport your body loves best, we’ve covered it all. We even discovered Amazon dupes of your favorite designer styles, too.
Shop 25 butt-flattering tights that make it look like you hip thrust in your sleep.
Align Pant II 25″
If you haven’t sung the praises of Lululemon’s cult-favorite Align pants, your approach to workout gear is about to change. We suggest expanding your closet with this bright yellow hue for those who already own the classic black pair, but with 21 colors, you’re bound to find a style that fits you.
Naked Feeling Workout Leggings
The 9,000+ Amazon reviews compare this affordable style to Lululemon’s bestselling pair. It has a scary similar feel and fit, and at $32, it’s hard to pass it up.
Spacedye At Your Leisure High Waisted Midi Legging
You won’t be able to stop touching yourself when you’re wearing Beyond Yoga’s super-soft leggings. The brand makes my absolute favorite leggings for when I need gentle support without restriction, like for a yoga class or light hike. It doesn’t hurt that their matching sets reel in the compliments as soon as I walk out of the door.
Do you even lift? You definitely will in Alphalete, the leggings brand behind your favorite power lifters on TikTok. The scrunch detailing shows off your assets but are flexible and comfortable enough for your next leg day.
Vital Seamless 2.0 Leggings
I love Gym Shark’s sets for more intense workouts, thanks to its seamless leggings that don’t rub your skin the wrong way. You’ll feel supported yet weightless with every burpee.
Even without a wide waistband, SKIMS’ Outdoor Leggings still snatches you in, which is to be expected from this Kim Kardashian-founded brand. The fabric is thick enough to wear in the actual outdoors too, but we wouldn’t blame you for wearing them to dinner either.
Live In High Waist Leggings
Nordstrom shoppers are obsessed with Zella’s aptly named Live In Leggings. With more than 7.2k reviews, rest assured that this perfect black pair will handle all of your needs.
One Luxe Women’s Mid-Rise 7/8 Pocket Leggings
When it comes to intense HIIT training, I always recommend Nike leggings. The brand’s series of One legging is made for burpees. And as always, Nike is also great for looking like you just worked out, even if you had to google what a ‘burpee’ is.
Essential Solids – Leggings
Power Flex Yoga Pants
With more than 21,000 reviews and counting, this is one of Amazon’s best-selling leggings. They’re often compared to Lululemons but come at a fraction of the price (and are available with Prime shipping).
High Waist 7/8 Leggings
Girlfriend Collective is the spot for simple matching sets. Consider them the Glossier of fitness gear: clean, simple, and Instagram-friendly. They’re also size-inclusive, with these leggings running from XXS to 3X.
7/8 High-Waist Airlift Legging
With celebrity fans like leggings-obsessed Kendall Jenner and Hailee Bieber, it’s no wonder Alo Yoga makes some of the best leggings on the market. They’re constantly dropping new styles—like this hot pink pair—that leave you wanting more.
Show off all the hard work you put in with this ultra-flattering contrast stitch pair. You can’t not get the matching top, right?
React Seamless Gym Leggings
TLF is another brand I discovered on my FYP, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. This React style in particular is all the comment section ever talks about, due in part to its contour lines that accentuate your butt.
Real Me Xtra High Waisted Crossover Ruffle Legging
I’ve raved about Aerie’s workout leggings before, and they still hold up to the hype (seriously—two years later and my personal pair is still one of my faves). They also don’t skimp on style, like this ruffle-trimmed style that doubles as a cute brunch look.
I am Wonder Woman Corset Legging In Midnight Blue
If anyone knows about workout gear, it’s Venus Williams. Her super-cute athletic brand Eleven by Venus Williams goes beyond tennis gear, like this metallic set.
Ella High Waist Airweight 7/8
For a preppy look, try Splits 59. Their leggings will remind you of gear you wore to P.E. in 7th grade but so much better.
Oriel High Rise Legging 26 Women’s
For hiking, I recommend Arc’Teryx. Composed of abrasion-resistant material, they’re specifically made to handle rock climbing and the great outdoors, unlike most workout leggings.
High Waist Booty Leggings
These leggings need no introduction, but if you’re living under a TikTok-less rock, these are the trendy leggings for those looking to enhance their assets. According to the internet, prepare to have your partner pass out after seeing you in them.
Malaika Ribbed Seamless Legging
For lower intensity workouts, ribbed leggings are ideal; You get the perfect balance between comfort and support. Zoezi Sport happens to make them in really cute colors, which never hurts.
The Perform Legging
Everlane’s line of athletic clothes is not to be missed. Not only are they made with sustainability in mind, but their performance tights are a wardrobe essential, both in and out of the gym. Even better, almost all colors are on sale for less than $27.
Aditi 2-Tone Legging
Neutral workout gear is on the rise, which will speak to those who avoid loud colors at the gym. Solely Fit’s Dermis collection is an earth tone lover’s dream.
Online barre classes helped us survive 2020, and we’re grateful for the leggings that made us feel like we were actually in a ballet studio and not just shuffling around the coffee table. Live the Process’s dance-inspired collection is en pointe.
Faces Seamless Leggings
Leomie Anderson’s activewear line is known as sportswear with a purpose, aiming to help give young women a platform to use their voice. An added plus is that the clothing is amazing, too.
Lively High Waist Floral Legging
Frankie’s Bikinis is known for their insanely cute swimsuits, but their newly launched activewear is just as good. It follows the same line of thought in flattering fits, fun prints, and matching sets, and this high-waisted legging is no exception.
