What are your favorite leggings?

alondrakaralondrakar Posts: 67Member Member Posts: 67Member Member
I am thinking about investing in some quality leggings once I hit my goal weight of 140 lbs. My favorite brand, 90 degrees, no longer have the same quality leggings as before. They were such an easy purchase of $20-25 at Marshall's! Now they keep rolling down during my lift and HIIT sessions.

I am currently eyeing the Lululemon in movement tight everlux. Is there something out there better.. for cheaper? Are Lululemons really as great as everyone make them out to be?

Anything by Nike and Addidas has always been a huge letdown.

    I have been wanting to try Lululemon as well. My 17 year old daughter loves them - but she’s like 105 lbs! She wears them for hours of dance and says they are comfy and hold up well.

    I really like Athleta. Compared to Old Navy, the Athleta leggings (I think they’re actually called tights) wash up better and don’t get sweaty and stinky during a tough workout. I love the 7/8 length since I’m short. Happy Shopping!

    I was going to recommend 90 Degrees LOL. They're my favorite. I buy mine on Amazon

    I don't know if you have CVS drug stores in your area but they carry leggings for 6.99. I love them.... they are ultra soft and flattering. I get more compliments on them than my more expensive ones.

    I really like the Fabletics high waisted 7/8 powerhold leggings. I've never worn anything better. I am too big for lululemon so I am not sure how they compare to those but I know they're cheaper LOL

    Under Armour, Joy Lab (Target brand), and 90 Degrees.

    I have about a million pairs of tights, every brand from Nike, Adidas, Fabletics, various brands from Amazon, Athleta and Lululemon. As much as I hate to say it because I don't love the company itself, I always keep coming back to buying Lululemon tights when I want something more for function that fashion.

    Though I don't have the in movement tights I do have several pairs of each of lulus' align pants, wunder unders and my favorite styles of all time, the flow and go and the free to flow tights (which are both "seamless" tights that I think they no longer make). The Lululemon tights have far outlasted any other tights I have bought, I have had several of these pairs for 4 years or more and they are still in good shape after wearing them around once a week. I had two pairs that developed a hole and Lulu repaired one pair for free and replaced the other with a free pair. I think based on the longevity they are worth the investment though I have bought a few styles in a material I didn't end up loving based on the slippery nature of the fabric so my advice is really check out which fabric you prefer before purchasing.

    Athleta tights are pretty comparable to Lululemon's in terms of quality and SLIGHTLY cheaper, if you're looking for something a little less expensive but great quality i'd try them out. I have bought a few pairs of Fabletics tights that I really like but I find the quality of Fabletics tights to really be hit or miss depending on style and fabric. Fabletics VIP membership thing is an annoying scam which caused me to stop purchasing them.

    Hope that helps!

    My favorites are Zella and Avocado brands (both in the high waisted versions even though I'm on the thinner side). They tend to be expensive, but you can often find them at a huge discount and Nordstrom Rack or online (Ruelala is a great source). I love them so much that this is my very first post :)

    I really like the Bally Total Fitness Leggings I get. They've help up well for me, I buy them at Ross.

    TekGear from Kohl's are my favorite!

    My favorites are balance collection. I usually get them from TJ Maxx. They were my first pair of running leggings and that first pair just started getting holes last month. I've been wearing them regularly for running, base layer, etc. for 5 years. I wear them as pj pants now. I like that they're soft, aren't too long (I'm short), and don't roll down.

    I love my lululemons and got most of my pairs off of Poshmark gently used for a much lower price
  • alondrakaralondrakar Posts: 67Member Member Posts: 67Member Member
    Thank you all! I am looking into these tonight and will probably do some window shopping on Ebay or Poshmark if I do decide on the Lulus.

    Has anyone tried Gymshark by any chance?

    Check out oalka on amazon....I had zella but this is better!
  • wmweezawmweeza Posts: 265Member Member Posts: 265Member Member
    I wear Champion C9 leggings. There's probably better ones but I liked the first pair I bought so I keep using that same brand

    Depends on what I'm doing ...

    For yoga, I love Fabletics (seamless or cashel leggings specifically) or Alo Yoga's Goddess legging.

    For lifting/hiking I love Fabletics powerhold anything or Vimmia (I'm not sure if it's the seams or the fabric or both, but they make my butt look AWESOME!).

    For hiking/water I love werkshop. Northern California based company has a triathlon line that is so supportive and they dry quickly when wet (they also have a terrific athleisure line). A bonus for hiking with water hazards or on the beach. And she hand draws her own designs and they're freakin' AMAZING!

    Cardio is usually Fabletics. About 80-85% of my gear is Fabletics. I love the prices, the way it wears, and the monthly membership thing is fine with me.

    I've heard good things about GymShark from friends, but have never tried them myself.

    Thredup (online resale) has good deals as does

    Another vote for Athleta - the fit is great and they stay up and wick moisture excellently.

    The tights I always end up wearing until they are about to fall off are my Old Navy tights!

    I've bought Zella and know a lot of people who like them. Right now, I'm loving the Oalka ones from Amazon. I bought one pair, then two days later ordered more. They get great reviews and many reviewers compare them favorably to Lululemon.

    I just bought some at Costco (capris) which are awesome and completely non see-through. $15 online.
