    I used to love Athleta but now I wear Miami Fitwear, it is a smaller company but ever piece is made as you order it. I use it for running, spinning, strength training, and yoga, and have no issues with it rolling down. It is medium compression, so if you like tight compression then I wouldn't recommend it. She makes regular lengths, 7/8s, capris and short lengths. Check out the website, some of her designs are addictive.

    Never thought I'd be able to participate in this discussion but here we are. I recently bought 2 pairs of PopFit leggings. I am very large and was concerned they either wouldn't fit or they'd spend all day rolling down, but they do fit and don't budge.

    They pass the "squat test", which was especially impressive because I carry most of my weight in my butt and thighs. They're high waisted and don't roll down. I really like them.

    Sweaty Betty power leggings are just the best thing ever. You can do everything in them.

    VIV Collection from Amazon. They cost about $11 per pair, colorful and fun, super stretchy, dry quickly after a hot class, I abuse them in the dryer with jeans, the waistband is comfortable and basic, and the patterns are so wild that no matter how you bend, the folks behind you can’t see through them. I’ve just started running and find them comfortable for that, too.

    Lightweight enough in a hot class they are super comfortable, and give me “friction” for arm balances way better than using short leggings and sliding off bare sweaty skin. Just can’t get enough “purchase” with shorts for arm balances.

    Strangely enough, even though I now wear a 4 in Levi’s, I find I still prefer the XL in the VIV leggings because I like the extra room and don’t have to pull them up after a flow. I was wearing their XLs all the way up when I was a 22/24 and they fit. They are crazy, crazy stretchy.

    Lorna Jane! Also, I like Girlfriend Collective and they make their leggings out of recycled materials. Love a green company!

    I bought Tesla high waisted side pocket 17" capris from Amazon and they're my current faves.

    Lululemon's, hands down. They make even the flattest butt look good. If you wash them without fabric softener and line dry they can last a couple years.

    Right now I’m currently obsessed with the aline lulu leggings. There not meant for cardio though but great for yoga errands or weight training!

    Fabletics powerholds are my go to now - incredible quality and they don't move around while working out.

    I've been really happy with the ones I've bought from thevahl.com Lots of fun prints to choose from. I haven't tried thier athletic leggings, but thier butter soft leggins have been great. Very very stretchy- You could do anything in them.

    I like lulu and athleta for yoga and HITT. Oldnavy & Zella is ok for daily wear but not for working out. I had a 90 Degrees which I like the fabric, so soft.
    It really depends on what you do. Try it on if you can before purchase. It will last longer if you take care of it too. (I dry on low temp or hang dry and wash with ACTIVE detergent)

    PopFit is amazing! The leggings are incredibly high quality and moderately priced. The material is very breathable and it has pockets! Plus, they spread a message that promotes inclusivity and diversity!

    My trusty ones have been from Daniskin from Walmart and I am not a Walmart girl.

    I really like the ones I got from GapFit. Regular price is $69, when they have sales, you can get them for as low as $12. I purchased 5 of them.

    I have some Danskin capris and leggings from Walmart that are over 10 years old and falling apart. Last time I looked for replacements they were an odd fabric blend - I prefer mostly cotton with just a little spandex. My old ones are nice and breathable.

    Hopefully I wasn't the only one that didn't like the new blend and they have something different now though.
