These leggings might be designed as yoga pants, but it’s in our opinion that they can be worn for virtually any activity. They’re made out of a blend of 75% polyester and 25% spandex, so they’re not only durable and opaque, but they also stretch very well and are comfortable, too. They have a secure outside pocket that can be used to hold keys, cash or phone, and they’re designed with interlocked seams that reduce skin irritation. And since they also have a gusseted crotch, they also won’t cause chaffing like so many yoga pants tend to do. And it’s for those reasons that these are the best leggings for women to purchase hands-down.

The Ultimate Guide To Leggings
All of us realize that leggings make pretty good workout pants. It doesn’t matter if a woman wears them for spin class, yoga class, or while working out at the gym because these pants are soft, comfortable, and provide the flexibility they need. Most of them are even good for jogging or other aerobic activities, as they tend to wick away moisture, preventing the sweat from building up the way it can with some other types of athletic pants. And if the leggings are going to be used for those purposes, then just about any pair will probably work out well.
However, if a woman wants to wear a pair of leggings outside of the gym, then they’re probably going to want to take a few moments to think about some of the additional features they might need their leggings to have to qualify as a good pair of day-to-day pants. That’s why we’ve developed the following recommendations every woman should think about before buying a new pair of leggings. Although not every woman will want to follow every single one of the following points, it is a good place to start for most women to help them buy the best leggings for daily wear.
Don’t Size Up
One of the most important things to consider before buying a pair of leggings is to try to stay true to size as much as possible. Yes, we know that leggings can look small when they’re first purchased, but believe us when we tell you that they will stretch out over time. And it’s for that reason that women should try to stay true to size when ordering a new pair of leggings. And if you’re extremely active, then you might even want to size down, because if you don’t, then they may tend to become too loose over time.
A common misconception among some consumers is that all leggings are the same, so they don’t need to pay attention to the material it’s made from. However, we’re here to say that is patently false. Although all leggings are made from a mix of polyester and spandex, the polyester/spandex blend that drugstore leggings use is usually an inferior material. The best leggings are made from a stronger nylon material such as Econyl. This material not only stretches well, but it’s extremely durable, so it won’t wear out in only a couple of months.
Consider A Ribbed Waistband
Another feature that can turn an ordinary pair of leggings into the best leggings a person can purchase is a ribbed waistband. This is especially true if the wearer does a lot of outdoor activities such as hiking, jogging or cycling. Leggings that have a ribbed waistband are more likely to stay up during physical activities so that the woman doesn’t have to spend all of their time tugging them back up or readjusting them.
Decide Between Full-Length & Capri Leggings
Another thing to keep in mind is whether you want a pair of Capri or full-length leggings, or whether you need one of each. As a general rule, Capri leggings are good for women working out during warm summer weather or if they wear heavy gym tights underneath their leggings during the winter. Full-length leggings, on the other hand, are more suitable for colder weather and cover more of the leg. However, these are general guidelines and you may want to keep a pair of each around to handle different workout situations as they arise. Remember, the best leggings for you are comfortable.
Consider Pocket Options
The next thing to think about is the pocket options that a pair of leggings will offer you. Some leggings contain no pockets, some only contain an inner waistband pocket, and others contain several different pockets. Generally speaking, a hidden waistband pocket is usually suitable for carrying keys or a driver’s license while you’re working out to prevent them from getting lost. Outside pockets are designed to hold smartphones, to keep it handy while you’re at the gym.
If a person wants to keep their options open when it comes to which side of the body they carry their smartphone, then they’re probably going to want to get one of the two-pocket styles currently available. If that’s not important, then consider getting a pair of leggings that have both an inner waistband pocket and an outer pocket, so that you have plenty of space to carry keys, ID, and your smartphone.
