The Only Workout Leggings You'll Want to Wear to Your Next Yoga Class

The 15 Best Yoga Pants of 2021, According to Reviews



Choosing the right activewear is so important for your workouts. You're going to want something that's comfortable yet supportive enough so that you can move around confidently and with ease. This is especially true when we're talking about yoga classes. Think about it: You're probably moving in and out of some complicated poses and flows, so you want your activewear to not get in the way but also not slip down or skimp on coverage.

We've already gone through our favorite sports bras to wear during your practice, so today we're going to focus on yoga pants that really do the most. These finds are so comfortable and soft they'll let you be as flexible as possible, but they also feature just the right amount of compression and support so you're not constantly pulling them up. And I have to say you might even find yourself wearing them outside of the studio and/or your yoga mat. Take a look at some options below.

Alo's Airbrush leggings are stretchy and sculpting. I love that they have minimal seams for a very smooth and streamlined look. And it's just a comfortable pair of leggings—I have multiples of this one in different colors.

For a cropped fit, try these from Nordstrom's popular in-house brand Zella. The fabric is moisture-wicking and lightweight.

These tights are designed for both indoor and outdoor yoga practices. They feature a buttery-soft fabric with a three-layer waistband that won't pinch.

If you prefer a bootcut or flared fit, you'll want to take a look at these found on Amazon. They have over 16,000 ratings and 4.5 out of five stars on the retailer, so you know they're trusted. And if you care about storage, you'll be happy to know the leggings feature four pockets: two deep front pockets and two back pockets.

There are no outside seams on these leggings from Beyond Yoga, so you don't have to worry about any chafing or rubbing. It's a completely smooth and seamless look. The five-inch waistband sits at your natural waist comfortably.

Here's another flared option for you. The sporty-stripe waistband is a fun and unique detail. In addition to yoga, these are also perfect for barre, Pilates, CrossFit, and other gym classes.

It's all in the details with these leggings—there's ruched detailing, decorative seaming, and an optional stirrup detail.

Stand out in your yoga class with these leggings that have a satin sheen on the waistband and subtle luster all over the wide-rib material. There's also a hidden pocket to stash small items.

Lululemon's Instill tights are made with the brand's SmoothCover fabric, which feels like second skin and is buttery soft. It's sweat-wicking and quick-drying and has four-way stretch.

The white piping detail on these leggings makes them a little bit more fun and unique.

Not only are these leggings comfortable and supportive, but they also have two side pockets that are big enough to fit your phone, credit cards and ID, and keys. You can travel lightly whenever you wear them.

The drawstring waistband on Girlfriend Collective's leggings helps you customize the fit. The fabric is sweat-wicking, sheer-proof and compressive and made from recycled water bottles.

These leggings from Outdoor Voices are made with the brand's TechSweat fabric, which is lightweight and buttery-soft. 

Madewell's leggings hit at the ankle, so there's a little room to breathe—and if you're short, they'll fit you perfectly, too. The compressive and chafe-free pair also feature a hidden pocket in the waistband.

Nike's yoga tights are made with the brand's Infinalon fabric, which feels soft to the touch. They also have Nike's Dri-Fit technology, so you won't feel all sweaty during classes, especially those hot yoga ones.

If a pair of yoga leggings had a baby with jogger pants, this would be it. This pair features a smooth and flat front waistband, front pockets, and a tapered fit.

If you're looking for an ultra-sculpted fit, look no further than this pair from Sweaty Betty. It will keep you super supported and, best of all, comfortable thanks to a wide and smooth waistband and flatlock seams.

Some leggings can be see-through, but not these—they're stretchy and soft and made of durable fabric. Plus, they feature a smoothing high waistband and a gusset crotch to support movement.

The color-blocking detail is both stylish and modern. These leggings are made of matte tech performance fabric and are breathable and quick-drying.

Don't be turned off by these leggings' name, Naked Feeling. It just means they're so lightweight and stretchy that you won't be weighed down and can move easily.
