Listen, we love expensive activewear as much as the next person. You might be dropping mad money on a pair of leggings or a sports bra, but for the most part, you know that you're getting quality stuff. That being said, some of us can't stock up on 10 pairs of $100 leggings. We like to mix high and low, and luckily, there are some very affordable options that look and work just as good as the expensive ones.
We rounded up some of the best affordable yoga pants out there on the internet below. Namaste.
These look like your average, run-of-the-mill workout leggings, but when you look closer, the subtle perforated details set them apart. There's a small coin pocket in the front so you can stash some cash or a hair tie.
These leggings are described as "squat-proof," meaning you can get into some intricate poses without having to worry about their durability or sheer factor. One reviewer says that it's at the "sweet spot of quality and price."
We like that these compression leggings have slits at the front hem for breathability and comfort. Even better, there's a zip pocket in the back waistband and hidden pockets at the hips. Who needs a gym bag?
If you really want to stand out in yoga class, these camo-print leggings are just the ticket. The high-waisted cut sculpts and provides comfort and support, so you can get into the most challenging pose without worrying about the waistband slipping down.
This colorful pair was made for someone who isn't afraid of a bold pattern. The leggings are made with Aerie's "Feel Cool" fabric, which gives medium support but is super smooth. Reviewers love that the leggings are stretchy yet offer support and are squat-proof.
These are another pair with a fun detail near the ankle. One reviewer wrote, "They're incredibly lightweight, super super soft and silky, and ridiculously stretchy and movable. My first intention for them was for working out and all the squatting and moving around I do makes these even more amazing because they move with your body and there is absolutely no restriction. And they are not see-through!"
Mesh panels seem to not be going anywhere right now, and we can't say we hate it. The cool detail is both stylish and practical—some breathability can make a big difference during a grueling workout. These leggings also come in aqua blue.
