Picture this scenario: You're in a yoga class really getting into the groove and feeling yourself, and boom, your leggings are starting to roll down at the waistband. You think, "Eh, maybe I can get away with it," but the longer you hold your pose or try to push forward with the flow, the more and more uncomfortable it gets. You can't stop thinking about adjusting your leggings!
If you know this exact feeling, then you know how annoying it is. And this can happen in any type of workout. When your activewear doesn't fit right, is uncomfortable, or has to be adjusted with every move you make, it can really disrupt your workout and leave you frustrated.
The solution to this problem is actually pretty simple: invest in a pair of high-waisted leggings. The wide band will stay put, and if it has the right compression, you'll feel extra supported. Plus, they look flattering on just about anyone. Need to be convinced? Take a look at some of our favorite high-waisted yoga pants below.
You can wear these leggings to any type of workout—really. They're compressive and squat-proof and have handy pockets for your stuff. If you don't know already, all of Girlfriend Collective's leggings are made from recycled water bottles.
These leggings were designed for yoga, but they still have Nike's amazing Dri-Fit technology, so you don't have to worry about sweating during a hot yoga session. There are subtle lace details at the ankle and on the legs for breathability.
