Best Leggings to wear to the gym
Malky swears by Lululemon Fast and Free, says she’s hasn’t found anything that compares. I asked her what is so good about them? Her answer, “they hold you in and dry fast – you don’t walk around soggy”. Strong points for the lululemon indeed.
Tzippi claims that the Athleta Ultimate Stash are the only leggings she feels comfortable in (she’s tried them all!!). Why? They do what they need to do!! Elky agrees that they are excellent leggings.
Leah likes the Amazon dupes, they are sorta copies of the Lululemon. They are significantly cheaper and some people like them even better!!
My favorites are the Sweaty Betty! I love them they hold me in but are still super comfortable. And they make me look thin! What more can a girl ask for.
Just a few things to know about leggings in general:
Length: There are three lengths overall capri, 7/8, Full length. If you are the type to get really hot go with the capri’s. I prefer the 7/8 because I don’t want my leg to show when I’m running an errand post workout (just my personal preference) but I find the full length a touch too long for me. It’s really just a comfort thing.
Pattern: Leggings can be fun! Sweaty Betty in particular has some great prints, I personally prefer solids (OK, solid black!) because I feel thinner in them. But if you have the confidence (or the legs) go for it, have fun!! It’s the gym!
Price: Most of the leggings I posted here are pricey, I think it is a worth it investment. If you want comfort, style, and a good fit (don’t want your pants to be shifting while you jump around) you’re going to have to spend. The cheap leggings you can pick up anywhere will be saggy, loose, uncomfortable while working out, and probably won’t hold you in well.
Do you need a T-shirt to go with the leggings? We’ll get to that too!!
