All the Yoga Pants You’ll Want to Wear All The Time

We get it: not everyone wears yoga pants just to do yoga, and we're definitely not here to judge you for wearing workout pants to Netflix binge instead of namaste. But that doesn't mean you won't still want a flattering and well-fitting pair of performance leggings for the times when you do feel the motivation to downward dog. Which is why we've whittled down Amazon's best options to find the perfect pairs for running (even if it's just running errands), barre, yoga, indoor cycling, and sure, the occasional movie marathon on the couch.

01

Amazing Value

Amazing Value

These four-way stretch leggings feel and look like much more expensive brands, but they're only a fraction of the cost. The lightweight sweat-wicking fabric makes them ideal for hot yoga, and a deep side pocket fits an iPhone and a few dollar bills, so you can also wear them for an outdoor jog, even in the hot summer months.  

02

Best High-Waisted

Best High-Waisted

The rib-cage hugging height of these leggings mean they're ideal for a hot yoga or barre class where you just want to wear a sports bra as a top. We love that the wide waistband is ultra flattering and gives a little tummy control, and the 17 different shades make choosing just one a difficult life decision. 

03

Best Patterns

These compression leggings aren't just awesome for making you feel supported while doing burpees—they also come in an amazing array of patterns that are stylish enough to take you straight from a boot camp class to the bar for a much deserved Bloody. From pink camouflage to on-trend tie dye, there's a chance to show off your personality with every pair.

04

Best Fit

Best Fit

This brand constantly gets compared to Lululemon, and for good reason: they're high quality and can work just about any kind of activity. But the real advantage with these leggings is that you can pick your size (from XS to 3X), waistband (cross, high, or medium), and length (short, regular, or tall) for a just-right fit that was literally made for you.

05

Most Versatile

Most Versatile

There isn't a sport that these compression pants won't work for: they're sweat-wicking, quick dry, and will get you through any intensity of workout, even if it's just getting yourself to the grocery store on a Saturday. They hug your legs like no other, and no matter where you wear them, you'll feel like a total athlete.

06

Best Sellers

These leggings are impossible not to love: they're universally flattering (thanks to a wide waistband that will not slip down, no matter how many downward-facing dogs you do), are opaque even when you're bending over, and they come in a kaleidoscopic range of colors, from fuchsia to purple to heather gray. No wonder they're Amazon best-sellers. 

07

Best Plus Size

Best Plus Size

Women everywhere have been praising how great these stylish leggings, which come in sizes 1X-5X, fit and feel during yoga, spin, and beyond. The fabric is super-soft and comfy, and we swear the side detailing makes legs look super long. The wide waistband is another plus, or as one happy Amazon reviewer puts it, "No muffin top with these!"

08

Best Shorts

Best Shorts

When just going outside feels like walking into a hot yoga studio, these shorts, which come in 14 fun shades, are a smart and stylish way to stay cool. (And the generous inseam means they won't ride up, even during a long run.) Bonus: there are still three pockets for stashing your keys and ID.

09

Bootcut Capri

Bootcut Capri

These flared capris receive tons of praise from reviewers for their relaxed feel. As one Amazon purchaser says, "They fit nice and love the fact that they are not skin tight like leggings." The looser fabric means you could wear them to a yoga class just as easily as you could a movie marathon, and the silhouette is universally flattering.
