We're always on the hunt for the best leggings on the market, and we never back down from putting them to the test. However, if you're short or petite, you know how difficult it is to find comfortable leggings that fit you properly. Some are way too long and cause that extra fabric to bunch up around your ankles, while others have a waistband so high that it almost ends up reaching your bust. Ill-fitting leggings can not only look awkward, but also feel distracting during a workout. Fortunately, we found the best leggings for petite bodies for every workout, whether you're a Pilates pro or prefer a high-intensity exercise, like running or spin class.

We found several options with specific short or petite sizing, including a few that let you choose your ideal inseam. There's ones with super-flattering crossover waistbands to accentuate your curves while staying securely in place, and a few leggings with pockets too. We even discovered a handful of compression leggings to provide a body-hugging fit. If you're on the shorter side and searching for a new pair of flattering leggings, brands like Old Navy, Lululemon, and Girlfriend Collective have solid options. Shop our top picks ahead.
