As a fitness editor, I'm always on the hunt for my next favorite pair of workout leggings. And currently, it's Zella's Live-In leggings from Nordstrom. If you're unfamiliar with the brand, Zella is one of Nordstrom's native brands including Caslon, BP., Halogen, and Treasure & Bond, and one of the best-selling brands in the Active department. During my days as a Nordstrom employee, I remember hearing customers raving about these signature leggings, but it wasn't until recently that I purchased a pair of my own. As soon as I put them on, I immediately regretted waiting so long to buy them.
To start, the original Live-In legging is incredibly comfortable and flattering. According to its product description, it "supports muscles, smooths curves, and optimizes range of motion," and I couldn't agree more. Its moisture-wicking fabric keeps me cool even during my most intense workouts, and is comfortable enough to lounge in, run errands in, and yes, live in (I'm even wearing them right now). I also love the hidden pocket in the waistband that's actually large enough to stash a credit card and keys.
My two personal favorites are the Live-In 7/8 legging (the perfect length for my 5'2" height) and the Ultrasoft High Waist Leggings (amazingly soft and stretchy).
On top of it being quality material and dryer-friendly, its affordable price is the true selling point. All Zella leggings range from $49 to $59 — quite the deal when you compare the price and quality with other athleisure brands. Most of its products also come in a wide range of sizes from XXS (00) to XXL (20).
Seriously, what's not to love? Take a look at Zella's many Live-In styles ahead!
