I have owned my fair share of workout leggings, and I have some pretty strict criteria when it comes to what I look for in a tight. Firstly, I generally prefer full-length or 7/8 tights versus a crop. I like the material to be flexible but still hold me in, I don't love side pockets, and if they're not high-waisted, I'm not wearing them. The other challenge for me is that I like to do a lot of different workouts. I want a pair that I can wear both when I'm getting sweaty on the spin bike and when I'm in the middle of a tricky Pilates flow. Well, I found my perfect pair, and it's the Lululemon In Movement Tight ($98).
These pants do it all. The fabric is soft, flattering, and sweat-wicking, a trio that's much more difficult to come by than it should be. I feel confident every time I put them on, and I know that no matter what activity I'm doing, I'm covered in these leggings. The large back pocket can store my phone and keys, which is always a plus. I love these pants so much, I bough two more pairs. If you're looking for the ultimate legging, this is it.
