Sometimes the best way to stay fit is to get activewear that you’re actually excited to move in. There’s nothing worse than trying to squeeze into an old pair of workout leggings, only to find that wearing it makes your lack of activity literally come to the forefront of your waistband. We all deserve to feel incredible as we charge after an active lifestyle. And what better way to get inspired than with a fabulous pair of Lululemon Leggings?
I personally used to think that Lululemon was wildly overpriced. But after going through several pairs of cheaper leggings and spending more on them collectively than I would have on a pair of great Lululemons, I realized the value of investing in leggings that are truly wonderful and lasting. After I got my first pair, I was a believer. Then I got my second pair, and my third a little after that. Then I donated all my old leggings that I stopped wearing. I have fewer clothes now, but I genuinely need less because what I have works so well and lasts so long. Chuck out that pile of old leggings and invest in a great pair of Lululemons today to help you stay fit and feel like a snack.
This list includes everything from leggings that feel like a lush, second skin, to others that are high performance and ultra sweat absorbent. All of them are incredibly comfortable, will help you stay fit, and are perfect for keeping an active lifestyle while feeling comfortable and fabulous all the while.
1. Align Pant II 25″
These are my absolute favorite pair of Lulu Lemons that I own. They are buttery-soft, light on the skin, and cozy enough to curl up in bed with. They are Lululemon’s softest design, using their Nulu fabric which is ultra-lightweight and luscious to the touch. It’s minimal in design, so no pockets, extra seams, panels, key loops, or any other fancy features. But it’s the simple, soft everyday legging that we all need. These are the leggings you’ll find yourself wearing all day, every day. They’re perfect for lounging, traveling, or for low-impact activities like yoga and pilates. Make these a staple in your wardrobe and you’ll never go back.
2. Invigorate High-Rise Tight 25″
Where the Align Pant II is the cozy choice for lounging at home, the Invigorate High-Rise Tight is the cozy choice to stay fit and work out in. They’re formulated for high-intensity training with lots of stretch and hold, yet still wildly comfortable that if you wanted to hang out in them all day you easily could. Made with the Everlux fabric, they are made for high-intensity exercise- spinning, Crossfit, HIIT workouts, etc. They have an ultra silky, cool feel on the inside, and a velvety brushed feeling on the outside. The fabric is delightfully thick (no peep shows when you bend over in class!), but stretchy enough to move comfortably in. They are quick-drying, stretchy, and are even complete with deep pockets (YAY). Crush your most intense workouts and stay fit in these!
3. Fast and Free Tight 28″
These leggings are perfect for runners. They are made for high-intensity activity just like the Invigorate High Rise Tight, but they are much lighter in design allowing for more range of motion. This is perfect for those who don’t want the high compression element in their leggings and prefer a less restrictive material. Made with the Nulux fabric, these leggings have a second skin feeling while being ultra cooling and quick drying. Also, they have deep, wonderful pockets that fit your phone perfectly (even if you chose the largest version of your smart phone). If you’re wanting a light, buttery soft feel that allows a wide range of motion, supports high-intensity cardio, and is ultra cooling- these are the leggings for you.
4. Wunder Under High-Rise Tight 25″ Luon
These are LuluLemon’s classic yoga leggings. Made with their Luon fabric, they’re soft and lightweight so you can get that perfect downward dog, but durable and absorbant for those hot yoga classes. They have a lovely, breathable feel and allow a wide range of motion. But the best part? Their luscious, second-skin feel. If you’re a yogi these are absolutely the leggings for you.
5. Free To Speed High Rise Tight
Lululemon’s newest legging, the Free to Speed High Rise Tight! This is another great option for runners or bikers, made from the quick-drying, Nulux fabric. This is the same fabric featured in #3’s Fast and Free Tight, so it comes with all the same features of that lightweight feel, buttery soft touch, and high range-of-motion support. The difference with this tight is it basically comes with more bells and whistles that make your time outside easier. It features even more pockets, and comes with loops that you can thread your keys and sweatshirt through if you get hot. If you do a lot of your cardio outside, and often have a lot in your hands, these are the perfect leggings for you!
6. Keep Moving Pant 7/8 High Rise
Okay so these next two are technically pants and not leggings, but they feel so good and are so dang cute that they had to be included. The Keep Moving Pant is the *perfect* outdoor activewear pant- whether for hiking, camping, backpacking, or gallivanting in the rain. They are incredibly comfortable and the soft waistline hits at the perfect spot. They are tapered down the leg in the most flattering way, and the subtle drawstring easily tucks under a shirt so it doesn’t even look like you’re wearing joggers. They also have them in multiple colors if you get as obsessed with them as I did.
7. Essential High Rise Trouser 25”
And finally, the Essential High Rise Trouser. These fabulous pants are perfect for moving in all day long while looking office-ready at a moment’s notice. Made with four-way stretch, Warpstreme fabric, they are durable yet ultra lightweight at the same time. They are extremely comfortable and have ALL the pockets (even a small, secret pocket!). These pants are perfect for those who lead an incredibly busy life and don’t know when they’ll have a chance to stop, change, and carve out that time to work out. Stay fit and make your active time a seamless transition with this slick little number.
