I’ve been focused on my health and working out daily. I have been using old cheap leggings to run in and honestly they are losing their shape quickly.

Athleta is my go to. Hold everything “in”, don’t have to adjust and pockets big enough for phones. They also last WAY longer than my lulus, just as another reference!

like

I work out 5-6 days per week and have Athleta leggings that are over 10 years old and still look good. Just keep them out of the dryer and avoid fabric softeners- they will retain their shape and last for years

There’s a ton of really good Lululemon dupes on Amazon. Look up colorful koala, baleaf, crz yoga. And Costco!

like

Love baleaf - I’ve had pairs that have lasted for years with all my running and lifting!

If you’re putting your leggings in the dryer and washing with detergent after every wear, that’s going to cause them to lose their shape much quicker. A quick rinse in cool water and air-dry most days should be plenty, and only wash with laundry soap for delicates once every couple of weeks.

I’m cheap and I buy mine at Walmart. I’ve had really high waisted ones that have really good support around the waist. I’ve purchased from adidas/Nike and when I’m running, they tend to move around a lot more.

Lululemon, Athleta, and Colorfulkoala are my go tos. All have been great quality 👌🏼

I have a couple pairs that I really like that I found at TJ Maxx. They are made by a brand called Yogalicious and they have pockets!!

Sweaty Betty for me! Funky designs, wash so well, stretchy but supportive, POCKETS, wouldn't buy any others now no joke.

Have tried probably 15ish different brands over the past 5 years (at every price points). Gap leggings are my fav- do/have everything that you’re describing.

Adding another vote for Athleta

Costco surprisingly

Pay up for the lulus or athleta. I work out 5x week and have lulus from 2016 that I still wear weekly. Lulu will also replace damaged leggings for free

Athleta has exactly what you’re looking for

GapFit is honestly just as great as my expensive LuLus and Nike leggings. Also love Girlfriend Collective and Athleta!

Hi all, I bought a pair of Rainer tights and to the say they least I’m in love. Thanks for the recs. Been out running in them for the last 4 days. Can’t wait to see Black Friday sales
