You guys, these Zella leggings are seriously the best workout leggings ever. No joke. I’ve been searching for a good pair of leggings to work out in, specifically for running, and I hadn’t found a good pair until these. I even splurged on a pair of running-specific leggings from a major athletic brand and they would still start to slide down as I ran. This put me off running since I couldn’t really get far enough before I had to stop and pull my leggings up, so annoying. I’ve worked out in these Zella leggings several times now and I LOVE THEM. They are great for general training, running, and yoga.
I think one of the reasons I have a hard timing finding workout leggings that work well for me is because I have wide hips and thick legs. This often leads me to size up in order to get a good fit on the legs and be able to get the leggings over my thighs but then the waist is too big. These Zella leggings don’t give me that problem. They slide over my hips, are perfectly snug in the legs and the waist! Having the additional waist-tie helps secure them so they don’t slide down when I run, although I haven’t found the waist-tie necessary with these because the fit is so great.
They also have a great amount of stretch without being shiny or see through. And they have slant pockets, which I love! They’re super flattering too! I’m definitely ordering a second pair. You can shop them here.
