After Years of Searching, I Finally Found My Perfect Leggings
Leggings are a ubiquitous part of every active person's wardrobe; in fact, I can't think of anyone I know who doesn't own at least one pair. They're comfortable and easy to throw on and get out the door. But, all leggings are not created equal, and anyone who loves to work out can get very specific about what they do or don't like in a legging. For me, my ultimate pet peeve is leggings that aren't versatile. I like to do lots of different workouts, and I want to know that if I reach into my drawer and pull out a pair, they'll hold up in Pilates or Spin class. That's why I'm obsessed with the All Access Center Stage Leggings ($98).
Here's why I love these leggings so much: the fit is incredible, and they hold you in without feeling heavy or restrictive, as some other compression leggings tend to do. They're breathable, so great for sweaty activities, but not so light that they're out of the question in the Winter. They're high waisted but don't come up to your rib cage. The waistband is thick but comfortable, so they don't budge no matter what you're doing. In short, these leggings are perfect, and they're worth every penny because I wear them so often. I even find myself doing laundry just so that I can wear them again, which means maybe I should invest in another pair . . .
