We've put these leggings to the test in a variety of workouts, ranging in intensity from easy (hi, hot girl walks) to incredibly tough HIIT workouts, long runs, cycling classes and more, then monitored how they wore over time. Based on that wear and tear, we were able to report on which leggings are the best and for what workouts. Our editors tested the brand’s many best-selling styles (ten, to be exact). When we tried them out, we took into consideration their wear through various workouts over months (at least) and are here to report our absolute favorites. The editors who tested range in body types, fitness levels, material preferences and more. lululemon leggings are made for working out (even though sometimes they're so comfy we lounge in them, too), from yoga and Pilates to HIIT, running and weightlifting, so they're engineered to withstand mostly all exercises.
Some of our favorite fabric features? The four-way stretch with added Lycra for shape retention, sweat-wicking capabilities and quick-drying fabric for those super sweaty workouts. Spoiler alert: the lululemon Align leggings (starting at $88) are our top overall pick because they're just so good for everyday wear and sweaty yoga classes because they're so damn flexible.
