I am a VERY active person! On average, I work out 5-7 times per week in San Francisco. Exercise has always been a priority in my life. I played sports throughout my youth and running has always been a favorite hobby. In fact, it was at a “running club” in Baton Rouge, LA where Jonathan and I totally hit it off! Anyway, if you follow me on Instagram, then you’re probably used to me sharing my collection of pink stretchy pants…but what pair is my favorite?! This is a very loaded question for a field hockey player, Bar Method addict, and F45 connoisseur like myself. Allow me to explain!
K-Deer is home to the world’s most colorful exercise pants. But aside from their bold looks, they feature a seamless front, and SUPER high waist – great muffin top control. They’re available in capri, 7/8 (aka petite girl friendly – I’m 5 feet), and ankle length. I wear these pants constantly to the Bar Method and I think they would also perform well in yoga and pilates classes. Consider this your warning: compliments will roll in when you walk down the street in these standout designs. Read more about ’em here. Fit: True to size – as seen in XS capri length.
The “bum-sculping” pants by Sweaty Betty are the real deal. They suck you in in all the right places while simultaneously accentuating your curves. The material is thick and provides excellent rear coverage…like I wear them with crop tops and am not-self-conscious of dimpling or the appearance of cellulite. I’m obsessed with the 7/8 length (they fit me like regular ankle length leggings) as well as the handy side pocket perfect for your phone! But don’t take my word for it, get a pair here and take them for a test drive at your barre or F45 class. Fit: True to size – as seen in XS 7/8 length.
How is this my first pair of All Yoga leggings?! When I slip into these buttery things I forget I am even wearing ’em. They feel like an extension of your body. Anyway, I have been living in this blush pair and I’m V impressed with the coverage. Have you ever tried on a pair of light colored leggings only to grimace at the sight of rippling skin? I have…but NOT with this pair. Hallelujah! I wear these hot pant to the Bar Method, on the plane, and out to lunch. The high-waist airlift leggings double as chic loungewear. Fit: True to size – as seen in XS 7/8 length.
Whoa, whoa, WHOA! I cannot believe the quality and comfort of these Amazon “knock off” workout pants. I had my doubts but the 4.5 star reviews convinced me to give them a try. For nearly a QUARTER of the cost of the others, these leggings are suitable for all of your sporty activities. I’ve worn them at the barre, for a jog, and to the sweatiest class of my life, F45. They passed the test with flying colors. I can assure you you will not find a more versatile, attractive, and comfortable set for only $45. Fit: True to size – as seen in XS 7/8 length.
