    1. Oalka leggings that *gasp* actually stay in place. That's right, folks! The secure waistband won't be slipping and sliding .5 seconds into that kickboxing class you bravely signed up for.

    Promising review: "I was a little nervous about them being see-through or not fitting perfectly, BUT I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived and fit PERFECTLY. When I squat they stay put, I don't have to pull them up constantly, AND THEY'RE NOT SEE-THROUGH! Thank goodness, right?! Anyway, in my humble opinion, these are a great investment and well worth the purchase. Plus, I've ordered them in five other colors and they don't get those annoying fabric balls in the inner thigh area after I wash them." β€”Jillian Lehr

    Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 19 colors)

    These are our pick for the best inexpensive leggings on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    2. Core 10 leggings you can customize for a fit that's basically tailored to you. Opt for a high waist, medium waist, or cross waist rise, PLUS choose between short, regular, and tall lengths.


    Promising review: "These leggings are AMAZING. I am 6'0" and it can be really hard to find leggings that are either long enough for my legs OR that have a high enough waist to be considered actually high-waisted on a taller frame. These leggings do both of those things! I usually use leggings for weightlifting, so I needed to make sure these would stay up during squats and other leg dominant motions, and these stayed in place during my whole workout with ease. And one last thing, the fabric on these is super soft, I absolutely love it!" β€”Carolyn

    Price: $45.50+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in two colors)

    3. High-waisted Witkey leggings with designs so gorgeous, you may as well consider 'em a work of watercolor-inspired art. Just be sure to prepare yourself for a slew of compliments from everyone sweating near you in hot yoga.


    Promising review: "Im in love with these dang leggings and am on here ordering more now. The crotch doesn't sag on ya, and there was enough length for the legging to go over my heel and chill. They're not 100% squat-proof, but with some nude or black undies/boyshorts you'll be fine. Just don't shove your butt in anyone's face. Oh, and when you first open them, they'll look like capris; don't lose hope. They stretch like whoa and are SUPER soft." β€”Amazon Customer

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in 36 colors)

    4. Danskin capri leggings you can wear for a consecutive 365 days and they *still* won't show any signs of wear. They'll look brand spankin' new every time you slip 'em on β€” even after being thrown in the wash a bajillion times.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love my Danskin capri leggings! I've been wearing my black pair for a year now and they're still in one piece, no rips or anything after a million wears. I've just recently bought my second pair and can't wait to get them! The material is stretchy, sturdy, and not see-through (which I always have had a problem with other brands). I'm not sure I can live without these leggings!" β€”Gillian Szwec

    Price: $23.98+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in five colors)

    5. Opaque Baleaf ankle leggings that won't yell "SHE'S WEARING POLKA DOT GRANNY PANTIES!" to the entire world. Give a girl a pair of non see-through leggings and she can take over the world.


    AKA they aren't see-through.

    Promising review: "STOP. WHAT. YOU'RE. DOING. AND. BUY. THESE. LEGGINGS. Seriously though, these are the most comfortable leggings I have ever owned. I have three so far, and am definitely going to buy more! They are not see-through, sit high at the waist, and they stay put!" β€”Laura Z.

    Price: $17.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors)

    6. 90 Degree yoga leggings so great, you'll be saying "ommmm these are absolutely perfect" after just one wear. The designs are gorgeous, the fit is magical, and they remain amazing after a million turns in the washer.


    Promising review: "These are my favorite workout leggings ever. I have tried many different kinds and these beat them all! They're high-waisted, stay in place, fit well, are available in nice designs, and last wash after wash. The price makes them even more perfect." β€”poochiee

    Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 31 colors)

    7. High-waisted ruffle hem leggings that call for a darn PHOTO SHOOT, you trendy minx! Get ready for a slew of compliments. They are a-coming.

    But seriously, you can dress these up or down.

    Promising review: "These pants are so cute! I love the stretchy material, and the cute ruffles at the hems make it look different. They are a bit high-waisted, which I love, and they're opaque enough so you're sure your underwear won't peek through. You can easily just slip these on, and you'll be good to go! Plus, they're very comfortable and fit true to size." β€”Corinth

    Price: $11.89+ (available in sizes XS-L and in three colors)

    8. High-waisted TSLA leggings that are comparable to bottoms from pricier brands BUT REJOICE! These babies are *significantly* more affordable and thank heavens, because we are all on a very humble budget.


    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off of Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and love their Align pants, but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. These remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. But this isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft, and it pills and gets caught on everything. These have light compression, give a nice booty lift, and are not see-through...even when squatting. I love love love these and am going to order several more! I actually kind of want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on leggings in the past when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost. If you're a Lulu lover, you should really give these a chance!" β€”Ariel Parker

    Price: $15.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 44 colors)

    9. Hue cotton leggings equipped with temperature control technology to prevent you from a) freezing, or b) overheating. I guess you can say these leggings are like April 25 β€” they're not too hot and they're not too cold.


    If you didn't catch the above Miss Congeniality reference, please know that your education system has failed you.

    Promising review: "Just got my sixth pair because I wear them all day every day. I've tried so many other brands, but they all end up ripping and getting stretched out as the day goes on. Hue leggings are sooo comfy, not too thick, not too thin, made from a soft cotton, fit like a glove, and stay on no matter how much you move around in them during the day. Plus, the color does not fade away no matter how many times I wash and dry them. They are AWESOME." β€”CK

    Price: $16.90+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in five colors)

    10. High-waisted compression leggings that have a super tight fit, which is said to promote blood circulation and speed up post-workout recovery. Sore muscles? A thing of the past!,

    Promising review: "These are, hands down, the best athleisure pants I own. I have FOREVER been on the search for comfortable leggings that don't slide down, and almost every pair I own find a way to slide down and I'm always having to pull them up. Even more expensive ones! But seriously, these bad boys will change your life. They REALLY compress and make you look thinner from your ankles to your waist, they DON'T slide down at all, and are thick enough that they aren't see-through. The only cons I would say is they are true compression pants, so they are a little bit of a challenge to get on. But, once they are on, they are on. Will purchase again. They are the BEST." β€”Candace Nixon

    Price: $27.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in nine colors)

    11. Hue mid-rise leggings designed with a comfortable, extra wide waistband that won't uncomfortably dig into your belly button every time you sit down.


    Promising review: "Best leggings ever! These leggings are thick enough that they're not see-through, but not too thick to make them obnoxiously hot. Really great for fall/spring! The thick waistband at the top is really comfortable and the length is also perfect." β€”Brenna Ferguson

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in four colors)

    12. Buttery soft brushed leggings available in a bunch of fun, vibrant patterns worthy of the 4,000+ rave reviews they've gotten.,

    Promising review: "These leggins are fantastic. The fabric is so soft and stretches without ever becoming sheer, and they have so many cool designs and beautiful, rich colors. But it's the fit that amazes me.! I hate leggings that dig into my waist (when most leggings are large enough in the waist to not dig, then they are baggy in the legs especially at the knees and calves). But these leggings are a perfect fit. They don't dig at all, but they don't sag or bag anywhere either. AMAZING! I've already ordered more in different patterns." β€”Suze

    Price: $11.99+ (available in two "one size fits most" options for sizes XS-L and 14-24 and in 45 colors)

    13. Ododos ankle leggings with a tiny compartment similar to Gretchen Wiener's hair β€” it can hide your biggest secrets. (Any by biggest secrets, I mean your phone and keys.)


    These leggings also come in capri length and a whole bunch of other solid AND space dye colors. Woo!

    Promising review: "These are possibly the best leggings ever. They fit well, the pocket is secure, and the material is nice and thick. This is definitely a must-have for every wardrobe." β€”J. A. Afzelius

    Price: $18.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 33 colors)

    14. Ponte Rafaella knit leggings currently disguising themselves as work pants. They may look like your business meeting uniform, but GASP! These are far more comfortable.


    Promising review: "HOLY COW, these are such comfy pants. I felt like I had my jammies on all day! They look like slacks, but still manage to feel like leggings. The fit is true to size and they're a great 'business comfy' style option." β€”Megan R.

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes 4-16 and in three colors)

    15. Galaxy print leggings designed for intergalactic travel, so definitely make ~space~ for these in your suitcase. Vibrant colors + buttery soft material = perfection.


    Or just wear 'em on the spaceship. Up to you.

    Promising review: "I love these! They feel good on my skin, aren't see-through, and they make my butt look...out of this world. The only downside is that my boyfriend is really tired of me making that joke every time I wear these." β€”Hanna

    Price: $8.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in 44 colors)

    16. Splurge-worthy Lysse vegan leggings perfect for a night out. Pair these comfortable babies with some heels, your favorite blouse, and that's it! You'll be ready for that long overdue dinner date in no time.


    Promising review: "The best leggings you will ever own and worth every single penny! This is my second pair of the LYSSE vegan leather leggings and they do not disappoint. These are incredibly high quality, hold their shape, and have a very firm fit." β€”Lake MI Girl

    Price: $54+ (available in sizes XS-XL)

    17. Hue denim leggings that β€” GASP β€” really and truly look like jeans. Who says we have to compromise comfort to look like we actually tried this AM!?


    PLUS! These are available in short, regular, and tall lengths for a tailored-to-you kind of fit.

    Promising review: "These have become my go-to pants. I have several colors of these denim-style leggings because they look like jeans, are easy to pack, and feel a lot more lightweight than jeans. For my body type, they're very flattering and I like that they have pockets! Plus, they don't leave me feeling 'exposed'. I've introduced them to several of my taller friends, and they're just as hooked as I am!" β€”Martha G.

    Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X, in short, regular, and tall lengths, and in 14 colors)
