    We've recently discovered an amazingly delicious recipe (thanks to the cast of SNL) that we will surely pass on to our children.

    NBC Studios

    You start with a pair of buttery-soft leggings, add a cozy blanket, and finish it with the soothing heat of your roaring laptop and overused phone. In just a few seconds you'll end up with a couch panini so perfect, Julia Child would have asked for the recipe.

    The key ingredient for this mouthwatering recipe is the leggings — they really have to be perfect. Cue Core 10, the leggings that will feel and look amazing on ANYONE!!

    Why are they so perfect? Because you can build your leggings based on the waist style, length, and fit you love! They're also available in a wide range of sizes (XS-3XL).

    A few BuzzFeed staffers have already tried them out, and here's how we know they're the perfect leggings:

    They offer a variety of customizable cuts so you can design them to your liking.

    "These are one of my favorite pair of leggings because of all the opportunities to customize them. I love all things high-waisted, and I especially love that these have the option for a cross-waist design, which comes up pretty high and gives these leggings a unique look I am obsessed with. I also went for the straight-leg and full-length options, in the hope these would fit more like yoga pants, and they do! They are super comfy, and the material is thicker than your average legging, so they are perfect to wear to yoga. I also like wearing them around the house on a rainy day when I just want to be cozy.

    These fit true to size for me — I’m a size 7, almost 5’8”, and the medium regular length fits me perfectly. I was worried the regular length might be too short, but it’s just right; so definitely don’t order the tall option unless you really need the extra length (they also have a short option BTW)! I have washed these once so far, and they held up just fine. I would recommend these to anyone who wants a dependable pair of black leggings or yoga pants, especially if you want to try out a different cut or style legging. You can choose your length, cut, waistline, and leg length with these, which makes them one of the most versatile pairs of leggings you can buy on the internet IMO!" —Harper Hendrickson

    Their super-secure compression material keeps everything right where you want it to be.

    "I have a lot of regrets in life, like why did I make that really awkward joke in a group text that no one acknowledged or forget to put on sunscreen before I went on a boat? Now I can add to the list that I wish I would've been wearing workout leggings to the office for the nearly two years I've been at BuzzFeed (btw, our office is ~super~ casual). The leggings that make me wanna scream WHY?! at the heavens about that particular mistake are these Core 10 beauts.

    They come in my favorite length (capri), hit the sweet spot in between mid- and high-rise (my belly button), and totally hold in my gut without feeling like a sausage casing. Yes, these are stretchy, but they're also *compression* so they hold everything where you want it to be and, for me, created the illusion that I've been doing squats on the reg. With other pairs of compression pants, I've experienced a lot of waistband roll-down, which is annoying as hell when you already feel like you're dying in a spin class. But despite their compression abilities (if that's important to you), they're comfy enough to stay parked at my desk all day. They don't have a ton of exciting bells and whistles like $90 designer leggings might, but they'd make a swell staple for sweaty and lazy activities alike." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Their comfy AF waistband can be customized so it sits and stays exactly where you want it.

    "I carry my weight in my tummy area, and high-waist leggings will often sit above my waist perfectly until I make even the slightest reach — then catapult down my midsection, leaving me to do the tug-and-pull dance. It's the worst! I mean, the whole point of wearing leggings is to be comfy and not have to worry about anything, and yet here I am tugging and twisting to get my pants back to where they should be.

    So when I picked out these Core 10 leggings, I thought it was great that there were options to select waist type — but I am a creature of habit, and I know what I like, so I went with the high-waist fit. Despite my skepticism, I was optimistic that these leggings might know their place (and stay there). AND GUYS!!! THEY DID! It's like the clouds parted, the heavens sung, and the sun shined down on me. Not only are they totes comfy, but the length is perfect for me (I'm 5'4" and got the 7/8th crop leggings), the material is thick enough to keep everything where it needs to be but not so thick you're burning up (I wore them in muggy 90-degree temps and didn't even break a sweat), AND the waist stayed in place (even during a pretty intensive barre class). I'm just so impressed with these bad boys!" —Elena Garcia
