First of all, whoever said that leggings aren't pants lied. Whether you've been perfecting the art of dressing them up and down for years or you newly discovered your love of leggings during quarantine, there is no denying their greatness.
And one pair that stands out above the rest is the IUGA high waist yoga pants on Amazon, which cost less than $30.
These everyday leggings have a high-rise waistband with control so they don't slide down and they feature a soft material with four-way stretch that's great for compression and support.
Oh and did I mention they have HIDDEN POCKETS?? The pockets are on the side of the leg and the perfect size to hold your phone during a hike or a run (or just while you're moving around the house).
PLUS, they're available in 27 different colors! So, you can get a pair to match your gym shoes, another one to go with your fave hoodie, one in plain black (of course), and a couple bright colors just to spice things up.
Marked as an Amazon best-seller, they have 4.7 stars with over 22,000 customer reviews! 🔥🔥🔥
And if you're still not convinced, here's what some of the reviewers had to say:
"I’ve been searching for a LONG time on Amazon for the perfect leggings. I wanted high quality like the expensive Lululemon or P’tula without spending a lot of money. After returning many leggings from other sellers, I came across these. I workout a lot and have tried many leggings and these by far are the most comfortable to work out in! They def pass the squat test, are not see through at ALL, and have convenient pockets that I didn’t think I needed but love. My only request is that this company make 7/8 leggings as I think the style is cuter. In the meantime I just roll the bottom on the pants up like in the photo. Again, great product and I’ll def order in another color! Truly unbeatable for the price and quality!" —Alexa
"I LOVE these yoga pants. They feel like they let my skin breathe, unlike some of the others I own....in case you’re wondering they aren’t see through. I did pay attention to another review about washing instructions which I thought might be a deal breaker, but I gave them a shot I have had no issues when washing on gentle and air drying. Now that I’ve given them a few wash-and-wear test runs I need to order more. One pair is not enough." —V. H.
"These are awesome! Hiked all over the Rockies in these! The pocket is clutch for your phone! Waistband is tight so they don't stretch and fall after a few washes but also not too tight where you get a stomach ache. Length was perfect." —The best things according to me
