OK, brace yourselves, because these product picks aren’t cheap. But they’re worth every penny. At $98 a pair, you’d expect a lot from leggings, but we can promise you that these deliver. Invest in one of these styles to make working out fun again (after all, nothing inspires you to do a few more squats quite like seeing what your butt would look like after, well, a few more squats!). Our two favorite leggings that take 5 pounds off, instantly: Lucy Perfect Core Legging (shown right) Cult fitness apparel brand Lucy created the Perfect Core leggings with ultra-compressive powermax™ material and a slimming xBAR (strategically placed mesh insets to smooth and shape problem areas). The result is a jiggle-free, smooth, sucked-in look where we all need it most: The hips, abs, butt, and thighs. You’ll want to wear these everywhere — not just during workouts. Spanx® Shaping Compression Close-Fit Pant Spanx® is known for making body-slimming products, so their new active wear line can only be described with one word: Awesome. Imagine that same feeling of smooth, compressed booties and jiggle-free thighs that you get wearing traditional Spanx®, but in a sleek, athletic legging. It makes so much sense, we only wish we had them sooner. Try them, and they’re guaranteed to become your go-to pants for the gym.
