If you’re breaking a sweat at the gym or running errands, you need a pair of women’s workout leggings that can keep up.

From yoga-specific options to high-waisted, textured and printed styles that boost your booty and look like regular pants, these leggings are your new favorite sweat-proof staple for workouts and daily wear.
Boost Your Confidence with Booty Leggings: A Guide to Style and Comfort in Athletic Fashion
We’ve consulted with fitness pros and class instructors (who teach everything from sweaty HIIT to meditative yoga) and tested leggings ourselves to find the most comfortable, durable options.

We also looked for fabric that’s breathable, soft and dries quickly after washing.
These leggings are loved for their comfy waistband and squat-proof fabric, which stays opaque even when you bend over. They’re also highly rated for their seriously flattering fit and versatility, with users saying they’re “great for yoga, hiking or even running errands” thanks to their stretchy yet supportive material. They also show little to no shrinkage after laundering and are easy to wash.
These leggings from ZUTY are the number one bestseller in Amazon’s Workout & Training Leggings category and a favorite of shoppers. They’re made with a brushed, matte and fully opaque fabric that’s soft and stretches for a tight fit, plus they have pockets. You’ll want to act fast, though: popular colors regularly sell out.
