Sick of transparent workout leggings that fall down, ride up, chafe, stick – or manage to do all these things at the same time? When working out, you deserve to feel comfortable and secure, no matter your body shape and size. Below, we’ve rounded up the best plus-size, squat-proof workout leggings that cater to a range of inclusive sizes…
The Snag Tights 7/8 Leggings (£25.99) are available up to a size 38. They feature a high waistband for security and comfort, along with handy pockets that will actually fit your whole phone! We also love that they are fully opaque and ‘squat-proof’ (meaning no underwear will be on display!).
If you’re on the shorter side, these leggings will be full length. If you’re taller, these will have a cropped effect, so try the Full Length Leggings if you prefer full coverage.
Available up to size 36, the activewear leggings from Yours Clothing (£23.99) are designed to fit and flatter your curves thanks to a high rise elasticated waistband, and full-length design.
There are some fun fabrics to choose from too, including leopard print and a tropical palm pattern – or you might prefer the plainer grey or black marl fabric!
Fabletics carries a huge range of size-inclusive (and style-inclusive!) workout leggings, at affordable prices – once you sign up for the flexible VIP membership, which allows you to get 2 pairs of leggings for £24 every month. That’s just £12 a pair – bargain!
We love the Anywhere High-Waisted Moto leggings, which are made with revolutionary Motion365 fabric. This is designed to give you all the sculpting benefits of high compression with maximum breathability.
Fabletics also has a handy feature on its website that allows you to view the leggings (or other workout garments) on a range of models with different sizes and body shapes.
The PureMove+ Tight Leggings from Reebok (£74.95) are available up to a size 4XL. Designed to complement your body’s unique shape, these leggings are super flattering and comfortable. They also boast a high-rise waist for full coverage.
They also benefit from Motion Sense Technology, which provides targeted support that adapts to your movement. The fabric firms up during high-impact activities and relaxes during low-impact activities.
These versatile tights from adidas (£60) are made from sustainable, recycled materials and are built to provide comfort and support while you work out. The water-absorbent materials are also designed to wick sweat from your body, to keep you feeling dry as you move.
We absolutely love the bold print on the leggings – you can also get an equally-fabulous matching sports bra! If you prefer neutral shades, adidas also creates a wide range of plus-size leggings in varying patterns, prints and colours. Available up to 4XL.
The huge range of workout leggings from Lucy Locket Loves (£33) are available up to size 26. Each pair comes with a super-elasticated high waistband for a comfy and secure fit. You can also choose from standard full-length or three-quarter length capri leggings.
All leggings have a handy zip-up pocket to keep your phone safe and secure while you work out. We also love the wide range of patterns and colours available. There really is something to suit everyone’s style!
The range of workout leggings from Tala Zinnea (£42) are made from sustainable fabrics, including 92% up-cycled Polyamide, and come in sizes up to XL (20)*. We love the range of on-trend colours available: including a pale green ‘Mint’, a creamy ‘Latte’, and an olive green ‘Four Leaf Clover’ shade!
These leggings have been crafted to provide the perfect balance between compression and stretch, holding you in place throughout any workout. The high rise waistband is perfectly shaped, contoured and supported, designed to flatter.
*We are hoping they might bring out even more inclusive sizes soon!
Complete with a high waist fit and durable stretch fabrication, these plus-size leggings from Evans Boutique (£24) deliver on style and comfort.
We love the range of patterns available, including a sassy leopard print design! Available up to size 32.
The Love Leggings Focus 7/8 Yoga Leggings (£28) have maximum flexibility with minimum transparency. The 7/8’s length, is perfect if your legs are on the shorter side. Alternatively, if you’re taller, they create a cute cropped look, finishing just above the ankle.
With a no-fuss seam design for zero interference, along with a flattering ‘V’ shaped waistband for a perfect bum-shaping silhouette, these leggings are comfy, cute and practical! There is even a hidden waistband pocket, perfect for your keys and other valuables.
These workout leggings from Domyos (£19.99) were designed by former professional surfer and Olympic ambassador, Laura Crane, who knows the power of sport and how staying active can make you feel physically and mentally great.
Laura has designed these leggings to help you stay active – whether you’re in the gym or pulling yoga poses on the beach! With sizes up to 2XL, cute colour options, body sculpting, moisture management and flat seams to prevent chafing, these are a great, budget-friendly option for plus size workout leggings.
