Round Up: The Best Yoga Leggings Under $69

If you’re a fan of Lululemon yoga pants, but you’re not a fan of the price, read on.  I’ve got some amazing alternate brands that cost way less than $100!

I don’t consider myself an expert on a lot of things, but if there’s one thing I have world-class guru level knowledge on, it’s leggings.  Leggings are my absolute favorite thing to wear on earth.  They’re better than being naked and if you buy the right ones, they can make your legs and butt look like a million bucks.

Seriously, what’s not to love?

The price?

Yes, I get it.  Leggings can be expensive and while we owe Lululemon for bringing these wonder-pants into our lives, we now have so many sub-$100 options, I’m honestly not sure how they continue to compete in the market.

Speaking of better options, I’ve got a round up of my favorite brands below, and a new one that I haven’t tried yet, but the price is so reasonable, it’s worth checking out.  Of the options below, Alo yoga pants are by far my favorite.  They’re soft, they have a great cut and they last.  Beyond Yoga also makes great leggings and I’ve owned a pair of their yoga shorts for years.  They hold up nicely.

More recently I’ve started wearing Zella brand leggings as well as their other athleisure wear pieces.  I love the quality for the price, the color stays true and the fit is mostly awesome, although I do find their leggings to be lighter in fabric (without being see-through), so they’re a better option for summer.

The brand I’ve added below that I haven’t tried is Onzie and Spanx, although their prices are low enough that I wouldn’t hesitate to give them a go, especially Spanx.  I imagine they offer a better than average suck-and-tuck experience that I’m curious to try.

 

Affordable Brands of Leggings I Don’t Love

Even though there are some great leggings available at way better prices than Lululemon, it’s true that they’re not all awesome.  Personally, I’ve never had a good experience with MPG Sport (generally sold at TJ Maxx) and I’ve found Target’s Champion brand to be hit or miss.  When it’s good it’s good, but when it’s bad, it’s really unflattering.
The funny thing is that everyone seems to be getting on the legging bandwagon these days, so it’s just a matter of trying out different brands and seeing what works best for you and your body type.

A Quick Tip on Distressed Leggings

You’ll note some of the leggings in my roundup have cuts in them.  I’m not referring to the mesh inserts, but quite literally horizontal cuts in the pants, which although it looks cute, it can be a pain to get your leg through them.  If this is a style you like, but you’re not sure if they’ll drive you nuts to pull them on and off, I recommend buying a cheap pair of leggings from H&M or Forever 21 and just cutting your own slits in them.  Same look, much cheaper price (although the quality of leggings with these stores aren’t awesome, it will do the trick for a season).
