Whatever gets you on the mat is the best clothing to do yoga in, but leggings designed for yoga will allow for greater freedom of movement, as well as keeping you cool and comfy. We’re talking about material that’s breathable, moisture-wicking and stretchy.
How high and compressive you want your waistband is a personal choice, although we’ve found that a high, flat waistband with a drawstring is least likely to slide or roll down – the worst sin for yoga leggings.
You don’t want to wait until you’re halfway through a class to wonder whether your patterned knickers are visible through the fabric of your leggings. The opacity of the fabric can vary depending on individual body shape and the tightness of the size selected, so it’s best to check whether they pass the “squat test” for you before you commit.
Sustainability is another important consideration these days, and many companies now make yoga gear with recycled materials and eco-friendly processes .
We’ve rounded up the best yoga leggings out there so you can breathe easy and focus on your flow.

A combination of comfort, support and freedom of movement means the Align leggings are widely regarded as the ultimate yoga pants. The delightfully soft, lightweight fabric has a muted matt finish, and although they feel “barely there”, they pass the squat test easily. The very high, wide waistband doesn’t roll down, and has a secret pocket on the inside for a card or a key.

In contrast to the primarily polyester fabrics used for leggings, these are made with a blend of bamboo, organic cotton and elastane. As well as having sustainability street cred, the fabric is certified as hypoallergenic – great for those who are sensitive to certain synthetic materials. The leggings are fairly thick, but feel soft to the touch and are supportive rather than compressive.
Never mind buns of steel, it would take a will of steel to resist this on-trend tie-dye pair. Sustainably made with semi-synthetic modal yarn, they are on the thicker side but are still stretchy, as well as being soft, seamless and very high-waisted. Because they’re made from tie-dyed fabric, each pair has a unique pattern. We’ll bet you’re already looking for the matching yoga bra.
These super-high-rise waist-sculpting leggings score high on the stay-put scale. The breathable, sweat-wicking fabric is squat-proof and non-shiny, with mild compression. At less than half the price of Lululemons these leggings are excellent value, and they’re made with recycled ECONYL yarn – a win for both your bank balance and the environment.

Forgive us the inclusion of pants when you’re expecting leggings, but these are great for those days when you’re not in the mood to be squeezed. The super-soft bamboo blend is moisture-wicking, stretchy and antibacterial, while clever tailoring makes the waistband stay flat on your waist without gripping you like a python. Roomy, with deep pockets and a flattering drape, they may be designed for yoga but they’re also eminently suitable for lounging on the sofa.
Prefer a sleeker feel? Flip The Dog has you covered. Made with recycled polyamide, the lightweight, silky fabric is opaque and holds its shape so you won’t end up with baggy knees after several wears. These leggings are built for comfort as well as style, thanks to flatlock seams and what FTD calls a “super sympathetic” high, flat waistband.
The Seattle-based luxe sportswear brand is serious about sustainability and transparency with information on the production process on its website. Who knew you could turn waste products from dyes into paving stones? So of course, this pair is made from recycled plastic, and the fabric is lightweight, extra soft, matt and squat-proof. As well as being super-high-waisted, they have a small back pocket and come in a range of earthy tones.
If you break into a cold sweat at the sight of shiny spandex, try these soft cotton-rich yoga leggings. The lightweight fabric is breathable and quick-drying, and there’s a high, wide waistband. The stripe down the side of the leg adds a stylish touch.
