Last summer we heard rumors that the, but let’s face it: Once you start wearing as pants, there’s no going back. We would wear this most comfortable and elastic legwear just about anywhere, but which pair is best when you actually want to? Here, 13 women weigh in about their favorite pairs for everything from yoga to barre to running an ultramarathon.

For Yoga

Hard Tail Flat Waist Capri Leggings

at Zappos

“I’d have to say my favorite have been my. Specifically, a pair of black and gray tie-dyed ones I picked up at Pure Yoga. They’re super comfy and soft, have the perfect amount of stretch so that they hug without squeezing, and they’re cute, so they transition well from the studio to the street. (I’ve never been the everyday-spandex-wearing type.) Most importantly, they’re durable, which is key when I wear them a ton, while moving around on a and the floor, and wash them regularly.” —Jessica Caplan, yoga and sound meditation instructor

For Hot Yoga

Asics Seamless Legging

at Asics

“As someone who sweats at Y7 upwards of four times per week, you could say my collection of leggings is a little bit out of control. Even though the class is held in the dark, I have my best practice when I look and feel great, and the outfit I wear has a lot to do with that. The is one of my all-time favorite pieces. The material is lightweight and breathable (major key in a 90-degree vinyasa-yoga practice), and the texture on the bottom part of the leggings helps stop me from sliding when I’m holding crow pose.” —Madison Meltzer, associate social-media editor, PopSugar

For Running Every Day (and Yoga)

Nike Power Legendary High Waist Capris

at Nordstrom

“I run almost every day and in my experience, Nike Dri-Fit is the answer, always. I’ve tried similar stuff from Under Armour and Gap Body but Nike Dri-Fit is just the best. My favorite, and the only one I buy — in bulk, basically — is the from the Nike Dri-Fit line. Compression feels super supportive and taut, and they keep their shape over multiple years, even with constant washings. I also do yoga in them and give them another A+ rating for that … On my body, the fit is really higher-rise than the photo online shows. I have a short torso and they definitely go above my navel, which is how I like it — Under-Armour stuff fits me right at the navel, which makes me feel crazy and is super distracting for me.” —Carmen García Durazo, producer

Mid-Rise Stripe-Melange Leggings for Women

From at Old Navy

“I like my leggings to be several things: cheap (miss me with that nonsense), opaque enough to wear as pants (shush, haters!), and short enough to fit my legs without any extra fabric bunching around the ankles. Old Navy’s excel on all of these points, with the added benefit of being able to pick up an iconic American Flag shirt in the same trip!” —Brennin Cummings, marketing coordinator at Penguin Random House

For Under

adidas Women’s Running Response Long Tights

at Amazon

“Hands down my favorite leggings are the mid-rise long. The mid-rise hits right below my bellybutton and doesn’t grip into my sides, making my waist look smaller. I got sick of spending 0 for a single pair and always buying black to maximize the use. With a lower price point I can buy multiple colors, patterns, lengths, and duplicates.” —Meagan Kong, dancer and movement coach

For Women With Curves

Bombsheller #TriEchinopsis Leggings

at Bombsheller

“Leggings are a huge issue for curvy femmes, and my favorites right now are from and. Both companies use fun printed fabrics that don’t stretch into literal sheer oblivion over fat asses, and they both have high elastic waistbands that stay up even when your belly is hell bent on pulling them down.” —Jessamyn Stanley, yoga teacher and author of

Alala Captain Crop Tight

8 at Bandier

“Alala all the way. I love the brand’s Captain Crop tights. It’s the perfect three-quarter length for year-round wear, and honestly, I rarely wear full-length tights for any classes or workouts because I get too hot and sweaty. These have an extra-thick waistband that is doing wonders for my post-holiday workouts (yes, I indulged some!). Alala has some of the best fabrics I’ve found for all their gear, and these tights are extra lightweight with sexy sheer inserts in a few strategic places. Unlike some other brands, I don’t feel like these are precious — they’re functional, and I wash and dry them like normal clothes, and both of the pairs of tights that I’ve had have held up for years now.” —Elizabeth Landers, producer, CNN

For Ultramarathons

UA ColdGear Leggings

at Under Armour

“Okay, so I am really cheap and generally wear whatever, be it secondhand sportswear, etc., but I dabble in ultramarathons and the occasional Ironman, and I love exercising in the cold, so I do need pants that keep me warm but don’t feel like I’m wearing a diaper. My favorite are the. Very warm; they stay dry and they don’t chafe my downstairs. Also, the fit is very slimming, like you are wearing a leg girdle. Sexy.” —Jill Smith, advertising executive

For Dancing and Traveling

Beyond Yoga Strappy Midi Leggings

at Nordstrom

“! I love the fit, the materials are the softest and most comfortable around, plus they are really flattering on the leg. I use mine to teach ballet, work out at the gym, and even in my Latin ballroom classes, and of course for, which I do a lot. They also have made some really stylish ones that have a crisscross straps on the bottom, which reminds me of how we used to tie our pointe-shoe ribbons.” —Christina Lyon, dance instructor, and founder and artistic director of

For HIIT Workouts

In Movement 7/8 Tight Everlux 25”

at Lululemon

“Am I the only one that is CONSTANTLY hiking up her leggings during class? Thankfully, these stay put through every explosive movement (think squat-jumps and burpees) during a HIIT session and give me a sexy — not suffocating — sleekness I desire. They’re also quick-drying and breathable, so I don’t worry about swamp booty or leaving sweat prints on my mat or equipment. Plus, they also make your backside look amazing.” —Marisel Salazar, food and lifestyle writer and Instagrammer,

For Cardio Training + For Yoga

Nike ‘Sculpt’ Training Capris

5 at Macys

“For running all things cardio and training, I’m obsessed with my. They offer the right amount of compression, and are high-waisted, so it feels as though my body is enjoying the benefits of my workout in part because of what I’m wearing. And then for all things yoga, especially during the colder months, I like Lululemon’s. They’re especially perfect for non-heated yoga practice environments as they offer the right amount of warmth, with style, perfect fit, and support.” —Lauren Ash, founder of

“For workouts like spinning or any cross training, I wear leggings. Any legging with compression is the way to go — leggings without compression will fail you.

For Not Sliding Around

Under Armour UA Mirror Hi-Rise Leggings

at Zappos

“I like workout leggings that are a bit high-waisted. My Under Armour leggings fit well and don’t slide around too much … I think the worst thing is when leggings slide down or move around when you’re running and you constantly have to stop to adjust them. The UA ones I have stay in place and feel light and comfy. These grip really well to your body and they stay cool during my workouts.” —Sim Hothi, assistant at 3 Arts Entertainment
