Regardless of your height, shape or size, finding comfortable, flattering and sweat-absorbing yoga and fitness plus-size leggings that actually look cute is a major challenge—especially if you’re not looking to drop hundreds of dollars on just one pair. Fortunately, the affordable legging sphere has grown rapids, and there are now plenty of figure-enhancing leggings that are definitely stylish enough to wear to the gym, running errands or simply working from home, and best of all, they’re all designed specifically for humans of all shapes and sizes. (Which, honestly, should be the standard, but work has yet to be done in the fashion and wellness industry, shall we agree?)
Of course, aside from being cute and fitting well, you also need your leggings to be comfortable and flexible enough to move with you (not against you) regardless of what you’re doing, but you also don’t want an overly-stretchy pair that will start to lose its shape after just a couple uses. Whether you prefer an ultra high-rise cut, solid wash or patterned pair, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite leggings in extended sizes.

Spacedye Caught In The Midi High Waisted Legging
Kat Tijerina, plus size influencer and blogger at The Mom Edit is a fan of Beyond Yoga’s Superdye collection. “They’re thick-thigh-friendly and don’t roll at all,” she says. “Beyond Yoga leggings are some of my absolute faves for daily wear, walking my pups and, of course, yoga!”
These leggings are available in just about ever color imaginable, and feature a five-inch waistband so that they sit naturally at the waist. One reviewer loves them so much, they wrote, “Love the softness of the material and the way it hugs your physique without loosening throughout the day.” Now that’s a win-win for leggings.
Kat Tijerina, a plus size fashion influencer and blogger at The Mom Edit says these leggings are her go-to for workouts, running errands, and more.
“Of all the plus-size activewear brands I shop, Athleta is by far my favorite,” says Tijerina. “Its quality and price point are perfect for me, and I absolutely love the way the clothes fit my body. I own three pairs of Salutation leggings because they are so comfortable for all-day wear. They are definitely some of my most-lived-in athleisure pieces I own.”

Satina High Waisted Leggings
Stylist and founder of the sneaker publication CaptainCrepes.com, Josh Herbert loves these affordable Amazon leggings
for plus size clients. “There’s no need to break the bank when buying plus-size leggings — these high-waisted leggings are available on Amazon,” he says. “They are fully opaque, meaning they will have a nice solid finish, without showing your underwear off. Their high waist is a good style to choose if of a larger build, helping shape curves and also decent coverage above the hips.”

“When you want comfort, moisture-wicking technology and style then these Adidas leggings are a must-have if you want to look good at the gym or on a run,” says stylist Josh Herbert. “The print design fabric will help showcase your character if you want something more fun than plain black.”
If you’re looking for a legging that has more of an upscale feel, this is a great option. “This high-waisted pant has a thick ponte so it won’t roll down while you’re on the go,” explains Ashley Full, the Co-Founder of the plus-size luxury retailer AMOUR781. “This specific style of pant is sophisticated and comfortable, perfect for a lunch walk, and can be transformed for a date.”
Ashley Full calls these leggings a must-have for any closet. “Throw them in the wash, wear them in any season, or take them on vacation, there is nothing these pants can’t do,” she says. “They keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The stretch crepe is thicker and more substantial than your average legging, but lighter and more breathable than a ponte knit.” She also notes that she’d recommend sizing down.
“My absolute favorite non-athletic leggings are these Vince Camuto leggings,” says Kat Tijerina of The Mom Edit. “They’re so durable and if you have thicker thighs (like I do), then rest assured you don’t have to worry about them wearing out in the inner thigh area. I have three pairs of these bad boys and have been wearing them for years.”
