    It's safe to say leggings are a must-have in your closet, but with so many styles to choose from (at a wide range of price points), it's hard to know which ones are actually worth owning.To get more news about Full Length Legging, you can visit official website.

    The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab tests leggings for durability, moisture management, comfort and performance features, and our fashion editors weigh in with the most stylish leggings for everyday wear to find the best, longest-lasting and most comfortable leggings out there. Our picks for the best leggings for women to buy in 2022 are a mix of top-tested styles, staffer favorites and popular brands with unique features.
    These Lululemon leggings earn our top spot because they're insanely comfortable (the lightweight, buttery smooth fabric has a barely-there feel), and they're versatile enough to wear for pretty much any occasion. They're designed for yoga, but equally useful as workout leggings, everyday wear and loungewear. The high-rise waist is flattering without digging into you or rolling down. On top of that, they're available lots of different options with various colors and patterns, rises on the waist and lengths on the leg.

    Leggings can get expensive, but this pair of cheap Amazon leggings is a total steal. It's one of the most popular leggings on Amazon with more than 87,000 reviews from users, many of whom swear they're incredibly comfortable and opaque. They're not your best bet for exercise, but they're ideal for everyday use or lounging at home. This style comes in tons of color options and is available in three size groupings, including plus sizes for up to 5X.

    These Nordstrom leggings have a cult-like following from users who swear they're even better than pricier brands. They're thicker than lightweight leggings, which helps them look flattering and feel a bit more compressive. Still, they're moisture-wicking, stretchy and extra soft so they feel equally comfortable to wear during workouts and for everyday use. They also come in a wide range of sizes for regular and plus size.

    Unlike our Best Value pick that's an affordable everyday style from Amazon, these leggings with pockets are perfect for exercise because they're made with performance fabric that's stretchy, opaque and comfortable to move around in. They're also a fraction of the cost of other workout pants, yet verified reviewers swear they're high quality. In fact, they have more than 57,000 five-star reviews, and that number continues to grow.

    Perfect for any exercise that involves lots of sweat and movement, these leggings are smooth and moisture wicking to help reduce friction. They're also more compressive than other workout leggings, which can help with muscle fatigue from high-intensity exercise. We're also big fans of the brand's ColdGear leggings, which are fleece-lined leggings for cooler weather, yet still breathable for running.

    These popular yoga pants are specifically designed for yoga and received one of the highest comfort ratings in our tests, both for the fabric and the overall fit. Our panel also said they were flattering and felt like second skin because they stayed in place without waistband rolling or wedgies. They proved to be breathable, resistant to stretching out, and durable in our Lab tests. This one's a 7/8-length with high-waist coverage, but there are lots of variations including crops and longer lengths.

    Many leggings with pockets have only a small insert for a credit card or key, but these have deep pockets on the side that can fit your phone or wallet. Plus, the pockets lie flat against your legs so they aren't bulky like the pockets on jeans. They're made with Athleta's signature Powervita fabric, which is soft and slightly compressive, making this pair ideal for yoga and studio workouts.
