Leggings have become an absolute wardrobe essential and—let’s be real ladies—we’re totally not mad about it. They’ve pretty much replaced all our pants and jeans these days because they’re just so comfortable and versatile. But let’s face it—not all leggings are created equal. That’s why we’ve created a list of the Top 10 most flattering leggings you can buy, whether it be a sweat-wicking pair to get you through hot yoga or a faux leather pair for a night on the town. Each one of these gems promises to do all the things a great pair of leggings should, like retain their shape all day (never bag!), keep your polka-dotted undies hidden while your mid-squat, and, most importantly, slim and compress your bod in all the right places. Scroll through our objective list of the most flattering leggings you’ll own and snag your faves! Opening image: yummie.com
