Finding a pair of jeans that fit like a dream, are versatile enough to go with anything and that doesn’t cost a fortune is a hard enough task, but finding a pair of figure-flattering leggings takes this difficulty to next level. While leggings are undoubtedly designed to be comfortable and enhance the figure, many styles do neither of the two. A good pair of leggings should contour your figure without being too constricting that your circulation gets cut off, and should have just enough stretch to allow you to move freely without getting stretched out after just an hour of wear time.
Leggings also make for a great layering staple, and they’re a great way to add dimension to your look (say, paired under a flirty floral frock or under an oversized tunic) without sacrificing feeling comfortable. Then, there is, of course, the question of how to know whether the leggings you’re buying online are going to fit like a glove —or fit like a nightmare. To address this all too common dilemma, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite pairs on the market right now that won’t disappoint.
