Tried and tested gym gear: Our favourite workout leggings right now

Looking for leggings that will last? This activewear is durable, comfortable and trendy.


As an avid runner, I am always on the lookout for leggings that fit and function well, and if they happen to be cute too then I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot.

Unfortunately, it’s no easy process. Shopping for women’s activewear usually feels like a series of compromises. 

Do you get the pair with pockets or comfy material? Do you choose the fashionable ones or the practical ones?

No compromises needed

But we don’t always have to sacrifice what we want. Buying quality workout wear is an investment in our health and wellbeing, and we deserve leggings that will last and look good.
