The Workout Leggings That These Super-Active Women Never Exercise Without

There's one area of my gym kit that I always struggle to get right—workout leggings. What at first can seem like the most suitably tight, supportive yet comfortable pair can often (with a little wear and a couple of washes) end up baggy at the knees, puckered around the thighs and will they stay up for the entirety of a sweaty spinning session—no, of course not. I was almost certain that the perfect pair of running leggings didn't exist. But first, I did some homework.

I went to a selection of the fittest women I know, from marathon runners to yoga teachers, to find out what workout leggings work for them—they spend their lives in them, after all. And what I found is that although it took each of them a while to find their perfect match, they all concluded that there are plenty of incredible pairs out there.
