Finding the best black leggings can be overwhelming – there are so many styles, sizes, and fabrics to choose from! We did the dirty work for you and found 10 of the best leggings for working out, wearing under your favorite outfits, or hiding the dreaded “mummy tummy!” First, here are some features we focused on when looking for high-quality leggings.
Material: Leggings come in fabrics like nylon, cotton, or polyester to keep you comfortable! They are all mixed with either lycra or spandex to provide the stretch you need to keep them in place, wick sweat, or keep you toasty warm!
Size Range: To make sure you get the right fit, we’ll let you know the range of sizes available. Each brand has its own sizing guide, so if you’re still unsure, click on the link for more information on measurements sizing guidelines.
Color Options: In the past, leggings were typically black or grey. Now, there are leggings in any color or pattern you could dream up! We’ll let you know how many options you have, so you can find the perfect color or pattern!
Tummy Control: Having a bit of a tummy shouldn’t deter you from wearing comfy leggings! We found some great black leggings that have thicker material around the tummy area to smooth it out and keep your leggings from sagging or rolling down!
High Waisted: In addition to providing tummy control, we also found several high-waisted leggings that are also flattering and comfortable! Whether you want more tummy coverage, or you want to prevent them from rolling down, a high waist pair of leggings can help!
Full Length: Whether you want a pair of leggings for yoga class, or you’d prefer an opaque pair to slip under dresses or skirts, a full-length legging is great for both! We’ll let you know if they come in other lengths too!
Now that you know what to look for, let’s find you the best black leggings for your next workout, date night, or brunch with friends! We found 10 great pairs of black leggings that work for just about any body type, height, budget, activity level, and more! If you’re pressed for time, we totally understand!
