(Attractive) Yoga bottoms for 'chunky' legs?

After three years of no exercise my twins are at nursery and I'm getting a chance to get to yoga which I'm loving but I desperately need some new clothes. It's ashtanga so lots of movement and I'm working up a sweat and the loose trackie bottoms are not cutting it. I know I shouldn't care what I look like but the gap fit leggings I tried on looked truly horrendous on my lumpy size 16 thighs and I need something that is a closer cut to my legs so I think leggings are a must?. Any suggestions? I've looked at sweaty Betty but, if possible, would prefer not to spend £65+ per pair.

I have similar thighssmile
I really rate patagonia leggings for gym wear. I have often got an offer online.
Not cheap, but I feel mega confidence wearing them.

I'll check them out. I went to tk maxx today one recommendation but struck out, was really hoping to find the perfect yoga pants for next to nothing ��

Not quite £65 a pair but I would recommend these from Sweaty Betty. They are made from great material, wash well and most importantly come in difference lengths for those of us who are vertically challenged.

Nike make some really good capris. I've had mine through ten years of daily practice! (ok I retired them last month, but still)

Tu at Sainsburys do a surprisingly flattering pair of high-waisted black 7/8 leggings - they really hold you in but the waistband is grey/white, and the bands somehow make your waist look smaller. They're about £12 and I've got three pairs.

Jimmybim they look good and I am most definitely vertically challenged. Do you find they're loose at the bottom and fall down the leg?

Yonkers, £12 sounds fab. Are they opaque? Don't want anyone to have to see my white bits wiggling.

Fibonacci, I'm checking out Nike...
