Which leggings do I need?

18 replies

I'm looking for some new leggings for winter. In the past all my leggings have ended up baggy around the knee and just look poor quality. I need some that will hold their shape, and whilst not the most stylish option, don't look horrendous. I've seen people recently wearing more athletic type ones, is that what I need?

I know I'm probably asking a lot but currently on mat leave so don't have an endless budget. So a good quality option but doesn't have to be a great brand etc. Can anyone help?

I have Lands End Starfish leggings or the tapered leg Starfish trousers. Not cheap but seem to be indestructible!

Cotton ones will bag. You need athletic type ones. They don't have to be expensive, look at Aurique or CRZ on Amazon

I am loving my M&S Heatgen Plus thermal leggings. So warm and soft and and a year and many washes in, not baggy or faded.

Queenie ke have pockets. They don't roll over your stomach and are not see through.

I've had mine over a year and they are still perfect.

Amazon sell them

Also love Queenieke. I wear them more than my Sweaty Betty ones.

I haven’t bought anything other than LoveLeggings ones since being recommended their maternity ones on here a few years ago!!

Their regular leggings are lovely and thick, not at all see-through and are nice and skinny at the ankle even in bigger sizes (usually my main complaint about other brands!). I haven’t had a baggy knee since I bought my first pair 🤣👍🏻

Fabletics are brilliant. Get the 2 for £24 then cancel the subscription 😁 you can do it through online chat too. Leggings are brilliant and have pockets for phones etc and they hold their shape and look fab after many, many washes!

I'm about to order another 2 pairs for winter they have cold weather ones. They've sent me another 2for £24 offer 👍

Me too! They’re nice and warm and never go baggy at the knee.

A third vote for love leggings. By the far the comfiest and best quality leggings I've ever owned. And they do them in all sorts of colours!

I have some comfy ones from Rapanui that wash well so far. Although they're definitely not squat proof or anything and need a long top etc over the bum area so depends what you want them for.

Yes, same for me. These last me a couple of years, no bagging and so warm. Have also tried the Primark fleece lined equivalent but find them a bit shiny. Always go back to the M&S Heatgen Plus.

I'm about to order the shein version of the queenie ke so if anyone is interested in how they compare to my usual please say on here and when they arrive I will let you know.

They look the same. Have pockets and a high waistband but you can never tell until you get them on.

Thanks for all the suggestions. If anyone is looking for the same thing I went for the next ponte leggings and they are amazing. Just what I was looking for.
