Editor Pick: 'These Are The Absolute Best Workout Leggings I've Ever Tried'
Two years ago, I saw a friend wearing a pair of , and couldn't take my eyes off of them. It was love at first sight. I was drawn to the unique scalloped edging at the bottom, as well as the fish-like reflective pattern. Also: how amazing my friend's legs and butt looked in them.
Later that day, I logged onto the site to buy a pair for myself, but whoa. 8! I couldn't pull the trigger. I have alotof workout tights, I reasoned. And what leggings could possibly be worth this price tag? But I couldn't stop thinking about them. Occasionally I'd pop onto the Lulu site to see if they were marked down (never happened) or gaze at them longingly while browsing the sale rack in the store.

Then, a few weeks ago I stopped by the Lulu shop in Philadelphia. There they were.It can't hurt to just try them on, I told myself. I should have known better.
You know how some guys are hot AF, but once they start talking you realize why the adage 'beauty is only skin deep' is a thing? These aren't that guy. These are the David Beckham of workout leggings. Incredibly gorgeousandwith actual substance under the surface (you guys, he just built a 4,000-piece Lego castle for Harper. Have you ever built a Lego castle for a kid? Because I have and let me tell you, there's nothing sexier than a man who can spend hours putting together those little plastic pieces of torture so I don't have to.)
Boost metabolism and build strength with this 5-minute bench workout:
The material was like nothing I'd ever worn before—the perfect balance of compression and give. They sucked me in—I swear I looked a full size smaller in them—but I could easily bend and stretch without it cutting in behind the knee like other compression tights. And the pockets. Oh! The pockets. There's a zippered one at the back of the waistband where you could keep a key, and another inside the front where you could stash a credit card (or in my case, my work ID so I can get back into the building after a lunch time run). But the best by far are the larger, hidden pockets on either side of the thighs. I could slip my entire hands inside!
I still balked at the price, though—that's a lot of cash for something I'm just going to cover in sweat. I put them back and walked out of the store...only to return 30 minutes later, having done some mental justification (I still have 0 in Christmas money from last year in my drawer, so I'd really be paying less than for them...).

At the checkout, the woman told me, "These pants will change your life." I don't know that I'd go that far, but they are, hands-down my favorite workout tights (close second: ). They're meant for running, so I stash my cellphone in those side pockets and listen to tunes on my bluetooth headphones as I pound through the miles. (Thanks to that tight material, the phone doesn't fall out). That said, I've also worn them for yoga and strength-training workouts. And on the weekends I'll wear them just to run errands because they're that freaking cute.
I bought black, but they come in a slew of neutral hues, so now my only problem is that I have to come up with another mental justification to buy another color (or two).
