My Four Favorite Leggings for the Gym Under $40


My Four Favorite Leggings for the Gym Under $40

If you’re anything like me, or any other girl in her 20’s, you love leggings. Trent and I frequent the gym almost daily, so I’m always going through leggings and washing them constantly. I have worn through quite a few pairs over the past year, and here are my four favorite leggings brands that I have found that are affordable and keep their quality over time. My waist measures 27″ and my hips measure 43″, so I have a very hard time finding bottoms that fit properly. These four brands below are ones that will always stand the test of time. I don’t even bother shopping around anymore because I know that these brands are going to always have my back!

So if you’re also a member of the big booty club, these leggings are ones you’ll love for years to come!!

1. 90 Degree by Reflex

They sell this brand on Amazon and at TJ Maxx. This brand is my go-to for favorite leggings. They are squat proof, sweat proof, and come in so many colors. At $17 per pair at TJ Maxx or $25 per pair on Amazon. The quality is better than Gymshark, in my opinion. The compression is great, it doesn’t show cellulite, and the material is nice and thick. So if you’re focused on growing your booty to be as big as possible, but still want colored leggings, this is the brand to go to! With almost 7,500 reviews and 4.5 stars on Amazon, I think this brand speaks for itself! I wear a size small in this brand.

2. Colorful Koala

These are also another Amazon brand that I have fallen in love with! They have a multitude of colors and are around $22-$25 per pair. These leggings are smooth as butter and are considered a Lululemon dupe! Trent loves when I wear these leggings to the gym, as they accentuate the booty very nicely! Also, if you’re looking for that butt crack look that all the IG influencers have, these will give you that but without the wedgie! They have developed the seams in the crotch area to try to diminish cameltoe as much as possible. Squat proof and sweat proof. They could be more likely to show sweat than some of the other brands listed because of their fabric, but I have had some very sweaty workouts in these and they haven’t shown any sweat at all. With 850 reviews and over 4 stars, these are personally one of my absolute favorite brands. I say to stick with your normal size for these. I wear a small and the fit is great! This is the dusty rose color.

3. Flexxfit

I only have one pair of these so far, but will definitely be going back for more quickly. These do come from England, so it might take a little longer to get to you, but it’s worth it. The quality absolutely blew me away! They have so many pretty colors and their outlet section always has the greatest deals! I think they normally convert to about 22 dollars from pounds. If you shop the non-outlet section, they convert to about $38 for each pair. Which honestly, $38 is a phenomenal deal for workout leggings anyways! For real though, I honestly believe that the quality of these leggings are better than the leggings that cost $60-$80! They are sweat proof and squat proof! The material is super thick and the compression is on point. I wear a size small, but could easily go down to an XS if I wanted more.

4. Braziliara

These booty scrunch leggings come in so many colors! She sells them brand new on Poshmark (which means you can make offers for a better deal) and she sells them on her website. They come in many different colors and a couple different textures. I personally prefer the smoother texture to the honeycomb one. I have the light purple and have worn them on super hard leg days and they are completely sweat and squat proof. The thickness of the material and the booty scrunch really compress you in all the right places. They range anywhere from $32-$40 depending on which website you buy from. These are true to size. I am wearing a small. After reviewing her Poshmark account, I suggest going through that instead of her website because it appears that she is selling them at a cheaper price for the same product on Poshmark.

So there you have it, my top four favorite leggings to wear to the gym! Do you have any favorite leggings you wear that are under $40? I know there are plenty of different brands, but I didn’t want to review them, if I don’t regularly use them! Let me know below in the comments.
