Since the weather is slowly warming up (sort of) and parks are finally filled with runners, jump ropers, and yogis vibing out on their mats, I've had a momentous realization; I hate working out in my apartment. What's the point of a bomb activewear set if the only one to see it is the pigeon on my windowsill? Despite being able to finally show off all the cute leggings I've been stowing away through the winter months, I still find myself returning to the same pair. In fact, one of the only things (other than luxurious sunshine) that's been getting me outdoors and brightening up my activewear wardrobe is this pair of fantastically comfy, celeb-loved tights from FP Movement. (Pssst: Check out more editor-loved FP Movement gear here.)

If you're not already completely in love with the FP Movement Good Karma ⅞ Leggings (Buy It, $78, freepeople.com), here's an update: Back in 2020, national treasure Hilary Duff dubbed these leggings "good booty pants" for their impeccable bum-lifting abilities. Since then, Brie Larson has also taken to Instagram to show hers off in a pre-workout video. And me? I received mine from the brand a few months ago, and from the first moment I put them on, I instantly knew they'd be my favs.

Constructed from a stretchy blend of nylon and spandex, these leggings have an ultra-soft, barely-there quality — a refreshing divergence from the squeeze-you-in types that seem to be overflowing the market these days. This being said, the ribbed detail along the waist of these bottoms provides gentle but ample support; enough to feel secure on my runs, but not so compressing that I can't lounge on the couch (and honestly, I've fallen asleep in them). Plus, the fabric is lightweight and sweat-resistant to withstand hard workouts without showing stains. (Want more must-have leggings? This list is for you.)

What's more, there are so. many. colors. The pair I received came in a bright blue that added flare to even my least imaginative workout fits. In truth, I wore these so often, I bought two more: a soft pink iteration for me and a warm brown version for my sister (who hates bright shades). At the rate I'm wearing them — from yoga, to running, to brunch, and back to bed, I'll probably need a third pair, TBH. To understand the hype, check these celeb-loved workout tights on the Free People website.
