As a shopping editor who spends a lot of her free time running and going to fitness classes, I have a closet overflowing with spandex. But out of all the leggings and matching tops (or old and holey T-shirts) I own, the FP Movement Happiness Runs Crop (Buy It: $30, freepeople.com) and matching FP Movement Ultra High-Rise Happiness Runs Leggings (Buy It: $70, freepeople.com) are my all-time favorites thanks to super soft materials and a comfortable yet stylish ribbed design. (

While sold separately, each piece of this FP Movement set is made out of a nylon and spandex blend that makes the material stretchy and compressive at the same time. Through any workout — yoga, HIIT, running, or strength training — I feel lifted and supported in both the high-waisted leggings and the top (which acts just as effectively as a sports bra). No matter what I'm doing, the material doesn't slip down or roll over, so I'm able to focus on the exercise I'm doing and avoid constantly fumbling with my clothes. I always feel confident, secure, and ready to take on anything in the gym — a mindset I never thought I'd achieve through a workout set.

I love it so much, I own the set in three colors — black (of course), an electric blueish-purple, and pastel orange — to suit any mood or adventure and so I never have to be without it. One of my favorite things about this set is that both the top and bottoms are ribbed, which makes them a little more special, so I can seamlessly transition from a yoga class to brunch with friends, and later, to my couch to relax.

Shoppers say they're "obsessed" with the crop top and agree that it's "very comfortable," saying they "feel so confident in it." Several reviewers wrote that they, too, are "repurchasing in every color" and "highly highly recommend" the top to everyone they know.

The leggings found equal praise among reviewers who say they "really suck you in" and are "flattering." One spoke to the durability of the leggings and added that "after washing and wearing over 10 times, they have not torn or sagged."
