Discovering the perfect leggings might seem simple, but in reality, it's just as difficult as finding your dream sports bra. The world is filled with subpar pairs that roll down, ride up, and pill away — but enough is enough. You deserve support, comfort, breathability, and usable pockets — hell, you deserve a pair of leggings that won't show your underwear.

Luckily, there's a style out there that fills all these requirements and more: Sweaty Betty Power Leggings (Buy It, $100, sweatybetty.com). Designed as the ultimate legging to take you from yoga to spin to HIIT, the high-waisted style is made with a buttery-soft fabric that flawlessly combines compression and comfort. And while that probably sounds like every legging description you've read before, shoppers say this pair actually delivers on its promises. (P.S. These are Shape editors' favorite leggings.)

Case in point: Customers have given the bum-sculpting pair more than 2,500 perfect reviews, writing the style is "everything you'd want from leggings." In fact, the top-rated style from the British activewear company — which boasts celebrity fans including Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, and Tracee Ellis Ross — is so popular that one pair sells every 90 seconds.

A huge part of what makes these leggings so spectacular is their fabric. It's a combination of polyamide and elastane that's supportive and sweat-wicking. Of course, there's plenty of four-way stretches, but the unique fabric blend also keeps its shape and fit over time. 

And unlike other leggings which stay within the extra small to large size range, Sweaty Betty offers the Power Leggings in sizes XXS to XXL, as well as in 13 different colorways, ensuring that you can find the ideal pair to round out your workout wardrobe. Plus, there's an adjustable drawcord in the waistband that only further guarantees a perfect fit. (Related: The Best Size-Inclusive Activewear Brands)

All things considered, it's not too surprising reviewers say they want a pair for every day of the week, especially when the same style can be worn for lounging, running, yoga, and errands. And with words such as "dream," "amazing," and "favorite" showing up in so many reviews, it's almost a little easier to justify the $100 price tag. 

Plus, you can score the Sweaty Betty leggings in the brand's signature Fit Kit. The deal lets you snag a pair of Power Leggings and a matching top for just $110. Another option? Swap the tank for a winter-ready Power Workout Zip Jacket for just $8 more (the total price comes to $118). Either way, you'll feel ready to conquer the day in your new look.
