My Favorite Lululemon Leggings and Where I Wear Them

Lululemon Leggings

When it comes to athleisure, Lululemon is by far my favorite brand. But don’t get me wrong, their items can be super pricey. Nonetheless, I can say that the quality is unmatched. I’ve never had an issue with anything I’ve purchased. I can only speak for myself, but I love the brand and what I own.

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite styles of Lululemon pants. If you’re thinking about purchasing a pair and not sure which style is right for you, I hope this post helps! I also find that the associates at the stores really know their stuff. That entire wall of pants can be intimidating! Don’t be afraid to ask about which style works best for your activity and lifestyle.

For all three styles that I mention below, I size up from my usual pants/jeans size.

Wunder Under pants

The Wunder Under pants were the first style that I ever owned. Each year, Lululemon makes them better and better. I love that they have hi-rise styles now!

Where I wear them

I wear these for the gym or every day. The style that I own is thicker, and I would say it’s heavier than the other two styles below. You could probably wear them for any workout, but I find that they tend to fall down a little bit compared to other styles. If you do Vinyasa or Bikram yoga, these would probably be too hot.

Align pants

If you prefer to wear pants that make you feel like you’re not wearing anything, then Align pants are for you. Seriously, the fabric is so lightweight. They’re so easy to move in, and they don’t fall down.

Don’t try these if you’re on a budget, I promise you, you’ll want five pairs!

Where I wear them

Truly, I would never take these off, but I find these are best for movement workouts like yoga and barre. I’ve had no issues with pilling, but I have heard that these can pill if you wear them for too long. Therefore, I probably wouldn’t wear these for cardio workouts.

I did learn recently that if your pants pill, you can take them to a Lululemon store and they will fix them. I don’t know if this is true, but it’s worth trying!

High Times pants

High Times are probably my second favorite style behind the Align. As far as how the fabric feels compared to the Wunder Under and Align, I’d say it’s somewhere in between. I also find that the High Times hold up really well in the wash! The High Times pants fit me right at the ankle (I’m about 5’4″), so I love that they don’t require any hemming.

Where I wear them

They’re a really great pant for every day because they suck you in, and they stay up. I own a black pair, so I definitely get a lot of wear out of them. The high waist also makes them great for yoga!

If you’ve never purchased a pair of Lululemon leggings, I recommend going to the store to try them on and see how they feel. They are all a little bit different, and Lululemon is always making improvements and changes to their pants.
