The 13 Best Squat-Proof Leggings for Your Most Intense Workouts

September 10, 2020 by Glamour

Some leggings can be a dream for lounging, but a total nightmare for working out—and high-intensity endeavors call for the best squat-proof leggings around. After all, nothing can ruin a workout quite like realizing your favorite black pair is sheer in all the wrong places and rides a little too low.

Comfort and fit are no doubt important considerations when deciding which leggings will hold up, but at the end of the (leg) day, it all comes down to the fabric. Thin materials like modal or cotton are totally acceptable for morning strolls or lounging horizontally, but a sweaty routine usually requires fabric that's more durable—like polyester or nylon—to keep up with you. So rather than bend and stretch awkwardly in front of the mirror to see whether we see anything, we reached out to professional female trainers to find out which brands and styles deliver on the daily.

From high-waist fits to sustainably made styles, their picks can withstand multiple rounds of squats, lunges, and dead lifts without rolling, slipping, stretching or turning see-through. Shop the 13 best squat-proof leggings below.
