Leggings are a staple. Maybe it’s because I love to workout, or maybe just because they are super comfy and easy to pair with an oversized shirt or sweater.
There are a million brands, price points and levels of quality when it comes to leggings. (I can see you shaking your head in agreement with me now.) Why is it that you can have 10 different pairs of black leggings and they can all fit so differently?
If you’re still reading this then you can probably relate to me when I say how annoying it is to have to pull them up a million times during a workout class, or when you try them on and immediately feel like they are invisible (too thin, too thin!)
So, I’ve found several brands that are high quality and come highly reviewed, but not at the expense of an entire paycheck.
Brands you can order online right now, and have on your doorstep in 2-3 days.
Here are 4 of the best leggings, all under $40…
1. Senita Ellie Tights
Senita Athletics was launched online in 2015 with the goal to provide durable, fashionable, and functional products at a fraction of the price of competitors. They are committed to providing an affordable product without compromising quality, and they live up to that.
I would have to say the Ellie tights are my favorite leggings. The dark blue color and fabric is top notch, and they don’t move at all during a workout. They are thick enough to provide coverage, but not too thick that you feel like you’re overheating on a run or in spin class. I love wearing mine for both! The deep pocket on each side is also something I love.
I’d also recommend the criss-cross tights—another favorite of mine from this line.

2. Zella Hot Live In Capri
You can’t go wrong with Zella capris from Nordstrom Rack. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a pair over $32, and I’ve always been thrilled with the way they fit and wear. I tend to wear them in warmer weather because they feel lighter than other leggings. So with spring coming up, these are a great transition legging.

3. 90 Degrees
I first heard of this brand from a friend at the gym who shops this workout line at T.J. Maxx. I’ve found the best deals on Amazon and where you can literally get any color you can dream of wearing, for $18.99. They are high-waisted, hold everything in tight, and are a softer, stretchier material.
