A great pair of (affordable) leggings can seem impossible to find.
At the risk of sounding like Goldilocks, there are so many yoga pants that are either too tight, too see-through or too likely to stretch out after a few washes.
But if the perfect pair does exist, it may be these basic black leggings from 90 Degree by Reflex — according to the more than 6,000 people who have given them a five-star rating on Amazon.
90 Degree By Reflex Women's Power Flex Yoga Pants, $20-$84, Amazon
According to the reviews, people love these leggings for their thick material that stays opaque no matter how you move (because there’s nothing more awkward than accidentally showing the world your undies when you bend over at the gym or grocery store). Reviewers also mention that these pants have soft fabric and a flattering cut that accommodates women with curves.
And since the price for most colors is $20, many reviewers say they have stocked up on several pairs.
(If you're looking for other $20 Amazon-favorites, we love this t-shirt dress that's perfect for spring and this scalloped dress anchorwomen all over the country can't stop wearing.)
These may be some of the highest-rated leggings on Amazon, but there are other options if you're looking for something slightly different, like leggings with more texture or yoga pants with hidden pockets. Scroll down to see some of our favorite, high-rated workout leggings that cost less than $25.
