In a new world where working from home and wearing comfy clothes is the norm, leggings have become a fashion staple. But finding a good pair at an affordable price isn't always the easiest task.

So many 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 leggings from 90 Degree by Reflex — according to more than 8,100 verified reviewers on Amazon.

90 Degree By Reflex Women's Power Flex Yoga Pants

According to the reviews, shoppers love these leggings for their thick material that stays opaque no matter how you move. They also note that these pants are made with a soft fabric and have a flattering tummy-control waist that flatters all shapes and sizes.

They come in 18 different colors, and many reviewers say they have stocked up on several pairs.

In 2019, the company updated the design to include a thigh pocket big enough to hold a cell phone and a higher waist for even more tummy control.
