When you’re a person with a whole lot of curves, finding the perfect plus-size leggings can be as difficult as sourcing that golden pair of jeans. Often they’re a bit too see-through or just aren’t comfortable, which totally defeats the purpose. But the moment you find “the one,” they instantly become the item you never want to take off.
Some of these plus-size leggings are warm enough to wear to work with booties on a winter day (when it’s time to finally abandon our home offices), or tossed on with a sports bra and your other workout clothes before you fire up your favorite yoga app or head out for a run. A few even have pockets so you can easily stash your phone. Plus, these slimming options boast rave reviews, too.
