Once you start wearing good workout clothes, it’s really hard to go back. Investment sportswear is a luxury, but one that makes a difference with every squat. Buying quality sportswear has changed my relationship with fitness and encourages me to break a sweat—yes, it’s a fact that cute gym clothes makes you want to go to the gym.
But spending $110 on a pair of leggings can be, like a burpee, a difficult task to wrap your mind around. Sure, fancy pants can make you feel like a fitfluencer doing naked yoga on an unmarked beach, but I try not to make a habit out of buying gym clothes that cost more than my membership.
That’s why, when I found Aerie leggings, the crushing weight of having to buy expensive activewear was lifted.
Dubbed the ‘Move’ leggings, they can handle everything from yoga to HIIT training.
Unlike others, Aerie makes the perfect high-rise that meets your true waist. The fabric offers ample support that doesn’t make you hyperaware of your thighs, but they are flexible enough that your movement is never restricted. These leggings are built to last; As a proud owner of thighs that touch, a year of regular use hasn’t frayed the inner seams whatsoever. Short girls that have an intimate knowledge of ankle bunching and tall girls who find most pairs masquerade as pedal pushers should rejoice, because they are offered in three different inseams. They have pockets, too.
If none of those qualifiers convince you, here’s another reason to try them for size: they are currently 50 percent off, priced at $25. That costs less than one of those trendy workout classes you’ll never return to, so stock up them today before they sell out.
