I’ve been such a massive fan of the high waisted workout tights ever since JAGGAD launched their ‘Perspective’ leggings a few months ago. And now I have five new favourite high waisted tights to add to my list.
Being tall, the high waist was always going to be perfect for me, but even if you’re petite, if you get the right pair, they can be your new best friend. And just as supportive.
Because they create a smooth silhouette (that’s just a fashion-friendly way of saying no muffin top or jelly belly action), and hold you in.
And you don’t have to worry about showing too much skin off (and no brickie’s cleavage either!).
Plus you never need to interrupt your workout to yank them up into place.
So, here are my latest picks:
1. Dharma Bums Geometric Shadow
Dharma Bums always carry standard and high waist of their printed tights, yay for options. Plus they’re super comfy, never slip, and are ethically produced so you can ‘keep your kharma clean’ as they say.
Totally in love with the brand new Geometric Shadow print, a monochrome-loving yogi’s dream…
2. P.E Nation Square Off Piping Legging
With fabric that feels like a second skin, super high waist and genius zippered waistband pocket for your phone, these 7/8 tights are in very high rotation for me right now.
3. Lululemon Align Pant
If plain rather than patterned is more your thing, you simply have to go try a pair of the Align pants from lulu. Buttery soft fabric, you almost forget you’re wearing them. They might be the comfiest yoga pants you’ve ever owned.
4. L’urv Atomic Kitten Legging from Pure Dash
If love a bit of black and white, these are the perfect pair to go bold without going crazy on colour. Great fit and feel, lush print, these fit like a glove and are super flattering.
5. We Are Handsome High Waist Legging– Various Prints/Designs
Love the mesh panels at the ankles and the fabric that keeps you feeling ‘held together’ these tights now come in a variety of prints… try The Score from Fire and Shine, or the Retrograde from Stylerunner.
