7 Best Lululemon Leggings: Align II, Invigorate & Wunder Under

Written by on August 26, 2020

There are leggings. And then there are Lululemon leggings. The latter inspires a rabbit hole of Reddit threads dedicated to solving the mystery behind why the best Lululemon leggings are, well, the best. The stretchy workout gear has sustained such feverish loyalty that few dare question the hype. Never mind the technical fabrics or high-performance cuts—all it takes is slipping into a pair of Align IIs or Wunder Unders to concede, that yes, Lululemon does in fact make some of the best running and yoga pants on the planet.

Tempted as you might be to add the first black pair to cart, Lululemon offers a range of leggings (Fast & Free! Speed Up! Invigorate!) for specific fits, feels, and workout needs. With so many options to sift through—and a price point that requires a keener eye—the checkout button can feel miles away. But honest-to-God reviews can be the guiding light when you can’t tell the difference between the Nulus and the Luons. 

You know (and we know) that nothing makes you feel like your truest self than leggings that hug you in all the right places, so we combed through hundreds of reviews to see which of Lululelmon’s most popular styles deliver. From a pair of capris with minimal seams to a high-waist fit that prioritizes pockets and reflective details, shop the seven best Lululemon leggings below.

    Best Overall Leggings: Align Pant II 25″

    Key selling points: Buttery soft, weightless, and an exceptionally thick waistband—what’s not to love about the Align II? It comes in three lengths, but the 25-inch inseam nails the elusive sweet spot between a capri and a full-length legging. The site says this style is perfect for yoga, but going through its 3,000 five-star reviews, customers seem to do everything in them (napping included).

    What customers say: “I never leave reviews but feel like I need to for these leggings. They were the most comfortable leggings throughout my entire pregnancy, stretched over my belly till the end AND I still live in them now four months postpartum. I went one size up and they’re a bit looser now but perfect for gentle workouts, walks, errands, and of course lounging. The material is buttery soft and feels like you’re not even wearing pants! Amazing for this time in my life.” —New Mama and Lulu Lover

    Best for Lounging, Walking, or Doing Yoga: Align Pant 28″

    Key selling points: All the goodness of an Align legging, but cut for a longer length because of its 28-inch inseam. The Nulu fabric feels like second skin, doesn’t lose shape (thanks to the added Lycra fiber), and makes for a great workhorse legging in warmer months.

    What customers say: “My go-to workout leggings. These are my tried and true style for runs, hyper-mobile workouts, and just feeling pulled in without pinching around the waist, legs, etc. I’m 5’7”, 150 lbs, and wear a size 4. Fits like a glove!” —Aracely Cu

    Best for Running: Fast and Free Tight II 25″

    Key selling points: Made from a lightweight (but not sheer), quick-drying fabric, the Fast & Free Tight is a popular option for high-intensity workouts. It doesn’t show sweat, and the waistband hugs in nicely without cinching like a corset. The Nulux fabric (think Nulu feel but more supportive) is cool to the touch, and despite having more seams across the thigh and shin area, it still delivers the “weightless coverage and unrestricted movement” that Lululemon tights are so often praised for. The roomy side and waistband pockets are functional but discreet details that allow you to store essentials like a credit card, phone, and house keys. 

    What customers say: “Favorite Workout Legging: I’ve tried several leggings from Lulu for Crossfit style workouts. I have both Wunder Under and Wunder Train. These are hands down my fave so far. So much so, I ordered two more pairs. Pros: They stay up. Even without that drawstring and I didn’t have any issues with sliding or rolling. Super comfy, I love the Nulux material. Cons: None that I’ve found so far.” —Tiffgurl77
