Purchasing a pair of leggings on Amazon sounds simple, but it can actually be an overwhelming process. With over 30,000 options to choose from (yes, seriously) and dozens that have thousands of positive reviews, it can be difficult to decide on the best pair to add to your cart. The good news? We'd say it's pretty hard to go wrong with so many highly rated pairs at your disposal.
If you're not familiar with leggings on Amazon, there are quite a few brands that have created a name for themselves on the site, like Satina, Leggings Depot, and Colorfulkoala. The most impressive thing about these brands is that they don't just have one pair of leggings that customers love — they usually have a few, plus other activewear with good ratings, too. So while you may have never heard of them, there are a bunch of under-the-radar brands that Amazon shoppers trust thanks to the high quality of their products and budget-friendly price points. Most of the popular leggings on Amazon cost $20 to $25 and several range even lower than that, so it's cost-effective to stock up on your favorites.
Whether you're looking for soft and casual leggings to lounge in, stretchy and moisture-wicking varieties for workouts, or affordable alternatives to your favorite pricey pair, there's a good chance you'll find them on Amazon. We rounded up the eight best leggings on the site that shoppers love, including options with roomy pockets (you're welcome) and that viral TikTok pair:

Best Overall: Satina High-Waisted Leggings
It's no easy feat to become the best leggings on Amazon, but Satina's high-waisted pair has done it. The well-known pair always holds one of the top three spots on the site's best-selling leggings chart, and is also a best-seller in the plus-size leggings category. Along with their stunning amount of five-star ratings (34,000 and counting!), the leggings have other impressive qualities — they come in 25 colors and three different styles, including full length, full length with pockets, and capris.
Despite the fact that they come in only two sizes, one size and one size plus, customers say they have a "massive stretch factor" and "fit perfectly." Many shoppers rave that the leggings are the softest they've ever owned, even saying that "you have to buy these just to feel them." Plus, hundreds of reviews compare the Satina pair to LuLaRoe leggings, saying that they're just as soft and comfortable for a fraction of the price.

Best Squat-Proof: 90 Degree by Reflex Leggings
Shoppers looking for thick leggings that aren't see-through love this pair from 90 Degree by Reflex. The stretchy leggings are made out of a moisture-wicking nylon and spandex fabric blend, have a hidden waistband pocket, and come in 24 colors. They have a gentle, compressive fit that "doesn't budge," and a slight luster that one shopper described as "in-between" spandex and cotton. Shoppers say they're very supportive and fit like a "glove."
"It's hard to find leggings that are squat-proof, thick, lined, durable, cute, and don't lose stretch over time," one customer wrote. "I love these because they're all those things and more. And by more, I mean they also come with pockets."
The same reviewer also mentioned that they "have quite a bit of cellulite, and these smooth out all my dimples and any unevenness."

Amazon reviewers have been adding photos of themselves wearing the leggings with a bottle of wine in the pocket to show how spacious and stretchy they are — and customers say the bottles stay put, too. One customer who put a bottle in each side pocket said: "I ran up and down my stairs three times. NO shifting. They only slightly shifted when I jumped up and down. It's love. Buy these."
The Gym People leggings come in a few styles, including full-length, capri, fleece-lined, and "naked feeling," which is made with a more lightweight fabric. They come in various colors, and are available in sizes XS to 3XL.

Best "Lululemon Dupes"
Colorfulkoala High-Waisted Leggings
When it comes to finding a "Lululemon quality" alternative, Amazon customers believe Colorfulkoala's high-waisted leggings are one of the best. The "buttery soft" leggings are best-sellers in three categories and have racked up more than 22,000 five-star ratings. Made out of a polyester and spandex fabric blend, the leggings were designed to give you a "naked sensation" and provide "unrestricted movement," according to the brand. Thousands of customers agree with those claims and note that they're smooth and stretchy.
"So, I am a bit of a Lululemon addict (hey, don't judge me!) and I'm used to paying $100 for a good quality yoga legging because I like things that will last," one shopper wrote. "However, I took a gamble on these for $29 due to such rave reviews, and I'm absolutely AMAZED and glad I did. These fit just as [well] as the Lululemon Aligns, and have an incredibly similar, nearly identical fabric to Lulu's Nulu (which is buttery soft) ... these are hands down a WINNER for soft, comfy yoga pants that fit like a dream!"

They come in 37 pretty matte colors, including stylish leopard print options, and are available in sizes XXS to XXL. Out of over 2,500 five-star reviews, more than 300 shoppers compared them to Lululemon, with many saying that they're a "good dupe."
One shopper raved: "They are the best alternative to Lulu's that I have ever found — [they have] more compression than the Align leggings, but they look pretty similar in style. They are flattering and the colors they come in are stunning! I've been asked if they are Lululemon frequently, and people are always so surprised when I tell them I got them on Amazon."

Best Jogger-Style: Leggings Depot Jogger Leggings
If you want leggings that lean more towards the fit and feel of joggers, over 39,000 Amazon customers recommend these Leggings Depot pants. Not only do the pants look like a legging-jogger hybrid, but they classify as both on Amazon, too — they're the site's best-selling leggings and best-selling sweatpants. Needless to say, they're the best of both worlds. The Leggings Depot joggers come in several styles, but the ones shoppers love the most is the Activeflex design, due to its slim fit. The pants have a high rise, cuffed ankles, and three pockets: two on the side and one in the waistband. Shoppers love that they're "silky soft" and flattering, and a little more roomy than your average leggings.
"Imagine the most comfortable sweats you own. Now picture the cutest leggings you could ever want. Combine the two, and you have these glorious leggings/sweats," one customer wrote. "They are so soft, comfortable, cozy, and adorable. I'm still in quarantine, and I'm not exaggerating when I say I have worn a pair of these every single day since I got them. I sleep in them. I wear them around the house." The same reviewer added, "If you are hesitating, don't. I may never change out of mine again."
