There are many things we would deem magical about the much-loved high street store Marks & Spencer, from candyfloss grapes in the food hall to their super-soft cashmere at affordable prices.

However, one thing that really does defy the laws of physics is their aptly-named Magic Shaping High Waisted Leggings.

We used to live in leggings, then Mom jeans became a thing - but after renewing our love for loungewear over the past year, we’re back to loving leggings - and not just for our workouts.

Update your go-to wardrobe essentials with this flattering high-waisted pair, cut in a skinny fit with a covered waistband for a stylish touch.

And the reason they’re magic? Well, they’re crafted from stretchy fabric, part of the Magic range with tummy control.

Shoppers can’t seem to get enough, and neither can we.

Why we love it:

Finding a pair of high-waisted leggings that aren’t either too tight and digging into your stomach or too baggy and constantly falling down is no easy feat, so M&S’ triumph is not one to be sniffed at.

Not only are the leggings super-soft and comfortable, they look sleek and streamlined from the outside and are thick enough that you need never worry about your underwear showing through as you bend over.

Plus, they come in two colours - black and navy - which go with everything. 

And did we mention they're under £20 - coming in at a very affordable £19.50.  

What the reviews say:

With 672 reviews on the M&S website, it’s clear that shoppers love the leggings enough to take the time to express their love for them.
