Available in sizes 6 to 24, the leggings – which come with a phone pocket on the leg and a zip-back pocket, hurrah! – are high-waisted, super-supportive and use a blackout (read: squat-proof), moisture-wicking fabric to ensure you can workout in comfort and feel fresh while doing so.
Did we mention the pockets?
We have a very strict criteria when it comes to gym leggings. They must be supportive without being restrictive; sweat-wicking without feeling like we’re wearing tarpaulin; and squat-proof without being too thick. Oh, and pockets. They must have pockets. Why do so many gym leggings not have pockets?!
So, that being said, let us introduce you to our new favourite pair of workout leggings that we wish we’d discovered sooner.
The M&S Go Move Gym Leggings are somewhat of a cult product – they’ve been snapped up 60,000 times in the last year alone (!!!), have an absolute ton of five-star reviews, and are the most popular product from the brand’s Goodmove activewear line. Plus, they’re an absolute steal at just £25, which is music to our ears when you consider some of the eye-watering price tags gym leggings can often come with.
They’re ideal for any type of workout, whether you’re into weightlifting, running, HIIT, or are more of yoga lover. And the reviews speak for themselves.
“Very comfortable running leggings, fit well and true to size. Like there is a pocket on side of leg. Nice quality material,” says one.
“These leggings are great,” says another. “Comfortable and good quality. The pocket on the side and the zipped one in the back are very useful. Got them for my daughter too and they passed her ‘can’t see my knickers when I bend over test!’”.
Everyone knows the knicker test is a true sign of high-quality leggings. We wouldn’t be without ours.
