Can I Find Leggings That Don’t Roll Down?


Hey, gang! Happy, happy weekend. I plan to sit back and relax the best way I know how — some cozy blankets and Youtube, of course. Our latest video was just published and it’s not just good (as I sit cracking up at Laura’s commentary), but it’s exactly the topic I’ve struggled with for YEARS. What freaking leggings don’t roll down? Do they even exist?

I’m getting quite sick of pulling my leggings up every. single. time. I stand up. Don’t even get me started on what they do during workouts. I eventually decided it was an impossible feat that I’d learn to deal with. But thankfully, we have Laura to do some tried-and-true testing for us.

Putting It To The Test: Leggings That Don’t Roll Down

I started to think maybe it was just a ‘me’ problem until Laura talked about it in our weekly team meeting and (thankfully) she whipped it up into a video where she tries out five different leggings (with more to come in the future). They’re such a big part of my wardrobe, that I can’t just give ’em up! But I would prefer if they were a little less…annoying. What’s the verdict you might be asking? Head on over to our channel to see Laura put it to the test (burpees included). 

Psst — curious about everything Laura’s wearing? You can find this latest video here on our Youtube channel. Just click “More” in the description and you’ll find allll of the outfit details and handy shopping links.

  1. PLEASE continue this search!!! I’m with you, 5’3” and 46, short waisted and every legging I own rolls down, it’s so frustrating working out and constantly pulling my leggings back up. Thank you for this video and can’t wait to see more!

  2. Athleta elation ultra high rise leggings stay up for me! the rise is so high it comes up to my bra (5’4 and short waisted) and covers my entire belly. I think that’s why they stay up — my belly is completely contained so it can’t jiggle the waist down. 😂

  3. FYI, I am usually a size medium, but find I need to size up to a large in Aerie. I think their clothes are cut for teens, lol. I just got the Beyond Yoga spacedye and they did not roll for me! I am realizing there is no perfect legging that universally does not roll, it’s like an art to find the perfect legging that works for your body. So hard though!

  4. Two words – HOLD UP – roll on body adhesive on amazon. life changing! holds your leggings up, you can take them down to use the bathroom & stick them back no problem. strap issue? hold up. shirt falls off your shoulder? hold up. strapless bra won’t stay up? yup hold up.

  5. This is such good content! I always pay attention to Laura’s posts because I have a similar build… I love the Beyond Yoga leggings but they roll down a good 10 times in my average workout. This search is GOLD!
