The Best Workout Pants
Looking for a functional yet figure-flattering pair that you can wear to the gym and beyond? No sweat(s)! These styles go the distance.
Look for: A wide waistband and a higher rise to hold in a muffin top and smooth the midsection, says Karyn Riale, a New York City–based retail buyer for the Shops at Equinox. For more belly flattening, try pants with built-in stomach-control panels.
If you’re thicker in the middle, the stretchy, padded waistband on these Capris won’t dig into your sides.
