Ad failed to load

There's a pair of leggings out there for every occasion, personality, and type of workout — and for every day of the week — and that's just the way we like it. And there, among all of the greatest leggings on the market, you'll find the best high-waisted leggings, which keep your belly button and regions below warm and covered up.

Maybe you're tired of exposing yourself every time you're in downward dog. Or maybe you're totally fine with exposing yourself, but your gym's thermostat seems to be perpetually broken and you could really use a little warmth on your body during savasana. There are a hundred reasons why high-waisted leggings are a great idea, and we've found seven of the best pairs on Amazon.

Whether you need fleece winter leggings to keep you cozy on chilly runs, breathable, leggings you can wear to work and the gym, or cropped yoga leggings with pockets, you'll find both (and more) below.

1The Best Cropped Leggings With Pockets For Yoga

Downward dog is way more comfortable with these high-waisted cropped leggings, which are made with a quality opaque fabric and four-way stretch. No matter how much you move around on the mat, these pants will stay put on your body — a crotch gusset and super-wide waist panel provide additional support, while a convenient outside pocket is just roomy enough to accommodate your phone and keys. These Power Flex pants are designed with a moisture-wicking combination of polyester, spandex, and nylon and come in more than 30 colors that range from muted charcoal grey to vivid fuchsia and purple.

2The Best Compression Leggings For Aching Muscles

The technology used in the design of these high-waisted compression leggings increases blood flow to your poor, achy muscles, which can relieve pain and help you power through your workout. Made from a moisture-wicking blend of polyester, nylon, and spandex, these are the second-skin leggings that feel tight and supportive and won't bunch up or let you down by becoming see-through over time. Reviewers say the high ribbed waistband seems to cover even more of your body than similar leggings, and that the overlock stitching detail provides a flat fit that makes them look more expensive.

3The Best High-Waisted Leggings With Cooling Details

The designer who first came up with the idea to offer workout attire with sheer, transparent elements should be crowned royalty — and these amazing high-waisted leggings do the design justice with cooling perforated panels along the calf. They're naturally moisture wicking, which adds to the cooling experience, have a protective reflective accent at the hem (perfect for late evening runs), and boast four-way stretch. The waistband features an internal drawcord and back zipper pocket with two compartments — no more having to choose between packing your phone and a credit card.

4The Best Opaque Leggings That Won't Show Any Skin

One word keeps popping up among reviews of these quality leggings: opaque — as in, so opaque, you can squat to your heart's content and no one standing behind you will get even a glimpse of skin. These 28-inch high-waisted workout pants also feature light compression, a gusset crotch, and interlock seams that prevent chafing during workouts. They come in a variety of colors and fabrics and even have hidden pockets in their waistbands.

5The Best Leggings For Running That Won't Chafe Skin

If you're into running, there's a solid chance you're also into leggings that won't chafe and irritate your thighs. These high-waisted running leggings have interlocking seams that force the edges to lay flat, which eliminates the chafing problem altogether. They also have a wide waistband with a hidden inner pocket just big enough for a key. Choose from 18 colors that include space dye designs. One reviewer says these are the ideal leggings for running and lifting weights, as they always stay in place during tough workouts.

6The Best Fleece-Lined Leggings For Cold Weather Workouts

They're affordable and as warm as leggings get: These basic, fleece-lined leggings come in a pack of three and are ideal for the fall, winter, and cold weather sports or activities. They have a crotch gusset, high waist, and compression band that fits snugly and feels secure during any workout. Reviewers say the one-size-fits-all design actually stretches to accommodate most sizes and that you should expect an extremely thick fabric that holds up in frigid weather.

7The Best Leggings For Tall Sizes That Aren't Suffocating

Made from an uber stretchy and breathable modal fabric, these leggings are far lighter than pants made from polyester and other synthetic materials. They're full ankle-length leggings that come in seven shades and are longer than most leggings, making them ideal for tall sizes. And if you love your high waist to be as high as possible, look no further: These can be pulled up to your bra if the mood calls for it.
