Leggings have always been the ultimate comfort clothing - whether you're a gym-goer or not. But in recent weeks, due to the coronavirus and lockdown, sales of the stretchy pants have skyrocketed as we all choose to be comfy and ditch our old everyday wear. If you haven't invested yet, what are you waiting for? These are the high street leggings that are so good, you'll never want to go back to jeans!
H&M is one of the best places on the high street to shop for affordable activewear that doesn't sag or lose elasticity. We love this chic black option at just £17.99.
