Not everyone knows this struggle, but it is very real: when girls with curves work out and their leggings start slipping down down down.
This happens to me all the time (I've got a booty). Before I know it, the waistband is around my hips and the crotch is mid-thigh. The last thing you want to focus on when you're trying to get a good sweat is having to constantly pull them back up. Blergh!
Luckily, I've had some time to road test countless pairs to find the brands and styles that actually stay up. Here they are >>
