Whether you consider yourself thick or curvy, you’ve likely experienced that annoying feeling of your leggings falling down. Good news: there are, in fact, leggings that don’t fall down. Whether you’re walking, working out, getting up or sitting, you can find leggings that stay put.

Oftentimes, being plus-size means a lot of the fashion targeted to you can be very hit or miss — especially when it comes to leggings. Luckily, there are a few pairs that shoppers love (and that I’ve personally tried) that won’t force you to pull your leggings up with every move you make.

Why they’re plus-size-friendly: Amazon options can be hard to nab in plus sizes, especially above a size 3X. However, this pair from KQUZO is exclusively designed for sizes 1X to 5X. These popular leggings have
4.3 out of five stars and almost 500 reviews. One happy customer explained, “The pants fit my very generous curves (size 20-22) and my smaller waist at the same time.”

Why they’re plus-size-friendly: These ultra-comfy bad boys make you feel like you’re wearing nothing, but they still hold you in. High-waisted and moisture-wicking, the Danica Mesh Leggings also feature two geo mesh cut-outs. There’s even a hidden pocket in the stitching.

Why they’re plus-size-friendly: Okay, hear me out! I’m a size 20-22 and these Core 7/8 Leggings in an XL from Outdoor Voices fit me like a glove. Not only that, these leggings offer tummy control and even enhance the curves you already have. Plus, one shopper said these leggings don’t slip down on you.

“I can’t stop buying them in every color!” the shopper wrote. “The band is super compressive, but the leg portion is stretchy enough for any activity. The best part is the band doesn’t slip down. In fact, I feel like the sweatier I am, the better the waistband stays in place. These are expensive, but worth it to me.”
