Best Pairs Of Non See-Through Leggings For Full, Flattering Coverage

We may love wearing pants for yoga or Pilates class, but a great pair of leggings is so much more.

Leggings can be how we prefer to travel (ever try to do a red-eye flight in skinny jeans? No thanks!), how we do our errands, and the best way to go straight from our morning workout to brunch with the girls.

Bu not all leggings for women are created equally.

There are those that show a bit too much butt when we bend down, or are too sheer for our liking. We begin to wonder if we're wearing pants or lingerie!

The ideal pair would be non-see through leggings or leggings that are almost like shapewear. They provide coverage, shape us, and are comfortable. But these are shapewear we wear on the outside.

From capris to full-on leggings, shiny leather to zippered, in various colors and patterns and fits, these are the leggings we're obsessed with, whether or not we actually do hit that gym.

Here are the best non-see through leggings you should add to your wardrobe immediately.
