Finding the perfect pair of tights is no easy feat. There isn’t a single item of clothing in a woman’s wardrobe that works harder than a pair of workout pants. The fit is an important consideration as you want to feel held and smoothed out in all the right places. However, performance is a major factor too: can they support you through everything from walking the dog to a high-energy Pilates session?

If you’ve ever found yourself pondering these exact questions while standing in the changeroom, we have found the answer: the lululemon Align™ range.

The lululemon Align™ collection is the perfect balance of form and function to see you through everything from yoga to Pilates, coffee with a friend or simply going about your daily errands. 

We’re not the only ones who have found themselves reaching for Align™ tights on an almost-daily basis. A quick review of the brand’s website reveals that the Align™ range has received thousands of five-star reviews. Ahead, we explain what makes them stand out from the rest.

The Fit

Part of the appeal of the Align™ range is the variety of lengths and variations made to fit every body type. For those seeking a more classic style, the Align™ High-Rise Pant comes in a 25″ or 28″ length, designed to sit either above or on the ankle, depending on your height. 

There’s also a 25″ version of the Align™ High-Rise Pant with Pockets if you need somewhere easily accessible to stash your keys.

For those who gravitate towards yoga, the Align™ Super-High-Rise Pant will provide additional core support while remaining ultra-comfortable, even during the most complex of balancing poses.

Each style within the Align™ range is made with minimal seams and maximum stretch for unrestricted movement on and off the mat. It’s this seamless engineering that ensures the garment fits where it should and stays put, so you can focus on your movements.

Superior Feel

As the name suggests, Align™ tights are designed to be form-fitting and that’s where lululemon’s signature buttery-soft Nulu™ fabric comes in. Soft and lightweight, Nulu fabric contains fine sweat-wicking yarns that ensure the tights feel both breathable and comfortable throughout your workout or entire day. 

Made To Flatter

While performance is important, we’d be lying if we didn’t admit that one of the most important criteria when choosing a pair of tights is that they flatter in all the right places, on and off the mat. 

Aligns™ are designed to give a streamlined silhouette with a light compressive knit to help you look and feel your best, and it’s why they have a legion of loyal, card-carrying devotees. 

They pair just as well with the Align™ Cropped Cami Tank Top as they do with a white t-shirt and blazer combo. Dress them up or dress them down, depending on what your day has in store.
