lululemon first arrived on our shores last year from North America and since then have created quite a stir with their ‘Wunder Unders’. Although the brand won’t officially say it, A-listers such as Rosie Huntington-Whitely (pictured) swear these leggings give you the perfect bum. Engineered for serious stretch and recovery and with a wide comfort waist band, you can’t go wrong with the wunder under. £82


Launching in 2012, the creators of Hey Jo London wanted to create a range of leggings that could be worn day and night as well as to the gym. Not just a black or fluoro kind of girl? Hey Jo offers up a whole spectrum of gorgeous colours from Mikado yellow to Cinnabar red. Very on trend! From £105


Perhaps the most scientific of all the options, Bodyism launches the Octavia leggings last November on NET-A-PORTER’s dedicated fitness site, NET-A-SPORTER. When in contact with the skin, the Emana fabric in the leggings uses bio-active crystals in the microfibers to absorb body heat, and return it in the form of infra-red rays that actually promote collagen synthesis i.e working out in these babies help give smoother skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Oh and reduce muscle fatigue. £130


We all know ROXY for their incredible beachwear but did you know they make the most amazing sports leggings?

The quick drying material can be worn in water too. We’re loving this jellyfish pattern. £34.99
