Whether you’re getting into a sport for the first time, joining a gym, yoga or dance class, or wish to continue your sporting hobby, there’s one thing you likely need to stock up on: gym clothes.

It’s tough to workout without at least the basic essentials - but they can be pricey.

Which is why, as much as we would love to solely shop at Lululemon and Sweaty Betty, we’ve turned to Amazon to find some more affordable workout gear.

We reckon we’ve hit gold with the IUGA Yoga Pants.

Why we rate it

These long length leggings are made with a wide, high rise tummy control waist band and opaque fabric (no visible pants here), which are perfect for all types of exercise.

They also feature pockets so you can store your essentials.

What’s more they are made from super soft, four way stretch material, which is moisture wicking to help you cool down after a sweaty session.

The addition of a gusset crotch and interlocking seams minimises any chaffing or rubbing to ensure optimum comfort while working out.

Colour-wise, you’re spoilt for choice. From black to blue, numerous shades of grey, red and pink, there are plenty of options. Sizes range from extra small to extra, extra large.

A cropped length version is also available, should you want something for the summer time.

The cherry on top is the affordable price tag. The cropped leggings are available to buy for £17.95 to £19.95, while longer length designs range from £16.10 to £26.95.

What the reviews say

The leggings have racked up over 30,000 glowing ratings, and boast almost 90% five-star reviews.

Here's what they say:

  • “Amazing. Great thickness and coverage, absolutely no see-throughness and lovely colours. So practical.”

  • “I’ve been searching for a pair of leggings with pockets for a while and decided to get a pair of these, honestly love them a lot. I will be buying another pair as they are ideal.”

  • "Thank goodness I've now found these! I think these have to be the best yoga pants/ leggings I've ever bought."

  • "A treasure! Perfect in every way that you can think of. Thread is strong, stitches are solid, perfect length, super stretch and fabric is exactly as they said it is.'

  • "I bought these for everyday use rather than exercise and they are quite flattering. The material is very soft to the touch, almost comparable to a very smooth fleece, but of course not as thick. They are not see-through at all, even when the fabric is stretched over my butt."
