Finish off a Christmas gift with these highly-rated 'squat-proof' leggings while they're only $20


A great pair of leggings is necessary at any age. It's one of those magical pieces of clothing that is a staple in every woman's closet. That's why when we find a high-quality pair that's as good for exercise as it is for everyday wear, we must share the news. Especially when they aren't the pricey name brands that usually get all the hype and will cost you north of $100. If you're looking for that one extra thing to add to the gift of a loved one, might we suggest the Sunzel leggings? Amazon is offering a great deal on these high-quality fan favorites (really, they have thousands of 5-star reviews!), which come in many colors and sizes. Right now, you can get most shades and sizes for just $20!

With four-way stretch, these leggings make it easy to move comfortably, no matter where your day takes you. A compression high waist helps smooth you out and doesn't roll down.

Why is this a good deal?

Many varieties of compression leggings from big brands will set you back up to $100 or more per pair. Not so with the Sunzels — for just $20 a pair, you'll get five-star quality at a bargain-basement price, meaning you can buy a few colors of these cuties for even less than you'd spend on one pair of another brand's. Plus, at up to 30% off now, these leggings are marked down the lowest they've been since Cyber Monday.

Why do I need these?

There's so much to love about these leggings. For starters, they're crafted from a polyester-spandex mix for a buttery-soft feel you can wear all day. They're also sweat-wicking and breathable, making them a great option for workouts.

The Sunzel leggings have four-way stretch to move with you, whether you're doing squats, jogging, yoga or just going about your day. They're full-length with a 28-inch inseam to give you plenty of coverage.

Worth noting: The leggings have a compression high waist that goes over your belly button for extra support and smoothing. There's also a hidden waistband pocket to hold things like your credit card and keys.

Choose from 38 different cool colors and patterns, ranging in sizes X-small to 3XL.

What reviewers say

More than 29,000 people swear by the Sunzel leggings' comfort and flexibility. "They are 100% squat proof! Super soft and comfy!" said a five-star fan.

Others swear they're a great alternative to the popular Lululemon Align leggings, which cost $98 or more. "I've dabbled and considered buying the Align leggings from Lulu but could never justify the price," said a happy customer. "I'm so glad I found these, because they have pockets and are JUST as soft as the Aligns."

Another satisfied shopper called the Sunzel leggings "better than Lululemon." They added, "These are the best leggings! They are softer than Lulus and they fit just like them, but a fraction of the cost." Snap up a pair on sale while you can!

Sunzel's leggings are sweat-wicking and breathable, so you don't have to worry about them weighing you down during your workout. A hidden waistband pocket is roomy enough for your credit card, keys and other essentials.
