If you're on the hunt for a pair of leggings that are comfortable and flattering, allow us to introduce Marks & Spencer's Magic Shaping High Waisted Leggings. Since their conception in 2019, they've repeatedly sold out as customers can't get enough of the budget-friendly price tag of £22.50, along with the flattering and supportive design. Now, they're back with a few new upgrades for 2024 and are flying off shelves once more

Finding a quality pair of leggings that ticks all the boxes is no easy task. They need to be thick enough to avoid VPL (Visible Panty Line) and hold you in to create a flattering shape, while still being comfortable. Somehow, M&S has managed to solve all these issues with the aptly named Magic Shaping Leggings, and the hundreds of reviews speak for themselves.

They're available in two colours, black and navy, across M&S' petite, regular and long ranges

Some shoppers have even already gone back to purchase multiple pairs of the wardrobe essential, so if you think you may want to try them we'd add a pair to your basket ASAP.

Why we rate it

These Magic Shaping Leggings have a high-waisted, elasticated waistband that is not only incredibly comfortable, but will also stay in place, so you won't be pulling up your leggings every five minutes.

The stretchy leggings have been crafted with tummy control and subtle darts at the waistband to help create sculpt and smooth your figure and make you feel your most confident.

One shopper even said: "These give me such confidence on a day when I’m not feeling as trim as I’d like to be! So flattering and comfortable."

Many customers have praised the supportive shape too, with no baggy knees or bunched up ankles to worry about.

The leggings are also very versatile and can be dressed down with a shirt and trainers for the office, or paired with a sparkly top and boots for a smarter, evening outfit.

One shopper recently purchased the leggings as they have been "looking to channel the Claudia Winkleman look from Traitors". To do so, pair the M&S leggings with a sleek black blazer and some heeled ankle boots, add a touch of eyeliner, and you're all set.

Available in black and navy, they come in sizes 6 to 22 and in M&S's petite, long and regular lengths, so you can be sure to find the right fit for you.

What the reviews say

More than 190 shoppers have awarded the new Magic Leggings five-star reviews, with some buying multiple pairs. Here's what some had to say:

  • "Best leggings I’ve ever owned! I’m obsessed! I’m getting another pair. They tuck you in in all the right places and are very comfortable."

  • "These are a great value pair of leggings which are flatteringly thick and sturdy material - love them and how they suck everything in!"

  • "Purchased a second pair of these straight away. I wear on repeat for work. Much thicker and more support than traditional leggings as you would expect for the price. They still look good after numerous washes and have not faded. Best of all the knees don’t go baggy!"

  • "Love these leggings they are very comfortable, I prefer wearing these to wearing jeans, have a couple of pairs, they are great for walking in as they are easier to tuck into your boots."

  • "Great for keeping you in without feeling uncomfortable."
