What are they?

Moisture-wicking and fitted with a no-slip waistband, these stretchy leggings will keep you cool while working out, running errands or simply lounging. With figure-sculpting technology, these are designed for more than just working out.

With a hidden pocket and smooth, flatlock seaming, these pants will quickly become the most comfortable thing you own. Available in a number of colours and crops, there’s a pair for pretty much any occasion.

These are often a staple of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which kicks off in August — but they’re also one of the first items to sell out, so we wouldn’t judge you if you bought them now.

What people are saying

With more than 6,500 reviews, these pants are an undeniable best-seller with customers raving about the fit and quality.

“Hands down the best legging on the market. They are so soft, yet so sturdy. I still have an old pair from 10 years ago. They last forever. Best thing about them is they aren’t see-through! Do yourself a favour and get a pair – you won’t regret it,” reads one review.

“Purchased a pair of these about six months ago and liked them so much I bought two more! Great fit. I’m long-waisted and 5’10” so I need the length. These deliver!” adds another shoppers. Great for working out or casual wear. Doesn’t ride up or expose anything.”

While most reviews are positive, customers do recommend sizing down due to generous sizing.

“Zellas are my go-to leggings. They always fit perfectly and hold everything in. I’m typically a medium and I’m definitely bottom heavy, but I’m a small in these,” warns one fan.

“Very comfortable and well made but they fit slightly large – size down if you can,” echoes another.

The verdict

If you’re looking for ultimate comfort at an even lower price than usual, these leggings are great for home workouts or lounging. But, as reviewers warn, if you plan to purchase, you might want to size down for the optimum fit.
