As anyone who has ever worn leggings can attest to, not all leggings are created equal. More often than not, leggings aren't actually comfortable at all: Either they're too tight, too stiff, too constricting, too high, not high enough, or — worst of all — cursed with an uncomfortable seam line. To help make sure you never feel uncomfortable in your leggings again, stock your closet with the 18 pairs featured ahead. They're some of the most comfortable leggings under $20 on Amazon, so you can feasibly buy enough pairs for every day of the week.

Ahead, you'll find both workout-friendly yoga pants and dressy leggings that you could wear to work, in all manner of colors, styles, and prints. Some are designed with cool features, like smartphone pockets or mesh cutouts for added breathability, but what they all have in common is that they're comfortable, affordable, and come highly recommended by Amazon shoppers, who have left them hundreds (or in some cases, thousands) of positive reviews.
