If you’ve ever tapped on an Instagram post of a supermodel working out, aimlessly wondering where those cute leggings are from, I’d be willing to bet that, more often than not, said model will be sporting Alo Yoga, a relatively young LA brand with an outsized following.

Since its founding in 2007, the company has become a mainstay in both diehard yogi camps and the earth’s small but hyper-visible population of models and artists. Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, Chrissy Teigen, Jenna Dewan, Olivia Culpo, Hailey Beiber… the list of high-profile patrons goes on.

So, what gives?

To see for ourselves, we tested a few pairs of Alo Yoga Airlift leggings in our own (very normal) lives. The verdict: flattering, silky, and buttery soft. Despite the fact that they’re trend- and fashion-focused, that shouldn’t translate to impracticality; these leggings manage to look good and perform during exercise.

A few things to note if you’re looking to buy: some reviews note sweat showing through lighter colors; the capris run slightly longer than average; and the site sells out quickly. So, if you find something you love, it may be better not to wait. The company also has a 30-day return policy for unworn gear in case the fit isn’t perfect in person. And, lastly, if you’d like to get around the crowds and sellouts, check Nordstrom.
