Girlfriend Collective leggings have long been a favorite of Strategist editors, readers, and personal trainers for their high-rise fit, sweat-wicking fabric, and inclusive size range. The brand’s seamless, buttery-soft Float Leggings and Juliet Bra are so flattering, in fact, that best-selling Luster author Raven Leilani told us she can’t live without them: “There’s no compliment better than a compliment from another woman, and whenever I wear this [set] I get the most compliments from other women,” Leilani says. “I feel like it suits many body types — you don’t have to have a perfect body to wear this and look good in it.” Girlfriend Collective leggings don’t often go on sale, which is why we were delighted to find the Float Leggings and their matching bra in this goes-with-everything dark gray for 30 percent off at Shopbop. They’re still in stock in most sizes from XS to 6XL, and reviewers say they fit true to size. (We also spotted some other colors on sale, like peach, coral, and this mustardy almost-green the brand erroneously describes as “fern,” though available sizing for each may be more limited.) Best of all, they ship free.
