A pair of $54 leggings from UK-based outlet Marks & Spencer have been heralded as a workout essential by Australian fitness fans – who say the tights are better than high-end products.
The M&S Collection Perfect Blackout Cropped Leggings are three-quarter length tights that not only look stylish but have also been praised for their affordable price point and good quality.
Those who love high-intensity forms of exercise will be pleased to know the tights are made from a breathable fabric that pulls moisture away from the body.

Testers of the tights said that they are suitable for a number of different sports.
These include walking, Pilates, yoga, barre, strength training or circuit training.
Those who have tried them online said the tights are especially good at remaining black – and others praised the hidden back pocket, which is perfect for a mobile phone.
The tights come with a handy back pocket which features a zip enclosure that’s big enough to hold a cellphone
The leggings hold a three-and-half star rating out of five on the M&S website, with reviewers saying they are ‘excellent’ as well as praising them for their fit.
‘Excellent very supporting leggings. As good as much more expensive brands,’ wrote one person.
‘They’re very tight when pulling up the legs but once you get them up there they’re great and the colour is a dream, you rarely find a workout legging in this colour,’ said another.
The tights feature a high waistband which makes them idea for forms of exercise where bending or squatting is requried
Others who had also purchased the tights and left reviews commented that the garment ran slightly smaller than expected.
‘Nice leggings – but had to return as very small fit – not much stretch I would buy a size up from usual size,’ said one.
Australian shoppers wishing to purchase the tights will be pleased to know M&S ships to Australia and there’s also a 35-day window for returning products.
