When it comes to hunting down the best petite gym leggings, finding the right fit can be tricky. Well, no longer. Gym leggings are the best staple a sweat-loving person can invest in and we refuse to settle for rolled-up, floor-trailing ones, because who needs ill-fitting bottoms distracting you during your HIIT class.

So, kiss goodbye to behind-the-knee bunching and say sayonara to double-folded waistbands. Because WH has rounded up the 22 best petite workout leggings that fit and flatter, no DIY adjustments needed. Whether you're looking for a supportive squat-proof legging, or one that'll keep you cool as your internal mercury starts rising (hello, burpee tuck jumps) we've found the best petite gym leggings for you.

What do 7/8 leggings mean?

Before we jump in, let's do a quick refresh on what different legging lengths mean.

First up, there's the standard length that fits taller people well but isn't great for everyone. Especially not if you're slightly shorter. 7/8 length leggings mean that the tights have been designed to be shorter than the long length by 1/8th of an inch, which can be the difference between bunches behind the knees and having to roll up the ankles.
