Finding the best leggings can be harder than the actual workout — and finding a great pair that slims down that waistline? Even tougher. Add pockets to that and you have a puzzle to solve. Have no fear! We know that Amazon reviewers are a vocal bunch, so we scoured the site to bring you highly rated options that hold in that tummy and have superior storage space built right in! Seriously, customer reviews are gushing over these pants.

Quick overview

You can't beat the comfort of pocketed leggings, but when you're wearing something that figure-hugging, they should have extra reinforcement around the waist — we could all use a little more confidence when we're running errands and walking the dog! And that's just as important as having pockets for all your essentials.

Ahead are five great shopper-approved pocket leggings that are not only tummy-taming, they're sweat-wicking and super-soft. Who knows: This might be the motivation you need to sign up for barre tonight.


Iuga High Waisted Capri Leggings with Pockets

These leggings have a wide, high-rise waistband to give you maximum tummy control at maximum comfort.
$22 at Amazon

In addition to hiding a convenient pocket, the waistband offers superior tummy control. And there are two large pockets on the sides, too. The fabric is not see-through, like so many other high waisted leggings we've noticed on the market. Super stretchy and packed with compression, these come in different colors and fit a wide range of body types while sculpting your bottom for a flattering fit.

"I am on my 6th pair, not because they wear out fast but because of how awesome they are.," reports a rave reviewer. "Super comfortable, flattering, breathable and soft. I started wearing these leggings to work out a couple of years ago and never looked at another brand. They hold in my tummy without feeling tight and the pockets on both legs are indispensable. Even after having my baby they hold my mom pooch in. They wash well, retain shape and the seams are strong. I really can't say enough. You don't need to look any further for great leggings."


Ewedoos High Waist Tummy Control Leggings with Pockets

These tummy-control leggings have two outer pockets on each side plus a hidden inner pocket in the waistband and they come in 26 colors.
$24 at Amazon

We can see why these pocket leggings are Amazon bestsellers: The super soft, opaque fabric wicks away moisture while the high waist doubles as tummy control for a flattering fit. And in addition to side pockets, there's a hidden pocket in the waistband!

Says a five-star fan: "The only leggings I’ve ever worn before were LuLaRoe, so I bought these based on good reviews and because they have pockets. I was not disappointed! The fabric has a nice silky feel. They don’t get too hot and they hold their shape really well. They do control my belly, but are still comfy enough to lounge around in. The pockets are big enough to hold an iPhone with a chunky case... and my keys...and my wallet...and my lip gloss. They shipped fairly fast and I haven’t noticed any defect in the manufacturing. I’ve washed them twice and they look and feel as good as the first time I tried them on. Perfect for a mom on the go looking for comfort and convenience. They’d probably be nice to work out in too, I wouldn’t really know."


Colorfulkoala High Waisted Tummy Control Workout Leggings

These leggings are made with four-way-stretch fabric for unrestrictive movement but have enough binding capabilities for a seamless waistband that can hold in your belly.
$25 at Amazon

These wildly popular, incredibly soft leggings have generous side pockets and a seamless high waist that supports you without digging. No matter how long you wear them, your stomach won't be suffering in silence. They're lightweight and moisture-wicking with four-way stretch for a comfy fit, and they come in a variety of color options. Shoppers say they feel like a second skin.

"HOLY MACRO!" a shopper wrote. "They fit! And not just fit, they fit perfectly!!!! The stretch in these leggings is nothing like I’ve ever seen, and the hold makes me feel like the 175 lbs I’m aspiring to be. They hold perfectly but they’re not tight, they stretch but they are not see-through at all!"


Fengbay High Waist Yoga Pants

The high waist design keeps your tummy tucked in while conforming to your curves. The fabric is a blend of polyester and polyurethane for smooth, low-friction, comfortable wear.

Standout features include three pockets, a waistband that doesn't roll down and compression technology that improves blood circulation and helps release muscle fatigue. Add in the moisture-wicking properties and you have the perfect pair.

"I will die in these pants," raved a happy shopper. "The high waistband slims my tummy and doesn't give me a muffin top while being comfortingly tight. It's like wearing a hug, but on your butt. And. They. Are. Sooooooooooooo soft."
