The best way to find the perfect opaque leggings is by looking up the most positive reviewed pairs out there. If you've been looking for workout tights that won't go sheer, you're in luck because that's exactly what we've done. Keep reading to see which workout tights garnered the best reviews online, so the next time you're working out, your focus can stay where it should be: on working up a sweat.

Within its 448 glowing reviews on Amazon, this pair of leggings was most praised for its perfectly sized phone pocket. This reviewer couldn't have said it better: "I thought these seemed well made, not see through, and had the all-important pocket. My phone fit snugly but not so tight that it was a hassle to get it in and out. I want these in shorts, too." Available in sizes XS to XL. When Nike names a pair of workout tights "hyperwarm," they'd better live up to the claim.

Available in sizes XS to XL. Customers love this retro-inspired design of this pair. One user explained how well they fit, too: "I'm 5'8 and 150 pounds. The medium size fit great.

I'm a tall, curvy woman who often has a hard time finding running pants that stay in place during my runs. However, my running pants worries are over." Available in sizes M to XL. Fans of these leggings by Beyond Yoga rave about the buttery soft fabric and sturdy construction. One user commented that they were "not see through at all." Available in sizes XXS to XL.

Available in sizes XS to L. Customers go so far as to describe these leggings as the best they've ever owned. "They fit me perfectly. I never have to worry about these capri staying in place when I run or do yoga. They are true to size. I've had my original pair for almost 2 years and they still look great!" wrote one reviewer. Available in size 1 (18W to 20W). "I think I can wash these 100 times and they will still look great," says one fan of these capri leggings by Lucy.

For the price, customers felt compelled to spend a bit more than they usually would on leggings, given Alo's amazing quality. One user got technical about the material, explaining, "The fabric of the uppers is substantial and not slippery which is important for aerial hoop and silks. The lower part has plenty of length to wear over your heels and still scrunch. I get compliments on them every time I wear them. Expensive but a worthy quality investment." Available in sizes XS to L. Ivy Park's workout tights are a fan favorite for their comfy material and cool logo placement. One user said, "Great stretch, not see through and keep me warm. Perfect for working out or lounging around, I use them for both." Available in sizes XS to XL.
