Story highlights

This is one of the best finds we've run across so far during this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: The Zella Live In High Waist Leggings are on sale for just $38.90. They normally cost $59.

They're the leggings everyone's talking about — they're comfy, slimming and perfect for both casual or athletic wear. They have a 4.5-star rating from almost 6,000 reviews on Nordstrom, and a ton of glowing reviews.

What makes these things so special? For starters, they come in two versatile colors — black and green — making them easy to pair with most workout tops. They also feature the high-waist fit that's currently so popular with gym goers and yoga enthusiasts. That added bit of fabric provides extra support and coverage and goes perfectly with a cropped top.

As for the material, the Live In High Waisters feature a moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool and a no-slip waistband that helps hold them in place when you're on the move. Zella describes them as "figure-sculpting," and reviewers seem to agree that they are rather flattering.

Zella, a Nordstrom-exclusive athletic wear brand, isn't often available at such a steep markdown, so this is a nice opportunity to snag a pair. (Actually, this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale features a number of discounted fitness items that are rarely discounted.)
