There are many things we would deem magical about the much-loved high street store Marks & Spencer, from candyfloss grapes in the food hall to their super-soft cashmere at affordable prices.

However, one thing that shoppers are really calling magic - and in their droves - are their aptly-named Magic Shaping High Waisted Leggings.

We used to live in leggings, then mom jeans became a thing but now, thanks to lockdown, we’re back in leggings - and not just for our workouts.

Update your go-to wardrobe essentials with this flattering high-waisted pair, cut in a skinny fit with a covered waistband for a stylish touch.

And the reason they’re magic? Well, they’re crafted from stretchy fabric, part of the Magic range with tummy control.

Shoppers can’t seem to get enough, and neither can we.

Why we love it:

Finding a pair of high-waisted leggings that aren’t either too tight and digging into your stomach or too baggy and constantly falling down is no easy feat, so M&S’ triumph is not one to be sniffed at.

Not only are the leggings super-soft and comfortable, they look slick and streamlined from the outside and are thick enough that you need never worry about your underwear showing through as you bend over.

Plus, they come in three colours - black, charcoal and navy - meaning that we need never wear anything else while one pair is in the wash.

What the reviews say:

With almost 200 reviews on the M&S website, it’s clear that shoppers love the leggings enough to take the time to express their love for them.

  • “What amazing leggings these are! The fit is perfect, they are so comfortable, perfect for both - working from home and going for a hike. Not see-through at all, the material is very good quality and they make my butt look so good!”

  • “I got these to have something comfortable and stretchy to wear as I am 13 weeks pregnant and this hits the mark.”

  • “Good fit and they look smart. Nice to find leggings with a nice deep waistband and decent quality and weight, can be worn with short tops and I don't get the feeling that I've forgotten to put trousers on.”
