I’m Obsessed With Amazon’s Insanely Comfortable Build-Your-Own Leggings

One of the best perks of working at Health is that I'm lucky enough to test a lot of activewear.

Mesher’s left arm ends at the base of her wrist due to symbrachydactyly, a rare condition that causes the underdevelopment of limbs in the womb. "Growing up, I dealt with a lot of bullying," says the Portland, Ore., native. But she eventually recognized that the way people reacted to...
