If you’re a fitness fanatic, women’s sports leggings are an essential part of your gym kit. But it’s important to make sure you’re getting the right fit and quality. The ideal pair of workout leggings will flatter your figure, feel soft against your skin and move with you during exercise without pinching or creasing. You should also look for breathable fabrics that will keep you cool as you sweat, plus UV protection to avoid harmful rays.
For high-intensity workouts, choose a pair of tights that are squat-proof and stretchy. These womens sport leggings from Lululemon are designed for running, with a ‘barely-there’ Nulux fabric that’s both lightweight and quick-drying. They also have a flattering waistband that won’t dig in and an antibacterial finish, so they don’t smell after a workout.
he Evolution of Leggings: From Fashion Trend to Everyday Comfort
If your main workout is a run, opt for some running leggings that hug your legs as you move, to boost your performance. These premium tights from Swiss brand On feature a streamlined design with hidden pockets, plus cleverly-placed L-shaped stitching around the knees that aids forward movement.
When shopping for leggings for a workout, consider whether you want a full-length pair or a capri style. Some gym leggings come in a 7/8 length that finishes just above the ankle, so you can wear them with trainer socks and still have plenty of room to move your feet during exercise. Other leggings finish just above the knee, a halfway point between short and full-length gym pants.
