How To Choose Workout Leggings

Leggings are always in style when it comes to exercising outdoors, working out in the gym, and for your yoga or Pilates class. These comfortable and versatile bottoms are a go-to choice and a fashion staple for many, not only while working out but also in everyday outfits. They come in a range of styles, materials, lengths, and designs, but one thing is consistent: they are easy to wear and highly adaptable.

While working out, we want to be as comfortable as possible while we burn off the calories, get hot and sweaty, tone up and move our bodies, so it is important to have comfortable and accommodating workout clothes in our wardrobes when we're planning on hitting the gym. How do we choose the right leggings to work out in? Here we will take a look at what you should look for when choosing your workout leggings.

Flexibility

While working out, you don’t want to have a wardrobe malfunction, so it is important that your leggings are stretchy, durable, and a good fit. You don’t want to be squatting and have a non-flexible pair of leggings fail on you by tearing. The key is to make sure that you choose a flexible pair of leggings that will work with your body while you are exercising. You will also want to make sure that they are not see-through; if you can see your skin through the fabric when you bend your knee when trying on your leggings in bright light, they may be see-through in other areas. Go for a pair that is made of a comfortable and flexible material that fits you well.

Comfort

You will want your leggings to be as comfortable as possible. Having them too tight will not allow the comfort that you desire, nor will having them falling while you are exercising. Therefore, it is essential to get the right size for you. Go for a set of high-waist leggings like the Green High-Waist Multi Printed Yoga Training and Workout Leggings. High-waisted leggings will provide extra support and prevent your leggings from falling around your hips and being loose and uncomfortable there while you’re out running or doing squats in the gym. Find the perfect fit for you, make sure to try them on, and make a seat with your legs to see if they slide down or if they are too tight.

Fabric

For working out, synthetic materials such as nylon, polyester, spandex, or lycra are best as they are often more stretchy and more durable than those made from cotton or natural materials. Nylon and polyester are also known as being moisture-wicking or sweat-wicking. This means that the material moves the moisture away from your skin, which is perfect for when you’re working out and sweating. The mix of nylon and spandex in these Black Seamless Training Workout Leggings is a great combination for durability and flexibility

Style

Once you have found the perfect, comfortable fit in your leggings, and you have chosen a pair that you know will work well for your workout, why not see if there are different styles or designs available so you look and feel good in the gym? Solid black leggings are a great staple for your workout wardrobe and a popular option for many people, but there are some great designs and bright and bold colors and patterns available, like these Damask Multicolor High Waist Yoga Workout Leggings, which will add some fun and color to your workout.

You can also choose between different styles. Instead of the straight-leg leggings that are tight all the way down to your ankle, you can also get some different styles with slightly flared bottoms that are perfect for the gym or while in a yoga class, like these Grey Flare Bottom Full-Length Yoga Leggings.

It is important that you find the best leggings to suit your style of workout. To stand the test for any workout, you want a pair that will allow you to stretch and move, have breathability and moisture-wicking properties, and be comfortable while you’re doing so. You want them to be durable and to last for many workouts without breaking or becoming see-through after only a handful of workouts. Don't forget that you can also use these leggings as part of your everyday outfit, so why not go for a fun and colorful pair that you can use away from the gym as well?
