Three Things to Consider Before Buying New Leggings

Few things are more comfortable than women’s leggings, as long as you find a style and fit that’s right for you.

With the rise in popularity of yoga, Pilates, and similar exercise trends of the last decade, leggings have taken their place as a nearly universal staple of women’s apparel. Appropriate for almost any occasion, they have a place in all seasons and can be worn with practically every look or style. Let’s take a quick peek at the top three reasons why leggings have become the women’s fashion hit that is here to stay.

Whether at the gym, around the house, or on the town, the hallmark of any pair of leggings is a soft, stretchy fabric. This usually means blends of between 8 and 12 percent Spandex with either a nylon or polyester weave. The stretch fit makes leggings perfect for activities as calm as meditation or as active as jogging—and anything in between.
