What is the best material for gym leggings?
There are different materials used for gym leggings, but not all have the same attributes. So there are a few factors to consider when choosing the best material for gym leggings. While comfort, breathability, and durability are all important, the right material will ultimately depend on the specific type of exercise you’re doing:
Cardio or HIIT — Your workout leggings should be breathable and moisture-wicking. The combination of 87% Nylon and 13% Spandex in our Signature Scrunch Fabric makes this range stretchy and quick-drying.
Lifting weights — You’ll need something more supportive that won’t limit your range of motion. The mix of 75% Nylon and 25% Lycra in our Superior Squat line provides a comfortable, snug fit throughout every rep.
Yoga and Pilates — Buttery-soft, lightweight leggings are the best options for this style of training. Made from 75% Polyester and 25% Spandex, our V1 Butter Fabric allows maximum flexibility while contouring the body in all the right places.
What do you wear under gym leggings?
Go for it if you feel more comfortable wearing underwear beneath your gym leggings. But if you don’t mind going commando, that’s fine too. Both options have pros and cons: wearing underwear can help keep things tidy and prevent unwanted exposure, while going without can reduce chafing and increase air circulation. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what feels best. Go ahead and rock those gym tights — with or without underwear — and be confident knowing you're making the best choice.
What should I look for in gym leggings?
When it comes to working out, comfort is key. You want to be able to focus on your breath and your form, not on readjusting your gym tights every 30 seconds. When trying on leggings, focus on their support and the way they fit. You’ll want something tight but not too constricting. Make sure they fit well around the waist and hips, so they don’t slip down as you move. Look for flat seams to avoid chafing.
Aside from the fit, finding the right workout leggings largely depends how you work out. If you often train outdoors — for example, on a run or a hike — you’ll benefit from its convenient compartments to stash your phone or keys. However, those same pockets might be a total nuisance if you're practising yoga in a studio.
Can I wear gym leggings casually?
Absolutely! Leggings have come a long way since their humble beginnings as sportswear. While once confined to the gym or the yoga studio, they are now a staple in our loungewear wardrobes. Whether you’re running errands or catching up over brunch, their comfortable fit and versatile look make it a reliable choice. Our Zero Rise Rib Leggings are designed with rest days in mind. It looks great paired with chunky sneakers and oversized sweats.
What are squat-proof leggings?
Not all leggings are engineered for intense workouts — which can result in an embarrassing see-through situation as you lift your way around the weights room! That’s where squat-proof ones come in. Crafted with pioneering Motion Fabric Technology, our Superior Squat range is made from thick, supportive, shape-retaining fabric and features an inner construction block-out panel and high, secure waistband to preserve your dignity throughout your entire range of motion. The result? Workout leggings that leave you free to focus on what matters: your training.
What size gym leggings should I buy?
The fit is the most important factor across the board when it comes to finding the perfect pair of gym tights. Whether you're a yoga bunny or a dedicated Crossfitter, look for one with a wide waistband — this will help keep everything in place while you're moving around. When it comes to the overall fit, your leggings should always be snug but not so tight that they restrict your movement or cause any discomfort. The best way to determine the right size is to take measurements and consult our size chart.
