GETTING THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOUR LEGGINGS
When looking to buy leggings for the gym, make sure you're getting a proper fit. A well-fitting pair of gym leggings are a girl's best friend. But it's easy to get it wrong, so let's take a look at some tips to help you find a pair of gym leggings that fit you like a glove.
Your gym leggings should feel like a second skin when worn. They should provide a snug feeling around your bum, calves, and thighs without being so tight that they feel restrictive. Having to do a little wiggle to get them on is quite normal but having to struggle is not.
LEGGINGS THAT ARE TO SMALL…..
MUFFIN TOP - If your leggings are too tight at the waist they will cause what we call a ‘muffin top’ and dig in. I should point out that most people wearing leggings that are too tight around the waist will have this problem, regardless of their size. If not, then definitely a stomach ache! In this case you will need to size up.
SLIPPING DOWN - A pair of gym leggings that slip down and need pulling up all the time may actually be too small for you, so consider going up a size or two to prevent this.
SEE-THROUGH - Gym leggings are not supposed to be see-through. Squat-proof leggings will only become sheer if the material is overstretched and too tight. To keep your gym leggings in top condition and squat-proof, size up to prevent the elasticity being broken down by overstretching.
LEGGINGS THAT ARE TOO BIG…..
BAGGY CROTCH - If you're finding that the crotch of your gym legging is too loose/you have to continually adjust your clothing, it may be a sign to move down a size. Nobody wants chaffing - especially here!
LOOSE KNEES - If your gym leggings are fitting through the waist, hips and thighs but are loose at the knees you will need to go down a size as workout fabric for leggings should be form fitting to your figure.
FALLING DOWN - If you gym leggings are ending up at your knees when you jump up and down in your HIIT class then this is a definite sign that you have the wrong size.
