The Right Legging for Your Workout
Thank you to CRZ Yoga for providing the activewear for this post. All opinions are my own including that you must get yourself a pair of their buttery soft leggings, no matter which style you prefer. Find them on Amazon and don’t forget to give them a follow on Instagram for all the newest styles.
I know this sounds like a no brainer but you’d be surprised by the different kind of leggings there are out there. You have spandex or cotton, thin or thick, compression or not. Choosing the right type of leggings can make or break your workout (no one wants a saggy bum 15 minutes into her run).
First of all, let me explain the main types of leggings. There are lounge pants: mainly cotton or very light cotton blend materials. You can use these to workout but be prepared for a little slippage or peep show. Mostly cotton leggings will stretch (it’s what cotton does) and you will spend your entire workout pulling them back up your thighs or waist. Thin cotton blends may stay up for your workout but they will likely not give adequate coverage (think underwear lines or even the dreaded cameltoe).
End story: Cotton is good for lounge bad for the gym. Stretchy leggings generally come in two varieties: light coverage or compressive. They are both good for working out, however, each one is more suited for different activities. Read on to find out which is right for your workout.
