They have evolved to so many different styles too—from black to printed leggings. So if you are not sure where to start, don’t worry, we are here to help. In this article, we have listed some helpful tips on how you can find the “right” one.
6 Tips When Shopping For Printed Leggings
It All Starts In The Waistband
Remember this: the secret is in the waistband. One of the major things that you should look for when picking printed activewear leggings is the quality of the waistband. If you will be wearing them for your yoga or pilates session, look for a pair with an internal elastic at the waist like our Bianca Under Knee leggings. It has a flat and wide non-slip waistband designed to allow you to move freely during all workouts and draw the sweat away!
Your Leggings Must Be Breathable
Avoid fabrics that don’t breathe. If you will be wearing leggings for your regular grind at the gym, it is important to choose a breathable pair. Because after an intense workout, you will be exhausted and probably covered in sweat. Trust me when I say that the clothes you wear can make a difference in how you feel after exercise. This is why you should pick leggings like our Gia High Waisted Under Knee, this is made from fabrics that dry quickly and are anti-bacterial which means they would not leave you with an unpleasant odour. Avoid clothing made out of rubber-based or plastic-based materials unless you want to end up soaked in your sweat!
Choose The Most Comfortable Length
In addition to being comfortable, you should choose leggings that are the right length for your gym workouts, dancing or yoga class, or even for your everyday wear. Leggings nowadays come in various lengths and styles. Brasilfit offers three kinds of leggings that vary in length:
This is the most common length that most of us know and what usually comes to mind when leggings are mentioned. This style often covers the ankle part and can usually be worn for workouts or even on casual occasions. Brasilfit’s Miranda High Waisted Full Length is ideal for women who are yoga practitioners or runners because of its supportive fabric that allows a full range of motion, and of course, gives them the length for full coverage.
This style is usually 7⁄8 printed tights. This is perfect for sunny weather when all you want is for your ankles to breathe and can also make the wearer look taller. This Miranda MId Calf is anti-bacterial, breathable, and quick to dry which makes it comfortable to wear outdoors as much as lounging around the house.
This style is ideal for those who travel a lot but want to wear something comfortable. This can also be worn for gymnastics, yoga, dancing, and even hiking because it can increase airflow to the legs. Miranda High Waisted Under Knee is a comfortable yet sturdy printed activewear leggings designed to support your active lifestyle. It has a gorgeous floral and animal print that looks on point and comes with a supportive fabric to hold you in action.
Do Not Forget To “Bend Over”
The “bend over” test is to ensure full coverage. If you are someone who buys leggings to wear casually or at work, you do not want to catch a glimpse of yourself only to realise that your pants are see-through. It is not a very fun thing! Coverage is essential to a great pair of leggings and goes hand in hand with the quality of the fabric.
The “bend over” is achieved by bending over in front of the mirror to check if the leggings are see-through or not. If you are buying online that option might not be possible, so just look for products that have ventilation at the inseam gusset just like our Alana Under Knee. Because the last thing you want is to put your assets on display when you bend or stretch.
Seek Out Added Features
When buying a pair of printed leggings always look out for functional details like side pockets where you can safely put your essentials. Leggings like our Beatriz Mid Calf comes with pockets on both sides, ideal for storing your keys, cards, or phone. It also has UV 50+ protection that will act as your skin's defence against the sun. If your leggings are for running errands, checking for added features like side pockets and UV protection is a smart thing to do.
Wrapping It Up
Some leggings are ridiculously expensive. Besides the fabric, you must seek out products whose price matches their quality. And most importantly, you must feel comfortable and confident while wearing them. Keep in mind that the best pair of leggings is the one that makes you feel good about yourself.
