Okay, let’s be real, there is so much activewear out there these days but it’s important to know what to look for when you’re buying a new pair of leggings…especially if you want to buy a pair for PERFECT leggings. Isn’t it the WORST when you find a cute pair of leggings, but when you wear them to work out for the first time, they fall down, chafe or are completely see through?! Nope, we’re not a fan!
All Fenix takes the leggings game very seriously, so we wanted to share our top 5 things to look for in the perfect leggings.
FOUR WAY STRETCH
This is so important in a pair of leggings. It means that the fabric stretches in both directions, crosswise and lengthwise so that you are able to move freely during your workout without any restriction. Four way stretch is especially important when your practicing yoga or any movement involving flexibility. We want leggings that will help us improve our flexibility, not restrict it!
HIGH RISE WAISTBAND
You want to look and feel your best when working out, right? So, the last thing you want to be doing is pulling up your leggings every 10 seconds. A higher waistband not only won’t fall down, but it provides more support, sucks you in in all the right places, accentuates your legs and will stay put no matter the workout intensity.
Our new core style, the Madison Core legging has no elastic at the top of the waistband so you can wear it high waisted during your workout but also fold it over if you want a little more freedom throughout the day.
Moisture wicking fabrics are able to retract moisture from your skin. Your sweat is brought to the surface of the fabric, making evaporation easier. This is essential when it comes to leggings, because it means you’ll stay drier during your workout and can head from the studio to street without changing!
In our opinion, the more minimal, the more flattering the legging. So, it’s always best to look for leggings with solid color fabrics coupled with linear details. All Fenix offers a variety of styles that combine minimalistic design with a touch of flattering detail! One of our favorites is the Taylor Legging in Navy and Gold.
FLAT LOCK STITCHING
Flat lock stitching means more comfort and more durability. You don’t want your leggings to feel itchy, ause chafing or feel uncomfortable. All of our leggings on allfenix.com are made with flat lock stitching for functionality and endurability!
At All Fenix, we mean business when we’re talking about leggings. It’s important to feel good in your activewear and trust that it’ll do the job. So, when you’re shopping for the next pair of leggings to get you through a workout (or even wear to the grocery store, whatever your preference), keep these qualities in mind.
