Womens gym leggings
Which leggings you should buy depends on your goals and current needs and training style. When it comes to gym leggings there is lots of choices. Some leggings focus on performance and others just focus on appearance and style. The SHAPE leggings come in five trendy colors - black, blue, grey, wine, pine and are one of our most popular leggings for superior comfort and performance. We have tested this luxury fabric for three years before we found a perfect fabric mix. It is super soft to the touch and feels great while you wear it.
They are extra high waisted so you can wear them with just a sports bra or crop top if you like. They are made with sweat-wicking fabrics so that the harder you work at the gym, the more they perform.
These leggings are best for gym workouts and the design is simple and minimalistic enough to be worn as everyday leggings. They are also perfect for low impact exercises like walking or yoga.

High waisted leggings
We all love a good pair of high waisted sports leggings. They flatter your figure and skim our curves where it matters. High waisted leggings are also perfectly paired with a stylish sports bra or crop top for an effortless style which can translate to casual everyday wear as well as gym attire. Make sure the leggings come as high as you want without being too high so as to restrict your movement.

What To Look For In Yoga Leggings:
- Comfortable Fit
- Pant lengths
Comfortable Fit: The fit you choose depends on personal preference. Wear something that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
Stretch: Look for leggings that are made with stretch fabrics. Stretch fabrics can either have 2-way or 4-way stretch. 2-way stretch can stretch in one direction whereas 4-way stretch can stretch horizontally and vertically. A stretchy fabric will give you a great range of movement. All of our leggings are made with 4-way stretch.
Compression: Compression clothing has a tight fit that reduces muscle pain, speeds up recovery time, and can possibly reduce injuries. The clothing works by applying pressure on your blood vessels via the tight fit to improve circulation.
Waist: You'll find low-rise, mid-waist, and high-waist as options. Mid and high-waisted pants will compliment curves and provide a flattering silhouette. A low-rise fit has a waistband that's up to two inches below the navel and is sometimes preferred by petite body types. All three options come in fashionable styles and provide varying amounts of coverage.
Pant lengths: The main yoga legging lengths are full-length shorts. Shorts are great options for warm days or hot yoga classes. Full-length pants can be used as everyday leggings too.
Design: Style! Women that crave a fashionable twist can find countless colors, prints, and trendy features like prints, pleated details or a classic legging with cool details.
With your newfound knowledge, you'll be able to find the perfect leggings for your needs.
