If you had it your way, you’d have a new pair of gym leggings for every day of the month, right? There’s just so much temptation out there that it can be impossible to decide what’s worth spending your hard earned cash on.
To try and make things that little bit easier, we’ve put together a quick leggings guide to keep you covered, whatever the occasion.
Of course, we’re not suggesting you shouldn’t stray from this list — our designers do make it pretty impossible to resist a gym kit update every time pay day rolls round — we’re just giving you four solid choices that we think are best suited to four kinds of activities. That way, you can be confident you at least have the important bases covered... and everything else after that is just a bonus.
1. The Leg Day Legends — Power Mesh
A booty-building session automatically means that the bottom half of your gym outfit needs careful consideration. No one’s got time for any sort of wardrobe malfunction at the Smith machine — you need total confidence and coverage during every squat, lunge, and deadlift.
So, first and foremost, our Power Mesh Leggings are completely squat-proof. You can count on that. They’re also tailored to have a super-flattering sculpting seams and a high-rise waist, to give you support in all the right areas.
Plus, they come complete with cooling sheer mesh panels and a large pocket on each leg, perfect for your tech. We don’t know about you, but that ticks all of our boxes.
2. The Fast-Paced Pair — Pro-Tech Air
The last thing you need when you’ve actually got the motivation to go for a run is to have clothing hang-ups holding you back. You need a pair of leggings that’ll give you the freedom to fly through those miles — whether you’re a road, track or treadmill kind of runner.
Created especially for cardio, our super-lightweight Pro-Tech Air Leggings will do just that.
They’re made from light fabric, with shape-enhancing side panels and stay-dry sweat-wicking technology, so you’ll be set from start to finish.
3. The Good All-Rounders — Shape Seamless Ultra
Whether it’s a full-body gym class or quick HIIT session, you need a pair of leggings that can keep up with whatever shapes you’re going to be throwing. For great coverage combined with freedom of movement — it’s got to be Seamless Shape Ultra.
They’re designed to support and sculpt, with a flattering high-waist that will help you tackle anything from burpees to Downward Dog with nothing but confidence. Plus, they’re finished with stay-dry sweat-wicking technology and a laser-cut pattern for improved airflow — perfect for when things start to heat up.
Oh, and they come in gorgeous colours like Copper Rose and Dark Indigo. It’s a yes from us.
4. The Chill Factor — The Original
These are basically #1 for all your non-training needs. Whether you’re just enjoying a day off catching up on Netflix, or need to be in something super-comfy for travelling, The Original Leggings are where it’s at.
Made with soft jersey stretch fabric, they come in classic colours with a simple branded design, and offer a real feel-good fit. They hit the nail on the head when it comes to rest day chillin’ and (not to be dramatic) we can’t imagine life without them.
