Life is full of complicated decisions, and choosing workout leggings – and workout clothes in general – is no exception. As you may already know, we have a wide range of tights and leggings with varying designs and features. And we realise that our wide range of clothes doesn't make the choice any easier for our customers.
Prompted by this, we decided to create a comprehensive guide on how to choose the right bottoms for your workouts. With a few simple tricks and an idea of what you expect from your tights or pants, the decision will be much easier to make.
Choose Based on Intended Activities
The first thing you need to consider is what you’re planning to use your workout leggings for. Different types of exercises pose different demands on your clothes, for example, a pair of yoga pants may not be suitable for running and vice versa.
Generally speaking, the most important thing is that your leggings follow your body in a natural way and that they do not restrict your movements but rather facilitate them. This way, you can push yourself even further during each workout.
Many people also use our workout leggings for snuggle sessions at home. If you are one of these people, you should choose your tights based entirely on how comfortable they are to wear, just as you would when buying any other piece relaxed clothing.
Consider the Fit and Model
Naturally, your taste also plays a key role in the decision. As with all types of clothing, you want to buy workout clothes that represent your style and enhance your personality. Some people prefer simple colours such as black, brown and beige, while others love to dress in bright colours. Furthermore, there are both long and short leggings (biker shorts).
We have developed several different collections and they are all unique in their design. That's why we suggest you spend some time looking through our range to see which models you like best. In addition, we share our customers' own photos from Instagram so you can see how all the garments fit when worn "in real life".
Choice of Material – Seamless or Not?
Finally, you also need to review the material the leggings are made of. If you’re used to intense workouts and know that you sweat a lot, you should buy leggings in a material that dries quickly. If you want a comfortable pair of tights, we can also recommend a seamless version. This is because seamless garments are created without seams, which reduces the risk of chafing and pressure points. Also, seamless is a more sustainable option than traditional clothing as less material is used in the manufacturing process.
Here at Relode.se, you can find a large number of seamless training tights, but we also offer tights that are not seamless. Nowadays, we also have training tights in a ribbed fabric for increased comfort and more prominent features.
Bonus tip: Do You Need Squat Proof Pants?
We would also like to highlight so-called squat-proof leggings, i.e. workout leggings that are not see-through. This means that you don't have to show your panties to the whole gym regardless of how deep you squat.
For this simple reason, we only offer squat-proof tights!
