When finding the right fit for your leggings, it is important to find the size, fabric and most of all the fit for your body. This makes all of the difference between having a pair of leggings ride up or digging into your waist.

Leggings Styles

Compression Leggings

Compression leggings are great for intense activities like running, kickboxing, or just being the bad-a** woman that you are. It is said that they improve sporting performance, and reduce muscle recovery time. Keep in mind that these leggings are a tighter fit than the usual leggings.


Athleisure Leggings

Fitted leggings have light compression and usually with wide, flat waistband. This is perfect for yoga or everyday wear. While basic black is a staple, we love adding prints to our leggings for everyday.

Leggings Size and Fit

Leggings should feel like second-skin on your body. It should be snug across the buttocks, thighs, and calves. The waistband should not be too tight so that it can create the dreaded “muffin top” or should be too loose where you have to keep pulling them up every five minutes. If the fabric looks distorted or becomes sheer when worn, they might be too small. You should always prioritize fit and comfort over the size (aka the number on the tag).

Leggings Size Chart

You can determine your leggings size from the waist, hip, and inseam measurements. But since leggings are supposed to fit tightly, we recommend taking your weight and body height measurements into accounts. While each leggings brand has varied sizes, here is our measurement chart that you can use as a reference. You can also learn more about measurement charts here.
