Why Women Love to Wear Leggings

Posted by Darlene Gross on

This is a question that a lot of men tend to have for women often enough.  In the past couple of years, leggings have been the pant choice for women of various ages and sizes.  You see them at all of the best clothing stores, and they are a common topic of conversation for women everywhere.  So, you may be wondering what the big deal is about leggings...well, you aren't alone, and we're here to give you the scoop.  There are all sorts of reasons that women can give you, but this tends to be a good list that includes many of the biggest reasons why women love to wear leggings.

 They are comfortable

            This is reason number one as to why women love leggings so much.  They are easy to put on, and comfortable to wear around all day.  There is no chafing, no fixing up required, and they move with you as you go about your day.  When women come home from work, the first thing they want to do is take off their pants.  However, women don't have that same impulse with leggings because they're comfortable and relaxing.  They feel like wearing sweatpants, but they look great in any atmosphere you go into.  Great!

 Not as restrictive as skinny jeans

            Many women love the look and feel of skinny jeans, but actually hate wearing them.  They tend to be difficult to get on, and you often have to readjust them as the day goes on.  They can be hard to find as far as length and fit goes, and they are expensive.  So, leggings make a great alternative.  They are easy yo wear and comfortable.  Plus, you can now get “jeggings”, which look like jeans but fit and feel like leggings.  This presents another great option for women who want to look great, but feel stuffed inside of traditional skinny jeans.

 More forgiving

            If you are over a size four, regular pants and skinny jeans tend to never fit quite right.  It is because the clothing industry tends to be made for those rare women who are a size two.  For those real women, leggings tend to be a good clothing choice because they are formfitting and look good on a lot of women of various shapes and sizes.  Additionally, if you are having an off day where you feel bloated or gross, leggings are more forgiving.  They help shape your legs nicely and make you feel like the beautiful woman that you are, even if you are bigger than the model in the store.

 They are warm

            As the colder temperatures set in, leggings become the preferred choice because they are warm and all things cozy.  As the market demands come in, more and more companies are turning to fleece lined leggings, which are fantastic creations that act like thermal underwear, but still make you look good.  Lining those under a sweater dress is comfortable and a good way to feel warm without losing your fashion sense.  You can get them in various kinds of patterns and colours, so you don't have suffer on the fashion end for warmth.  It's a nice change for women to see in stores.

 They are trendy

            For a variety of reasons that we are learning about, leggings are really trendy in young adults and adults, too.  They are comfortable, sweet, warm, etc, and they are widely available at a variety of prices to make sure that everyone can enjoy a pair.  From activewear to general everyday wearing, leggings are one of the most popular items that will be sold in a store that sells them, making them a great purchase.  You see them in Hollywood, on the catwalk, and all over the TV shows that plaster our Netflix watching.  They are “the” thing, and looks like this will continue on for quite a while.

 They are affordable

            As mentioned in passing, leggings are affordable for anyone who can spend as little as $5.  They are available at many shops that offer cheap clothing so that everyone can get a chance to enjoy their wonderful fit, comfort, and fashion style.  Whether kids, teens, or adults are looking for them, a pair of leggings can be afforded on any budget, no matter what you're looking for.  This means it is often smarter to shop for leggings, where you can pend $50 on 10 or so pairs of leggings instead of the same amount on one pair of jeans.

There are various kinds of patterns and materials to choose from

            There is a lot of variety when looking at the leggings that are available now.  This is partially because they are so cheap and trendy, but also because women love to have as much variety as possible when looking at prints.  While basic black tends to be a favourite for women everywhere, there are some who prefer the look of bright colours and fun patterns that make great workout wear trends.  It's fun and a good way to feel young and cheerful.

 They're “easy”

            Going back to the first point we made, wearing leggings is easy.  They're trendy, comfortable, forgiving, cheap, and look great in all situations, including professional ones.  They're the best choice when you want to combine style and fashion into one outfit.  They are fantastic pants options that cover all your needs, be them the gym, home, work, or everything in between.   This makes them a great, easy choice for women everywhere.

             While men still may be confused as to the reasons why women love to wear leggings, you women who are reading this post are nodding and smiling at all of the reasons that we've listed here.  This is because we, women, understand the importance of comfort and style that we look for in one piece of clothing.
