I know many women that are of the firm belief that leggings or capris are not for them. I understand why they would think that. In former years, active ladies had to settle for whatever wear they could find. And most of the time the leggings on offer were thin, ill-made and horribly designed. They left almost nothing to the imagination and were incredibly uncomfortable. The fabric used in those days showed up every lump and bump you had, as well as every embarrassing sweat patch. These days though, ladies are now spoilt for choice and leggings are made with every body type and shape in mind. The design, colors and technical fabrics that go into making leggings these days are amazing. You have breathable spandex, climate-sensitive wear for outdoor sports and leggings or capris that you can even wear without underwear.
