Sports leggings are a type of sportswear. Since 2005, sports leggings have become a fitness items. Sports leggings are divided into three categories: five-quarter pants, three-quarter pants and nine-quarter pants. You can choose the right one according to the usage scenarios and preferences.

Sports leggings have become popular fashion items and fitness items. The sports leggings themselves are also very important. There are many leggings fabrics types, and each type of fabric has different characteristics, but leggings fabrics are mainly comfortable and breathable. The following are several kinds of best leggings fabrics.

1. Cotton Fabric

Cotton is a soft and comfortable fabric, and leggings made of cotton are relatively soft. However, the elasticity of cotton is not good, it is easy to deform, easy to wrinkle, and easy to deform.

2. Polyester Fabric

Polyester fabric, like most sportswear fabrics, has the function of absorbing sweat and preventing moisture from entering. It is a hydrophobic fabric. Leggings made of polyester fabric can reduce the inconvenience caused by sweat during exercise. This is also an important reason why polyester fabric has become a popular leggings fabric.


3. Wool Fabric

Wool fabric is warm, if you are in a place where the temperature is very low in winter, wool fabric leggings are a must. Due to the expensive wool material, the price of wool leggings will also be more expensive.

4. Spandex Fabric

Take a close look at the leggings around you, you will find that there are spandex components in the leggings. Spandex is a kind of fabric with good elasticity, which can have a good fit when used on leggings. But the spandex fabric is not good at absorbing sweat.


5. Nylon Fabric

Nylon fabric is also a very popular fabric. Nylon leggings are durable and lighter, but when cleaning nylon leggings, check the washing label on the leggings.

Part 3: Benefits of leggings


Sports leggings are necessary for many people to exercise. What is the reason for the popularity of sports leggings? Let's take a look at the benefits of leggings.


1. Lightweight and comfortable

General leggings use spandex fabric, just like the spandex fabric mentioned in the above fabrics, spandex has better elasticity. Leggings can give athletes a sense of freedom. When athletes are doing up and down exercises like squats, sit-ups, etc., athletes wearing leggings can not worry about the leggings falling off, which can also make the athletes more focused on exercise.

2. It has the role of support and protection

During exercise, such as running, leggings can support the athlete's legs while reducing the shake of the leg muscles.

When designing leggings, leggings manufacturers will consider adding some protective pads to the leggings. Before exercise, athletes will warm up. Warming up can activate the athlete's body muscles, so that the athlete can quickly adapt to the next exercise.

3. Maintain temperature

Before exercising, athletes need to warm up to rejuvenate their body muscles before exercising in order for them to enter the state of exercise immediately. They will not begin immediately after the warm-up exercise. Wearing leggings will compress the muscles of the sportswear to promote blood circulation. The flow of blood can maintain body temperature.

4. Avoid friction on the inner thigh

During the movement, the inner thighs inevitably rub against each other. This is for obese people is normal. If the inner thighs long been friction can cause skin problems. Obese people can try five-point leggings.


5. Conducive to recovery

Do you feel body aches after exercise? Muscles produce lactic acid during exercise. Wearing leggings can promote the blood circulation of the human body and provide oxygen to the muscles of the body, which can reduce muscle soreness after exercise.

6.Beautiful and good-looking

The design of sports leggings can better reflect the curve of a person's legs, improve buttocks support and shape the body. Today, the variety and style of sports leggings is also very rich. Leggings manufacturers in China can make leggings according to the patterns and fabrics provided by customers, providing people with more choices.
