We’ve talked a lot about activewear and athleisure, but let’s zoom in on two of our favourite workout wear: high-waist leggings and track pants. You see them sported by influencers and almost every other girl at the gym or even at the coffee shop. You might already even have a pair or two. So, what’s so special about them, and what are the benefits of wearing them?
What Are High-Waist Leggings?
You probably are not wondering this but just to make sure we are on the same page, high-waist leggings are exactly what they sound like — they’re leggings that sit between under the bust and the waist. They’re great for both high-intensity workouts and lazy days of just lounging around.
What Are the Benefits of Wearing High-Waist Leggings?
High-waist leggings are likely to stay put
Unlike their low and mid-rise counterparts, high-waist leggings are more likely to stay put. Say goodbye to days when you worry about the discomfort and the embarrassment of endlessly pulling them up. Plus, since they stay nicely put, you can pair them with sports bras and crop gym tops.
Check out the combo of the deep coral SEAMLESS Leggings and the SEAMLESS Sports Bra. We can’t get enough of how gorgeous it looks! Plus, these high-waist activewear leggings feature a ribbed compressive waistband and breathable, sweat-wicking fabric. We love the fact that it has a high-waist fit for maximum support and tummy control. Plus, it’s form-fitting and squat-proof!
High-waist leggings are fashionable and give that slimming effect
Whether we admit it or not, looking fashionable when working out or lounging around really helps with our confidence. So many high-waist activewear leggings are fashionable these days, and that’s great! After all, a great outfit easily motivates us during our workout.
Not only are high-waist leggings fashionable, but they give that slimming effect too. These leggings hug the body to provide support, and the high waistline lets the material tuck in any fat found in the lower belly or the lower back. They smoothen your curves and give a flattering silhouette.
Just look at how the KG LUXE Bottoms in black give that gorgeous shape. They’re also durable, comfortable, and luxurious, making them perfect for a workout at the gym or a chill brunch date.
High-waist leggings give support
If you work out a lot, support should be one of the things you look for in your activewear. High-waist activewear leggings support your body in all the right places. They securely hug your waist, calves, glutes, and quads.
What Are Track Pants?
Track pants are essentially a pair of soft and smooth trousers that are meant for athletic purposes. They’re similar to joggers, but they’re usually made from materials like polyester — smooth, comfortable, and wrinkle-free.
What Are the Benefits of Wearing Track Pants?
Track pants make it easier to burn calories
Track pants increase body temperature during workouts. This means that the body works harder, exerts more energy, and therefore, burns more calories.
While track pants increase body temperature during a workout, they can lower it from a resting state. Therefore, track pants also regulate body temperature.
Track pants combine fashion and comfort
This is one of the many things that we love about athleisure — it’s both fashionable and comfortable. This is especially true with track pants. In fact, they look and feel so good that people even wear them on casual days.
Luxe tracksuits like the LUXE Tracksuit Pants are a perfect example of fashion meeting comfort. They have a relaxed fit for maximum comfort, and they also have elasticated cuffs and waist.
Track pants improve mobility
When you have an active lifestyle, you definitely do a lot of stretches and exercises. What’s great about tracksuits is they improve mobility as you do these strenuous activities. They prevent stiffness, and they keep you comfortable too.
Just check out the KG22 Tracksuit Pants. With just one look, you already know that they’ll help you get the most out of your workouts!
High-waist leggings and track pants have their own features and benefits, but one thing is for sure: We love them both. Try out your own pairs of high-waist activewear leggings and track pants and see for yourself!
