Finding Your Ideal Pants
Workout pants for women come in a dizzying array of lengths, cuts and colors. How do you pick the right ones for you? Take a look at your exercise schedule. Are you running outdoors? Inside on a yoga mat? Don't underestimate environmental factors when choosing. Women's fitness pants come in fleece lined versions for cold weather and tights and leggings for inside work. Luxurious new materials like cashmere take comfort to an unheard of level, and the popular jogger shape is wearable not only for exercise but for a night out, tucked in to boots or with flats. Cyclists don't want flared yoga pants, and skiers need water repellent styles. What's key in finding your best pants is fit. Too tight pants constrict movement, while too loose have you constantly adjusting them. You want a smooth line that accentuates your curves. Many women like compression while exercising, which creates a jiggle-free silhouette. A selection of maternity bottoms works to accommodate expanding waists and sizes from from XS to XL ensure you'll find the right fit.
Fabrics and Performance
Women's athletic pants offer so many benefits during a workout. Today's fabrics offer breathable comfort with soft, stretchable strength that never restricts your movement. Designed to wick perspiration, these bottoms stay dry no matter what you do. With new treatments to remove spandex shine, increase softness, and even provide UV protection, pants have never been so useful or good looking. Whatever a woman's body type, the explosion of new pants styles for workouts means there's a flattering pair just waiting for her. The rise of exercise tights includes offshoots like the jegging, the jogger and pant styles with flared bottoms, skinny legs, and slouch styles. There are even exercise trousers now, featuring straight, wider legs. Moto pants, Ponte pants, and new tights that promise to lift what gravity's dropped are all in ascendance.
The sheer variety of styles has introduced a new fashion savvy aesthetic in gyms and allows women to find the best pants for their figure, whether pear shaped, curvy, tomboy straight or just right. The profusion of fabrics boast an array of benefits and it can be hard to decide. The best advice is to try on a variety of pairs to see which flatter and provide freedom of movement. Remember, you're going to be active in these. Where shorts once ruled, pants are now in charge, seen in yoga studios, out cycling and competing in 10Ks. Machine washable and able to go in the dryer, performance pants require no special care, making them a winning choice.
