It’s a new year, which usually means it’s time for some new resolutions to get healthy and get moving.
Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or new to the gym life, having the proper gear is essential to your workout.
Fitness wear for women often includes cross-trainers, a supportive sports bra and a pair of comfortable, breathable leggings. Unfortunately, the world of athleisure often comes with a hefty price tag, with certain performance leggings running upwards of $100.
Luckily, there are plenty of affordable options that can hold up to your gains without sacrificing style.
The Seasum Women’s High Waist Leggings are Amazon’s bestselling fitness clothing item — and they are back by more than 2,300 positive reviews. These enhancing leggings are strategically designed to highlight and accentuate your derriere, and provide ample lift with enough stretch for maximum comfort.
The textured, moisture-wicking, polyester spandex fabric is thick enough to pass the squat test, however some customers said they wished they offered more compression. Others said they can pull if they get caught on any jewellery. Still, many female shoppers enjoy that Seasum tights mask physical imperfections like cellulite and are available in 34 vibrant colours.
“These are the best leggings I’ve ever bought,” one shopper wrote of her Seasum leggings. “The waistband does not cause muffin top...These pants make me feel supported and holy bum! My husband rarely compliments me on new clothes...but he complimented me on these pants six times in one day.”
Some customers have warned shoppers to size up to ensure fit, noting that, unlike other high-waisted tights, these won’t provide as much tummy control.
“They fit quite nicely. I like the texture to them, a lot of people comment or want to feel the leggings. The only thing I don’t like is the material,” one shopper observed. “These would be excellent if they were made in a different material. Also if you’re on the larger side these wouldn’t suck you in as much as you may hope, but if you’re smaller the amount of compression should be enough.”
Still, it could all come down to personal preference.
“I love these leggings!” a satisfied customer wrote. “They hug me in all the right places. Good quality as well. I’ve had them for about two weeks at this point constantly washing and wearing and they’ve stayed perfectly intact!”
