We want to sell leggings purely on the merits of the products rather than utilising an easily influenced following. So many athleisure brands promote the idea that their range will help you look like a particular model rather than helping you to look the best possible version of yourself. Our goal is to make all women feel confident in and out of the gym.
Our leggings are made from a combination of nylon and spandex. This combination can stretch 4-7 times its original length and return to its natural shape1.
Nylon's molecular chains are long and straight with no side chains or cross linkages. When used in clothing this provides the high elongation and elastic recovery properties. Also, allows for abrasion resistance and high dimensional stability allowing the leggings to stretch in many directions and return to their original shape.
Textured nylon threads are also used in the stitching for added softness and elasticity. High stitch density is used to avoid any weaknesses2.
Spandex is able to stretch and recover to its original shape which helps to keep the leggings up when exercising. It is also breathable, wicks sweat and dries rapidly.
A study found that leggings with the combination of nylon and spandex retained its strength and opacity after 20 washes3.
