Fitness tights or leggings are made for both women and men. For women they are sold as both high waisted and natural waisted tights. Because of their snug fit, they do wonders in supporting the leg and stimulating blood flow through them. They often serve as compression legwear, but with less control.
Some fitness legwear is made with tummy control panels to give the new mother or older woman that trim look while in the gym or on daily errands. Fitness legwear is now a part of daily outwear and is worn along with a casual t-shirt, sweatshirt, or tunic.
Today’s fitness legwear is very stylish. They are color blocked, made with foot stirrups, made with color prints and solids, and made with embroidery emblems. The fashion statement is variable with legwear, but it does always keep up with the latest looks.
