Shopping online is confusing. We get it. Two styles look the same, but when you get them in the mail they feel totally different. URGH!
Almost all athletic material these days is made out of the same stuff; Nylon, Spandex, Polyester, etc. But, why does it say online that its fabric content is the same when it looks, feels, and fits differently? (seriously, wtf?) Well, we’re here to educate you on that!
So, whether you're a hot yogi, or not, like super thick leggings or prefer super lighweight, whether you are highly active or just like to chill, you can still get the perfect legging when you know what to look for..
Now, not to get too techie on you, we’ve quickly outlined the basics. Don’t lose us here, we promise, it’s brief!
- Nylon, spandex and polyester are all fibers that get weaved or knitted together to create the fabric. The method of which these fabrics are constructed contributes to how it will feel in the end.
- Additionally, fabric can be made into different weights. That’s why you can have a light and breezy tank top and thick yoga pants with the same fabric content.. Think about braiding your hair… you can have a loose fishtail braid or a extremely tight french braid. Same hair, different look and texture.
- And lastly, just as fabric can be constructed in different ways, it can also be finished in different ways - making yet another way fabric SEEMS the same on paper, but is WAY different in real life.
