Posted on September 27 2019
What woman doesn’t appreciate a good pair of leggings? It’s meant to accentuate your shape and provide support while being super comfortable. Most women live in leggings because it’s such a versatile wardrobe staple.
If you’re guilty of wearing leggings almost every day, then you know the pain of having to buy them regularly when they wear out.
Leggings are designed to last the distance; with a few easy steps, yours too can last many months.
Here are some tips on making your seamless leggings last longer by our experts:
Wash your leggings as soon as you’re done with them
Whether you wear leggings for a walk, run, yoga, or just in your day to day life, they need to be washed immediately. Whether you’ve worked up a sweat because it’s been a warm day or not, body odor lingers in clothing, especially since leggings fit snugly. Get rid of any bacteria by washing your leggings as soon as you’re done with them.
Don’t leave damp leggings around
Leggings are great to do light exercises in like a 20-minute stretching session with a yoga strap or even a restorative yoga session. Even though these classes are quite easy on the body, you do work up a bit of sweat. Once you change after your yoga class, don’t let your damp leggings linger around in your bag, wash them as soon as you come home.
Leaving your damp leggings around encourages bacteria to fester. As a result, mold and mildew can begin to grow on your clothes, which can cause a host of diseases.
Keep a separate laundry basket for athleisure
Athleisure wear is made of a unique fabric that’s unlike the rest of your wardrobe. Have a separate basket for your athletic wear so that you can be careful when washing them. Athletic wear like ours is made of lightweight fabric and the latest technology, resulting in our 360 stretch and seamless finish.
Since athletic wear fits closer to the skin in comparison to other pieces in our wardrobe, they’re more likely to have bacteria and body odor. Don’t let these pieces mix up with the rest of your wardrobe—the bacteria will only spread.
Your other clothing pieces may have accents on them that can damage your leggings as well. Denim zips can rip leggings and cause ladders.
Use a gentle setting to wash them
Leggings are made of thinner fabric when compared to other bottoms than you wear. Therefore, it needs to be washed on a gentle setting as well. Always wash your leggings inside out to prevent any damage to the fibers.
