Leggings are the all-purpose bottoms that go with everything and remain comfortable all day long. Our range of women’s leggings include a selection of tights, trousers and gym leggings in neutral colours like black and white as well as funky prints and designs. They are available in various fabrics suitable for everyday use that are made of cotton and are soft-to-touch, as well as our purpose made gym tights which offer full freedom of movement and are great for working out in.
What is the difference between tights and leggings?
As general rule, leggings and tights are pretty much the same thing. Some people refer to tights when they’re talking about stockings. Tights in this sense aren’t practical for wearing on their own, however, leggings are generally made of fabrics like stretch cotton and lycra which make them robust enough to wear on their own with t-shirts & tops. The two words are interchangeable; it just comes down to the activity/use of them.
The history of leggings goes back much further than most people think. They were believed to have been created in Scotland about seven hundred years ago and were made for men primarily to wear under other trousers or clothes. They were then made from two separate pant legs and fastened to the rest of their undergarments with string ties. The leggings we would most likely recognise nowadays, however, were created in the late 1950’s and originally paired with garments like miniskirts or made specifically for the purpose of working out and other sports activities. They were lightweight, flexible and very comfortable. Since then, the designs and fabrics have only gotten better and better.
The Best&Less range of leggings include black workout tights from our activewear and fitness range which can be teamed with our sweat absorbent and loose-fitting gym tees & tanks - the perfect workout outfit. Choose from cropped leggings in core colours like white, grey and black or choose from our range of fun printed leggings including camo leggings in full length and plus size.

Athleisure has never been so popular as it has today. Who doesn’t want to be free, feel comfortable and look cool all day long? So even if the gym isn’t for you, there are still plenty of reasons to pick up a pair of women’s leggings. Wear them while running errands, shopping, catching up with friends or just sitting on the couch. For an on-trend streetwear look, pair your leggings with an oversized tee, sweatshirt or hoodie and finish off with some trainers. Looking good
