You can achieve both with carefully designed high waisted workout leggings. High waisted leggings UK – it’s not uncommon to hear of over here. But why are they so popular?

Low rise was a booming trend back in the noughties, and we can’t deny that the Y2K fashion era is making somewhat of a comeback. At the same time, this is not a trend that is spreading into the gym industry and there is a reason. Although the youth of today are pulling off amazing looks with low-rise cargos on the daily, in the gym the call for high rise leggings is as strong as ever. To look good whilst working out, you want to be sculpted and supported, as we’ve mentioned. So, high waisted leggings are the only way to go.

So, whilst they are flattering and supportive, they are on-trend too.
