My leggings fall down!

charlesV9Kw7463charlesV9Kw7463 Posts: 14Member Member Posts: 14Member Member
I've been rekindling my love of Spin recently, but one thing that is doing my head in is that my work out leggings just keep falling down. Every 5 mins I'm having to yank them up and it's getting in the way of my work out.

Admittedly- I'm a big girl, with a fairly sizeable *kitten*! And the love handles probably don't help the leggings falling down issue. (I'm working hard on reducing both!!)

Has anyone out there had the same problem? I've been looking at Lululemon high waisted ones, but aren't too keen on shelling out £100. But I would if anyone has had luck with them before?

Thanks!

    I have this same problem when I run. I'm thinking... suspenders? onesie? LOL no. I would say if Lululemon has high-waisted leggings out now, Target & sports stores will have them out at half the price in 6 months. Interested in reading responses, because I need help now too.

    I'm a big-butt girl who used to have the same problem, and I personally think the high waisted lulu's are worth every penny. Just make sure you get the correct size so they're not see through....I've seen way too many girls at the gym in transparent tights haha

    I have a fat/big butt as well and I put the old Navy high waisted compression leggings and they are awesome and really affordable.

    I always buy the ones with the string so I can keep the waist tight. My butt isnt as big of an issue as my legs so I avoid the tight leggings and go for Capri

    I recently purchased these and really like them They don't roll or fall down on me while running or bending or anything. And they are $30.

    Get new ones. The ones you have are slipping down because they don't fit you right. I have a bunch of leggings and running tights from Lululemon, and none of them slip. If you're thinking of the high waisted wunder unders, don't get them to spin in; you'll be too hot.

    Always choose the "high-waisted compression" option! I have the old navy ones for the exact same reason, and they are serving me well. They also keep my stomach from jiggling painfully...

    What about cycling bibs? The straps would help keep from sliding down, and they'd provide a pad.

    unfortunately, I learned you'll have to pay for good work out pants. I tried to use some from old navy or target but found that they are done after one wash.
    I use saucony leggings and they are amazing. they cost more but last forever and they have tons of different styles. I also can find some at tjmaxx and other spots like that that seems to work well.

    Pretty much all I wear for leggings is Lulu and Ivivva as they are the only brand that will stay put. I like lulu speed pants because you can tie them at the top and any of their jacquard pants since they are super compressive (I usually size down in these)

    I swear by my under armour leggings for this exact reason. They're definitely not cheap, but you can hit deals in their outlet section of their site online. They last long with frequent washes and I love the bright colors they offer :smile:

    I have the same problem with a few pairs of mine as well. I find it's trial and error really. I've bought some capri style ones at Costco that are very snug & really stay put. I love them!.... I've also gotten Adidas full length at Winners & they're really comfortable as well.

    The 3 dollar ones at Walmart are really high wasted and cheap. They stay on very well.

    I love lulu lemon and swear by them. They stay put that's for sure

    If you are doing Spinning classes, you might want to look into getting a decent pair of cycling shorts, with a bit of the padding ... helps to make those saddles a little more comfortable, and they stay put.

    Idk. I'm always pulling up my high waisted wundr unders from lulu. Don't get me wrong, I love them, and I wear them everywhere, just not the gym. (And there's no way I could size down) For working out I love my Nike pro shorts, but I heard somewhere that they're stopping making the Nike pros. :o That would be my suggestion. Find some Nike pros before they're gone!
