The activewear market has exploded in recent years and nowhere will you find more choice than in activewear bottoms. Leggings are extremely popular in activewear and there are styles to suit every activity. They're also the most versatile, taking you through at least 3 seasons and, depending on style, from workout through the erst of your day. Some activewear leggings are meant as layering pieces, wicking moisture and adding a lightweight layer of warmth. Thermal leggings and pantyhose are great as long underwear, too. Some styles are extra stretchy and body hugging, without constraining mobility. There are even popular new styles known as 'begging,s' which have all of the activewear properties of leggings with the styling of jeans.
