Gyms are reopening soon, so why not treat yourself to new leggings? Here are some of the best around

Best leggings

Gyms are reopening on 12 April, so it's a good time to revamp your wardrobe.

Gyms are expected to soon reopen in England as part of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown.

If the easing of restrictions is successful then indoor exercise will be able to take place from 12 April.

This means that we’ll all be able to be “up in the gym, just working on our fitness”, just like Fergie would want.

You might be somebody who’s been itching to get back to the gym throughout lockdown, or someone who has been waiting to sign up once things start to go back to normal.

Whatever the case, it might also be time to refresh your workout wardrobe, including leggings and tights.

While exercising it’s important to be comfortable in what you’re wearing and also be able to move easily during different workout routines.

We’ve put together a list of some ideal leggings and tights that are ideal for every body below.

These new innovative leggings are from brand Modibodi. They’re designed for comfort and protection from periods, bladder leakage and discharge during workouts thanks to the super-absorbent, stain, odour and bacteria-resistant lining.

Plus they’re also a win for the environment because they eliminate the need for disposable sanitary items and are crafted from 78 per cent recycled material. They’re priced at £55 and come in sizes eight to 18 from the Modibodi website.
