How To Choose A Legging Length

Getting the right legging length is essential because it can significantly impact your performance during physical activities. The right leggings should be made of breathable, moisture-wicking material to keep you cool and comfortable. Here are some tips by Oya to help select the best length for you. 💛

1. Measure Your Inseam
We recommend starting by measuring your inseam, which is the distance from your inner ankle to your crotch. This measurement will help you determine the ideal length for your leggings.

2. Consider The Activity
Different activities require different lengths. For activities that involve
stretching and bending, like yoga, you’ll want to choose a longer length that will cover your legs while you move. For activities like running, you’ll want to choose a shorter length so that the fabric doesn’t bunch up or get caught on your feet.

3. Choose A Fabric
The type of fabric you choose will also affect the length of your leggings. If you are looking for a pair of leggings that offer more coverage, choose a thicker fabric, like a cotton-spandex blend. This will provide more support and coverage while you move.

4. Consider Your Body Type
If you have a longer torso or longer legs, you’ll want to choose a longer length. This will ensure that your leggings stay in place and offer the coverage you need. On the other hand, if you have a shorter torso or shorter legs, a shorter length may be more comfortable for you.

5. Balance Coverage And Comfort
Ultimately, the best length for you will be the one that offers the most comfort and coverage. If you feel too exposed in a shorter length, choose a longer one. If you feel constricted in a longer length, choose a shorter one.

6. Consider The Waistband
When choosing a length for your leggings, make sure to also consider the waistband. If the waistband is too tight, it will be uncomfortable and can cause the fabric to bunch up. It’s important to choose a pair of leggings with a waistband that fits comfortably.
