How to avoid see-through Leggings

Lets face it, there's nothing worse than getting ready to hit your squat PB but being held back due to a lack of confidence in your leggings, in the fear they'll become sheer.

We want you to be confident that your leggings can stand up to the stretch test.

What to look for to avoid 'sheer' Leggings

We've designed all our leggings to be flexible, durable and most importantly, opaque. There's also a few things you can do to ensure you pick the right 'fit for your next workout;


Finding the right blend of high-quality, sweat-wicking materials is key when trying to avoid see-through leggings. A Nylon, Polyester and Elastane blend Legging will be soft, and buttery to the touch, giving that second skin feeling, while helping to wick away sweat from the body during intense workouts.


It's important to get the right fit as sizing down can stretch the material. If the fabric is stretched too tight, the knit may stretch and this can cause sheerness, and we don't want that.

To get the right fit for you, check out our Women's Bottoms and Men's Bottoms size guides.


Avoid light colours such as bright pinks, yellows and light blues. Whilst wearing tonal underwear will help, as a general rule of thumb, we'd recommend sizing up if purchasing lighter colours. Darker colours such as black, grey, dark green and brown are solid choices.


Patterns and prints are your besties. Animal and camo prints, such as those in our Women's Adapt range, are ideal for avoiding sheerness and VPL.

Adapt Leggings

Last but not least...

We've designed our leggings with you in mind, for those sweaty HIIT days, heavy leg days and of course those well-earned rest (and maybe some pizza) days. So you can be sure we've got you covered with your next 'fit.

Based on the above factors, sheerness can look different on everyone. Whilst we can't guarantee our leggings will be completely 'squat-proof', hopefully you'll be able to find the ideal fit from the information above.
