Nope, You’re Not The Only One Who Gets Holes In Her Leggings

Ah, leggings: Whether you love them or hate them, it’s kinda impossible to work out on the regular without owning at least a few pairs. Which is why it’s the absolute worst when every pair seems to give you plumber’s crack (not. cool.) or gets holes in the thighs. (Chafing: ugh, right?) Luckily, there are easy fixes for all your biggest leggings issues.

THE PROBLEM:
‘My leggings get stretched out and roll down.’

THE SOLUTION:
Find high-waisted leggings

Assistant beauty editor Erin Reimel’s leggings are screwing with her concentration during yoga classes. “Instead of thinking about my pose or stretch, I’m focusing on whether or not my leggings are falling down,” she says.

To remedy the situation,”a high-waisted style is the way to go,” says Gabrielle Porcaro, senior fashion editor at Women’s Health. “It creates a clean line, stays put, and make you feel more comfortable during a workout.”

Leggings should feel snug but not cut into your torso. “You don’t want to be in pain, but you do want it to stay up properly,” adds Porcaro, who recommends avoiding cotton leggings since they’re more likely to lose their shape over time.

Erin admits that her mom gave her the leggings in her “before” photo—and she often relies on gifted bottoms instead of shopping for pairs that actually fit her well. “The new leggings feel amazing—like a second skin,” she says.

The lesson learned? “I’m definitely going to take ownership of buying my own leggings from now on.”
