Fashion of today gives much focus on shape and structure enhancement. Hosiery, basically a leg wear, has become an integral part of fashion apparels. Leggings are a type of skin-tight garment that covers the legs and that may be worn by both men and women. Formerly, leggings were two separate garments, one for each leg. Modern leggings are typically made from a blend of lycra (aka spandex), nylon, cotton, or polyester blend, but they can also be made from wool, silk and other materials.
Leggings are available in a multitude of colors and designs. Leggings are sometimes worn fully exposed, but are more traditionally worn partially covered by a garment such as a skirt, a large t-shirt, shorts, or fully covered by an outer garment, such as a full length skirt. Leggings are typically ankle-length, and some are stiruped or encase the feet. Some are shorter.
Leggings are worn to keep a person’s legs warm, as protection from chafing during an activity such as exercise, or as a decorative or fashion garment Though they seem trendy, this style is really straight out of the past. Many women are trading in neutral workout clothes for leggings in crazy colors and patterns. Even though Not everyone wants to highlight their thighs with an explosion of color. The busier the print, the more flattering it is, because the eye follows its movement. When women embrace the trend, they often buy multiple pairs. Changing nature of lifestyle is bringing in a sea change in the legging industry. Manufacturers are taking hard efforts to increase their market share, especially among the younger age group. Competitive pricing plays a crucial role in establishing a strong market for the brands. For getting a successful brand acceptance, companies get into fierce competition providing best bargains and offering promotional discounts to customers. Many brands even offer value added multipack merchandise at throwaway prices. Strong sales are fueling small and big brands such as the following listed below.
