In the late 2000s, there was a resurgence of the skinny jean style, and people were looking for more stylish, tight, and comfortable jeans, so jeggings were born.

Jeggings entered the fitness scene in early 2010 and were one of the most popular apparels of 2010. Over time, more and more people choose to wear jeggings for sports and fitness, and this is because Jeggings can provide the feel of leggings and the look of jeans.

  • Denim Fabric

First, Jeggings are usually made from lightweight, high-stretch denim fabric. General skinny jeans are made of regular high-stretch denim. So jeggings will be lighter than skinny jeans.

  • Softness

Second, the denim used to make jeggings will be softer than the denim used to make skinny jeans. But at the same time, skinny jeans will be more durable and abrasion resistant than jeggings.

  • Design

Third, jeggings are designed to be tighter, so its waist design is a super-elastic elastic waist, without zippers or buttons. At the same time, there is no design without extra pockets to avoid affecting the shape of the leggings.

Skinny jeans usually don’t have an elasticated waist, but have buttons, snaps, or zippers for closure. Skinny jeans also have pockets for carrying personal items.


What Types of Denim Fabric Are Used for the Jeggings?


As mentioned above, great elasticity and soft touch are the two main characteristics of jeggings. Its characteristic comes from the fabric from which it is made.

Jeggings are made from a different fabric than traditional denim. The denim fabric used for jeggings is usually denim made from a blend of cotton and spandex. The elasticity of jeggings mainly comes from the touch of spandex, and the softness of jeggings mainly comes from the high-quality cotton of the fabric.

If you want jeggings to last longer, you can choose denim made of high-quality cotton and Lycra blend for jeggings. Lycra elastic quality is better so the price will be higher.

As a consumer, you may have encountered a similar problem: Sometimes when you are purchasing a pair of jeans, you need to spend several times buy-return-buy-return actions before making it enter into your wardrobe.

  • Stable Stretch

Higher elasticity, on the other hand, means more risk of yarn slippage, especially when sewing with low density along the seam.

AT1058 utilizes a unique striped-core yarn, in which two spandex and one PTT filament are wrapped inside in one stretch yarn. Compared to single-core yarn which is applied mostly in stretch denim, it can reduce 70% yarn slippage, and greatly reduce loose-seam problems.

Also, more spandex involved means more stable stretch performance during high-intensity movement, greatly preventing baggy or saggy problems. No need to worry about it can’t stay its shape after a few movements.
