High-rise waist, the waistband has high-quality PVC-coated fabric with stretch. The waistband is flat and not too wide or tight to give a nice slim fit. We used our super comfy elastic for the waistband. They are also made from 85% cotton 85 % spandex so they will stay in place even if you wear them on your thighs or legs. These active-length leggings are designed for high-intensity workouts and full-body movements such as deadlifts, push up or a jump from the squat to the deadlift. The slim waistband provides full support while the wide legs provide additional coverage. They have an elasticized back that allows for a comfortable fit and also provides a quick dry feel.
