1. Eurotard Women's 2625 Legwarmer
Eurotard Women’s 2625 Legwarmers are 100% acrylic and resilient in maintaining their original shape.
Pros: The acrylic fabric is lightweight but also keeps legs warm while also wicking away sweat. The material also resists stretching or wrinkling so they stay up well on the calf without slipping.
Cons: The sizing is one size fits all, so the tightness varies per person.
2. V28 Long Leg Warmers
V28 Long Leg Warmers are made of 80% viscose and 20% nylon, coming in 34 multicolored shades and three alternative lengths.
Pros: The extra-stretch yarn used in these leg warmers is meant to stand up to any movement and last for years without digging into your skin as elastic tends to. The thickness of the material keeps your body covered without feeling too tight or restrictive.
Cons: The longer alternative length tends to go above the knee.
3. Body Wrappers Legwarmers
Made of 100% acrylic material, the Body Wrappers 27-inch Legwarmers are snug, but not too tight as they are intended for dancewear.
Pros: Because these are made by a company that specializes in dancewear, these leg-warmers transfer well into yoga practices as they’re meant for athletic use and movement. These non-slip, non-slide products are easy to wear and just as effective.
Cons: The thigh band is less stretchy for a more tight hold on the leg.
