I have some extra "jiggle" and the tights make high impact cardio more comfortable. I never wear them out in public except maybe to the mailbox or a quick trip to our garden and even then with a long top. I'm embarrassed for women who wear them in public and they are so tight/see-through that you can even see details of their "privates". But most women in public look good with them if they fit appropriately. But then again, I'm old; but then again I was young when hot pants and halter tops were the rage... ha ha
I can relate!!!! I remember I had a pink halter top that I loved…I wore that thing all theI'm old; but then again I was young when hot pants and halter tops were the rage... ha ha
... I wore leotards & tights all the time!! Now, it’s capris (the looser the better &
Do they really help? That’s one reason I think I don’t use my bike that often. My rearbut I still use padded bike shorts for spinning.
Yes they do help! I purchased my first pair in the 80's. We did a lot of road biking then, even did one of those week-long inn-to-inn trips in Vermont. If you bike regularly you can get along without them, but if you only bike/spin once a week or less, the padded shorts will help with the discomfort. You can get padded liners to wear under your other clothing if you don't like the "look".LOL! I had a lot of the Jazzercise workouts…back in the day! I did them a lot, it was

gets numb! Off to search Amazon & see what they offer.
I don't have a brand to recommend, however chamois material is considered the best ... I use a pair for long bike rides on the bike trails - they help with sweat and hold up well. For spin workouts, I'm not choosy as my spin workouts are 30-45 minutes. So I've used inexpensive gel and other unknown padding for spinning. The more padding doesn't necessarily mean more comfort - you just need a bit to take the edge off. The larger the pad, the more it feels like a diaper or big "monthly" wad. If you intend to spin regularly, your sitz bones will adjust and you won't really need the padding after awhile.can you recommend a brand or type, or anything in particular to look for? Thanx.
No. I only wear shorts. I never wear any type of legging, I find them uncomfortable. Plus living in SW FL, I have no need for anything other than shorts.
Thank you very much, I have the same thought when I'm at the grocery store. Don't get me started on the people I see also in slippers instead of shoes.I rarely wear leggings anywhere and I workout in bike shorts or spandex shorts. Whatever they are called. I don't like the feel of a legging when I am sweating and they always slip down. It drives me nuts. Not to be offensive, but most women who wear leggings out and about, really shouldn't. If you have a big can, for crying out loud, cover it up with a long shirt. No one wants to see that. Just sayin'.
I'll stick with jeans and fitted sweatpants.
