There was a time when beautiful female legs were safely hidden under numerous dresses and skirts. But now everything is different! We can safely walk in tight clothes. In some tights you will not go, but leggings or leggings are another matter. It seems not tights, but not pants. But most importantly, the appearance of an attractive appearance does not deprive us of comfort.
But was it always women's clothing? And what is the difference between leggings and leggings? Maybe this is the same thing?
If we talk about what appeared earlier, then an unequivocal answer to this question cannot be given.
Previously, the idols of fashion were just men. And for them, namely for the higher circles of the aristocracy, they invented such “pants” that clearly showed the outlines of the legs. Elk did not find a better material than very thin, well-molded skin. But there was a problem. These tights could not be dressed in a dry state. They were soaked, the skin became elastic and easily repeated all the curves of the figure. Yes, beauty requires sacrifice, and men in the 17th and 18th centuries understood this. Since this clothing was durable and at the same time well stretched, it made movements free, leggings began to sew specifically for riding horses. Later, the material was replaced with suede and leggings made a mandatory part of the dress uniform of the military.
Tights have become as we imagine them, only after the American company has patented a new fiber - Lycra. But such an innovation came to us only in the 80-90s. It was then that the fashion for bright, almost fitting tights appeared. And so initially the man's thing migrated to our wardrobe. But for men, leggings are still sewn - as underwear in the cold season or for sports, not only for sports training, but also for dancing, theatrical performances, light gymnastics.
What is the difference between leggings and leggings? In the understanding of many designers is the same thing. Leggings are English (from leg), and leggings are European. But it is accepted that leggings are more subtle. They put on instead of tights. And leggings - more dense. They are worn instead of pants.
