Seamless leggings have totally changed the fitness game. They’re really soft, hug your curves, and can transition from the gym to the street effortlessly. I love wearing them literally everywhere because they are the comfiest pants I’ve ever put on and look pretty put together—especially considering they’re just glorified sweats. So many brands have come out with their own versions of seamless leggings, but I’m just going compare two of the most Instagram-popular seamless brands. Today’s comparison: Gymshark Vital vs Jed North.
Watch this video review from Gabrielle Tongol, and then read my thoughts below to get a couple of perspectives on these leggings.
The first is the latest version of seamless leggings from Gymshark (Vital Seamless) and the second is by a new brand that is on the rise, Jed North (Supple Seamless). Both are cute—but which one is more performance-friendly? Not all seamless is created equal!
Are Gymshark Leggings Squat-Proof?
You might ask, what are squat-proof leggings? The answer is simple: these are leggings that remain opaque when the material stretches as you bend down. Gymshark leggings are great for weightlifters and will pass the squat test with flying colors. However, the neon colors aren’t as squat proof as the marl shades. That said, I’ve never really had an issue with either. Keep in mind, whenever you wear seamless leggings, expect the outline of whatever underwear you have on underneath to show through—even if it’s a thong.
Are Jed North Leggings Squat-Proof?
If you’re looking for great quality at a great price, try Jed North. The style is very cute and flattering and squat proof! They also appear as if they would be more sweatproof than the neon Gymshark seamless leggings, due to the heather shades.
The Verdict: Gymshark Vital vs Jed North
They’re both great, depending on your needs. The Jed North leggings are a bit more squat-proof than the neon-colored Gymshark leggings. Also, the Jed North waist fits a little looser, and the thighs fit tighter than the Gymshark Vital leggings. Still not sure? Contrast them with the Lululemon Align Pants, Athleta leggings, or the Lululemon Speed Up Tights. When the weather’s warm, look into other options, too, like the best Lululemon women’s shorts.
