Leggings vs. Yoga Pants: What's the Difference?

 

Leggings and yoga pants are often used interchangeably, but there are some key differences between the two.

Leggings are typically made from a stretchy fabric, such as spandex or polyester, and are designed to fit snugly against the body. They can be worn for a variety of activities, including working out, running errands, or simply lounging around the house.

Yoga pants are also made from a stretchy fabric, but they are typically thicker and more opaque than leggings. They are also designed to be more comfortable and supportive for yoga practice.

Here is a table that summarizes the key differences between leggings and yoga pants:
