    Leggings

    Leggings are tight fitting trousers that are worn by women and children for warmth, protection sports or protection. Leggings used to be two separate pieces but are now worn as one. They are typically footless and made of lycra, nylon, polyester blends, wool or silk and come in many different colors and designs. They can be worn under a skirt or pants for warmth or as a substitute for pants. Leggings were first worn as two separate pieces in the 13th century for protection when horseback riding or warmth. In the 19th century soldiers wore them to keep dirt out of their shoes and for stability. Leggings come in different lengths but typically end at the ankle or mid-calf.
