Nike And Champion Introduce Shapewear-Inspired Workout Pants: Because Everyone Wants To Look Hot Mid-Workout

From Left: the updated Nike Legend pants, and Champion’s Absolute Workout Pants

While slimming pants and leggings have already been popularized by brands like Lisse and Skineez, only recently have major athletic brands jumped on the shapewear bandwagon. Last week, I got a sneak peek of the “Nike Legend Pants” at the Nike Women’s Press Preview and was impressed by how much thought went into their new design. With a new “powermesh” panel around the waist that sucks in the gut, pant seams that have been adjusted to contour the line of the leg, and a higher rise in the back to prevent slippage, they’ve essentially been sartorially engineered to make you look hot.

But Nike isn’t the only mainstream active wear brand to concern themselves with slimming technology: Champion also makes workout pants (like the ones above, right) that “skim your hips, follow your curves, and streamline your silhouette,” according to their product description. Although the Nike pants are not yet out in stores, check out Champion’s version and other shaping active wear picks below:
