I’ve ripped a few pants in my adult life, thanks to my muscular legs, but I’d never consider losing muscle to fit into a pair of pants. Instead, I buy what fits me. Athletic, shapely legs need room. Not just for comfort and fit, but also for healthy blood circulation. This is why super tight jeans and pants are simply a bad option. “Stretchy” is the keyword. 3-5% spandex pants usually do the trick. The pants below vary from work-appropriate to casual. All are stretchy, super comfy, and flattering to an athletic shape.
These pants are on my Amazon short-list.
Wait, pants specially designed for muscular women? That’s exactly what Barbell Apparel carries.
