How we designed the perfect legging

Inside our design process

When we began developing the Ponte Collection, we wanted a best-of-all-worlds stretch pant. Something that was comfortable like a workout legging, but substantial and polished like a street pant. From day one, we knew there were five factors we had to nail: resiliency, transparency, fit, compression, and comfort.

    Our Must Haves

    1. Hold their shape and not bag out after one use.
    2. Totally opaque, so you always feel secure wearing them.
    3. A supportive fit that flatters every body.
    4. Just the right amount of compression to be smoothing, but not restrictive.
    5. Comfortable so you reach for them day in, and day out.

    Custom-Developed Fabric

    To find the perfect fabric and avoid all the problems we saw with other leggings out there, we looked at hundreds of fabrics. We put every element to the test to see how different fabrics would hold up over time and feel on different body types. After rounds and rounds of sampling, we found our perfect ponte knit from our supply chain partner Texollini of Long Beach, California.

    Flattering Fit For All

    For a fit that flatters all body types, we worked with dozens of wear testers and got feedback from women of all different shapes and sizes. The result is a legging that’s comfortable to wear all day, never pinches or digs in, and shows off your curves. Made with a versatile mid-rise, hidden side pocket, and both Regular and Tall inseams.

Four Years Later and Still the Best

Now in 2020, we’ve expanded the Ponte Collection to include more styles, so we’ve renamed some of them to help you always find the one you’re looking for. The Pant is now the Ponte Legging Pant, and the Kick Flare Pant is now the Ponte Legging Kick Flare.
