Target Audience

Whether your target market is teens or moms, they all have one thing in common – they all want to experience comfort. Women like to wear clothes that make them feel like they can conquer day-to-day to-do lists with ease. Leggings have the power to do just that.
Leggings are made to give a person full range of motion, add all-over print to the mix and BAM! You’ve created superhero leggings that everyone loves.
Leggings are predominantly popular among females. It’s a good idea to implement designs that resonate with females such as nurses, veterinarians, social service workers, educators, child-care and home health care providers.
If you sell to a male-dominated audience (welder, car mechanic, electrician, etc.) you may want to incorporate designs that can be purchased as a gift for the opposite gender (electrician wife).

Why sell leggings?

There’s a growing trend of people wearing leggings not just to exercise in but to work in as well. This makes leggings a great niche to start a business in.

Athleisure is on the rise. Introduce product pairings, also known as up-sells and cross-sells, to increase your average order value.

Athleisure: noun. a style of clothing worn as athletic apparel but also suitable for casual, everyday wear: Athleisure looks great whether you’re working out or just running errands. 

With leggings, you don’t have to start an entirely new niche, traditional evergreen niches (family, hobbies, politics, humor, holidays, etc.) will suffice.
Evergreen Content: The word evergreen is most often used by editors to describe certain kinds of stories that are always of interest to readers.
All over print leggings can be sold as standalone products, up-sells, or cross-sells.
What does that mean to you?
Leggings have the power to increase both buyer’s cart size and the amount of profit you’re earning per order.
Better yet create t-shirt designs that compliment your leggings. Your customers won’t be able to resist and they will opt-out to buy both products.
It’s a technique that suggests purchasing not one but two products to make sure the outfit is complete. Retailers use this technique often such as bikini tops and bottoms.

Growing westernization trend and rapid urbanization in developing countries such as India, Indonesia, etc., is expected to result in high adoption of leggings.

Don’t offer leggings yet? You may want to start! Don’t miss out on extra profits that leggings bring with them.
