You find a pair of gym leggings you love - the fit is perfection and you can’t stop staring at your assets (c'mon, we all do it) and so you decide to buy another pair. Different style, same size. Disaster strikes. 

The fit is all wrong and you're no longer admiring your behind, but instead are left wondering where it all went wrong. 

Don't panic. Enter Gymshark, with all the information you need - no bullsh*t.

Although we work hard to ensure sizes are as consistent, different styles do mean that sizes can sometimes vary. After some extensive research, we've put together a no bull guide to finding your fit.

First off, we suggest checking out our size guide. So, grab a tape measure and read on...


Ultra high-waisted and figure-hugging, the Amplify Seamless leggings are anything but ordinary. Unique colour gradient lines and contrast panels make for a striking workout outfit.

Fabrics are super supportive but still with generous enough stretch to ensure a close fit and comfort that lasts, so we'd advise sticking to your usual size. Extra points for its glute-enhancing seamless pattern. 


Abstract design is the focus. Asymmetric lines and contrast colour panels make these leggings as stand-out as they are supportive. These bad boys are super stretchy, but we're not scrimping on support. 

Crossover, high-rise waistband creates a flattering shape but also provides a feeling of security that won't budge. We'd recommend opting for your usual size!


Featuring a high-rise fit and intricate, multi-fabric build, the True Texture leggings add cute character to your workout look. They're super soft, comfortable to move in and stretch effortlessly - they basicall feels like performance-enhancing PJs.

These workout leggings are true to size but if you sometimes take a size up in bottoms, we'd advise opting for a bigger size to ensure the seam detailing sits smooth and flattering on the skin. Our favourite's the blush nude!


The Vital Seamless are high-rise heaven. Made from an ultra lightweight stretch fabric, they're crafted for the ultimate comfort as you train. Their soft ribbed waistband flatters and hugs your shape in true seamless fashion.

True to size and featuring DRY technology, they're our current must-haves.


The Flex are made from a sweat-wicking, super stretchy seamless knit and feature a shaded contour pattern. The band is mid-rise, sitting just above your hips. We know a lot of you guys like to pull them higher and if you can do so without compromising the look, go for it!

Keep this in mind when choosing a size. The Flex are definitely true to size, but if you're umming and ahhing, we'd say go up a size. The stretch fabric and DRY technology make the Flex ideal for medium impact cardio and your next heavy weights session.

Fit Leggings

The Fit are suuuuuper soft and incredibly stretchy (17% Elastane, that's a whole lotta stretch), meaning they can be worn mid or high-rise. The versatile Fit leggings feature a handy internal silicone grip inside the waistband to secure your desired fit for a comfortable, supported feel.

Be aware that these leggings are form-fitting with powerful stretch, so we'd suggest your usual size - or even the one down. They're made with thick denier which will ensure perfect coverage in the right size!

Sleek Sculpture Leggings

The Sleek Sculpture are your new go-to's, offering a classic soft and supportive stretch fit. Their double-layered waistband sits high and close to keep you feeling together, no matter the intensity.

The Sleek Sculpture leggings are true to size but again, if you're between sizes we'd suggest sizing up. Ideal at any level of endurance, they're fully squat proof and comfy AF. The matching set is goals.

Dreamy Leggings

Our softest leggings release yet. With a truly dreamy feel. High-waisted, with a close and comfortable fit that hugs in all the right placed. They may feel like a dream, but trust us - they're the reality you've been waiting for. We'd advise sticking to your usual size!

Energy Seamless Leggings

Carefully crafted with detailing that's designed to enhance your physique whilst assisting your workout, the Energy Seamless collection is a new breed of fitness wear. Fabrics are heavy-duty with powerful stretch to keep you feeling the ultimate support.

The Energy Seamless Leggings are true to size but if you're in between sizes or totally unsure, we'd advise sizing up - the powerful fabrics will still have you feeling super secure.

We hope you have found this guide helpful!
