Move Over, LBD: Activewear Is the New, Survey-Approved First-Date Uniform
"Male respondents were 75 percent supportive of activewear on a date while women were a bit more tepid, with 59 percent approving," Zoosk research showed.
Through a survey of more than 7,000 users and analysis of more than a million profiles, Zoosk determined that 69 percent of people were excited about the athleisure prospect. "Wearing workout clothes on a date is actually a turn-on for the majority of singles," the survey found. Male respondents were 75 percent supportive of the attire choice while women were a bit more tepid, with 59 percent approving.
But everyone (including men) loves leggings: 46 percent of men ranked the bottoms as the most attractive piece of activewear, followed by spandex (*shrugs*). Women similarly ranked yoga pants as the most attractive item, though at a much lower rate (18 percent), followed closely by basketball shorts at 17 percent.
But, to really make your profile appealing, combine your leggings-clad profile photo with mentions in your bio of guacamole and veganism—yes, really—and you may just find love after all (or at least a lunch date).
Which pair of leggings should you wear on your date? Maybe a pair from Moda Operandi's new activewear edit or a comfortable pair of high-waisted leggings.
