Paint Swirl 

Paint Swirl Sports Leggings are made from a high stretch material with a high waistband and a removable drawstring tie.

The material is soft and silky smooth and yet supportive with a very forgiving stretch.

Our leggings also have a small pocket in the rear of the waistband which is perfect for your keys or a standard sized phone.

Our material has a fast moisture wicking capability which can help you to stay dry and maximize your workout comfort.

This fast moisture wicking material also means they dry very quickly after washing.

Flat stitched seams help to avoid chaffing and also help to give you that barely there, second skin feeling

Our leggings are bright and eye-catching and help make your workouts fun.

They are perfect for gym and exercise classes, as well as walking, running, zumba, cross-fit and any other sporting activity. Why not look amazing while you workout!

    Received mine last week, I ordered M as I swing between 10/12, they fit perfect, excellent quality, excellent fit, excellent service. Put them to the test this morning, very comfortable, will recommend to everyone.

  3. Adele (verified owner)

    These are fab. Very comfortable stand up well to squats and all general activity. Love how they feel against my skin as well has being colourful. A Defoe 5 star from me.x

  4. Joanne (verified owner)

    I absolutely love my paint swirl leggings, they are so comfortable and give me more confidence than I ever thought, I’ve worn them for yoga and running and they are brilliant!!! A massive thank you too for making funky leggings which also fit a bigger person!!!

  5. hesgehog_spike (verified owner)

    So comfortable to work out in, look short when held up but once on they are a better leg length than other makes (not so much bunched up at the ankle for us shorter girls)
    Loads of compliments, these look amazing
    One very happy customer

  6. Allie H (verified owner)

    love my new paint swirl leggings , they arrived within 24 hours of ordering. this is my third order as the fit and quality of these leggings are perfect. the waist tie means they can easily survive a body attack class without falling down and they look awesome and stay put on leg day too

  7. Mel McVey (verified owner)

    Absolutely love these leggings, they cheer me up when I put them on, but more importantly they don’t ride up or move when squatting, doing burpees etc..Really comfortable and favourite design.

  8. Georgie Corner

    I love them. Fit like a dream. I’m a size 16 with small waist and lots of bottom and thigh and the xl fit like a glove. Comfortable, squat proof and possibly the best brand of leggings I’ve ever tried. ❤

  9. Lesley

    Oh they are fabulous. My first pair of sturdys and love them. So comfortable and fit like a dream.

  10. Sam (verified owner)

    Amazing leggings! Prefer these to any of my Reebok leggings! Good length (long length), drawstring to keep them up and most importantly… squat proof!! They don’t go see through when you bend over!! Love them!
    A bonus that they are quite slimming as well 🙂

  11. Pamela georgakis (verified owner)

    My favourite pair so far and I have a few !! I missed out on the first release so was sure not to miss out a second time and they don’t disappoint. They stay up whether running or squatting , the right thickness and look amazing (if I do say so myself)

  12. Ann (verified owner)

    Love these! So little choice everywhere for larger ladies but these feel secure (not like they might burst!) and are soooo comfy. Design will hide any sweatiness but the fabric is so good, it doesn’t show anyway. Only slight drawback is I’d like a higher waist to cover my gut (what I call my “spare boobs”) but that’s just me – they are high compared to most others. Soft waist too, no digging in. Love ’em!

  13. Grace Carlyle (verified owner)

    My third (but not last) pair of Sturdy leggings. Awesome quality and fit. Just don’t use velcro straps near them (or any lycra leggings).

  14. Paula (verified owner)

    These have to be my favourites and I have quite a few sturdy leggings. The material is super soft and they fit perfectly. Colour and design of these is great. Perfect as always

  15. Nicola Nuttall (verified owner)

    Love love love these leggings. Great to run in, (nice thick waistband stays in place) perfect for pilates and absolutely gorgeous material, the colours are stunning, everybody wants to know where they’re from

  16. Kirstie (verified owner)

    I Love these leggings so much, the colour is amazing, size is perfect, the thick waste band fits lovely and the material is stunning. I can’t recommend enough. My first pair of Sturdy by design leggings and they’ll be one of many to come.

  17. Lucy Southward (verified owner)

    These only arrived today and couldn’t wait to try them out at our Extreme Mix Dance Fitness class and Clubbercise. As soon as I put them on, they fit like a glove, I am a small in Reebok but had to buy medium here and it was a perfect fit. I had so many comments whilst I was on stage, they were absolutely perfect for Clubbercise! Everyone said how cool they looked with our lights and I had no trouble keeping them up, the length is spot on and the draw string waist adds extra security for squats! Will definitely be purchasing from Sturdy By Design again! ❤️

  18. Christine (verified owner)

    Excellent quality item. The large pocket in the back is very useful and can hold my iPhone. Outstanding customer service!

  19. Rosie (verified owner)

    Oh my goodness, I’ve found my new go-to shop for leggings. These look and feel amazing. Totally squat-proof. No wrinkling down the back of the thighs, almost no wrinkling at the ankles (I have short legs), just a smooth and totally gorgeous silhouette. I’m in love. I’m getting at least another four pairs on payday!

  20. Olivia (verified owner)

    Fantastic! Delivery was super fast.
    I own a lot of fitness gear (I’m a PT) and been disappointed by many. These leggings are really great; soft and well fitting, with no issues squatting.
    I also love the awesome patterns – even my other half said they looked cool! Just waiting for the Lions to be back in stock in my size so I can order some more

  21. Emma (verified owner)

    Received my pair of Swirls within 24 hours from placing the order. My fifth pair of Sturdy leggings & definitely won’t be my last! Amazing leggings, beautiful pattern, super comfortable & totally squat proof! Love supporting a local business! Outstanding customer service too! Can’t fault Sturdy by Design in any way at!

  22. Sam Isted (verified owner)

    I love my new paint swirl leggings. I’m a 10/12 and the medium fit really well. The colours are fabulous and the material is soft and comfortable. The pocket at the back of the waistband is zipped and fits my iPhone 7. I can’t wait to show them off at parkrun on Saturday. Thanks!

  23. Heather Bushell (verified owner)

    Ab Fab. Just received my leggings and they are so comfy and squat proof. I’m 6′ 1″ and 22/24. And they are perfect in length and size. Previously I’ve had to buy my leggings at another well known store but at double the price. Please continue to do more tall and larger sizes as Sturdy by Design will now be my go to company. Thanks

  24. Rebecca Porter (verified owner)

    These are my favourite design of ‘Sturdys’ that I own.
    They are a great fit, very comfortable to run/work-out in and I always get lots of compliments wearing them.

  25. Peter atkin (verified owner)

    My favourite leggings! The design on these leggings has an uncanny knack of making your legs look slim and toned, when I put them on I really never want to take them off! My second pair of Sturdys and definitely not my last!

  26. Keren Broadrick (verified owner)

    Absolutely beautiful.These leggings are stunning. The colours are so vibrant and bright. They are very flattering. My absolute favourites of all my Sturdys.

  27. Carla (verified owner)

    I purchased my first pair of sturdy by design leggings (paint Swirl) over a month ago and I have to say they are still as fabulous now, as they were when brand new. They are very high quality, extremely flattering and wash well. The colours have remained bright and vibrant wash after wash. The sizing is spot on and the material feels lovely on the skin. No chaffing whatsoever) The wide waistband prevents roll down, and the discreet hidden pocket at the back of the waistband is a genius touch. Having just lost over 2 stone I have worn my leggings with pride, to the gym and when out walking the dog, (no hiding behind baggy jogging bottoms), and the compliments just keep on coming. The team at sturdy by design are very helpful and passionate about their product, and deliver a 5 star service to its customers which is a lovely thing to have. I can’t wait to purchase another pair. I cannot praise these leggings enough, hence the long review. Thank you Sturdy By Design.

    Stunning design, really comfortable, plenty of stretch but don’t bag or wrinkle, nice wide waistband which stays in place.
