High waist gym leggings offer more coverage over the tummy than regular fitting leggings. Some find having less of their body on show while working out more confidence-inspiring. The higher waistband also provides extra security which stops the leggings from slipping down during exercise. This is very distracting when performing exercises such as squats or lunges.
