I’m sure that the title of this post may look very alarming, and it is! When you are choosing faux leather panel leggings, you have to stay away from this defect as much as possible!
Although most manufacturers are never going to consider the thing I’m going to talk about a defect in faux leather panel leggings, I do!
Let me tell you that I have been working with faux leather for almost 25 years now, and I know what makes it cracked and what makes it lose its texture and durability very quickly, and the thing I’m going to talk to you about in this post is simply devastating to this fabric!
First, a story about my wife!
Last summer, I bought my wife a pair of faux leather panel leggings, it looked great on her, and she appreciated it a lot, but within two months, it started cracking and even peeling off!
When I took a look, I found out that I made a huge mistake, the one I need to warn you about: I choose an all faux leather panel leggings!
In other words, when you buy faux leather panel leggings that are made entirely with faux leather, you are running the risk of damaging them and cracking them very quickly.
You must understand that the first enemies of faux leather fabric are tears and pressure!
Because of their nature, faux leather panel leggings can be exposed to tears and pressures all the time, especially if they are destined to a plus size woman!
This is the reason why, when I bought the second pair of faux leather panel leggings for my wife, I made sure that they weren’t entirely made of faux leather.
And the wonderful thing about this is that these leggings tend to be way cheaper than full faux leather panel leggings.
The second thing I need to talk to you about is the elasticity of the fabric.
I don’t mean here that your faux leather must be elastic, what I’m talking about is that it must be of high quality and also extremely elastic, if it’s not, it’s going to start transferring pressure onto the sewing and soon, it will start cracking and losing its good looks.
These are definitely the things to be careful about when choosing faux leather panel leggings, and please, if you have a question, don’t hesitate to post it in the comment section below.
