These design leggings also give you the option to choose the top stitch thread colour and to print a message or label for your brand as you wish.

Soft and smooth with a silky handle, our Slinky Matt Lycra gives support and form, making them ideal for customised sportswear. These custom leggings for women will fit and flatter, with enough stretch and support for your specific needs. Our custom printed legging fabric has a stark white base tone, making it perfect for printing on. Colours look bold and details look accurate.

Lycra Soft Sheen has a shimmering face, making it perfect for design leggings. It also has all the stretch you need to make them utterly comfortable and form-fitting. Rest assured, your printed leggings won't rub off after washing or wearing, as our dyes soak deep into the surface of the fabric, leaving a lasting print. Colours look vibrant on the stark base colour.
Custom Leggings for Women
Wear your style, your way with our UK made pair of custom leggings for women leggings. Perfect for updating your wardrobe or creating your own line of design leggings. Since we print the material, you can be sure they are all over printed, with the ink penetrating deep into the seams, as seen on our preview screen in our leggings pattern.
We print all of our custom leggings for women using a modern digital printing method which penetrated eco-friendly inks deep into the fibres of your chosen fabric. This means that all custom leggings print is part of the material itself, rather than a layer or transfer that sits on top of the material. This ensures a long-lasting print which is fade-resistant.
NB: We print a discreet barcode on the internal hem of the left leg, invisible from outside, containing the unique reference, proving they are truly original and one of a kind.
Your label, your brand
If you’re looking to build an activewear brand, then our printed labels are perfect for you. Add a custom printed label to the elastic hem of your Leggings, and add your brand name, logo, or images. We print the label directly onto the lycra, in full colour, at no extra cost. Give your leggings a professional touch, with Contrado’s printed Labels.

Great quality, amazing personalisation, super quick and easy process-delivery service.
Website easy to negotiate, very prompt delivery. Product (leggings) fit ok - my normal size (10-12) - but I would order the next size up if ordering again.

Very impressed with the quality!
The garments were well constructed and the print quality was excellent. The colours and fine details read very well, better than anticipated. The order arrived very quickly. It's all a bit of a revelation, so amazing to be able to get affordable, high quality printing for small orders.

I created a pair of leggings for Kylies Glastonbury performance! It was a fast turn around - amazing quality and all round great service! Most photographed leggings of the weekend!
Helen R 03/07/2019
Designs look excellent
The quality of the print is great. Often custom products are printed "on top" of a material yet this feels like it is part of the material. The material also feels and looks great. Customer support was great when I called immediately after placing the order to check if I had made a mistake in the design. Leggings arrived quickly. Only downside is that I use these leggings for teaching yoga and the waistband is not substantial enough to stop the feeling of them coming down. A broad waistband might potentially solve this issue. (There is a lot of interest in the hearts design)

I have created the leggings from my pictures and I was a bit worried about what quality they are going to be. And I was worried without a reason, the quality of the leggings itself is very good and the quality of pictures is super. The leggings were shipped very fast and in no time I had with me. Definitely recommend.

Excellent service all round!
It's always stressful ordering online but was able to chat on line with support staff, product arrived very quickly and was exactly what we needed. Excellent service!
Lesley M 06/12/2018
I ordered 4 pairs, they all look as expected, great colour, good placement of my image. The Lycra Soft Sheen is my favourite fabric, very comfy. The Slinky Matt Lycra feels plastique and a bit more stiff. I will def order some more lycra soft sheen! good job
Emilie B 05/11/2018
I absolutely love the pattern
The leggings are made of great material,soft and light.I was very happy that they were shipped so fast, the only thing to complain about is they run small so I needed a bigger size
Diana F 20/06/2018
Great quality look at sizes maybe ?
Great result on these leggings.
The only thing I’d say is look at the sizing .. I do a lot of sport and know leggings run small in general so orders 3 sizes up and only just fit me .. need to lose a little weight to fit in perfectly
Which Lycra fabric option would be best for creating a line of sports leggings?
You can choose between Slinky Matte Lycra or Lycra Soft Sheen to make your custom leggings. If you are planning on creating a range of design leggings purely for sports, then we recommend Slinky Matte Lycra. This personalised leggings fabrics allow you to optimise movements during exercise. They are more opaque and provides great support, which you will appreciate during exercise.
Are the leggings suitable for both men and women?
Our leggings pattern has been designed in-house to be a perfect fit for the female form. Both fabric options have enough stretch and elasticity to fit and flatter most body shapes and sizes. If you are looking to specifically design your own custom printed men's leggings, get in touch with us, via email or chat, as we are currently working on these and they should be available soon.
Do you make plus size leggings?
The simple answer is yes because we make all of our custom leggings for women to order. At Contrado, we believe creativity and design should not be limited by size. This is why we have such a wide range of sizes available for our design your own leggings UK. Plus size custom leggings are something which we are passionate about, as they allow those of all shapes and sizes to be able to embrace their personal style.

Leggings Fitting Details
Our Ladies leggings are designed to be quite a tight fit, especially in the Slinky Lycra. The Lycra Sheen and Sparkle do have more stretch allowing for a slightly looser fit and more movement. Our model Andrea is 5'9" with a 62cm waist, 92cm hip and wears a size Small
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image.
How will my image scale?
When you upload your design our system will automatically scale it to fit your chosen fabric dimensions. In the ‘Product Image’ tab, the displayed dimensions under ‘Print Size’ will show the dimensions of the piece of fabric that you are ordering. For image/design dimensions you need to see the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab. You can see and edit the dimensions of the image under the quality information next to the thumbnail.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What is gsm?
Grams per square meter (gsm) is the unit of measurement used to measure the weight of a paper or fabric. This measurement uses the weight of one square metre (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a fabric. We classify fabrics of 10-100gsm as light (fabrics for summer, fine silk), fabrics of 101-249gsm as medium (most fabrics for clothing) and fabrics of more than 250gsm as thick (upholstery and other specialised fabrics).
What is the bleed area?
When creating your product, it is important to make sure that your image is a little wider than the size needed. In printing, the bleed area allows you to obtain a borderless print. We would advise filling the blead areas, maked with a red checkered area, to ensure you don't end up with white edges. You should make sure that you do not put important details within the bleed area as these will quite likely be lost.
What is crocking and why might it occur?
Crocking, which is fading along the creases, often after washing or heavy use, occurs when you digitally print on natural fabrics - more so when dark or dense colours are used. It can be minimised by using a cool hand wash instead of machine washing as the tumbling of the machine is the main cause of this. To avoid entirely, we would advise using a poly fabric.
Why do my colours appear lighter on organic fabrics?
Our organic fabrics do not have any coatings that the non-organic fabrics have. This means the ink absorbs into the fibres, reducing the colour strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colours we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Can you perfectly join two separately printed panels?
We always try to provide the utmost precision in printing and manufacturing. However, due to unavoidable stretching or movement of the fabric at the time of sewing, we can not guarantee a perfect alignment of the pattern on the seams of the garment. Generally we are accurate to 2-3mm, which is sufficient for most reasons but can pose minor problems with patterns or geometric designs.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Is it possible to print your own label?
Most of our clothing is made with a label space. You can print your label and add information about your brand. If you want to sew your own labels, we offer customizable labels of different sizes.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight colour differences between my orders?
We work at improving our colour profiles all the time. Though rare it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight colour differences, this is normal and part of the process when we are constantly improving. It is extremely unlikely that there will be a huge difference (like orange instead of red for example). Please bear in mind such colour variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric; natural fabrics tend to have more muted colours than their poly alternatives. This is due to the construction of the materials as well as the print methods that have to be altered slightly for more delicate, natural textiles.
Why is there a barcode inside my clothing?
Due to our internal processes here at Contrado, there will be a barcode printed on your garment. This is inside the clothing and will not affect your design. It is usually found towards the bottom.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, you may find a slight variance in the sizes.
