At Contrado we love to make your clothes. Your style is our passion, so let us bring it to life with our custom printed leggings. A beautifully made pair of all over printed cut and sew leggings can make any outfit extraordinary, especially leggings, which you design. Each pair of personalized leggings is printed and made by hand, sweatshop free. Choose from 2 different comfortable Lycra fabrics, add your design, and sit back while we make them come to life. Wholesale discounts are available with no minimum order.
These leggings are printed and sewn in-house using our 2 piece leggings pattern which you can use yourself, when you press start design above. We use the perfect legging fabric; Lycra, to make your cut and sew leggings (you can buy just the legging fabric here). You have the option to choose from our silky and smooth Slinky Matt Lycra or shiny, slightly shimmery Lycra Soft Sheen. These custom art leggings also give you the option to choose the top stitch thread color and to print a message or label for your brand as you wish. If you are looking for a specific size of printed leggings, then Contrado is the place. We hand make them in all UK sizes, including all plus size leggings to 4XL. There is no limit to your design journey.
Slinky Matt Lycra
Soft and smooth with a silky handle, our Slinky Matt Lycra gives support and form, making them ideal for customized sportswear. These bespoke leggings 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. Colors look bold and details look accurate.
Lycra Soft Sheen
Lycra Soft Sheen has a shimmering face, making it perfect for fashion leggings. It also has all the stretch you need to make them utterly comfortable and form-fitting. Rest assured, your printed leggings won't fade after washing or wearing, as our dyes soak deep into the surface of the fabric, leaving a permanent print. Colors look vibrant on the stark base color.
All Over Printed Leggings
Wear your style, your way with our made pair of leggings. Perfect for updating your wardrobe or creating your own line of designer 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.
NB: We print a discreet barcode on 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 a active wear 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 color, at no extra cost. Give your leggings a professional touch, with Contrado’s printed Labels.

Reviews for Leggings
Rated5/5 based on2 customer reviews
They fit smaller than size listed, order one size up, my wife can get hers on but uncomfortable tight and nearly see-thru , not sure what to do.
Colin B 01/01/2020
Hi, I love the plus sizes but I would love to have more control over design. The designs I am sending have the art so large. If you had templates that we could use, that would be better. Those of us who are trying to make a go of selling our designs would appreciate it and those who don't understand can still design with the current model. Thanks, Shar
Which Lycra fabric option would be best for creating a line of sports leggings?
You can choose between Slinky Matt Lycra or Lycra Soft Sheen to make your custom leggings online. If you are planning on creating a range of designer leggings purely for sports, then we recommend Slinky Matt Lycra. These custom legging fabrics allow you to optimize 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 personalized leggings 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 customized leggings. Plus size 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 color 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 color model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB color space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best color 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)
For most of our fabrics there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10 yds max to visualize the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20 yds or x4 for 40 yds for e.g.) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with abuilt in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.
Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?
Yes, that might help you! Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 0.2" white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.
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 colors are used. It can be minimized 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 the colors 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 fibers, reducing the color strength slightly (by approx. -40%). For super strong colors we recommend a non-organic natural fabric.
Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation transfer paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.
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 colors and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
What is the situation with material shrinkage?
Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions. This percentage can vary from print run to print run and between fabrics, so we would advise to order a little more material than you require for your project.
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 colors and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Why are there slight color differences between my orders?
We work at improving our color profiles all the time. Though rare, it may happen that from one print run to another, and there could be slight color 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 color variations can be intensified from fabric to fabric due to the varying grains and textures of the fabric. 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.
Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage
We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Contrado, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 0.2" to 0.75" (5-20mm) of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 39.37" x 39.37", you will need to order a size of 39.96" x 39.96" to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:
Light Fabrics (0.59oz-2.95oz): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 0.24" - 0.32" / 6mm-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 0.48"-0.56""/ 12-16mm
Medium Fabrics (2.98oz-5.90oz): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.4" - 1.6" / 35-40mm
Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.5" / 35-40mm
All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage, it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.
How Would you Like the Edge?
We have four finishing options for your fabric order:
As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply scissor cut, perhaps uneven white fabric border.
Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print. We offer an overlock hem, as well as a folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. If you can see both options, it means both are suitable, and you will be able to choose whichever you prefer.
Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your design. This means that if you have a border around your design we will cut around that border, if your design takes the whole space of the fabric, then we will neatly cut around the edge of that image. Please be aware, when we cut along the line, we have to cut against the grain of the fabric. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting. This means that with some fabrics, for example, Georgette and Mulmul, which have a slight wave in them, some fraying will occur. This is unavoidable, as the cut follows the grain of the textile.
All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfectly straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bare this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
Please note: As we make everything by hand, all sizes may vary slightly.
