BILD is celebrating and answering seven questions about sweatpants.

Are sweatpants actually healthy?

And how! Especially because they sit loosely and don't restrict us.

General Practitioner Dr. Thomas Kurscheid (51): “Normal trousers like jeans press on the bowels and cause digestive problems. In addition, it can lead to circulatory disorders when sitting if the trousers cut into the hips and thighs. ”With jogging trousers you do not have this problem.

Which pants shape suits which figure?

In general, everyone can wear jogging pants. Style expert Sonja Grau (55): "If you are not very tall, you should wear jogging pants with cuffs and tight legs."

Can I wear sweatpants at work?

Etiquette expert Nandine Meyden (49): “At home, classic sweatpants are perfectly fine. However, you should only wear them at work if you are a fitness trainer, sports teacher or physiotherapist. In other professions - not! General rule of thumb: Dress as you would expect others to do in your job. ”After all, you don't want to give your money to a sloppy-looking banker.

The situation is different with current models, which even many well-known designers have in their range. They are cut narrower and mostly made of fine materials such as silk, leather or cashmere. They are absolutely suitable for work and everyday use!

Are the sweatpants suitable as sports pants?

Not really. But the sweatpants were a huge step forward in the evolution of sportswear. Sports scientist Prof. Ingo Froböse (58): "It usually has a band on the ankle and prevents the athlete from kicking the punch while running."

Disadvantage: jogging pants made of cotton are not breathable. When you sweat, the moisture is not released into the environment. "The pants soak up, become heavy and deform," says Froböse. Therefore, pants made of synthetic fibers are better suited for sports.

What if someone asks me about my jogging look?

The best way to answer is with another quote from Lagerfeld: "A touch of humor and a little disrespect, that's all it takes to keep a legend alive."
