The Problem with Men’s Leggings
What was wrong with good old sports leggings or men’s tights? A lot- just ask any woman forced to share a yoga class with That Guy who’s less ‘the whole package’ and more ‘all bulging package’. From fumbling with additional layers and uncomfortable athletic ‘belts’ to keep the family jewels comfortable and supported, to cramping your style and comfort in baggy layers just to stay presentable, there’s little to love about modern athletic gear for men. Workout clothes for men haven’t kept up with the times- until now, that is.
Until you meet Matador, that is. Here you will find absolutely no VPL (Visible Penis Line), and soft, supportive athletic gear that’s designed especially with discretion and support in mind. A soft, supportive crotch cup keeps everything under wraps without discomfort, while the rest of the design leverages the very best of modern compression technology to help you perform at your peak.
Nor does this comfort come at the expense of style. In fact, Valentine’s worked hard to build an extensive collection (and it truly is extensive, too) of bold and bright, stylish athletic apparel for men that ranges from the practical to the eye-catching. Why should women get to have all the fashion fun in the sports world? Whether it’s showcasing your quirky personality or finding something practical to bust out your morning laps, there’s bound to be something you love here.
Despite the stylish flair, the meggings are designed strategically for the needs of the modern men. We’ve looked at the VPL issue.

Top it off with the very best of compressive, sweat-wicking tech to ensure you never have to deal with crotch stank or sweat marks, and your workout is sure to feel as great as it looks.
