Meet Valentine: Maker of Matador Meggings
He’s on a quest to re-engineer leggings for men.
Once upon a time, our founder was training to become a yoga teacher. Surrounded by women in yoga pants he thought to himself, “WTF? I’m the only one in this room who can’t wear leggings. If I did, I’d show off my goods to all these poor (or lucky?) women. Someone should make leggings for men so I can join the spandex party. But no brands offer leggings specifically designed for the male anatomy. Leggings have always been an afterthought for men...” So, he got sad about it and went back to downward dog. The end.
He went shopping, didn’t find exactly what he was looking for, and said, “Some of these are passable. But I can do better.” And thus Matador Meggings was born.
Why “Matador” Meggings?
Fashionable and fun athleisure wear.
The inspiration for our meggings comes from the OGs of men’s leggings: matadors, aka bullfighters. Matadors are hyper-masculine but also emotional figures who needed tight-fitting pants that wouldn’t slow them down. After all, we’re talking man vs. bull here. Speed and agility are non-negotiable—and neither is looking badass. So, we took a page from the history books—and now we’ve added our own: men’s leggings for today’s matador. No matter what bull you’re fighting or what bullshit you’re putting up with, our meggings are ready for battle (and the gym, yoga, festivals, parties, Sunday brunch—should we go on?).
Look closely at our meggings and you’ll see that the signature design of the stripes that spiral around the legs represent the horns of a bull. It’s all in the details, Matadors.
What Makes Our Meggings Different?
VPL (Visible Penis Line) is the male version of camel toe. Eww.
Matador Meggings are designed with men’s anatomy in mind. Our high-performance meggings offer a soft molded crotch cup. This No-VPL Technology™ conceals and cradles your Johnson with every move. Yes, these are superhero crotches, my friends. No more shorts over your meggings!
We also added an open pocket for your phone, a zipper pocket for your valuables, an inner drawstring for extra security, and a t-shirt/towel loop to make our meggings even more functional. Because if men are going to wear spandex, they better have a f*cking purpose…or three, ain’t we right?
“Matador isn’t just about men’s leggings. It’s about building a community where men can feel safe in their meggings. Dudes are welcome to show off their booties and flaunt their style too. We're here to boost your self-confidence and unlock a new level of performance.” - Valentine Aseyo, Maker of Matador Meggings
