Did you ever look at something and wonder if your eyes were playing tricks on you?
In some cases, we may think we see something that isn’t there at all. Or we may see something differently than how it actually appears.
For instance, we could swear we see a friend crossing the street when it’s actually another person that looks nothing like them.
Or maybe when driving, it can look as if there’s an obstacle in the street when it’s really just a shadow; or nothing at all.
These types of optical illusions are known as cognitive obstacle illusions. They rely on what the subconscious mind thinks and how it relates one object to another.
So, if you think you saw your friend, maybe it’s because you really miss that friend. Seeing an obstacle in the street may be due to the natural sense of caution that develops when we are driving.
Obstacle illusions can also be created. For instance, artist W.E. Hill made optical illusion art that merged two objects making them look like one.
This method, called a literal optical illusion, can confuse the eye and the brain as you wonder which image the artist is trying to portray.
Physiological optical illusions play with color, light and shape to produce overstimulation of the brain. In these instances, two-dimensional art can seem three-dimensional and shapes can look as if they are moving even if they are not.
Our FiercePulse Optical Illusion leggings are a fashionable piece of physiological optical illusion art. Here are five reasons why you will love them.
#1. THEY ARE SLIMMING TO THE HIP AND THIGH AREA
The Optical Illusion leggings have a print that is black on the inside of the leg and white on the outside. This causes the eye to focus on the slimming black of the leggings while the white area fades into the background.
This is very forgiving to women who tend to carry their weight in the hip and thigh area.
So, what’s the optical illusion here? You look ten pounds thinner!
#2. THEY ARE SUPER COMFORTABLE
Our handmade leggings are known for being super comfortable. All our leggings are made of a soft, supple, polyester-spandex blend that moves with your body.
The fabric is irritation-free and its sweat-wicking properties mean you will stay dry during your workouts. The waistband lies flat against your skin so as not to dig in.
What’s more, the material is squat proof, so it won’t show through when you bend and stretch. Its 40+ UPF provides the ultimate in sun protection.

#4. THEY ARE VERSATILE

They are stretchy and durable enough to be worn to the gym, but because they are so darn cute, they also make a great look for grabbing coffee with friends or running errands.
