I know these are compression leggings but when they say compression they are not messing around! The dark blue/teal color is beautiful. I'm 5'3" and about 190 (thanks quarantine for the extra 15 lbs) and got a large. It was comical trying to get them on because they are so tight (compression). Once on, I felt like I was wearing a girdle--no thank you. Even if I sized up, I don't think I'd like these leggings because they are too much for me. I don't like wearing girdles or spanks. If you don't mind them, then these are for you!
Pros: very comfortable, flattering; while they didn’t pass the sweat test, they do dry very quickly so when I stopped for a quick errand after the gym it wasn’t an embarrassment! (I ordered the teal)
Cons: I don’t feel the fabric is “workout” fabric. It’s more of a nylon and while it is not super thick, it still felt like I was working out in panty hose and that will take some getting used to for me. They do come up really high and therefore do roll down a bit with vigorous workouts (burpees, squat jumps, etc).
For the low price, I’m not going to return, but they will likely become a lounge around the house legging for me, not a workout pair.
I should have sized up bc I puton some pounds over quarantine but... I didn't. That's my fault! I can still get these on and surprisingly they don't feel like they're cutting off circulation since they were so hard to get on lol! If I got the right size, these would be prefect though! Love the thickness of the fabric and how they feel on!!
I usually wear a medium or a large, but these leggings in large were too tight for me (especially in the booty and thigh area) which is really unusual. The leggings themselves are not that stretchy and the high waist area is really good for compressing the midsection which is flattering. Not good leggings for working out/running, etc because they are so stiff.
These leggings are a great find! I have been on a weight loss journey for almost one year and do have some loose skin below my waist. Was amazed with the comfortable fit that truly holds and smooths out lumps and bumps. I ordered size large.
Love these! The compression is just right and still comfortable. Not squat proof thickness though so I’m bummed about that. I just make sure to have a shirt or sweater that covers my bum if I’m wearing them in public.
