READ ALL!!! Good at first but they stretch out and don’t recoil once you start to exercise!
PROS - I have meaty muscular thighs but an average/small butt, nothing like the models here. However, these flatter my butt even and show off my thighs. They’re definitely flattering and the design is great!
CONS - While flattering when first dressing, the minute you start to workout they stretch and don’t recoil. They stretch out in the hip area, not the waistband. The waistband is a good heavy material which is great, and that stays tight but the rest of the material stretches the minute you do more than 5 squats or even bend over. And then they’re loose in the front area (think opposite of camel toe) - which means you have to pull them higher and higher to hide that and to prevent the newly-formed uni-butt effect (even though they have a small cinching seam along the rear). ~~ The problem is just that the material is too cheap. I bought the same style in some other brands too and found those were better - they stayed compressing while these stretched out.
OVERALL - They’re good if you're just lounging around and not sitting too much but to actually exercise, not so much. I’m sure not even great for running. Definitely not to lift/strength train.
** For reference I am a 4-6 pants (140#) and S-M shirt but I went with a MEDIUM upon reading other people’s reviews. That was a good choice - its loose enough to be squat-proof and not show the spandex. But not too lose that it makes me look bigger and still accentuates my waist (tummy control) and slightly accentuated my bum. The size wasn’t the issue - it’s just a cheap material that once it stretches it doesn’t recoil - I’ve even tried washing and drying to see if that helps but the minute you exercise they’re no good.
These leggings look and feel a lot like gymshark leggings, that’s until you bend over. I was so mad to find out that they are see through, why would anyone want see through leggings??? Within thirty minutes of trying them on I had already printed the return label.
