PROS / SENI by Fit Rebel Edgy Peacock Design Legging is made with the buttery soft fabric that is four-way stretch, breathable, sweat wicking and fast dry. The legging is flattering on me with vibrant patterns hand drawn and painted by Malaysia Batik artists.
CONS / The waistband sits too high on me (above my waistline). As a result, it curls/folds down with movement.
BOTTOM LINE / SENI by Fit Rebel Edgy Peacock Design Legging is one of the most economical leggings. It covers all the needs for yoga, gym workouts and more. The buttery soft fabric is similar to Lululemon Nulux, but costs less than half of the price. The legging is cute and flattering. I highly recommend.

PROS / Terez Blink Tall Band Legging is made with the sleek polyester and spandex blend fabric that is four-way stretch, breathable, moisture wicking and fast dry. The medium compression material gives moderate muscles support, perfect for yoga and gym workouts.
CONS / The 3" wide elastic waistband doesn't stay up. It slides down with movement. Also, it is lower rise than I prefer and felt short on the coverage and support around the waist.
BOTTOM LINE / Terez Blink Tall Band Legging covers performance needs for yoga and other activities. The fabric is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry. It gives a flattering look. However, the 3" encased elastic band doesn't work for me. Not only does it slides down, but it also lacks of the support needed for the midsection.

PROS / Zella Essence Seamless High Waist Ankle Legging is four way stretch and breathable. It provides the comfort and support needed for various activities from yoga to high impact workouts. The body-mapped perforations keep me cool during exercises. Moreover, the legging flatters body curvatures very well.
CONS / The material is on the thicker side for my taste and it is not as soft as Sweaty Betty Prism Seamless Legging. In addition, the waistband stretches out over time.
BOTTOM LINE / Zella Essence Seamless High Waist Ankle Legging is a reasonably priced legging that offers great quality and performance. It covers basic needs for yoga and gym workouts, such as four-way stretch, breathability and muscles support. It also creates a flattering look.
Varley is a popular activewear brand based in London. Although I do not own many Varley's clothes, I follow their new releases and sales closely. Due to the increasing popularity of seamless leggings, Varley finally designs their own. Emerson Snake Legging is the first seamless legging that I noticed from Varley. It comes with three colors, Orchid, Grey and Navy, and five sizes ranging from XXS to L. Most stores do not carry XXS except for Varley.
Top: Lululemon Awaking Bra Taryn Toomey Collection, Misty Mauve, 4 (true to size).
Bottom: Varley Emerson Snake Legging, Navy, S (run small).
I was excited when I first saw Varley Emerson Snake Legging online and couldn't wait to get it. I ordered two sizes, XS and S from Anthropologie, but I ended up returning both. Let's take a look and find out the reason why I didn't keep it.

PROS / I like the high waist style of Niyama Black Rose High Waist Legging. It provides great coverage and support. The fabric is high compression, four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry.
CONS / Although the No-Slip-Waist (two thin silicone stripes fused into the fabric on the inside of the waistband) keeps the waistband in place during workout, it lacks of breathability and irritates the skin.
BOTTOM LINE / Niyama Black Rose High Waist Legging is made with the sleek, lightweight and fast dry Italian material. The high waist style keeps the tummy tucked in and provides great support; however, the No-Slip Waist doesn't work for me due to the poor breathability.
