PROS / Made with the lightweight material, Moonchild 7/8 Seamless legging is four-way stretch, breathable and moisture wicking. The ultra high flat waistband keeps everything tucked in and provides tons of support and coverage.
CONS / The type of the fabric weave is prone to snags. Avoid contact with any rough or sharp object.
BOTTOM LINE / I love the performance and fit of Moonchild 7/8 Seamless Legging. The fabric is stretchy, breathable, and moisture wicking. The ultra high waistband stays put with movement and provides great coverage for the belly. The legging is completely opaque (unlike the Seamless Legging in Dandelion Yellow I reviewed last week) and it does not show the panty line. It works well for various activities from yoga to high impact workouts.

* The score applies to Moonchild Seamless Legging in Dandelion Yellow.
PROS / As advertised, Moonchild Seamless Legging is made with the ultra soft material that gives a second-skin feel. It is lightweight, breathable, four-way stretch and moisture wicking. The ultra high flat waistband keeps everything tucked in and provides tons of support and coverage.
CONS / Since the legging is relatively light in color, it does leave sweat spots. It is also see see-through when wearing a dark color panty. The type of the fabric weave is prone to snags.
BOTTOM LINE / I can't be happier with the performance and fit of Moonchild Seamless Legging. The second-skin feel fabric is soft, breathable, stretchy and moisture wicking. The ultra high waist stays put with movement and provides great coverage for the belly. Although the light weight fabric keeps me cool during the workout, it is prone to snags. I recommend to wear and wash the legging with caution (avoid in contact with any sharp or rough object).

I am going to share something slightly different to what I normally post today. Last week, Lululemon introduced New Curved Waistband for Always On High-Rise Tight 28". It makes me wonder if that is going to be the new trend after the high / ultra high waist leggings. Five years ago, high waist leggings became popular. Almost everyone I know loves the coverage and support they provide. I rarely see people wearing standard waist leggings in yoga world today. In fact, I am a big lover of high waist leggings.
I am definitely seeing more V-shaped Waistband or Curved Waistband leggings in the market these days. The first one that caught my attention is Beach Riot Cara Legging, which I believe was released last year (but I could be wrong). I thought that was just the style designed by Beach Riot. For that reason, I didn't put too much thought into it until I saw Lululemon brought the Curved Waistband to the market last week followed by Glyder. I did some research and found quite a few brands making similar style leggings. Since they are still new to me and I haven't had chance to test any out, I don't know if I am going to like them more than high waist leggings. That said, I still want to share what brands are making v-shaped / curved waistband leggings today.
Note: The following leggings are sorted by their prices (high to low).
Among these leggings, I am interested in Core 10 'Build You Own' Yoga Pant the most because I've never tried the brand. Moreover, it is highly rated and the price is right. If you own any of the leggings mentioned above, I'd love to hear from you.

PROS / SQUAT WOLF Hera High Waisted Legging is a classic black legging to have in the closet. The fabric is high compression and breathable, perfect for high impact gym workouts. It provides tons of muscles support and coverage for the midsection.
CONS / The elastic band (waistband) is tight. Though it stays put with movement, it is uncomfortable and it digs into my waist. For yoga asana practice, I prefer a slightly lower compression legging than this one.
BOTTOM LINE / SQUAT WOLF Hera High Waisted Legging is an affordable legging that covers most needs for gym workouts. The fabric is high compression, breathable and sweat wicking. It is also free from pilling after several washes. The only complaint I have is the elastic waistband being too tight and it pinches the skin.

PROS / I love the performance and fit of Om Shanti Clothing Chakra Diamonds Legging. Its four-way stretch and moisture wicking RPET fabric works well for yoga. The legging is flattering with a pinch-free flat waist to keep the tummy tucked in.
CONS / The legging can be see-through unless wearing a nude underwear. The fabric is not high compression, which is less ideal for high impact workouts but perfect for yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / Om Shanti Clothing Chakra Diamonds Legging is a relatively affordable, compared to Alo Yoga, Beyond Yoga and Lululemon, yet high performance legging. The recycled polyester fabric covers all the needs for yoga. It offers four-way stretch, breathable, and moisture wicking properties. The legging provides a comfortable and flattering fit.
