PROS / DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix is a versatile legging. It can be worn for high impact workouts as well as yoga including the heated class. The fabric is very stretchy yet providing enough compression for muscles support. It is lightweight and breathable. The flat waistband stays put and keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / Due to the light color of the legging, it can be see-through unless wearing a nude panty underneath.
BOTTOM LINE / I can't be happier with the purchase of DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. It covers all performance properties I need from studio / gym to street. Moreover, it provides a comfortable and flattering fit. Since it is a light color legging, wearing a nude underwear is a must to avoid see-through.

PROS / Made with Liquido's custom Poly-Lycra blend fabric, the 7/8 Legging Peacock Plumage offers exceptional comfort and outstanding performance for yoga. It is stretchy, breathable and fast dry. The 7/8 length fits perfect for my height.
CONS / The overlocking seam is my least favorite part of the legging. It doesn't seem very sturdy to me as I can see the signs of stitches being stretched out, especially the back rise.
BOTTOM LINE / I am satisfied with the performance of Liquido Active 7/8 Legging Peacock Plumage or Liquido wouldn't be one of my top picks. The fabric is super stretchy, soft and comfortable. I really like to wear it to practice yoga. However, I have two complaints: 1) overlocking seams and 2) no gusset. Both have become more of a deal breaker for me nowadays.

PROS / Liquido Active Om Legging Celebrate is made with the exceptional soft Poly-Lycra blend fabric. It is super stretchy, fast dry and moisture wicking. The flat waistband sits up to the navel which keeps everything tucked in with a sinfully comfortable fit.
CONS / I am disappointed by the metallic printing pattern. It is basically glitter. It falls off the fabric easily and sticks on the skin. I also can't wash it with any other garnet or the glitter will be all over other clothes. Even though the front and back rises are made with flatlocking seams, the inseams are overlocking seams.
BOTTOM LINE / While I like the silky soft performance fabric of Liquido Active Om Legging Celebrate, I don't like the glittery metallic printing at all. It gets on everything in touch with, including the skin. I would not be surprised if the pattern fades away over time. On the flip side, it is comfortable and the elastic-free waistband provides great coverage and support for the stomach.
PROS / prAna Serafine Legging is made with the sustainable hemp and cotton fabric, which is soft and breathable. I love the design of leg cuffs with convertible stirrups to avoid the fabric from pilling when wearing the legging over the heel.
CONS / The legging is not flattering on me. The material is thicker than I like to wear for working out. Although it is quite breathable, it doesn't seem to dry fast enough for hot and sweaty yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / There are many things to like about prAna Serafine Legging, including the sustainable fabric (hemp + cotton) and great breathability. I don't mind the thick fabric as I can wear it when teaching or home practicing in winter, even though it's not ideal for hot yoga and high impact gym workouts. To me, the fit is the main deal breaker. It isn't a snug fit and the inseam is too long.
Note: Since I returned the legging, I am not going to provide the full review as usual today.

PROS / The glossy liquid finish of Carbon38 High Waisted 7/8 Length Takara Legging is stylish and versatile. It gives a sleek look from the studio to the street. The fabric is soft, stretchy, breathable and sweat wicking. The wide waistband keeps everything in place during any workout.
CONS / The elastic band is too wide and not comfortable. It makes me feel restricted. The fabric is not wrinkle resistant. It gets very wrinkled if I keep it folded in the closet.
BOTTOM LINE / I love the performance of the glossy, leather like fabric. It covers everything needed from yoga to high impact gym workouts. The 7/8 length is perfect for my height (5'2"). The only complaint I have is the ultra wide encased elastic band. Although it keeps everything tucks in and stays put, it is too uncomfortable to wear.
