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.

PROS / The Dusted Microstretch fabric of Beyond Yoga Dusted High Waisted Midi Legging is four-way stretch and moisture wicking. The special foil treatment creates a sophisticated sparkle, which is why I bought the legging in the first place. The high waist provides tons of coverage for the midsection and the midi length is perfect for my height (5'2").
CONS / I don't particularly like its ultra high waist and the legging shows minor sweat stains. The metallic sheen is scratchy and not comfortable when doing bound asanas. While I like the fit of the waistband, the front rise seems to be too long and the leg isn't quite snug enough.
BOTTOM LINE / Beyond Yoga Dusted High Waisted Midi Legging is so popular and almost sold out everywhere. The Dusted Microstretch fabric is four-way stretch with the medium compression for muscles support. Unfortunately, it is scratchy when rubbing against the skin in bound asanas and the breathability isn't the best. Nonetheless, it's a stylish and high performance legging.
I want to share what I've been practicing lately for Supta Kurmasana. Using the wall to help get into the pose.

PROS / The seamless design of SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging provides extra stretch and comfort needed for yoga. Not only are laser cut details cute, they also keep me cool during the sweaty Ashtanga practice. Most important, the legging shapes my body curvatures well and keeps the tummy tucked in.
CONS / The panty line can be visible unless wearing a seamless underwear. I also experience sweat marks by the hip creases, which is common for solid color (non-black) leggings.
BOTTOM LINE / l love SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging for its comfort, high performance fabric and flattering fit. It works very well for yoga as well as gym workouts. The legging is by far the most budget friendly yoga pant I've ever seen. For $35 (retail price), it covers everything needed if not more.
