I know I have shared quite a few seamless leggings. Before finding the "perfect" one, my search will continue. Among all the ones I've tried and reviewed so far, none of them are scored more than 9.0 except for Alala Seamless Legging. Some common problems I have experienced with seamless leggings are VPL, camel toe and non performance fabric (lack of elasticity, not sweat wicking, not breathable, etc).
Couple months ago, I posted a review, A Miss from Lululemon - Reveal Tight Precision 25". AlthoughI really like the design, I was thrilled by how sheer it was. Since then, I have been looking for seamless leggings with similar laser cut details but I can actually wear to yoga (not see-through). I was so excited when seeing Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight online. Given the similarity of the design between these two, I was hoping the fabric of Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight would be as soft and stretchy as Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision 25" but not see-through. Well, let's take a look whether Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight is the perfect seamless legging I've been looking for.
Details of Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight -
You may have noticed that I do not assign a score for Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight. The reason is because I returned the legging and didn't have a chance to test it for yoga or other activities. This legging has an opposite problem to Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision 25". While Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision 25" is lightweight, four-way stretch but see-through; Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight is opaque, but the fabric lacks of elasticity and it is too thick for high sweaty workouts.
Top: Niyama Sol Oxblood Exlipse Sports Bra, XS/S (run big).
Bottom: Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight, Crushed Berry, XS (true to size).
Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight is made in Portugal. I notice there are more leggings made in Portugal these days.
Unfortunately, I am not able to provide feedback in terms of the performance of Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight. What I can comment is that the fabric is not stretchy enough for yoga. It is also quite thick (heavy weight) that I wouldn't wear it for high sweat activities.
The legging is 100% opaque and constructed with flat locking seams. It seems to be a high quality piece, but the fabric isn't designed for workouts in my opinion.
The legging is true to size and the XS hugs my body nicely. The high waistband offers great coverage and support. It also hides the muffin top. The waistband style is similar to Avocado Vintage Easy Rider Legging, but it's more durable and doesn't stretch out.
I like how it creates flattering look on my front side, but not so much on the back. Although it shapes and lifts my butt, it somehow magnifies the size of it. It might give me a slimmer look if I choose the Black one over the Crushed Berry.
Overall, besides the flat high waistband that is comfortable, Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight is not the legging I'd wear for any activity, not even for casual wear. Neither is the fabric soft, nor is it stretchy.
From the performance and comfort perspectives, I do not recommend Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight. The material is too thick for me and lacks of elasticity for movement. That said, it is a cute seamless legging that shapes my body curvatures well. The flat waistband provides comfort and keeps everything tucked in.
