Overall Rating - 9.2 / 10
PROS / BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging is a well made high compression legging. The Nylon and Spandex blend fabric is moisture wicking and fast dry, which keeps me stay cool during workout. Laser cut details also provide additional ventilation. The built-in short adds support and coverage.
CONS / The encased elastic band slightly digs into my waist and causes discomfort. I like how the built-in short provides support, but it also curls up, possibly due to my non-skinny legs.
BOTTOM LINE / BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging is a great high compression pant. It offers functionality needed for yoga and gym workouts without sacrificing the style. The only downfall is the elastic band which is not as comfortable as the flat style.

Has anyone noticed that laser cut leggings are getting quite popular lately? Various leading activewear brands have manufactured such leggings in the last few months, such as Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision, Athleta Laser Cut Salutation Tight and Alo Yoga High Waist Seamless Legging. When I saw BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging on sale on Revolve a while ago, I decided to give it a try.
By the way, Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision, Athleta Laser Cut Salutation Tight and Alo Yoga High Waist Seamless Legging are recently released (Jan 2018). I have tried Alo Yoga High Waist Seamless Legging in store. It wasn't very flattering on me and the fabric was quick thick; therefore, I didn't purchase it. As to the other two pairs, stay tune for the upcoming reviews.
Now, let me introduce you BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging.
BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging is made in USA.
BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging is a high compression legging, which provides great muscle support needed for high impact workouts. Although it can be worn for yoga, I prefer lower compression fabric for yoga practice. The material is sweat wicking and fast dry. The laser cut design gives extra ventilation to keep you stay cool. Well, it is a little bit too cold to walk around outside with it in winter.
The tight is well made with the flatlocking seam construction and a lined gusset. It also has a build-in short to provide additional coverage since the laser cut details are all the way up to the butt.
Since I don't wear high compression leggings a lot, I feel some restriction, especially the build-in short. For that season, I prefer not to wear it for yoga. Otherwise, the fabric itself is soft and comfortable. The high waisted style gives support, but the encased elastics band digs into my waist and causes some discomfort.
BELOFORTE Laurent Laser Cut Legging is a high compression legging featuring sweat wicking and fast dry, great for high impact workouts. The legging is stylish and gives a flattering look. There are two designs I would ask for improvements: 1) Eliminate the elastic band for a more comfortable fit, and 2) Modify the build-in short so that it doesn't curl up. Other than that, I am happy with its performance and quality.
