Happy New Year!!!
Note: Since I returened the legging, I am not able to provide complete rating.
PROS / Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre High Waisted Midi Legging is made with soft and high compression Nylon, Polyester and Spandex blend fabric. It is breathable and four-way stretch.
CONS / The ultra high waistband (sits above the navel) is not very comfortable and digs into the skin.
BOTTOM LINE / Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre High Waisted Midi Legging does not work for me. Despite its soft and breathable fabric, the waistband digs into my skin and causes discomfort. Also, the legging is not flattering on me.

I end up returning the leggings (both sizes) as well as the bra; therefore, I am not able to comment on its performance. That said, the fabric is four-way stretch and breathable.
Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre High Waisted Midi Legging is constructed with comfortable flatlocking seams with a lined gusset. I am quite happy with the material. It's soft and stretchy.
It is true to size and I wear an XS; however, the Small also fits me. I do feel Beyond Yoga needs to improve their sizing consistency. When laying XS on top of Small (shown in the right picture), they are identical in size except Small is 1" longer. I also measure the waist, hip and thigh, they are no difference between XS and Small. When I tried them on, they fit the same other than one being longer than the other.
The legging is not very flattering on me, which is one of the reasons that I decided to return it. Although it lifts the bum, it doesn't create a leggy look. Knowing how popular the legging is, I am sure it looks great on others. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me.
I like high waisted style, but this one is too high for my taste. It sits above my navel and the encased elastic digs into my waist. It is not comfortable and I feel restricted, which is another reason that I didn't keep the legging. That said, the material is soft.
Beyond Yoga Double Back Alloy Speckled Bra -
I also returned Double Back Alloy Speckled Bra. Although it is as cute as the legging, it does not have removable pads nor does it have any sort of lining. The single layer of fabric does not provide sufficient coverage I want for workout. I normally size up for Beyond Yoga sports bra. I am 32B and Small fits perfect.
