Author's Rating - 9.4 / 10
PROS / Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging is a classic black legging with cute laser cut scalloped hems. It is made with high compression recycled Nylon and Spandex blend material. The fabric is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry.
CONS / The waistband is too wide for me (1" above the navel). Even though it provides lots of coverage, it don't stay put with movement (tendency to roll down).
BOTTOM LINE / I recommend Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging to anyone who is looking for a black legging but wanting some extra embellishment. The recycled fabric is sleek. It covers all the needs for yoga and training. Overall, it fits and enhances body curvatures well, but the ultra high waist doesn't work for me.
Details of Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High-Waisted Midi Legging -
I have a mix feeling of Beyond Yoga's bottoms. I love their designs, but I am not so sure about their fits. Their sizing is not consistent and the waist tends to be on the small side. Whenever I order their leggings online, I always check the return policy in case they don't fit me. That said, it never stops by from purchasing their pants. In fact, all my recent purchases fit me nicely.
During Black Friday Sales, I found some great deals. Today, I want to share Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging, one of three Beyond Yoga's Leggings I bought on Black Friday.
Top: Niyama Sol The X-Back Sports Bra, Black, S (run small).
Bottom: Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging, Black, XS (true to size).
The legging is made in the USA.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep or return Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging as I didn't see anything special and I own too many black leggings. But, I am glad to give it a try. First of all, it is made with the recycled Nylon (makes me feel better to the environment). I didn't know Beyond Yoga uses the recycled fabric until now. Different to RPET materials used on Niyama Sol's and Teeki's Leggings, which are cottony soft and medium compression, Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging is silky smooth (sleek) and high compression. It suits for heated yoga and high impact workouts. The fabric is lightweight, the thinnest fabric among all Beyond Yoga's leggings I've tried, but 100% opaque. Moreover, it's four-way stretch allowing a wide range of movement, breathable, moisture wicking and fast dry.
It is constructed with flatlocking seams throughout with a lined gusset. Although the scalloped hem is unfinished, it is frey resistant. The laser cut detail is nicely done.
Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging is true to size and the XS fits me well. I like the length of the midi legging as it's a perfect sneaker length on me. One of the complaints I have is the encased elastic band. I have hard time to wiggle my butt through it at the beginning, but it stretches out after few wears. Also, once the pant is up, it fits just fine. Another complaint is that the waistband is too wide (sits ~ 1" above the navel) to stay put with movement.
It takes a lot for a black legging to go wrong. Black legging, by default, gives the most slim look compared to other colors. Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging is figure flattering. It not only creates a leggy look, but also shapes and lifts the butt nicely. The high waist provides tons of support and keeps me covered.
I like the silky smooth recycled Nylon fabric. It reminds me of Lululemon Nulux "next-to-nothing" sensation but a tighter fit (higher compression). The legging for sure helps me stay cool during hot and sweaty workouts, but it doesn't keep me warm from and to the studio. I highly recommend it for exercising, but not for going out in the winter.
Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging is a classic, high performance legging. It is made with silky smooth and high compression recycled Nylon / Spandex blend fabric. The material is four-way stretch offering a wide range of movement and lightweight to keep me cool in sweaty classes. The high waistband provides tons of support. Unfortunately, it rolls down with movement. That said, the legging is cute with laser cut scalloped hems and covers everything I need from yoga to gym workouts.
