PROS / Made with the sleek, medium compression fabric (similar to Lululemon Nulux), CRZ YOGA Naked Feeling High Waist Legging - 25 Inches is great for both yoga and gym workouts. It is stretchy, breathable, sweat wicking and fast dry. I like how the high waist keeps everything tucked in and the elastic-free design doesn't pinch the skin.
CONS / The fabric isn't cut perfectly resulting in triangle pieces hanging along the seam on the inside of the legging. The good news is that there is no impact on its appearance, fit and performance.
BOTTOM LINE / CRZ YOGA Naked Feeling High Waist Legging is a great dupe of Lululemon WU HR Tight Nulux. For $24, it provides literally everything I need for various exercises, including asana practice, HIIT and weight lifting. Moreover, it keeps my belly tucked in and gives a flattering fit.
PROS / Made with the medium high compression fabric, Yvette Shift Light High Waist High Support Legging is soft, four-way stretch, fast dry and sweat wicking. The high waist provides tons of coverage and support. Furthermore, the legging gives a flattering fit and it is budget friendly.
CONS / The legging shows sweat stains. The bonded waistband is on the stiffer side. Although it is fine for high impact workouts, it makes me feel restricted in yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / For $22, Yvette Shift Light High Waist High Support Legging covers everything I need for working out, including muscles support. The bonded waistband keeps the tummy tucked in, but it is stiffer than the typical elastic-free waistband. If showing sweat stains bothers you, get a black pair instead.
PROS / Made with the ultra soft fabric, Colorfulkoala High Waisted Patterned Legging is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry. The comfortable fit along with the silky soft material gives a next-to-nothing sensation (similar to Lululemon Nulu fabric) and the high waistband keeps my tummy tucked in.
CONS / Lint balls forms when rubbing the fabric back and forth with my hands (not the same as pilling). The 29" inseam is too long for my height.
BOTTOM LINE / Colorfulkoala High Waisted Patterned Legging is one of the best budget friendly yoga pants. Its performance, quality, fit and comfort are above average and exceeds my expectations. The legging brings me comfort and confident in my practice. For under $30, it has me covered in yoga and more.
Overall Rating - 9.8 / 10
PROS / Constantly Varied Gear Sangria Legging offers everything I need at the gym. The high compression fabric provides tons of muscles support, no jiggly thighs and butts when jumping. The high waistband offers great coverage and keeps the belly tucked in. Two large side pockets are the most thoughtful design and they fit all my essentials including an iPhone 8 plus.
CONS / The color is pretty; however, it doesn't completely mask sweat stains. It wasn't bad after my workout, but I saw few spots along hip creases (barely noticeable). Due to the high compression fabric, I don't recommend it for yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / Constantly Varied Gear Sangria Legging is my new favorite workout pant. The color is super cute and it covers all performance needs for HIIT, Tababa and more. The high compression fabric with additional side seams tightly hug the body in and well support muscles during my workout. There is nothing I dislike the legging other than it being a tad too long.
Disclaimer: The outfit was gifted to me, but the review is my own.
Don't be surprised. This week's review is not yoga pants but jeans. It is the stretchiest jeans I've ever worn, reDEW8 Örn Denim Jeans. Believe or not, its elasticity is on a par with leggings. I don't think there are many jeans in the market that will allow me to do a full split, but reDEW8 Örn Denim Jeans do.
