PROS / Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre High Waisted Midi Legging in Black Gunmetal Speckle is silky soft. The high compression fabric, which is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and quick dry, works well for both yoga and gym workouts. The high waist hides the muffin top and the legging gives a flattering fit.
CONS / It runs small and I wear one size up. The waistband is wider than I like as it sits way up to the bottom of my lower ribs and folds down easily even without much movement.
BOTTOM LINE / Beyond Yoga Alloy Ombre High Waisted Midi Legging in Black Gunmetal Speckle is a great studio to street legging. It provides lots of support for yoga and training due to its high compression fabric and high waisted style. The material is stretchy allowing a wide range of movement. It shapes and lifts all the right places of the body. The only downfall is the waistband being too wide.

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.

PROS / Beyond Yoga Fossilized High Waisted Midi Legging is made with the well known Beyond Yoga signature buttery soft material. The fabric attributes include four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry properties. The high waisted style keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / There is an encased elastic band on the waistband that leaves dent marks on my waist. The medium low compression fabric doesn't lift the bum as well as medium and high compression ones.
BOTTOM LINE / Beyond Yoga Fossilized High Waisted Midi Legging is a classic piece that covers most needs for yoga. The fabric is ultra soft, four-way stretch, sweat wicking and fast dry. While the high waistband provides support and coverage, the encased elastic band is not my cup of tea.
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.
All a sudden, glitter, glossy and shiny leggings has become one of the most trendy design elements. Nearly all leading athleisure brands sell such Christmassy leggings this year, including Athleta, Beyond Yoga, Lululemon, etc. It is tempting to steal few pairs for myself.
Here I list five of my personal favorites. Some of them are in my shopping cart, while others are already in my closet, the Yogini's Closet.

It was a surprise, good surprise, to me when seeing Lululemon released this legging. It doesn't strike me as the style from Lululemon. The legging is made with Full-On Luxtreme fabric, which works great for yoga and high impact workouts. Believe or not, this legging is so popular that most of sizes have sold out online within days. Lucky enough, I was able to grab one from the local store. That means, the review will be coming soon. The legging is prettier and not as silvery in person. It has perfect amount of the sparkle on it.
