PROS / DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix is a versatile legging. It can be worn for high impact workouts as well as yoga including the heated class. The fabric is very stretchy yet providing enough compression for muscles support. It is lightweight and breathable. The flat waistband stays put and keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / Due to the light color of the legging, it can be see-through unless wearing a nude panty underneath.
BOTTOM LINE / I can't be happier with the purchase of DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. It covers all performance properties I need from studio / gym to street. Moreover, it provides a comfortable and flattering fit. Since it is a light color legging, wearing a nude underwear is a must to avoid see-through.

PROS / DYI Navy + Ivy Striped Printed Signature Crop covers everything I need for yoga as well as gym workouts. The medium high compression fabric is four-way stretch, breathable and moisture wicking. The flat and wide waistband fits comfortably around the stomach and stays put with movement.
CONS / I can't think of anything I dislike about this legging. If I have to pick one, I wish the bottom hem could have fitted tighter below the calf.
BOTTOM LINE / DYI Navy + Ivy Striped Printed Signature Crop is a great legging that I highly recommend to everyone. Either you are a dedicated yogini, a gym rat or neither, the legging has you covered. It provides a wide range of movement for yoga, sufficient compression to support muscles for high intensity workouts, and a comfortably hug for lounging at home.

PROS / DYI High Shine Signature Tight is a perfect studio-to-street legging. It is made with the lightweight Brazen fabric, which is silky soft, stretchy and fast dry. Unlike most glossy shine leggings, the tight does not show VPL (visible panty line).
CONS / The legging isn't very flattering on me. It doesn't lift and butt and fits loose especially around the crotch. I should have got my regular size (XS) for a better fit though I am a small according to the size chart.
BOTTOM LINE / I like the performance aspect of DYI High Shine Signature Tight. The fabric is light weight and low compression which is ideal for heated yoga. In addition, it is breathable and fast dry. With that said, the legging is unflattering on me. It fits baggy with extra fabric around the crotch. Wearing my regular size would have given me a better "hug" and a true size fit.

PROS / DYI Quilted Legging with Pocket is one of the most stretchy yoga pants I've ever tried. It is made with the cottony soft, four-way stretch material. It is breathable and moisture wicking. The flat waistband provides comfort and keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / The legging does not offer high compression needed for high impact workouts, but it's perfect for yoga. The fabric is thicker than I like; however, that makes it a good piece for cold weather.
BOTTOM LINE / I highly recommend DYI Quilted Legging. Not only is it perfect for yoga, but it's also a stylish legging for daily wear. It covers everything I need for yoga featuring four-way stretch, breathability and sweat wicking. The flat, high waist gives excellent coverage for the midsection.

At the time of writing this blog, the Tan Leopard Crop has sold out but the Tan Leopard Signature Ankle Legging is still available. For that reason, I am not able to link the Tan Leopard Crop.
