PROS / Carbon38 Ribbed Regular Rise 7/8 Legging is four-way stretch, breathable and sweat wicking. The ribbed fabric is medium high compression, which is suitable for various exercises from yoga to high impact workouts.
CONS / The regular rise provides enough coverage; however, the encased elastic band is extremely uncomfortable. It pinches and digs into my waist. In addition to that, the legging does not mask sweat.
BOTTOM LINE / Carbon38 Ribbed Regular Rise 7/8 Legging would have been a perfect all around legging if it wasn't for the encased elastic band. The ribbed fabric offers all performance needs, including four ways stretch, breathable, and moisture wicking properties. Although it shows sweat spots, the legging is squat proof.
Overall Rating - 9.2 / 10
PROS / Made with the lightweight material, Moonchild 7/8 Seamless legging is four-way stretch, breathable and moisture wicking. The ultra high flat waistband keeps everything tucked in and provides tons of support and coverage.
CONS / The type of the fabric weave is prone to snags. Avoid contact with any rough or sharp object.
BOTTOM LINE / I love the performance and fit of Moonchild 7/8 Seamless Legging. The fabric is stretchy, breathable, and moisture wicking. The ultra high waistband stays put with movement and provides great coverage for the belly. The legging is completely opaque (unlike the Seamless Legging in Dandelion Yellow I reviewed last week) and it does not show the panty line. It works well for various activities from yoga to high impact workouts.

* The score applies to Moonchild Seamless Legging in Dandelion Yellow.
PROS / As advertised, Moonchild Seamless Legging is made with the ultra soft material that gives a second-skin feel. It is lightweight, breathable, four-way stretch and moisture wicking. The ultra high flat waistband keeps everything tucked in and provides tons of support and coverage.
CONS / Since the legging is relatively light in color, it does leave sweat spots. It is also see see-through when wearing a dark color panty. The type of the fabric weave is prone to snags.
BOTTOM LINE / I can't be happier with the performance and fit of Moonchild Seamless Legging. The second-skin feel fabric is soft, breathable, stretchy and moisture wicking. The ultra high waist stays put with movement and provides great coverage for the belly. Although the light weight fabric keeps me cool during the workout, it is prone to snags. I recommend to wear and wash the legging with caution (avoid in contact with any sharp or rough object).

PROS / The seamless design of SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging provides extra stretch and comfort needed for yoga. Not only are laser cut details cute, they also keep me cool during the sweaty Ashtanga practice. Most important, the legging shapes my body curvatures well and keeps the tummy tucked in.
CONS / The panty line can be visible unless wearing a seamless underwear. I also experience sweat marks by the hip creases, which is common for solid color (non-black) leggings.
BOTTOM LINE / l love SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging for its comfort, high performance fabric and flattering fit. It works very well for yoga as well as gym workouts. The legging is by far the most budget friendly yoga pant I've ever seen. For $35 (retail price), it covers everything needed if not more.
I know I have shared quite a few seamless leggings. Before finding the "perfect" one, my search will continue. Among all the ones I've tried and reviewed so far, none of them are scored more than 9.0 except for Alala Seamless Legging. Some common problems I have experienced with seamless leggings are VPL, camel toe and non performance fabric (lack of elasticity, not sweat wicking, not breathable, etc).
Couple months ago, I posted a review, A Miss from Lululemon - Reveal Tight Precision 25". AlthoughI really like the design, I was thrilled by how sheer it was. Since then, I have been looking for seamless leggings with similar laser cut details but I can actually wear to yoga (not see-through). I was so excited when seeing Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight online. Given the similarity of the design between these two, I was hoping the fabric of Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight would be as soft and stretchy as Lululemon Reveal Tight Precision 25" but not see-through. Well, let's take a look whether Athleta Trophy Seamless 7/8 Tight is the perfect seamless legging I've been looking for.
