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 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.

It provides a gentle yet compression body hug. It can be worn for various activities from restorative yoga to high intensity workouts.

It allows me move freely in yoga yet provides sufficient muscles support in HIIT. The ultra high waistband keeps everything tucked in. In addition, the legging gives a flattering look.

PROS / Yvette Shift Light Legging in Purple is one of the most comfortable leggings I've ever worn. The exceptionally soft fabric is lightweight, stretchy, breathable, fast dry and sweat wicking. The flat waistband stays put with movement and provides great coverage. Moreover, the legging sculpts the lower body very well.
CONS / The legging shows VPL (visible panty lines) due to the lightweight / thin fabric. Wearing a seamless underwear is a must. Just like most non-black plain leggings, it shows sweat stains, especially by the hip crease and sacrum areas.
BOTTOM LINE / I highly recommend Yvette Shift Light Legging to everyone who is looking for THE perfect yoga legging. It offers all performance needs as well as the comfortable and flattering fit. Most importantly, it is budget friendly. While there are so many things to like about this legging, it is prone to show panty lines and sweat stains.
