PROS / Designed for high impact workouts, Varley Estrella Legging provides tons of muscles support. The fabric is four-way stretch allowing full mobility. In addition, it is moisture-wicking and quick dry.
CONS / The waistband slightly digs in to the skin. The fabric provides too much compression for yoga (not really a bad thing since it is meant to be high compression).
BOTTOM LINE / Varley Estrella Legging has me covered in high impact workouts with great muscles support and body hugging sensation. Not only is the high compression fabric four-way stretch, it is also sweat wicking. It keeps me stay cool during sweaty exercises. Moreover, it gives the butt a nice lift.
PROS / Beyond Yoga Viper High Waisted Midi Legging is a stylish legging. Made with medium high compression faux leather fabric, it provides tons of muscles support and body hugging sensation.
CONS / The fabric has plastic feel and does not breathe well. Also, it fall short on elasticity.
BOTTOM LINE / Although Beyond Yoga Viper High Waisted Midi Legging is super cute and stylish, it does not cover performance needs in yoga and gym workouts. Not only does it feel plastic, but it also lacks of stretchiness and breathability. The shiny finish gives an unflattering look.
PROS / Sweaty Betty Disco Foil High Waisted 7/8 Workout Legging provides performance needs for gym workouts. Not only is it four-way stretch, but it also features sweat wicking property. Combined the medium-high compression fabric with the high waist, it gives tons of support and makes me feel secured during the workout.
CONS / The gunmetal glitter print does not hide sweat stains. The legging fits loose behind the knee to accommodate the less stretch foil print.
BOTTOM LINE / Sweaty Betty Disco Foil High Waisted 7/8 Workout Legging is stylish and yet covers all performance needs at the gym. The medium-high compression fabric provides tons of muscles support and the high waist keeps the belly tucked in. Although it is quad proof, it doesn't mask sweat stains.
Overall Rating - 9.8 / 10
PROS / Made with the cottony soft Powervita fabric, Athleta Leopard Elation Ultra High Rise Tight features great breathability, sweat wicking and fast dry properties. It provides a gentle yet compression body hug. It can be worn for various activities from restorative yoga to high intensity workouts.
CONS / Although I wear an XS Petite, the legging is a tad too long for me (about half an inch too long).
BOTTOM LINE / Athleta Leopard Elation Ultra High Rise Tight is an awesome all around workout legging. The Powervita fabric is buttery soft and stretchy. It is moisture wicking and fast dry. 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.
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.
