Overall Rating - 9.6 / 10
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.
It's the last week of June. The time has gone by way too fast. When I was kid, I hoped to grow up faster. I used to count how many more midterms and final exams I would have before completing my master degree. It was a long journey as I started the school at the age of 5 till 25. That was 20 years of my life. The period of time felt like forever. Now I am working in a corporate world full time, teaching yoga and blogging part time. My life can't be more busier. Since I am mostly occupied and living in a fast pace life, the time flies much faster than ever. Now, I wish it could slow down. Maybe I just need to pace myself.
By the way, I recently discover few activewear / yogawear brands, including BEWILDHER, ORAKI and The Salvage. I am hoping to try them out soon.

I am impressed by what DYI offers for their products: fashion forward design, supreme performance, extraordinary comfort and flattering fit. I've seen lots of improvements made over the past years, from DYI Tan Leopard Crop, Quilted Legging, High Shine Signature Tight to the most recent released Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. I am glad that they don't release new prints as often as Lululemon or I am going to be broke.
It's time to reveal my new addition DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix.
The legging is made in USA.
If you like how Lululemom Wunder Under Tight Full-On Luxtreme performs, you won't be disappointed by DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. The fabric is sleek, four-way stretch and high compression. It is breathable, fast dry and sweat wicking. The legging can be worn for almost any exercise. Some leggings work well for yoga, i.e., Liquido 7/8 Legging Peacock Plumage, while others are better for strength training like Varley Kensington Legging. Of course, there are versatile leggings providing all performance properties for any activity, such as DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. Every since I got this legging, I've been wearing it every week either to yoga or Tabata class. The high rise makes me feel secured and keeps the stomach covered during the workout. Most important, it stays in place with movement.
I've owned this legging for over a month and I do wear it a lot. After several wears and washes, the legging is holding up well. There is no pilling, color fading and thread unraveling found. It is sewn with flatlocking seams throughput and a lined gusset is included. The fabric has good shape retention property, especially the flat waistband. Regardless how many washes it has gone through and how long I have it on, the waistband remains hugging the belly nicely and providing tons of support.
I don't consider this legging see-through though I can't pair with a dark color panty. When wearing a such light color pant, especially the one that's close to white, wearing a nude underwear is common sense. It is definitely squat prove as long as it is a light color panty underneath.
It is true to size and I wear an XS. I can't be happier of how nicely it hugs the body. Not only does it hide the muffin top, but it also creates a skinny / leggy look in addition to shape and lift the butt. Even though the inseam is only 22" (one inch longer than Lululemon Wunder Under Crop), it is stretchy and fits more like a sneaker length one on me, which is perfect.
This is the legging I would wear for however long I can because it is THAT COMFORTABLE. The fabric is sleek and soft. The perfect amount of the compression gives the great sensation of muscles hugging. The elastic-free waistband is no pinch and no dig. Once you have the legging on, I am sure you wouldn't want to take it off, just like me.
I LOVE DYI Printed 7/8 Crop BW Stripe Mix. It is cute, high performance and comfortable. What a perfect legging from studio to street. The legging is versatile. It is super stretchy for the wide range of movement in yoga, yet provides tons of muscles support for high impact exercises. While it covers all the performance needs, it also gives a flattering look. Just make sure to wear a light color underwear to avoid see-through since the legging is close to the white color.
