Overall Rating - 9.7 / 10
PROS / K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging is made with the four-way stretch Nylon/Spandex fabric. It is sweat wicking and fast dry. The high-rise waist gives a flattering and no muffin top fit. The legging is medium compression, which suits for any activity.
CONS / The legging runs small. I size up and wear a small. It is not constructed with flatlocking seams throughout. For example, the waistband and bottom inseams have overlocking seams.
BOTTOM LINE / I can't be happier with the fit and performance of K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging. It is flattering with a unique flat front seam to avoid unappealing or uncomfortable female fit. The high-rise flat waist keeps everything tucked in. The material is stretchy, breathable, moisture wicking and fast dry.
About K-Deer -
Top: Zella Impulse Sports Bra, Black, XS (true to size).
Bottom: K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging, S (run small).
K-DEER was launched in 2012 by Kristine Deer, who is the founder, CEO and designer of the company. Practicing hot yoga six days a week, Kristine struggled to find clothes that fitted her increasingly sweaty lifestyle. With her background in fashion design, she began sampling different styles of clothes and then shared them with yoga teachers and yogis for their feedback, which was how she started in the activewear business.
As an RYT200+ certified Barkan Method Hot Yoga teacher, Kristine understands the needs of hot yoga practice. With that in mind, she develops and nurtures all the right details into her line. She selects a high quality, top performance American made fabric that is four-.way stretch and rapid moisture wicking. And, everything is locally manufactured in New Jersey.
Details of K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging -
This is not my first experience with K-DEER leggings. I ordered couple pairs from Nordstrom Rack in the past, but I returned them because they weren't very flattering on me. I think those patterns just didn't work for me. While I was about to give up K-DEER, I decided to give it another shot. I am glad I did. I took advantage of the end of season sale and ordered two pairs of sneaker length leggings, Sedona and Twilight (sold out). They turn out to be awesome and become my new favorites. Now I can see why K-DEER leggings are so popular and highly rated. I am sure most of you have seen the popular Signature Stripes Collection if not owning one already.
Let's take a look of my new love, K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging.
The legging is made in USA.
K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging is one of the most stretchy yoga pants with medium compression I've ever tried. Normally, the stretchier the material is, the lower compression it is. The fabric is so stretchy that I can actually wear it over the heel though the inseam is only 25" long. Moreover, it is breathable, sweat wicking and fast dry. The material is sleek but not the same to any Nylon and Spandex legging. It doesn't give me a synthetic nor cottony feel. I wish I can find a word to describe it.
The waistband stays put with movement. The legging is suitable for all activities I do from yoga (heated and non-heated) to high impact workouts. It has more than enough elasticity for yoga and sufficient muscles support for gym workouts.
The legging is well made and the high quality material is used. It is mostly constructed with flatlocking seams besides bottom inseams, which are overlocking seams. I wonder if that's the design choice. I don't like overlocking seams because the sign of stitches being stretched out is noticeable (shown in the picture below) and they tend to leave marks on my skin.
The gusset is similar to L'urv Spot Me Legging and WERKSHOP Purple Scales Legging. There is one piece of fabric (a stripe) extending down to the knee. So far, the color is well maintain (vibrant) and the legging is pilling free.
Overall, the legging is flattering. It creates a leggy look. The high-rise flat waist keeps everything tucked in and provides great support and coverage. The unique front seam design (no seam in the center) avoids potential embarrassing fit at the crotch. I notice the bright pinkish stripe hits the bottom of the hip (back side), which seems to make my bum look flat.
K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging runs small. I wear a small and it fits perfectly on me. I like the sneaker length. It sits right by my ankle. I am sure it will fit just fine even if you are taller than me (I am 5'2") as I can also wear it over the heel without over stretching the legging (length wise).
The fabric is soft and the legging is comfortable to wear for workout as well as lounging at home. I don't particularly like the overlocking seam as it leaves dent marks on the skin but doesn't cause discomfort.
I would definitely recommend K-DEER Sedona Sneaker Length Legging to everyone, regardless the type of exercise you do. The medium compression fabric is four-way stretch, breathable, sweat wicking and fast dry. The unique front seam design in addition to the flat waistband hide the muffin top very well and provide great support. The legging is flattering, high performance and well made.
