About L'urv -
L'urv is an Australian label designing comfortable, functional yet stylish sportswear. Its designs are fun and unique, which makes you standout in the fitness crowd. Although L'urv is an Australian company, its clothes are made in China.
When searching for new GEM, I sometimes look up brands by country. For example, I would type in "Australian yoga pants" to see what brands show up. And, this is how I discovered L'urv. Four countries, America, Australia, Brazil and Canada, design the most leading edge activewear.
L'urv Spot Me Legging UNFOLD -
I am a fan of "FUN" patterned yoga pants and L'urv totally falls in that category. I've bought two pairs of leggings from L'urv so far, London Pop and Spot Me. London Pop is classic houndstooth pattern and Spot Me is my all-time favorite polka dot. I am going to UNFOLD Spot Me first. Review of London Pop will come later.
8. Cost – The retail price is AUD119 (~ $90). I bought it on sale from simply WORKOUT. There was buy one get one free deal, so I bought two pairs of yoga pants for $76 (the other pair is Niyama Sol Gray Wanderlust Endless Legging).
9. Stitch Seam – Comfortable flat locking seams (if you don't know what it is, please refer to Closet 101 for detail).
10. Crotch Seam – L'urv has very interesting design. I wasn't sure if I like it at first glance, but it's definitely growing on me. It does not have gusset and adjacent pieces of fabric are not put together into "+" seam either. Instead, two panels are inserted, one on each leg, from ankles and seam together in the center (crotch area).
L'urv Spot Me Legging also comes with two other colors, White/Black Dot (bottom left picture) and Dusty Pink (bottom right picture).
Overall, I like the fun and unique design offered by L'urv, but there is room for improvement on quality and performance. When I started drafting this article, I had London Pop Legging in mind. The plan was changed after seeing unraveled seams on my London Pop Legging (left inner thigh) after one time wear. Luckily, the store is willing to send me a replacement. I will review London Pop Legging once I receive it. Regarding performance, the material is moisture wicking, but it does not release perspiration as fast as other pairs I owned. Since Spot Me Legging is relatively white, especially toward ankle area, it gets dirty pretty easily. I did see dirty spots after coming home from the practice. Fortunately, they can easily be cleaned.
