PROS / DYI High Shine Signature Tight is a perfect studio-to-street legging. It is made with the lightweight Brazen fabric, which is silky soft, stretchy and fast dry. Unlike most glossy shine leggings, the tight does not show VPL (visible panty line).
CONS / The legging isn't very flattering on me. It doesn't lift and butt and fits loose especially around the crotch. I should have got my regular size (XS) for a better fit though I am a small according to the size chart.
BOTTOM LINE / I like the performance aspect of DYI High Shine Signature Tight. The fabric is light weight and low compression which is ideal for heated yoga. In addition, it is breathable and fast dry. With that said, the legging is unflattering on me. It fits baggy with extra fabric around the crotch. Wearing my regular size would have given me a better "hug" and a true size fit.

PROS / Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging is a classic black legging with cute laser cut scalloped hems. It is made with high compression recycled Nylon and Spandex blend material. The fabric is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry.
CONS / The waistband is too wide for me (1" above the navel). Even though it provides lots of coverage, it don't stay put with movement (tendency to roll down).
BOTTOM LINE / I recommend Beyond Yoga Cruz Scalloped High Waisted Midi Legging to anyone who is looking for a black legging but wanting some extra embellishment. The recycled fabric is sleek. It covers all the needs for yoga and training. Overall, it fits and enhances body curvatures well, but the ultra high waist doesn't work for me.

PROS / Spiritual Gangster Starry Vibes Perfect High Waisted 7/8 Legging is cottony soft, breathable, four-way stretch and moisture wicking. The high waist provides lots of support and makes me feel secured. The fabric is medium high compression, which works great pretty much for any exercise.
CONS / Metallic stars (foil printing) aren't long lasting and they start fading after two washes. While the legging creates a leggy look, it doesn't shape the butt as nicely as some of my favorites. I also don't like the fact that it attracts lints.
BOTTOM LINE / I love the fit (great support) and performance of Spiritual Gangster Starry Vibes Perfect High Waisted 7/8 Legging. The fabric feels like the cotton (very breathable), yet it's moisture wicking and fast dry. Stars are the focal point of the legging; unfortunately, they start fading after two washes.

PROS / Athleta Elation Shimmer Tight is made with one of my favorite materials, Powertiva, with a shimmering finish. It is buttery soft, four-way stretch, breathable and moisture wicking. The medium compression fabric provides a gentle hug and the high waist keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / The tight runs big and the inseam is too long for me even the petite size. The shimmering finish is prone to VPL. In addition, it leaves embarrassing sweat spots.
BOTTOM LINE / Athleta Elation Shimmer Tight is a high performance yet stylish legging. There is no doubt that Powervita covers all the needs for yoga and gym workouts. It would have been perfect if it doesn't leave sweat spots. For a true size fit, do size down; however, it is more likely to show VPL.
