PROS / Varley Kensington Legging is made with the ultra soft and sleek fabric, which is four-way stretch, moisture wicking and fast dry. It is cute and covers needs for most gym workouts. It comes with three stash pockets on the waistband, two small ones at front and a big one on the back.
CONS / The legging runs big. My regular size XS fits loose on me, especially behind the knees and the bottom hems. The drawstring and elastic band leave skin indentation marks. Since it is light color, it can be see-through unless wearing a nude panty.
BOTTOM LINE / Varley Kensington Legging is such an eye-catching legging made with the high performance fabric. It is soft, stretchy, sweat wicking and fast dry. While I like most features of the legging, there are two things that are less than ideal. 1) It isn't 100% opaque. I have to wear a nude panty to avoid see-through. 2) The elastic band provides lots of support, but it also pinches the waist leaving indentation marks.

PROS / Terez Black Cheetah Foil Tall Band Legging is unique and stylish. The cheetah foil printing is subtle but not boring. The fabric is sleek and soft. I don't mind the 3" elastic band as it stays put with movement and keeps everything tucked in.
CONS / The fabric is not stretchy enough for big movement, especially the foil printing. Although I can put the pant on, I can't wear it to yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / I own few pairs of Terez leggings, but Terez Black Cheetah Foil Tall Band Legging is by far the most disappointed pair. Regardless how flattering the legging is and how well it hides the muffin top, it can't be worn for workouts due to the poor elasticity.

PROS / Purusha People Your Soul Grows Legging is made with the soft, medium compression and four-way stretch fabric. It works well for yoga as well as gym workouts.
CONS / The legging is not flattering on me. It shows the panty line on the back and leaves wet spots after a sweaty workout. The "V" seam on the back of the waistband is too low. It gives me a feeling of wearing the legging half way down like a sagging pant. Also, it is sewn together with overlocking seams throughout.
BOTTOM LINE / The performance and feel of the fabric used for Purusha People Your Soul Grows Legging are great. It definitely serves the needs for various activities; however, it is not flattering. Although it creates a legging look, it shows the panty line and doesn't lift the butt. I also don't like the seam of the waistband being so low.

PROS / Onzie Selenite Midi 7/8 Legging is not your basic boring plain legging. The jacquard like texture and mesh detail create a subtle yet rich pattern. The high-rise waistband stays put and keeps me covered during the class.
CONS / The fabric is scratchy and not soft. The thread used for the hem lacks of elasticity. It requires some effort to pull it over the heel. The legging is constructed with uncomfortable overlocking seams. There is an elastic band on the waistband that digs into the skin.
BOTTOM LINE / Onzie Selenite Midi 7/8 Legging covers essential needs for yoga and gym workouts. The fabric is four-way stretchy, breathable and fast dry; however, it is scratchy. The high waistband keeps the midsection covered, but the encased elastic band digs into the waist and leaves skin indentations.

PROS / EMILY HSU DESIGNS Skulls Legging is an affordable legging and covers needs for yoga. It is four-way stretch and moisture wicking. The ultra high waistband is comfortable with an option to be folded over. It also provides great coverage for the midsection.
CONS / The legging is made with overlocking seams and there is no gusset. The inseams are scratchy. The fabric doesn't have tons of compression, which is fine for yoga but may not be the best choice for high impact workouts.
BOTTOM LINE / EMILY HSU DESIGNS Skulls Legging is sleek and chic. The fabric is stretchy enough for the wide range of movement, perfect for yoga. The super high waistband is comfortable and covers the stomach very well. For $20 (I bought it on sale), it is one of the best "investment" I've made.
