PROS / SQUAT WOLF Hera High Waisted Legging is a classic black legging to have in the closet. The fabric is high compression and breathable, perfect for high impact gym workouts. It provides tons of muscles support and coverage for the midsection.
CONS / The elastic band (waistband) is tight. Though it stays put with movement, it is uncomfortable and it digs into my waist. For yoga asana practice, I prefer a slightly lower compression legging than this one.
BOTTOM LINE / SQUAT WOLF Hera High Waisted Legging is an affordable legging that covers most needs for gym workouts. The fabric is high compression, breathable and sweat wicking. It is also free from pilling after several washes. The only complaint I have is the elastic waistband being too tight and it pinches the skin.
* Disclaimer: The legging was gifted to me, but the review is my own.

PROS / I love the performance and fit of Om Shanti Clothing Chakra Diamonds Legging. Its four-way stretch and moisture wicking RPET fabric works well for yoga. The legging is flattering with a pinch-free flat waist to keep the tummy tucked in.
CONS / The legging can be see-through unless wearing a nude underwear. The fabric is not high compression, which is less ideal for high impact workouts but perfect for yoga.
BOTTOM LINE / Om Shanti Clothing Chakra Diamonds Legging is a relatively affordable, compared to Alo Yoga, Beyond Yoga and Lululemon, yet high performance legging. The recycled polyester fabric covers all the needs for yoga. It offers four-way stretch, breathable, and moisture wicking properties. The legging provides a comfortable and flattering fit.

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.

PROS / Made with Liquido's custom Poly-Lycra blend fabric, the 7/8 Legging Peacock Plumage offers exceptional comfort and outstanding performance for yoga. It is stretchy, breathable and fast dry. The 7/8 length fits perfect for my height.
CONS / The overlocking seam is my least favorite part of the legging. It doesn't seem very sturdy to me as I can see the signs of stitches being stretched out, especially the back rise.
BOTTOM LINE / I am satisfied with the performance of Liquido Active 7/8 Legging Peacock Plumage or Liquido wouldn't be one of my top picks. The fabric is super stretchy, soft and comfortable. I really like to wear it to practice yoga. However, I have two complaints: 1) overlocking seams and 2) no gusset. Both have become more of a deal breaker for me nowadays.

PROS / Liquido Active Om Legging Celebrate is made with the exceptional soft Poly-Lycra blend fabric. It is super stretchy, fast dry and moisture wicking. The flat waistband sits up to the navel which keeps everything tucked in with a sinfully comfortable fit.
CONS / I am disappointed by the metallic printing pattern. It is basically glitter. It falls off the fabric easily and sticks on the skin. I also can't wash it with any other garnet or the glitter will be all over other clothes. Even though the front and back rises are made with flatlocking seams, the inseams are overlocking seams.
BOTTOM LINE / While I like the silky soft performance fabric of Liquido Active Om Legging Celebrate, I don't like the glittery metallic printing at all. It gets on everything in touch with, including the skin. I would not be surprised if the pattern fades away over time. On the flip side, it is comfortable and the elastic-free waistband provides great coverage and support for the stomach.
