Overall Rating - 9.0 / 10
PROS / The seamless design of SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging provides extra stretch and comfort needed for yoga. Not only are laser cut details cute, they also keep me cool during the sweaty Ashtanga practice. Most important, the legging shapes my body curvatures well and keeps the tummy tucked in.
CONS / The panty line can be visible unless wearing a seamless underwear. I also experience sweat marks by the hip creases, which is common for solid color (non-black) leggings.
BOTTOM LINE / l love SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging for its comfort, high performance fabric and flattering fit. It works very well for yoga as well as gym workouts. The legging is by far the most budget friendly yoga pant I've ever seen. For $35 (retail price), it covers everything needed if not more.
Disclaimer: The outfit was gifted to me by SQUAT WOLF; however, the review is my own.

Details of SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging -
SQUAT WOLF is new to me. I didn't know the brand until they reached out to me for the collaboration. I am more familiar with US, Canada, Brazil and some European based athleisures. When I was asked to pick the outfit, I chose She-Wolf Seamless Tee and Legging in Beige. I've been wanting a seamless top for a while, and this set couldn't be more perfect. In addition to the seamless set, they also sent me their most popular outfit from the Hera Collection, which I will share in the near future. Let's take a look of my recent favorite outfit, SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging and Tee.
The legging is made in China.
I was obsessed with seamless leggings a while back and purchased quite a few pairs including Alala Seamless Tight, Sweat Betty Prim Seamless Legging and Zella Essence Seamless High Waist Ankle Legging. Well, these are the ones that I own, but I've reviewed more than a handful in the past. I have a special attachment to seamless leggings and that's why I chose SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging. Also, I really want the She-Wolf Seamless Tee.
I am satisfied with the performance of SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging. I had concerns of the fabric being too thick and inelastic as those are often seen on seamless leggings. Its material is medium weight (pretty much the same as Zella Essence Seamless High Waist Ankle Legging). It is stretchy, breathable and sweat wicking. It works for yoga and gym workouts. Unless you need high compression legging for running, this legging gives sufficient muscles support for Tabata, HIIT and weight lifting.
I don't recommend the legging for heated yoga, i.e., Bikram Yoga, for two reasons. First, the material is on the thicker side and it can be too warm for hot yoga. Second, sweat stains can be visible around hip creases due to excessive perspiration.
It is one of the most affordable yet high quality leggings I've ever seen (even if I had to pay). Where can you find a $35 legging that's well made and not see through? Its construction is comparable to $100 leggings if not better. There is a gusset for reinforcement and the fabric is 100% opaque. I particularly like the laser cut details, which are neatly cut. Although it says the color is beige, it is more like brown / mocha color in person. I've worn and washed the legging several times, and it's holding up well, no pilling and color fading.
It is true to size. I wear my regular size XS and it it a perfect fit. Not only does it lift and shape the butt nicely, it also gives a flattering look. The high waist provides lots of coverage and support for the belly. Even better, it hides the muffin top. One thing to watch out for when wearing a seamless legging is that the panty line can be visible. You must wear a seamless underwear to avoid VPL. I normally wear Chantelle Lingerie Soft Stretch Seamless Hipster Panties in Ultra Nude color. It's by far the most see-through and VPL proof panty.
26" inseam is slightly too long for me since I am only 5'2". At least there is not much excessive fabric gathering around the ankle. One inch shorter would have been perfect.
The flat waistband is comfortable and pinch-free. In addition, it keeps everything tucked in. Although the fabric is not silky smooth, it is not scratchy. It's soft enough to wear for long time.
Before trying out this legging, I thought Zella Essence Seamless High Waist Ankle Legging was the best budgetary legging. Guess what! SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging wins the title of the best bank for the buck legging. If SQUAT WOLF can sell such high quality activewear at a very affordable price, can you imagine how much markup from the other athleisures?
SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Tee -
While I like the legging, I am also in love with SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Tee. I've been wanting a top like this for long time. It is tricky to find a top that fits my frame because I have a pretty wide shoulder. I've tried Alo Yoga Lark Long Sleeve in the past, but it was a tight fit and not flattering. I am glad that She-Wolf Seamless Tee fits me well and it costs only a fraction of Alo Yoga Lark Long Sleeve ($74 vs. $26.5).
What I like about the She-Wolf Seamless Tee is the fit. It provides extra room for breathers but it's snug enough to stay put with movement. The sleeve of the She-Wolf Seamless Tee is a tab too long and there is no thumb hole. That said, it's still a great piece to lay over the sports bra or tank top from and to the studio (or gym). I also wear it at beginning of the practice or workout when my body is still cold.
SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging is by far the best budgetary tight that I've ever tried. Not only does it cover all performance needs for yoga and gym workouts, but it also provides a comfortable and flattering fit. The flat waistband stays put with movement and the high rise style keeps the stomach covered. Other than the VPL (can be avoided by wearing a seamless panty) to be watched out for, I love everything SQUAT WOLF She-Wolf Seamless Legging offers.
