Overall Rating - 8.4 / 10
PROS / Strut-This Ankle Legging offers stretch fit, moisture wicking and fast day. It covers almost all the needs for yoga and gym workouts. The ruched waistband provides lots of comfort, support and coverage.
CONS / The legging is constructed with four thread overlocking seams, which shows the sign of threads being stretched out and leaves marks on the skin. Since it is a white legging, a light color underwear is recommended to avoid see-through.
BOTTOM LINE / Strut-This Ankle Legging provides great comfort and performance needed for yoga as well as high impact exercises. It shapes and lifts all the right places of the body and gives a flattering look. The ruched waistband, my favorite design, hides the muffin top well. That said, I am disappointed by overlocking seams used on the legging.
About Strut-This -
Strut-This was started in the summer of 2011 by two mother-daughter teams, Cynthia and Aubrey Sieder who are located in Los Angeles, California, and Barbra and Raquel Lesser who reside in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Two locations, four people, one vision - designing affordable activewear to serve those looking for cute, sweat-absorbent and practical workout outfits. Their goal is to create a line that gives flattering looks from workouts to running errands.
Details of Strut-This Ankle Legging in Wildcat -
Strut-This Ankle Legging reminds me of CHILLBYWILL Blessed Legging Stripe. These two leggings share quite a few similarities, such as the fabric and ruched waistband. Since I love the ruched waistband of CHILLBYWILL Blessed Legging Stripe a lot, I decided to try Strut-This Ankle Legging.
Here comes this week's review, Strut-This Ankle Legging in Wildcat.
Top: Niyama Sol Sage Diamondback Sports Bra, XS/S (true to size).
Bottom: Strut-This Ankle Legging, Wildcat, XS (true to size).
The legging is made in the USA.
I am satisfied with the performance of Strut-This Ankle Legging. It is stretchy, moisture wicking and fast dry. It may not be as breathable as cotton, but it's good enough for activities I do.
Maybe Strut-This Ankle Legging is cheaper (5-10%) than some of my favorite athleisure brands, but I still expect flatlocking seams for how much it is priced. I don't like to see the sign of threads being stretched out. Although that is common with overlocking seams, it doesn't seem to be long-lasting. Otherwise, the fabric is durable and anti-pilling. The legging is relatively light in color, so I highly recommend to wear a nude color underwear to prevent see-through.
It is true to size. I wear an XS, which is equivalent to Lululemon size 4. Overall, the legging gives a very flattering look. It shapes and lifts all the right places of the body. The ruched waistband is one of my favorite designs. Although it's not high waist (my preferred style), it provides sufficient support and coverage. Most importantly, it hides the muffin top.
The fabric is similar to CHILLBYWILL Blessed Legging Stripe, which is sleek and soft. It is light-weight and medium compression. The waistband is comfortable and the encased elastic band is pinch-free.
I love the fit and performance of Strut-This Ankle Legging in Wildcat. It is flattering and covers the needs for most activities I do. The ruched waistband is one of my favorite design features. It provides comfort, support and coverage (hides the muffin top). It would have been better if the legging was constructed with flatlocking seams. Since it is a relatively white legging, a light color underwear is recommended to avoid see-through.
