What was your first impression? “Oooh, this color would look great with a chunky cream turtleneck.”
What are your thoughts on the material? The leggings stretch and I like its near-seamless style, but the material erred too much on the sheer side for my taste.
Do you feel it gets the sizing and length right? I’m 5’1″, so my life is a never-ending search for the perfect ankle legging. I appreciate that you can choose between two lengths, but the XS was still too long for me, so it had that awkward bunching effect at the knees and ankles. I rolled the leggings in to make them a bit shorter!
What activity did you do in the leggings? Yoga! And cleaning my apartment because what else do you do in leggings?
How does it compare with other leggings in your closet? As a self-professed leggings expert, I’d say my overall impression is that this is definitely more of a lounge legging than a workout one, especially since the waistband rolls during stretches. It’s also not as thick and compressive as some of my other leggings, but that’s a personal preference.

What was your first impression? My first impression was “I hope these fit.” Thankfully, the leggings have a ton of stretch, so I had no issues. Don’t be afraid of what they look right out of the box; they’re not as small as they seem.
What are your thoughts on the material? I was surprised at how much they were able to stretch while maintaining their color and opacity. They also kept me relatively warm for how light the fabric is, and you couldn’t see through the material.
Do you feel it gets the sizing and length right? I’m super tall and they fit to my ankle! To me, that’s a huge success. I prefer my leggings to hit me right around or below the ankle, and I was worried even the longer option would be too short.
What activity did you do in the leggings? I did my regular Sunday stroll around my neighborhood in Brooklyn—grabbed a coffee, ran a few errands, bought a plant! No need to pull these leggings up or down. They stay put as you walk.
How does it compare with other leggings in your closet? I usually buy true running leggings with a bit more weight to them (I jog outside in allll types of weather). These were on the lighter side.
