I had to size up because they were out, but I still love them! I get tons of compliments on these.
The pattern on these is adorable and the matching bra is as well, but with these I definitely get the stretching/fading on the butt. I'm on the shorter side, so they fit more as full length, but they're still pretty flattering!
To be honest, I feel on the fence with these so it's better if I just listed pros and cons. Then you can understand why I rate this 3/5 stars.
PROS: Very cute, love the scallop trim detail, the colour is nice and deep, fabric feels nice against the skin, nice to lounge or hang out in, makes my butt pop, looks flattering, waist never digs into my soft flesh (I have a soft body with 35% body fat)
CONS: Whenever I run it feels like it's gonna slip off of me, the stitching and the mesh "sausages" my calf muscles, not squatproof so wear the right underwear for it
So that's why I never use these to workout in which is too bad, but I do enjoy wearing them when I go out.
First time ordering leggings from popflex active, I ordered in 2X to be safe. I absolutely LOVE THE DESIGN! They felt wonderful to put on and wear and I was super excited to work out in them. The only downside (if you can call it that) is that it would slide down sometimes depending on the fabric of the underwear I was wearing (Hoping that wasn't TMI). Other than that, no complaints <3
I got these as a christmas present. I love the feeling and the length however due to my stomach i can't really do cardio comfortably cause i like my workout clothes to sit around my waist and these fall down. With my body shape though I realize it's a lot to ask for workout pants to cinch my waist after having to go over my hips and butt XD So I won't fault popflex and it's designers. But maybe in the future add a drawstring to something like this or some biker short type to make them cinch the waist for us big hip/big butt/big stomach girls...
I ordered an XS. I have a 25 inch waist and 34 inch hips. Anything larger I’d be swimming in. But the stitching around the calves makes my muscular calves look like sausages! It’s not the correct stitching for mesh. Also, as many other reviews say IT IS NOT SQAUTPROOF AT ALL. The design is cute. The waist is flattering. But there are so many errors in the action execution of these leggings. This quality for a $24 pair of leggings? I’d have no complaints. But for $60? Skip yourself the hassle, buy something different. Very disappointed. I mean, the fit is great, the print is adorable. But for a leggings brand founded by someone who does Pilates, you would think that they would be better suited for movement. The only thing I could recommend these leggings for is sitting on your couch. But they’re not even that comfortable because of the poor sticking on the calves. Not happy for the price.
I did have to order a size up as my chart size was sold out by the time I ordered however it’s cute and SOOOO comfortable. The fabric is buttery smooth to the touch and they are SQUAT PROOF. You do see some white but that’s because the fabric is dyed blue. The waist band rolls down on me but I’m sure it’s because they’re a tad big. The leggings overall don’t fall down so it doesn’t bother me! If you’re on the fence about getting these DO it! You won’t be disappointed! Just order according to the chart and you’ll be golden :)
