To start off my review, I think it would be helpful to post my measurements for better accuracy. My bust is 34 inches, waist is 28 inches, and hips are 38 inches around the largest part. Okay, so I followed the new size chart, and I'm glad I did, because everything was true to size for me. I will say my friend and I are almost identical in size and she did get a size 6 in these leggings because she doesn't like a compressed fit. I don't mind a compressed fit and the size 4 worked just fine for me. I was a bit nervous they wouldn't pass a squat test at first because I didn't understand the material. When I would even lift up my leg into a high knee, I could see white, as if the material was being stretched. I'm very pale, so I was nervous it was too small when I saw this. However, if you look inside the leggings, the material inside is white. When I did a squat test (even wearing a bright hot pink thong), nothing was exposed. I will say because this is a compressed fit in both the leggings and bra, both were a bit harder to get on, but once on, secure! These didn't have the pockets, but the matching bra does, so it works out. The mesh on these also feels strong and in tact. For more sizing reference, I'm usually an 8 in the 1.0 and 2.0 shorts from Peony and Mermaid, a 10 in the 1.0 and 2.0 shorts from Dark Bloom, a 6 in the running shorts with the holes designs from Dusty Blossom, and a 6 in the Draw The Line Leggings from Peony and Mermaid. Hope this helps!
I was excited to receive these leggings and they look so adorable on!
Unfortunately the high waist is somehow slippery so I have trouble keeping it up on my waist - when I bend forward it has a tendency to slip down!
Also the fabric these are made of is quite different from other POPFLEX leggings I have. It’s not squat proof and I’ve noticed the print stretches out to reveal white threads underneath.
Bottom line: cute, but sadly not up to par with usual POPFLEX quality!
I've always wanted to buy clothing from the Popflex line, but I've always been too poor. This collection is perfect for me in every way. I am very witchy and love the night sky, constellations, and the like. I saw it an immediately knew I needed to have it. The pattern is beautiful and it feels amazing. I put it on and immediately understood why some people would pay for expensive leggings. They do feel better!
The only problem was I messed up and ordered a size too small. I bought a L, thinking that was a 10, but I should've ordered an XL. They actually do fit, but they're a little tight. I don't know if this is because they are too tight or if everyone is struggling with this, but the leggings can be a little see-through when you squat. The waist band also keeps rolling down, which is my least favorite part (though I'm pretty sure that's because of the size issue).
Overall, I love these leggings. You can see from my Instagram post that I was really feeling myself in them. They make me feel confident and capable. They are so comfortable that I wanted to just wear them around all day, not just to work out. I highly recommend these leggings.... just buy the right size.
I feel a little mixed on this pair.
Pros: fits exactly like the chart said it would
the pattern is so cute
I love the cutaways and the hem
since the pattern is printed on white fabric, it can stretch and appear to be see through (even though it isn't, its an annoying illusion)
For short people or those with thin calves, the scalloping could hang on the leg in an odd way
Overall, I'm happy I grabbed this!
I love the design of the constellations on these leggings as well as the scalloped hem however the fit on these were not quite right. The waistband fits perfect but the leggings are too tight in the legs. I do have more of a muscular build with a smaller waist and bigger thighs, making finding a pair of pants that fit right a chore, but I believe that athletic wear should consider this factor and be stretchy enough to compensate. These leggings are also most definitely NOT squat proof so I will only be wearing these at home or upper body days which is a shame since they are so beautiful! Honestly, for the price I expected way more.
