It’s weird me saying this but I am actually happy to review leggings for a change. This is something I obviously don’t review enough of, and I love styling them.
A lot of people I know who don’t wear hosiery opt for legging instead as they find it easier, more comfortable etc.
This pair was kindly gifted from my Amazon Wishlist 🙂

Normally I don’t wear short tops with leggings, however as these are pretty thick I could get away with it. I paired up my lace crop top with m open toe cut out shoe boots to create an edgy look.

The Packaging: I like how this has come wrapped in plastic packaging; it takes care of the material in transit instead of being shoved in outer packaging and sent. These came with a tag on to state the size.
I unfolded these to check if there was any damage before I got them on – they were all good and damage-free!
Getting Them On: I made the mistake of creaming my legs before getting these on; let me tell you how tough it was to shimmy these up the legs. I had to do it in stages and them really tug them up without damaging them. I finally got there, but certainly learned my lesson!
On The Legs: I am working with a tight fit for sure here, and that is no thanks to the cream on my legs! It makes such a huge difference trust me! As you can see around the knees, a little on the thighs and around the waist too. To be fair I don’t mind it fitted as it does open up slightly with a few wears. If I went one size up, it could either work in my favour or be quite baggy.
The quality of these are amazing; they are nice and thick with decent lining inside and they don’t damage easy. I have pairs in the past where they scratch up so easily and it’s so hard to remove it, especially with the PU coating on them.
The fit is true to size for sure, so I would definitely recommend looking at the sizing guide before purchasing. I could easily go one size up for a less fitted look, but I would also need to take into consideration the waist size as hat could sit a little baggy on me.
The feel of them are so soft and smooth on the legs, even after all that pulling and tugging. They have a lovely PU coat to them, which doesn’t break or damage easy either.
Around The Ankle: it is pretty fitted around this part, to the point my anklets stayed put underneath my leggings and didn’t come down once. These are not elasticated at all so be mindful of that is you do purchase.
You can also fold these up if you find them too long for you; I left mine as I wanted to show them properly instead of folded like I normally do.
The Waistband: it’s properly fitted that’s for sure! However, saying that they didn’t feel too tight around the waist at all. They sat perfectly and didn’t squeeze into me; they hugged really well throughout the day.
These sat an inch or 2 above my belly button, they did not roll or shimmy their way down and they felt super comfortable around the waist.
I will say they are fitted around this area a lot more, but this does slightly loosen up the more you wear them.
I gotta say I really like these; they fit really well, they look incredible and the quality is so good. I would certainly recommend them for sure if you’re into Faux Leather / PU leggings.
