Earlier this month I posted about LuLaRoe leggings. Despite my constant rant about leggings not being pants I love leggings! In the fall and winter I pretty much live in a black dress, leggings and boots. So, I really loved the idea of fun print leggings as opposed to dressing dark and dreary everyday for months. I bought three pairs of leggings, which I feel like was giving them a pretty fair shot. After I received the first two pairs I made this video talking about the brand, leggings in general and these particular leggings
Well, now my 3rd pair has arrived and sadly I must say these leggings are not for me. While the waist stretched just fine on the 3rd pair they are too low rise for my taste and do not stretch all the way down to the base of my ankle. Which is a shame because they are really pretty
I looked at the labels and determined that the ones I liked the fit of were made in China and the other two were made in Vietnam. Here they are stacked on top of another where you can see the inconsistent cut, the green ones at the bottom are longer in both the waist and the leg when I matched them up in the crotch area. (I tried on each pair multiple times in an attempt to fit them to my body)!
Another problem is I had a hard time finding things to wear with my leggings. Being 5'10 I have to reject most cotton tees that are allegedly long enough to wear leggings with. I found one top that met my fingertip rule and with tax it was $92, so needless to say I won't be building a weekend wardrobe around leggings.
So final verdict - these are not good for the tall AND curvey😢. I can totally see how short and curvey people would love them and there are tons of tops y'all can wear with them that go to your fingertips. If you are tall and not curvey I'm still not sure - I hear they can work for you but it might be a person preference on the rise.
For Tall AND Curvey I highly recommend the leggings at Lane Bryant (they are true leggings and absolutely not pants due to their material) , Torrid and Walmart.
