Full disclosure? I live in work out leggings. But the real secret is that I don’t wear them to the gym, ha! I love compression leggings for everyday life. Especially at this post-holiday time of year when you ate every cookie, drank every cocktail handed to you and then did it for oh, 30 days straight!
I love pattern leggings and I think the Spanx leggings are revolutionary. I recently went to a party and perhaps five (at least) girls were rocking the faux-leather Spanx leggings! That’s right girls! Suck in that stuff, praise Sarah Blakely and get the leather look for less! God bless, Sarah.
Here is a roundup of leggings I’m digging. Throw on a t-shirt, a long sweater and a cute hat and “go to the gym.” Then splash some water on your face before you get home so you fake everyone out. 🙂
Don’t size up. They should fit comfortably, but snugly. If you size up too big then you’ll get droopy butt!
High Rise is the way to go – the higher on the waist your leggings fit, the better you’ll feel! It will suck in all of those love handles and you’ll feel like a million bucks!
Don’t cheap out – a quality legging will last and last. If it’s cheap it won’t suck in your lady lumps and will get gross as you wash them. Invest in a good pair.
Buy one for errands, one for going out! I’m telling you – the Spanx Faux Leather leggings or Camo leggings are selling like hotcakes for a reason! You feel great and you look great!
