Affordable workout leggings review

Happy Friday, ladies! Hope your week is going well. Today, I am going to review 2 pair of workout leggings for you. One pair is a keeper and the other one I already sent back. Let's start with the one I love. I stopped by Forever 21 last week to look for some new sport bras. Now that I work out 5 days a week, I'd like to have some extra ones. If you haven't tried Forever 21 sports bras, the quality is actually pretty decent considering how inexpensive they are. While browsing in store, these leggings caught my attention. First of all, the color is absolutely stunning. A few things I keep in mind when shopping for workout clothes. # 1 - I will not buy black workout leggings. They're just too boring. I need something bright and cheerful to motivate me. # 2 - I will not buy printed workout leggings. To me, they look like something strictly for the gym. I wanted something that I can wear outside the gym as well. # 3 - I only buy either workout shorts or full-length leggings. Capri-length does not work for me. As soon as I tried these on, I knew they're coming home with me. These are seamless leggings made from a thick knit material (which I am obsessed with at the moment). They feel so nice and fit extremely well on my body shape. They're high-waisted, keep me supported in all the right places and at 26", the inseam is perfect on me. They're totally squat-proof. Because the color is darker, they hide sweat marks well. I love the ribbed panels along the sides. Wore these leggings to my Orange Theory class and a few girls came up and asked me where I got them from. They're only $14.95. I'd gladly pay double for them. If you're in the market for a new pair of workout leggings, get these. I promise you won't be disappointed. I am patiently waiting for the charcoal one to come back in stock so I can get them too. I also picked up this little cropped top while I was there. Nothing to rave about. I needed a little more coverage at the gym and it does the job. It's cute and functional.

I ordered these leggings 2 weeks ago because I am so obsessed with my first pair of ombre leggings (full review here). I wanted a pair that isn't so in your face. After spending quite a bit of time reading reviews on Amazon, I decided to give this pair a try. I also ordered the matching sports bra. Again, considering how inexpensive they are, the quality is really nice. They're even thicker than my first pair. Completely squat-proof. The material is identical to the first one and they are extremely comfortable. I sent them back because they're too big in the waist. They did not hold me in (about an inch bigger than my previous pair). They're not bad for the price but since they're not perfect, I know I am not going to reach for them. As for the sports bra, I would say they provide light to medium support. They are best for yoga, weight training or walking. They would not provide enough support to do high intensity workouts. I wanted a matching set. Since the leggings didn't work out for me, I decided to return the sports bra as well. Hope you find this post helpful. I have another workout clothes review next week (slightly more expensive). Stay tuned =)
