Since I got back on the workout train last December, I have been working on increasing my collection of leggings. Having amassed quite the selection of black reversible Lululemon leggings with the basic black and patterned waistband options, I decidedly skipped Lululemon entirely and shopped other brands. I passed on another pair of from the Beyond Yoga x Kate Spade collaboration, as they did not hold up the way I wished.
Enter Alo. I was skeptical that the 34″ inseam that the item description cited was a typo. I was pleasantly surprised that the 34″ inseam was spot on, with the potential for the leggings to stretch further. The rise on these leggings is higher than the rise on the standard Lululemon Wunder Under. This style fits true to size.
I purchased two pairs in this style. I have worn each once a week since the end of December to either barre, yoga, and namaste + tone. The waistbands in each pair stay in place while going through a vinyasa flow. There is no inching downwards. Perhaps most crucial is that neither pair are see-through in down dog. Especially, when there is a mirror at the back of the class, opaque fabric on the backside is key.
With multiple solid and print combinations, these leggings are a no-brainer for the tall girl whether she is sporting these to the studio or to brunch.
