I got the Lucy Inner Light Skirted Leggings last week with their additional 30% sale. My first thought when opening the package was, "What the mesh?" The skirt is mesh people! And the website says nothing about that! Besides the surprise of the skirt being a fine mesh, I have to say that I do quite like them but the husband thinks they should be returned because the skirt is a little too "bootylicious" in his words. Here's my ratings:
Fit: I give these leggings a 8.5 for fit. The leggings are holdy-iny without restricting movement but the skirt is snug and hugs the hips, again without being restrictive since the fine mesh skirt has a stretch to it. The skirt is a nice length, it's on the shorter side which is good for my shorter legs. The only thing I wish these pants had was a higher waist.
Feel: The feel of these leggings are great. I'd probably give them a 9, The fabric is not buttery-soft, but soft enough to sink deep into postures, and I love how they have a hold-you-in feel without being compressive. As mentioned above, the skirt is mesh which threw me off at first, definitely not my choice of fabric, but it's not very noticeable and it is stretchy and moves with you.
Function: 9. Although I think these legging are intended for Yoga and Pilates, I'd wear these for other gym activities. I'm going to try running and maybe lifting in these leggings.
Check them out at Lucy, they're still on sale!
I love movement and habits that promote health and lifetime wellness. I also like stretchy pants, being outside and good-for-you food! Follow me on Instagram @DawnBrownCoaching for more frequent updates.
