GET LOW! GET LOW!


You all on Instagram had asked for me to show you MY favorite brands of LOW RISE leggings, so I did some research and found 5 that I think you should know about and maybe you hint to Santa you've been a fit chick all year and need these to show off your hard work in 2018! Either way, if you have a long torso and have been putting in the time to tone that tummy, these are for you! (Don't worry my High-waisted fans, there is a blog coming for you too!)


THE "BASIC B".

1. ) HARD TAIL LOW RISE ANKLE YOGA LEGGINGS

WHY I LOVE THEM: Every fit chic needs a 'basic' pair of black low rise leggings and these are

S-I-M-P-L-E, no fuss, no pockets, chic, slim and super soft.

SIZE INCLUSIVE FRIENDS, the equivalent of HARD TAIL would be the WOMEN'S FREEDOM LEGGING- C9 CHAMPION.

WHY I LOVE THEM: They have 17 different sizes! Yes, you heard me. Whether you are 5'2" or 5'10"+, there is a length for everyone too!


CRISS-CROSS

2.) BEYOND YOGA EAST BOUND LEGGINGS

WHY I LOVE THEM: These leggings are super fierce for you ladies that have put in some work on that CORE. Drama! Drama! Drama! with the waistband that draws your eye to the center of your waist, creating an even more flattering optical illusion. And who doesn't love that?


SIZE INCLUSIVE, would be the JORDANA LEGGING BY FABLETICS from the Demi Lovato collection.

WHY I LOVE THEM: But before you DM me because their description says "High Waisted", you can adjust those straps to sit wherever you feel more comfortable and that is a WIN! WIN! for me! Katrina from 80 Day Obsession cast can be seen wearing the short version of this style and we didn't even pull up the straps.


COLOR ME FIT & FABULOUS

3.) LINO FITNESS WOMEN'S LOW RISE PRINTED CAPRI

WHY I LOVE THEM: It's important to add some color/pattern/print to your activewear ensemble! Who doesn't love to make a splash in a vibrant pink. Style Tip: Use the bold color as an accent and keep the shoes and top neutral (Neutrals include: Black, White, Grey, Navy Blue)


SIZE INCLUSIVE, RAINBEAU LEGGING

WHY I LOVE THEM: This brand is one to watch in the so-called "plus-size" market. I hate that word ladies and I will try my hardest to not use it. If you are a Size 12 or up, you need to get some gear from this company. They know fashion-forward and are making breakthroughs in the industry that wants to only put you in leopard and zebra print (Yuk!)


SHEER GENIUS.

4.) ACTIVE MESH PANEL LEGGING- FOREVER 21

WHY I LOVE THEM: Well, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways, or let me count my cash, because I can get a few pairs of these with no stress at all. These come in under $20! But the mesh detail is definitely edgy which is something I love!


SIZE INCLUSIVE, SHEER MESH PANEL LEGGING

WHY I LOVE THEM: Just a sliver of sheer mesh is SEXY and if you are SEXY & you SHOULD know it by now, then have some fun with showing a little thigh!

POLLY POCKET.

5.) FULL LENGTH LEGGING COLOR BLOCKED WITH SIDE POCKET

WHY I LOVE THEM: As a designer of activewear myself, I love to look at the construction details and these Waist Angel leggings have some very nice upgrades. Love the shape of the waist, the yoke in the back (it's cut to flatter and make you look your best on your backside) And these contrasting side pockets make it so convenient to stash your phone when you are lifting, running, jumping, squatting!

SIZE INCLUSIVE, Get the same look with the TWO TONE WITH SIDE POCKET LEGGING

WHY I LOVE THEM: With a slight homage to the 80's trend of those fluorescent running shorts that we all had a pair of (don't lie! ok maybe your older sister or mom had a pair) Fun meets functional!
