I have been looking for the perfect legging – it has to be higher waisted, fit snuggly and not get saggy after wearing. Leggings are everywhere this season so I spent the day trying on various pairs – my criteria was they had to be black and basic (I already have the perfect faux leather pair). I found two great products. The first was from WHBM that you can find here. The main reasons I loved this legging is because it is high waisted and a great weight. It is thicker and the fabric has a great stretch which is slimming and comfortable. I recently did a shopping tour of Yorkdale for a contest winner and the woman I was leading throughout the centre asked me about leggings. I promptly brought her to WHBM and she bought those leggings because of the reasons I just stated. If you click the link above and read the reviews by other customers you’ll see why this is such a popular pant. The second legging I loved and the ones I am wearing is this pair from Chico’s, the Raleigh Legging found here. It sits below the natural waist and the fabric has this luxury feel about it. The weather in Toronto has been neurotic – cold one day warm the other. These leggings are the perfect transition from spring/fall/winter…honestly I don’t know what is going on but I do know I love these leggings and am glad I got them.
Just remember that leggings are NOT pants. Wear a longer top with them, I don’t want to see the waist band. A great rule of thumb is that the top cover the bum.
Anyone else have a story about the perfect legging?
