Fabletics , What Would I Do Without Your Leggings?
I never was one to wear leggings and for a long time believed “leggings are not pants, ” thanks to Blair Waldorf (Who watches Gossip Girl?!). Maybe it was because I never found a pair of leggings that fit well or maybe it was because I just wasn’t that into active wear, but in the last couple of years, I’ve really started expanding my wardrobe and style to encompass sneakers, leggings, and athleisure style in general because comfort and style should most definitely go hand in hand!
What I Love About Fabletics
What do you look for in a good pair of leggings? For me personally, it’s really important that the leggings are supportive and are NOT see through. There’s nothing I hate more than see through leggings and I think this is why I avoided them for so long. Also, being 5’3″ I could never find leggings that were a good length on me. Cropped leggings were much too short, but regular length always ended up bunching around the ankles–another look I just can’t stand! But then I found Fabletics!
I discovered Fabletics a few years ago and they always seems to have a deal going on with their leggings, so I was fortunate enough to get my first 2 pairs for $24. I figured at that price point, even if I didn’t love them, it wasn’t like they were breaking the bank or anything, so I had nothing to lose. When I finally received my first package, I fell in love! Not only are the leggings extremely opaque, but they also feature maximum compression to keep everything looking smooth and sleek with NO JIGGLING!! Best part of all is that they come in a “short” inseam that’s perfect for my petite frame. All my problems and issues with leggings were finally resolved and I’ve been wearing Fabletics leggings ever since!
My Fabletics Favorites
The first pairs of leggings I got from Fabletics were the Salar Powerhold Leggings (for reference, I am an XXS Short). The Salar Leggings are mid-waisted and come in full, short, long, and 7/8 inseams. The mid waist is extremely flattering and of course the leggings feature that high compression that I’ve grown to love.
I recently also tried the Fabletics High Waisted Powerhold 7/8 Leggings and I love them even more than the Salar leggings!! The rise on these go a little higher, above the bellybutton for me, and really hold everything in with the same maximum compression as the Salar legging. I got the 7/8 length because the High Waist Powerhold leggings don’t come in short inseams, but as you can see from my outfit photos above, these 7/8 length are pretty much full length for me.
Whether you love prints or solids, need a whole outfit or just mix and match pieces, Fabletics has it all! Let me know in the comments where you’ve found the best activewear!
