Love Leggings Focus Cropped Mulberry Plum Sports Leggings Review


Reviewed by New_Mama

I regularly wear sports leggings both for exercise and more recently also as lounge wear for comfort, and have tried a variety of brands from the well known expensive makes to the cheap and cheerful which are never worth it. I was therefore keen to try a new brand I had not come across- Love Leggings.

The leggings sent were the ‘focus cropped mulberry plum sports leggings’ and I was pleased to be chosen to review a cropped version as with summer approaching I find this a necessity when completing a workout. The leggings arrived in a recyclable transparent bag. I was of course pleased to note the eco friendly nature of this and lack of unnecessary packaging. The design is simple with a block colour and clear LL brand logo on the back of the waist. Immediately the colour of the leggings really stood out to me, a vibrant plum colour named ‘mulberry plum.’ I already own a pair of plum coloured leggings (from one of the more expensive high street sports brands) and I personally feel the vibrancy of these was actually even better and certainly something I would be drawn to when looking at options to purchase. This style of leggings also comes in three other colours (midnight black, dusty pink, and olive green) and is available in 12 sizes from 6 to 28. The huge range of sizes in this brand is great to see, allowing all shapes and sizes to buy decent sportswear. When ordering my size I used their size guide on the website and based my order on the measurements provided. When I tried them on I did feel perhaps I could have gone a size lower as they didn’t feel as fitted as I would have expected. I was therefore a little unsure how they may fair during one of my favourite high intensity HIIT workouts. However, also noted as I tried them on, was the luxurious feel of the shiny fabric which felt like it glided on and certainly felt nice to wear. Whilst the material is fairly thin and skin-tight, as you would want, they were definitely not see through as unfortunately I have experienced before. The waist of the leggings is most definitely high waisted (and positively more so than a lot of other high waisted leggings that I have tried) and creates a great shape whilst feeling like it holds everything in!

I first tried the leggings for some yoga style stretching and found them to be perfectly suitable for this. Comfortable and easy to wear I couldn’t fault them for this activity. Next up was a high intensity workout video. In the first few exercises which included running on the spot I did find that the leggings slipped down to my hips. However I am not sure if this is due to the sizing which I mentioned before as perhaps seeming a little big. I did find that as the workout progressed ( as you’d expect the sweating started), the leggings became more secure and I had no further slipping issues over the next 20 minutes.

I have only had these just under a week so I have yet to test them through regular washing so I hope that they last.

I would recommend these leggings as a good summer fashion option and would consider this brand in the future should I need to purchase other leggings as I feel that they are pretty good value for money. From a browse on their website Love Leggings also offer several other styles as well as maternity, curve, tall, petite and children’s ranges. Free next day delivery is also an option currently on your first purchase (via a pop up when you visit the website).

I would give this product a rating of 4 out of 5.
