If you follow me on social media you’ll see that I wear lots of leggings. People often buy me leggings as gifts because of how often I wear them. I’m not saying I’m an expert on leggings, but I would say I know a lot about leggings that I can say without a doubt that the leggings I’m writing about are the best leggings I have ever purchased. Let me give you a little background on my experiences with leggings. If you’re like me who wears clothing until it falls apart, then you’ll know how easy it is to create holes in your leggings especially if the company you bought them from has poorly made leggings. I once bought a pair of zebra leggings that fell apart the same day I bought them, but they were $4 so no harm done. I bought 3 pairs of leggings for $6 from a store that ended up going out of business shortly after I bought them. I still wear them around the house because of all the holes, but they are very sheer and you can practically see through them. As a general rule, you should expect to pay at least $15 for semi-decent leggings. I have a weird fashion sense, so I love wearing print leggings even if it means I look crazy in public.
The leggings seen above are from a company called The Skullection and I found them on Instagram. I jokingly asked if they would send me a free pair to advertise for their company and they sent me a link for their affiliate program. I figured it was a no-brainer since I already wear leggings all the time and people are always saying how much they love my leggings. Everyone knows I love a deal, so I waited until they had a sale and I got $80 leggings for $40 plus shipping and tax. Now I know what you’re thinking: $80 for a pair of leggings?! That’s insane! Allow me to explain why it’s worth it.
1. They are very durable and tough
Out of all the leggings I’ve ever bought, these are practically indestructible. I wasn’t planning on testing exactly how durable they were, but my cat decided differently. He was sitting on my lap when something scared him and he ended scratching my leg. I was wearing the pants at the time, and at first, I was so upset because I thought he had messed them up the first time I had ever worn them. After the panic subsided, I took a look at my leg and I had 5 little marks where his claws broke the skin. Ironically, the pants only had one tiny mark that you can barely see unless you know it’s there or you’re looking at it close up.
Here is a picture of my leg to show the damage to my leg, and I was in shock that the pants were still intact. Based on past purchases, I was fully prepared for them to fall apart and there was hardly a scratch on them. That right there is worth it in my book, but in case you’re not sold yet, I’ll keep going.
2. They are relatively expensive leggings, but not by much
I say relative because most people cannot afford $80 leggings. Hell, I can barely afford $80 leggings that’s why I bought them on sale. If you buy clothes often you’ll know that $80 is nothing compared to the price of a pair of pants or jeans at the mall. They might be a little more than the leggings you’re used to buying but I can assure you that you will want to wear these every single day. After doing some research online, I noticed that they are only slightly more expensive than other online legging sources like Lularoe or Fabulegs. If you recall, Lularoe is facing a lawsuit that claims that the quality of the product does not match the price they are charging. It may cost you a little more now, but it’s an investment worth making.
3. Ease of Comfort
I accidentally fell asleep wearing these and didn’t even realize it until the next morning. Just the other day, I feel asleep wearing another pair of leggings from somewhere else and I had to wake up and change because they were so uncomfortable. They fit so well on my body that sometimes I don’t even want to take them off.
I have worn some leggings that when it gets hot it makes my legs sweaty and the leggings become uncomfortable to wear. I wore these leggings to a party outside and I never had an issue with them. I live in Texas and I bought them about 2 weeks ago when it started to REALLY get hot, just to give you some context on the kind of environment I’m in. Every time I leave the house, I get at least 3 compliments on my pants. Before I would get one every now and then. Everyone just loves these leggings!
