While I love wearing leggings, I don’t always love the way my legs look in them. I have short, muscular legs that look less than ideal when wearing certain styles of leggings. I love my traditional Spanx (this is the pair I wear) that I wear under slim fitting dresses and pants, but have never branched out to try any of their other clothing items. I had read reviews on the faux leather leggings and how they were the most flattering and slimming ones out there. So I ordered a pair to see if the hype was real. I prefer to go up a size in my leggings so I purchased a M, and from the first moment that I put them on I was amazed what they did to my legs. It instantly pulls everything in, slims the hips and thighs and has a super high waist that makes them very comfortable to wear. And as I have heard it described by other people, there is no issue with “leggings crotch” with these. Ugh. That’s another reason why I stay away from many brands is because they are so unflattering in that area. This is NOT the case with this pair and while I still won’t wear leggings with a shirt that doesn’t cover my bum, I certainly could. If you have not yet snagged yourself a pair of these leggings, I would highly recommend trying them!
