I’m actually in love with my leggings. They arrived today and I tried them on and the material is super soft and comfy. Sizing is true match for me even has a little bit to tighten the waste band.
I was shocked when I opened it to see that it came with its own heat/cool pack which is amazing as well.
I definitely would recommend these for anyone that suffers with abdominal pains as it’s a good way to hide the heat source rather than carrying one round like I’ve been doing.
Yes people think £36 is a lot for these but for anyone that suffers like me appreciate the little details like the pouches to have heat packs in.
Will definitely be ordering more on payday of the different colours
I preordered these after they were recommended by a friend on Instagram who swore by them for bloating and abdomen pain. I waited over a month for delivery, although I guess this would change if you were just ordering them normally.
THEY ARE COMFY. They feel like leggings that I’ve had for ages, and with the v shaped waistband, there is no severe mark/tightness on my stomach.
The idea is genius, I have pmdd and will happily live with a hot water bottle or heat pack on my stomach for 2/3 weeks of the month. The subtle pocket is great for popping a heat pack in and doesn’t draw attention. (Another pro, it comes with a small heat pack).
The leggings aren’t seethrough at the bum, which tends to be an issue, however I can’t speak for other colours.
The sizing/fit is very off. I am at least a size 16 in trousers, but I read other reviews which said to size down. I am so so glad I did. I bought a 12-14 and they are still fairly loose considering they are leggings, which are usually skin tight. The material at my ankles is a bit loose too, I did try rolling them up, but it doesn’t sit right.
The side pockets/waist band. Towards the back of the hips, there are two side pockets which are designed for the small heat pack to go in(if you suffer from hip pain), these “pockets” feel more like regular pockets that have been sewed backwards. I initially thought they were normal pockets - but backwards - as I did not think the small heat pack would fit, it does just fit. Just. These “pockets” also make the waistband a bit bulky, and it prevents the leggings from lying totally flat along the waistband.
The cost. I totally understand that this is a business and they want to make a profit, but £40 for leggings and shipping just isn’t realistic, especially when there are still issues. The cost does not reflect the material, as they feel like general leggings I could purchase from a high store, which would cost half the price. I don’t feel that the pocket for the heat pack should cause the price to increase so much.
I’m really torn if I should buy another pair, the idea is so good for chronic pain sufferers/people who need the heat pack, and I am definitely feeling the benefit of not having to hide a heat pack under my normal clothes, but with the cost, I don’t feel it is value for money.
Thank you for your feedback Jay.
The back pockets are a 'just' fit size to ensure the pack doesn't move around whilst wearing them. the pocket material can be flattened after use to give a flatten fit.
The leggings are £36 that reflect the price of material, living wages and overheads. As a small business we don't have the luxury that high street store do for low production costs for high quantities. We also commit to as little as possible waste ensuring all material is used and any surplus stock is heavily reduced or donated to women's causes.
I hope that this gives a better insight into us as a brand.
