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.
First of all thank you so much for making these. The waist is a DREAM. The material of leggings themselves could be improved I think and possibly a bit softer? I got my usual size and they are far too big so I'm going to order the smaller pair and hope they fit as I can't afford to keep trying. All in all amazing idea that works... Needs a little fine tuning. I really want to try the jeans but the sizing concerns me.
Leggings are fab for a flare up. Just love the fact they can be tightened!
Only thing is I definitely should have sized down. I’m normally a 12 but because I’m so tall and the bloat is real I went for the 12-14 over the 10-12 - they are just a bit big without a bloat and need them really tightened but still comfy just a little bit too baggy on the leg. The quality of the material is so amazing and warm!
Feeling bloated and stomach hurts so I changed out of my elasticated waist trousers and put on my leggings, much better! I ordered a size down from my usual size as I saw on other comments and they fit perfectly
I found that the lower part of the waistband is puckered, like bumpy, at the front. This tends to happen when the fabric is being stretched while being sewn. I was hoping that once I had them on it would smooth out but unfortunately it's really quite noticeable. Is this due to the pocket design? I had such high hopes for these but the bumps have put me off ordering another pair. I ordered my leggings last year and had no response to an email about it. Such a shame, great concept but poor execution.
These leggings are brilliant! They are so soft and comfortable, and fantastic for flare days!
I originally ordered a size that were much too big on me, but it was easy to return and reorder a better size. I would suggest sizing down if you are unsure!
Love these leggings!
