Soo comfy and thick (not see through thank god, as I'm sure we've all experienced lol)
A lovely colour and I just love the heat pack pouch so much! I think I could maybe do without the back ones as it frustrates me that they don't go flat hahaha (OCD) and the heat pads don't really fit.
Other than that, I cannot fault them!
I've had to get up to size 20 before but the 16-18 fit me amazing and I appreciate the bit to take the waist band in!!
I'm living in these, glad I got them on sale! My favourite leggings 100%!
These were my first purchase with this company. I've been wearing leggings during my periods for a while for comfort and since trying these I will be wearing nothing else. The fit feels like a second skin, they aren't tight or heavy feeling but they aren't loose either. I have fibromyalgia and have never found that balance. I wore them for about 3 days straight because I was so comfy and didn't get that baggy feeling you tend to get with leggings when you've worn them more than once. The pockets for heat packs are perfectly placed. I also have endometriosis and reoccurring kidney stones and these leggings will help keep me comfortable for my worst days. I cannot give these anymore praise. Because of the heat packs I was able to cook myself dinner while on a period and I'm normally bed bound because of how bad the cramping and nausea gets. Everyone who is thinking about these needs to try them because they helped me just feel "normal" and they are so discreet, no-one would know you were wearing something different. The adjustable waistband was comfortable for normal tum and full period bloat tum and the fabric is just incredibly soft and luxurious. Before purchase I was shocked by the pice but having worn them, felt the quality and experienced how much they helped I would say they are worth it.
These were my third pair of leggings! I'm usually a 16 in trousers, so for my first pairs I ordered16-18 which were a tiny bit big (not just around the waist, they bunch on the leg) but not too big that I can't wear them... but I decided to order a 12-14 in these, and they're great! They're great with or without the heat pack! I was so sick of wearing clothes that hurt!
The back pockets are a very tight fit, which I can totally understand why, so that the heat pack doesn't move around too much - but it just means they're less discrete, which does not bother me at all.
The adjustable waist band is a fantastic idea too - I would love to see this waistband with some different leg styles like flare or boot cut - or even shorts!
Worth every penny.
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.
