15 Things to know before you buy Lularoe Leggings (from a non-consultant)

15 Things to know before you buy Lularoe Leggings (from a non-consultant)

If you’ve been considering purchasing some Lularoe leggings but aren’t sure you want to pull the trigger just yet, I thought I’d take some time to tell you my thoughts on these. I’m not affiliated with Lularoe, and I don’t sell their clothing. I do love their leggings, but there are a few things you should know before you invest in them. These are just my honest opinions!

  1. Yes, they really are “buttery soft”.
  2. Their leggings are not made in the US, if that’s important to you (although other clothes of theirs are made in one of their 50 US manufacturing plants).
  3. Depending on where they’re made (and material), some leggings have been claimed toย fit differently.
  4. They only make a certain number of leggings (and all clothes) in one print. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
  5. There’s only 2 sizes. One Size (OS) and Tall & Curvy (TC). One Size apparently fits up to size 12, but depending on the material, in my experience, if you’re a 12, you might be more comfy in the TC size. If you’re nervous about the size, size up to TC. You’ll be more comfortable.
  6. They’re not durable. Let’s be truthful here. I wrote a post about how I got a hole in my Lularoe leggings DAY TWO of receiving them, and it wasn’t like I was hiking out in the woods.
  7. They need special treatment when you’re washing them (Inside out, like colors, air dry!).
  8. If your thighs rub together, your leggings will likely have pilling in the crotch after a while (Again. Let’s be honest. My legs rub together and I’ve noticed some slight pilling in my favorite pairs).
  9. Leggings are $25. I think this is pretty expensive considering that they’re not super durable, but some of the prints are so cute that I can’t resist.
  10. Leggings that are considered “unicorns” can be MUCH more expensive. Want those donut prints? It’s going to cost you $45+. Trust me. I know. Because I bought them. They’re in the picture in this post. (How could I not have DONUT LEGGINGS?! Plus I was able to get a pair for my daughter so we can match!! ….when she turns 2 haha!) Probably a dumb purchase but I couldn’t resist!
  11. If you’re wearing a top that doesn’t cover your butt, wear boy shorts or a thong for underwear because you’ll see your panty line. Just my own observation. Sometimes that doesn’t matter to me, but other times, it does!
  12. They’re not necessarily see-through, but I don’t ever wear them without my top covering my butt. Plus I have cellulite and I don’t want my butt-dimples on display everywhere.
  13. They’re warm, but if you live up North or somewhere that it gets pretty cold, you’ll want something else on your legs!
  14. Facebook groups are the way to go with finding prints you want or need. Email me if you want some suggestions…I’m not going to publicly give my opinions here on that.
  15. Mercari is also a great place to find and sell your Lularoe. I’ve used this app on my phone for a while now. Haven’t heard of Mercari? It’s basically just a garage sale app on your phone. You can find it here, and if you want $2 (and I’ll also get $2), use my code: RSGQAJ.

Pretty much the best leggings print ever.

I hope this info might be helpful to you! Overall, I still love these leggings because they’re so comfy. I’m not much into the crazy prints (unless it has food on it, because I love all of those. So far I have pizzas and donuts…) but so many of the prints are happy and colorful, and look great with solid print tops. They’re really not too much of a hassle to wash, but I’d say the biggest drawbacks are the price and the durability. You should definitely not consider doing any kind of hiking or other in-contact activities while wearing these. Of course, as a mom, you’re always playing some kind of contact sport right?! Or at least I feel like I am! Don’t live in fear, but just know that these aren’t heavy-duty, and you might want to consider another brand if you’re always on your hands and knees, or running around the playground where something might snag your pretty prints!

Enjoy your leggings, and if you have any other brand you love, share it!!

      Aww thanks so much for the sweet comment!!! Overall I really do love them and will most definitely keep buying prints I like! But definitely some downsides in my own honest opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ Not everything is cupcakes and rainbows, right?! hehe

    I love lularoe! I agree though, they’re expensive and as a fellow thigh rubber, I have the pilling too.

    I’m confused when I enter the giveaway. After I put my email in, I get a giant list of stuff. And one I picked about leaving a blog comment brought me to another website. I’m on my phone, so could this be it?

      Hey Risa!! So since it’s a bunch of bloggers, each one entered a criteria for the raffle- if it says blog comment and takes you to another blog and post, that would be where you comment and enter! ๐Ÿ˜€

    These things are really helpful. I haven’t gotten myself to buy one but have been considering it for the longest time because of all the buzz about it. I had so much fun reading about it too!
