Lululemon Water Drop Leggings Review
Lululemon has long been one of the premier activewear brands, even before athleisure became trendy or Instagram fitspo was an official hashtag. Their Canadian-based direct-to-consumer yoga athletic apparel company is known for their stretch fabrics with built-in hugging that are designed to hug curves. Plus, their leggings come equipped with sweat-wicking fabric designed to keep you cool, dry and comfortable during even your toughest workouts!
Reasons abound as to why many of our testers love our brand’s best workout leggings, especially the water drop leggings, particularly amongst our female testers. These tights combine comfort and functionality beautifully, boasting an elegant high-waisted cut with soft ribbed texture for added structure and held-in feel; also featuring innovative moisture-managing and odor-fighting fabric treated with silver to protect against UV rays as well as being chlorine/saltwater proof!
Leggings from Water Drop come in an assortment of colors – from classic black to vibrant bronze green – and hold their shape well over repeated washes and wears; minimal shrinkage was observed during lab evaluations and no pilling occurred when worn multiple times per week. Plus, their water drop leggings come in sizes XS to 6XL as well as three length options of 25″, 28″, and 31″.
Leggings from this company are designed to be opaque, meaning they won’t show through when you bend or move. As with all exercise apparel purchases, we advise trying on several pairs before buying to ensure they suit both you and your fitness regimen. If you need assistance choosing leggings to suit your workouts, the brand provides a helpful feature on their website which matches workouts to specific properties and fabrics of leggings. Lululemon’s Instill and Swift Speed leggings are great choices for running due to being constructed using SmoothCover and Luxtreme fabrics, respectively. Meanwhile, All the Right Places High-Rise Drawcord Waist Crop provides compression in key areas such as abs, hips, butt and thighs, making it suitable for high intensity workouts like cycling and HIIT.
Nulu leggings offer gentler compression for those seeking something lighter; lightweight yet comfortable with matte finishes to provide optimal comfort during working from home, running errands or attending gym (these also include some level of tummy control). Plus they’re one of our more economical workout leggings!
Our testers report that lululemon leggings tend to run true to size; however, some recommend sizing up in more compressive fabrics like Luxtreme and Everlux. We suggest checking the brand’s size chart or scheduling a video chat with one of their educators for assistance determining the ideal size.
