Love these Leggings #holidaygiftguide #contest


When I was a kid, I lived in leggings. Like, every single day. I had leggings in every different colour and wore them with my favourite long tunics and that little plastic circle doodad that you looped your shirt into. You know what I mean, '80s child. Flash forward 20+ years later and while leggings are back "in", my body has changed, more than slightly. Plus, the WAY we're supposed to wear leggings has changed, too.
Here are my legging rules:
  • Leggings are not pants, so don't expose your butt;
  • Make sure your leggings are not see-through (this is especially important if you break rule #1)
  • Leggings need to be taut, but not too tight
A few months ago, I met Antonella, who runs My Legwear Shop. She assured me she could find the PERFECT leggings for me (I was explicit with my height and muscular leg concerns -- HA! -- finding flattering leggings is not an easy feat.) 

My Legwear Shop has so many different styles and fabrics, patterns and prints -- all available for purchase online. The shop also sells pantyhose and children's leggings, in adorable patterns. Some kids' styles even match the adult ones -- I LOVE THIS. Twinning!

Antonella hooked me up with a pair of Lonnie leggings, made by Slymwear. These leggings are a beautiful dark black that doesn't fade -- they are made with a blend of nylon and spandex jersey. You can wear them out and about, or to the gym, or both. They're stretchy and smooth and hug the body in all the right places. My favourite -- they're made in Canada. 

At $72.00, they are not the cheapest, but the quality is there -- you won't be buying many pairs of thin, see-through pairs only to replace them a few washes later when they fall apart. I literally wear these pants as soon as they come out of the laundry every single week. So, I played it safe with the black, but seeing as these are my new favourite leggings, I think it's time to branch out of my comfort zone and try a more bold look?

These Lonnie pants would make an excellent gift for the woman on your list who enjoys a little comfort, but still likes to look good and put together. Wearing leggings doesn't mean you need to look like a slob! Of course, there are many other options, too. High waisted, bamboo, jegging and more. 

Luckily, Simply Suppa readers have a chance to WIN a pair, just in time for the holidays!

It is like magic material of workout clothing it doesn't stick to me nor is it too hot it is just PERFECTION!
