Werkshop Review! Full Length Purple Scales!

I've been eyeing these Purple Scales Werkshop Leggings for a couple of months.  When I was finally ready to buy them in June my size was out of stock.  Patience is key with Werkshop.  Many times size small will be sold out, but if you wait a month or two they always restock.  Last week when I checked and saw my size, I jumped on them.  I own 5 other pairs of Werkshop leggings but they are all crop length.  This is my first full length legging from Werkshop.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and usually a size 4 in Lululemon Wunder Unders.

One of the best things about buying from Werkshop is their consistency with sizes.  I'm a size small and these fit exactly like my other Werkshop crops.  

I see a lot of people doing yoga with the bottoms folded over their feet and I don't know if I would ever do that myself, but I'm just showing how long these can be on my short frame.  

If you notice they are a little baggy around my knees but I don't think it's a major issue.  It's because my knees are hitting higher up where it's still supposed to be thigh area.  If I went down to an XS they would be too tight around my waist.

I always find the rise super comfortable.  These hit just below my belly button.  The waist band is nice and wide.  

Please excuse my bony feet.  I just want to show that the length of these are definitely scrunched up but I don't think it's too bad.  If anything these are definitely hem-able.  As of right now I still have the tags attached but I'm definitely leaning towards keeping them.  

I think the color is amazing and I think they do look great!  The color may be a little hard to match, but I'm wearing these with my heathered slate cool racerback.  I think these would also look good with white, black, dark purple and lilac colored tops.  Light pink might even work.  

Now the website does not include the length of their leggings.  I'm not sure why, but I think if they did it would help immensely.  The length of the full length legging is 28.5 inches.  The length of the crop is 20.5 inches.  That's a huge difference.  

These also come in two other colors.  Teal Scales and Gold Scales.  As of right now all sizes are in stock.  I'm also eyeing the Angler leggings.  They come in crop and full length.  Now that I know I can pull off the full length version I'm leaning towards that for the Angler version.  Also on my wish list is the Dragonflies.

  1. Thank you for the review. They look great on you!! You are killing me with all of these gorgeous werkshop leggings!! I totally have been wanting multiple pairs. My favorites are ghost's Galaxy, butterflies and jellyfish. All of which you have. What design do you wear the most out of those? I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Ps. I also need to offload a ton of Lululemon a mix of rare, NWT and gently used. where do you sell yours? Thank you for your time!

    1. My top three are Jellyfish, Tentacles and Circus Girl. Those are the three I go for most. The Jellyfish is a total stunner!
      I usually offload my Lulu on eBay. There's also a Facebook group that I joined, but I'm not really active on FB so I haven't actually posted anything for sale, but once in a while I'll look to see what's for sale.

      It's a private group though so you have to get approved to join. I hope that link works.

    2. Thank you for your thoughts. I appreciate the info on selling with link. The jelly fish do look stunning!

    3. If you get a pair, let me know what you think!
