Fit Review Friday! Athleta High Rise Powerful Gleam Tight & High Rise Serpent Chaturanga Tight

As much as I love colorful prints, every girl needs a pair of black leggings. As a general rule if I'm buying black leggings, I try and stay away from solid black leggings. A nice textural print like the one Athleta has right now is totally cool, at least in my book. It gives it a slight edge that can easily transition from workout to street wear. Pair if with knee high boots or a pair of booties and you're good to go.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically wear a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms and size PXS in Athleta bottoms.

Even though these are high rise, I find them to be very comfortable and sit right under my belly button. I've already worn these a bunch of times to workout and to wear casually and they really go with anything. 

 I think these are super figure flattering and the length fits my petite frame so well.  They have just the right amount of slouch that makes them look really good.

 These are opaque on me through the bend test. I find them to be very slightly compressive, so they're very comfortable to wear. I highly recommend these!

 Next up we have the Powerful Gleam Tights. Ever since I returned the Alo Yoga Moto Leggings which you can read my review of them here, I've been on the search for a similar pair that would fit my petite legs. I have finally found them!

The seams do not cut across my knee which is why I returned the Alo Yoga pair. The last seam sits a good inch above my knee, so these are very petite friendly.

 These photos show the mesh and side panels on the legs. I think it does work well with the style.  This is definitely more street wear than anything else. I don't think I would workout in these? But maybe!

These are also high rise, but they sit right underneath my belly button. Also super comfortable and opaque during the bend test.

The length is fine on my short inseam. The inseam is 25.5 inches and no bagginess around the ankles either. 

 I'm happy to report I ended up keeping both pairs and have worn them a few times already. Definitely recommend the petite sizing from Athleta. If you're new to Athleta you can receive $15 off your first order with my referral link.

 Hope everyone has a great weekend!



  1. Wow both of these leggings really show off your assets!! Great finds!

  2. Ooooh i love those moto dupe!! I went down straight to Athleta but these are back ordered. I had ordered huge orders from their sales and they are coming. Oh crap my ban island..... well, maybe in my next life...

    1. I'm doing really well on my ban! And only 3 more days. This is by far the easiest ban I've had in many years. I think I may try another ban later this year around June or July. It depends if I really end up dropping Lulu and shopping elsewhere.
