Fit Rebel is a company that features traditional batik art on their leggings. Each design is hand painted and drawn by artists from Malaysia. When Fit Rebel reached out to me, I was instantly drawn to the Edgy Peacock leggings on their website.
*Disclaimer: These leggings are gifted to me from Fit Rebel in exchange for an honest review.
The intense colors on this beautifully painted peacock are breath taking in real life. I really love the blues, greens and yellows used on this piece. As someone who appreciates and studied the arts in college, I naturally gravitate towards pieces like these. It totally reminds me of this Oscar Wilde quote, "One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art."
The fabric is super buttery and soft. It sort of reminds me of a softer and more stretchy version of Lululemon's nulux fabric. There is almost no compression to these leggings. I'm wearing a size small. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and normally wear a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms or size Petite XS in Athleta bottoms. If you're smaller than I am, you may be sized out.
The only one thing I'm not too crazy about is the crotch seam. Normally I would reject a pair of leggings for a contrasting seam at my crotch but the unique artwork and colors over rode this. I made an exception in this case. Plus, if it really bothers me I can always wear a longer tank that can hide the seam.
These sit right beneath my belly button. I would consider them to be on the hi-rise side even though on the website these are labeled regular rise. The wide waist band is very comfortable and I'm happy that it doesn't give me a muffin top. During the bend over test, these passed with flying colors. It would also be difficult to see-through given how colorful these leggings are.
Length wise, they are a little bit too long on me, but I don't think they look too bad since they are only slightly loose at the ankles. Seriously, how awesome is this peacock? I admit, I do love crazy bottoms and usually wear them with a basic top to balance it out. Peacock not your thing? They also have Fighting Fish, Dragonfly and Phoenix are just some of my other favorites from this line.
I've already worn these twice to work out in. I did circuit training for the first workout session and a cardio workout the second time I wore them. They performed beautifully. I did not have to pull them up at any point, nor did the waistband roll down. I found them to be very comfortable to wear. One day when I'm feeling extra happy, I would like to wear these out and about for errands on a weekend.
If you're a Werkshop fan like I am, these may be right up your alley. The best thing about these leggings is how affordable they are. They only cost $44.83 USD! Shipping and exchanges are free worldwide from Malaysia. Ship time can be a couple of weeks.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
