Happy Friday! As most of you know I'm a huge fan of Werkshop. I've only tried their triathlon leggings and haven't purchased their athleisure leggings until their Black Friday sale. I'm a size small in their triathlon leggings and wasn't sure if I would prefer the size xs or small since Tina Z says there is no need to size up in these. I bought both to try.
For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms. In Werkshop triathlon leggings I fit a size small.
Jackalope Size Small
(my tummy is all scratched up from Neko. Totally accidental.)
First thing I need to mention- the artwork on the Jackalope is so DOPE! Seriously amazing artwork. I fell in love with these at first sight. This pair is a size small and I think this is the right size for me in the athleisure leggings. Honestly, there isn't much difference between the xs and the small. The small feels like my Lululemon Align bottoms. The XS felt more hugged like the Wunder Unders. I would say it's personal preference because they both fit.
These are high waisted and hit slightly above my belly button.
As of now the athleisure leggings only come in full length, which is a bummer if you're petite like me. They are looooong. I'm okay with that and I have worn them out with them folded under and it's fine. The Jackalope really makes my bum look great. 👀
One thing I'd like to point out that may be a deal breaker for some of you- these do not have a gusset. Which means you do have to wear underthings to prevent some camel toe. Honestly it's not a big deal for me, but it may be for others.
I couldn't decide if I liked the Gothica Mash Up. In theory I love the raven print and I love the moth print. But together it didn't look as amazing as I thought it would. Actually let me rephrase that. The back of the leggings look great. The front, not so much.
Gothica Mash Up Size XS
Is it just me that I think the backside looks better than the front view? I think the moon kind of throws off the symmetry. Also there aren't many similarities between a raven and a moth besides that they both have wings and fly. I wasn't quite sold.
If Werkshop ever releases the raven and moth separately in their athleisure leggings I will totally buy them. They are super comfortable and basically feel like I'm not wearing anything! I will admit the xs did feel a little tighter in the calves leading down the ankles but not enough visually to make a difference.
I ended up returning the Gothica Mash Up and exchanging them for a solid black pair. I definitely hope to see new releases in their athleisure leggings because I think I'm obsessed. I prefer them over the triathlon leggings for sure. If you're thinking about getting a pair, do it! I don't think you'll regret it.
Do you already own a pair? What do you think? Triathlon or Athleisure? Which do you like more?
