Fit Review! Werkshop Crane Full Length

I've done so many fit reviews on Werkshop lately but I know a lot of you wanted to see pictures of how the Crane leggings would look on a petite body, so here they are. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and usually take a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms.  I take a size small in Werkshop for a more casual fit.  These leggings are very compressive. Crane Full Length Size Small I originally purchased the Geisha full length, but they made me look short.  You can see my review of those here .  I exchanged them for Cranes.  I chose the full length over the crop because I wanted the full effect of the feathers.  The crop version cuts of some of the feathers off near the calves.   The colors are gorgeous.  They are mostly gray with a hint of blues and purples throughout.  The color scheme is beautiful.  I think the colors would look great for cold winter days and all throughout spring.  The fit on these is tight.  They are brand spanking new so the waist does give me a

Fit Review Friday! Werkshop Onyx Full Length

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm going to be pretty much out all day Friday so I'm posting this a little early.  I was super excited to receive my Onyx leggings from their new Polygon collection.  These can be worn to the gym and transition easily to casual wear after the gym.  I love when my workout clothes can be used for double duty! For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and usually a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms.  In Werkshop I fit a size small for a more casual fit. Onyx Full Length  Size Small As with all my other Werkshop leggings, the fit is exactly the same as my other pairs in size small.  I like that Werkshop is very consistent about their sizing.  This pair in Onyx definitely lengthens my legs.  My inseam is only 26 to 27 inches so I'll take all the help I can get.  These sit right below my belly button.  Very fitted throughout.  For me the size small, offers low to mid compression.  I do not like my leggings to be too tight.  These are 100% opaque.  

Fit Review Werkshop Geisha Full Length Legging!

The Geisha legging is my favorite from Werkshop's Zen Garden collection .  The artwork on it is beautifully done.  The colors are gorgeous.  So I was super excited to finally get them last week, but as soon as I tried them on I knew they didn't work on petite gals.  This made me really sad because the print is so amazing. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and usually a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms. Geisha Full Length One of the most challenging things about being super petite is finding clothes that does not make us look short.  If something makes my legs look loooooong, it's a keeper.  In the photo above, you can see the face of the Geisha takes up almost half of my leg lengthwise.  And it draws the eye downwards making my leg look short.  There's not much to go after the neckline of her kimono = short legs.  I also think the white band on the lower part of the legging near my shin, doesn't help either.  The next photo highlights this even more so.  

Werkshop Angler Full Length Leggings! Plus Zen Garden Chapter 2 Launch!

I ended up returning my Purple Scales leggings in exchange for these Angler ones.  I decided while I did like the full length I wasn't totally convinced the Purple Scales was for me.  Werkshop was great throughout the return and exchange process.  The whole thing took about two weeks for me to get my Angler leggings.  It was very simple to do.  I sent them an email and they approved my exchange with a RMA number that I had to include with the Purple Scales.  Once they received the leggings they sent out the replacement Angler leggings in a couple of days. Full Length Angler I kind of enjoy scary and creepy things much to my husband's dismay.  I definitely can see myself wearing these out casually as well as for doing yoga or running.   Totally digging these sharp teeth! As for size these are a size small and I normally wear a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms.  As of right now the website has all sizes in stock.   The length of these are super long at 28.

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. Purple Scales 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
