Urdhva Reversible Yoga Leggings
as a result of my boyfriend researching yoga & pilates clothes for a gift for me, we ended up getting a mail catalogue which i took to bed and poured over for days. the Urdhva leggings where my first Sweaty Betty Purchase and I'm in love! I was a tad confused about sizing, I'm typically a M as a 6 or 8. Specifically a 29/30 in jeans... and as I read other reviews and the measurement guide I ended up ordering the L and they fit great. Am curious what a M would feel like (probably a bit tighter in the leg area/more like spanx?) but with a drawstring waist I find they don't slip/slide and I feel like they fit me fine (read: no camel toe). Love that they are reversible and they wash great! Have already ordered 3 more pairs of their other pants.

Two for the price of one!
Loved the reversible leggings last season and wore them to death - and hey ho - yet another fabulous reversible pair. Extremely flattering, comfortable, quick drying and simply gorgeous!

Fabulous in every respect.
Beautiful design, great fit, fully reversible, lovely colour combination. I'm an 8 and the xs fits me perfectly. I wore these for a Bodybalance workout today and I was very comfortable in them . Highly recommended! Ps... The matching top looks great with them too. Customer Services were very helpful when I complained about Interlink Express delivery services.

I needed a pair of new leggings for hot yoga, and picked these up without trying them on - probably not the smartest thing to do, but as it turns out, these are absolutely perfect and I'm glad I bought them.
They are true to size, and most importantly, completely opaque - great for yoga and any other activity that involves a lot of stretching!
I would definitely recommend these leggings.

Elastic band is the only flaw
I loved the leggings when I saw them online so I went to the store to see if that love would still be there in person...and it sure was. These leggings are great. The fit is good, a bit snug and I think that's because they are reversible. My only problem is the elasticated waist. I elastic band runs tight so it does cause a slight muffin top. I think the leggings would have been fine without it elastic band. If they weren't so pretty I'd even remove the elastic but I don't want to risk wrecking the product.

Flattering and fit for purpose!
Good length and a nice fit, with flattering inserts in the sides, these are really lovely to wear. As they are reversible you can't get bored either!

Simple leggings with no pockets, zips, or complications
I wear these for running. They have no back zipped pocket, which I think is a GOOD thing, (because I wear a running belt and if there's a back pocket it presses the zip into my back.)
They don't quite come up to my natural waist, but about an inch and a half below my belly button. This is OK, but I'd prefer them higher.
They are stretchy but not as stretchy as the Chandrasana leggings I ordered at the same time. OK for running though.
There is a draw cord. I haven't used it as they fit quite closely and don't fall down. The fit at the calves and ankles is quite snug, so if you have big feet or strong calves there might be a problem getting them on or off.
I love the printed design - it's bright and urban, and not too fussy.
The really good thing about them is that the material is slippery and they don't chafe. I wear them next to the skin with no underwear and they are fine.
How about a running top in the same great design?

Love the design, reversability. and fabric! do rid down a little, but the drawstring takes care of that! My 1st patterned leggings! Stepping out of my box and loving it!

Versatile stylish leggings
I loved these when I first saw the new collection and treated myself to them at the end of January. So far I've worn them for yoga and for the SB ballet bootcamp. I may wear them for running - as the description says, they do have a drawstring waist, but they don't have a pocket so probably better for yoga/Pilates/gym than running. Overall I recommend them - they are pricey but lovely!
