Ok, I'm definitely not a spend a million dollars on workout wear type of girl. I usually grab a couple pairs of running shorts or workout leggings at Target and call it a day. But when I decided to write about workout wear for pear-shaped bodies, I also decided to at least TRY out some more high-end workout wear pieces. I actually asked on Instagram stories and the messages spoke for themselves. “ZELLA LEGGINGS. They're the BEST!” “Worth every penny!” “They suck you in and feel amazing!”
The messages just.kept.coming. At some point, I was realized I had to try them. But honestly? WHO PAYS like $75 for a pair of workout leggings? They'd better be AWESOME. Cause otherwise? They were going right on back to the store.
I asked my Trunk Club stylist a few months back to send some great workout wear options. Since Trunk Club stocks Nordstrom brands, I knew Zella Leggings would be an option. I specifically requested Zella Leggings High Waist and Zella Live In Leggings. I figured I could try them on in the comfort of my own home, try them on with workout tops I already owned, and scrutinize them in the light of day instead of the magic Nordstrom dressing room lights.
I was prepared to be underwhelmed. While I'm all about buying high-end JEANS, I have a hard time justifying spending a ton on workout wear. You just sweat in it, right? Is it REALLY worth spending a ton on? They're stretchy pants. I mean, how great can they be? I figured all of you had just drunk the kool-aid.
VERDICT: Zella High Waist Leggings are Worth Every Penny
The minute I tried them on, I knew I was a convert. THIS IS WHY everyone is obsessed. These Zella Leggings are the Divine High Waist version, and I can't even count how many times I've worn them since they arrived (full disclosure, I also own three more pairs). They fit my pear-shaped body like a DREAM. Usually, I struggle with workout wear (especially leggings) fitting appropriately. Leggings often fit in the thighs and hips but still gap at the waist. But these? Hug curves without cutting off my circulation, and the fabric is JUST thick enough to hold everything in place but to still be super comfortable.
