New Spanx Leather-Like Product Review
If you are new around here you should know that I haven’t met a Spanx product that I didn’t absolutely love…yet.
The products work with my curves, make me feel good, and are easy to style into my everyday wardrobe.
leather-like ankle skinny pant | wearing a medium regular
The 5-pocket styling is what did it for me with the skinny pant. They feel like a legging (so comfortable) but look like a real pair of leather pants. The hidden shaping panel flattens and tones your tummy I mean scroll up and look at the first photo. I am one confident curvy lady in these pants.
leather-like jogger | wearing a size medium
I hate to play favorites…but these are my FAVORITE of the new styles. They really look and feel like leather (like the skinny), but are flattering in a relaxed/effortless way. These WILL be a staple in my wardrobe.
This style does run big, but not big enough to make me want to size down to a size small. I like that they are bigger and sit a bit higher on my waist. I have been styling them with my SKIMS bodysuits and could not feel more confident in them!
faux patent leather leggings | wearing a size medium regular
Have you ever seen the episode of Friends when Ross is struggling to put on his leather pants in the bathroom?
That was me the first time I put them on. I’m not going to sugarcoat it. It took me a solid 20 minutes to get these leggings on the first time I wore them. It was a FULL workout and I walked out of the house a sweaty mess!
I was also hesitant to like these leggings because I owned the Commando version of these leggings and they quickly got a hole in them after one wear however, my Forever 21 version of these leggings lasted forever!
So after a couple of wears, here is my final review ->
You NEED to break them in. They are tight plastic pants, but once you get them on they are 100% worth it. I originally questioned if I needed to size up to a large with this style, but once you break them in you are good to go in your usual Spanx size. These pants are NOT easy to wear, but the hidden contoured waistband makes them another flattering legging option in my closet.
No center-seam = more camel toe
Hot Tip: Like all patent leather, you may experience some squeakiness during wear. If this occurs, apply lotion or oil to the outside of the legging at the inner thighs <- I didn’t need to do this. I found that once I worked them in the squeaking went away and I was moving and shaking.
I will wear these leggings because I’m Kat and Spanx sent them to me for free. If you are going to invest in any of the new styles head straight to the leather-like joggers and don’t look back.
