Second Try for Beyond Yoga Essential Gathered Legging Is A Win... in Dusk!

I bought Beyond Yoga's Essential Gathered Legging from Gilt back in March in white.  I loooooved how they felt since they were so soft and amazing on.  But they were completely sheer in the butt so I had to return them.  But last Thursday a lovely lady in a Lulu facebook group I belong to posted a link to a Beyond Yoga private sale where these leggings were up for grabs for $30.  That's $15 cheaper than Gilt's price and $45 less than the original retail price!  Though most colors they had were a bit too crazy for me.  I did, however, get them in Dusk, which looked like a grayish teal color to me.


I received my package today (pretty fast shipping!) and they are exactly the color I expected!  I ordered them in size XS, which is same as the white ones I ordered from Gilt which I thought was the right size for me.  When I took these out of the box though, I thought the waist looked super small and was going to be too tight.  But it is actually very stretchy and fits perfectly!  And I love the color a lot!  It's very different from my other bottoms which are mostly black and dark grays and blues.  I think it's actually quite a versatile color.  And it's not too bright and crazy so I can get more use out of them.  

Same as the white ones I got before, these are sooooo soft and feel divine on.  Like you'd never want to take them off.  I did a bend over test and they are completely opaque too.  They have a triangle gusset.  I think they will be great for yoga or pilates.  I'd also wear them to do weight lifting.  I wonder if this color shows sweat though.  The gathered details on the calves are super cute:



Here they are on me:


Wide comfy waistband, rise is similar to Lululemon's wunder unders

Beyond Yoga logo on back of the waistband... it's kind of big but it will be hidden by tanks


So I'm very happy with these and cannot wait to wear them!  I love the price I paid for these too.  I paid $30 for my Zobha Racer capri as well, but I am way happier with the fit and material of these ones than the Zobha ones.

  1. Glad to hear of another good brand. I have a pair of zohba capris, very opaque but ride down too much. I am constantly pulling them up.

    1. I'm not sure why I don't like my Zobha capris that much... they don't ride down on me. I think they are just ok, nothing to write home about...

  2. I want to order Beyond Yoga leggings but not sure what size. Any recommendations? What size do you wear in lululemon? I have a 25" waist, 36" hips and wear a size 4 in lululemon.

    1. I also wear a size 4 in Lululemon bottoms and I wear size XS in these Beyond Yoga leggings. Sounds like it should work for you as well!

  3. How are your Beyond Yoga leggings holding up for you? I was thinking about buying the white ones (not anymore, after reading what you said), but I like a lot of the colors they have. But I've read a few reviews that say they don't hold up as well. Getting less expensive leggings isn't worth it if they're not going to wear well, right?

    1. They are doing well so far! But I've only worn each a couple times... I did notice during my pilates class that when rubbed against the machine, a few little balls formed on the fabric. But they come off really easily if you brush with your hand. I guess it's a form of pilling maybe... so far the material doesn't appear to be any thinner or look any different than before, but then again I haven't used them heavily yet...
