I want to be honest in my reviews and I feel as someone who doesn’t necessarily have a fitness model/athletic body I can be someone relatable to everyday girls and women who follow suit with a similar figure. So today I’m reviewing the GymShark Seamless High Energy Leggings.
Taking them out the bag and instantly loved the material, the colour was beautiful so I had high hopes. So as recommended I sized up as prior to release we were told these have a heavy compression. So that’s what I did I sized up, it still felt like a workout trying to get them on and the first thing I noticed when they were on... my underwear, it was pretty much blaring out at me (could just wear nude). Putting that aside the feel of them on felt nice, I was definitely compressed in but again another thing blaring at me was my crotch, the cut did not suit or make that area forgiving whatsoever, I felt like you could see way too much that what was needed—however no camel toe.
The compression held me in pretty well, but it did make my bum look quite flat, there wasn’t anything in the way of support or shape in that area.
Unfortunately I have come to the conclusion that these leggings are not for me, for my shape and size they were just not flattering and made me feel so self conscious that I couldnt even work out in them. Style definitely won over function in this instant.
