Sarah’s verdict: 7/10
These were really comfortable to wear – and they were the thinnest options out of the three pairs of leggings that we tried on, which meant they were probably the most versatile in terms of wear.
I did think that this impacted the effectiveness a little bit though; unlike the Spanx which had a thick band around the waist to nip everything in, these were slightly lacking in that area. I thought they made my bum look pretty good though!
Passing the test: Emma said that her Yummie Tummie leggings were comfortable and didn’t feel too restricting on her waist.
Versatile: Sarah liked the fit of Yummie Tummie’s leggings (pictured) and said she would wear them for a variety of activities.
HOLD YOUR HAUNCHES – Sleek Cheek Leggings, $139
The sports leggings were from EMILYLEGGINGS, a newcomer to the shapewear scene. We tested out the most basic style, the Shapewear Pants, but were less than impressed with the fit.
We all struggled to put them on, mostly because the sports leggings feature an inner lining that doesn’t easily line up with the outer fabric.
Susan’s verdict: 4/10
I did not like how these leggings felt on my body, and just the process of putting them on was a workout in itself. I couldn’t wait to take them off. However, after I saw the photos, I do think they made my butt look good, so I guess it just depends on how much I want to suffer in order to look thinner.
Hold it right there: Susan found Hold Your Haunches shapewear (seen above) too difficult to put on and take off.
Too much trouble: Emma said her Hold Your Haunches leggings were too uncomfortable to wear
Emma’s verdict: 2/10
These were an utter nightmare to get on. The weird satin-style inner layer is shorter than the outer layer and putting them on results in all kinds of unsightly bunches under the top layer.
I also don’t think these are made for short people because they were not only extremely long, but I couldn’t get the crotch of the leggings to sit anywhere right without pulling the weird expanding waistband up to my boobs. All around unpleasant.
Aside from all that, I’m quite sure that they actually FLATTENED my butt. I’ll give them 2 points just because they were, in fact, black and not see-through – the most minimal pluses I can think of.
Worth it? Sarah couldn’t wait to take off the Hold Your Haunches shapewear (pictured), but admitted they were good for body contouring
Sarah’s verdict: 6/10
I’m actually giving these a higher score than I originally thought I would, simply because I think they look a lot better in the photos than they did in real life.
Sadly though any effectiveness in terms of what the leggings can actually do for your figure is overshadowed by the nightmare process of putting them on; the leggings have a bizarre two-layer system which makes them fairly tricky to actually put on (so much so that the brand actually offers a how-to video guide on its website) making them less than ideal for slipping on in a quick minute.
However, despite the difficulties I had actually putting the leggings on, once they were-finally-in place, I was fairly impressed with the results. Next time I know I have to set aside a good ten minutes to wrestle with them though!
