Buying leggings from a company online for the first time can leave you feeling a little unsure with questions. Below, I cover how Gymshark’s DRY Sculpture Leggings look, feel, perform, and ship, along with some pros and cons, so you can feel more confident before hitting that checkout button.
Don’t have to do much explaining here as these leggings obviously look super cute! I chose ‘Slate Blue,’ as I thought the color was different and pretty.
I love the mesh/transparent lining down the leg, and the handy pockets on the sides, and backside. When wearing these, I slip my iPhone 6 in, and don’t find it to get in the way–love it! More companies should incorporate this feature into their leggings, cough cough, Nike.
The main material is 87% Polyester and 13% Elastane, which to be honest, feels somewhat heavy and sticky (and gross) when getting sweaty, as it somewhat absorbs and holds onto sweat. Therefore, this material is not like Nike’s Dri-FIT, where it absorbs moisture but still remains feeling light.
In my past experience, when I would get leggings that originally fit perfectly, they would usually become too loose (especially in the waistband) as time went on. So now, I often purchase leggings a size smaller, as I like my leggings to be tight, but not over-compressive.
In jeans I typically wear a size 2. The leggings shown here are size small.
If I were to purchase these over, I would go with a size medium instead of small because I have to wrestle with these to get them on and off; plus, I feel that these compress my legs and bum too much.
I must say though, the waistband on these are nice and tight–I don’t find myself constantly pulling them up after each set in the gym, so that is definitely a plus.
I was impressed with how fast I received my leggings, considering they come all the way from the U.K.
I paid $15 for two-day shipping, rather than $10 for 5-7 business days. For $5 more, might as well, right? In total, Gymshark’s DRY Sculpture Leggings come to be $58 (unless you use a Gymshark athlete’s discount code at check-out).
So how do these perform in the gym? Pretty good! Check ’em out in action:
Overall, I give these leggings an 7/10.
And so, I will continue on my hunt to find the perfect pair of gym leggings! (See more reviews below!)
