Review: BOMBSHELL SPORTSWEAR THIGH-HIGH SOCK LEGGINGS™

Fitness meets fashion with these sexy, luxurious, athletic leggings! This comprehensive review covers how Bombshell Sportswear’s Thigh-High Sock Leggings™ look, feel, perform, and ship, along with some pros and cons, so you can decide whether or not to add them to your gym wardrobe.

Look

Bombshell Sportswear’s Thigh High Sock Leggings™ look, well, BOMB!

I instantly fell in love with the “sock-like” look, and even more so with the recently released ‘Silver‘ color. The mesh material from the thigh down provides a nice contrast in texture and appearance, and also aides in breathability.

Feel

I was a bit worried before receiving these leggings that the material would not be of good quality–but was reassured when I ripped open the package. The main material (surrounding the bum and upper thighs) has a soft, silky, yet athletic feel, that stretches and compliments your body, like a second skin. Very comfortable to wear both in or out of the gym!

  • Fabric(s) Body: 89% Polyester + 11% Spandex
  • Contrast Socks: 94% Micro Poly + 6% Spandex
  • Sock Stripes: 90% Nylon + 10% Spandex

Sizing

When it came to ordering these leggings, I debated back and forth on sizing–eventually messaging a few gals on the ‘gram to see what sizes they were wearing, so I could use that as a reference. I ended up choosing size “Small,” and am glad I did because it was nearly perfect for me.

As stated above, the main material really is quite stretchy; so whether you’re short or tall, curvy or slim, these leggings should be able to adapt to your figure; I recommend ordering the same size you typically wear in leggings, or, one size lower if you want a much tighter waistband (explained below).

Performance

Bombshell Sportswear’s Thigh High Sock Leggings™ allow you to move about freely while working out–not over-compressing your legs or bum like some leggings do. However, the waistband on these leggings could be tighter; I find myself pulling them up several times in the gym–especially after doing squats. Check ’em out in action:

 

 

Pricing & Shipping

Bombshell Sportswear’s Thigh High Sock Leggings™ run in at $86, plus $6 for (standard, domestic) shipping, for a grand total of $91.95. But if you sign-up for their site newsletter, you can receive 10% off your order. At the time of this writing, I used code ‘LOVEBOMB‘.

So are the Thigh High Sock Leggings™ worth it?

These are the most expensive gym leggings I have purchased to date. Similarly to Celestial Bodiez, you are paying more for the leggings because they are cute and unique to the company. While I do really love the way Bombshell Sportswear’s Thigh High Sock Leggings™ look and feel — nearly $100 bucks is obviously quiet a lot. Furthermore, I am unable to comment on the longevity of these leggings at the moment, but will update this post after several sweaty sessions of training in them.

*** update after 5 months of wear ***

Leggings have held up pretty well! Some of the stitching around the white leg stripes has loosened and there are a few snags in the material (from pulling up material while having long nails).

Here are some tips to preserve the longevity of these leggings:

  • Avoid wearing when doing exercises that may involve increased friction (i.e. deadlifts, running, etc.)
  • Do not put in dryer. Allow them to air dry instead.
  • Pull up material with side of finger tips, rather than with nail — especially if you have acrylic nails.

Overall, I give these leggings a 9/10. While they are pricy, I do enjoy them very much, and would recommend these gorgeous leggings if you have extra bucks to spare!

  1. Love this post!

    I think buying workout clothes that make you look and feel good will encourage you to want to work out more. I love that you added the percentages of all the materials. Keep up the awesome work. I’m looking forward to reading about the longevity of these leggings.

    1. Haley,

      Glad you enjoyed the post and found it helpful! Haha, I can relate to that statement–I know I’m always extra excited to train in new gym apparel. 🙂

      I’ve worked out in these leggings probably 3 or 4 times now, so I still don’t feel adequate to comment on the longevity of them yet, however, I can tell you that doing deadlifts in these leggings is not a good idea whatsoever lol.

  2. Hannah! I’m so glad you did a review for these. I’m trying to ball on a budget and I’m wondering: are you aware of any dupes for this style? I don’t mind dishing out $50 for quality, but nearly $100 for leggings that aren’t lulu is pushing it for me

    1. Glad you appreciated the review Carly! ❤️ I totally understand where you are coming from — it is a lot for a pair of leggings. I don’t know any dupes for these leggings, but I’m sure there are some out there! If you haven’t already, you could just try a Google search for sock leggings and see if other brands come up?
