I’m not a big online clothing shopper because I like to be able to try on clothes before buying. I like to know how the fabric feels and if it fits me correctly without having to deal with hassel of shipping stuff back for a return. But when the people in a fitness-related Facebook group were raving about the 90 Degree Leggings by Reflex on Amazon, I knew I had to check them out.
And they are my favorite pairs of leggings! I have three pairs of them and they are the most comfortable and flattering leggings I’ve owned. Plus they are at an awesome price point at around $20 per pair.
I’ve been working out in one pair of these leggings (my Reflex Blue ones) since December 2016 and they still look and feel the same as the day I ordered them. No signs of wear or pilling and they are still squat proof. I wash them the same as all my other workouts clothes, in one big load and then everything is hung to dry.
What types of workouts have I done in these leggings? Everything I do! Because they are a silky material that stops mid-calf on me, I don’t usually grab them for yoga. I did that once and it was hard for my foot to stay in tree pose because it was sliding down. But weights, running and spin class have all been fantastic in them!
One downside is they seem to attract pet fur like nothing I’ve ever seen but that’s just the material they are made of. My black pair is the worst for showing Vinnie’s fur but it’s also the small price you pay for having a loving animal in your house.
All three colors I own are squat proof (they don’t show through when bending over or squatting) but I also have only bought darker colors. They have some awesome lighter colors that I’d like to try in the future but haven’t. I’ve heard the lighter colors are less squat-proof but this might depend on your body type and how they fit you.
