OK OK let me preface this post by telling you that I was not interested in LuLaRoe at all until recently. I had heard about the company before (I only knew about the leggings) and frankly I just didn’t understand the hype… until I finally broke down and bought my first pair of leggings.
When my friend and sorority sis (shoutout to DG woo!) started selling LuLaRoe I thought, “hey, I’ve done direct sales, I get it, I’ll support her business” and then I made my next mistake… I thought to myself, “I probably won’t even like them so I’ll just buy one pair and that will be it forever.” So I did what any logical person would do, I found the most (in my opinion) outrageous pair of leggings I liked and I bought them. HA.
Let me just start by saying, BELIEVE THE HYPE (I’m literally wearing them right now and I took these pictures over a week ago). When I put these babies on for the first time, OH WOW, seriously the most comfortable leggings/pants I have EVER put on my body- no joke!! They describe the leggings as feeling like butter and so let me confirm for you, YES, they feel like butter and amazingness.
What I think is really fun is that only 5,000 pieces are made in a certain print, so basically you could have leggings that no one else in your state or city has! Pretty cool! LuLaRoe also makes dresses, cardigans and tops (haven’t tried them) but I will just point that out!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- The adult leggings are $25 and come in two sizes- OS (one size= sizes 2-10) and TC (tall and curvy= sizes 12-22) I’m 5ft tall and the OS leggings are a tiny bit big on me. They come up a little over my belly button which doesn’t bother me and they have some extra fabric at my ankles. Keep in mind, I’m used to things being big on me because well, I’m extremely short. LLR does make tween sizes so (yes, it’s embarrassing) I think I might have to try them out for length.
- In order to keep the quality of the leggings in tact, you have to wash the leggings inside out on a cold, gentle cycle and hang to dry. That means I probably can’t just throw them into my “everything loads” which is me trying to get through laundry day as quickly and painlessly as possible. We will see how it goes!
LuLaRoe leggings cost $25. I have been buying leggings from Victoria’s Secret PINK for years now (which apparently now cost between $20 and $70! Seriously?) and let’s be real- they stretch out (especially in the knees) within five minutes of wearing them. It drives me CRAZY. The LLR leggings haven’t stretched out yet and I have worn them at least 5 times in the past two weeks! I also own leggings from Target (another pair that stretch immediately after washing) and Wal-Mart. My Wal-Mart pairs are slightly see-through apparently (I found out after wearing them to the gym so that’s cool…) and these are not at all.
I have seen so many cute outfits styled with LuLaRoe pieces but honestly I had a really hard time matching anything to these leggings (totally my fault for buying colors that don’t match what I have in my closet) but I did pair them with my absolute favorite sweatshirt of all time (you need one, you just do! I wear it weekly) and my favorite v-neck tee! I tried pattern mixing with my floral sneakers and I’m pretty happy with the result!

My overall opinion? I’m buying more. Beware- the addiction is REAL. What are your thoughts? Have you tried LuLaRoe in the past?
