My Very Honest Review of LuLaRoe Leggings

When I first started hearing about LuLaRoe leggings I had no idea what everyone was talking about. I had no idea what the big hype was and then all of a sudden I started getting invited to a lot of LuLaRoe Facebook pages and also being added to a few without me even knowing. In addition, I had friends put their small business to the side, invest a ton of money and become LuLaRoe consultants. My mind was blown, I didn’t even know how to pronounce LuLaRoe and these people were taking such a big step with this company. I kept asking myself if this was a real or a fly by night pyramid scheme. Even though I am not a fashion guru, I am a leggings guru so I was determined to learn more.

These are the leggings that everyone is talking about. Here is my very honest review.

I joined a few LuLaRoe Facebook groups and was speechless. I was mesmerized. I thought that I was watching the Home Shopping Network.

I will be very honest, I could not stop watching and from the number in the top left-hand corner of the Facebook Live video, other people could not stop watching either.

I am not sure what fascinated me the most, the fact that I was watching groups of women and some men selling ‘soft buttery’ leggings live on Facebook or the fact that so many women were not only watching but buying them. They were buying a lot of them! 

If you are one of the few people that are not familiar with LuLaRoe leggings, they come in two sizes, one size and tall and curvy. They are also, in my opinion, very expensive. So when I saw that a lot of people in these live Facebook groups were buying more than 2 pairs of LuLaRoe leggings at one time and then coming back for more at a later date, I was curious.  

Before I jumped on the LuLaRoe bandwagon, I wanted to be able to actually see them, feel them, and try a pair on. I quickly discovered that would not be possible because LuLaRoe leggings were not sold in stores and I didn’t know anyone that sold them locally.

Since I couldn’t preview any, I decided that it would be my goal to win a pair. It must have been meant to be because I entered a giveaway and won, it was that easy!

When I won, I decided that I would order an additional pair so that I would have 2 pairs of LuLaRoe leggings to wear and see what the excitement about them was all about. I wore these around the house, I wore them to the store and I even wore them to Walt Disney World.

After a few months in my LuLaRoe leggings, I had a lot of opinions. Here is my very honest review of LuLaRoe Leggings.


  1. They are not kidding when they say ‘soft buttery’ leggings. I can’t stop touching them and they are very comfortable to the skin.
  2. There are a lot of fun and unique patterns. They even have Disney themed and holiday-themed patterns. Most likely you will not show up at a party, the grocery store or a play date with the same pair of LuLaRoe leggings as someone else.
  3. Depending on what you pair with your leggings, these leggings can be worn as a casual outfit or lounging around at the house.
  4. They never lose their buttery softness, even after several washes.
  5. Even though I think that these leggings are overpriced, the good thing is that if you really love them, the price is universal among sellers. Of course, a seller may lower the price to move inventory or another seller may unethically increase the price but all in all these leggings are normally $25.


  1. They are expensive. Some may not think that $25 plus shipping is expensive, but I do.
  2. The leggings come in 2 different sizes for adults. They are offered in OS (one size) and TC (tall & curvy). My problem with this is that women do not come in 2 sizes.
  3. Is it just me or do these LuLaRoe leggings give anyone else Camel Toe? It can be quite embarrassing. 
  4. Stay away from the light colored leggings. These will show every dimple and every bump on your bottom and thighs.
  5. When I wear these, I do not feel any support. I am 5ft 3in and today I weigh 119 pounds and I feel like my ‘mama baby, Dr. Pepper gut’ is sticking out and not supported. I also feel and see every jiggle when I walk. I know that some women love a little bit of jiggle and are ‘all about that bass’, but this mom isn’t. I like to have my jiggle contained with some durable spandex.
  6. Why do I have little holes in one pair of my LuLaRoe leggings? I followed the directions but after a few washes, little holes began to appear. I didn’t return them because I had already had them for a period of time but $25 leggings should not do this. 

Most likely I won’t buy more LuLaRoe leggings unless I fall in love and find my unicorn, but with everything, I am a true believer in that everyone should try these for themselves. We are all different and have different body types and just because these leggings give me a camel toe does not mean they will give you one.

Do you love LuLaRoe? What are your LuLaRoe pain points?


  1. I also went crazy and bought a bunch of leggings….today I put on my favorite pair – holes 🙁

    I have only worn them a few times and they are already garbage…no more for me. Vera Wang sells cute ones at Kohl’s that a cheaper and made well

  2. Great review! I love that you list the pros and cons and I can agree with you on almost all of them. I think the best pro is that Lularoe has the best patterns from all other brands, the unicorn ones are to die for LOL
    Glad I found this little blog. Keep up the great work!

  3. Alice Edmonds says

    I like the lalarou , they need to add a tall to the OS. The tall and curvy are way too baggy for me and the OS fits but is way too short. I have to push them up like Capri’s

  4. I’m 5’10, size 4-6. The tall & curvy are huge and bag on me, and the one size is way too short, it looks like I’m wearing capris. Sadly, one of my friends got into this MLM & is constantly pushing these leggings.

  5. Thanks for posting this review. My go-to leggings were always Victoria’s Secret for two reasons: (1) they had tall inseams and (2) the material was the type that DID hold in my mommy gut and didn’t let everything jiggle. (It was a cotton/spandex mix – not polyester like LuLaroe).

    Sadly, they stopped making all the fun prints, etc.

    So I am online looking to possibly get some LuLaroe on eBay.

    I’m glad I read your review, because I would NOT like these!

      Thank you,, If you find any cute prints that hold in jiggles and do not show off the camel toe.. please follow up and let me know. All the cute prints I see are extremely cheap and thin.

  6. So I’m a big LuLaRoe fan, or I was for a while… I’ve stopped buying. I went a little too crazy and yeah, they’re WAY expensive.

    I’d add a few more cons to your list actually… (As someone who owned like 100 pair there for a minute hahaha)

    – Even within those two sizes, the sizes aren’t consistent. I’m a size 24, which is right at the top of the TC sizing. TC leggings say they’re supposed to be sizes 12-24 and as a 24 I’d sometimes get pairs that fit perfect in their buttery softness, but you’d also get some that wouldn’t even fit a size 16… It was crazy how bad their cuts were on some pairs, and how inconsistent it is. Ordering online when there’s no guarantee of the fit being what is advertised is very frustrating. (A few great sellers have started measuring so you can know before you order if it’s one that fits bigger or smaller).

    – Holes. Granted, out of the 100 pairs I had, only like 6 or 7 got holes in them… But the ones which did it was almost always after one wear. I bought these coffee leggings I wanted so bad (over retail) and the first time I wore them they had dozens of tiny holes across the butt-even though they were ones that actually fit extra big on me. I had two solid colors get holes on as I went to put them on-before I even got it above my knee. I had a black pair that got holes on the third wear. So frustrating to pay so much and have them just fall apart.

    – Competition. Since they only make so many pairs of a certain fabric/pattern the competition is steep and people buy them up and sell them over retail for outrageous prices. It’s really frustrating, and you feel like you’re fighting your fellow women constantly for a pair of stupid leggings. I eventually stopped buying due to the quality issues and competition.
