Our Best Leggings Ranked By Compression

0 comments

 

Shopping for leggings online can be a challenge. With so many options, it can be super tricky to figure out which pair has all the great features you’re looking for. Whether you’re new here or you’ve been with us for a while, this legging comparison blog will help make picking your next pair super easy. Let’s dive in!

Why P’tula Leggings Are The Best In The Biz

Before we dive in, we’d love to highlight a couple of things all of our leggings offer that we think make our leggings truly a cut above the rest. 

  1. All P’tula leggings offer no front-rise seam. Why does this matter? No front rise seam means extra comfort, a cleaner, more seamless look, and helps to prevent camel toe. We love to see it!

  2. V-Contour Stitching. All of our leggings have a slightly tapered V seam at the back; this helps accentuate the booty and gives everyone the perfect peach look (you’re welcome!)

  3. Inseam Lengths & Inclusive Sizing! Leggings for everyone! We believe that everyone deserves to find the perfect pair of leggings. Tall or short, thick or thin. Movement and feeling good are for everyone. That’s why we offer our leggings in a wide variety of both sizes and inseams. (We’re looking out for our tall and short girlies too!) 

Our Leggings- Ranked By Compression

Whether you’re looking for something super comfortable or seeking a pair of leggings that offer more sculpting and contouring, we have something for you. We’ve ranked our best leggings in order of least to most compressive to help you find what you’re looking for. 

1. The Peak Legging

If you love pattern, our Peak leggings are a great choice (the Spruce colorway will make you feel like a mermaid!). They are some of our stretchiest and most comfortable leggings. Many women are able to wear these through much of their pregnancy due to their high stretch and superior comfort. They come in a super fun jacquard fabric that is very flattering. The matching Peak Sports Bra creates the perfect set for the gym and beyond! 

What Makes It Unique:

The Reviews Are In! What Our Customers Say About Peak: “Great pants! These were one of my first purchases from P’tula, and I have been addicted since. These have so much stretch to them, but stay up during the entire workout! I don’t feel like they hold any heat, so you can wear these on the warmer days or cold days, and they don’t show sweat! Super happy with all my P’tula products!!!” — Kathryn
 

2. The Bare II Legging

Our Bare II Leggings are more lightweight than our Bare Pro leggings. These are great for year-round but work especially well in the warmer weather months and are perfect for keeping cool.

Our Cassey leggings are some of our most versatile leggings. Think of them as a more “girl next door” version of Sierras.
