Gymshark Seamless Energy High Waisted Cropped leggings – Review

When looking for a new pair of gym leggings I knew I wanted to purchase another pair of Gymshark Seamless Leggings. They’re always of such a high quality and fit perfectly, not to mention they are very stylish too!

As soon as I saw the Kharki Energy Seamless Leggings, I knew I had to purchase a pair. After seeing all the ambassadors wearing and promoting them prior to their official release, they were calling my name!

Prior to purchasing Gymshark leggings I was wearing a few pairs from Reebok which are nice and do fit me well; I still struggled with the length though however they just weren’t high waisted enough for me and they did have a habit of falling down during my workout.

How expensive are Gymshark leggings?

They might seem a bit on the pricey side compared to other brands but they’re worth every penny!  They fit me perfectly and I typically struggle with finding flattering leggings. Not only can you wear them to the gym, you will want to wear them 24/7, even to bed!

The Seamless energy range currently is available in three colours, Kharki, Black and Beet; which is unsurprisingly a purple, beetroot colour. If I could, I would purchase all three of them as I am so impressed with the kharki pair!

What’s the style like of Gymshark leggings?

Aesthetically the Gymshark leggings are pretty nice on the eye.  I haven’t seen anyone that doesn’t rock the fit. The colours are rich and the quality of the fabric is incredible. They’re comfortably stretchy and their opacity is not a problem during your workout.

I do find that the regular length leggings are too long for me so if you are petite I’d definitely recommend purchasing the cropped version! They may not be full length but will fit like an ankle grazer.

How’s Gymshark’s sizing?

The energy seamless leggings are very figure hugging and have the same qualities as a compression legging, however, you almost forget you have them on as they fit so well!  That being said, Gymshark recommends you size up in these leggings if you are in between sizes to ensure your completely squat-safe.  However, regardless of whether you choose to size up or not, I would definitely recommend wearing seamless underwear as they will show pant lines because of their snug fit!

I chose not to size up. I felt if I did they would be too big and I’m very glad I didn’t as they are still completely squat proof which is a huge box that HAS to be ticked! The high waisted fit ensures ultimate support and comfort and if anything helps you engage your core during exercises!

As I am only 5’2 I purchased the cropped version of the Seamless Energy High Waisted Leggings as I felt these would fit me better than the regular length. I already had a pair of the Flex Leggings in Marl/Peach Pink which fit me really well but because I have short legs I have to roll up the bottoms.

Little perks

They have funky eyelet details on the thighs and ankles with glute sculpting contour lines so everyone appreciates all your hard work! DRY technology within the leggings wicks whisks sweat away before you even notice it. Keeping you feeling fresh throughout your workout.

The final  verdict

Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and already find myself wearing them on days I don’t even go to the gym! I am looking forward to purchasing another pair and can’t imagine it will be long before I do! I really do think they are worth the money and are in a league of their own!
