Y’all (my old Texan ways are coming back to me) already know that I’ve lost 20lbs since I started Buff Mama Monday back in August. What you don’t know is what I wore while breaking a sweat to lose those pounds. Lucy Activewear sent me a pair of their perfect core pants all the way back in August. I live in these pants and I should probably buy another pair so I don’t have to do laundry as often as I do just so I can wear these pants.
These babies suck you in and slim you out, fabulous for someone who is a little self conscious about her body (ahem, me). These pants fit almost like leggings above the knee and I can see why the website recommends ordering a size larger. I wasn’t totally comfortable sporting these in the gym until I started losing weight (and losing the large derriere). But in the pants defense, I was in between sizes when I received these and opted for the smaller size. I now wear them out all the time and I’m absolutely comfortable in them.
Another huge plus about these pants? They come in tall, hallelujah! I’m 5’10 and I have a difficult time finding tall pants. I’ve ordered tall yoga pants online before (because stores rarely carry tall in store) and when I get them they aren’t tall enough or they shrink after a couple washes, totally annoying! The pants from Lucy are actually TALL with room to spare and they don’t shrink (I’ve tested this out a million times already). These pants also come in short and regular.
Besides super awesome tall pants, Lucy sells activewear tops, bras, hoodies and more. The price is a bit more than I’m used to spending on workout gear, but after reviewing these pants I would be willing to shell out the cash for more. These clothes are made to last and withstand wear and tear. I bought another pair of cheap yoga pants the same time I received the Lucy pants and the other pants are pretty much ready to be upcycled. The Lucy pants look brand new. I’m starting a mama bootcamp in February and I might just have to treat myself to a cute new workout top before it starts.
