I break out in a sweat just thinking of wearing those things this time of year.  I hate the feeling of leggings  on my legs.

 

Anyone who sits and listens to her hard-sell for more than 2 minutes, deserves to get them free.

I'll bet she has special " hangers" to hang them on , also ! Lol !

Her leggings and crop pants are way too revealing.  When fabric is being sucked up and chewed by the neither regions and the material looks like it has been painted on, they are too tight.  You might just walk around naked.  Nothing is left to the imagination.

I agree with the above critique.

 

I wear leggings to the gym at least 3X/week and would not buy these. This TS looks very thin and bunched-up in certain areas on the models.

 

I can find Mondetta (my favorite), Skechers, Danskin, and more at Costco. Leggings for no more than $17.99 that are much more substantial than the TS appears.

 

Questionable claims about the anti-microbial properties too. Not sure how this holds up in the wash, time after time?

I, too, wear leggings to the gym and I would NEVER wear those even to the gym.  They look like they're painted on.  It's bordering on obscene.  TMI IMO.

I would never spend this much even on sale and never wear without a long top over them. The seam going down the front is a turn off.

I have one pair of leggings that are pretty thick but would not wear them out unless going to the gym. 

If you are not in perfect shape you will see all the lumps and bumps showing thru. These looked pretty thin on the host Sarah that has a great figure.

Re: Joy’s Leggings?

[ Edited ]

I wasn't planning on responding to the OP @Skyegirl21 but after reading all the posts I must note that these are not any tighter than normal leggings. Leggings are meant to hug the body. I wear leggings 5-6x a week when I workout, in the summer I prefer cropped ones' but if these were extra soft I would consider.

 

I saw the picture someone posted and they look just how they are suppose to look. I'm surprised there is so much criticism. These are not meant to be loose. I got an email about these and kind of just ignored it but I think I will check them out. I believe I saw something in the email saying "cool" or similar wording. 

 

I definitely understand leggings are not for everyone, however, there are all shapes and sizes where I workout and they look very appropriate on everyone that I see. 

 

UPDATE: I checked them out and found they DO come in Capri length. Yea!! I ordered the grey. But, I do agree with some posters, Joy should have done all darker colors. I think the lighter colors, although very pretty, won't be the most flattering.

I must be the only one that have tons of her broken hangers. Some arrived broken and I probably have over 50 that have broken just pulling a lightweight top out of the closet. They do take up less room but I've had terrible luck with them.
