I have this love-hate relationship with leggings. They’re incredibly comfortable and if I could, I’d live in them forever. However, if you buy the wrong pair they can be terribly unflattering. A bad pair of leggings could make your butt look flat or even worse, give you a camel toe. So when I heard about this “free” pair of leggings that Girlfriend Collective was giving away on Facebook, I was skeptical.

How could a “free” pair of leggings be any good? I started by asking my homegirl Kristi what she thought. She already received her pair and had been wearing them to work out for a while. Her feedback was positive so I took a chance and got my pair.┬áIt took a while for my pair of leggings to arrive since it was backordered but I tried them on as soon as they were delivered. And just like that, I fell in love with these startup brand leggings made from used plastic water bottles.

The Leggings

The leggings fit me like a glove and hugged me in all the right places. The fabric is very high-quality, feeling smooth and soft against the skin. The material is also thick enough so that you don’t feel over-exposed. During my workouts the leggings hold up better than the ones I purchased from Gap Fit. They stay in place and move with me seamlessly.

What I consider to be the icing on the cake for these already amazing leggings is how they’re produced. Girlfriend Collective prides themselves on being a sustainable fashion brand, and they mean it. The leggings are made of approximately 25 used plastic water bottles each.
