Ingrid & Isabel Leggings

I was so excited to order these leggings online last week.  Leggings have been a mainstay since my first trimester.  They are maximum comfort to a pregnant belly.  I love the photos of the Ingrid and Isabel leggings.  I love the supportive stretch over the belly, and how you can tuck it down under everything when you get really big.

I got them last week and loved them at first sight.  The fabric is soft, though thinner than I had expected.  No matter.  I’ve worn them to two yoga classes, and once to work.

I put them on under a tunic today and sighed.  It seems that there are already a few small fuzzy pulls on my calf.  Also, my favorite and lovely over the knee boots have ruined the fabric where they hit over the knee.  How disappointing!  So much for a $50 pair of leggings that reports to have been tested for wear and tear.  I was hoping that if I shelled out a little extra, I could just wear them everyday if I hand washed them every night.  These leggings won’t last another month at this rate.

I think that my next order will go for these $20 micro-fiber leggings on Amazon, which look exactly the same.  I won’t feel as bad ruining $20 leggings as I feel having already ruined these.

I wore the American Apparel ones -high waisted. They ruled but they too wear out if you wash them as much as I do. I stick them in the cycle almost 3 times a week. Maybe you should try a pair?

Maybe I’ll try them on… but I have a pair of AA leggings, and they are so tight and not stretchy enough. I wear them to yoga, but the bottom seam, around the ankle, is so constricting. They also have an elastic that puts too much of a line across my belly, but I assume that the high waisted ones won’t.

I just ordered those $20 microfiber ones. I’ll see how those go. Leggings are seriously ALL I wear now. I’m thankful to be pregnant during the time of tunics and leggings!
