This product review was conducted on the Frida Yoga, Size Small, Extra Long Legging as seen below.
The very first thing I noticed when trying out my new YD leggings was how soft everything was! The print is definitely something I have never seen before, which is a huge plus, but the material was the comfiest and softest pair of leggings I have probably ever put on.
If you have seen any of my YouTube or Instagram training videos, 99% of the time I am in shorts or capri’s simply because I hate the way long leggings feel against my skin.
Not with these.
The print is loud and fun, the quality is just thick enough without being miserable when you sweat and the stitching is impeccable. Everything held up perfectly during a workout, no see-through mishaps and the breathable material really got me over my fear of long leggings.
Rich even stated that these leggings were the most flattering pair I now own, which is impressive since the majority of my closet is workout clothes! The staff at Yoga Democracy is wonderfully helpful with sizing as well and suggested that with me being 5’7”, the “extra-long” legging design would be the best fit, and they definitely are!
I thought that was a very unique and courteous way to serve their customers as it is such a pain to find proper fighting active wear. Another quality of the leggings that I enjoy is the thick waist band. Rich was right, it is quite flattering on the stomach whilst extenuating a thinner waistline!
Overall, the quality of these leggings were unlike any I had ever tried on before. I was thoroughly impressed! I would have never personally picked such a bold design as the one I received but I am very thankful that the Frida Leggings were the ones I receive! You definitely turn some heads in these babies.

Here is where things got a bit tricky for me in this product review.
If you were unaware of the absolute comfort and quality of this product, I find it hard to see how the price point of $59-$75 dollars is appropriate in a market that is so heavily saturated by legging brands.
Most people might easily be swayed away from this and quite frankly, I probably would have been as well.
The price point is a bit higher than most workout or yoga leggings available, however, even I can’t deny the way I feel in them. I would have never suspected that a fitness legging could be this comfortable. Everything I have ever tried on usually has one issue (doesn’t fit right in the butt, slides down when you squat, material is too thick, etc), but with these I was able to just focus on what I needed to do in the gym without adjusting 20 times and actually feel good while doing it. For me, that is well worth whatever price tag they show.
This is my favorite part about writing reviews, I don’t have to deliver any bad news and can just tell you guys honestly and unbiased that I love these leggings and look forward to purchasing more in the future. I do hope the free range humans at Yoga Democracy continue to produce these fun and functional leggings with a variety of different styles for a variety of different women! Because everyone deserves to feel powerful and beautiful in their gear.
The quality of these leggings were unlike any I had ever tried on before. I was thoroughly impressed! I would have never personally picked such a bold design as the one I received but I am very thankful that the Frida Leggings were the ones I receive! You definitely turn some heads in these babies.
