I know I’m not alone in saying this, but I’m self-conscious about my belly. As much as I love wearing just a sports bra or a crop top with a pair of leggings, I rarely do it because I don’t like the way it looks on my figure. That all changed, though, when I got my first pair of Outdoor Voices leggings.
I’m an athleisure fiend. I’ve tried just about every brand out there, and I can tell you the pros and cons of each one — like the Outdoor Voices Tech Sweat 3/4 Leggings ($85). This sweat-wicking, breathable pair of leggings is high-waisted, but the waistband isn’t so tight that it pinches into my belly, which has been a problem for me in the past.
I have two pairs of these leggings, one in Night (classic black) and one in Baltic (a gorgeous navy blue shade). They’re truly the only leggings in my closet that I feel comfortable wearing with a crop top or just a sports bra. As you can see in the video below, I’m wearing one of my favorite crop tops with a pair of Tech Sweat Leggings, and even though I’m moving around a lot, I never have to worry about the waistband folding over or my stomach protruding over the fabric. They’re so comfortable!
I’m also a huge fan of the Outdoor Voices 3/4 Warmup Leggings ($70). I feel comfortable enough to wear this pair with a sports bra as well, and there’s never any concern about the fabric shifting or moving around. I’m head over heels! And the added bonus? These leggings give the illusion that I have sculpted abs (especially when I find the right light). Don’t believe me? See the picture above.
