As a mom of two active young children (7 year old and 1 year old), I am constantly on the move and need some pants that can move right on with me.
Since my days of pregnancy, I have found leggings to be my go-to for comfort and multi-functional style. From running errands to Friday date night with my husband, leggings are a girl’s best friend!
Style Story: Why I Love Spanx Leggings
When I first tried Spanx leggings a few years ago, I was pleasantly surprised by how flattering they were. The high waist helped secure my stomach in all the right places and the quality of material was like nothing I’ve ever had. They’ve lasted me for several years with no fading, tearing or shrinking in the laundry! They truly are the best leggings I’ve ever had (and I’ve tried a ton!) and absolute must-have, even if you just save up for one pair.
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings are NEXT LEVEL
Now that the Spanx faux leather leggings are on the scene, the game has officially been forever changed.
And by the way, can we take a moment and acknowledge how much of an official GIRL BOSS Sara Blakely is?!!! Seriously though. I absolutely LOVE her story and it’s a joy to follow along the journey via her Instagram. She is totally repsiresenting for all the women out there working hard, raising young children and going after a dream that helps to empower others. Major shoutout!)
So back to these glorious faux leather leggings…
I first tried on the Spanx faux leather moto leggings for fun at Evereve (the ultimate mom store…they even have a kids play area near the fitting rooms!!) and I was shocked. I literally felt like Wonder Woman! Like, immediate hot mama factor. Haha. They were slimming. They were stretchy. They were comfy. They were snatching my waist like it’d never been snatched before. I knew that even though they were pricy, they’d be worth saving up for!
Fast forward to November 2018, I’m walking through Nordrstom Rack to peek and see if they have a pair by chance. I’ve seen Spanx leggings there before so I knew there may be a slight possibility. Well, I kid you not, after going through the checkout line for some tops I found for Josiah, I saw some leather peeking out from a go back rack near the window. After checking out, I went to investigate, and although the leather I first saw wasn’t the Spanx leggings, I looked behind that pair and y’all, these shiny, pebbled faux leather Spanx leggings were hanging pretty. IN MY SIZE and everything. I hurried to the fitting room, slid my way into those pants and boom. It was a done deal. And 60% retail!!! The rest is history.
Ways to Wear Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
There are SO many ways you can wear these leggings. The most common way I’ve worn them is for casual outings. Throw on a nice pair of gym shoes (or Cole Haan kicks for me), a long top & denim jacket and you’re good to go!
This day, I wore them to church and during our family time afterwards. I felt great all day.

Well, as you can see, my Spanx faux leather leggings have been on HEAVY rotation in my wardrobe the last few months, and with good reason. I just feel great in them! I believe you will too.
Also, I’ve seen this specific pair on sale for 30% off recently! They’d be worth checking out.
So tell me, have you tried Spanx leggings?
If so, what are your thoughts?
Looking forward to hearing from you guys and hope you have a great weekend!
