Zella Live-in Legging
In my opinion, the cut and design is equal to Lululemon’s, but there is a difference in the fabric. I haven’t purchased Lululemon leggings in years and still have their old luon wunder unders, where the fabric is super thick and opaque. (Before their sheer fabric catastrophe.) Zella’s fabric is quite stretchy and still flattering, and is definitely opaque, but it isn’t thick at all. As for sizing, I’ve found that the XS in Zella is the same as a size 4 in Lululemon.
I’ve worn a pair of Zella pants in this morning yoga video for legs, and this simple reversible pair above (now only $29!) have been worn for yoga and for cardio and have held up great. They do not ride up when you run or do yoga, and they absorb sweat pretty well. I would definitely recommend them, so long as you know the material isn’t super thick.
The best part of all of this is that it’s Nordstrom’s anniversary sale and there are lots of Zella items deeply discounted for a short while (prices go up August 4th, 2014). Here’s what I’m loving from the site (for reference, I’m wearing the ones on the bottom left):
Apparently I’ve been sleeping on Zella leggings, because all of a sudden they’re all I hear people talking about—especially one pair in particular, the brand’s Live-In High Waisted Legging. I’m all about the leggings life, but it’s hard to find a solid (by which I also mean “opaque”) pair that holds up over time, whether I’m lunging at boot camp class, running through an airport, or Netflixing on the couch. And although I’m beyond my $10 H&M leggings days, I also don’t love spending a silly amount of money on them. So when I heard about Zella, I was intrigued—and now that they’re majorly discounted during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, I think I need them.
These leggings have collected a total of 6,000 reviews on Nordstrom’s site—and you know how people review things when they either love or hate them? People love these. “Must haves!” one review raves. “The name LIVE IN makes total sense. I truly do live in these! My favorite part is the high waist because it…never falls or rolls etc. and also, the shape of the seams on the back?! Makes every bum look lifted and cute!”
“I’ve tried all (well maybe not ALL) brands of leggings—some of which specialize in athletic wear,” says another. “They were either too thin, sagged after wearing, didn’t have enough compression, drooped down, looked flimsy etc. This brand is the only one that didn’t have any of these issues.” Other reviewers swear they hold up after endless washes, rave that the seams stay intact, and love that they’re thick enough to provide coverage and to feel comfortable—as though you’re actually wearing pants—but not too warm.
Consider me persuaded to add to cart. The Zella leggings typically cost anywhere from $59 to $69, but they’re on sale for $38.90 to $45.90 during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Early Access. They come in sizes XXS through XXL, and the discounted colors are cute too: You can choose between a sporty black-gray gradient, a dark teal, or good old black.

Nordstrom shoppers, rejoice! The retailer’s Black Friday sale kicked off today, which means now is the time to buy the travel essentials you’ve been dreaming of for way less. The sale includes major markdowns on everything from handbags to luggage to comfortable shoes and so much more.
There are thousands of items currently on sale from some of our favorite brands, including this Briggs & Riley spinner suitcase that is currently half off and this Kate Spade tote bag that’s on sale for just $137, but one of the best deals we’ve seen so far is on this pair of top-rated leggings by Hue.

Made from a super soft and stretchy material, these comfy bottoms feature a light compression that keeps everything in place without leaving you feeling constricted. Customers especially love the high-waisted panel that won’t slip or slide down as you move around.
But their favorite part seems to be the fact that the leggings are not see-through, so they won’t turn transparent while you work out or run errands. With details like this, it’s no wonder that the cozy leggings have earned themselves an impressive 4.5-star rating.
“These might be perfect leggings,” said one shopper. “Band does not roll even with a tummy. Long enough in legs for taller women. Nice compression so they keep shape but not too tight. I think they would be great for an overnight flight. Can dress up or down. Runs generous/true in size… Great quality. Great price.”
“These are such soft leggings, I could live in them,” said another. “As a stay-at-home mom, I want to look put together but also be comfortable and able to move around. The material on these are thick and nice looking, and the material is nice and stretchy, but not see-through. I love the high waistband, as it seems to tuck everything in nicely.”
And the fact that these already affordable leggings are currently 50 percent off means they probably won’t stay in stock for long — shop them for only $18 below.

The Nordstrom Leggings With Nearly 6,000 Perfect Ratings Are on Sale Today

To say this pair of leggings has a fan following is an understatement. It would honestly be more accurate to say that they have straight-up groupies. To their cult following, this one simple pair is the end-all, be-all of the leggings game.
Nordstrom’s Zella Live In High Waist Leggings have nearly 6,000 perfect ratings from hyper-enthusiastic shoppers who swear by pretty much every aspect of their design. From the total opacity (yes, even when hitting those hard-to-reach yoga poses) to their gentle tummy and thigh control, reviewers are convinced this is the best pair of leggings they’ve ever tried.
The genius of the widely lauded Zella leggings lies in their simple yet thoughtful construction. A broad elastic waist panel provides almost shapewear-like support without being constrictive during exercise, and also features a hidden pocket big enough for your locker key.
The fabric composition of polyester and spandex wicks moisture away from the body, keeping you cool and dry, and thankfully stands up well to frequent machine washing. Available in Black and Dark Green, the leggings come in sizes XX-Small through XX-Large.
“The name LIVE IN makes total sense,” writes one reviewer. “I truly do live in these! My favorite part is the high waist because it smoothes my huge hips. Never falls or rolls and also, the shape of the seams on the back?! Makes every bum look lifted and cute! My tiny 17-year-old loved them, my 55-year-old mom loves them, and I love them. But be aware you won’t want any other leggings once you start on Zella Live Ins.”
While thousands of women are happy to spend the regular retail price of $60 on these leggings, today might just be the best day ever to add a pair to your own cart. Thanks to Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, running now through August 4, you can get the beloved Zella leggings for just $39.
Shop the leggings thousands of women swear by for just $39 at Nordstrom.com.
