Basic Black Legging Review: Joah Brown Lift Legging
thickness / see-through level / ustrasana effect
These fall on the sheerer side of the spectrum. You’ll definitely see colored or patterned undies under here. The gusseting is also thin such that ustrasana is in full effect.
longevity / pilling / fading
I treat these like my other leggings: wash cold with darks, hang dry. They’ve resisted taking on my funk even after teaching and taking many a hot yoga classes, but the waist has gotten a bit looser and I find myself having to scootch them up after about a year of weekly use. Good news though: no pilling, even though the fabric is super soft. The black is a bit faded to begin with, and hasn’t faded any more than in the picture.
support / activity
I like these for yoga and hanging out, but they aren’t supportive enough for high impact activities like running.
Fun fact: Joah Brown headquarters are right down the road in Carpinteria!
