These New Seamless Leggings Might Just Be the Comfiest Pair I’ve Ever Worn
Cuyana — a brand we love for its cozy alpaca wraps, chic leather travel accessories, and philosophy of “fewer, better things” — is always building its timelessly classic wardrobe for women. So it was only a matter of time before co-founders Karla Gallardo and Shilpa Shah tackled a streamlined black legging, and allow me to break the news that they are so delightfully comfortable.
Made in Portugal, the second-skin-like Seamless Leggings (cuyana.com, $95) have a thick-banded high waist and are crafted with a silky-soft and breathable stretch polyamide fabric. Unlike the brand's popular Ponte Legging Pants, which have elevated details like ankle slits, the Seamless Leggings are also refreshingly simple — no fancy stitch patterns or mesh inlays, just a lovely back-to-basics black legging that fits like a dream.
The style is also available as a long short (cuyana.com, $65) — just in time for the bike short trend that’s taking off for spring. Either pair can easily be worn from the street to the barre studio to the airport.
Both bottoms are part of the new five-piece Body collection, which also has a set of three bodysuits — all of the well-made basics every woman on the go needs. Each piece is offered in sizes XS/S, M/L, and L/XL, which is a true testament to the adjustability of the fit and the stretch and weight of the material. Consider those winter — and spring, and summer — layering woes conquered.
While the new line is meant to hug the body in all the right places, Shah was quick to note that it’s not shapewear in the traditional sense. The fabric has a just-right amount of compression so that it flatters without any discomfort — a perfect compromise.
