I went to a LLR party and personally didn’t care for it.  Seemed cheap to me.

Eh I haven’t had too much luck with the leggings. I even was super careful to not put them in the drier and both of them ended up with a bunch of tiny little holes all over them. They do feel super soft but they are also super thin and don’t really work for me as anything but glorified pajamas/house clothes. 

The pencil skirt is nice however and I like that style (have 3 – 2 prints and a textured Teal) I also got one of the dresses and the arms are just super tight and ruin the rest of it for me 

 

I don’t generally find the shirts flattering I tried but it’s just not good on me

The leggings are cute for my daughters but they are like $21 or something. Which is ridiculous when I can get $5 leggings at Target. Because let’s face it, they will have a hole in them in a blink of an eye.

I have a few pairs of leggings and I love them. At first I was skeptical but when my sister gave me a pair they were so comfortable I was hooked. 

I love wearing them to my hot yoga classes. They are lightweight and don’t give me muffin top like my lulus do lol. I really haven’t worn them in ‘public’ much, I tend to wear them to lounge in on the weekends and to my yoga classes like I said…as far as the patterns go, I’m picky about which ones I buy. I try and go for the solid ones or ones that aren’t super kitschy. There are patterns out there that aren’t obnoxious, you just have to find them and be quick!

futuremrss17 :  I fell down the rabbit hole for LLR fast and am pretty obsessed. I’m wearing a Carly dress right now that’s made from the legging fabric and it is so chic, comfy, and pretty. I previously lived in a very hot climate, so I didn’t own any leggings. I now have 4 pairs (2 solids, 2 prints), 2 Irma’s (need to get a soft fabric or else can be a bit weird), 2 Randy’s (size up 1or 2), a Classic (don’t really love, no butt coverage), a Nicole (twirly and fun), and…I think that’s it. I actually think the price and quality are worth it. I’ve bought dozens of $10-15 shirts at Old Navy or Target and they always look and feel as cheap as they are. I always feel really pretty and confident in my LLR. I’m also someone who owns 95% black and grey clothes, but some of the prints are so cute or pretty I’ve become a convert to color!

I have a good amount of LLR items (several perfects, a few classics, a few Julias, a Sarah, and a half dozen leggings) and I think I’m ready to call it. They are not worth the price. 

 

I personally don’t think the items are terribly expensive and I would happily pay the prices if the quality was up to par. I’ve had a few pairs of leggings get holes, the sizing is really strange, and the shirts seems to age poorly. The leggings sizing seems to vary based on country of origin, this may just be a rumor, but I have pairs of leggings that are a few inches longer than other pairs of the same size or fit snugger. I think you are much better off purchasing other brands for less, or upgrading to Zella for the best leggings ever.

I have a few pairs of leggings, but I didn’t care for the dresses. I tried every style and they all seemed cheaply made.

futuremrss17 :  I have a pair of mustard colored leggings (super soft and I wear a 16 jean and found the OS fit me just fine), two irmas (one size small and one size lg that I wear all kinds of different ways. I usually knot the large one to fit me better but the length makes it very versitle.), and my Fiance just surprised me with the Sarah cardigan and I am now obsessed with it! I typically don’t spend $20+ on leggings but the tops are usually right around what I pay in department stores. The cardigan was just on my wishlist and he surprised me with it when his sister had a LLR party. I probably wouldn’t have ever spent $60 on a cardigan for myself but I have to admit that I really really love it.

I’m oddly addicted even though I sew and could probably make better quality items for less money.  I think the fabric is lined with crack.  But here I sit, over 40, wearing a Carly and leggings with cats on them.

I think they’re super overpriced. I can’t tell you how many of my casual clothes I’ve purchased from Old Navy this year only to have people ask me if it’s LLR (specifically solid color swing style tops). I went to my first LLR party last week because I refused to buy from an online sale when none of it’s returnable.

I tried on and bought two pairs of solid leggings because they were comfortable. That being said after wearing them, they’re not worth $25. They’re super thin feeling, too thin for me to feel comfortable wearing them out of the house under anything but a dress. Don’t get me wrong they are insanely comfortable for wearing around the house but for $25 I can buy my high quality athletic leggings that actually hold me in and can we worn in public. I also bought a shirt and while it’s comfy I regret paying what I did for it.

I tried on almost every style of clothing at the party and almost all of it I found ill-fitting and cheaply made. I was most excited to try on the Amelia dress but once on it was super duper unflattering on anyone who was not a toothpick. Those pleats from the waist….holy moly not good!

My biggest hangup is that I think the prints are all ugly. The prints they use in their ads are misleading and I’m convinced they are magical unicorns…they only exist in their ads. Seriously though….I’ll see a print on a dress or top used on the size chart and think it’s super cute yet everything I see actually for sale is so ugly I wouldn’t be caught dead out of my house in it.

starfish0116 :  This is how I feel.

My cousin is a representative, and I love her, but honestly I think she looks ridiculous most of the time she is wearing them.

raindrop101 :  Thank you!!! This is how I feel!!! I admit that my style is certainly a bit more preppy but even when I showed up at my friend’s house for the party and she’s wearing leggings and this giant oversized shirt. She looked fumpy and like she was getting ready for bed!

I have a Nicole dress that i am 100% obsessed with.  It is so comfortable.  I get so many compliments in it.  It drives my husband wild 😉 and I can wear it in a variety of settings since it’s so modest!!  I am definitely trying my hardest not to spend all of my money on their products, but I can’t wait to buy a Julia too!!  They are expensive, but it’s totally worth the money, especially knowing you’re helping out a friend who works from home!

futuremrss17 :  Super overpriced but I love mine still! I prefer the leggings over the clothing. I’m in Canada and my friend in Oregon sells them and unfortunately the duty isn’t worth the price for me. For Canadian ladies – I love my Sweetlegs also!

I was super skeptical at first, but after seeing a Nicole on one of my perfectly-proportioned friends I felt the need to go to one of the parties.

I – well, and all of my work friends – am hooked. Whatever anyone says about the leggings, they are super soft, amazing, and 100% opaque which is perfect. And $25 is definitely a decent price for a pair of leggings considering what I would pay at VS. Otherwise, I wear the cheap ones from Target and frankly they kind of suck and are only good for under dressses. I can wear my LLR leggings with a shirt or sweater and not feel self conscious. I will say I am firmly in the camp of solid colors only for myself, but a lot of my friends buy the prints and they look super cute. Black can definitely be hard to find, but I lucked out the first party I went to, and just found a pair on an online group today, so they’re definitely not impossible. Just have to look a little bit.

I also have a Carly, an Amelia, a Nicole, and a Julia. I’m wearing the Carly right now and LOVE it, it’s that comfy. I was skeptical about the price at first but will definitely buy another. I also am in love with my Amelia, and I have no issus with the price on that. I haven’t worn the Julia yet because I am a little self conscious about my hips in it (that was a peer-pressure buy), but I feel better when I wear leggings with it and plan to wear it to a rehearsal dinner next week. The price on the Julia is also fair. The Nicole I bought online so I guessed at the size – the arms are a bit more snug than I would like, but I love the cut, and it fits just not perfectly. That said, I definitely want to buy another, and would just size up one. The price on the Nicole is very reasonable to me. I tried on the Maxi which I *love* and is my next purchase, and the Cassie, which I *hate*. (The Cassie itself is pretty cute if you’re really thin and not so curvy, but if you have big hips or “hip dip” like I do it’s a definate NO because of the stretchy material, which is really too bad.)

The patterns can be really butt-ugly, but all the items I have are in awesome patterns, and I found a bunch more I liked last party I went to (I just had set a price limit for myself before I went!). You definitely have to look around a bit, but nice patterns aren’t hard to find. Honetly it also *really* depends on the consultant – my friend hosted an online party last week and the inventory was not good, so if that had been my first introduction to LLR I would have been really put off. So keep that in mind.

If you are looking to try, my advice is to start with a pair of leggings (they seriously are amazing – fyi I am between a 8-10 myself and am of average height and they fit pretty perfectly, although a tall and curvy wouldn’t be ill-fitting either, so I might suggest the tall and curvy for anyone tall). Only buy in patterns that you love. And (I know this is probably not super popular to say) I personally would skip the shirts most of the time. I just have a problem with paying 35+ for a shirt, so I tend to pass on those. That said, they are really cute, just if you’re a little iffy on price, probably not worth it.

Also I have to say, with the online consultants that I’ve worked with – they really bust their asses and are very responsive, which has been a huge plus. I have one friend who has ordered I think 10+ leggings at this point, and the first day she wore one of them they had tiny holes. She contacted the consultant who replied right away and let her know that that happens rarely, but can be a problem if the leggings were dyed/manufactured incorrectly. She refunded her right away, no questions or issues. So yeah, any brand can have its issues, but as long as the consultants are responsive and helpful, no complaints from me.
