Review // Gymshark Slounge Wear

Ah Gymshark, my seemingly favourite brand if you look at my blog. Half my sport wardrobe is sectioned off to Gymshark, and I was beyond gleeful when I saw their campaign for the Slounge Wear collection. 
The collection comes / came (selling out is Gymsharks forte of course) in three colours, and I'll be honest when I say the colour I got was the last one I wanted. I logged in to the site four minutes after the release and was shocked to see the other two colours (grey and taupe) had already sold out in my size. 
I had seen several of the athletes advising to size down to stop the material from going baggy, so I opted for an XS and checked out. 
The Slounge leggings came to £28, which seemed fairly reasonable considering the price of their other collections, so I paid the price and waited rather impatiently for the delivery. As I've previously mentioned, their delivery can be quite hit and miss, so I was nicely surprised when these got delivered to my work within a few days of ordering them. 
Now, down to the knitty gritty. 
The pro's are that they are incredibly comfy, flattering and are actually pretty squat proof (I wouldn't wear these to the gym, but if I ever wanted to then, you know, I could). 
I didn't realise these weren't full length when I purchased them (are all the athletes short or what?!) which was a bit of a shame, as I don't like my pasty white ankles being on display, but since these are only being worn around the house I don't mind too much. Thankfully there is not bum contour in sight on these leggings, and they are made of a super stretchy material so that you can lounge in front of your tv in peace.
A size XS on me is a bit snug on the waist (I'm a S in all other clothes, and a size 8 in jeans for reference), but I'm expecting them to loosen off after a few wears an washes. 
Overall, I'm pretty happy with this purhcase for it's comfort and fit, but I probably wouldn't buy the whole collection if / when they are restocked.
