Girlfriend Collective is a startup that makes the most flattering pair of leggings I’ve ever worn.
The Seattle-based company gained buzz for giving away free leggings on the internet in 2016.
They recently released a much-anticipated LITE line of breathable leggings that act like a second skin during tough workouts.
I put them to the test.
Their Compressive Classic leggings ($68) are made from 25 recycled water bottles each. Their LITE leggings ($78) are made from recycled fishing nets.

After a few years of kickboxing, yoga, dance, and distance runs three to four times a week, my closet is mainly Nylon-based. I have over 20 pairs of leggings in rotation, and a love of exercise, a job as a product reviewer, and a God-given ability to overheat in 30 seconds have all informed my strict guidelines for which ones are worth buying.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
