Wye Leggings in a New Improved Fit and Fabric!
Our fab leggings in a classic black.
Athleisure wear but make it ethical and sustainable! These full length leggings have a beautiful matte texture and are so thick and soft! High waisted with a thick waistband panel, gusseted crotch for comfort, performance and movement.
The waist band/hip/thigh have been tightened slightly following your feedback, so that they stay up even better when wearing/running/squatting! Your normal size will therefore now give a more supportive, compressive fit. If you're after a looser more relaxed fit then size up.
We've switched the fabric from bamboo to Tencel as while bamboo itself is very environmentally friendly, the process of turning it into yarn is very chemically intensive so we wanted to step away from using it. Tencel is a very similar fabric but made in a circular system that recycles more than 99% of all chemicals and water used. Fibres are produced from the sustainably sourced natural raw material eucalyptus wood - which like bamboo uses little land and water, and doesn't need pesticides. It has a soft feel on the skin as well as strength and efficient moisture absorption.
64% Tencel, 12% Elastane, 24% Organic Cotton Mix

There are good and bad things about these leggings. First of all, they are not an activewear material but a softer cottony material. So they're not for the gym but great for working from home and some non-sweaty yoga. They have a nice high waist and the thick material makes them nice and cozy. I would have given them four stars apart from the fact that after wearing and washing them a few times three holes have appeared and are forming ladders like in tights! I don't know if that's just a defect in my pair, or if it's a problem with the quality of the material. Now you can see patches of my dazzlingly white thighs so I don't want to wear them out of the house. So all in all, while they're comfy and cozy for indoor wear, they were disappointing based on the price and the quality I would expect form L&Y.

I've popped this response to your review as an email too, so that way you can reply with some photos and we can have a look and see what we can sort out for you!
We look forward to hearing from you!
I absolutely love them. The fabric is amazing and the fit is perfect. They cling around my tiny ankles which has always a problem for me. Can’t wait to buy more.
Super comfy, high rise is flattering and comfortable. Well worth the money!
Don't get me wrong I really love these leggings. I can tell that they're a really durable, strong material and I am all for the sustainability of the brand. I decided to just get some black plain leggings as my old pair needed replacing and I was hoping some day I could treat myself to some of the jazzier leggings with fun prints; but I don't think I will. Although Lucy and Yak is doing so so well in showing inclusivity in their models and sizes, for someone who is petite (5ft), it's frustrating not seeing myself represented, and the leggings fit being just ever so slightly off... I hope they consider this in the future as I want to avoid fast fashion but sustainable brands with petite ranges are hard to come by. I like my leggings but I probably won't buy another pair!
I'm between a 10 and 12 and ordered a medium. These leggings look great! Just a warning, probably not the best for lounging (or maybe order a size up if this is the planned use?). The quality is good and there is no sagging. I like them!
