Sportswear, but make it fun (and ethical!) (and recycled!)
Introducing our Codie Leggings - made from 88% Recycled Polyester (from plastic bottles) and 12% Elastane. Great stretch, silky soft fabric in a funky Black and White pattern!
Recycled polyester is great because...
- it saves plastic bottles from landfill or the sea
- it's super soft
- less energy is used to create polyester yarn from recycled bottles than is needed to create brand new polyester yarn from oil
But nothing is perfect....
- all polyester garments shed microfibres when washing them. To prevent this, use a guppy bag to catch the microfibres - we sell them at a small loss to keep the price accessible, get one here > guppy bag

I have these and the multicoloured wye leggings. The medium in both fit great (I wear a size 12), these are shorter in leg length which is better for me, as I don’t need to fold them up. Great for the gym and I love the fact that they are made from recycled polyester. Another fab product from L&Y 🧡
'Codie' High Waisted Leggings in Black and White Print
I’m sad to post such a negative review but i fell compelled to do so now. I’m on my third exchange of these ‘codie’ leggings and again the quality isn’t great. While the material is beautiful and soft. The first pair had uneven leg lengths (couple of inches different), the second pair i received had a curved back (bum) seam which twisted the pants and now the third pair (that i received today) has black marks transferred from the black stripes and stitching coming slightly loose. Sadly this has been a ongoing order since December 2019... and the print is so beautiful and the fit is so lovely to just give up.
I got these for work, and not only are they perfectly light and smooth for running around a busy shop floor, they also get SO many compliments! I must have told so many of my colleagues and customers where they’re from (and am normally met with shock — ‘I thought they only did dungas?!’ 😁
Really comfy and thick enough to squat in!!
