Leggings in lovely bamboo mix fabric in a funky vivid Geo Print! 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.
As well as some leggings in recycled polyester (our Dustin and Codie styles), we also really wanted to offer some in bamboo because of all its great qualities:
- naturally and quickly grows without the use of pesticides or fertilisers
- uses minimal water and space in its growth
- bamboo forests absorb more CO2 than any other forests
- antibacterial and hypoallergenic qualities - helps prevent odours and irritation
- highly sweat absorbent and moisture wicking (pulls moisture from skin for evaporation)
- insulating and breathable - keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter
- requires less dye than other fibres to achieve colour
- less pilling (‘bobbling’) than cotton
- one of the softest fabrics available!
And because nothing is perfect, there are a few downsides:
- a chemically intensive process is needed to turn it into yarn
- takes longer to dry than other fibres as it holds more water
- it can be less durable than cotton so works best in fabric mixes
They're made of 64% Bamboo Viscose, 24% Organic cotton, and 12% Elastane

I absolutely love my leggings and wear them loads, but after about 4-5 washes, they are now bobbly, the fabric seems fluffier and the colours are fading. It's such a big disappointment because I adore L&Y and have no issues with any other piece, but these are the most expensive leggings I've ever bought and had hoped they'd last a little longer without fading or bobbles given they are better quality.
Knowing these are out of stock I feel a bit bad saying how good they are! I don't mean to rub it in, but they are very nice. Super comfy and such a cool print. Definitely worth keeping an eye out for in case any more become available!
These leggings are fun. I use them for chilling and running. They are super soft and look great on. Would love the plain black too :)
Amazing leggings, print is awesome, not see through either when you bend over! Lovely high waisted. Nice length too. I'm 5ft9 and they are perfect length. In love 🥰
