Wye Leggings in a New Improved Fit and Fabric!
Our fab leggings in an amazing bright Taffy Pink.
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 waistband/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

I'll start off with the good part about these, they're incredibly soft, comfortable, flattering, they stay up, the fit is perfect and the colour is outstanding
However they are also completely see through (no matter what underwear you wear) but I kept them against my better judgement
Within a day they had bobbled between the thighs and on top (literally only wore these around the house)
Within a week they had a hole, God knows how
Within two weeks they were marked and they will not wash out :(
I really really wanted to love these as I love training and can't find any sustainable gym legging brands and I'm a huge L&Y Fan. I've been buying their products for over two years now but these leggings are such a big let down. Even on sale at £24 they're not worth it. I'm sad to leave a bad review cause so many other products have been staples for a long time, I wish these could've been too

I love Lucy and Yak leggings so much. They are the comfiest things I own and are perfect for lounging or at-home workouts. However they are very very see through. With these pink ones I don't even have to squat for my underwear to be visible. I still use them for lounging and home workouts, but if you wanted something for the gym or to wear out of the house, these are not the one!
These leggings are the third pair of L&Y leggings I've bought. Was too good to miss when they were in the sale. They're really comfy, same as the others. They are slightly see through if you wear black undies, but I usually wear them with long tops/ jumpers.
I LOOOVE the high waist. Lucy and Yak leggings are my go to faves.
'Wye' Tencel Leggings in Taffy Pink
I love these leggings for lots of reasons, the colour is bright, the extra wide extra hight waist is so flattering. They run a tiny bit smaller than the boiler suit (which fits me perfectly in the same size) but they're still comfortable. Unfortunately they are super see through. I can't really wear them out the house unless they're covered by whatever top I'm wearing.
Thanks for leaving us a review. We're sorry to hear you're finding the leggings to be so see through, though glad to hear you like the colour and high waist. However if you're not going to be able to wear these it's of course no problem to pop them back to us, let us know if you need any assistance with this at all!
