There are so many clothing pieces you can scoop from Nordstrom. A quick glance at the current bestsellers list will open your eyes to classic and new brands/styles arguably worth the splurge.
But one item that keeps popping up around the internet is the Spanx Moto leggings. So for today’s post, I’ll be giving you a quick Spanx moto leggings review to help you decide if this Nordstrom bestseller it promises and more (12+ months later).
Shop The Look
There is a reason many women (and men) love Spanx lingerie. But one thing that resonates with most is the smooth contour the brand delivers every single time.
so it’s only natural that Spanx would expand their contouring technology to leggings and pants. If I’m being totally honest, I thought there was just too much hype
noise about it.
As a fashion blogger, I knew it was only going to be a matter of time before friends/family would start asking about my opinion about faux leather leggings. Over a year ago, I splurged on this pair of Spanx leggings.
In partnership with Nordstrom, I’m sharing my thoughts about these pants in this Spanx moto leggings review.
And yes, these Spanx moto leggings are the most expensive pair of leggings I own to date. Standing tall at a price tag of $110 on Nordstrom. And sales on these leggings are few and far between if you’re lucky. At least you know you’re getting the real deal from Nordstrom.
Spanx Moto Leggings Review
As with all things fashion, these Spanx Moto leggings caught my attention because of the rave reviews it already had. Thanks, Nordstrom!
An if you’re looking for a pair of leggings that has a bit of character with all the contour that is synonymous with Spanx, you’ll love:
Spanx Moto leggings!
The Moto design on these leggings spoke to me. It has the perfect amount of edge that gives off a biker-chic vibe without being over-the-top.
Spanx leggings come in several styles. The most popular styles are:
- SPANX Faux Leather Leggings (available in Regular, Petite, Plus size)
- SPANX Faux Leather Moto Leggings (available in Regular, Petite, and Plus size) <- what I’m wearing
- SPANX Look at Me Now Seamless Leggings (available in Regular, and Plus size)
For reference, I am 5″5 and roughly 135 lbs. I typically wear a size 4 (S).
I am wearing a size small Regular, my usual size, in the SPANX Faux Leather Moto Leggings.
For this particular style, I recommend you get your standard size. This is unlike the plain SPANX Faux Leather Leggings, which runs small. Take advantage of Nordstrom’s free shipping and return policy and order two different sizes to compare the fit.
PROS: Spanx Faux Leather Moto Leggings
- Amazing compression
- Soft and non-constricting
- Size inclusive
- Opaque (not see-through)
- Built-in tummy control & butt-lift
- No pilling
Compared to some other leggings that I’ve tried, the SPANX Faux Leather Moto Leggings feels great on the skin. No unnecessary itch or excessive compression.
Just like we expected from SPANX, these moto leggings have fabulous compression and smoothening effects. The first few times you were these pants, it might feel tighter than usual. But after repeated use, the leggings will mold to your body. And best of all, it doesn’t ever sag.#win
For today’s look, I settled on this combination with moto jacket and OTK boots. If there’s one thing I learned from living in Alaska is that nothing beats staying warm and looking stylish (even at -40ºF).
CONS: Spanx Faux Leather Moto Leggings
- Sometimes rolls down (on the waist)
Although the legging does not sag as you walk, I’ve noticed my SPANX rolling down if not pulled high enough.
What about camel toe? Spanx has “reverse-engineered” their leggings to reduce/minimize the likelihood of getting a camel toe. How? There are no seams in that area!
And let’s not forget about the price. These faux leather leggings will set you back $110 apiece.
Are Spanx Leather Leggings Worth the Hype?
Yes, Spanx leggings are worth the hype… BUT that depends on how comfortable you feel splurging on a pair of leggings.
Trust me, I tried looking for a more affordable alternative but ended up making a full circle back to Spanx leggings (after spending my coins on less-deserving options). Like the saying goes:
This legging is not made for winter. However, with simple layering techniques, you can wear these faux leggings almost all-year-round. Another worthy splurge from Nordstrom is this BlankNYC moto jacket. And if you guessed it, BlankNYC moto jackets are also a top seller on Nordstrom :).
I love the buttery-soft feeling of the suede fabric. It is versatile and easy to wipe down stains. (Read: BlankNYC Suede Jacket Review).
I’ve noticed that over the years, most of the staple pieces I order from Nordstrom last longer than products from fast-fashion retailers. So I’m trying to be more intentional about the clothes I add to my wardrobe.
Another great find I’m wearing today is the tried-and-true Commando seamless bodysuit, which the perfect top for the faux leather leggings. And if these OTK boots look familiar it’s because I got them in another color. They’re just that good. Scoop up a pair before they sell out here.
And let’s not forget about this reversible Nordstrom tote.
