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 give you a quick Spanx Moto leggings honest review to help you decide if this Nordstrom bestseller it promises and more (17+ months later).
Shop The Look
There is a reason many women (and men) love Spanx lingerie. But one thing that resonates with me most is the smooth contour the brand delivers every single time.
So, it’s only natural that Spanx would expand its contouring technology to activewear leggings and pants. Honestly, I thought there was too much hype about it.
As a fashion blogger, I knew it would only be a matter of time before friends and family would ask about my opinion about faux leather leggings.
Over a year ago, I splurged on this pair of Spanx vegan leggings.
This post was originally sponsored by Nordstrom. I’ve recently updated the content with more information about these faux leather pants in this Spanx Moto leggings review.
And yes, these Spanx Moto leggings are the most expensive pair I have ever owned. Standing tall at a price tag of $110 on Nordstrom (although it is sold out as of the moment, you can check it out at Dillard’s).
If you’re lucky, sales of these vegan leather leggings are few and far between.
Spanx Moto Leggings Review
As with all things fashion, these Spanx Moto leggings caught my attention because of their rave reviews.
And if you’re looking for a more than average 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 amazing quality 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 EcoCare Seamless Leggings (available in Regular and Plus size)
For reference, I was 5″5 and roughly 135 lbs, and US size 4 (S), as of the original date of this post 01/2021
I am wearing a 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 run small.
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
The SPANX faux leather moto leggings feel great on the skin compared to other leggings I’ve tried. They don’t cause unnecessary itchiness or excessive compression.
As expected from SPANX, these Moto leggings have fabulous compression and smoothening effects. The first few times you wear these pants, you might feel tighter than usual.
But after repeated use, the leggings offer adequate stretch and will mold to your body. Best of all, they don’t ever sag.#win.
I settled on a Moto jacket and OTK boots for this look. I learned from living in Alaska that nothing beats staying warm and looking stylish (even at -40ºF).
CONS: Spanx Faux Leather Moto Leggings
- Sometimes, it 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 annoying center 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 returned to Spanx leggings (after spending my coins on less-deserving options). As the saying goes:
This compressive legging is not made for cold weather. However, with simple layering techniques, you can wear these faux leggings almost all year round.
Another worthy splurge is this BlankNYC moto jacket (no longer available in Nordstrom, but you can check it out on Amazon). 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 (similar), which is the perfect top for the faux leather leggings. And if these OTK boots look familiar, I got them in another color.
