I’ve gone through more than a handful of leggings that make some of these promises only to be let down two or three wears into it. After months of searching for the best pair, I’m happy to break this to you that the Zella live in high waist leggings is the only pair of leggings you need!

I’m one of those people who read product reviews before placing my order. So, I naturally scrolled to the bottom of the page to learn about the reviews of the Zella live in high waist leggings.

I was impressed that this single pair of high waist leggings had a record-breaking 4.5+ star review from over five thousand (5,000) verified buyers.

You’d agree that an amazing review like this is hard to ignore. I bought a pair of these high-waisted tummy control leggings during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I placed my order confidently, knowing that Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns on all orders. My only regret is not buying more than one pair of this Zella live-in leggings on the spot.

For reference, I wear a size 4. 130-ish lbs, 5”5, and 8.5/9 in shoes.

I’m not one to wear leggings to work. But I’m game when the leggings are thick and easily double up as a pair of fitted pants that are super comfortable.

I usually wear fitted pants with skinny legs like this Cuddl Duds fleece wear. Pants like these are not overly professional or super casual because they tread lightly between dimensions.

I work in a professional setting, and semi-casual workwear outfits are our norm.

No matter what pants I wear, I prioritize feeling comfortable, especially at work, at the gym, and on long flights to and from Alaska. Pulling and tugging on my pants is a distraction that can be counterproductive.

Zella live in high waist leggings review

I was hooked on the Zella Live in Leggings the first time I put it on. This legging is made of high-quality fabric (88% polyester and 12% spandex) to withstand a lot of tension. It is perfect for your workout and athleisure needs.

As I mentioned, I wear these to work with a beautiful blouse and closed-toe shoes (restyled here).

I’ve had this pair on repeat throughout the summer, and it has held up well. In my opinion, the Zella live-in-high waist leggings are the perfect all-around leggings that are versatile.

This legging and the Cuddl Duds fleece wear pants are my favorite pants for extended travel.

Living in Alaska means long travel/layover times and these two pants are the only clothing I feel most comfortable wearing on long trips.

The Zella live in high waist leggings does not peel, and it has excellent tummy control without being restrictive. This leaves your mid-region smoothly sucked in under your top.

The leggings are the perfect length for someone of average height and tall individuals. But those who wear petite sizes may need to get a minor length alteration to the leggings.

I noticed that the leggings stretch out a tiny bit after a few wears. But it bounces back to its original form after a wash.

I’ve gone through one too many leggings that stretch out and stay stretched out forever #soannoying.

What I really like about this high-waisted leggings:

  • Moisture-wicking feature
  • Soft and smooth wear
  • No roll, high waisted design
  • Non-restrictive, medium tummy control
  • Wide waistband to protect your rear
  • No-show, opaque high-quality fabric

But if leggings are not your cup of tea, then I recommend checking out the Betabrand yoga pants dress pants (read my Betabrand yoga pants review).

I know I said I do not have a favorite color. But here’s another pink sweater outfit for you! Sweaters with ruffles and exaggerated sleeves have been the “it” style for a while, and it looks like they are not going anywhere soon.

I was drawn to the pink cowl neck sweater (similar) because of the frills on the shoulder. The ribbed detail and generous sleeves made this sweater a keeper. Sadly, this hot pink sweater is an oldie from my wardrobe. This ruffle pullover sweater is the closest style I can find.

And the same thing goes for my taupe structured purse (similar).

Good news! My hot pink braided slide flats are available in 6 colors. It was a lot pricier when I ordered a pair a few months ago. I’m obsessed with this slides and love how well they fit.

Since I am an in-between size, I wanted to order a size 9, but it was out of stock. So I settled for 8.5. It fits snugly without being uncomfortable.

The suede is soft without looking cheap. And the braided bands are plush and comfortable to walk in all day. The footbed is lightly cushioned for convenience. If you like this braided flats, I suggest you make the purchase before Amazon decides to hike the price on them again.

I am wearing:
Nokia Activity watch (exact) 
Pink cowl neck sweater (similar)
Nordstrom Zella leggings (exact)
Structured purse (similar)
Amazon Fashion braided slide flats (exact)
