A next-to-nothing legging for your toughest workouts. Lightweight, quick drying, and made from recycled fishing nets, LITE was made for all those heated workouts like hot yoga, cycling, and picking up trash on the beach.

Every legging from our LITE collection helps remove 2 lbs of waste from the oceans and donates a percentage of sales to Healthy Seas.  

28.5" = Full Length
23 3/4" = 7/8
19.5" = Capri

Charlie is 5'8", a size 8, and wears an M. Shereen is 5’5”, a size 0, and wears an XS. True to size with an 11" rise. Meet your new favorite fit. View our size chart.

Lost and discarded fishing nets make up an estimated 46% of all ocean plastic. We work with Healthy Seas and ECONYL® to turn that and other waste into LITE (83% recycled nylon, 17% spandex) an ultra stretchy, soft, and sweat-wicking material. How do we do it?

Pretty but not sweat stains

Pretty but apparent sweat stains on the pink blossom legging. The compressive is way better. Initially thought the lite high rise would be fine for light exercises but it’s too thin for me. Go for the compressive leggings instead. Wish they made blossom in the compressive legging!

Wine is Purple!

I’ve been looking for a pair of skin light leggings for a while, as i have a pair of the original compression leggings and they’re SO HOT and not breathable at all.. it’s like wearing plastic around your legs. However the lite ones are PERFECTLY breathable. I got the colour Wine and expected more of a red but alas they are actually purple.. which disappointed me initially but they’re fine. A red/burgundy would be lovely though. I also rock climb and after one session just from my thigh having rubbed along the wall there’s already so much fuzz and fraying happening.. also a super sad moment because of how much I adore them! Thanks Girlfriend :)

love them, but they pill

love how these feel!! they are sooo comfortable and if feels like youre not wearing anything. so smooth and soft. the only issue is that they pill. a lot. ive washed them only about 4 times and there is a lot of pilling around the butt area, which is really sad. i make sure i never put them in the dryer, but they still pilled. the normal compressive ones dont pill from my experience.

Love the ethos, not the leggings

I'll preface by saying I LOVE the sports bra I ordered with these leggings, but I don't think I will order another pair of bottoms. I feel like I'm between sizes; the size I have is uncomfortable for me, but the bigger size is too big. Maybe with more wear it will stretch a bit. I also find the material to be really shiny (I have a black pair) which doesn't take away from the quality of the legging, it's just not my preference.

on my third pair however...

these leggings are the most comfortable pair i've ever owner in my entire plus sized life. they feel like a second skin. i didn't think it was possible to wear something so harmless and well fitting, especially not for my body but they're here! i loved my pair in blossom so much that i decided to take the plunge and buy two more pairs in black. i'm not sure if the dye alters the texture or if it was just my pair but they are much much stiffer than my pink pair. they fit alright but they are nowhere near as soft and silky as my pink ones. both black pairs are like that which is really disappointing since the texture is what motivated me to purchasing more. i kept them because i bought them but just be aware that the black leggings may not feel the same as other colors
