The last few weeks I had been looking forward to hitting the gym, after all the running leading up to the London marathon it was great to go back and do some weights and workout classes.
On Friday the 26th April TLC Sports, asked me if I would like to try out a piece of their revolutionary Figure Firming and Tummy Control Range leggings. Perfect timing to be asked!!
I browsed their range the figure firming fold down bootlegs style caught my eyes immediately, they also did them with a 32 inside leg, perfect!
After receiving a confirmation email on Friday afternoon I was amazed when the post man delivered them then next morning at 8.50 am.
I was really looking forward to trying them on.

What I thought of the Figure Firming Fold Down Bootleg:
The first thing I noticed when opening the package, was that they felt of a really good quality material. A lot heavier than I expected, certainly compared to my usual workout pants.
I tried them on to see if they did make you look a size smaller. I wriggled myself inside them and they felt great, holding my legs, bum and tum all in place, wow I was impressed, they do make you look thinner!!
On Wednesday I ran to the gym in them. I only usually run in Lycra leggings and these felt good to run in, holding everything firmly in place. Body combat was hard work and I really liked wearing these bootleg workout pant for this class as kicking your legs about feels loads better with a bit of support. I am very impressed with them and they are the sort of thing I would go for. I love them, they make you look a size smaller, feel more confident which is a great thing. A 10 year guarantee sound great on a pair of workout pants, I get loads of wear from my normal leggings but none have ever lasted 10 years!!
For me I think they look great in black, I would have loved to seen the bootlegs in a different colours too ~ Red, orange, lemon, turquoise are all colours I would have gone for first as I am a huge colour fan, maybe this is just me though?
The class was full of women this morning and they all had black workout pants on but something that gives you confidence and makes you feel good would be even better in a range of colours?
I wore the same pants a few days later and noticed they keep their shape and do not go bigger around the knees like my usual workout bottoms, which is great. They do take slightly longer to dry once washed though, perhaps to do with quality?
And free delivery over £30-00
They have some wonderful sportswear on their website and some beautiful dresses.
About this review- I got sent a pair of the figure firming bootleg pants for the purpose of this review, I was not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest opinion…
* The top is just to show my figure in the workout pant, I usually wear a baggy t-shirt for training 🙂 hehe…
