TruDry active legging
The only pants I want to wear.
Honest! All my other pants are staying in the drawer ( or the laundry). These pants handle moisture like nothing else. Hot weather, exercise, whatever...they dry fast and are even comfortable to wear WET. I live in a hot dry climate and they keep me cool and good looking. Too bad they only come in black. White and gray would be so nice! EASY TO WASH (avoid washing with cottons, towels). Spindry leaves them virtually DRY...NO POINT PUTTING THEM IN THE DRYER. Hang them up damp. They dry faster than pantyhose and no signs of wear at all after 3 months constant use.

Didn't like the the feel or wear of these leggings! Not as good as the lesser price pair, which were great.

Excellent with MINOR exceptions
I purchased these pants online and it's important to note - this TruDry legging is NOT the same legging that they are selling in stores! My store - which carries a lot of active products, has capris, leggins, and full boot cut yoga pants - all black - but none in the TruDry. IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. Order the TruDry online. It wicks well, wears nicely, doesn't fade as quickly. Wash them by hand or on gentle.
The fit is fantastic - I ordered my usual size - 22/24 - fit with no issues. I could even pull them up above my belly button for more slimming coverage. :)
ONLY minor criticism - put a small pocket on the back of these pants for iPods/mp3 player/keys - when I'm at the gym and I'm wearing LB workout clothes - there's no where for my iPod but my bra! Which is a sweaty and unpleasant place for that iPod to be!

BEST purchase I've ever made from Lane Bryant!!
I have NEVER felt the need to review something from LB before; I am not often over-the-moon about the things I buy here. But recently I was in the market for some new compression pants or active leggings for gym/running purposes and could not find a plus size pair that I really liked. I tried on a pair of 100% cotton leggings in a Lane Bryant store and they fit perfectly but I am not a fan of 100% cotton (especially for working out because cotton fades too fast and is not flattering when fitted on my legs). The sales girl mentioned that online they sell active leggings made with TRUDRY material, which seemed to fit what I was looking for. I ordered 5 pairs when I got home and I can honestly say after wearing them that these are BY FAR the BEST leggings I have ever owned. Ever. The fit is incredibly flattering, even slimming and the material is light, perfect and won't fade. These are precisely what I have been looking for, for so long. They look amazing in so many different ways (wear them to work, wear them to a nice dinner, wear them to the gym, wear them around the house, etc). I washed on an easy care cycle and air dried - they stayed "like new" (I was worried about fray at the seams; LB has right fit career pants that notoriously do this but it did not happen with the leggings). I am absolutely in love with these leggings. I've never been so satisfied with a LB purchase before (and I've been shopping here for as long as I can remember). These are worth every penny even if you pay full price. SO SO SO SO HAPPY!!! :)
