Go Buy Now: Zella Live In Leggings

Photos: Nordstrom
My friend Ange has been preaching the Zella’s gospel for awhile now. Last week, I thought I’d check it out and see if its worth the hype. You guys, it is.

Zella is Nordstrom’s activewear brand, and the Creative Director is the former Product Manager at lululemon. I do really love lulu gear, but my wallet doesn't always agree... and the Zella prices during the Anniversay Sale are unbeatable: leggings start at $28. Twenty eight dollars, ya'll. I'll just let that sink in for a moment.

I bought the live in legging in both black & grey, and a cute sports bra for good measure. My review: the fabric on the legging is a little different than the lululemon wunder under, but just as good quality. They’re thick, so they won’t be see-through when you’re in down dog, and they make your posterior look just as fantastic. Two added bonuses - 1) you can throw these guys in the dryer and it won’t destroy them; and 2) you can’t tell they are workout gear, so you can transition them from morning runs to layering with boots and a sweater at night. Maybe just wash them first.

Just to clarify: Ange and I don’t get commission (although we wouldn’t hate it) and this post is not sponsored by Nordstrom’s. I just can’t resist sharing a great deal.

Just get there by August 3rd.


  1. Ange is so smart. These are the absolute best!! I own a pair... but now that you're telling me about this sale, I may need to own more. #sorrybankaccount

  2. I've never tried Zella before--but I just did myself a favor (...ok, two favors...) and got me some. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. Tiffany! How do the sizes run? Similar to Lulu?

    1. Hi Natalie! They are S-M-L, which I think is different than how does lulu's sizes. But I think they're pretty true to size!

  4. Lovely leggings!! I love and prefer wearing leggings for my workout. Have purchased work out clothes too and find them really comfortable. Planning to buy these clothes for my friend as she wants to have new pairs now. Surely she will like them.
