Disclaimer: I received a free pair of LuLaRoe leggings in exchange for this honest review. However, this review is just that: honest. All opinions are my own and not influenced one way or the other.
Before I ever held a pair of LuLaRoe leggings in my hand, my opinion was mixed. I had seen many women sporting them, swearing they were the best things ever. I’ve never been a big fan of printed leggings on myself. I think they look fine on other people, but they just weren’t for me. The only LuLaRoe leggings I ever saw were loud prints, so that was automatically a deterrent to me. I was also thinking this whole LuLaRoe craze was just that – a craze – just another trend that would come and go, and surely was only popular because everyone wouldn’t quit talking about it. I was intrigued and wanted to try them, but wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $25 on a pair of leggings I may not like, so I just held back. I thought I was happy with my $7 Walmart leggings and $12 Target leggings. I thought we were friends.
Then my sweet friend Melinda asked me if I had ever tried LuLaRoe and if I’d be willing to do a review on them in exchange for a pair. I was excited about this opportunity, but let her know that I really would prefer a solid color or a very muted print so that I could give them a truly honest review. I also knew I’d want a pair that I could wear all the time in the fall. ‘Tis the season for leggings and boots, right?! She picked out a lovely pair for me, and the rest is history. The second I pulled them up, my first thought was: “Oh, how I wish I had these when I was taking Follistim.” Thus, the birth of this review:
5 Reasons Why You Need At Least 1 Pair of LuLaRoe Leggings If You Are Battling Infertility
1. Crazy Stretchy for Fluctuating Weight and Bloat
Whether or not you are going through infertility treatment, conditions that cause infertility often come with bloat and abdominal discomfort. If you are going through treatment, it’s inevitable that you will experience bloat. Clomid and Follistim made me retain a lot of extra fluid in my abdomen as my ovaries swelled, and at the time I was stuck buying maxi skirts at Target because jeans were no longer an option. If only I had these leggings back then. Having PCOS means that I don’t ovulate regularly like normal women, but when I do, it’s a big deal… not just excitement, but my body really hurts and bloats as much as 5 lbs. These leggings make those days much more manageable.
