Everyone raves about the gymshark flex leggings and as a result it can be tricky to get your hands on a pair unless you are online as soon as they go live. So when I came across the myprotein seamless leggings which bare a striking resemblance to the flex leggings I thought they were worth investigating…
Material: 56% Nylon 41% Polyester 3% Elastane
Colour: Blueberry marl
Size: I wear a size S and am a UK 10/12 – they are very very stretchy
Squat proof: YES I always feel safe to wear these on leg day
Material: 57% Nylon 40% Polyester 3% Elastane
Colour: Marble Green
Size: I wear a size M – I wear a M in other myprotein leggings, definitely fit true to the size guide on the site
Squat proof: YES
Both leggings have two tone contouring and I have to say while the contouring on the flex legging is more flattering it’s not very subtle, I much prefer the contouring on the seamless legging which is still flattering but not as in your face!
The waist band on the flex legging is much tighter than the seamless but this could be due to the fact that I have a small in the flex and a medium in the seamless. The waist band on the seamless is therefore more comfortable.
Both leggings are low to mid-rise and I’m more of a high waisted kinda gal myself but these sit at a good point on the waist.
The flex leggings come in a much larger range of colours compared to the seamless. The seamless comes in 4 colours whereas the flex comes in 12 colours. That being said a few of the flex colours do appear to be very similar.
Both leggings cost £34 however myprotein frequently offer deals and discounts so if you wait for one of those the seamless would be cheaper.
These leggings are basically the same, I mean just look at the material they’re nearly identical! I just wish the seamless legging came in a larger variety of colours. Cost wise obviously the seamless is better as they are frequently discounted and also more likely to be in stock. However the majority of the flex leggings do appear to be in stock at the moment.
All in all I wouldn’t say one is better than the other, both are very good pairs of leggings. Personally I do prefer the seamless just because they are more comfortable on the waist but I’m not ready to put away my flex leggings for good just yet!
