About Boody

Boody makes sustainable apparel from viscose derived from organic bamboo. The Australian based brand uses sustainable materials to create minimalistic apparel for men, women, and children.

Bamboo fabric is super silky and has the ability to regulate temperature, keep you cool, is good for all skin types, and will never lose its shape. Best of all, it’s super sustainable!

Boody Review: Activewear Leggings

I received the Blended High-Waisted Full Leggings ($72) and Racerback Active Tank ($37) top to review in this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own and 100% honest.

How do Boody leggings fit?

Boody runs small compared to US brands. We recommend referring to their size chart to find your perfect fit.

We opted for a medium after reviewing their size chart for leggings. I wear a size 6 in lululemon, which is equivalent to a US size small. The medium fit perfectly!

And if you’re in between sizes, we recommend sizing up in Boody.

What is the inseam of Boody leggings?

The pants are ankle length, but you can find Boody leggings in short, crop, full, and active length.

The Active Blended leggings have both an inseam and outseam.

What is the rise on Boody leggings?

The leggings have a high-rise fit. The front rise measures 9.5″ and back measures 10.5″.

How tall is the waistband on Boody leggings?

The tall waistband measures 5″ so it may be a very high fit for certain people. I am 5’5″ so it sits 2.5″ above my navel. If you’re shorter, then it may hit your rib cage and the fit may be uncomfortable.

There is also a top waistband seam that allows for a stay-put fit.

Should I Buy Boody Leggings?

Honestly, if Boody had never offered leggings for us to try, I would not have found out about them. I am SO GLAD they reached out to us to collaborate on this review.

The Boody Blended leggings are some of my favorite black leggings. They’re not see-through, comfortable, compressive and SUSTAINABLE.
