    They are actually anti curves and don't want women of substance wearing their clothes. They are actively encouraged to ensure no large women are in their clothes

    That is awful! Is there a good quality brand out there with the opposite agenda?. I would like some new work out gear.

    Default Lorna Jane clothes... what is so good about it?

    I went to a LJ store in Brisbane last week and the sales assistant was a size 14 and looked amazing decked out in the gear.

    I def think it's overpriced but I'm another that loves the tights for the quality and comfort. They are thicker than other tights i own and have outlasted most of my Nike or Adidas tights.

    It is quite expensive but I buy on ebay, so much cheaper. Either I buy new from China, or I take advantage of women that spend up and don't stick it out at the gym.

    When I first started out I thought the prices were outrageous and bought cheap stuff.... and that's just what it was - cheap. I was gyming 5-6 days a week and the cheap stuff was rubbish. So I started building my LJ, Adidas and Running Bare (my fav brand) stash. I favourited them on ebay and only bought if they were going cheap. I have a lot of nice stuff I love the LJ crop crops, they have pretty backs.

    Moral of the story. If you are just starting out or don't get serious target and kmart may be ok. If you exercise a lot stick with quality. And the amount of women at my local gym that don't realise their leggings are see through Don't go cheap on those.

    Michelle bridges does up to size 22 I think at big w and I have found them great so far. I only use for Pilates but yeah it's great that she knows bigger girls work out also so it's worth supporting .

    Yep Michelle Bridges stuff is great imo. Infact I bought another pair today in a different color. They feel and fit great and for $35 a pair, cant go wrong!

    I was a size 14 when I bought my first pair of LJ tights - was very surprised I had to get a medium! I expected to be a large.

    I could never understand what the LJ brand did that my current (cheapie) tights didn't! I currently have the Michelle bridges tights and they are the most money I ever spent on tights in over 20 years! I've had them 8 months and they're still as new. Very good thick material and look good on. Before that I had numerous pairs of bonds and other home brands from big W, k-mart... All lasted me ages! So why would I spent loads just because LJ's are the 'cool' gym gear brand?

    I bought myself a pair of LJ tights last week as I was concerned my Michelle Bridges ones were getting a bit thin. Now here is my review of the two - both black non-shiney tights ...

    MB - great fitting, nice high/wide waistband and were comfortable to wear. Wore well while doing high intensity stuff, didn't ride up/fall down, showed the sweat alot - always left looking like I have wet myself

    LJ - very thick fabric, didn't feel like the rolls jiggled as much, high/wide waistband, very comfortable. Felt supported during high intensity workout (not as much jiggle) and the winner for me was I left drenched in sweat but it didn't look like it. The tights are wet to touch but I don't feel like I'm sitting in sweaty clothes and I definitely didn't look like I had wet myself.

    They both do a great job, both comfortable but I felt like the LJ offered more support and for someone like me that sweats alot at the gym, I like the feel of the LJ and definitely the 'dry' look.
