By now I am sure you have all heard of the Girlfriend Collective leggings, right? If you have been living under a rock and you somehow missed them- I am so sorry.
Last year, a company called Girlfriend Collective popped up on my facebook newsfeed. It was a post by one of my facebook friends that said "Girlfriend Collective will send you a FREE pair of leggings (for the cost of shipping only) after you redeem the offer via email & share it on your Facebook page." To me, this screamed gimmick. I had already fallen for that damn black face-shredding mask (amongst other things) and didn't want to end up with another shitty pair of leggings for $20. But a few weeks later, my dear friend Ally (who also falls for every ad she sees, luckily) wrote in a group text how they were the best leggings she had ever worn. Coming from a yoga studio manager who literally LIVES in leggings, that is saying a lot.
I found the facebook ad and went ahead and "ordered" my free leggings. I quickly found out that this company was the bees knees. The reason behind the free leggings was because they believe that the best way to get to know a product is by testing it. Um, so true.
Not only did this company give away thousands of free leggings for the cost of shipping only, but they successfully diverted 6 million post-consumer plastic water bottles from going into the landfill. That's because each pair is made with about 25 plastic water bottles. Read about the other materials that go into these leggings here.
What my girlfriends collectively have to say is that these leggings are buttery soft. They are perfect for everyday wear-- whether that is to the office, to the gym, or a night out to dinner with your gals**. They fit and flatter every body type, as demonstrated by the babes above.
I am patiently waiting for Girlfriend Collective to announce their official launch date, but until then, don't judge me if you see me wearing these guys 4/7 days a week.
**note-- this is my German Village dinner crew and AT LEAST one of us is always wearing our GC leggings to din.
