Sassy patterns like camo and faux leather — and they make my butt look good? Welcome to a world where Spanx does leggings.

Recently, the company based in ATL sent me four styles to try (disclaimer y'all, the leggings I received were complimentary). They included the Faux Leather Black Leggings, Active Compression Midnight Sky Leggings, Every-wear Hem Slit Very Black Leggings, and the Look at Me Now Green Camo Seamless Leggings. (The leggings can be ordered online or are available at spots in the ATL like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.) 

So, here's the verdict... My two faves are the faux leather and the camo seamless. I cannot tell you how many compliments I've received on both everywhere from yoga and spin studios to brunch. They both just look so unique and fit beautifully. But the other two pairs, although more basic, have also served me well. The compression leggings are some of my favorites for running, because I don't have to keep yanking the waist band back up. (They stay put.) And as for the hem slit option, they're just a darn good pair of basic black leggings.

With that said, one thing to keep in mind about all of the options is that they are Spanx. So, they will suck your wobbly parts in. And I'm AOK with that kind of a "fit!"
