I recently came across activewear brand Spitfire Petite, which by the name you can guess is proportioned to fit petite women. I was super excited to try their Core Performance Petite Long Leggings in Black Mesh.
The one issue I always have with long leggings is that they are always too long on me and i wear an XS. When it comes to length, I'd say this is my best fitting pair. It would probably fit perfectly if it was an inch shorter, but it's definitely shorter than my other pairs of leggings. I absolutely love mesh leggings, since they are fashionable and keep you cool at the same time. These are now my favorite pair of mesh leggings since the mesh inserts extend up the leg. The breathable mesh inserts are also thicker than the mesh I'm used to wearing. This makes it less likely to snag while putting them on, wearing them or throwing them in the wash. The heavier-grade high-flex fabrics also make these leggings perfect to stretch in and wear in the fall or early spring.
The toning power mesh reinforced waistband really sculpts to my core, and I can keep running without having to worry about my leggings falling and having to constantly pull them up. There is one detail that is key for me: it has a back zip pocket. It's the perfect spot for me to keep my key in.
I go jogging at night, so during the summer where it's more breezy and less humid, I can wear these despite the heavier fabric. I usually just wear these leggings with a sports bra and tank top but this would also be perfect to wear with a t-shirt or sweatshirt. Overall, these leggings are fashionable, functionable and comfortable for working out or for on-the-go travel, running errands or walking around the city.
Spitfire Petite also specializes in pieces for tennis and golf. They also sent me the Grand Slam Racerback Tennis/Workout Tank to try out, which I plan on doing a fall tennis shoot with. Spitfire Petite is currently having a summer sale of up to 50% off, so it's a great time to stock up on activewear and try out their pieces!
Thank you to Krystal of Krystal Pratt Productions for another amazing shoot, who made this all happen during my lunch hour! She captured a great workout session on camera!
