LuLaRoe seems to have taken over my Facebook newsfeed. For about 6 months, I’ve been hearing people rave over the “buttery soft” leggings and comfy, modest tops. To be honest, a lot of the prints are a bit loud for me, but I was intrigued about the solid colored leggings and tops.
A few weeks ago, a LuLaRoe consultant had set-up a mini store in my local shopping mall, so I took the opportunity to check out the quality of the clothes. I’ll admit it – the leggings definitely are “buttery soft” but at $25, they’re not cheap, and definitely more than what I’m willing to pay for a pair of leggings. I also liked the Irma top (I like the modesty that the “high-low” hemline provides) but again, $35 is pretty expensive.
However, as a busy mom, I like the idea of having a comfy, easy-to-wear outfit that I can throw on quickly and still look put together, so I went on the hunt for a cheaper alternative to LuLaRoe that provided the same “buttery soft” feeling, but wouldn’t break the bank.
In my hunt for clothes similar to LuLaRoe, I visited a ton of different stores but I came up empty-handed. Sure, I found leggings. But they were either too thin, too loose or too tight around the crotch area, or just not very soft.
Then I turned to my trusted friend, Amazon.
Oh, Amazon, why didn’t I just turn to you in the beginning? You’re always there for me 🙂
Anyway, I was pretty excited to find leggings that are, in my opinion, exactly the same quality and feel of LuLaRoe but are less than half the price!
(I’ve also found cheaper alternatives to LuLaRoe dresses and tops, which you can read about here.)
And not only did I find the perfect LuLaRoe leggings dupe, I also found a cheaper (but just as nice) alternative to the LuLaRoe Irma top!
The LuLaRoe leggings alternative are by a brand called “Viv Collection” – you can find them here.
They’re only $12 a pair, so you can get 2 pairs of the Viv Collection leggings for less than the price of one pair of LuLaRoe leggings.
I bought a black pair and a dark blue and white pair called “Cracks in the Ice” (the first and third leggings in the image below.) I’m not usually a huge fan of prints, but I also love the print on the center pair.
There are a ton of different prints to choose from, including a variety of solid colors.
The LuLaRoe Irma alternative is by a brand called “All For You” which you can find here.
I’m a size small or a size 4, and these fit perfectly. The mauve was actually more of a burnt orange. It looks just like the picture, but I wouldn’t call that “mauve.”
*Update* – a lovely reader has also recommend The Leggings Depot as another alternative to LuLaRoe leggings. I haven’t tried them yet, but they look promising. Once I’ve received a pair, I’ll update this post with my thoughts.
