M&S’s new contour fit leggings are being praised for their ‘ultra-flattering’ fit

Planning to up your activity levels in 2019? Marks & Spencer have just the thing to get you started. The high-street brand is tapping into our healthy new year objectives with the launch of their contour fit leggings, which are said to be something of a revolution when it comes to workout wear.

The leggings come in sizes 6-24, and are described as ‘ultra-flattering’, with ‘strategically placed printed Lycra to support your figure.’ According to M&S, they ‘flatten your stomach, slim your thighs and lift your bum, for a smoother silhouette’, and boosted confidence all round.

The technology used to create the leggings is clever stuff – not only do the cut and fit of the item suit the shape of your body, but they’re also made with breathable fabric technology and moisture-wicking properties, which means no matter how hard you’re spinning, running or yoga-ing, you won’t be soaked with sweat.

Plus, if you’re an outdoor exerciser, the light-reflecting logo aids visibility in the dark.

‘Have been looking for supportive high waisted leggings for HIIT classes, that kept lumps and bumps under control and that also didnt need to be turned up at the bottom…,’ wrote one five-star reviewer.

‘I’m 5ft 5 inches and size 16/18 bottom half. Love them. They’re not see through at all and I felt very supported. Only.slight negative for me was they have a slight shiny sheen to them. Would reccommend. Other colours please.’
