Two great brands of leggings similar to LuLaRoe but way cheaper! Tons of patterns so you can make these your go-to wardrobe.
Have you jumped on the LuLaRoe leggings craze yet? I am the opposite of trendy these days, but even I was intrigued by their claims of comfortable and buttery soft leggings. Then I saw the prices—yowza. That’s why I hunted the interwebs until I found leggings similar to LuLaRoe at a more reasonable price. Both brands below met the criteria for fit, style, and price.
My leggings dilemma
I love the thought of leggings. Throw on a pair with a long shirt and run errands, do chores, or referee the latest battle over one kid destroying the other’s Lego masterpiece. A versatile addition to my wardrobe.
In reality, I’ve struggled with finding the right pair. My body type holds most of my weight around the middle. If the leggings fit around my waist, they fit poorly around the hips and thighs. If they fit my hips and thighs, the waist gives me a muffin top.
And the worst part—when you sit down and the waist rolls down like a fruit roll-up, making you unroll it every time you stand up.
Or is that just me?

Leggings Similar to LuLaRoe
The waistband is not as wide as LuLaRoe leggings. The waistline comes up to the belly button with both brands, eliminating the fruit roll-up effect. The material is super stretchy so that it fits both my waist and hip/thigh area perfectly.
Leggings Depot and Viv Leggings sizing are similar with two different sizes. Regular fits sizes 0-12 and plus fits sizes 14-24.
You can get both these faux LuLaRoe leggings in full or capri length. I opted for the capri length for summer and plan to get the full length when the weather starts getting colder.
Both brands also have tons of patterns and colors, including the elusive black leggings that are so hard to find in LuLaRoe. Leggings Depot even has an American flag print that would be cute for the summer holidays. I opted for a black pair from Leggings Depot and a pattern called Rainforest Paisley from Viv Collection seen in the first picture below.
Both brands sell for $10.99-$12.99 on Amazon, depending on the style and pattern. Compared to $25 for a pair of LuLaRoe leggings, these are an awesome value.
Bonus—Jeggings and Office Leggings
Given my aforementioned body shape, pants, in general, are hard to find a good fit. Anything that fits properly around the waist is usually too loose everywhere else. This is especially problematic with skinny jeans.
While shopping for leggings similar to LuLaRoe I decided to look for demin leggings (jeggings) and office-appropriate leggings. I was a little skeptical when I found the brand No Nonsense, but I decided to give them a try.
The No Nonsense Denim Leggings come in dark denim or white in sizes small-xx large. I opted for the dark denim and went up a size from my normal to make sure they weren’t too snug around the waist. They fit great around the waist, hitting me right at the belly button and were not loose around the hips and thighs.
They are a thicker material and resemble skinny jeans with stitching down the seams. And to top it off, they have functioning back pockets.
The No Nonsense Ponte Knit Pintuck Leggings are a great alternative if you work in an office environment. They are black with a pintuck seam going down the front of each leg. I went up a size from my normal on these as well. They fit differently than the denim, so they were looser around the hips and thighs. I don’t mind this for an office environment, but if you want a snug fit I’d recommend sticking with your normal size.
Both the Ponte and denim leggings are $14.97 each.
