Girlfriend Collective LITE vs. Compressive leggings review

Girlfriend Collective LITE vs. Compressive leggings review

Hi friends! It’s been a long time coming, but after extensive testing I’m excited to finally share my thoughts on Girlfriend Collective’s LITE leggings.

The LITE leggings are the softer baby sister of Girlfriend’s classic compressive leggings. Made out of recycled fishing nets rather than recycled water bottles, the material is thinner and more breathable for higher impact activities.

The website has mixed reviews, so I was apprehensive myself about springing for a pair—but Girlfriend generously offered to send me a pair of LITE leggings to test out since so many of you were asking about them!

I believe that conscious consumerism can be even more impactful when we approach it with an anti-racist and intersectional feminist lens. Shopping BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Color – more context here) and woman-owned brands helps supports these communities in a world where wealth and power are mostly centralized in the hands of white men, while supporting more ethical practices.
