Upgrade your leggings to a pair of ethically-made, high-waisted leggings made from ultra-soft sustainable 4-way stretch fabric.

Meet the Minimalist Legging. A classic legging made from luxurious earth-friendly fabrics and sewn by fairly paid labour in Toronto, Canada.

These far from basic long, high-waisted leggings will become your travel and leisure must have. Never see-through, always comfortable. 

Available in Dark Heathered Grey (Bamboo), Smoke Grey (MicroModal), and Black (Bamboo or MicroModal fabric)

        • Black and Dark Heathered Grey Bamboo Leggings made from 66% Rayon from Bamboo | 28% Cotton | 6% Spandex. Black and Smoke MicroModal made from 88% MicroModal | 12% Lycra

          Bamboo is luxuriously soft and will not chafe. Derived from a renewable source, it is made with no wastewater emitted back into the environment. Dyes are azo-free and low impact.

          MicroModal is an earth-friendly ultra-silky fabric derived from beech tree pulp that is low impact.
        • Hand wash. Hang to dry is recommended. The Minimalist Legging may also be washed in a machine, but recommended to turn inside out before washing. IMPORTANT: Do not put in the dryer.

          More fabric care info here.
        • Fit Advice: The Minimalist Legging fits true to size. We recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes with your measurements. The Bamboo fabric on The Minimalist Leggings is stretchier than the Flipside Leggings. The MicroModal fabric is even stretchier, as it has 12% lycra for comfort, so we recommend always sizing down in this fabric. The Minimalist Leggings are pre-shrunk and will not bag out after wear.

            Model's Measurements: Monica, shown in the product shots is approximately 5'6" and a size 0-2 (XS), wearing size extra small in the Minimalist Leggings.

        THE MINIMALIST LEGGING FEATURES
        Comfortable high-rise waist.
        We design with the real woman in mind. The Minimalist leggings will hug your curves but the wide waistband won't cut into your body. The high-rise styling is versatile, and will keep all you want covered up. You can even fold down the waistband, if you prefer a lower-rise cut.

         

        The Minimalist Legging are well-made.
        Sewn in Toronto Canada using durable athletic-wear stitching, they are built to last. These leggings are made in Toronto's Leslieville area by a sister-owned sewing studio.  

         

        Soft and earth-friendly fabric.
        These leggings are made from a eco-friendly blend of Bamboo mixed with spandex for stretch. They are fully opaque - no see-through leggings here.

        WHERE IT'S MADE

        100% designed and made in Toronto, Canada, with love. The Minimalist Legging is sewn in the Leslieville area of Toronto, Canada. Once a busy hub of garment manufacturing in Canada, there are only a few small sewing contractors left. The makers of these leggings once worked for big name sportswear brands, and now focus on helping up and coming brands maintain ethical and local production.

        Sadly, I bought these in

        Sadly, I bought these in black and my usual size but they were in fact see through unlike the reviews said from other customers. The fabric was nice and felt quite comfortable, if only I could feel comfortable wearing see through pants.

        Super soft but not for me

        I was super excited to receive my minimalist leggings(and essential long sleeve) in the mail. Upon opening the package I was very pleased with the material and quality. They are amazingly soft! I immediately tried them both on. I ordered a size xs as it was recommended to size down(I'm typically a small) I should note that I am five months postpartum and still have a bit of baby belly to lose. As comfy as these leggings were the waist band did not flatter my figure. It dug into my belly fat and made my rolls much more noticeable. I decided to return the leggings(amazingly easy to do) but kept the long sleeve and actually ordered another!

        Every day wear leggings

        Former Lululemon addict now reformed. These leggings are fantastic. The bamboo is super breathable and feels far more comfortable on a warm day than synthetic material. I'm thinking they'll also be perfect for a light barre class. The rise is very flattering and is staying put.
        Will be getting another pair asap.

        minimalist leggings

        Beautiful, soft material. Very comfortable. I got them in the grey. They are very high waisted and though I usually wear a medium, in these a small fit best. I have worn them for yoga with the new essential long sleeve top, and it is a perfect outfit.

        Comfy and Long!

        I personally have very long legs and by the inseam measurement I was afraid they would be short for me, however, I was pleasantly surprised by the length! I read that you couldn't see through the material, so I assumed it would be a much thicker material, but they are actually much lighter than I expected and very comfy.

        43" 41.5" 41"-52" 33"-45" 44"-56" <6'0"

        Fit Advice: The Regular Chrysalis Cardi is a one size fits most garment ranging from sizes XS-XXL or 2-14. It can be easily belted in multiple ways, however the Regular is not recommended for petite or shorter woman due to the volume of fabric - See Petite Cardi. The Regular is also not recommended for curvier/taller women due to fabric pulling around the bust or bottom - See Maxi Cardi.

        We recommend watching the how-to wear videos to see how much fabric drape and length you would like in your finished garment. If you are in between sizes, it is best to size up and the garment can always be tailored shorter to better suit your look - you cannot add more fabric, unfortunately!

        The Petite is best suited for women 5'4" and under with a smaller frame, although it will also work on women above this height (depending on preferred length when styled). 

        The Maxi is best suited for all women under 6’0” with a curvier shape to eliminate any uncomfortable fabric pulling, although it will also work on women who are a bit less curvy (depending on preferred length when styled).

        *If you have any questions on sizing, please contact us - Remember it is best to provide us with your height and size range of garments that you already own!

        44" - 47"
        Inseam (inches) 26.5"

        Fit Advice: We recommend staying with your usual size if you are in-between sizes. The cut on The Dressy Sweatpants is more generous and the fit is meant to be drapey and slightly loose.

        24 - 31"
        24 - 31"

        Fit Advice: The Essential Long Sleeve Top fits a bit larger than our usual tees. We suggest to order true to your normal size, however since the styling is more flowy than our other Encircled tees, it is suggested to size down if you prefer a tighter look. As the fabric has a natural stretch, it will stretch to fit within ~1-2" of the measurements shown around the chest and hips.

        Hips 30-32" 33-35" 36-38" 39-41" 42-44"
        Fit Advice: The fit of The Evolve top is drapey but tapers towards the hip and tends to fit large. We recommend for you to size down from your normal size if you are unsure. The fabric on The Evolve top has a natural stretch that will stretch to fit within ~1-2" of the measurements shown. 

        The Flipside Legging 

        Size
        0 - 2 (XS) 2 - 4 (S) 6 - 8 (M) 10 - 12 (L) 14 - 16 (XL)

        28"
        28"
        28"

        Fit Advice: We recommend sizing up if you are in between sizes with your measurements. The modal fabric on The Flipside Leggings is not as 'taut' as synthetic fabrics like polyester, so if you prefer a snugger fit in the waist area for your leggings, size down. The Flipside Leggings are pre-shrunk.

        Fit Advice: The Retrograde Kimono Dress runs larger than our other Encircled designs and is our most "oversized" piece in the collection. We suggest to order true to your normal size to get the intended look. If you prefer a slimmer or tighter look, we suggest choosing a size down than your usual Encircled size.

        23"
        24"

        Fit Advice: The Reversible Pencil Skirt fits true to size, but it's suggested to size up if you fall between sizes. The pencil skirt offers a smooth silhouette that slightly tapers from waist to hips and down through to the hem, hitting just at knee length. A pencil skirt should smoothly skim your curves, so to get a perfect fit, first identify your largest measurement then choose the size offering that range while still allowing for some stretch. The fabric on The Reversible Pencil skirt has a natural stretch, that will stretch to fit within ~1-2" of the measurements shown.
