Sukishufu Black Foiled Legging Review

When it comes to workout leggings, those black staple pieces are so yesterday. Today, the bright, colourful statement pieces are taking over health/fitness word. It was love for sight, when I was spotted the liquid shinning sukishufu black foiled leggings on nutritionist and cookery writer Madeleine Shaw’s instagram post. After a few internet searches, I soon discovered that this brand was worn amongst A-listers like Beyonce, Emma Watson, Rihanna, just to name a few…

After getting an offer from Sukishufu instagram post, I purchased the iconic statement piece from the brand – The leather back black foil gloss legging.

Since the purchase a few months ago, I’ve been wearing them in different occasions and feel like I have formed my thoughts on this.

The Brand…

When I first saw the name “SukiShufu”, I thought that was a Japanese brand.  I also find the name hard to remember, or is it just me?… According to Sukishufu’s website, the name “SukiShufu”was chosen to express Independence, Fashion and Good taste. Sounds good!

Moving pass the name, “SukiShufu”is an English brand for luxe sports fashion. The label uses the finest Italian fabric that aims to enhance your silhouette without sacrificing comfort or functionality.

The Price…

At a whooping cost of £95 a pair, I was first took back by the price tag. As it is marked as a LUXE sports able, the price sits  at the higher end of the scale. Fortunately I got a discount code I got (40%), from their instagram page, it became much more affordable.

The Fit…

As a reference, I am 5’2 around 115lb. I am in XS for most of my workout leggings. I first ordered XS, but it was way to tight at the waist band. Because of the faux leather panel in the back, it was not stretchy enough to get over my bum. I then exchanged for size S instead.

The leggings was slightly long for me as I expected, so there is a small gathering at the bottom but not enough to pull over the heels.

It is a medium raise at the waist. Unlike the fabletics leggings, for some reason, Suki doesn’t give me the muffin top, which earns huge brownie points from me!

Oh should I mention, it makes your butt look really good!

The Quality…

No complaints. The material is very thick and stretchy. It holds the shape really well after intense workouts and no see through situation during down-dog pose. It feels likes like wearing my own skin…

Versatility…

This is definitely one of my most versatile leggings… Not only I wear it to workout on the regular basis, I’ve also worn for night out with a pair of sexy heels. It is also a great choice for a casual everyday wear pairing with an oversized jumper and high tops… Because it is so versatile, I think it is worth the price tag.

Will I Recommend it…

Hands down yes!…especially if you can find a good discount code. I love my Suki black foiled legging. It has quickly become one of my wardrobe staple piece. I get so many compliments when I wear them. The material is very unique and the leggings are really well made. The versatility definitely justify the price tag, in my opinion.
