What people are saying about it:
“For as long as I can remember, it has literally been my life’s mission to find dupes for “designer” labels/ hyped clothing brands, as most of them drop ship & buy wholesale for resale.
I had been on the look out for a good gray set, and I’m stunned at the quality of this set for the price. Honestly. I do not play when it comes to workout clothes because that’s one department you don’t want any slip-ups with non squat proof pants, lifting, non sweat absorbent material, etc. Also, I typically seek out pants that are a nylon and spandex blend that compresses the life out of me & keeps everything together during harder training days.
I’ve worn and washed this set 3 times since arrival, and every time I wear it, I like it even more. The pants offer a *slight* compression, but it doesn’t compare at all to something like the Gymshark Energy+ leggings, if that’s something you’re looking for.
But, to my surprise, the set is super absorbent, squat proof, & offers decently holds everything in place. I don’t think I’d wear the pants on intense workout days, but it’s literally perfect for those light and upper body days!! But, that’s a personal preference.
I added some photos of after a light workout. I did an hour workout on the stair master, and usually afterwards, I’m drenched in sweat and it’s visible everywhere, major “swamp crack.” The photos don’t do it any justice, my entire body was saturated in sweat, and it was hardly visible, if at all (bad locker room lighting)!!
The top is my favorite from the set. I LOVE unconventional sports bras. I was worried because I usually go for Mediums in sports bras, but since this came as a set, I couldn’t size up. 100% was not a problem. It fit perfectly.
All in all, after a few washes and breaking it in, I’m in love. I lowkey wish I hadn’t ordered this because now I’m so tempted to get it in every color 😭”

This high quality workout set seems almost unbelievable for the price, and yes, the price includes both the top and bottom (something we haven’t seen a lot of recently).

It also comes in so many different colors, from a classic black to a blue/black marble print! Check out this video from @teresalauracaruso sharing the outfit in one of the many viral videos about it!
What people are saying:
"I was honestly so impressed with this set! I'm 5'0 and very petite, so finding leggings that are high waisted AND hit perfectly at the ankle deserves a moment of silence. It's a ribbed soft material and it holds everything in to make your body look poppin. I believe I saw a review saying the leggings weren't the same as the ones pictured, but I'm pretty sure she was just wearing them backwards (there isn't any tag or indication of which one is the front/back). The Y shaped stitching is the BACK and the straight across stitching is the FRONT! Overall, really great set, comes quicker than expected, and I'm probably going to order it in another color too. Woooo!
Although others have some doubts about it, so we will let you decide whether they are worth they hype! “I honestly expected the quality to be a lot worse from some of the reviews. Yes, the leggings aren't super thick; if you stretch them you can definitely see through. However, I usually either don't wear underwear or wear a thong/seamless. My concern would maybe be if I did a lot of weights/squats; on those days I'll probably wear a pair of my nicer leggings because I don't fully trust the material. That being said though, they're really not that thin and the ribbed material helps make them seem more stabile. Also they're not the most shape-shifting, but I definitely didn't expect that for $30. I really like the bra, it's super flattering and supportive while still being comfy. I also expected the material to be a lot worse quality but it feels nice. Overall I'm excited to wear this to the gym because it is a really cute set. If you want something cute and functional without breaking the bank this is definitely a good buy, however if you don't have a pair of really nice quality leggings I would definitely invest in some just to supplement these”

What People Are Saying:
Positives: "Will be buying in more colors! Fit perfectly, squat proof and overall a great find on Amazon! The waist band elastic needs to be adjusted sometimes but not a huge deal. Butt scrunch is very cute!"
Not So Positives: "I am 5'3", 116 pounds, with 27" waist and 36.5" hips, I bought a size small in the colors Navy Blue, Tiffany Blue, and Grey Capris, and these are my personal observations.
Length: The normal length leggings are pretty long on me, there's a lot of extra fabric and it bunches up at the ankles, however the capris fit perfectly.
