These black denim leggings, leopard print leggings and pin-point tight in the outfit photos were samples from No Nonsense sent to me for review. All samples are a size S and true to size.
Pin dot semi-sheer tight
The tights have a control top, which I like as it is less bulk than wearing tights and shape wear. The control is enough to feel under control, but still comfortable. The stay-in-place waistband does just that and reaches just below the waist. It does not cut in at all.
The pin points are woven in, not printed on. Thus, you have not to fear that they are gone after one or two rides in the washer and drier. The fun pin dot design makes for an interesting change at the end of the winter when spring is on the calendar, but not yet in town. The sophisticated pattern makes them easy to style and wearable for all ages.
The tights are slightly sheer which makes them perfect for the end of winter and fits most work dress codes. They cost $6.99. This price is about what one pays elsewhere for tights without out pattern and without control top. Thus, this No nonsense pin-dot tight is a great deal. I would definitively buy them. ❤
The No Nonsense black denim leggings have a faux fly (see first photo in this post) and faux pockets in the front, but real back pockets in the style of skinny jeans. I love this feature. You can still put your cellphone in your back pocket, but don’t have the extra bulk in the front that you have with skinnies. Another plus: They are super soft which makes them ideal for traveling. They are barely to distinguish from skinnies which makes them a comfy weekend item too.
The No nonsense denim leggings are 78% cotton, 19% polyester and 3% spandex. They come in different lengths and styles including capri and cuffed. They cost between $16.99 and $19.99. The price-performance ratio is great as the price-per-wear will come down to less than a dollar easily despite they are a weekend item as they can be styled for a variety of occasions like hitting the mall, going to the movies, visiting the farmers’ market or a night on the town.
Printed cotton leggings
The animal print makes these No Nonsense printed cotton leggings easy to style. They are 78% cotton, 38% polyester and 5% spandax for holding the form. They felt comfortable when I wore them for dance practice. They obviously have the right amount of cotton needed to not sweat in them like a pig,. Thus, if you often feel like being soaked in sweat in your synthetics sport leggings, you should try out these No Nonsense cotton leggings to improve your exercise experience. Obviously, they also have enough spandax and polyester to not look like underwear when wearing them for a while. As is shown in the next two photos, they keep their form and don’t get “knee bags.”
Given that a leopard print is a neutral you will get a lot of wear out of them, not only at the gym, but also on weekends. They cost $13.99. Wearing them just once a week for a quarter of a year already gets the price-per-wear to a dollar, which is my criterion for a very good price-performance ratio on seasonal everyday wardrobe must-haves.
In summary: None of the No Nonsense items disappointed me. They are all great quality and have great price-performance ratios. In other words:
These No Nonsense tight and leggings are no nonsense.
I really love the black with white pin points tight and think about adding another pair in navy to my wardrobe for next fall. I highly recommend to try the denim leggings when you love the look of skinnies, but don’t like the bulk of the fly and pockets under your sweater, shirt or blazer.
Have you ever bought No nonsense tights or leggings? If yes, how did you like them? Do you also like their great choices as much as I do?
