    The high waisted capri fits like a dream. The material is thick and soft. Not overly stretchy but not constricting. So comfortable and flattering. The high waist keeps it all in and i would recommend buying these flattering leggings!

    With having a baby just barley 2 months ago, going to the gym and having to wear tight clothes was something I dreaded. I was incredibly excited for how high the waistline was on these capris. Not only are they soft and extremely comfortable, but they hold everything in! For the first time I wasnt self conscious or feeling like I had to suck in every time someone walked by. One of the best pairs of workout clothes I own. The pockets are a great bonus! 100% recommend them.

    I teach Barre and Yoga and am always on the hunt for great fitting yoga pants…..these high waisted capris are awesome!
    They are thick and and hold everything in very comfortably- yet not constructive al all.
    I don’t feel like I have to pull my pants up after every move.
    I LOVE the pockets on the sides! After the studio I always end up running errands, etc. in my yoga clothes. It is very handy to tuck your phone there so you don’t have to worry about losing it.
    I will definitely purchase these in all of the colors Airabella Active comes out with.
    I would highly recommend these capris❤️

    I am a yoga pant snob & these are so great. I love the high waist & that the fabric is little thicker. I did 2 leg days in them & they passed! The only reason I gave 4 stars is because I wish they came in a size XS. I’m 5’, 106 lbs with an athletic build. The small fit but I prefer my pants to be fit just a little more snug

    Received these pants last week and couldn’t be more in love! I already have a handful of Airabella Active capris, but the high waist is a MUST for mamas. I feel like it holds everything in and gives me a little extra support. I also love the addition of the large pockets on both legs. Holds my phone, credit card, etc. when I’m out walking (plus they bonus as little hand warmers). I also love the length – they seem a bit longer than my other capri’s from AA. They are just perfect!

    I am a personal trainer and have tried many many pants and these are bomb! They are now my favorite!! I am going to order another pair! I LOVE the high waist! They are the perfect thickness and I get asked about them every time I wear them. I’d buy these over my black LuluLemon pants any day!

    These leggings are incredible!!! I’ve wanted a pair for SOO long and they do not disappoint! Durable, yet soft. And fit like a glove, in all the right places.
    The pockets are big enough for my iPhone 7+. The mesh adds the perfect extra detail!

    I bought two pairs of these. One for my daughter and one for me. We both absolutely love them! The fit is perfection! So comfy and so flattering (both, a must in leggings!) We specifically bought these because they had pockets. We are both tennis players and we have been looking for leggings with pockets forever to hold the tennis balls. They are perfect to play in, but we love them so much we wear them everywhere else, too. One pair is not enough. We are definitely buying more.

    I have several of your capris. The high waisted capris are amazing!! Comfortable, not too stretchy, soft, and flattering. Love the pocket feature on both sides!!! You guys did great!! Can’t wait for more colors!!

    The fabric is dreamy. The high waist is super flattering. The mesh is super cute. A great pair of capri’s!
    Length is always tough for me with capri’s. I am 5’2” and 145 pounds. Ordered a medium, which fits great in every way except length. They land only a few inches above my ankle, instead of mid-calf where I would prefer.

    Everything you could want for this postpartum body of mine! Super soft, thick quality material. Just enough compression. And the pockets, oh the pockets! A+ Airabella 🙂

  14. Rated 4 out of 5


    These are great leggings. I have several pair from here and have always liked the fit of their mediums but wonder if a small would have been better because of the higj waste. I have a smaller length waste and this went up to my ribs and then some. I have several VS sport high waist pants and the waste isn’t as high, but I am a small in theirs. I’m 5’3, 115 pounds if that helps. Love the pockets. Material isn’t see through, but also not as buttery smooth as their other pairs I have. I feel they will last a long time. The details in the lines and mesh are great. I would recommend these as I have their others

    I love these high waisted capris ! The fabric is thick but still soft. These are super comfortable and very flattering ! I have a few pairs from Airabella and I think they are great but the pocket on these make this pair my favorite!

  16. Rated 5 out of 5


    I am really enjoying the feel of these capris. I don’t care for full length leggings and these are a good length. I’m 5’3” and am 120. The medium is a perfect fit. The high waist is what I normally purchase because it keeps it all in and smooths it out. They don’t fall down during cardio workouts and aren’t see through when bending over. They have the perfect amount of compression for me. I don’t care for the super compressive types personally. I will purchase more in hopefully different colors!

    Everything I could want out of a pair of high waisted capri’s. I cannot wait for these to come out in more colors. I am 5’3” and about 140 pounds and went with the mediums. I wore them for a 60 minute workout moving all over the place and they were perfect. They did not fall down during my workout, nor were they too thin of a material. I have several pair of AA Capri’s and these are my new favorites.

    I absolutely adore these capris. The fabric is buttery soft, and a little thicker than other capris out there. The extra wide waist is flattering. It holds you in, and also stays put during movement. As an instructor, I rely on great fitting clothing so I’m not constantly having to adjust while teaching. These capris fit the bill. A great value for the price!

    These high waisted Capri leggings are great! They come up high enough to keep everything looking smooth and have just the right amount of compression. I just had a baby a few months ago and finding clothing that makes me feel comfortable and look good while I work out and run around town, is so important to me! Plus the pockets are AMAZING! I just hope they make a full length version!

    Love these leggings! Buttery soft, and super comfy. I have worn them through HIIT and they stay in place the whole time! And absolutely love the high waste to keep everything in (after 4 kids, I definitely need it). The length is perfect (mid-calf). And pockets!! Big enough to fit my phone and it stays in place. And you can’t beat the price point! 2 thumbs up for these leggings for sure!

    Cannot boast enough for these amazing capris! I dislike most high-waisted pants on the market because they just don’t seem to offer enough support for newly post-partum mamas. This super soft material provides a firm, yet flexible and breathable hold and makes me feel super confident during my workouts. I use mostly for my vinyasa flow and love how the material doesn’t slide or shift when I’m adjusting my poses. I almost don’t want to take them off, but for this price point, I’m going to grab 2 or 3 more pairs so I won’t really have to! Please release more colors!!

    I have a lot of workout pants…. however I always find myself going back to this brand! I just counted the other day and own now 19 pairs of this brand! These high waisted pants are simply AMAZING! The material is the perfect thickness, squat proof and do not have to keep pulling them up! Added bonus the customer service goes way above and beyond making sure you are satisfied! Shipping is extremely fast! I highly recommend these pants or any others from this brand!

    This pants fit great! The crop was a perfect length for my 5’4 height. The pants were very high waisted, a bit TOO high waisted though. The top of the pants went waaay past my bellybutton, almost to my ribs. But I guess I would rather have them too long than too short and they’re sliding off, right! The waistband fit perfect once it was on but it was a bit tight pulling them over my butt and I don’t really have much of a butt, so I can’t imagine how hard it would have been to get them over a bigger butt. These pants are totally squat proof! No peeking through at all! Overall, these pants were great and I would like to get them in more colors as long as the waist band is loosened a bit!

    LVE them!! Sooo soft and the high waist stays in place! The pockets are the best! and things like my phone, fit perfectly!

    in love!! i’m a personal trainer and i pretty much live in activewear 24/7, so i have compiled a pretty large selection of leggings from different brands over the years . i have several from airabella active, and these are definitely my favorite! the high waist is incredible – it sucks everything in but doesn’t feel too tight or fold down awkwardly while exercising. the material is so soft and thick, and i am obsessed with the pockets! my iPhone 7plus fit well. i put these through leg day workout today – they’re squat proof and held up great! the little mesh detailing gives the traditional black leggings a little extra flair that i love. i’ll be buying more. for reference, I’m 5’5”, ~125lbs and wear a small.

    I absolutely love these leggings!!! I am 10 weeks postpartum so I’ve got a lot of belly fat that I needed tucked in and these did just that. When I first put them on I was a little worried because you could see my mom belly but then as the day went on they molded to my body… omg in love!! And the pocket is perfect and fits my iPhone X in my wallet MK case. I may purchase another pair!! Would highly recommend!

    These are FANTASTIC! I am tall and athletic and these fit me perfectly. I love love love the high waist, which is so comfy and does not cut in. The pocket is perfect and even fits my iPhone plus! I will be getting these in all the colors!!

  28. Rated 4 out of 5


    These capris have a great fit and feel. They are very comfortable and I love the high waist. At first I would say they run tts (I went with my usual small and they FIT perfect), but when I did the bend over test, and they were a little see through in the bum. Maybe this means I should have gone up a size, but then I think they would have been too big elsewhere. So, for me, I’ll only be able to use them for running outside, but not the gym, since I’ll worry about the sheerness during squats.

  29. Rated 5 out of 5


    These pockets are everything! I love the fit on my legs and how the pocket is just big enough to hold my phone snug when I’m on the go. I love the mesh details too! Great for HIIT workouts, I put them through two just to be sure they’re squat friendly ladies!

    The material is amazing! I don’t normally like high waisted leggings because I’m super short. I can easily fold over the waist on these and they fit great. The mesh & pockets make them stand out from the normal black leggings. I would like them just a tad shorter but overall they are amazing and I can tell I will wear them often.

    These capris are pretty great. Good fit, stayed put, side pockets, thick enough material to not be see thru when doing dead lifts. No problems during my job either!

  32. Rated 5 out of 5


    I LOVE these pants. I workout 5-6 times a week. I’ve worn them numerous times and the pockets are perfect! The material has some stretch. I sized up(normal a 2-4) I would say they run true to size. I can’t wait to get these in more colors( I’d love a hot pink)

  33. Rated 5 out of 5


    I’m absolutely in love with these Capris! You can absolutely tell they put a lot of thought into the design of these! Down to all the details! The side pockets fit my I phone plus perfectly. But most important I went on a run with them & they did not budge. No rolling down. Fit like a glove. But the TRUE test was in the gym. They ARE squat proof! 2 thumbs up in my book. I’ll definitely be buying more. Hopefully new colors are coming!

    I’ve owned a lot of Airabella Active crops, and a lot of active crops in general, but these might be the best ever! The high waist holds everything in, and they are so soft and comfy.

    I put my crops through a lot: grocery shopping, yoga, and Bootcamp! They held up great, and never budged during the high intensity Bootcamp workout. These are fantastic!

    All the yesses. ALL OF THE YASSSSSES! It’s official. These are now my new favorite leggings, and I have prob 7-8 Airabella leggings. These take win. True def of high waist. And a waistband that stays put, doesn’t roll or fold down. Totally squat and spin class-proof. Zero camel-toe in front! I wore these for the first time at a marketing event and those side pockets were PERFECT to hold my cell, cash, business cards. Super comfy all day. Knew they would be perfect for workouts. Wore them to spin twice this week. No problems at all. Enough hold, not ridiculously tight although could have smidgen more compression. But regardless, I love love love these! Can’t wait to order more colors!

    These capris are AMAZING! I wore them running this weekend and they passed the test with flying colors! The pocket on the side is perfect for a phone. My phone stayed put while I was running. The high waist helped them stay up too!

    These high waisted pants are AMAZING! I had twins 6 months ago and they are babies 5 and 6 for me so I’ve been looking for the perfect workout pant to hold me in in just the right places. These are exactly what I was looking for! The pockets are a huge bonus too!! I’m one happy mama!!!

    Love these! So comfortable and flattering! Perfect for my barre workout and lounging around the house after! LOVE the high waist!!

  39. Rated 5 out of 5


    I really like them! I’m tall (5’8”, 135) and wore a small. Rise came up past my natural waist and felt nice and snug. I wish the seam across the bum was a bit higher, since it hits me in an awkward place, but that’s just my odd body. Thick material making them squat proof!

    As if I didn’t love Airabella Active enough they went and put pockets in their pants!!! I wore these to work (I’m a personal trainer) workout (weights and I taught a piyo class) and they DID NOT move at all!!! I can’t wait for more colors!! I’m a size 8 and pretty thick in my legs and butt, I got an XL in these and they are just a tad big in the waist, I think I may get a L next time. Thank you so much for these awesome capris!!!!

    I love the fit of these crops! The higher waist is so comfortable. The material is perfect and feels really nice against the skin. I like the mesh design, and think these are on trend. I can’t wait to try them in different colors. Thanks for bringing quality, affordable leggings to us!!

    I am IN LOVE with these leggings! So soft and snug! I wanted to wear them through a variety of workouts before reviewing. So far I’ve done weight training, HIIT, running (sprints and Treadmill), Yoga, Pilates. They stay in place and don’t fall down. They are fantastic for curvey girls like me! Pockets are a MUST so I will be purchasing these in every color available (pretty please!). I am 5’4”/145lbs with most of my weight in my butt and thighs and these fit so well. I feel like I have an averaged size torso, but this size Medium comes up to my belly button which I love. My only issue is that they are slightly big in the waist for me. I am in between a small/medium and tend to lose inches come spring, so would recommend a small if you don’t have a big butt 😉 since they will stretch out a little bit.

    Love these leggings. I teach various fitness classes so need well fitting and long lasting leggings as I end up changing and washing clothes multiple times a day. The pockets are super handy for my mic pack and I love the mesh detailing. Despite multiple washes, they have kept their colour really well which is always a worry with black so I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another pair!
