The Zazzle leggings are custom made by Art of Where, a print-on-demand production house based in Canada. They do an amazing job! Each pair of leggings is printed before being sewn, allowing for fun designs on every square inch.
Medium weight fabric is sturdy, yet breathable, stretches to fit your body, hugs in all the right places and bounces back after washing. You can wear your leggings over and over and they won’t lose their shape. Check out their awesome process, sizing guide and materials here.

Here is an example:
Let’s start with Redbubble: both the black and the nude cloth can be seen through the fabric. I really like the Redbubble leggings, though, because they have a very soft touch on the skin, like silk. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they’re manufactured in China, hence the silkiness? 🙂 Like I said, I don’t mind it being a bit more sheer; the silk-like quality and the cooling effect on the skin compensate for the loss.
Let’s see how Society6 performs through the test. Looks like in both cases, there is a see-through… In all honesty, the Society6 fabric is a little bit thicker, but the spotlight really brought out all the details. If you wear some boy shorts with a low cut leg, or nude color bikinis/thongs, then you should be fine. But I still would advise caution if you plan on going yoga all the way at the studio.
Here’s my analysis on the Zazzle leggings. The fabric is positively thicker than the other two competitors. The black cloth underneath seems to still come through, especially because of the lace, not the black color. But then again, who would wear some bulky shorts under tight-fitting clothes? The nude colored fabric strip is barely visible, and that is because I brought the spotlight very close and I stretched the fabric to the max. Otherwise, I could not see it. I personally tested boy shorts under the leggings and there is no see-through. So these are the shorts I would go for if you are looking for a combination of sportiness and casual, namely… ATHLEISURE.
