Hold Your Haunches!

I have tried and tried to get together a casual wardrobe.  I'm 34 years old now!  I need to be able to dress myself.  I'm great at business casual, lady lawyer, going-out clothes, cocktail and black tie.  However, I can't do cute casual day clothes to save my life.

So, I've given in.  I love wearing workout clothes.  And now it's a trend!  Athleisure! Hurrah!

When Hold Your Haunches contacted me about their compression leggings, I was excited to give them a try.  HYH provided me a pair of the Caboose Boost Capri to review.
 I feel incredibly awkward showing pictures of my own caboose on the intwerwebs, but it does look boosted.

The pants are multilayered- there is an interior shape wear layer, then a cottony top layer (it's actually polyester, but not shiny).

I loved the fold-down waist band- it kept my tummy nice and tucked in when I had it pulled up like so.

 Then, you can also fold it down without it being too obtrusive.  I look super excited about this.
 I think HYH should definitely make a maternity pair- I loved having anything with compression panels to support my belly when I was pregnant, and I adore maternity pants that come up and over like this.

My only quibble was that the capris were a little baggy/saggy in the knee and calf area.  I think this is because I'm short, or maybe I should try a smaller size.  Also, the pants are pretty pricey for this girl.  I will be interested to see how well they hold up.  However, if you are used to Lululemon prices, this is about the same, and not see-through, ha!

When I was walking into my exercise class, my instructor was walking in behind me.  She didn't recognize me from behind, because my rear looked teeny.  So that's a pretty good assessment of HYH's abilities- renders your hiney unrecognizable! Ha!

I am thinking about getting a pair of the long leggings- maybe they will be my gateway into pairing them with real clothes.  All I know is that they will be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner!

Also of note- I got a lovely little handwritten note when my leggings arrived- the lovely founders are two moms from Macon who likely feel my pain on the inability to wear pants with a button.

You can find Hold Your Haunches here- check them out!

Thank you to Hold Your Haunches for providing me a pair of leggings to review- all thoughts regarding the capris are my own.


  1. I want to boost my caboose! These look awesome on you. I have the same no-button preference as you. Thanksgiving especially!

    I need to move my "haunch" area up to my butt area, I have always had a flat butt and wish my haunches would move up, would these do that?


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
