Chill by Will Review: Beloved Striped Leggings

Chill by Will – Blessed Striped Leggings – Try On

I reviewed CBW’s Blessed Stripe leggings. I’ve been eyeing these leggings for a while. I had never tried CBW before so was hesitant on investing. I finally found these for only $64 on Carbon38, so I decided to give it a go!

#1 Size: I sized up in Chill by Will. Medium was the only size left in this print when I ordered it. I ordered a medium in the Blessed leggings and they fit really well. I feel like I could have also went a size down. I recommended ordering a size up in CBW if you want a more comfortable fit. If you want a more compressive fit, order a size down. I am a size 6 in lululemon for reference. After seeing he size chart (below) I would not recommend the medium for a size lululemon 10. It would be a tight fit!

#2 Style:  Chill by Will makes leggings (long and crop), bras, tops and long sleeves. I also own the Alive Bra (high neck with strappy back) pictured below, that is comfortable and goes with just about everything. Note: This is a low-impact/low-support bra without cups.

#3 Inseam:  The blessed pant has a 26″ inseam. It fits like a 7/8 pant, similar to lululemon’s High Times Wunder Under Crop. The leg opening sits 1″ above my ankle.

#4 Rise: The pant rise is high, measuring 8″. Back rise measures 9.5″. The rise reaches my navel. I am 5’5″ for reference.

#5 Waistband: Tall waistband measuring 3″. The tall waistband holds everything in. The ruched detailing is also very flattering and the extra fabric adds some compression around the waist.

#6 Fabric

  • Fabric Content: 88% Polyether and 12% Spandex
  • Fabric Feel: The fabric feels buttery soft and smooth. I would compare it to Dharma Bums and All Fenix fabrics.
  • Fabric Performance:
    • Fabric is thin and quick drying.
    • Fabric is not as compressive, making it great for low-impact sports. Could be more compressive if I sized down.
    • Fabric has 4-Way Stretch, allowing it to contour against the body for a slimming fit.
  • Opacity: The leggings are white backed and I’m glad to report that they’re 100% OPAQUE (not see-through)! I have loaded some forward fold photos below.
  • Fabric Features:
    • The leggings do not have any pockets.
    • There is one logo on the back left corner of the pant.
    • The waistband is ruched.

#7 When to Wear: CBW is designed by two moms. Their intentions were to create a brand that would blend into your lifestyle. The leggings are perfect for wearing to low-impact classes and while running errands.

#8 Cost: CBW leggings retail at $96. I was able to get this pair on Carbon38 for only $64!

#9 Gusset: The leggings come with a triangle shaped, double-layered gusset.

#10 Stitch Seam: Chill by Will uses flat fell seams throughout their leggings. This allows for a chafe free and body contouring fit.

#11 UPF Protection: Not disclosed.

#12 Made in the USA. Christina and Corrina have created a product that flatters all body shapes and sizes.

#13 Care Instructions: Instructions on the tag advises machine washing inside-out and hang to dry. I hang to dry on a foldable drying rack such as this one.

Should I Buy Chill by Will?

You should definitely buy Chill by Will! I love how buttery soft the fabric is. I would recommend both going with your true size (best compression) or sizing up (for low impact sports). I wear mine around town all the time and get tons of complements. It’s a great contrast to all my solid colored leggings. They’re definitely worth of checking out!
