About Scorpio Sol

Scorpio Sol is a TJ Maxx activewear brand. Their price points are very affordable and there seems to be lots of styles and silhouettes offered to the average active wear consumer. I would compare their fabric feel to Champion and Mondetta Performance Gear (MPG).

I found out about Scorpio Sol after a friend posted their lululemon Quiet Stripe (QS) dupes in a group. I asked her to ship me a pair so that I could analyze them and see if it’s worth buying.

Lululemon’s Quiet Stripe Wunder under crops are highly coveted and can cost upwards of $350+ on the reseller market. I would never pay that much so they have never appealed to me. If you want a close second to lululemon’s luon fabric, check out Glyder or Athleta.

Scorpio Sol Review

#1 Size: I tested a size SMALL. I wear a size 6 in lululemon for reference. The fit was initially comfortable and after a heated yoga class, the pants immediately stretched. I was tugging at the waist to keep it on. I would definitely size down in Scorpio Sol to an XS if you’re the same size as me.

#2 Style:  Scorpio Sol makes crops and long leggings. I’ve yet to try any of their long leggings.

#3 Inseam:  21″ and ends at my mid-calf. The legging opening does ride up my leg from time to time due to the thin and slippery fabric content.

#4 Rise: Standard rise sits just about .5″ under my navel.

#5 Waistband: Tall waistband measuring 3.25″. The waistband felt loose and unsupported around the waist. Every time I bent over, I could feel a breeze enter the back of my pants. I could go a size down and it would fit much better.

#6 Fabric:

  • Fabric Content: 
  • The fabric is thin and see through. I wore bright red underwear underneath to prove this point. I would recommend wearing nude underwear.
  • Fabric is very durable. Although it is thin, it is abrasion resistant.
  • Will stretch with wear, so size down!
  • Fabric is not white backed.
  • Will not pill or fade.
  • Lines match up in the front and back!

#7 When to Wear: Scorpio Sol is great for all workouts (high or low impact). I wear mine around town with a cute sweater. I get tons of compliments. I do feel like I’m wearing counterfeits though, but does that even matter?

#8 Cost: Scorpio Sol bottoms are only $19.99. Some women on the boards and reselling markets have even purchased entire stocks of the stripe leggings to resell at a higher cost ($40-50). I personally do not believe they’re worth the mark-up cost.

#9 Gusset: Scorpio Sol has a diamond double layered gusset.

#10 Stitch Seam: Flat stitch seams are used throughout the legging. Stitching is white.

#11 UPF Protection: UPF 15+

#12 Made in China

#13 Care Instructions: Wash with gentle detergent and hang dry. You can also tumble dry low. No fabric softeners.

Should I Buy Scorpio Sol?

I do recommend Scorpio Sol leggings. The quality of the leggings is different when compared to lululemon’s luon fabric or Athleta’s lycra. Those fabrics are thick but they also pill. I am stoked that my Scorpio Sols won’t pill, but bummed that they will stretch with wear. The price point is far below their competitor brands making them very affordable at only $19.99. If you’re a budget fashionista, definitely invest in some Scorpio Sol leggings. However, definitely size down.
