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.
- Fabric Content: Spandex Blend
- The fabric is thin and see through. I wore bright red underwear underneath to prove this point (please see the photo below). I would recommend wearing nude underwear to solve this issue.
- Fabric is very durable and abrasion resistant.
- Will stretch with wear, so size down.
- Fabric is not white backed nor printed. It’s knit into the striped pattern.
- The fabric
- 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. In summer I wear it with a mint green or light grey ribbed tank. It looks super casual and trendy. I get tons of compliments. I do feel guilty, like I’m wearing counterfeits. But does that even matter? It really shouldn’t.
#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!
