I first saw the brand in TJ Maxx but was deterred by how inexpensive the leggings were. I decided to give them a try one day and fell absolutely in love with the Floral Stitching High-Waist Leggings.
Evolution and Creation Review: Floral Stitching High-Waist Leggings
I chose this pair because of the high-waist fit and the beautiful design. The print stood out against the smokey grey. I wanted to test and see if the pants were worth the $16.99 price tag or more.
#1 Size: I tried on the leggings in a size medium in-store at and found that the medium fit me best. I wear a size 6 in lululemon for reference. I would recommend sizing up in this brand. When I tried the small, it was noticeably tighter and also stretched to white. Some of their leggings only come in a size small, medium or large.
#2 Style: EVCR creates high waisted and medium rise leggings. Their leggings also come in both long and crop length. They sell tanks, tees, long sleeves, and shorts as well.
#3 Inseam: The inseam of the pant measures 26″ from crotch to leg opening. They are similar length to lululemon High Time pants. I would categorize these are 7/8 length pants. I am 5’5″ tall for reference.
#4 Rise: The rise is very high. The waistband covers the navel and sits 1.75″ above my navel when worn unfolded.
#5 Waistband: The leggings come with a tall waistband measuring 5″. I am 5’5″ and the leggings seemed uncomfortably high. They would be perfect for someone with a long torso. I prefer wearing the waistband folded over for a medium rise fit (see photo below).
- Fabric Content: 85% Polyester, 15% Spandex
- Fabric Feel: The fabric feels exactly like Inner Fire fabric and is thick, smooth and soft. However it is not eco-friendly like Inner Fire.
- Fabric Performance: The website doesn’t give details about the product. Here’s what I found out while wearing EVCR.
- Quick Drying – leggings were quick to dry after a wash.
- 4-Way Stretch – The stretch allows the pants to contour to the body for a flattering and slimming fit.
- Opacity: The leggings passed the bend test! They are 100% opaque (not see through). The leggings are white backed but I did not experience any stretching to white in the size medium.
- Fabric Features:
- No waistband pocket
- High waistband and can be worn low.
#7 When to Wear: EVCR makes leggings, tanks, tees, long sleeve tops and shorts.
#8 Cost: EVCR is affordable with leggings for only $24.99. They can even cost as low at $16.99 at some retailers such as TJ Maxx.
#9 Gusset: EVCR leggings come with a single layered, triangle shaped gusset.
#10 Stitch Seam: EVCR uses flat seams on their leggings for a chafe free and flat fit.
#11 UPF Protection: Not disclosed.
#12 Made in Mexico.
#13 Care Instructions: I was concerned with the colors bleeding because when I turned the leggings inside out, I saw color had bled onto the white (pictured below). I prefer to wash my EVCR leggings in cold water and hand to dry on a drying rack. I hang to dry on a foldable drying rack such as this one.
Should I Buy Evolution and Creation?
You should buy EVCR if you’re on a budget. Otherwise, I would recommend investing into brands that are eco-friendly and made with more natural materials and dyes. I like their wide variety of designs but EVCR is definitely a company that offers cheap activewear at the cost of our environment. Fast fashion is fast but not always good.
