Varley Review: Kingman Tight in Black Camo

I have owned by Varley Kingman tight for a year now and the silhouette is still in production to this day. The first things I noticed about the brand was their quality. The fabric was so soft yet durable. I tried them on and fell in love almost instantly. It was about time I reviewed them!

#1 Size: Varley runs true to size (TTS). I recommend using their size chart and going with your true size. I am a size 6 in lululemon and wear a size small in Varley for reference.

#3 Inseam: 27″ inseam allows the leggings to be worn over the heels and looks very slimming. I wear my leggings bunched up at my ankles.

#4 Rise: The leggings have a high rise. The opening of the leggings sits above my navel.

#5 Waistband: The Kingman tight comes with a tall waistband measuring 4″ tall.

#6 Fabric

  • Fabric Content: 70% Polyamide/30% Elastane spandex blend
  • Fabric Feel: The fabric feels thick yet super stretchy and soft. I usually try to find a fabric to compare but I am having a hard time thinking of one. The closest might be lululemon‘s Full On Luxtreme (fabric used for All the Right Places pants).
  • Fabric Performance:
    • Quick Drying
    • Dry Wicking
    • 4-Way Stretch
    • Very durable! will not pill or easily snag.

    • No pockets
    • Breathable mesh panels in the back of the pant.

#7 When to Wear: Varley is for working out, lounging, running errands and doing everything in between.

#8 Cost: The Kingman tight costs $110 USD. You can use coupon codes I’ve listed at the bottom of this page for a better deal.

#9 Gusset: Varley does not offer a gusset in their leggings. The seam is + shaped and constructed with a flat fell seam. It has been worn more than 10 times and feels sturdy.

Should I Buy Varley?

Varley products are for life. The quality is excellent and the fabric is super soft yet  has a lot of stretch and is opaque. The leggings are very supportive for all sorts of activities. I love the subtle camo print on these pants that prevent the leggings from looking too plain. I will definitely buying more Varley in the future.
