These flare leggings are 'super flattering' — and they're down to just $19

If you live in leggings, we need to talk. Rather than make do with the same pairs you've always purchased, why not trade up for a super-flattering style that's just as affordable and epically comfortable? Shoppers say Sunzel flare leggings are ultra-soft and comfortable, hugging them in all the right places (while binding in none). Fans report that these leggings make them look their best, thanks to a clever cut, high waist, tummy control and flattering flared silhouette. And sure, they look expensive, but looks can be deceiving: And right now, you can snag a pair (or three) for $19 in certain colors and sizes.

Shoppers laud the fit of these leggings, saying they provide plenty of coverage whether you're working out or just hanging out.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Sunzel Flare Leggings are a hot buy at Amazon (they're No. 1 bestsellers in some colors), are up to 35% off — the lowest they've been since April. You'll be able to snag a pair in basic black, the most popular color, for $19, down from $29. Many other shades are also available at a big discount, like dark gray and even bubble pink for just $20.

Why do I need these? 🤔

Fans say these leggings are soft against the skin, have just the right amount of stretch and offer light support in front. Made of a silky nylon-spandex blend, the leggings are easy to slip into and don't reveal too much, shoppers report — whether you're working out or doing chores, they stay in place and keep you covered.

A crossover waistband and V-seam add interest and contribute to a flattering fit. But what really impresses shoppers is the way they sculpt legs, lift the bum and accentuate the waistline.

What reviewers say 💬

Shoppers can't stop raving about the fit of Sunzel Flare Leggings, and nearly 14,000 have granted them five-star ratings.

Pros 👍

"I'm always skeptical when buying clothes that aren’t from name brands — mostly because the picture always looks different than what arrives," a reviewer admitted. "But I have been happily surprised by these leggings. They are super soft — the quality reminds me of the leggings I get from Costco. They're a buttery-smooth texture that just feels good on your skin. They suck in my tummy area. They have a great stretch."

"They hug my body in all the right places, accentuate my curves, and the high-waist tummy control is super flattering," agreed a second shopper. "An added plus, they are squat proof. Best leggings I've owned, compared to Victoria's Secret and Fabletics — I love love love and will be buying more colors. For the price, you can't go wrong."

"These are my favorite pants," said another customer. "I have them in multiple colors and I plan on getting more. Very stretchy and very flattering. I am 5 feet, 8 inches, 195 pounds and have ordered XL ... Good quality, thick yet breathable fabric."

One happy shopper called the Sunzel leggings "better than Lululemon 100%," adding, "So comfortable. They do not get linty at all and are very breathable but not see-through, so that's awesome. Totally recommend! Fits true to size."

Cons 👎

More petite shoppers may need to alter these leggings for the perfect fit: "The only problem I have is that they’re very long," said one wearer. "I'm about 5 feet 2 inches and I had to get them hemmed." They added, "That is not an issue with them ... It's more because pants have never been short enough for me. They’re very flattering, they go up high on both sides and hold your tummy well."

The leggings may also not be as functional as some hope: "They don't have pockets," lamented a reviewer. "Not a deal breaker, but a bummer."

These flare leggings are available in 27 different colors; prices vary depending on size and shade.

If you'd prefer a non-flared style, those are on sale too! We love these fan favorites from Sunzel:

With four-way stretch, these leggings make it easy to move comfortably no matter where your day takes you, shoppers say. A compression waist helps smooth you out and resists rolling down.
