There are two types of women in this world: Those that wear leggings as pants and those that freak out if you suggest leggings as pants. I fall in the first group. I am a southerner through and through and we rock leggings as “winter” wear with our boots and slightly long shirts. And this year? This year the ‘year of the legging’ has arrived. I am seeing them EVERYWHERE and from every brand. Personally I have decided that I am light years ahead of most and the rest of y’all are just catching up to what I already know:
All that said, not EVERY brand of leggings is worth shimming into for the day. And actually some are scarily thin, break up in the wash, and I am pretty sure the reason so many people think leggings cannot be worn in public. Those people are wrong. They are buying wrong. I want to show you how to buy RIGHT when it comes to the Souths winter pants and you should kick it off with these: Mantra Leggings by Satva.
Now you may or may not have heard of Satva.
I originally found out about them when they messaged me asking if I would be interested in checking them out. While I totally missed the summer crowd, we circled back around when fall hit and they were kind enough to send me a pair of Mantra Leggings.

Is Organic Important to you?
At Satva, organic means quality. From the seed to the shirt, we understand and celebrate cotton made from eco-friendly, non-GMO bio-ingredients. We take an all-natural approach to cotton cultivation, allowing Nature to take its own course and develop self-sustaining ecosystems that encourage biologically diverse agriculture. This eliminates groundwater contamination and toxic air pollutants. It avoids exposure to any chemicals and fertilizers for our farmers and for you. Our ingredients are the heart of our product – they lead to better quality cotton for your clothing and higher yields for farmers, fostering a better quality life for all. You don’t compromise your principles – you demand quality thatis not achieved by chemicals or genetic modification– and so do we. By choosing organic you are making a statement that both can and should be possible! You will have beautiful, extra-soft cotton that feels good on your skin. Material that moves with you, not against you. Fabric that is free from all chemicals, heavy metals, and allergens for people with sensitive skin, children and babies – those most vulnerable to health risks.
What you will love about Satva Leggings: Unlike many cheap leggings on the market that are meant to really just last a season, I found that the Satva leggings were super high quality, thick, and have maintained their stitching and coloring through at least 10 washes with no sign of wear and tear. These leggings also hug your curves AND hold in your stomach fairly well. I have had a C-Section and my stomach is not flat. That being said these are the ONLY pants in my closet that when I wear them my husband remarks that I look like I lost weight. The patterns are also bright, pretty, and perfect for fall. Plus the material is non-GMO, supports educational opportunities to young girls and agricultural advancements to organic cotton farmers, and is completely chemical and allergen free.
Other products you can expect from Satva: You can also check out their organic capris, shorts, scarves, dresses, and yoga material.
