I was perusing my millions – ok, not millions – hundreds of FB groups and I came across a post that Walmart (WM) had some really soft leggings. So soft, that they are just about Lularoe (LLR). But not only that, they have Christmas and holiday prints, too. And look, it’s online for $5.88! What? That can’t be, I say to myself. I’ve heard people claim that Walgreen’s leggings (which I later did buy and wearing this second) were just like LLR, but that isn’t case. They are decent for $3-5 but I can tell a difference and they are not “just like LLR.” Even so, but my curiosity did peek in regards to these WM “sueded” leggings for 3 reasons:
- I wanted some holiday leggings. This preggy mommy lives in leggings. For those in the know, you know that holiday leggings from the $25+ legging company is practically impossible for reps to get and even more impossible for a Lulalover to get. You fight with hundreds or thousands in a group for them and you most likely need to be the fastest of fingers. One group I was in sold raffle tickets for a chance to get picked to buy one AND if they were picked, they were going to pay the invoice and get one mailed to them without them knowing what holiday print they have paid for (only the size of OS or TC) until they open it up in their home. Uhm, ok great. What crock of bull for $25+. There’s so many bad prints. If that was me, knock me over the head and have me pray I do not get the leggings where Santa’s head or hand is coming out of my nana area. Yeah, you know the nana area. The WM holiday prints people were sharing were prints I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to wear – yes, way better looking to me than the $25+ holiday leggings.
- These WM sueded legging lovers online insists they really do feel the same and probably easier to get to at my local WM. WM sueded leggings were completely sold out online but that didn’t hinder from reading the reviews and telling me more why they are sold out. The reviews confirmed more that they felt just like LLR. What?!!! Instagram posts on #walmartleggings were few, but enough did mention that their #Lulafaux has held up nicely since purchasing them last year. This is more than what I expected for something $5.88.
- I have spent enough money on LLR in the last year. My closet already had similar things and the ones I did get, I saw similar items in stores for much less. I love the hosts of the parties I bought them from, to pieces. I love my friends who sell them (I even refer people to their FB sales groups often). I love the feel of most of the clothes. And the prints I do have, I think are pretty nice. I did get most my items on sale price/discount and I wear most of them, and 1 was free: Irma tunic ($35), 4 pairs of OneSize leggings ($25, $10, $12.50, FREE), Sarah duster cardigan ($40), and a Julia stretch midi dress ($35). My daughter has 2 pairs of LLR leggings in Kids ($15, $12.50) and 2 Dot Dot Dresses ($35, $20). Those in the know, you see I got some deals but still, as time went on after I made those purchases, i realized and saw that that money spent could have gone further.
Especially now, after coming across these Walmart Sueded Leggings at $5.88 each:
Video description from my youtube channel:
Your store might actually have plenty despite it being sold out online or their store locator/inventory checker say Sold Out. I went to 2 Wal-Marts and they had plenty.
When they are not sold out, you can find them here:

Good luck searching and happy shopping.
I have LLR and A&D friends who I love and adore and if you are looking for a rep for either one, I would love to refer you to them.
My intention is to not steer away from the “original.” Everyone is free to do and spend and buy as they please. My goal has always been to help people look good, feel great while helping people stay within their means and even become debt free while at it.
For the frugal and saver, saving in itself is a boost. You don’t need to be told twice to go check these leggings out at WM. If you’re like me, growing the savings after getting out of debt is the biggest boost ever. I did have a bit of buyer’s remorse after getting my LLR at those 2 popups I went to but I comforted myself by saying it was towards a good cause or friend, which was true. I also did tell myself that the other stores I buy from are not my friends, even while knowing that my friend buys these leggings for $10.50. Business is business, it’s not personal, they say.
If you take the time to step out of FB groups, you will see that there are the same or very similar pieces sold out there for much less. I have dressed in this conservative style my whole life and my closet mostly consist of soft brushed cotton material and such soft fabrics that are below the knees, show no cleavage, or shoulders and armpits. This style or way of dressing is not new. LLR didn’t exist 4 years ago and designed and created such clothes. They only popularized it and sold through FB, a place where we are all at. You can find it all elsewhere. A few months ago, I bought from Costco a “Cassie” for $12.99 and a “Perfect Tee” for $14. Walmart has “Joy” and Target have “Sarah” and “Nicole.” My local fabric store has a sewing pattern for “Carly” but that is a whole other blog post. My point is, if you like these styles, if you really seek, you shall find. And you will find them for much less.
