As an activewear connoisseur, it’s my duty to bring you the best pieces on the market. That means trying all sorts of activewear styles, the good, bad and scrunchy. Yes, scrunch leggings I am talking about you. A favourite to Instagram’s booty workout vids, scrunch leggings are high-waisted tights that have a cinched construction tucked where your tailbone starts, enhancing the booty shape.
Well, what’s wrong with that?! Women look great wearing them. I know, I know but I can’t help but picture something less attractive. For that reason I have kept my distance from wearing them. Nevertheless, I thought I’d turn to House of Peach, an activewear brand that knows a thing or two about sculpting the booty – without Brazilian butt lifts. Brace yourself, I’m overcoming my fear of booty scrunch leggings – featuring House of Peach.
Is it squat proof?
First things first, I’d recommend sizing down otherwise you’ll end up with more scrunch than you bargained for. Despite having excess material, this bright number gives you great coverage top to bottom. Goes without saying, best to avoid wearing black underwear because you’ll notice a subtle hint. Nevertheless, it passes the squat test!

Is it supportive?
House of Peach crop tops come with two pads inside and adjustable straps to make sure that enough support and comfort is given to you. What I love is the simplicity of the design. Even though strappy backs and keyhole details are cute, sometimes all you need is a basic sports bra to do the trick. Perfect as a staple!

Is it flattering?
Does it do the job? Referring to the booty region then yes, absolutely yes. The cinched construction is far more subtle than expected and teamed with a high waist band, it delivers a playful, flattering touch. Your most difficult decision will be which color to choose – House of Peach has 15 to pick from and purse-friendly too.
