A Guide On Finding Your Perfect Legging Length

A length for all styles, seasons, and sweats

 

Whether you’re petite or a tall glass of water, we've got a selection of legging lengths and styles that’ll keep your hem right where you want it — so instead of tugging down or scrunching up, you can focus on going all out in the studio and on the streets.

Legging length is a personal preference and you need leggings that meet you right where you are, not the other way around. At Alo, we want to hook you up with that goldilocks fit — so here’s our guide to finding the perfect legging length for your height...

PETITE // UNDER 5'4"

Capri - hits lower-calf

7/8 - hits at the ankle

Full - slight scrunch at the ankle

Goddess - lots of scrunch at the ankle

REGULAR // 5'4" - 5'8"

Capri - hits mid-calf

7/8 - hits just above the ankle

Full - hits at the ankle

Goddess - scrunch at the ankle

TALL // OVER 5'8"

Capri - hits upper-calf

7/8 - hits lower calf

Full - hits just above the ankle

Goddess - hits at the ankle

Now that you know the fits, let’s take a peek at these beauties in action and name-drop a few of our star styles...
