A while ago, I was shocked to discover an Anatomie product that I didn’t know existed, and here I thought I owned them all—the Andrea Contrast Panel leggings! They’re super comfortable, with an elastic waistband (so they pull up— no zipper!), and are highly versatile, pairing well with many types of looks.
These legging pants are absolutely amazing for travel and I can’t wait to tell you why in this review!

Andrea Contrast Panel Leggings Features
I discovered these leggings from Anatomie and was shocked that I didn’t know about them before! The Andrea Contrast Panel leggings are my latest obsession.
You’ve heard me speak a million times about the Anatomie Skyler pants, so interestingly enough, these actually feel the same as the Skylar material, but have a legging shape due to the slim fit. This means they’re super comfortable and lightweight; I can easily roll them into a packing cube and include them in my carry on suitcase.
Confession: I actually like these more than the Skyler pants now after owning them for a couple of years!
As usual, it’s the details that Anatomie invests into their clothing, and the Lycra infused into the waistband and knee area means these never roll down on me, support my belly, and I can bend and move in them like a ninja (well, an aspirational one!). They pull up, so no zips or buttons to contend with. Frankly, they kind of feel like fancy PJs.
Travelers have described them as “light” and “breathable,” and I couldn’t agree more!
In short, Andrea leggings are really cute, super stylish. They have a slim silhouette, but that doesn’t take away from that comfortable feeling.
These literally can be dressed casual for some hiking, or amped up for a conference, and I can say with confidence I’ve done both! I also like to pair them with cute jackets, dress shirts, tees, my trusty merino wool sweaters, slip-ons, flats, or ankle boots.

These seamlessly incorporate into my capsule wardrobe and I can squeeze several outfits in with just one pair of Anatomie leggings!
As a traveler, having a versatile, fluid option is important. This is where the Contrast Panel leggings excel! They have these pockets where I can store travel essentials, one that’s hidden and two on each side of the legs. The fabric is awesome for sightseeing, awesome for looking dressy enough to attend a conference or to also go hiking.
I’ve actually used these for hiking in LA Jolla at Torrey Pines when I visit or hang there. When I’m traveling overseas, I can repeatedly wear them without having to wash them frequently.

I know travelers who wear these in the summer and they’re lightweight enough to probably wear in temperatures between 85-90°F. However, you may want to forgo them if temps get hotter than that. Ultimately, wearing them in the summertime is a personal preference.
Overall, bottoms are easier to rewear than tops, so you can maximize what you’re wearing in general with these leggings and use them most anywhere! A reviewer calls these the “perfect pants for travel.” Can’t argue with that!
Anatomie Panel leggings tend to fit most wearers well; however, there are occasions when you may need to adjust. I actually had to go down in size to an x-small for the best fit. Because they have an elastic waistband, I was able to wear the same size despite my weight fluctuating 20 lb over a one year period.
As a major travel bonus, I can sit comfortably on a long flight without it cutting into my stomach. This pull up waist band is practical and comfortable!
Some people feel these fit small. Anatomie operates an excellent customer service department and can return or exchange promptly, so you could try them on and see what works for you.

Wearers describe Anatomie Andrea Panel leggings as amazing travel pants. They’re lightweight, super comfortable, stretch in the right places, and are very versatile for a number of situations or activities. I find them stylish, active, and fun! Heck, you can even wear them to a yoga class and still get away with it.
Overall, travelers are pleased with this high-quality piece that is used for not just travel, but everyday wear.

Truthfully, Anatomie leggings do have a higher price tag than other leggings in the market. At $225, some travelers find that steep.
However, I consider these an investment for the long term. A well made, quality item that will last me for years and hold up against the rigors of travel, along with multiple washings and repeated wearings. I feel these leggings meet those standards for me tenfold.
Another aspect is sizing. Some users say these fit smaller than they expected. Anatomie is customer-focused and can advise on sizing and you might even end up speaking to the owner directly! (It’s been known to happen.)
Though Anatomie Andrea Contrast Panel leggings are higher priced, this has not deterred travelers from purchasing them and raving about them.
Many feel the investment is worth it because they’re quality-made pants that fit the travel lifestyle; comfortable, easy to wear (pull up), packable, and super stylish. They can be used for outdoor activities, urban sightseeing, an airplane outfit, or dressed up to speak at an event.
I personally wear them all the time and am glad I decided to incorporate them into my travel wardrobe—no regrets here!
