Faulty elastic - very poor quality
After only one wash the elastic frayed so much, it is ruined. Washed in cold water and in laundry bag. Very poor quality.
Theoretically nice, practically not so much
Really nice designs and most extremely flattering to most shapes. However, 4 pairs of my tights have ladders around the bum and thigh area, not because of incorrect size, simply from the poor material and poor stitching. Another pair is pilling. Just be careful what material you buy and get them on sale. Avoid the Arise material and go more for the material of the typical leggings of higher spandex percentage. :)
Okay products but very poor returns policy
The leggings I bought are reasonable, but I don't think that they would be worth it if they weren't on sale. Unfortunately their returns policies are really poor for such a large company. Orders can't be changed or cancelled once made, even if you want to do so immediately. Buyer is responsible for return shipping and anything that was bought on sale can only be exchanged or returned for store credit. When compared to other sites that I'd usually buy clothes from (ASOS, the Iconic, Twotags) these return policies are really ordinary. Once I use my store credit I won't be buying anything else from Echt.
Like a Second Skin Love This Brand!
This brand gets some horror reviews and that's why I wanted to honestly review my 4 Echt purchases. 3 pairs of pants and 1 crop top. All fit as specified in the online measurements. Fabric is just gorgeous, as a group fitness instructor I am always getting comments on my clothes. The stitching holds well wash after wash and the postage is always super fast. No complaints here. Can't wait to order again!
There's pro's and con's
Pro's... they look great, I'm not skinny or fit by any means, but they do look amazing and the fit is great.
Con's... They aren't great quality, it's the stitching, easy pulls apart, also not the best fabrics for fitness, good for walking, even jogging but not great for gym work.

All of my activewear is Echt! Best workout wear!
I absolutely love my Arise Leggings and Sports Bra. Its always the first outfit I pull out of my draw for gym. They have been great for all of my activities eg running, Body Attack, Barre, Reformer Pilates. They hold everything in and make me feel great! Sizing is true to size for me. I am a small and I am a short curvy lady and have had no issues.
Best workout wear!
I purchased 4 different leggings, 4 different designs and 4 different materials and all I found was amazing!!! I have a pair for running which are perfect. A pair for low impact, a pair for leisure and a pair for weight training that doesn’t slide when you do squats lol. Love em all and will continue buying all my leggings from them!!
Waistband doesn’t stay in place
I was curious about this brand so bought my first arise tights & sportsbra. The sportsbra is great! The tights were disappointing. The fabric is slightly thicker than other tights which doesn’t bother me as much as the waistband. The waistband is bad especially when you compare it to Lorna Jane. The waistband should stay in place but instead it keeps rolling down. I did body combat & kept having to pull it. As soon as you bend, it rolls down- definitely annoying!!! It needs an elastic or drawstring to keep it in place. I’m probably going to have to insert an elastic band to keep it in place. Might be fine for walking but not appropriate for higher intensity training.
Echt sensor leggings
Do not buy....Worst leggings i have brought . They are so see through, i cant wear them out of the house. I wish i had read reviews before buying.
Excellent Customer Service
Received my order within days, didn't like the quality but didn't realise I had to pay for returns, I contacted them and was sent a returns label as a gesture of goodwill. Hopefully my refund will be as swift
Terrible quality buyer beware
Arise scrunch shorts. Hardly worn. The back seen ripped open when getting out of the car. I’ve seen lots of complaints about this happening on face book. Terrible quality
dont do it !
have 3 pairs of their fitted tracky pants as l loved the look but the stitching is coming apart on all 3 and definitely not worth the price
Fast and easy returns
Received a pair of leggings that I didn't quite like. I requested to have them swapped to a different style. Fast return's. I was notified when they had processed the returns. Best returns service I have ever had to deal with. Would recommend this brand to anyone.
Echt Force Scrunch Bum
These tights look the part and fit great, I am a size 8 so a Small is a great fit with room to move. The scrunch bum however, not engineered for an actual workout or squatting. I have been through three pairs of these where the scrunch bum has snapped within just a few wears each. I am not overweight and I am not buying too small by any means; in my opinion and because of my personal experiences, not once but three times, I just don't believe they were made for a strenuous activities or a weights session. I think they would be great if you are ...doing light, non strenuous, everyday walking or a light stroll but certainly have not stood the test of actual workouts which is truly disappointing. It has steered me to another brand which I have found to be stronger and much more practical activewear. I hope this helps someone who is looking at purchasing so you have a real understanding of the product and its capability.

I really can’t fault them
Echt is definitely worth buying on sale. I find their prices a bit high for what you get. Everything Ive ordered Fits correctly according to the size chart. The materials are fantastic and give me great support. I don’t find that they roll down (unless my weight/size changes). Shipping is unbelievably fast! I ordered on a Thursday and received my order on Friday 5pm!
I can honestly say that I’m happy with everything I’ve ordered. Because if this, I haven’t used their returns option so I can’t speak on that.
If you are on the fence, get a couple of things from the outlet. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
First time buyer -very happy
I bought three items - the Arise Sportsbra V3, the Arise Leggings V3 and the Storm Lifestyle hoodie and I have to say I'm super impressed by the quality, fit and colour. I'm a longtime traditional sportswear brand person - mostly Nike, I keep seeing these guys pop up so I took my chances. I was super impressed. The quality for the price is exceptional - the hoody is really cool - I love the elastic in the hood so you can pull it up in a collar when cold. It's not too long, not too short. The leggings are super flattering and a perfect fit- lov...e it all. Not sure how there are bad reviews here as I'm pretty much blown away by the quick delivery (to Melbourne) and how good everything looks and feels. I just jumped online and bought another hoody in the blue. I'm 162cm and between a 10-12 - sizes are true to size - I got a medium in everything except the hoody I got an 'L' for a looser fit. So happy with it all!!
Scrunch tights tore after only a few wears
I bought two pairs of arise scrunch tights earlier this year, they fitted amazing, felt great and super comfortable. After less than 10 wears the scrunch seam in the bum split, mid-dead lift.
Very disappointed as I liked how they looked and felt - but definitely not squat proof or durable
I wouldn't recommend them at all as they are terrible quality. Feels like really cheap material has been used. I only bought one item a pair of pink leggings during covid-19 stage 4 restrictions and the pants were see-through you can see my underpants. Looks tacky as. Then I had to pay $10 to send it back also the shipping was $10 as well to be sent to me so I spent $20 just to receive a product I have to return
I'm either stuck with a pair of leggings that are unwearable or sending it back at my own cost. All for a $40 pair of leggings which i...
Good quality not to thick not to thin also i have little to no boobs an this top is still flattering an supportive too perfect for everyday gym an running
Quick delivery and good quality
I've always had good experiences with Echt. Their leggings are good quality, fit true to size, don't fade and I love that they come in many bright colours. Super quick delivery; even during COVID my package was still delivered from Melbourne to Sydney the next day. Always good outlet specials too.
Questions & Answers
Has anyone found a dupe for the echt scrunch bum shorts?
I was wondering which of country are their clothes made in?
Australia I believe.
Hey guys- does anyone have purpose leggings and do they slide down while working out? I run a lot and do high intensity activity. The forced scrunch leggings slide down sooo much and I can’t wear them for exercise so I don’t want to purchase more if they all do this. Thanks!
