Those shiny funky lycra leggings for kids?

My 8yo daughter would like some leggings similar to some she sees her friends wearing. We're not in UK and there are no shops here. I've not found anything online.

They are normal leggings but shiny Lycra and printed in all sorts of amazing funky prints and photo screen pictures (space or animals or patterns).

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Are they a 'thing' back in civilisation? Quite a few girls came back wearing them after the Christmas holidays. Can anyone point me towards somewhere selling them online? I'd love to buy her a pair for her birthday.

Thanks smile

Not sure if it's what you're after but try typing comic strip leggings in on ebay

I know the ones you mean. There's a brand in the UK that do them - name escapes me now - but I know they were available on Alex and Alexa who ship internationally. I'm in Australia and I just noticed Target here are doing them, so I imagine they must be now available in lots of high st/mass market retailers. Hth!

Ah! Brand is La Loi.

Unfortunately I don't have good luck getting eBay to send abroad. Good idea though.

Wow the la loi leggings are brilliant - just the right thing. £40!! Eek!

There are lots of amazing prints on amazon but its hard to tell if they are shiny or more like a cotton stretch fabric.

If Target are doing them then surely I must be able to find some cheapy ones!

Yes they are everywhere in Australia which is behind fashion wise.

H&M have some super ones for £7.99!

Can't seem to find them on the h&m website.

Are they disco pants? Thick super shiny legging type trousers?
