Frequently Asked Questions
Are your leggings good for yoga/running/cycling/pilates/barre/working out?
Yes! Our leggings are lightweight and moisture-wicking. They pull sweat away from you- with NO embarrassing sweat marks- and dry quickly. Our unique, Broadway dancer inspired fit ensures that they will never slide down, never bunch up, never require yanking or pulling, and never get in the way of whatever keeps you moving. They are also great for traveling, as they take up almost no room in a suitcase, and can hang dry overnight!
I don't have the guts to wear leggings. I don't think they would look good on my body.
No offense, but we think that's a bunch of baloney. Our pants are truly magical- they are cute and flattering on EVERY body we've seen them on. Not sure how you feel about bright, colorful prints, but are curious about our amazing fit? We have Not So Basic Black Leggings too.
I received part of my order- where is the rest?
Our leggings are packed and shipped in New Jersey. The rest of our items (tops, accessories, and jewelry) are processed using several "print on demand" facilities in California. Since those items are not made until they are ordered, it takes a couple of days to print them. (Our jewelry take a little longer to print than our tops.)
We have no control over how long it takes to print and ship each item from California, but they are generally pretty fast about it! You will receive a shipment confirmation email with tracking information from our other facilities for each item in your order.
If you still have not received shipping confirmation for your entire order after about a week, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can look into it for you. You can also email us if you need shipping expedited.
What size should I order?
We are always willing to work with you to figure out what size you should order. All inquiries should be emailed to email@example.com. The more information we have, the better we can determine your size. Our leggings are designed to fit snugly. Please choose your size carefully- start with your hip measurement and dress size.
If you are between sizes, choose the larger size.
If your waist and hip are two or more sizes apart, choose the size in the middle.
Remember, the numbers on the label are never a reflection on you. You are beautiful, and we think you will look awesome in our stuff.
If your size is not listed, please let us know!
I wear a size (fill in the blank) in Lululemon/some other brand. Are your sizes the same?
Lineagewear aims to run as true to size as possible, but that won't always align with other brands. Manufacturer sizing is arbitrary, and clothes are all graded on different scales. Lululemon stops at a size 12, while we here at Lineagewear realize that women come in all shapes and sizes, and offer way more size options.
If you generally wear a medium, you will probably be a medium. But there's always a chance you will be a small or a large.
Do you ship international?
Yes! We ship anywhere in the world via USPS First Class and Priority International. All orders, including international, over $125 ship free!
Do you offer a wholesale rate?
As many of you know, our wholesale program has been on hold since last year. We recently decided not to move forward with it, and went with an affiliate program instead.
Due to overwhelming feedback, it's clear that an affiliate program was not a good substitute for wholesale, and we are pleased to announce our new wholesale program is available for beta testing! This program is only available to studios and stores, not to individual customers.
Do you offer a referral program?
Yes! Our Give 10, Get 10 program can be found here.
Do you offer drop shipping?
Not at this time.
Do you offer a discount for yoga teachers?
Yes, we offer a 15% discount on leggings. Please email proof of employment at a yoga studio to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive our discount code. (We are flexible about proof- a YTT certificate, pay stub, or link to class schedule is enough.)
Do you offer a military discount?
Yes, we offer a 15% discount. Please email proof of enlistment (ID card, Orders, or a W2 with employer identification) to email@example.com to receive our discount code.
Do you offer exchanges or returns?
We are always happy to exchange or return an item, for any reason, and offer free return shipping. We work closely with each customer to determine any exchange needs, therefore our return rate is low. Please see our Return Policy.
Do you sponsor yoga challenges?
Yoga challenges are super hot right now, and we admire the incredible community on Instagram that participates in them. For the most part, we have phased out sponsorships. On rare occasions, we will sponsor a challenge with the right criteria, i.e a particularly unique outlook or cause. Each individual host (not combined) should have a following of at least 5 thousand per platform. Sponsorship requests should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Request sent via DM will likely not be seen, sorry.
How long do I have to wait for my order?
Previously, Lineagewear was using a made to order format that often resulted in very long wait times for orders. We have converted over to carrying stock, so orders will now generally be processed within 1-5 business days. Our print on demand products may take an extra couple of business days, as they are processed separately (see top of page).
What's with the hem? Why isn't it finished?
Last year, we phased out our raw edge hem in favor of a coverstitched hem. While it is true that spandex doesn't fray and doesn't require a finished hem, based on customer feedback we have realized that more folks prefer the look of a finished edge than not. No matter what, we will never finish our hems with elastic.
When are you coming out with new prints?
We are currently switching over from commercially available prints to all custom, unique designs. We don't follow fashion seasons, as that goes against our message of sustainability. For more on slow fashion and the environmental impact of seasons, read this.
Where are new products being released?
In the works! We are hoping to have short shorts out next year. Mens leggings, sports bras, and other goodies are currently being developed.
We have recently collaborated with Manifesta to produce tank tops!
Please be patient as we perfect our patterns one at a time. Every pattern is "road tested" by several individuals of each size.
You make Broadway costumes for a living. That's like fashion, right?
NOOOOOO it is completely different! Fashion has to look good on the runway. Costumes have to stand up to the rigors of sweaty performers abusing the heck out of their costumes for 8 shows a week, with laundering in between each show. They are completely bespoke, are fitted multiple times along the way, and have to be WAY sturdier than regular clothing. We mention this to highlight the fact that Katie knows what it takes to make a high quality pair of leggings. A cute print is not enough- it has to stay put in downward dog, or during that 5k, or while you're scaling that mountain.
