How are the tops and tunics sized?
Our tops and tunics are sized according to style - Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large.
Do you sell tops for kids too?
Not yet! We’re working extremely hard to find the perfect cut to compliment your kiddo’s fantastic style.
I’m really tall, over 6 feet - will the leggings fit me?
Tall peeps, have no fear! These leggings are incredibly stretchy - meaning they stretch both width and length. With our experience, tall folks are better off with our Large (Plus) one size - as there is a little more material in the length and the rise. However, please use your own discretion and experience while selecting the appropriate size to match your needs.
I’m a little on the shorter side, about 4’11 - will the leggings still fit me?
Short peeps, we’ve got you covered! Please choose your size accordingly. If you are shorter than average, there may be extra material in the length but that’s nothing a little fold can’t fix. The possibilities are endless and a little extra material should never deter you from experiencing the magic that are these leggings!
How are the leggings sized?
Our kids leggings are sized according to averages.
Our SM generally fits a 3 - 5 year old, which can also be considered a 3 - 5 T.
Our LXL generally fits a 6 - 9 year old, which can also be considered a 6 - 9 T.
Please note, these are based on averages and the fit will vary on height and weight distribution.
My child is 4 years old but is taller than average, should I purchase the kids S/M or the kids L/XL?
Please refer to our sizing chart for a better idea (insert link)
My child is 11 years old but wears a children's 9T, will they still fit?
They should! However, JUST TO BE SAFE...please refer to our sizing chart for a better idea (insert link)
My child is very tall, but has very skinny legs and a narrow waist, will these still fit?
This is a common question among worried parents. If your child is super tall but has skinny legs, we’d recommend trying the L/XL out. However, please refer to the sizing chart for a better idea.
I have a 2 year old, could they still wear the SM leggings?
Some 2 year olds are able to wear the SM leggings since sizing is based on averages and vary with height and weight distribution. The main concern would probably be in the length. However, our mommy pals have put their 2 year olds in our SM leggings and just adjusted the length accordingly - nothing a little fold or roll can’t fix! And besides, they’ll last them a little longer ;)
I heard The Purple Puddle offers leggings for Dolls too! Is this true?
YUP. YOU BETCHA! We’ve been sewing and selling these adorable doll leggings since the beginning of October 2016. Our doll leggings are unique to OUR product line, and have been carefully fabricated by our team to fit any 18 inch doll.
What kind of dolls will these leggings fit?
Our exclusive doll leggings will fit any 18 inch doll including but not limited to the following, for example”
- - "American Girl" Doll

- - "My Life As" Doll

*** Often imitated, but never duplicated. Just remember, you saw it here first ;) ***
HOW are these leggings SO SOFT and STRETCHY?!?! What kind of fabric are these leggings made from?
WELL, we’d like to say they’re made of whimsical unicorn hairs that have been harvested by oompa loompas BUT.. we’d be lying. These leggings are seriously the perfect blend of polyester and spandex but it’s the finishing brush technique that gives these fancy tights an irresistible, ultra soft, peach fuzzy kinda-feel.
Are your leggings high-waisted?
This varies! Since they’re so stretchy with an impressive size range, they can be worn high or low, depending on personal preference, height, and weight distribution. Generally speaking, these leggings are meant to be COMFORTABLE - so wear them as you please, and adjust the waistband accordingly.
What kind of waist band do the leggings have?
Comfortable yet snug, forgiving yet firm enough to stay in place and prevent the leggings from sliding down. The waist band itself is ~2.5 cm in thickness (~1 inch wide). We are experimenting with other alternatives but so far, with our personal experience and customer feedback, this seems to be the best at the moment!
Can I wear these for yoga or working out? Are they breathable?
We pride the fact that our leggings are extremely versatile and can be worn for virtually any occasion! With that being said, you may wear them as you wish BUT please keep in mind that the fabric is not as durable as your conventional work out gear. You may wear them to yoga, and you can also wear them to the gym - but use your discretion.
In terms of breathability and wicking away moisture, please review some of our customer’s feedback on our Facebook page - some of whom have used them for hot yoga. Please keep in mind that this topic may be subjective and based on personal experience and preference. Everyone’s experience is different and unique.
How should I wash and dry your products?
The best way to treat any prized article of clothing is to be as delicate as possible. With that being said, hand-washing would be the best option and hang to dry. However, we understand that now everyone has the time or patience to do so. The next best alternative would be to wash them inside out, on GENTLE cycle, in cold water, and HANG to dry.
We can’t stress how important it is to HANG your leggings to dry - the heat from the dryer will not only fade the brilliant patterns, but may potentially weaken the fibres and ruin the elasticity. No one wants a saggy bum or loose knees! Treat them kindly, and they’ll return the favour. :)
PLEASE NOTE: Products that have been mistreated will not be considered for exchange.
I’m a male but I’d love to try your leggings out! Are they unisex? Can men wear them?
GREAT QUESTION! As per our genuine belief in how everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the magical things in life (AKA these ultra-soft leggings), the answer is YES - men DO wear them. We believe that style is unique and integral to each and every single individual and clothing should provide a means of self-expression, regardless of gender.
Some men do wear them under their shorts while working out(side), or under a long tunic top as a tight, form fitting alternative to jeans or sweatpants. Some even wear them as funky long johns, pajamas pants, or just plain old leggings to bum around the house in. Whatever floats your boat.
Please keep in mind that these leggings do not have a gusset for added stress or structural support. They are very form fitting, much like second skin - so keep that in mind. ;)
Do you take pattern recommendations?
YES!!! Send us your pattern requests and any cool ideas you have kickin’ around that marvelous mind of yours. Ultimately, we want The Purple Puddle to be your one stop shop for all things funky and fun - not just leggings. We also want you to feel involved and inspired to share your visions with US. Let’s have some fun!!!!!
