Commando control leggings have arrived in South Africa

From cutting-edge intimates to luxury-technical ready-to-wear, Commando creates the styles that make you look and feel amazing. From thoughtfully sourcing fabrics to fit testing every style on real bodies—they care about where and how their garments are made. The result: luxurious, long-lasting, well-fitting garments that make your wardrobe work harder for you.

Nearly all of the fabric used for their intimate apparel is Oeko Tex and REACH Certified, and knitted in plants with energy efficient infrastructure, equipment and processes. Founder, designer, and CEO Kerry O’Brien sources fabrics from the world’s most innovative mills and builds the Commando collections around them.

Kerry’s unique approach to the fashion industry has broken boundaries and revolutionised an industry, with Commando currently holding two patents for innovative design.

Manufactured in the USA, Commando has arrived in South Africa with six classic styles of leggings:


Commando’s faux leather fabric looks like real leather, but has amazing technical properties including incredible four-way stretch, high-recovery, and the ability for raw-cut finishes. Best of all, it’s machine-washable and retains its look wash after wash.

Constructed with their signature smoothing waistband and a high rise, Commando’s faux leather leggings are ultra-flattering. Unlike most faux leather leggings on the market, these leggings have no side seams for a true fashion look, and they’re finished with raw-cut hem.


Commando’s luxe, Italian Neoprene is form-fitting with high stretch, incredible recovery and is resistant to pilling, wrinkles, lint and pet hair. This fabric makes ultra-luxe and easy to care for pieces that are wardrobe staples. Neoprene’s stretch and recovery is incredibly high. Combined with a cushiony fabric weight, these pieces truly mould to the body, for a form-fitting and ultra-flattering look. Because Neoprene is a high-gauge fabric, it is able to be finished with raw-cut edges that lay perfectly flat against the body. 


Known for its performance-enhancing properties, this soft, compressive fabric of the Fast Track leggings reduces muscle fatigue and boosts recovery. With high breathability, fast drying properties and high stretch and recovery, this miracle fabric lends itself to performance-wear and travel. A tight interlock construction and spandex fibres make our Fast Track fabric compressive, and give it a soft, smooth hand feel. This compression lessens micro vibrations and fatigue in muscles by slowing the formation of lactic acid. A polyamide fibre is woven into this fabric, which makes Fast Track fast-drying, anti-microbial, and resistant to odours.


These high-shine leggings are made from a four-way stretch patent with great recovery. Constructed with Commando’s signature smoothing internal waistband and a flattering high-rise, these patent leggings are a show stopper.


Commando’s bestselling faux leather leggings get updated with on-trend animal print. Made with a four-way stretch animal-printed faux leather and featuring Commando’s signature internal waistband.


Commando’s classic control leggings designed with their signature internal waistband and firming fabric that doesn’t sag. These women’s leggings are smooth, sleek and provide all-day comfort. 

“With the exit of Spanx from South Africa, we needed to find a product to replace the shaping legging offering to women in South Africa. After a few meetings with the team from Commando, we knew this was the right brand and fit for not only us, PDL Distributors and our values, but our customers as well. We are very excited to be launching this brand in South Africa, and have already received great feedback from the market.” Comments Co-Founder of PDL Distributors Dimitri Parolis.
