    I don't think big groups or small sellers are necessarily better. I think that if you want really specific things, you just have to be patient and stalk every group you can. If you build a relationship with a seller, she may eventually contact you first about things. A friend of mine is a photographer and told me last night that her local LLR person called to let her know she got in a pair of camera leggings and would set them aside if my friend wanted them. But it generally takes time to build a relationship like that, and it still really only works if there is something super specific you want.

    If it doesn't have to be LLR, you can check out Agnes&Dora. The sales model is pretty similar (mostly online, though multi-level marketing, even if they don't like to call it that). I don't actually have any of their leggings, but friends that do swear they feel just like LLR. I have several of their other pieces and I actually think the quality is better than LLR. And all their dresses have pockets, which is great. It's slightly different than LLR in that I thin consultants actually get to pick their items. (With LLR, they get to say how many of what size in what style, but the prints are random. With A&D, they actually order 4 Large Curie dresses in the navy polka dot print, or whatever.) The prints are still limited, but I don't think as limited as LLR, and many sellers will do pre-sales where they show an item/print that is available and if you commit to it, they will purchase is specifically for you.

    I also like the shapes of their pieces a bit more. LLR prides itself on being "modest" and is run by a Mormon woman (or so I'm told) who really values that. A&D isn't slutty by any means, but they actually have items with vee-necks, for example, which I find much more flattering. Their Curie dress is my favorite. I'm just trying to find more prints that I love. (Admitedly, overall I like LLR prints better, but there are gems with A&D. Until recently they had a ton of florals, which just aren't me, and now they have a lot of plaids which are super cute but vertical stripes get wonky on my giant boobs.)

    Here's a link to a multi-consultant A&D group. (And you can find a ton of other individual consultants either via that group or just by searching Agnes & Dora on Facebook). I'm not affiliated in any way; just passing it along.

    Thank you for this! I'm going to look at them, I like LLR I just don't have the time to stalk groups and be competitive.
