To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great fitting leggings. They end right at my ankle bone and go up right above my belly button, so the smallest part of my waist. They are not see through at all—passes the light test and the squat test. The material is tight enough on the legs and hopefully the waist stays tight like it is now. If not I will come back and deduct a star.
Terrible quality! I have purchase core 40 products before and have never had issues with them but this pair of leggings has been very disappointing. After less than 5 wears all of the seams are unraveling. I have loose threads everywhere and now also holes along those seams. I tried to upload an image but for some reason amazon is not allowing me to attach an image to this review.
I’m 5’8” and 130lbs. Small fits me perfectly. I have a longer torso and these are HIGH waisted—they come above my belly button!!! I have had a hard time finding that—it’ll look like it comes above the belly button on the model in the photo, but then they’re shorter on me when I try them on. Not the case with these! Phone pocket is necessary as a mom of 2 little kids. Length comes about 2” above the ankle on me. I would say the compression is medium-high. I love these and I’ll be ordering more, especially for the price!
I normally like the Core 10 brand for my workout gear but these aren’t the best leggings I’ve gotten. The fabric itself isn’t as soft nor does it really wick away any sweat, its thick enough to pass the squat test so lifting weights in them wasn’t too big of an issue but running in them didn’t really do it. I typically wear a size small and the ones I received felt more like a medium to me. They were slightly large in the chest and had some extra fabric in the crotch area which bunched up on me when I moved. Having the pocket on the side was a huge bonus so I don’t have to wear a waistband to keep my phone with me but the pocket also sat very high on the waist.
As another reviewer mentioned, these are oddly loose in certain places. They are designed to be form-fitting, they just aren’t, quite. They’re not bad, but they’re not great either. The waist is so high that, when I’m sitting, I can pull it to my mid-ribs. From the knees downward, these are a bit loose. I’ll wear them, they’ll just never be a favorite.
