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.
I’m just over 5’6 and 170lbs. I first ordered an extra large but they were to big so I exchanged them for the large and they are perfect. They are not winter tights people! They are a lighter weight yoga type lounge pant! The waistband is perfect and soft and I love that they are straight leg at the bottom. Based on other reviews I decided to wash the LG pants before I sent the XL back. I washed them alone in cold on a delicate wash and put them in the dryer for a few minutes on low and then washed them again on a quick wash and hang them to dry. They did shrink an inch or two in length only but that was a good thing because they are still a couple inches long but I don’t care. If I hadn’t put them in the dryer they would not have shrank in length at all. These will be fantastic for around the house or cool spring summer evenings on the patio.
These are bell bottom yoga pants with a very thick, heavy waist band. They are nothing like what is shown in the photo. Why would a company misrepresent their product this way? Now I have to pack them up, print off a label, and drive to the post office to return them.
Yes the band of elastic at the top is thick, but it hasn’t been a problem. They fit and feel nice on. Not something I’d wear in the winter because they are lighter weight. The only big recommendation that I can give is to wash them several times before you wear them or wash them with something else. The black dye definitely bleeds and it bled into some of my other clothes and ruined them. That’s even after washing them twice, so beware.
