The leggings are soft and stretchy, and do not cause any irritation or discomfort even after a whole day’s wearing. Length is a little on the short side, but they fit me well because I happen to have short legs. The pockets could certainly be a little deeper, my phone pokes out over the top of the pocket and doesn’t feel really secure. I have noticed that the leggings tend to slide downwards slightly after some movements, and it’s annoying to have to pull up your pants ever so often. That said, I bought these to lounge around the house in, and for that purpose they are good value. Also, I should mention that I have rather muscular thighs for my size and that could have contributed to my experience with these leggings.
