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 was looking for a pair of yoga pants to replace a pair I have had for years. I wanted something that did not fit like a legging and was not skin tight. I wear them to classes and often to run errands before and after. I like a nice, thicker pant. These had great reviews so I tried them. They will be fine as pajamas. I am disappointed by the fit and the quality. The material is thinner than I expected and appears see through when stretched. And stretching the material is expected with yoga and exercise. The waist band is not a waist band, it is a thick fabric covered elastic. It is uncomfortable. I am sad to say my search for nice yoga pants that will be comfortable and look nice continues. These are pajama pants that people can wear to do yoga.
I'm a size 2, 125 lbs. Size small fits great, and very comfy. a little short in legs for my liking. I'm 5'6" and they look stupid in tennis shoes. High water pants.
I won't be leaving the house in these because they give you a bit of a "camel" situation in the crotch area. Seams are not sewn in a flattering way. I don't usually have a "camel" problem with pants. Great for lounging around in. So I gave 3 stars for comfort and affordability.
What I love about these is that they fit well and are comfortable. They're merino wool, so they're sustainable.
But for a $85 item... I was expecting them to hold up better.
The second time I pulled them on, my thumb went *right through* the fabric at the ankle. The ANKLE, mind you. I wasn't in the process of pulling these up over my butt or thighs. My ankle doesn't need the material to stretch very much. And I keep my nails trimmed short.
I was really disappointed.
But, they were comfortable and I'd spent plenty of money on them, so I kept wearing them. They've developed a hole on the inner thigh now. And, although I've only washed and dried these carefully by hand, the material seems to be getting more see through and I've only owned them for 8 months and I've probably worn them 20 times. I'm afraid to wear them more.
They're also starting to pill between the legs and at the seams. :(
Sustainable clothing should also be durable.
Maybe I ended up with a pair that snuck past their quality control. Or maybe I'm rougher with my clothing than I think...?
But I'm disappointed and a bit shy about spending my money on a product that isn't going to hold up.
