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 purchased the yoga capris and pants from Amazon Essentials. Capris work great - like several other reviews said, not the most amazing but they’re comfortable, fit as expected, and are great for working out. The pants, while they fit well, are extremely poorly made. Anytime you adjust the pants (pull them up when they slide down sometimes), the stitching can’t handle that movement and the outer stitches pop. Getting a size larger would not fix this as they’re not too small (hence needing to pull them up because they fall down a little). Fortunately it looks like there’s 1-2 other rows of stitches but it’s just a matter of time before holes start forming. Would not recommend the pants.
These are athletic leggings with the overlock seam, so not a legging you could wear under a dress, that said, they are not a good version of athletic leggings. They are scratchy, thin, and more sheer than you would want for bending. The knit is coarse so that when you walk the rubbing is more like wearing old fashioned nylons- sandpapery. You are much better off buying A*hletic W*rks brand leggings for less money at the big blue box retailer. Heck, spend the $16 and get the nice ones with pockets from the big blue.
Let’s just say these “leggings” are on the shiny and very sheer side. No way I would bend over in public while wearing these. But then again, I shouldn’t bend over in public in any pair of leggings (but especially these). I will look at the % spandex of these and know which leggings NOT to buy on the future. I like mine a bit thicker!
I was very disappointed that they did not fit. They look really nice on line but when you get them the size is so completely off. Perhaps you could amend your sizing chart depending on where the clothing is coming from.
I usually wear mediums in exercise leggings, and sometimes even smalls, but these mediums were super small on me. Even if they fit, I probably would have still returned because I got the impression that sweat would easily show through during a workout.
They are fairly comfortable; however they absolutely do not stay up. I’m always hiking them up. I ended up tossing them in the trash can after about 5 wears. I don’t need to walk around hiking up my britches!!
