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 have seen several reviews saying that it fits well and is comfortable. It makes think that probably the one sent to me had some problem. I was able to be in it for only 30 minutes. I liked the color - that is the same of my tennis shoes so I ordered the leggings. I picked size 2X considering my shape: skinny legs x wide hips but surprisingly it was too tight on my legs and too loose on my hips. I have worn leggings Calvin Klein and Adidas size XX-Large and they fit well . I hate to leave bad reviews, but I think my experience should be shared.
Update: since my original review I’ve ordered two more pair. The first was the 2x again and they were way too small. They were so small that they fit like a large. Then, I ordered a 3x which are slightly tight but not uncomfortable or restrictive.
So which was the aberration? The 2x that fits perfectly? The incredibly too small 2x? Or the slightly tight 3x? I probably won’t order these again, which is a shame because they are super cute and comfy when they fit.
I sew and understand pattern construction. It’s not possible to have a size 2x pattern come out in so many different sizes as along as your pattern is consistent - especially for pants which are some of the easiest clothes to make. Also, I’ve lost 10 pounds since my original review so this isn’t my body making them fit weird.
Original Review These fit me great. I’m 5’5” and usually wear an 18/20 in most all pants. I ordered the 2x and they fit perfectly.
The fabric is nice and feels sturdy. Not at all see-through in the black camo. I also bought some $20 Amazon basics leggings and these are so much better in thickness and make quality. I was hesitant to spend this much, but I think these are going to be worth it.
I did think I ordered the Capri and they are definitely ankle length on me. I think they sent the wrong ones, but I love them enough to not care.
Pros first, because I'm polite: The cutout placement is novel, and could be flattering if it stayed put. The fabric is a good thickness.
But these suckers have problems. I find myself puffing out my stomach to keep them in place. If I am still wearing them on a midnight walk, I literally have to hold them up. The combination of issues also results in upper thigh chafing.
The upper calves are made for chicken legs. This causes them to ride downward, pulling on the waist and making the latticework gape.
The waist elastic is very narrow and tends to become ineffective over the course of the day.
The waist and front rise are enormous. I don't have a flat stomach by any stretch of the imagination, and I don't have proportionally big hips or butt. Yet the front of these pants covers my ribcage, while the back sits at a high-waist level.
They're terrible. I will not buy this style again even if I can make them work.
