YES! After many months of searching, I finally found them! I have been buying VS yoga pants since 2009, and then some idiot made the decision to discontinue them. REALLY? Discontinuing something called MOST LOVED?????
After many complaints, they were back, but not the same. They are a little tighter. I wore L in VS and in these Viosi, I wear their XL, and it fits exactly the way I used to love in the VS. Even though I am 5'6", I have long legs and love the length in these. I prefer my inseams longer, also because I usually wear high heels or platforms. I purchased two to try, and ordered 8 more.
I purchased these 2 years ago to wear everyday casually. They came in an individual plastic bag, along with the other two colors I purchased. I was very pleased with how accurate the color is to the online photo (it has never faded). The material is soft and stretchy and overall the pants are comfortable. The band is a good thickness and unfolds to 2"-3" above my bellybutton. The rest of the pant is not as thick as the band but for me wasn't thin enough to let underwear show through. However, it was thin enough to wear out in the inner-thigh area, causing eventual pilling the seam and small holes that turned into bigger and bigger holes. I have used these for everyday wear, sometimes with the band unfolded and other times with it folded. I'm not a fit person (5'6"-180 lbs at time of purchase), but I'm pretty proportionate in how I carry my weight. I do get big belly rolls when I bend over or sit down, and the band on these pants would fold down even more at these times. Also, whenever I run or play around with my son, it rolls down. Whenever this happens, the rest of the pants become loose enough that they start falling down. I've put up with them anyway, because 1) I can't afford to buy anything else and 2) I go through bouts of depression and anxiety that prevents me from being able to carry out things like making returns and such. Now, I'm past the point of no return. LOL Had to say it. Anyway, I went with these because of the reviews in hopes of them staying in place, but unfortunately the only times they have held up to that standard is when they are freshly washed and dried.
Only one pair has managed to remain hole-free, so I wear them when I have nothing else to wear. But the other pairs have been added to my scraps and materials box for crafts and sewing projects.
In the future I would not order these again. They're very basic yoga pants made out of that legging material that's shinny when your stretch it. I was looking for more of a t-shirt material like the kind Target use to carry. What's nice about the T material vs this material is that it won't ride up in your biz-ness, where as this material does. Also the waist is weirdly low, like throw back 2000s jeans low.
Awesome fit and comfort. These are my new favorite yoga pants. I ordered 2 more pairs because I like the fit so much. I ordered a small and am 5'5", 130lbs, 26" waist, 35" hips with legs on the thicker curvier side and these are just the right balance of thin but not see through and tight enough to smooth any unflattering parts of the bum or legs but still not uncomfortable. They don't flare out until the very bottom so they are really cute with tall boots worn as leggings but also flattering with tennis shoes or Ugg style boots in a kind of boot cut style so really versatile. I love that they hold everything in (including in the waist) but are not so tight that they cut off circulation or cause stomach cramps from cutting too hard in one spot in the tummy. Especially for the price, I can't say enough about these as my new favorite versatile everyday comfort and flattering substitution for my usual jeans.
UPDATE ... I loved these pants, and was so happy with the fit (and length) until they developed little pin holes (in the seams & the rest of the fabric) after several cold water delicate cycle washings and hanging up to dry. I wish the fabric was better quality, I would even pay more for the fit. I was out in public and realized that you could see through little holes in these pants that stretched out quickly into larger ones over my rear. Honestly, I have never had this happen before, and back up the other women who stated they had problems as well. I know the price was good, but it is a pain to find a good fitting pant (I ordered 2) and then not be able to wear it more than a few times. PLEASE keep the style, but invest in better quality material, Viosi! I am so disappointed I threw both pairs in the trash can. I also had bought two other pants with pockets from Viosi, but haven't worn them much as I don't want the same problem, and don't want to be caught out in public again with holes in my pants! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LONG ENOUGH FOR 5'7" AND TALLER! Quality pants, well made, not too hot, light compression, & comfortable Can't believe these pants are long enough for this 5'7" lady! If you are shorter you may need to turn them up, but if they are too short, taller ladies have high-water pants that can't be adjusted and they look ridiculous. Thank you so much, Viosi!
Great fit especially if want extra coverage (high top) that has a slimming effect over waist area with flared legs that are very flattering (if you have a few extra pounds). Would think they would flatter a smaller figure as well, but not a real small waist as they are not tIght in that area. They stretch enough to accomodate multiple sizes so if size 12/14 and tall you could wear L/XL depending on how tight you like your leggings. I ordered sizes L & XL (little difference between the two since they stretch), and the L was a better fit for me. The spandex (very slight sheen) offers light compression, and LOVE having cotton as the main component. It is hard to find pants that can be worn year round in warmer climates that are soft, comfortable, thick enough to wear in public, and not hot. I did not find them to be too thin or see-through, although climates that have harsh cold winters may require warmer thicker fabric.
I highly recommend these pants, and will probably order one size smaller when they are available as I would like to try a tighter pair for wearing with a long tunic top when not exercising.
These are really nice pants and the fabric is wonderful. Very comfortable to wear all day and nice enough for work. The only downfall I had is the legs are too long for me. I am only 5'2" so it is not the pants fault. These pants have a very nice boot cut stove pipe shape. My problem is that the thigh length was too long for me and the tighter tapered part fell below my knees, this made the boot cut flare not start at the knee, it fell way below my knee and looked weird on me. Again this is because of my short legs. For a taller person these pants are fabulous and a very good price for excellent pants. I gave mine to my daughter who is taller, she loves them and they look great on her.
I'm very picky about yoga pants and was very pleased and surprised to find that I love these. I'm always looking for the right amount of flare at the bottom and it's really hard to find. The fold over waist is great and helps hide your belly. They're also NOT sheer, another hard find lol. The only bad thing about them is they're a bit long, but I'm also fairly short, about 5'3". Not a huge deal. I would highly recommend!
