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 am 5'3" tall and weigh 130 lbs. I usually wear a size 6 or small pants. I checked the other reviews before ordering. Other reviews mentioned a small waistband so I ordered the medium. It was very tight. I could barely pull it up over my hips to try it on. The pants themselves were cute, but the tight waistband made it too uncomfortable to keep. I sent them back and did not order a large because I thought the rest of the pants would be too big and I still wasn't sure the waistband would fit.
Slightly uncomfortable, rides up. I can't wear these too long because they cut off my digestion and ride up the rear. I end up looking ridiculous. I had wanted these for comfort, but it's the total opposite. Dis-proportioned fitting between the wait and the rest of the pant. If you have a small waist and flat stomach relative to your hips and thighs, they might fit well. If not order at least 1 or 2 sizes up.
I really wanted to like these, but I just didn't. For all the hype around The Gym People and their leggings, I expected them to be comfortable and flattering. Unfortunately, I found none of their styles to be as flattering as the leggings I get from VS. They fit, but the waist band just doesn't lay right. I returned all of them.
