What color did I order again?
on October 29, 2012
So, I've been on the lookout for some nice leggings and decided to give these a go. For reference, I'm a tall lady at 5'10" without heels, with a hourglass figure and 34" waist. I ordered the Medium/Large size and when they came I gave them a try... while the material was nice enough, didn't seem like it would snag and rip as easy as some other legging brands, they were not comfortable around the upper legs and waist. When trying to pull them up I found that they would not fit snugly in between my legs but stopped about an inch below my crotch. I would have to carefully pinch and pull the material to get it up. This would result in uneven patches of quite see-thru material around my legs, not really the look I was going for. Perhaps if I wore it and walked around it would eventually even out but this is not what I was after. Again, the material looked and felt nice, but I'm afraid it just wasn't up to handling my shape.
Another problem, which other reviewers have pointed out, is that the color in the picture on Amazon and the color in reality are two different things. I chose a grey from that picture; the color of the actual leggings was closer to a very dark brown/black. The purple was more like a dark blue.
All in all, a disappointed in the item, but it's not entirely the item's fault at least where fitting was concerned.
