Quit making excuses. You NEED these.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amour - Women's Fashion Varity Print Tights Leggings Pants (Apparel)
I ordered these in the "AW Hell Yeah Battle" print (because, let's be honest, robot dinosaur and unicorn), and contacted the seller immediately due to some confusion on the item title (Amour - Women Rock X-ray Skeleton Bone Skull Leggings Tights Black) vs. what I thought I was ordering. The seller replied back very promptly and answered all my questions. I received these glorious pants less than 2 weeks later. In fact, my order profile still states that there are 18 days remaining on the estimated arrival date.
Now, here's the thing. These are a "one size fits all." I was fully aware of this when I ordered them. I knew there was a 93% chance that my voluptuous derriere would not qualify for the "one size" category. Also, they came all the way from China, and the one size in China is literally itty-bitty, so I knew my chances of getting them on, let alone having them fit comfortably, was slim (pun possibly intended). Considering that these are most likely the most amazing piece of fabric that will ever grace my bottom half, I took the chance on wasting $20 bucks. Let me tell you, it was well worth it. They aren't very stretchy; a smidgen more spandex would have been slightly helpful. But, after a minute or two of squirming and squatting, I had those suckers on! They're mighty snug, and one stretch or bend in the wrong direction could very well lead to my lady bits saying hello to the world, but for a few hours out on the town (to show off and say "ha ha I have robot dinosaur/unicorn pants and you don't!"), they do their job. I wouldn't consider the image "stretched out," as I've seen stated in other reviews. I would say it just looks....bigger. But not in a wonky way. I would recommend wearing some black tights or something of the like underneath, just for good measure. While they're not necessarily see-through, per se, it does help.
I generally wear size denial14/16 in jeans, (don't act like you don't know what size denial is), so I'd say anyone size 22 and lower can stretch these glorious bastards on. So if you're sitting there thinking, "I am way too fat for these pants," then turn that frown upside down! It might take a small workout and some heavy breathing (and possibly a girdle and/or Spanx), but you will get these pants on and you will look fabulous. And even you don't, what's a better motivator for going to the gym than the coolest pair of pants you will ever own sitting in your closet?
tl;dr for all you smarties, top-notch customer service, one size fits fat (probably skinny, too) and robot dinosaur/unicorn.
ONE AND ONLY CON TO ALL THESE PROS: good luck finding a shirt and shoes to go with em. Also, I am aware that I over parenthesize. I'm working on it.

I was going to write a review for these, but- alas- why bother! You just wrote it exactly as I would have. Kudos. I sure wouldn't ever have someone watch me squirm into these, but then once they are on they are so ridiculously amazing I can't help myself...

I agree with the ladies below! Best review of leggins I've read! You are very entertaining! Company should hire you; you made me wanna try some! Smile. They sound like they are worth it and yeah, I know exactly what denial size 14/16 as I'm in that one too! And, I like having items other ladies quite possibly don't so...thanks again! :)

My big booty made me click away from these lovely unicorn leggings a few weeks ago and an ad on the side of FB brought me back (yay for stalker advertising). I'm glad I saw your review because now I'm buying 'em. I've got all kinds of crazy "good luck finding a shirt to match these" leggings, so I'm super excited about these ones!! :D

I actually found an oversized galaxy tiger sweater that looks so mismatched that it almost matches!
