Sheer: Decline in fabric quality since the last time I purchased this item!
on January 17, 2016
I bought a 2 pack of these 21 inch inseam leggings in black and navy about a year ago. They were nice and opaque, soft and stretchy. The seams started to come apart from excessive wear and washing so I purchased this 4 pack of the same leggings in black to replace them. The new pairs are much more sheer. The tags and labels are identical (95% cotton, 5% spandex), style # OP-1052, yet the new pairs are much more sheer than the old. It seems as if the knit has changed. I took a picture of the new and old pairs of leggings in a window so you can see the difference in transparency (I included a negative of the same photograph side-by-side to display the difference in the knit more clearly). I own tights that are more opaque than these leggings! They are also starting to pill in the inside of the thigh area after 1 day of wear, which the old pairs never have, and I've been wearing the old pairs for over a year. I'm still giving them 3 stars because they are the same as my old favorites except for the decline in fabric quality. Thankfully I did not purchase them to wear as pants, but as leggings, to wear with long layered tees and tunics. So I don't need to return these; despite my disappointment, they will still work. But please don't purchase these as pants. They are simply not those kinds of leggings, anymore!
