I have been loyal to Danskin for a few decades, even though I've occasionally tried other brands. The truth is that Danskin outshines them all: they're MUCH thicker (even though I'll be the first to admit that recently they've cut corners a bit like everyone else in the current economic climate), they fit the best, they're much better made, and they're durable (mine usually last 3-4 years, and I wear them almost daily). Recently, however, with Danskin's inventory evaporating as they move their operations abroad, I decided to try these. The reviews seemed decent, and the price was right. But here's the big downside: these leggings are paper thin. They're really tights, not leggings. I seriously doubt they'll last a couple of months let alone 3-4 years. The other major downside is that although they are advertised as being made of cotton and spandex (even the tag that came on them says "spandex"), they're not; they're cotton and lycra. Lycra just doesn't have the durability that spandex has. My advice: spend the extra few dollars (actually, it's only $4.50 more because you'll get the free super saver shipping)wait a little while for Danskin to get re-established and buy the Danskin brand leggings.
