i really wanted to like these leggings
i am curvy, usually a 14 or 16 (weight is on the bottom). although these fit, the waistband is so tiny and as i pulled them up, i heard stitches pop.

by AnnVeal Soft but waistband issues
Admittedly I ordered these largely because Bordeaux makes them, so they are definitely super soft. The fabric is pretty substantial and opaque. The tag says to hand wash, but I think I'll try throwing them in the washing machine then air dry. The waistline is much higher than I am used to (see pic), just below my belly button. The waistband is also a piece of loose elastic not sewed down so it sorts of twists around when you pull the pants up and down. I ended up cutting the tags off completely as they were scratching my back. I really like the seaming down the legs; they set them apart from other leggings. I ordered a S (size 27-28 in jeans), and they fit TTS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElleT Great basic leggings
True to size, opaque, very comfortable and stretchy. Not that tight. I love the high waist band; nothing else gives a smooth line under fitted tops. I'm a little concerned about the quality of the topstitching on the many seams, but I'm keeping these anyway. The fabric is unbelievably soft. I chose the black because it's more versatile and because the navy had a slight sheen that I didn't like.
