Soft and comfy but they loosen up!

I ordered a pair of these in my usual size (8), and they seemed to fit like a glove at first. They are SUPER soft and comfy on the skin. After a few wears, though, they are looser - especially in the waist - and have no compression at all. Knowing that the fabric would stretch out a little, I should have sized down to a 6. I'll still wear these around the house, but not for working out.

Too big

I love the fabric and the back big pocket. I wear a size 4 in the shorts but seems like I should have gone a size smaller in these pants .

super comfortable

132 lbs 5'6" and I bought size 4. Took it out for a 5 mile run in 40 degree weather. Not much compression but this is the most comfortable leggings ever. I am back debating to buy more pairs! Not too thin but not thick so panty lines will be visible (if that matters to you). Did not feel cold but I probably will not wear it when it is 35 degrees and under.

Strange fit

I just got these in my usual size and tried them on. The waist is fine, but everything else feels a little small. I’m 5’11” and they’re 7/8 length so maybe they’re for shorter people than me. I’m going to keep them and see because I got them during the winter sale and I think they’ll be okay.
