Have been looking for a pair of good quality, slightly thicker leggings that will hold their shape, and these seem to be perfect. The slightly higher waistband is really comfortable and the sizing is as stated. I ordered the short length, being around 5'3", and they finish on the ankle. Long enough for no leg to be showing if wearing ankle boots, and a good length for wearing with sandals or ballet pumps. They are more expensive than alot of other leggings, but in this instance it is definitely a case of getting what you pay for. Just waiting for another special offer price and will be getting them in blue.
