Cute, But Tiny!

These leggings are very cute, but I would recommend getting the next size up, assuming you don't want them to fall right off your ass every time you wear them!

I ordered these leggings in three different colors - blue, black, and the now-discontinued magenta - so my review will be for all three pairs, as they seem to be identical except for their color.

I ordered a size large in all three pairs. For your reference, I usually wear a size 12 for skirts, dresses, and pants. My natural waist is about 31" around, and my hips are about 40" around.

Unfortunately, even though I ordered the same size as I normally would for any pair of leggings, these are just too small for me. I don't think it's a sizing issue, though - it's the way they're designed. They're meant to hit your leg at the mid-shin, rather than the ankle as most leggings do, and they're also poorly designed in the waistband area, so that it only comes up to my mid-hip. This is a really awkward place for the waistband to hit, because it's constantly slipping down and showing my buttcrack to the entire world!

For these reasons, I'd recommend going up a size unless you have practically indistinguishable hips, because otherwise, you're going to have slippage issues, and the start and end of the leggings won't look terribly flattering.

Aside from those problems, these leggings are actually really cute. I love the colors they come in, and how bright those colors are. The blue is closer to turquoise than true royal blue, which I don't have a problem with. The magenta is a gorgeous shade that reminds me of Tarina Tarantino's hair color. And the black looks a lot like those American Apparel lamé leggings that were so trendy a few years back (except for the fit and cut, which are definitely better in AA products).

The material is fairly stretchy and very comfortable (when the waist isn't slipping down, that is). The leggings aren't too thick or bulky, so they can be layered underneath skirts, dresses, or shorts (which I would recommend, so you don't accidentally flash the people behind you).

I even managed to wear them out in a Canadian winter without freezing to death, which is significant.
Follow-up commentary
I ended up donating all 3 pairs of these leggings to a thrift store because they just weren't working for my body shape. They kept slipping off my ass because they are simply not designed for people with any "junk in the trunk" whatsoever. No big loss; I can get some very similar (but higher-quality) American Apparel leggings to replace these.

    I love the electric colours. I was going to get these but my butt will probably hang out, so I'll pass. I know all about the Canadian winter cold!

    So sorry these were too small! I keep almost getting them in purple & end up changing my mind. The price is pretty crazy for leggings.

    So what you're saying is, they're cute if you have a cute butt crack? Sorry, I couldn't resist. Thanks for the great review!
