Women's Starfish Cotton Spandex Leggings
Comfortable & substantial
I love these leggings - the waistband is wide and flat and very comfortable, and gives a nice smooth look under clothes. I prefer a waistband that isn't too tight or I end up with lumps and bumps above and below the elastic! I do not have any problem with them falling down as some reviewers have... perhaps because I am curvy, I find the stretch in the overall fabric and the shaping around the hips keeps them up as much as the waistband. If you have very straight or narrow hips, these may not work for you for that reason - or you may have to down-size. The knit is substantial and I don't get baggy knees even after sleeping in these two nights in a row. Very nice!!

I do love these leggings. Weight of fabric is perfect and they are flattering. Only unfortunate thing is that the waist is too big. Needs to be more snug fitting at the waist.

would be perfect if waist not too big
I am 5'4" & sorta average skinny. I ordered xs. The waist is so much too big. It sticks out once I get it pulled up to my waist. After a while it slides down to my hips where it lies flat; but from there the whole garment starts to sag. Can't LA make an xxs? I've already had to size down from a small. I would really like to have the waist fit snug at the waist not at the hips.
Otherwise, the fabric is great & by ordering regular, I can get them long enough to suit me.

Great fabric, poor stitching quality
I purchased these leggings, along with the cropped length, to wear during flights on a multi-segment trip. They are extremely comfortable, and the fabric is thick enough to hide undergarments. However, after putting them on for the second time and adjusting the waistband (by pulling up gently on the waistband so it sat more comfortably) the stitching on the front of the crotch area ripped. I thought it was a fluke, but it happened with the cropped pair as well... I did not put the leggings on only using the waistband, and I find it absurd that leggings cannot handle being adjusted via pressure on the waistband.
Alas, I love them and they fit well (perhaps even a bit big, I should have gotten the XS), so I'll repare the ripped seams on both pair myself. Be gentle with these! LE: perhaps you can reinforce the stitching in this critical area on your next run?

High Quality, as usual
I love the plum color I got. I usually buy petite sized stuff but got a womens regular medium instead of a petite medium (8). The only word I could use to describe it is ginormous. I returned it for a smaller size and it fits much better but is still a little less snug than a 6 usually is on me. It is exceptional lands end quality stuff and I imagine these will last a long time. The fabric is not super thin, like a lot of other leggings these days so I don't worry as much about panty lines :)

I just got those leggings a couple of weeks ago and am re-ordering another pair!
They are very comfortable.
They run big and I am glad I read the reviews before buying. I am usually a Women's 1X and Petite XL is perfect for me!
As advised by many others, you might want to order one size down.

Quality leggings that feel great
Love my leggings. Decided to break out of my t-shirt rut and explore tunics and leggings. Got a pair of Starfish leggings in L, navy, and I love them! I am 5' 3" with 44 in. hips, wide waist and the L fits perfectly. The wide waistband is heaven: it stays put without bunching or pinching, and it helps control my mom belly without feeling tight. This product is exactly as described: quality leggings that flatter - you will not feel like you're revealing all your lumps and bumps in these. Plus they are warm! Great for going out with a tunic on top, or for lounging or for sleeping in. Well worth the money. My only thing is I wish there were pockets!

These are great!
I LOVE all the Starfish products. These leggings are sturdy, yet light-weight, Tight, but not too tight and they really suck in where they need to suck in creating a smooth look. Comfy for lounging around, but nice enough to wear under a long shirt and go out to dinner!

I should have read the description a bit more carefully. I returned these because I just don't wear pants without pockets. I love the corduroy leggings; they're comfortable--and they have pockets! Lands End, please consider some really, really slim plus-size pants/leggings for summer--with pockets.

Love the fabric--heavier than most leggings and I really like the wider waist band. Fit is just right--XS Petite. When I ordered these I also purchased 4 other items and nothing had to be returned! So happy everything fit!
