Women's Solid Control Performance Capri Legging
Good Exercise Pant
Recently purchased these for walking/exercise. I'm 5'3 and 114 lbs and the size small fits perfectly. The waist comes up almost to my waist which I like. Only wish there was a bigger pocket for cell phone and tissues. Have had to buy a mini fanny pack to hold those items.

I teach Jazzercise and am always looking for affordable yoga pants for teaching. I find the fit on these to be just right, very comfortable to work out in and sturdy (will hold up to washings- I always hang to dry). Will probably get another pair. Very happy with this purchase!

Too big, but not surprised
My Mom has an older pair of capri workout pants from LE that fit me, but they don't seem to make them anymore--now the only option is loose-fitting capris or leggings. LE is pretty conservative, so I thought I'd try the leggings. LE always seems to run big, so I knew I probably needed a 1X, but they were out of it. I ordered the 2X in the hopes that it would work, but no luck. Both the rise and the rear were too loose for me. I've checked back several times to see if the 1X was in stock, but so far they haven't restocked. I wish they'd get on the ball with that. In terms of quality, these workout pants seemed just fine. If they weren't too big I would keep them.
On a side note, I've been a plus-size shopper for years, and it frustrates me that LE's sizing is slightly different than most others. Most places, a 2X is an18-20. At LE, I'm forever between sizes since their 2X is an 20-22. :(

Short legs, long rise
I agree somewhat with the review "Nice but too long in the rise". For me, the legs are too short and the rise is too long. In order to have the crotch next to my body instead of hanging halfway down my thighs, I have to pull these up so high that the lower hem is right at my knees. My legs are short, so I expect longer-legged customers are having even more of an issue. On the positive side, the fabric is nice; construction seems good; width-wise the sizing seems correct; and laundering is fine. This garment is a nice concept, just not executed well. I am returning my unopened pair.

i'm happy to find capris that fit.
I'm 5'10'', 165lbs, long waisted, and these capris fit me well. I tried my usual size large, but found them too snug for my liking, and re-ordered in XL; a little loose, but comfortable for me. The waist is just below my waistline, the hem barely clears my knee. I've worn them out walking and exercising a few times, and they seem breathable and not too hot, which is important for me! I plan to order the slim pant for the fall.

no, no, no.
I didn't like these at all. I have performance capris that I bought several years ago and these are so different. They have this wide (~4 inch) band around the calf that is so uncomfortable. If it's rolled up, it cuts into my leg, if I get it unrolled, it's sticks to my skin. I had to send them back. Also, the fit is weird. Considering how tight they are in the calf, I didn't expect them to be so loose in the seat. Very disappointed.

First time with active wear, love it
Wasn't sure I would like the fit, but these are actually comfortable, even in my size. I like the way they look and feel. Not warm, first day I wore them it was 80 outside. I have the shorts too and they also are comfy.

Finally - true waist workout pants!
I love these workout pants! Finally, a pair of high quality workout pants that hit at the natural waist and do not cut into your tummy, creating nasty muffin top. The fabric is thick with good compression. The length is perfect, just below the knee, but the mesh inserts are cooling. They do run a little large. At 5' 3" and 118 lb., I ordered a S, but am thinking that XS might have been better. I do wish these came in petite sizes too. Highly recommended!

Nice but too long in the rise
I really wanted to like these. I do like them but my only issue is the rise is too long. I bought size XL, and I think they think that as you get bigger, that the rise gets longer too. Seriously, when I pull them up they come 3 inches under my bra. The waist kinda rolls while working out....not good. Now the rest of them are nice, great length and love the mesh behind the knee, and the hidden pocket is a good idea. Please make them with a shorter rise.

Love the length
Great fit (runs a little on the large size I would say) but super comfortable in a hard to find length. These are not really capris they come just below the knee and I love them
