Women's Starfish Cotton Spandex Leggings
Best Leggings Ever!
These leggings are great! They are made of a nice, high quality, thicker material (not cheap and flimsy like many other stores), you can actually wear these as pants and not just under a dress. They have a nice thick waistband that doesn't squeeze your middle and make anything bulge out. I ordered them in black and the color has held up very nicely after a few washings.

Best. Leggings. EVER.
I was introduced to these leggings by my aunt. She is a size small and I am usually a size L to XL. Somehow, I was able to fit into a size M in these leggings! They are THE most comfortable leggings I have ever owned. Even though they are super stretchy in all directions, they have continued to hold their shape even after LOTS of use. And don't even get me started on how thick these are! They feel and look fantastic--no more see through leggings that show what colour underwear you're wearing!
I highly recommend you get lots of these, as they will quickly become staples in your wardrobe.

great fit, comfortable waist, don't bag at knees.
I love these leggings. They are so comfortable and look great with a tunic or long shirt or dressy sweater. Wash them inside out, hang to dry and they look like new, I wore them all last winter and they still look great. As I am 5'2", 120 lbs, I was really surprised that they looked so good. Normally a petite, I bought the small regular fit so that I could ruche them a little around the ankles (stops my short, not so slim legs from looking like turkey legs). Great with boots or ballet flats. Have bought them as gifts and they look really good on fuller figures young and old. So please, could we now have them in dark green and dark brown. .

I bought these last year & loved them, but the ones I bought this year have no pockets. The Corduroy Leggings do have pockets, so I've switched to them. Please bring back the pockets!

Love the fabric
These pants are comfortable, and the fabric is a step above other knits. It is more substantial, and will work well in both fall and winter. Very comfortable as well.

fits well; washes well
The length and fit of these pants are terrific. Particularly love the grey fabric. Have washed them a few times and fit and fabric maintain quite well.

Doesn't match the picture
Fabric does not have enough spandex to qualify as leggings. Waistline did not lay flat.

Good leggings, but definitely SIZE DOWN!
I sized down one size upon the advice of other reviewers, but I honestly wish I had gone down two sizes. I wanted these to be snug to wear under dresses with boots during the fall/winter. I have an odd problem in that I have very large hips/butt, but skinny legs. Leggings that fit my hips/butt are typically very baggy on my legs. That being said, the fit on these is decent, but just a touch baggy on my ankles. I am hoping that they will shrink just a bit when washed. The length is good, and the fabric seems high quality. The waistband is comfortable and does not dig in or roll down. The leggings did stretch out a bit with wearing, and I wish I had ordered a size smaller for that reason. I did also notice pilling on the inner thighs after just one wearing. Overall, I will continue to wear these, but I'm not sure I would repurchase based on the pilling/stretching.

Close to Perfect, But Not Quite
This is my third pair of Starfish pants. The first two are the original style,my third pair, these leggings. In all the three, the fabric feels very smooth against your skin, and the garment fits very comfortably. The pants actually come up to your waist, which is hard to find these days.. The ONLY issue for me is that the waistband is way too big, and it gaps at my waist. Being a person who sews, I have tailored each pair that I have to make the waist fit me better, but not everyone can do that.
The waistband issue is not a deal breaker for me, but I would love to see an adjustable waistband on these pants, maybe discreetly inside the band, so as not to disturb the lovely, flat, smooth front of the pants.
Then these pants would be perfect!

Comfortable, weighty fabric. A bit long for petites.
I haven't worn leggings since I was a child in the 90s but I had a baby 8 months ago and I'm still shape-shifting so I decided to take a cue from the comfy maternity leggings I wore while pregnant and buy a few pair to wear with tunics. My new go-to outfit is a pair of these pants with the Starfish Boatneck Tunic and flats or riding boots. I'm so glad to have found leggings that are as substantial as the description claims and that are appropriate for work and weekend wear and allow me to comfortably chase after my increasingly-mobile infant. These are a bit long for my 5'4" frame and they hug my mama curves but overall, they are the best I've found.
