Flattering and comfortable

They are stretchy enough that my mostly size six body can easily wear a size four. Nice material and I want to own them!

Theory does it AGAIN. Perfection!

I own a pair of black wide leg Theory pants so wanted to give these leggings a try. These are WAY better than leggings. I'm 5'8" so have a hard time finding flattering pants. I have never tried on a pair of pants that made me feel so good! Totally appropriate for work (I wear suits every day) but also wore them out after work and felt sexy. The zippers on the inside of the bottom of the pants are different from what I usually wear and made them unique. Going to purchase these as soon as I am done writing!

Dress pant material - not typical leggings

Although these were completely different than what I was expecting (I thought they would be more of a casual legging rather than a work pant), I ended up loving them anyway. The fit is tricky - I'm a true size 8, but I do have a butt so they were difficult to pull over my hips. Once they were on though they fit perfect. Really well made, LOVED the zipper detail at the bottom. I left the zipper halfway open and paired with pointy toe pumps and a long shirt for work.

Cute but long

These fit well and true to size, but being 5'4 they were a good 4 inches too long. The zipper feature at the ankles made it hard to roll up so unfortunately didn't get to wear these!

Normally a size 6 or 4 and couldn't even get these on. VERY SMALL.

Liked but didn't love

I had high hopes for these leggings, but there were a few hitches. First, they are extremely long for 5'4". I had to roll them up inside my boots. Also, they are hard to get over the hips, but fit great when on. The material is thick, like dress pants, which I really liked. Had they been the correct length, I would have purchased.

Hips beware

Once I had these pants on the looked great, however actually getting them on was a huge effort. The pants don't have a zipper, and basically no stretch. I have hips. I felt like I was fighting with myself every time I had to use the bathroom. If the pants had a zipper I would have been much happier.

I almost bought these.

Super thick matte material. They made me look 5 pounds thinner. Nice zipper detail on the ankle that I wore open for sexy pumps.

Nice and snug!

These were nice and snug! I hate when I have to pull them up all day long. I do wish they had been slightly warmer.

Great fit. I didn't end up wearing because the purpose I rented them for fell through.

Great quality. Great fit and they make a girl with a straight/athletic style body that has a little (minimal) extra cushion/softness around the midriff feel fabulous and sexy.

Work pant that fits like a legging

The pants are a slim fit similar to leggings but long. They have Side zippers by the ankles

Small and Stiff

Did not wear these. They fit all wrong and the material was very stiff and not flattering.

Loved the material.

Very flattering for the legs, but not very forgiving if you a little tummy. Wish it was a bit bigger in the waist.

Comfortable easy and a way big step up from leggings

A staple and easy to wear. Runs lo.g but the zipper at the ankle made that easier to work with plus fun to play with and show some flare and your shoe/ boot
