So, when these leggings (which I bought in 4 colors) came in the mail, I wasn't really sure how I was going to feel about them. However, after I washed them and tried them on, I'm pretty impressed. They are a lot stretchier than meets the eye & are awesome for the "mom tummy" with no bulge over the top of them. Very slimming and flattering. I'm very glad I grabbed multiple pairs!
