I really like these leggings. I bought a pair of bcbg riding style leggings many years ago before they became super trendy (or should I say trendy again - they were popular when I was a teenager too). They're just now getting holes in them after a gazillion washes and wears. What I loved about them is that they were similar to bandage material so had lots of stretch while holding everything in but not constricting, very comfortable. I've never found an exact replacement for my beloved black leggings at Bcbg or anywhere else but these are close. The material is thicker than a standard legging so there's some heft to them which I want in Canadian winters. Can't wait to wear them with riding boots and a tunic blouse or sweater! Hope to see these come back next season in different colours. FYI - I normally order a large in pants because I find clothing is made smaller than it used to be in several brands but I could've gotten away with a medium in these, they are true to size or just slightly more forgiving.
