Knit Leggings

Knit Leggings is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent legging! I purchased these leggings on a whim online, and was pleasantly surprised when they arrived! The material is sturdy and not seethrough when stretched out (therefore no visible panty lines). Additionally, I was pleasantly surprised that the band hits comfortably at the hip, and they are not wedgie-inducing! Definitely a great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a little large I am 5'9" and about 140 lbs. The medium size is a little large. I am going to buy another pair in small. Love the quality and they will become a staple in my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic leggings. Bought some for myself. & my niece was on the search for longer leggings so i got her some as well. We're both pretty tall with most of our height in our legs. Somehow we both fit a small, though I have more hip than she does (she's 14, i'm 28). I could've sized up too i think and still be fine. I'm about 5'8, 140lbs and my niece is 5'8ish (maybe taller) and around 120-125. The length is great! it reaches our ankle area just fine. Great for lounging around the house or on the go. and we both pair them with Madewell trouser socks. its so cute. I got them in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from knit leggings I wanted to find the perfect leggings, so I googled "the best leggings", and the madwell knit legging was number 2. I ordered them immediately, and they did not disappoint. They are a really nice weight, very flattering, and not a at all see through. They do have a slight sheen to them, so if you don't like them to be at all shiny they aren't for you. They fit true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish I love these leggings and they are not see-through, but the shimmer does make them appear to be that way. If you have a big booty for your size, then you will be able to see the panty, but you have to look pretty hard. I have this problem with every legging I have ever purchased, so it was par for the course, but these masked that problem a lot better than other leggings. They are a bit long, but I'm only 5'2". Great stretch, good for a long day of wear. These are incredibly soft and warm; I bought them for a convention so I would be comfortable in Seattle and they really did the trick. I like that they do not roll down when I bend over, the waistband is very secure. I bought 3 pairs just to make sure I had a spare or two when Madewell stops selling these. It's worth it for me and I don't mind the shimmer. If you like the matte look, these aren't the leggings for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid leggings i'm 5'4" and 140ish with a soft belly, big thighs, average hips and butt and i ordered the medium. they are snug and firm without being constricting and would probably work on taller legs as well. they do bunch a bit at the ankles for me. they layer like a champ, even under jeans, and i've slept in them as well. i like that they don't move around and they don't seem to bag out either, but i haven't dried them in the dryer at all. but a few wears and washes in, i'm very pleased so far. they do have a bit of shiny, but not too much and they are opaque and don't seem to mind big thighs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Black Legging I love these leggings! They are comfortable, don't stretch out after wearing them all day and the color does not fade (this is a big one for me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the only leggings you'll need this winter I've been looking for a solid pair of leggings for a while, and these from Madewell were the perfect find. They are thick and definitely keep the Midwestern chill at bay! They even pass the squat test in terms of not EVER being see-through. They fit at the true waist, but still tend to run a bit long if you're petite (I'm 5'3). I ordered a size S (120#, athletic build).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Glad I Discovered These I had been looking for a pair of leggings that were comfortable, durable and long enough for me - after buying these I don't have to look any further! I have worn and washed them several times a week since buying them a month ago - they are washing well and not shrinking. I did size up and glad I did. I am 5'9" and 145lbs and went with a large. I also bought these in black!
