Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light sweatpants! I've been looking for well-fitting sweatpants for a while and these fit perfectly. They've very light-weight so not too hot and super comfortable to wear around the house. And they don't stretch out too much at the knees like some others made of lightweight material. The style is just fitted enough not too look sloppy and the waistband is nice and lose. I highly recommend them. I wear a 28 in pants and got a Medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from buy two ... The perfect pants for a Friday night movie or running errands on Saturday morning. Super comfortable and very versatile! I ordered my second pair within a week of owning my first! I wish these pants were available in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Light weight, stylish and comfortable. I'm 5 ft, 101 lbs and carry it in my bottom half. XXS was perfect (not loose; not tight; good length). I'm a 24 Short in jeans if that helps. Love the elasticised hems. Looking forward to wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy These are awesome! Retro sweatpants remind me of the sweats we wore when I was young but with a slightly more modern cut. They are super comfortable and great for those lazy days when you want to lounge around the house and run some errands. My hubby loved them so much he wanted them in his size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from go to joggers huge fan of these joggers - perfect for cooler summer nights and mornings walking the dog. They are on the thinner side (but in no way are they sheer) and hold a nice shape throughout wear. I lost my first pair somehow and had to get a backup. One thing - the color is definitely an ashier heather grey (like on the model) as opposed to the first photo (they aren't warm in tone). Sizing - I am an average build, 5'4" 120lbs and the small fit perfectly, good length and not too tight in the thighs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sweats Love these! They are comfortable and look more put together than your average sweat pant. I wish they came in navy blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday all day have to wear! These are not your usual sweatpants. They are chic, comfortable and versatile! I can wear them with high top sneakers or motorcycle boots. Please make more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Cute!! These sweatpants are perfect for summer! They are light enough to run errands in where I'm not sweating in them outside, but not freezing when i g into the stores. I also think they are quite stylish and easy to "dress up" as far as sweats go. I do not think I look like a slob when I wear them. The are very soft material, I am 5 6', 120lbs and I usually wear a 25 or 26 or a 0 in madewell. I went with a small and they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy! I love these sweats! If you're looking for a more fitted look (like the model in the picture), I'd size down. I'm usually a medium in sweats when I want them to be a little baggy and oversized; but I got a small in these and they fit perfectly to dress up or down.
