Knit Leggings

Knit Leggings is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 97.
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 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!

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 4 out of 5 by from overall pleased Overall I am pleased with this item. After reading other reviews, I went into this purchase expecting a legging on the thicker side and these are true to the reviews. I purchased them in the black, size small. For reference, I am 5'9", about 135 pounds and generally wear a size 4 or 27 in jeans. Being on the taller side, I was pleased that I had no trouble with the length of these, as is often an issue with bottoms that do not have length options. As far as the fit goes, the thickness of the seams on the inside leaves visible marks on my legs when I wear these for a while. I never really expect leggings to be a flawless fit and I think this particular effect is sort of unavoidable as sizing up would result in too loose a fit in the waist. The only other major note that I have is that as a few other reviews mentioned, these do have a bit of a sheen to them. It doesn't bother me but I know that's a matter of preference so it's something to keep in mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except very long These are nice and thick and very comfortable. But I'm not a short woman, and these were really way too long on me. In order to have them hit above the ankle as pictured, I had to have bunches of fabric around my knees or crotch. I'm 5'7 and this was a problem both with the medium and the large. (I ordered two pairs, one after the other, so I obviously liked them otherwise. But they're very long.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed ! Not the same as last year's! Bought last year's leggings. Truly Great. Bought another pair last month. NOT SO GREAT. Madewell changed the content when I compared the fabric tags. The new leggings are way too shiny and don't have that comfortable knit, cotton feel. Please Bring Back the old leggings!

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 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and diverse, my go to pair! I bought one pair and went back for two more. I am a graduate student and work in a salon-spa, I can wear these to class, work, study in, or out & about. I've worn, washed, and dried them several times they still hold up great. I'm 5'4 and 122lbs. In jeans I wear either a 25 or 27 depending on the day. I guessed my size for these leggings and grabbed a size small, but they stretch and towards the end of the day do feel a little bit bigger. I would 100% recommend these. I'm actually purchasing a pair for my cousin as I write this.
