Knit Leggings

Knit Leggings is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 116.
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 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 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 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 3 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Leggings I searched around for the "best" leggings and ended up purchasing Madewell leggings. They are nice...I can tell they should last awhile. However, true to reviews, there is a slight sheen; they are over 80% cotton but don't really feel "cottony". Also, they seem a bit long and really bunch up at my knees. They also don't stay put just above the ankle and instead creep further down which isn't ideal for ankle booties. I am 5'6 and ordered an XL as I wear a size 14 pant but am wondering if a L would be better?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shiny and see-through I don't know why these leggings received good reviews. The ones I received were shiny and opaque. In normal lighting you could see the leggings shining from a mile away, it's that noticeable. Also, these leggings run long, as they were 4 inches too long for me. I am 5'4.

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!
