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 substantial fabric What i like best about these leggings is that they are made of good quality material, and are not see through like a lot of leggings are. The overall fit was close to perfect. They are just a little too long. I am 5' 5", weigh 140 lbs, typically wear a size 6. I purchased medium leggings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and long enough! Stats: 5'7", 130#; long legs and usually leggings and pants run a bit short. These leggings are perfect! They reach just past my ankles, are thick and comfortable, do not bag, and wash up beautifully. Very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leggings I own I wish I would've bought more. These are definitely worth the money, regular priced or on sale, stock up! The quality is so good. They aren't like shapers, but they still hold you in without feeling like you'll cut off circulation to your vital organs. I've got curves and inner thighs, but wearing these didn't really put too much emphasis on my trouble spots. Also having said that, there is no piling in the inner thigh area that tends to happen with other leggings, so these are made to last. They feel smooth and create a smooth look all over. I'm in love! Never want to take them off. Not see through either, major plus. Other reviewers have commented on them being shiny or something, but I like it and they're pretty opaque. Good stuff here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy comfort I am 5'4" and 130lbs and the size small fits well and sits below my natural waist but snugly above my hips. These are comfortable, do not bag out during a day (or even two days) of wear, and did not shrink noticeably in the dryer. They collect a little at my ankles, which is what I expect for full-length leggings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic leggings Ordered these and when I initially caught a glimpse of them in person, I had a passing thought that they'd be too small. But no! When I put them on, they stretch to fit beautifully and in fact sort of compress what you want compressed and lift what you want lifted. These magic leggings flatten my protruding gut so I look slimmer overall, but still shapely in a way that is considered aesthetically and acceptably pleasing. The sheen mentioned in some other reviews is not as prominent as I had feared it would be. I am decidedly anti-sheen and anti-glitter when it comes to my clothing. The sheen here is quite subtle, so the leggings would work fine for most people in most everyday settings except the most formal of workplaces. These are not shiny workout leggings; they are out-and-about leggings that keep the shape of your crotch and butt from being so clearly apparent to strangers (my pet peeve with the leggings trend, which this pair solves!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Leggings in My Closet Leggings are a staple in my closet and I have a wide collection of them. By far, the Madewell knit leggings are my favorite and go-to. I've begun to replace my other leggings with these and the High-Rise versions. They are thick enough that you don't have to worry about bending over and exposing your underwear. With leggings, I'm never sure about sizing (have tended to buy a size up to help mitigate from the sheerness when it's too tight); but I've been able to buy my normal size and they are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Leggings This is my first legging from Madewell. It's very well made, the fabric is thick and long for my 5'9" height. There is a slight sheen to it when worn (because of the stretch), but it doesn't take away from the overall style of the legging. The elastic band is thick and wider than most leggings - which I love - most leggings have a thinner band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice leggings i previously purchased my leggings from another company, they revised theirs to remove the cotton and increased their price. so i searched for some one else who had cotton leggings. I found these they are mostly cotton and at the same price my old ones were. they fit nice and are cotton, maybe a little more stretch to them but i am sure i will like the change, they have a nice look to them and hold parts in that need to be so thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall girl friendly! I'm tall (5'10") and typically wear size 29 pants (in the taller length). I bought a medium and they're a perfect fit. Very comfortable. Good quality. VERY slightly see-through so remember not to wear leggings as pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great leggings! I have a medium waist, but big thighs-- i have fondly been called quadzilla- so I opted for a large. It's hard to find leggings that work with this body type, but these do the trick! They are not see through and the waist does not fall down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect leggings I have been looking for the perfect pair of leggings to replace my old favorite pair that is just too worn out to wear. These are my new favorites! They do have a but of a shine in the light but it doesn't bother me at all. and they are so so comfortable!!!
Date published: 2015-10-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Leggings These are by far my favorite leggings. They are a heavier knit than most, and very stretchy, so no bagginess or bunching. They're a little long on me (I'm 5'3"), but not too bad. They're perfect with boots and a long shirt!
Date published: 2015-10-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I received this in time before a flight I had to catch and delightfully wore them on the airplane with a long flannel shirt and ankle boots. I love these. They are not see through, however there is a shimmer I recognized from other reviewers but it wasn't anything disappointing. I love these, fit great and feel great! I ordered a medium. I am about 5'6, 150 lbs., pear shaped and these fit just right. Definitely recommend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wardrobe staple I've been in the market for leggings for months, and these fit the bill. Only two 'complaints'--they have a bit of a shiny look due to the spandex I'm guessing, and run a little long on me (I'm 5'3" and bought a medium). However, they're a great thickness, not see-through (yay for colored undies!), don't stretch out and super duper comfortable. Overall, I absolutely recommend.
Date published: 2015-10-15

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really, truly opaque Super soft, stretchy but firm, comfy leggings that really, truly are opaque. If I bend my knee and look very, very closely, I can just barely see thru the fabric to skin. Nice, wide waist band, on the high rise side in a good way. I'm 5'8 and these reach an inch or two above my ankle bone. I feel confident wearing these out of the house. There is a wee bit of shine when stretched but I'd rather have shine that sheer. Get a pair, you'll be happy.
Date published: 2015-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for someone who is tall even! Not see through, great for me at 5'11 in terms of length, and just overall a great quality! I had heard they redid the seams on this so that holes weren't as easy to happen. They are great!
Date published: 2015-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect wardrobe staple The fit is true to size, the fabric is thick but not bulky. They are a quality piece of clothing. I will wear them often this fall and winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Leggings I have been having a ton of trouble finding leggings this winter season that were not too thin/see through and would hold up. These are great leggings, I ordered 4 pairs to have some back up for next year incase they discontinue them. Perfect thickness and good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from high quality I was nervous that these leggings would be thin and would rip easily when I first ordered them but when they arrived I was happy to find they were very thick and high quality. I have been wearing them nonstop for months now and they have no holes and are not becoming thin at all. If you are not sure about getting them you should because they will last you for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Yet! After a few years of buying and trying different leggings I finally found the right ones. They are perfect in style, fit and fabric. You can't go wrong with these and I'm buying another pair right now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great legging As far as leggings go, these are very durable. sure, you can buy some for $15 but after a few washes the material thins. these will last a long time in my closet for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leggings I ordered two pairs of these leggings and have them been wearing them frequently - a respite from my usual denim-heavy wardrobe. The material is excellent quality and very forgiving. At 5'3" and 135 lbs, I ordered a medium and found them a little long. I probably could have gotten away with a small in these. They also wash well (on cold, hang to dry). Overall very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These have already become my new favorite thing to wear. The material is nice and thick and not see through, and very supportive without being uncomfortable. I am 5'4/120 lbs and the small fits great. They are a little long but I prefer them that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leggings ever, great price for Madewell quality. I got these for Christmas last year and I've worn them to death. Sadly, after owning them for around a year, they have a small hole on the back of the leg and the fabric is beginning to tear around the crotch area, but they were seriously pants I wore almost daily and occasionally worked out in so the wear and tear makes sense (I opt for jeans over leggings most days now, haha!) I found them to be pretty true to size, a little tight when I first got them but they stretched out nicely. The fabric is nice and thick, you won't see anything through them and the thickness of the fabric makes pantylines less noticeable. The knit fabric is really nice and sturdy and looks very flattering. I plan on purchasing another pair since these are back on the website, can't wait. The price is really really reasonable for a great pair of leggings, it's harder than it looks to find the perfect pair and these fit the bill. Would DEFINITELY recommend them! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leggings purchase I've ever made! These are the greatest leggings. They are thick enough that they're not see-through and don't show underwear lines, but not too thick that your legs can't breathe. They are so comfortable, I literally wear them for days straight. If you're trying to decide, get them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable. A really nice pair of leggings. High-quality fabric. Will be good for colder days as they are heavier than most leggings. I wear size 6 and the Medium fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I never thought I would fall in love with a pair of leggings, but these are easily the best leggings I have ever worn. The fabric is a great weight (not see-through at all) and the fit is perfection. These are so comfortable and flattering and I've worn them for the past three days without them stretching out or sagging. I'm definitely ordering at least one more pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, quality leggings I like that these leggings are a little thicker than others in my wardrobe. They are very comfortable and fit pretty true to size (maybe a little on the large side). I got them on sale, so they were also a great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and TTS Love these leggings! They're made of higher quality fabric that stretches comfortably, but that isn't see-through in the joints or wider areas. They fit TTS as far as I can tell. I will be buying more of these in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leggings ever! I purchased my first pair of Madewell knit leggings in the spring and have purchase two more pair since. The quality is exceptional and I love the sheen of the fabric. They are the "go-to" staple in my closet. They look great dressed up or dressed casual. Love them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, great fit I'm a 12 and generally go for leggings that are more like pantyhose, but these knits ones are fantastic. Usually by the end of the day I can't wait to peel off my leggings but these are so comfortable, fully opaque, and the elastic waist really keeps them in place. Would definitely recommend, especially to fellow curvy ladies!

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 4 out of 5 by from Runs small My daughter bought a pair last year & this legging became her favorite. The price was great, wore well & was very comfortable, We decided to purchase another pair & selected a small which was what we got last year. This year although Madewell said they updated the legging we purchased another small. This year they def. run small so we will need to exchange.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but... These are good quality leggings and seem like they're going to hold up well. My only complaint is they have that dreaded silvery sheen when they're on. I really hate that sheen. I ordered these online so I couldn't tell, but other than that they're really nice and they're just for around the house anyway so I'm going to keep them and just deal with the sheen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad I bought the gray ones. The fabric feels nice: somewhat soft, not too thin, not really thick. I can see that they're a wee bit see-through when I bend my knee. The legs are nice and long. My main complaint is that they're weirdly low-rise, especially for leggings. I generally love low-rise jeans, but these leggings are so low-rise that I keep wanting to clutch and tug them up without thinking. It's not that they're too small (I'm 115# and ordered size small); it's just the way they're cut. All in all, it's not a huge problem, but it makes me glad I got them on sale. I don't think I would have kept them if I'd had to pay full-price for them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, thick leggings Really like the thickness of these leggings. They feel sturdy, and don't lose shape. I like that the have a very slight shine to them. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wish the waistline hit a little higher up. I am 5'8" and 125 lbs and have 3 pairs in a small- the length is nice, too. I wear them with casual, or slightly dressed up outfits and even to the gym. I find myself still tugging them up occasionally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy with a hint of shimmer These leggings are comfortable and super-stretchy. The waistband can sit a little high. I normally wear an XS but took a Small for extra give. There is a hint of shimmer to it but I didn't find too obvious in the black color I purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from favorite leggings Overall these are my favorite leggings. My only complaint is that I ordered 2 pairs within the past month and the first fit perfectly, while the second pair seemed a little more stretched out. Not sure why the sizing wasn't completely consistent as I haven't gained or lost any weight.
Date published: 2016-02-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not my type The heather coal was more of a heather grey, which was way lighter than I was expecting. I am 5'5", 155 lb, and ordered large. This size created a fabric gap above my butt, due to fitting my thighs but not my waist. The legs are a tad long and rise a tad shorter than I liked. Might fit someone else's preferences, but I'll be returning.
Date published: 2015-12-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality, but runs too long! These are super comfortable and warm. The band is just wide enough to stay comfortable all the time. Only gripes I have is that they're not completely matte and they're WAY too long for me. I'm 5' 2'', 115 lbs and bought a small.
Date published: 2015-12-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, thick but sometimes see-through I initially was ready to give these a five-star review...until the day I chose to wear hot pink underwear and they become see-through. I'd prefer to be able to not worry what I'm wearing underneath, but they are very comfy, very thick and, when you can't see through them, have a nice sheen that makes them look high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect length but a little shiny. Pros: Length! I'm 5'10" and am always so excited when leggings actually reach my ankles. They are super comfortable too. Cons: I wish they were a little less shiny in the sun and a little less see through. They're not the most see through leggings I've seen, but they are definitely on the thinner, more see through side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fabric and length, elastic waist way too wide I actually loved the fabric and fit--nice length and high quality--but the waist band was really wide compared to the overall fit of the pant, meaning it isn't actually fitted around the waist, almost like the pant is cut wider at the top than overall. I am 5'9", 140 pounds and usually wear a medium in all Madewell. I would have kept these if not for the odd waist issue--the rest of the pant is great (I didn't think it was see-through as other reviews describe). Returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice leggings These leggings are very nice. They are thick, yet soft and long enough (I'm 5'8). I'm usually a 28/29 in Madewell jeans and got a medium. I agree that they have a bit of shimmer like others have said, but I have yet to find any leggings that don't have that. They are not see through. I recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy chic Love these leggings. They are just thick enough to keep you snug without threat of overstretching to show off your unmentionables. But they are also slimming and make you look more put together. I'll be wearing these a whole lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a good review My original review was 5 stars. But after a second wear, it has lost a star. I love almost everything about it. It reminds me of a more expensive brand I used to buy- it's thick (I only wear leggings during cooler seasons so the thickness makes it warm and cozy), it's a little long so you get the right amount of bunch at the ankles, the price is spot on, and it's made well (no pun intended). But it loses a star because I wish it was more narrow at the ankle. Instead, it's a bit loose (and I think that looks a little funny). They are still worth buying because of the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, way too long even in the XS Wanted to love these leggings and they are a good quality. The only problem is if your 5'4and shorter they are way too long. It would be nice if Madewell offered a petite size for us shorter people. Otherwise they're great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seriously stretchy The "extra stretch" touted in the product description gives these leggings the sturdiness of athletic wear. Also makes them shinier than most casual leggings. I found them to run a bit narrow and long -- inseam on size XXS is 30" (unstretched) and the waistband/hips were quite snug on my size 24 frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy customer Very happy with my purchase. I wish they offered a "short" legging option, the leggings are a bit long for me so I will only be wearing them with boots but that's fine with me. I love how they feel and they look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well made. Overall i love this product. They are long, and great quality. They are a bit thicker than i had expected. But perfect for winter time! I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only lasts about 3 months I love these leggings and I continue to buy them because I really like the fit, HOWEVER be warned that these only last about 3 months before holes in thighs and crotch begin. I've had about 3 pairs so far and this always happens around the 3 month mark- I wear them around 3 times a week. I really wish the quality was better and would last longer. I will also say that I'm not a huge fan of the fabric change that happened either, just a tad too shiny.

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 3 out of 5 by from They changed them :( These used to be my favorite leggings - to the extent that I would buy 2 at a time which would stand my abuse for at least a full year and multiple washes before finally quitting on me. They used to be thick and sturdy, and as a girl with quite a backside see-through leggings have always been a problem. Madewell had solved this problem. Unfortunately, they changed the formula and aside from being totally see-through they tear in the inner-thigh area within a few months of wear :( I am soo disappointed. Change them back!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I had such high hopes for these given all the rave reviews and I was so disappointed when they arrived. First they are very shiny and second they are not as thick as I was hoping they would be. I do like the fit. Very tight with a lot of support so they don’t loosen as you wear. Overall these are just okay.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay pair of leggings They were a little too small for me, which is fine! They were hard to get on, but once they are on they don’t feel too tight. I didn’t love the look of them. They looked a little bit cheap and they were shiny. When you look at them straight on, there is a shiny line from top to bottom in the middle of your leg. I think other people might like them, but they just weren’t my style. They are also a good thickness. You can’t see through them when they’re on, which is always great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the Fabric Yet I'm dissapointed I have purchased this style before at Madewell and I don't know if you guys changed the size standard but the size Medium looks and fits like a small. It is very, very small and tight. I think I should return them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too thin It's good for summer/ fall, but definitely not for the coming winter. I read the reviews saying it was thick with good quality. I was kinda disappointed. It's comfortable and it is just comfortable. If you are looking for thick with good quality leggings...hmmm not the best choice. True to size, I ordered xs and I'm 5'5, 104lb they are tight enough.
