"These leggings are great, very stretchy, very comfy and the detail is real cute. I'd say they run true to size. I got the charcoal color...they look a little more blue online, but they are definitely gray with black detail. The waistband does NOT cut into you, it's quite forgiving, so no fear of the dreaded muffin top. The material and pretty pattern make these a cut above the average legging."
