by TipnosfromAmazing!I am seriously in LOVE with these! For an exercise capri tight, the things I look for and found in these are that they stay up while working out and wearing in general, they flatter my bum/legs, they don't show underwear lines and they are not in the least bit sheer or see through. On top of that, they are super soft and incredibly comfortable to wear and move in. I use these most often for pilates, and so I especially love that they stay up throughout my sessions. The color is true to what is seen in the picture and I just got my normal size and they worked great. Since buying these I have put them through the washer and drier several times and they have not changed a bit from when I first got them. Also, about the stitch popping sound when putting them on that others have commented on, I have experienced that with some moving comfort tights (for me this hasn't happened with this pair), but overall it hasn't been an issue. The pair I have that does that only does some of the time, and I don't see any damage to them... It'd be nice if it never happened, but given how amazing these are other than that, I am still completely satisfied.

by Outdoor enthusiast and workout fanaticfromNot sold on these pantsSince there are not any reviews, I felt compelled to write one. This is my first purchase of any Moving Comfort items. I've always heard great things. When these went on sale, I snatched them up. I'm 5'4", 126 lbs, larger in the bum and thigh area. I ordered a small. I'd say they fit pretty well. The waist band is fairly solid, which is great, however it doesn't allow for a lot of stretch-to pull over my aforementioned bum and thighs. When stretched too much, you can hear the stitches breaking/popping. The same goes for the ties at the calves. They're easily adjustable, but if you want to pull them all the way tight the stitches pop. I can already see the stitches coming out after only 2 wears. You don't have to pull so tight, but when you aren't super tall adjusting the length (which is only slight) is essential. The pants are nice and thick. No issues with them being see through. They are a little warm, but seeing as how fall is here I think they will be fine. I've used them for 2 different types of classes-weight training and a sort of Zumba inspired class. I did get several compliments on them. The ladies liked them. Still not sure if I really want to keep these. I'm going to try them for running next and that will be the make or break point. I'd say you're money may be better spent else where. (If you go to the Moving Comfort site directly, you can read reviews there as well-although I get the impression that different colors fit and feel a little differently.)
