Overall, these are good leggings, very comfortable. They keep their shape well, the fabric has a nice feel, and, despite the recommendation of hand washing, they so far seem to do just fine in the machine on gentle cycle.
But they're long—very very long. The information given in the product description doesn't give an accurate idea of just how long these are. The only mention of length says that a small measured approximately 28 inches in the inseam. The site's sizing guides don't give any advice on inseam length for bottoms sized as S/M/L/XL, except for certain specific brands. So unless you're buying the specific size the measurement is from, there's no good way to predict the actual length.
I bought two pairs in XL. My inseam is 28 inches, so I figured these would likely be a little long, possibly up to 32 inches long. No big deal; I don't mind a little excess scrunched around the ankle. But when I tried them on, the full length—without any real stretching—came over my feet past the middle of the arch. And I do not have small feet.
So I checked the measurement. I measured the inseam at 36 inches! I can't recall having ever seen a pair of leggings with a 36-inch inseam that wasn't labeled as a "tall" size. If a typical person with a 28-inch inseam is roughly five foot four (as I am), that would mean the XL is made for someone at least six feet tall—and that assumes that all the added height is in the legs, which it rarely is.
Don't get me wrong—I'm happy with these leggings, and would readily buy them again. I just wish the description would accurately reflect that they are much longer than one might otherwise expect.
