I absolutely love these leggings and will definitely purchase one or two more pairs. These leggings are super smooth, almost like a velvet material, but don't have the look of velvet. I personally prefer it this way because sometimes textured materials can throw an outfit off. They are not see-through by any means and have great stretch. They are also the perfect length, offering both a high waist and slight bunching at the ankle (I personally hate leggings that stop right at the ankle because they give me a high-waters look). For reference, I am 5'4, 150/160 lbs, 34DDD/36DD in bras with a 33" waist and 41" hips. I typically wear a size 11/12 in jeans and a 10/large in other bottoms.
