Perfect! A size medium fits my 5'10", 135 pound, size 8-10 frame. They keep their shape after being worn, the seams can't be felt, the waistband is soft, wide, and comfortable (and holds up!), and they are so comfortable! I wish they'd been a little longer, though --- a few inches above my ankle bone. Wool socks take up the slack.

I tried this exact brand/style/size of leggings on in a retail store and loved them (but didn't buy them because of the price), so I was delighted to see them on sale thru Sierra Trading Post just weeks later. HOWEVER, while they were listed as `Discontinued', they must have been irregulars. They were much too tight and not soft like the pair I had previously tried. I was very disappointed.

These leggings are as described - a superfine, thin base layer. Definitely see-through and serve their purpose as leggings to be worn underneath another layer, otherwise your underwear will be showing. Seems like the material is thin enough to snag easily, but I have been wearing them a full day and they perform up to Icebreaker standards as far as comfort goes. And with the Black Friday deal I snatched them up at $26 - steal of a deal.
I ordered a size small and am 5'2", 105 lbs. Slightly long in the legs but otherwise a comfy fit!

these are nice fabric however size up up up! I am usually a medium but these fit like a small! Shortish on the legs though I'm tall, a nice thinner layer, not itchy at all,
Material is not very durable though and while pulling them up just a little while under sweat pants and my finger poked right through the leggings- not through the pants at all. I'll sew it but it seems the material just tears easy. My finger went thru like butter.

I ordered these with a pair of Ivanhoes and much preferred the Ivanhoes. Why did they put a stiff elastic waistband on these leggings? In general I just did not like the way they fit including the lower rise that requires a longer top to give warmth to the mid section. But others used to a lower rise may prefer this.

Another pair of icebreakers to add to my wardrobe. You can't beat wool to stay warm. I guess the term 'leggings' are what they are called these days, I call them long johns. They are my constant until spring. Love them. They are great under jeans. You never get too warm or get drafts. They are perfect. Since icebreaker makes different weights, you just choose the weight according to the temperature outside. Since the prices are so incredible, you can't lose. It's a must have for any one in a winter climate!

I ordered the leggings thinking that they may be similar to the smartwool leggings I had ordered previously. I'm 5'8 and 142 lb and ordered the medium. It fit ok around the waist, but it kind of bunched up around the knees and just seemed to bulky. I also did not like the material that much, a little too scratchy. I was hoping to wear these under a sporty skirt, but they really looked more like underwear. Not what I expected, so they went back.
