I kept these, but I still have some wishes to return them when I take them out. I got a small at 5'7" and 135lbs (and while granted, I should've gotten a medium), the small is still much more restricting than I thought. I have taken it out on runs and am deciding not to anymore as I am always having to pull them up. In the method of pulling at the calf, then moving the excess to the knees and up the thigh...
The waist was still a little too big so it would not stay tight up there and I would have to do my pulling maneuver every few hundred meters. They are attractive though if just hanging around the house, so I'll use them as leggings.

(I am 5'11" size 14-16) So I ordered these in the large just like the power tights ( which are awesome!) and these were so crazy tight in the legs, with not enough stretch in the material to work with, that I sent them back, hoping that the legs in the XL would be more forgiving. I don't have small legs, but they were like a hard core compression stocking from the ankle to mid thigh, which made an uncomfortable bunch up behind the knee. I kept having to pull them up as the nice flat waistband is no help in keeping them in place. So, because I love the color sooo much, I sent them back for the XL and they are indeed more forgiving in the legs, so I will do as suggested by another reviewer and open up the nice flat waistband and put some elastic in it, as the top of the pants is more of a 16-18 size. It wont be hard to do and they will still look decent, I think. If you aren't inclined to alter these, best give them a pass. Although, a certain body type, where you carry your weight in your stomach/rear end and have super skinny legs, might work just fine in these. BTW, They are long enough for my 33" legs.

I really wanted these tights, so for the second time in less than a week, I decided to have the elastic waist band replace, rather than spending the money to return them. I think it was a good decision because now the waistband fits and problen's solved.
