After reading the other reviews, I went ahead and ordered the XL. (I'm 5'7" and 140#, with a 31 inch inseam. My normal size in standard tights and nylons is a Medium). The XL fit great, without pulling down in the crotch, and they stayed up just fine in the waist without binding. I ordered all three colors, and all three are very useable colors. The grey is dark, but definitely lighter than the black, and the brown is more chocolate in color. I've worn mine a few time with skirts and heels, and they look like normal, winter tights. The insides are lightly brushed or fleecy for extra warmth, and they kept my legs warm enough for cold evenings, when our weather was hitting freezing temperatures at night. The only con is there are two back seams on the butt, which I had to adjust a bit to get use to them and make them comfortable. But once the tights were on, I forgot about the seams, and no longer felt them.
