Compressive yet stretchy!
Definitely size up one size from skin fabric Shakti size! These are compressive but the material is thick yet stretchy. It’s so comfortable!! I’m 4’10” and these bunch up a little at my ankles but it actually doesn’t look bad. I have a short torso and these are very high waisted and will probably roll down as I stand/sit but that’s what most of the seamless leggings do on me anyways. I’m very impressed with these leggings!
These are so compressive and very warm!! Great for cold weather running and the color is gorgeous!! Very long and love the pockets.
Pacific were TTS for me...
I sized up due to reviews but could have stayed true...easily and been comfy...guess it depends on body shape? 1/ they smell funny - like a vat of Elmer's - hoping washing them will remedy this 2/ the color is gorgeous - pacific may be my top fave 3/ I'm 62" tall so I had a mega-cuff lol the bunching wasn't flattering on my body shape - may try just pushing them up...or seeing a tailor 4/ for 16$ they're just fine 5/ the band rolls but I'm doughy and could have sized down but IDK if that would have made the band roll more firmly #bustedCanOfBiscuits 6/ short torso so unless the band is rolling, the matching Sierra meets the waistband
Not as good as the regular Shakti
I love the look and feel of the regular Shakti pants—they’re perfectly soft and comfortable. Unfortunately, the ribbed version is a miss for me. They’re not soft or very comfortable at all. They’re stiff and thick. I don’t think I’ll ever wear them, but since they were a final sale, I’m unable to return.
Really high quality
These leggings are such high quality, especially for the price! They are slimming and flattering and the ribbed fabric has a slight sheen to them that looks great. These are high compression and I did end up sizing up after reading other reviews and I’m glad I did. Im usually a small, bordering on medium, and the medium fits me great. These are full length on my 5’8” body, which I love. This fabric is a little thicker, so I won’t be wearing them outdoors for summer workouts, but really look forward to wearing these for casual wear and exercise this fall. I was on the fence about these for so long and I’m so happy I finally got a pair!
