The leggings are amazingly soft like the ones I used to get before I gained a bit - well a lot of weight. I bought the 3x since I don't fit in the 2x leggings I have and I was amazed by how large they feel. I have room to stretch and move which is really good and they don't look distorted at all. The print is beautiful and although I was hesitant to buy leggings in black because I've been trying to get away from black pants for summer, these are very comfortable and light. I've not tried the squat test on them yet and I have a pretty big butt but they feel comfortable and I'm very happy.
