This is my second pair of Sculptor leggings and I LOVE them! Last year I had purchased the capri Sculptor leggings and thought I would get these longer ones, and to this day both still look great. No pilling, fading or shrinking and more importantly, no wearing out in the innermost thighs due to friction. I wear them for jogging, stepping classes, so goes to tell you that the material is of great quality. I also like be the fact that they stay in place. They are so confortable and the more I wash them the better they get! Sure at first they look really thick, but after a couple of washes the fabric softens and the fit is even better. And unlike some other reviews i've read, they are not see through. It's the elastane fibres that reflect the light. People have to learn to read the product description and even go to the store when in doubt.
