"Wearing these for three-plus years. Very comfortable, I have a shorter torso, so I wear them higher on my waist. Never had issues with sliding down or discomfort."

"Very comfortable and nice looking."

"These are my go-to black leggings right now. So comfortable and just thick enough. Been thinking about buying the camo, too."

"Really comfy and soft. Have re-ordered a second pair, as I love them so much!"


"I love these leggings. I started wearing after a friend recommended them. Now, it's all I wear! There is no obvious seam like most workout pants, either, so you can dress them up or down."

"Really comfy and flattering leggings, great price, and good quality."


"I'm very pleased with these leggings. I have them in black and gray. The fabric is relatively light but strong. I feel well covered and compressed."


"Love these so much. They fit like a glove and are light material, not see-through."

"The most comfortable lounge leggings I own. I literally love putting them on—super soft and love the color."

"I love them! They have jogger styling but fit like a legging. The drawcord adds a little something special, and it's not too bulky."

"The high waist is just what I was looking for. No rolling down at all. Bought to wear with a tunic and combat boots. Looks great."

"The Essential Leggings are awesome! Glad I bought two; I’ve been living in them. They’re comfortable and supportive. Great buy at a great price."

"I'm obsessed with these leggings. They fit so well, and the leg is so flattering. Super comfortable and true to size."

"These are the perfect pair of leggings. The fabric is soft and just thick enough not to show through like some leggings are. They also hold their shape very well, even after sitting for hours. I just ordered a second pair in Espresso. These are a classic piece for your wardrobe. Buy, buy, buy."

"I love the fit of these! I typically only purchase blacks but I'm venturing out and I love how this color looks on me!"

"I've tried a lot of leggings. These are the best! Very comfortable. Great fit! They tend to stay dark and don't fade after washing."

"Yes! Finally, a new pair of cotton leggings I can wear all day to yoga class, to run errands, or to work layered under a long top. Nordstrom made some many years ago, and mine have nearly worn out. Love these leggings!"

"So happy. So so so happy. These 7/8 leggings are done perfectly."

"Wow! I have three pairs of Zella leggings, and these are, by far, my favorite. Love how soft they are, how well they stay up, and how good they go with everything."

"So comfy and fit well for a basic, cheaper pair of leggings."


"Best leggings I've tried, hands down."
