Genuinely high waist, which is good. Also:
- more like heavy footless tights, not leggings
- seams coming apart and a run/hole right in the front after wearing for the first time, just for an afternoon at home
- the top is weirdly like shapewear, so higher compression than I like in just leggings. "Flattering", I guess (I hate that word), but if I wanted shapewear I'd buy shapewear.
Considering I got about four hours' worth of wear out of them and have emailed Target requesting a refund, I'd say definitely not worth anywhere close to $18.
They are VERY high waisted but they are indeed slightly see through. They aren’t true “fleece” lined. They are just a warmer leggings than your standard . I bought the 2x (a size bigger than my usual) I’m a 16-18 and they fit well just like everyone else said .. Snug and decently soft however they aren’t true non see through fleece leggings. Still debating on if I’ll keep them .
I have mixed feelings about these. I do own 3 pair, because they are incredibly comfortable and fit perfectly. They aren’t thick like normal fleece lined, but warmer then regular, which works for me because I don’t like to feel hot. The down side is these things pill like crazy and the seams on the inner thigh/crotch area get thinner and thinner until there is a hole. I’m lucky if I get a whole winter season out of a pair. I keep buying them because they fit so good and are the perfect high waist. Just wish they were cheaper since the leggings them selves don’t last.
I have searched high and low for the perfect fleece lined legging that would keep me a little warmer during the winter months with not much luck. I thought I had finally found "the ones" with these. They fit wonderfully, with the perfect amount of compression (I don't like my leggings too tight) and a great high waist fit, never feel like I need to tug/pull them up to readjust. Unfortunately I took the tags off and wore them before I realized that they are see through. The worst for something you were hoping to be able to wear out in public. I have also noticed some pilling after just one wash. These have the potential to be great. Just wish they were thicker. I normally love A New Day, and Target clothes in general, these just missed the mark.
I expected these to be thicker. "Fleece lined" isn't accurate so much as "fuzzy on the inside." It's not thick pill. They looked threadbare very quickly and now can only be worn under other items as my skin shows through.
