I was looking for a pair of versatile leggings to wear for yoga but also lounging and travelling - so needed something supportive enough to stay in place while moving, thick enough to guarantee opaqueness, and comfy enough to wear all day - and these are perfect. The high waist is flattering, secure and probably the most comfortable waistband on any piece of clothing I own. The modal material is really soft and breathable, and the textured panelling adds a lovely subtle bit of interest. I never want to take them off! The only slight con is that they are the tiniest bit long on me (I'm 5'4) which causes some wrinkling around the ankle, but it's easily solved by turning them up.
