These leggings are great. What I love most about them is the material, which is exactly like the confidence collection. I have a 28” waist and 43” hips with thick thighs and a big butt and I ordered a M. I would say that they take a lot of effort to get on, but once they are on, it makes it all worth it. They are so comfortable and sleek! They literally mold to your body, which makes me think a large would also work for me. They are tight, but they aren’t uncomfortable behind the knees when you bend them, which says a lot about the fabric’s flexibility. Overall great leggings!
