I finally decided to go for it and check out Fabletics leggings when I saw the 2 for $24 deal. Let me say that my review is based on the fact that I only paid $12 a pair. I would be returning them if I had spent full price or even half of the normal price.
The feel of the material is reasonably soft, but the fit is strange. Yes, they live up to the "powerhold" name, but not any more than leggings I have bought elsewhere. And they don't stretch comfortably like other leggings, which makes them a struggle to put on and take off.
I wear a size 4 to 6 normally, and I'd say these lean toward the smaller sizes, but this kind of sizing is subjective. They're basically comfortable.
The weirdest thing is the ridiculously long, white, scratchy tag hanging from the inside of the rear waistline. I can't seriously believe that anyone would pay $85 for a pair of leggings from a company that hasn't figured out how to go tagless.
I'm not returning them. For the price I paid, I'll keep them. But I gave the 2nd pair to my daughter, and I don't plan to buy more.
