I own two pair of these, and they have a fantastic fit. I wear them for exercise most of the time, but also for just hanging out. They are not as tight as a legging, but skim your legs for a flattering fit that you won't feel uncomfortable wearing in to the grocery store or running errands. The fabric is smooth and they hold their shape well. I plan to buy at least one more pair to keep as a back-up because I am always reaching for these.
