i guess you get what you pay for? (i bought these on sale...) these are pretty decent - nice and sturdy stitches, high waist, good length for long legs - but SUPER THIN material. don't expect a thick legging you can wear as full coverage pants. i bent my knee and could see my skin through them. yikes! safe to wear to class over tights or leos and outside of class under tunics or butt-covering things. DEFINITELY HAVE YOUR BUTT COVERED.
