Control top leggings with lace trim
Updated review after a day out with them
I previously left these leggings a good review after I tried them on for an hour or so. unfortunately, at the end of the day I noticed my leggings were ripped in the middle by the crotch area. I'm so disappointed, especially because they are a sturdy material but obviously poorly made. I don't understand how after ONE day they ripped. These leggings are made for BIGGER girls therefore should provide support where we NEED it the most. The thing that alarms me the most is that these leggings didn't even fit me tight and yet they ripped. I was willing to look over the fact of the control top not doing it's job because it was so loose in the tummy ( I weigh 245lbs and got C-D size).
I jumped the gun earlier and already bought 2 more but as soon as they get here I will be returning them. I do not recommend this product to anyone. Ladies DON'T BUY them. I know I tend to read reviews and sometimes ignore them if the product looks good enough. Don't make the same mistake I did. You will waste your money and time, trust me.

Really not for "big gals"
First, the good, the leggings were a nice heavy material and "held in" the little imperfections. Problem was the control top was so intense, that I found them very uncomfortable. The waistband came up to the bottom of my bra line. I like the extra panel in the crotch area, and hopefully that will prevent splits in the inside seams of my thighs which is what I have a problem with.
The size is funny on these. You can choose an A-B or a C-D and the size chart information online has no definition of what these sizes mean. I had to call a representative to find out what size what good for me. He recommended the C-D, which, obviously , is the larger size. I found the leggings to be very long (I'm 5'6" and 200 lbs) and they would gather at the knees. If I pulled them up as far as they would go, then I'd have "camel toe". And, the most important thing is, there is no WAY these would fit a woman larger than me. The C-D size on the packaging indicated that a 300 lb woman could wear these. That's just not possible.
I like control tops, but these were too extreme. I like style, but more important, I like to be at least comfortable and able to breathe.
