My wife and two daughters take their comfortable house clothes for granted and I decided it was time to make the change. Seriously though, it was a two birds, one stone scenario. I was needing something to wear while running in colder weather and didn't see why women get to hold the monopoly on leggings. I like the shorter legs on these and they fit as I expected they would. They are thick enough that I feel comfortable wearing them in public for working out, but I don't think I'd want to wear them to Target. (maybe Walmart though)
That said, the white can get a little see-through when it gets tight enough, which is a little counter-intuitive when you are getting them for compression. Either way, no complaints and they serve their purpose.
