Rated 5 out of 5 by possumdog7 Favourite Yoga Pants
After falling in love with yoga, I decided to invest in some good yoga pants and I tried every major brand yoga pant out there. These were by far the most comfortable and best fitting. I'm 5'8", 150#, a busty apple, slender thru the hips and thighs with a 31.5" inseam and generally wear medium in pants. I wear these in both medium and small. They both fit me with the smalls giving me just a bit more compression. I liked these even better than Spanx's more expensive offering, the Active pant. I have a long waist and like the fit of these as they have a fairly long/high rise that comes up to my belly button. In fact, that's probably my favourite thing about these pants over other yoga pants because most yoga pants have an extremely low rise. These On-the-Go pants sit at my natural waist. I wear them as a layer under ski bibs and fishing waders too so I can slip out of those pretty much anywhere, say in a parking lot, and be dressed to go on to my next activity. Since I'm large busted I find the flare legs balance out my proportions better than capris or skinny leg pants. If you have a long inseam, you might find these just a hair short in the leg. I usually wash and hang to dry but I have put them in dryer on low heat a few times and they haven't seemed to shrink up. The crotch has a gusset panel that helps minimize the lines of your "lady"-wish it was bigger and more integrated into the design of the pant. (I have some men's hunting pants with a huge diamond shaped gusset in crotch that are the most comfortable, forgiving pants in my delicate area.) I do a lot of strenuous activities in these pants and they smooth me out without being uncomfortably tight. I would love to have them in more colours, graphite and dark navy, but colour doesn't seem to be Spanx's forte. As with all Spanx and shapewear, fit isn't everything, its the only thing! Try a few different sizes to get the fit right, you'll be glad you did. These pants will make a useful contribution to your wardrobe if you're "on-the-go" a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jill77 Flattering and very smoothing!
I "almost" feel like I have firm, slim thighs in these! I ordered a medium and am happy with the length because I will wear them with 1"-2" heels. At not quite 5'5" they might be a little long if I were wearing them with running shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KureBeachGirl Slimming style with lots of stretch
Haven't worn yet since am saving for cooler temps here at the beach. Length was perfect for me, I am 5'8.5. As a plus size, I will wear with a longer top or tee. I will be able to use these pants both at the gym and when I am out and about. Liked the feel of the fabric and they are very slimming.

I'm 5'4" and knew this might not work for me and I was right - they were 5 to 6 inches too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlondeDiva Slip them on and go, day into night
I do not have pretty legs, so, I wear long pants all year long.
These have a fab moderate shaper lining that is most comfortable, does not roll up and is cool..while the outer pants have a fab drape.
These are perfect for anyone that does not wear leggings.
I LOVE them big time...and honestly, I am thinking about ordering another pair in case they are discontinued...hope they are always here...in fact, I like them better than the firm shaper Spanx pants with the seam in back, no kidding.
These pants have a fab look from day to night, no lines, no tight waist.
Wear for work, casual, even dress up..they have it all

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat70 Love these pants!
I now have three pairs and wear two for social and one for jazzercise class. They dont shrink or fade, and they pack great, too. I wish they came in more colors - I would buy them all!!!

I bought these in medium and in large. I wear the medium to my Pilates classes and they hold me in shape and are perfect for all kinds of movements. I wear the large out with nice tops that cover my butt a little and even heels. They don't look too tight or like workout pants. They just look like nice black pants. Spanx stuff never fades in color either, which I really love! Plus, at my age, you want to be comfy as well as looking good. These do the trick!
