Rated 1 out of 5 by anynamewilldo keep falling down
I sent this back as they keep falling down - just not enough elastic at the waist - wore them once, very embarrassing, I had to hold them up!

very comfortable but the waistband doesn't keep them up! Wouldn't buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mauvestocking Very strange garment . . .
These leggings are wonderfully soft, a lovely rich black. BUT, although they are my usual size (16), they slip down disastrously, as other reviewers have said. I bought them because not every reviewer seemed to have this problem. But I certainly did. I was doing a supermarket shop when I realised that, the way they were heading, they were going to be round my ankles soon. I just had to keep yanking them up. I can't even wear them at home because I have to spend too much time pulling them up. Until I bought these I never realised what a miracle of engineering most leggings are. Normally they stay up and you just don't think about them!

The main problem is they will not stay up! The waistband is the same material as the leggings with nothing added to fit, such as elastic. Wore them yesterday, when out shopping, and was constantly having to pull them up. Now they are consigned to the bin. A very expensive lesson!

Rated 2 out of 5 by RachL Nice appearance but a bit baggy
These leggings look nice but are a bit baggy around the tummy. I ordered them online so didn't try them on before purchase. I would have expected better quality of fabric for the price.

Great leggings under long top for casual wear - really soft and comfortable/good quality. I'd recommend you go for smaller size than your normal as they're generous (and do stretch!). Can't fault them for this purpose and they seem to wash well.
I wouldn't buy them for exercise though as I've found they persistently slip down or roll at the waist - buy a tighter-fitting sports brand instead!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Caroline2015 Good basic leggings
I found these leggings were well made, fabric was mid-weight and looks durable. They are very stretchy and I found them good for the gym, yoga, etc - perhaps a bit thin to wear outdoors in winter though. Good value for the price.
A definite plus was being able to have them delivered to my local Waitrose, where I could collect them with my shopping rather than having to sort out home delivery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RachG76 Fit like maternity leggings
These leggings have got to be the worst purchase I've ever made from John Lewis, they just don't stay up at the waist, after wearing for one day I was lucky not to end up with them by my knees! Thought I'd bought from the maternity range by mistake.
