Seriously, when people say this fabric is "soft as butter, fits like a glove", they are not kidding! As a dancer, I've tried every athletic pant, ballet tight, etc. out there, and these combine the softness of my most favorite ballet tights with the compression of my favorite workout leggings, BUT WITHOUT THE RESTRICTION! I've truly never worn a pant like this. It forms to my body so well and keeps me held in and confident, but also feels like I have nothing on so I can move 100% freely in them. I never want to take them off (and some days I don't ha!). I don't know what they're secret is, but I am sold and will be accumulating every color! Oh, and I forgot to mention I get a million compliments every time I wear them, and I love my matching cheetah print bra. Thank you Gold Elite for making the pants of my dreams!!!
