I agree. I keep looking at them thinking of my hockey legs going "yikes" and "why?!" However, seeing these pictures, they really suit the model/educator so I now see that they can look really really nice. Like you say, though, you probably need a certain leg profile to pull this look off.
I just don't get how these would perform during yoga or bar- wouldn't the skirt portion bunch up when raising legs and need readjustments during practice? I like the look, but not sure about the practicality.
Oh my, 8th pic from the bottom; if you buy the pants with the attached skirt make sure the hem of the skirt is below your crotch area, or, several inches above, otherwise it is not a good look! Yikes.Is that a dark gray inkblot I see in some of the photos? Or just a desaturated deep indigo inkblot? I would prefer that print in a dark gray/white rather than deep indigo/white.
The inkblot print is the same, the lighting in the photos just changes how it looks.
So I tried on all 3 of these today- REALLY wanted to need them, but I left empty handed. The grey and "black" (charcoal) are 43% cotton! This is not an appropriate fabric for sweating in. Those two were also SUPER thick at the waist with all that fabric- and therefore tight, but the legs were not so tight on me...even slightly loose. Now the inkblot ones were an entirely different fabric and had no cotton in them at all. If they weren't so nutty I would have bought them. But they weren't versatile like the other ones I could have worn in public. Sigh. I do want some skirted tights!
I bought two of them - the darker (looked like denim) and the ink blot. Taking them home to decide. I really did love them when trying them on. I feel like the "skirt" just looks like a long tank that you're Wearin under the top you put on. I think I might like them or bar because of the bend over factor and the coverage they provide. I don't feel like they'll ride up but I'll do some poses at home to test! And yes, the darker color is VERY think. I will probably take those back.
Anon @7:37 - the light grey you see on that pic is someone who has gone down a size... They lighten up when stretched.
I'm eyeing the rainbow space dyed ones on the website (we are stationed in Japan so no opportunity to try on in store). I have wunder unders in a 4 (snug) and a 6 (too big) and not sure which size to go with. Any suggestions? I'll primarily wear them teaching kids yoga and for casual wear.
