I move for a living. Even tho i buy the fancy leggings, I wear them out easily. (The cloth over the buttock goes first because i, well, spread my legs a lot and the fibers just cant hang in there that long. (I am a biomechanist.) These hold their shape well and are more comfortable than other pairs of leggings. I really dont even like leggings that much bc they are not as comfy as baggy pants, but these are comfy and i dont want to take them off as soon as i get home from work.
