Please make sure to double check your sizing. Depending on fit preference, you may want to go down a size. (For example, from a medium to a small.) The waistband is very comfortable and the leggings stretch well.
To insure the best fit, measure the smallest part of your waist, at your belly button, and widest part of your hips around. The waistbands on these leggings are so forgiving and the material has a lot of stretch.
