Hue makes the best leggings I've found IMO. I buy them at Macy's. They last a long time, have heft and look new and never lose their shape or sag at the knees. They come in different styles and range about $40-45. You can find them also on eBay.


I think Hue has the best leggings.  I have been wearing them for about 5 years.  I have about a dozen pairs.  I think they should have already cornered the market on leggings.  No others come close.

"Yummie Tummie" from HSN.

 

I did size up one size but they have been perfect.

 

I don't dry them but I don't dry many of my clothes.

 

You don't have a knee bump after you stand up from sitting.

 

I will say that nycVixen is a fashion diva and knows her clothes, handbags, shoes etcHeart

My very favorites because of the thicker fabric are Slimmimg Options High Density leggings by Kate & Mallory. I don't think I can post a link here but if you goggle I'm sure you will find them.  Best part is that they are under $40 and wash like a dream, over and over, without losing their shape. Hope you give them a try. I love mine!

I like Women with Control as well. I don't always like the waistband but the fit is usually really good.

 

I wear Diane Gilman pants a lot--and she makes leggings. Her fit is also very good. (HSN)

Re: Looking for suggestions on a pair of great leggings -

I just started wearing leggings for the first time in 20 years!  I discovered NYDJ in October, and bought 3 pairs!  One for everyday, and  another for good.  The 3rd pair is a spare.  I am 67, and would never wear them as I was afraid of showing lumps and bumps.  But these are amazing.  They have been on sale for quite a while for 58 dollars.  Regular price is 98.  They are thick, hold their shape amazingly, and fit so smooth.  I truly was surprised.  They are the "Jodie" style, or something like that.  I love the waist band.  It is wide, doesn't roll, and doesn't pinch to show a back fat roll in the back.

ANother vote for Hue to get consistently very good legging.  Because Hue is sold at so many stores you never have to pay full rice becuase someone always has something from the line on sale.  Macy's and Nordstroms both have a nice assortment from the brand in stores.  Online type Hue in a search engine and you'll many good recoomendations ranging from Macy's and Nordstrom to online retailers such as BareNecessities, HerRoom, Hue's own website, etc.
