Unfortunately sizing down didn't work for me. I fit in, but the seams of the mesh parts cut in my thighs. I went one size down. Maybe I will try one size up. Quality is great as usual.
I have two of these and I love them! They are really comfy, with super high waist, the material is great. According to the size guide I should have 10-12, I ordered one in 10 - they are a little loose for me, and I have the second in 8 and they fit perfectly!
As the first pair is a bit loose, I need to put them up quite often, so the seems in the mesh kind of broke, but you can't see it and there are no holes, so I can still wear them.
These leggings are so comfortable. I ordered a size larger than I needed on accident but they still fit really well and stay up well considering they are a bit big. My only complaints would be the seam in the mesh and the front seam. You do run the risk of a camel toe look with that front seam in the crotch.
I wasn’t going to even try this at first because I don’t normally like mesh, but Cassey kept raving about it so I decided to take a shot. The design is cute, but the mesh was itchy! It definitely runs big, so size down. They weren’t kidding when they called this the HIGHness legging. It is *super* high waisted. More high waisted than Lululemon high-rise Wunder Unders. Not much compression. I felt like there was never-ending material when I was pulling these leggings over my waist, almost like a jumpsuit. I tried to sit in them for half an hour to see how I felt about it, but the mesh just kept making me itchier. While the length was perfect at first, the longer I sat, the more the bottom of the mesh kept sliding up my leg. Before I knew it, my ankles were cold with nothing covering them. I guess I was expecting a lot since I kept hearing good things about it. I’ll just stick to no-mesh leggings from now on. I feel like my overall thoughts/complaints about Popflex is that you guys put a lot of work into coming up with pretty designs, but oftentimes that comes at a cost and sacrifices function, which is way more important. If a piece doesn’t function, what good is the look (especially for an athletic wear company)?
I wear size 2 and those leggings doesn’t give me enough compression. They don’t slip but they fit more like a leisure lounge pants than performance leggings.
