Happy I bought the x- small.
Fit is amazing, length, elastic, fabric, design... everything is great. Compliments every time I wear them. Seamlessly transition from a day at work to my yoga mat.
I love these year round, but I find them especially fab in the stinking hot summers... they are breathable and loose, but my legs are still covered (which I like). Wish the leg opening was a bit tighter- I have average to slightly larger calves and these always slide down if I wear them up.
I wore my black encircled dressy sweatpants to the airport and they were the only pants I brought with me on our 2 month long trip to different regions of Spain. They were warm on cooler March days and versatile enough to wear on all sorts of outings and excursions. The material is soft and form fitting yet does not lose its shape after some wear before the next wash. I love the versatility of these pants. While walking along the promenades, when the temps would rise you can hike the legs up to have a different look that looks great and they stay up. The pockets are a great feature and the ruched leg bottoms keep the pants looking fashionable and not just sporty. I own two pairs, navy and the black and they are great colours to pair with everything. Well done encircled!
