1562 Supplex Ankle Legging
Best leggings ever!
I've been wearing Danskin tights, leotards, and leggings forever. They are the best and most reasonably priced dance and exercise clothes ever! I have pairs of leggings that are at least 10 years old -- and they still look like new. I wear them for Pilates, Yoga, and as leggings for work. I've tried all the fancy brands, but I keep coming back to Danskin. I just wish there were more colors available.

Awesome, but... don't reach my ankles!
These are great, simple, comfy and have worn really well. I have 2 pairs of these and 2 pairs of the capri's. I rotate them, and they all still look in really good condition after 2 years of wear on a pretty regular basis.
I have used them for yoga, pilates, weights, hiking, travel, running. Super versatile. They dry super quick, a total boon when travelling.
As a bonus these don't have logos on them, so you can throw on a top, a trench and nice shoes and meet friends for a bite or coffee after a class and still look like a normal human being.
The only downside is that these run a little small, I am 5'9" and am normally a medium, these are a little firm, and don't make it all the way to my ankles.

Fit was perfect and material is comfortable.
I purchased a small and the leggings fit perfectly. The material is very comfortable and not see through like other leggings can be. They are good for cooler weather as they are warm to wear. The elasticity has not waned after several wears for biking and yoga. Also easy to wash.

After searching the internet for a pair of long-lasting and opaque leggings, I settled on these. I ordered a size up from what I usually wear, and found myself swimming in them - the length was fine, but somehow the waist and hip area was strange. I really liked the fabric though, so I sent them back in exchange for a medium (my usual size). The length was fine, and a touch above the ankle as expected. The waist and crotch on the other hand were terrible. The waist sits above my bellybutton and is too tight. The crotch sags, even when the waist is pulled up, and wearing them does require a lot of pulling. For reference, I'm just under 5'9" and weigh 140 pounds. I ended up keeping them because I just wanted an opaque pair, but after having worn them a handful of times, I'm already noticing pilling on the thighs.
I will not be buying danskin tights again.

I am over 6 feet tall. It is almost impossible to find leggings that fit well and are any where near this very high quality of material and construction!

these leggings are great.
i just bought four pairs of these leggings...because i realized i had been wearing five pairs of the same leggings since 2005!! when i was putting on a pair of the old ones, i stopped and thought...hmmm...how long have i been wearing these? and i realized i had been wearing the same ones since at least 2005!! good quality, and obviously they last for a very long time!!
so i just bought four more pairs of them and two of the capris; and then when they arrived, i liked the capris so much, i bought two MORE of the capris!! in the winter, i wear the leggings with boots, a long tee-shirt and a shorter, heavier v-neck sweater/shirt. it's been my outfit for years. and in the summer, i wear the same tops (w/a lighter over-shirt) with the leggings (and now the capris), with flats!!

After searching websites for good quality leggings at a good price, I came back to Danskin and was not disappointed. I've been dancing all my life and have always relied on Danskin's quality and wearability. These leggings are not too thick and not too thin - they are just right. They are super soft and maintain their shap throughout the day.
