I thought these were a good fit. However, I wore another pair of leggings under them to keep warm and had to wear suspenders to keep them in place. I think that was due to the extra pair of leggings I wore underneath. Also I have larger legs and cut off the ties on the side because I did not have enough fabric to tie them. Just for your fitting knowledge: I am 5'3", 235lbs, with wide hips, big butt and thunder thighs.
