These leggings are truly amazing. I am very picky when it comes to leggings and these are perfect. They are true to size and the first leggings I have found that fit my waist without gaping but are still comfortable in the legs. I love the silky feel of them and I never have to pull them up!
I saved up for my first pair of Balance leggings after hearing awesome reviews from brand ambassadors and let me tell you they are WORTH IT. The tapered waistband is a total game changer. I never have to adjust them. They move with you so when you're doing squats they don't squeeze your hips or slip which was a great surprise. The only reason these aren't 5 stars is that the fabric is much more cotton-like than I was expecting and they're quite warm when you're working out for a while. They're soft/smooth (but not buttery soft) and that butt contour is crazy flattering; it boosts my confidence so much when I wear these! For reference, I bought a SM and my measurements are 27" waist, 40" hips and these fit ~perfectly~.
I am a fan of the new material, it is softer and sleeker and almost feels brushed on the inside, which is very nice. It doesn’t attract hair/lint like the OG fabric either, which is also very nice. They are definitely tighter in the same size than previous ascend versions though. Original ascends I got a SM felt like I could do an XS too, these I got a SM, felt like I could do a MD too (I am never a MD). Once they are on, they feel good, but you might want to size up. I do find the waistband rolls down a bit at the top with any movement, and at least for me personally (straight body type), I would prefer a little less taper at the waist. Another thing is they not very underwear friendly and basically show everything underneath. Overall, I really like these pants though, if they were cheaper I would get more. They are just very different than previous ascends, I might rename them or identify them as ascend 2.0 or something.
I have purchased a pair of leggings from every collection since the Kingdom collection. These are by far my favorite. They have the best fit, they are soft, comfortable. They stay in place. I actually ordered these after purchasing the purple color from this collection because I love them so much. I would definitely recommend!
Sized up in these, because originally the small was slightly see-through, but I'm in between sizes anyway. I love the medium! Not see through at all!
