[We took 1 inch off the width of the waist band and add 1 inch to the height of the waistband for a little more coverage!] I can truthfully say that these are my favorite Leggings I have ever worn. You will notice that they breath well keeping you cool during your workout and are still perfect for running on cold days. They move with you and the four way stretch material helps eliminate low-riding and bunching. The medium-high rise waist supports and flatters the tummy, and the stripes are both aesthetically pleasing, and slimming to the eye. My personal pair has held up perfectly with repeated washing and over 60 workouts. (PLEASE do not wash these with any article of clothing that has Velcro! I learned this the hard way with one of my early samples) :) These Capris shape, support, breathe, flatter, and most importantly they don't show through. I love my Striped Capri!
