TWILL TAILORED ANKLE ZIP LEGGING
These are by far my favorite pants they make. Dress them up or down. The are true "ankle/skinny" fit as they don't flare out at all, but the zipper allows you to if that's the look you are going for. Super comfy. I wear them twice a week. I wish they would make more colors!!!

Different & interesting features...
I usually wear size 4R dress pants and 6R jean leggings at Express. I ordered the 4 in this legging. Fits true to size and as expected for me, though on my curves it is a slim fit (doesn't bunch up at the knees and crotch like in the stock photos) and are an inch or two longer than I would prefer (5'6"/135lb/average build). Side zip with hook and eye closure. The fabric feels synthetic and has a stiff stretch, very substantial and thicker than Express stretch leggings. Interesting cross-hatch (twill) texture to the cloth. The description says that "decorative curving seams on the legs add an ever-so-subtle slimming effect", but I can't say the seams are subtle at all (they're actually rather thick due to the thickness of the cloth) nor did they do anything to slim my legs. I like the ankle-zip option, especially how they are completely hidden if I choose to close them up. Overall, I can't say I was blown away, but I do like the features that make this different from my other black leggings/slim fit pants and how they give me more styling options. Glad I got them on sale.
