Sadly this pair of leggings failed the stretch test. Unlike a previous pair I own, they are sewn across the ribbing stretch, so as soon as you put them on the pattern thins and becomes grey. My black and white patterned pair are sewn the opposite way, so feel more supportive and the pattern looks good. They feel thinner and of poor quality overall than the previous pair. I do't recommend these if you have any curves at all.
