Please don't tear, so far so good!
They feel weightless and breathable and the elastic band up top is high-quality so they fit exactly as they should without digging into the body too much and restricting circulation. I'm very sensitive to waistbands and can wear these for hours without any issues (swollen ankles, etc.). The only bad thing that could happen is if my thunder-thighs get the better of them and they get destroyed soon. Fingers crossed it doesn't happen because they are lovely.
