These are slimming, but not tight like leggings. They will be perfect for travel. The only thing missing is pockets.
I was the proud owner of two pairs of Blue Canoe full-length skinny pants, and wore them so much they finally wore out. I tried to replace them, and found they had been discontinued. I decided to give these a try, but I don't like the ponte fabric. It doesn't breathe well, and it is way too stretchy. Straight out of the bag, th crotch is so stretchy that it's sagging. Not flattering! I ordered my usual Blue Canoe size--S--but they still feel too loose. I thought maybe I"d try an XS, but that size doesn't exist. I REALLY miss the full-length ankle skinny pants--the fabric was perfect, they were long enough to wear year-round, and they were versatile enought for any occasion, any season. They were not as tight as leggings, which is more flattering for my preference, but they were also not loose and saggy like these ponte pants. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE--bring back the full-length skinny pants in cotton--not ponte!
A great Blue Canoe basic that I expect to last a long time especially if washed on cold/gentle and line dried
