REDESS Fleece Lined leggings for Women, 3 Pairs Winter Warm Velvet Leggings, High Waist -Elastic and Slimming Tights

Score: Well Done!

Look, it’s leggings all the ladies love, plus a Karl Ove Knausgaard novel. First, the novel:


Product Description
The second volume in his autobiographical quartet based on the seasons, Winter is an achingly beautiful collection of daily meditations and letters addressed directly to Knaugsaard's unborn daughter

2 December - It is strange that you exist, but that you don't know anything about what the world looks like. It's strange that there is a first time to see the sky, a first time to see the sun, a first time to feel the air against one's skin. It's strange that there is a first time to see a face, a tree, a lamp, pajamas, a shoe. In my life it almost never happens anymore. But soon it will. In just a few months, I will see you for the first time.

In Winter, we rejoin the great Karl Ove Knausgaard as he waits for the birth of his daughter. In preparation for her arrival, he takes stock of the world, seeing it as if for the first time. In his inimitably sensitive style, he writes about the moon, water, messiness, owls, birthdays--to name just a handful of his subjects. These oh-so-familiar objects and ideas he fills with new meaning, taking nothing for granted or as given. New life is on the horizon, but the earth is also in hibernation, waiting for the warmer weather to return, and so a contradictory melancholy inflects his gaze.

Startling, compassionate, and exquisitely beautiful, Knausgaard's writing is like nothing else. Somehow, he shows the world as it really is, at once mundane and sublime.

      Finally! Warm leggings I can pull over my heels <3, December 22, 2017

      Absolute favorite leggings. These must have been designed by or for dancers. After the fleece/velvet-lined legging ends around the ankle, there’s several inches of stretchy fabric to pull over your heel to the middle of your foot. Covering my heels and ankles with leggings is something I’ve done for years after leaving competitive gymnastics and dance, but it’s a holdover habit I can’t break because I SWEAR it keeps my ankles warmer!
      You could just as easily not pull the extra fabric down over your foot (but do try it if you haven’t!), but former dancers and gymnasts used to buying longer leggings or wearing them low-slung to replicate that warmth we used to require during warm-ups…these are your leggings!
      A great bonus? They don’t collect pet hair when you play with your furry friends, or fuzz in the wash (the outside is almost slick, like athleisure wear, in texture). They look great, they feel great, and the grey and black have held up to a lot of use in the month I’ve had them.

      These leggings are okay. They’re not really leggings, I would say they’re closer to tights, thick, fleece lined, tights. They don’t have a seam that runs in the center from front to back like normal leggings do, they have the same seams as tights. You should probably wear them with something long enough to cover the front and back, otherwise you look like you’re wearing undergarments out. Great for under jeans or under a dress or tunic.

      The leggings are extremely long at the top and come up SUPER high and they don’t have a “control top” on them so the very tight waist band pushes in at the top of your midsection, thus making your midsection poke out. They are very warm and soft inside but that’s about it. Unfortunately, I washed these before using them so I’m stuck with them.

      For those wondering, I am a sz 28, 132lbs, and these fit pretty tight. Definitely not the best “one size fits all” I’ve purchased but not the worst either. Just be prepared to do the “pants wiggle” when getting into them. Hope this helps for someone looking to buy these!
