I love jeggings. Love them! They’re a fall/winter staple for me. I wear them with tunics and boots, sweaters and boots, casual dresses and boots… you get the idea. So of course I was intrigued when I noticed my local Aldi selling jeggings under its Serra line for $9.99. After seeing them for a couple of weeks, I finally caved and bought a pair.
The material is thick and soft, and the color is good. They’re very comfortable to wear and don’t have the “show through” thin quality that really cheap leggings can have. They look convincingly like denim. The color is a dark wash but definitely more blue than black. It’s a nice, neutral color that you can dress up or dress down.
I’m normally a 4 in jeans, so I bought the S (4-6) size. The fit is a little big on me, so I’d say it’s closer to a 6 than a 4. They look fine with my clothes, though, and I’m wearing them today with a fitted tunic-style shirt. There’s no bunching or obvious gaps or baggy knees, etc. But they feel looser than I would like in the waist and crotch, and I worry they could get looser with time and wear. (The downside of stretchy material is its tendency to stretch out.)
I like the way these leggings feel, and I’ll appreciate the extra give after the past week’s Thanksgiving feast. But I don’t think I’ll buy them again since the fit runs bigger than I hoped. If you’re in the market, I’d say that it’s safe to assume that the larger size in the size range on the package is the accurate one.
