Soft, lightweight and comfortable! Great product that compares well to workout dance pants at twice the price. I'm 5'9 and 34" waist, so the medium fit great - drawstring adjusts well. Good unisex choice. Suggest adding some colors other than black and white. I think Cami would be a big hit, too.

In class, I usually practice in a leotard and tights, but I don't always feel like getting all that on for doing some quick practice at home, so I bought these pants just to have something light and easy to wear.The fit is not fantastic for me -- it's very straight, while I'm very curvy. So it'll fit all right in some spots (calves, knees, most of my thighs), and then when it comes to my hips and butt, it's very tight. Seems all right when up and moving around, but when sitting, it's a bit constricting. Probably a good fit for straighter figures, but if you've got some hip on you, I don't recommend these.I bought these on sale, and I wouldn't pay full price for them. Before even wearing them, just pulling them out of the package, I already noticed threads escaping in multiple places. There are a few areas (especially on the crotch) where it appears the threads haven't broken and escaped since manufacture so much as broken threads and loops of thread were just sewn over during manufacture. I'm afraid to ever wash these -- I think they'll disintegrate.The fabric is EXTREMELY light. Very good for keeping cool while dancing, but contributing to the overall flimsiness of the piece.If you've got [$] to burn and aren't particular about how you spend it, these are good enough. If you're looking for a serious piece of dancewear that is durable and will last for more than a few weeks or a few washings, don't get these.

Huge bell-like legs

Comments about Urban Groove Hip-Hop Cargo Pants:
Everything about these pants are great, except for the HUGE legs from the knee down. The were cut outward at too much of an angle, to when cinched, they billowed out like two huge balloons. They were also too long, creating more billowy, bunching fabric around my calf/shin and surrounding areas. I tried pushing them up to capri length, but they just look ridiculous on me. Sadly I'm returning. I'm only 5'3-1/2 (misses size 6-8) so I bet these would look better on a taller person with long legs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Casual
After reading the reviews about the sizing I ordered down a size. I'm 5 ft and 113lbs. I'm normally an extra small. The size down fit perfectly. I bought these pants because I was having foot surgery and needed pants that would fit over my cast. Worked out perfectly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I will buy this again
from New York
I bought the XL because I have really large thighs. I'm 5'4 so the length is too long and the waist too big, but the drawstrings in the waist and legs fix that problem. The thighs fit great, I can do squats with no problem. The material is light so they are great for working out in.

I bought a large amount of these for my Winter Guard group that was a doing a hip hop routine. Unfortunatley, the sizing chart is at least one size off, on some it was two sizes. We can't return them because our performance is Tuesday and we just received them on Friday. It is frustrating when I thought one pair might be too small on one of the girls and it turns out it was two sizes too big. You definitely need to check the sizing chart on these.
Love love love!

Nice pants but did not run true to size
By no nickname
from Broadview Hts, Ohio
This will be used as a costume for one of our competition dances. The size chart did not correctly indicate the sizes we should order. Also, we had to order size up for the tall,thin girls because the inseam didn't seem long enough and when they tried the pants on, they were huge. We were able to have the girls switch around the pants until we got it down to 6 that had to be sent back for a different size. Your return policy and no charge for shipping is excellent. Customer service great too.
So Comfortable and Fit Perfectly
By Donna G.
from Santa Monica, CA
These pants are so comfortable!! I got the medium -- I'm 5'9'' with a 26'' waist. Couldn't be happier with the fit. The length is perfect too. I could buy a pair in every color and live in them!
Everyone Loved Them!

This is a nice product for the price, i like these, here's what you can expect, fabric is soft, breathable, quite thin, color is great, pockets are flush with the leg, not chunky like casual cargo pants, drawstrings on waist and ankles are like thick round athletic shoelaces, legs are very baggy, button and zipper are there but I suspect mostly for looks, I am 5'0, 97lbs, 32C, 24waist,34 hip, ordered adult small according to chart and fit is good. For the price these are a good value.
To measure girth, place tape measure on center of right shoulder, run through crotch and back to right shoulder loosely (as shown in diagram).
Remember, the girth is the most important measurement.
When in doubt, let the girth measurement determine size.
