JUMPING JIL LEGGINGS
Made from a lovely soft material, which doesn't go baggy at the knees. The waistband is really comfortable - no cutting in. Would definitely buy another pair in a different colour.

I can't rave enough about these. They are fantastic! Lovely thick fabric, warm, good comfy fit especially around the waist and keep their shape when washed. Great range of colours, which makes a change from the usual black that all the other shops do. Bought the Somerset Sunset and the Zinc and they go really well with lots of other colours. Am usually between a 10 and 12 but the 10 fits perfectly. They are really long as I am only 5 feet but just wear them pulled down over my feet and they're fine - keeps my feet warm!

Great colour, great quality
I have bought the leggings in the bordeaux colour and they are a great thick material and comfy.
Leggings can be so hit and miss with the thickness but I need to get some more of these!

Great range of colours!
Love these leggings. Had a pair in black and ink before I lost them moving house! Must replenish stocks :)
I love the range of colours offered by WS leggings, but I am desperate for a chocolate brown! Pretty please!? :)

I love these leggings & have recommended them - they are so comfy and don't loose their shape :-)

I am a huge WS fan and have many tunics/dresses etc! I have always thought the leggings seemed expensive and have wasted pounds on cheaper alternatives.
I have just order 2 pairs ink & somerset sunset and they are fabulous! The colours work with all my ws and also other similar makes where black is just not right.
I'm thinking of them as an investment!

After reading all the rave reviews on these leggings, I decided to buy them despite finding them rather expensive. I love the choice of colours and the fabric seems very sturdy and is nice and soft. However, they're a little on the short side (I'm 6') and I don't like the way they ride up, leaving me with cold ankles. They also go a little baggy at the knees after wearing them for a while. They're nice enough but I've had better leggings.

Soft comfy and easy to wear
I have quite chunky legs and wasn't sure about wearing leggings as I thought I might end up with pale patches around my knees (so to speak ) but these are so stretchy with no wrinkles that I have 2 pairs and can even wear them with shorter boots and still look good.

Gorgeously soft and comfy leggings
I love these leggings and have owned several pairs. I am a huge WS fan.
My one wish though is that the leggings come in different leg lengths. I am 5ft 10" and the leggings are not really long enough. Please WS could you sell them in regular and long lengths? It is not too bad with boots though.

Perfect for dresses and tunics
I bought these after reading the recommendations in two different colours (really wish I'd bought the marine ones too!) I have no problem with the leg opening, and they go great with all of the dresses and tunics I've bought already from WS. More colours please!

I love these so much, I have four pairs in different colours and wear them all through winter with skirts or tunicsa and boots, just add socks to the end of legs! Perfect weight. I have sized up as they dont bag at all and I hate clinging waist bands, probably didnt need to though. Planning to wear a pair on Christmas day with a tunic, perfect dressing - closest thing to wearing my owl PJs. Thank you, love them.

Could have been thicker?
From what everyone was saying about the ankle openings I worried a bit about these, before opting for the lovely dark Bordeaux colour. First up, the ankle fit is FINE and I have a right pair of size 8 feet on me. No problem getting them on! I thought the 'White Stuff' printed into the waistband was a nice touch, and I love that the waist doesn't cut you in two. This a bit of a gripe with tights, but with these I really don't think you'd have that nipped-in then bulged-out effect. Where these lost a star was in thickness. I have leggings from another shop that are MUCH thicker than these, which felt almost like tights in weight to me. I was surprised as others have said these felt heavyweight. Anyway, hanging on to them as the colour is gorgeous, (will be wearing these for Yule with the embroidered Northern Lights dress) and they are a good length. I have a 31/32in leg and am a 12/14, I got the 14 so they went too tight or short and they were neither.

Comfortable and warm
I bought three pairs in different colours and they have been worth every penny. They fit well and are very comfortable to wear. The colours are gorgeous, they go well with many of my other White Stuff purchases! The fabric is a little thicker than normal leggings which is great for keeping out the cold. I couldn't be happier with them.

Even better than last year!
I bought a new pair this season and I am pleased to say they are even better than last year. Last year's were fine but these have a more comfortable fit around the waist. I have sized down for a snugger fit on legs too.

ankles too tight
I love these leggings as they are matt, opaque and lovely colours and I have two pairs in size 10. As I am short these are rolled over several inches at the ankle and also slip down during wear. I have tried several colours in size 8 which I know would fit better but can't get my feet through as there is no give in the stitching at the very narrow ankle opening - so disappointing!
Also what happened to the grey marl colour ?I took back the rather baggy size 10 and now regret it as they are no longer available.

Prefer last years fit but this years colours
I've several pairs of these leggings and last years fit is a lot better, the ankles are a tight fit on this years, had to pull them on with care. Also found them more generous in the body and less generous in the thigh but nothing too much to worry about. This seasons colours are gorgeous though, much prettier than blue and grey ;)

Best pair of leggings I ever owned!
I wish I had discovered these leggings before now, well worth paying a few pounds extra for. Great quality, thick enough so that they don't become see- through like other leggings, soft material and a unusual but versatile marine colour . Just ordered a Somerset Sunset pair. Also a great fit on my curvy figure! Thanks WS.

Baggy at the knees
Bought these in ink, which is a great colour, but they are too big, bagged at the knees and didn't feel tight enough around the waist - I could imagine always having to pull them up. So they are going back.
18 October 2012
Normally I love ws products, purchased in store size 8 zinc leggings, however I wouldn't fit my ankles through without tearing the stitching. Notticed someone else had this problem and I also went back to try another pair, no luck, and obviously no 10 in store or online so returned without a pair :(

Deep Marine is Stunning
Recently purchased the Jumping Jill leggings in deep marine. It is a stunning colour - green enough to be different, but still subtle enough to be versatile. They look really great on, definitely not skimpy or too thin. There has been some bobbling after just 2 wears (as I have had with my other White Stuff leggings) - which does make it difficult to justify the price compared to other brands. But White Stuff have won out on this colour.
08 October 2012
As one other reviewer said you simply cannot get these over the ankles, I have no idea how anyone could, the stitching has no stretch, are some of these wider than others at ankles? However, they are so long, mine sit nicely tucked over my foot half way, like half a sock! Maybe this is how they're supposed to be worn?? I bought size 10 as size 8 was unavailable and glad I did, they are tight and fitted on the leg. Front rise too high for me as usual but hey that's just me I suppose. Nice fabric. Gorgeous deep purple.
08 October 2012
Am still undecided about whether to keep these leggings. The fit is not the same as in previous years - not as long in the leg or body, which is important when you are 5'10. Size up and the ankles are baggy, my size and the leg and body are too short. Having said that these are a lovely quality, beautiful thick fabric, great colours. Now to decide if I want to compromise on fit or return them :-(

LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE LEGGINGS!!
i dont think i should be getting excited about leggings........ but hey?! .......when you have found a good pair why not! when i first put them on i could tell that they were good ones, lovely and soft, they dont go baggy, and you cant see your skin through them, amazing, i have just got another pair, bring on the cold weather!

I love these leggings
I have a few of these in different colours, the fabric is good, they don't sag and they are very comfy.

Inky, zincy somerset slinky
I have these from last year in the zinc and the ink, and bought them again this year in the somerset sunset to go with the star anise kaftan. Whilst they're a little more expensive than some others the quality is far superior and in this case you really do pay for what you're getting. They don't lose their shape, wash really well and even on me they're a very good length. They don't fall down, don't ride up, aren't too thick but don't bare all, I ended up buying a 14 this year because there were no 12s and even those are just lovely - if you wear leggings over winter with tunics etc, I can heartily recommend investing in these, stand up to time, washing and wearing and the colours are so much nicer than plain old boring black.

I only ever buy WS leggings!!
WS leggings are just the best, great colours, great material, wash and iron great and look great :-) I always size down (usually 14 in WS skirts but buy 12 in leggings). No sagging or wrinkling at the knees!!
02 October 2012
Legs 11 - sags and bags 0
These are the best leggings I've ever had - they keep their shape and never sag or bag anywhere, if I didn't catch them in my boot zip occasionally they would last me forever. WS you must be psychic as you've added more colours with this new lil range so I'll be adding to my collection.

Great staple must have!
An essential addition to any wardrobe. Unlike others I have bought in the past, WS leggings last brilliantly - keeping their shape and colour wash after wash.

Sadly not for me
I ordered with high expectations, but found these to be baggy in the leg and so have had to return.
30 September 2012
I have brought leggings from the high street and they have all been really bad quality and shrink in the wash even at the recommended temperature but i'm glad to say these leggings have lasted wash after wash.The quality as always with white stuff is excellent.The leggings are really comfortable and go with almost everything,great fit.
