They were kind of cheaply made but I bought them for going to Rocky Horror so I didn't care since it was only for one night. Anyone interested in these as something more than just a one time wear should really look at something more durable... I had only just opened the package and could tell the seam wasn't done properly, there was long bits of half sown string stuff coming out of the leg. I don't even think it was part of that product. I had to cut it off. After my night out the seam that runs up the back was almost splitting. I'm not terribly fat or anything, they fit perfectly so it was clearly just the product not being made properly.
