Looking for something a little looser for everyday wear? Try Danskin Women's Sleek-Fit Yoga Pant. Your basic black— everyone's favorite — is on sale for just $24 (nearly half off!). These boot-cut beauties are an Amazon Choice, so you know they've got the quality — and, right now, the price — you're looking for.

Hundreds of happy reviewers love these pants for their fit! One longtime Danskin fan raved: "They hug you in all the right places and are very complimentary, but loose in all the right places (knee and below), make your butt look great too."

She is also grateful for their longevity: "These particular Danskin pants DO NOT SHRINK in high setting in dryer (or in hot water in washer!).... And my [10-year-]old pair didn't get thinner, get fuzz balls on them or deteriorate with all the washes, workouts, etc. over all these years."

Another five-star reviewer says: "I LOVE these, so I ordered two. I ordered XL. I'm 5'8½" and fluctuate from 180 to 200 pounds. They are comfortable and not too snug. The length is great, too. I feel very comfortable to work out in these or wear as lounge pants or run errands in them. Brilliant find! So go buy them!"

Another Danskin devotee says: "I love these pants! The fit is sleek but not as form-fitting as leggings.... I feel Okay wearing them for daily wear versus just as workout wear. I also like the wide waistband because I am not constantly having to pull my pants back into place every time I stretch."
