Decent black leggings for 5'3"

Please can you suggest some black leggings that meet these criteria?

Not see through
Aren't going to fade after a few washes
Fit me at 5'3".

I realise that just because people are the same height they don't necessarily have the same leg length. I've measured a pair I have that fail the second requirement from the seam at the crotch down to the bottom of the inside leg and it seems about 60cm is ideal.

Thank you!

TLC sport do some leggings which are 29" leg and fit me perfectly at 5'2" (size 6). I've had mine for a couple of years and they are still going strong. Not see-through and very comfy.

Gap. I think they do different thicknesses.

Following as I have just discovered I've worn a hole in the crotch of my black leggings last night. A sure sign I need to get out of the house and into real clothes post lockdown 🤦‍♀️

For sports leggings go for sweaty Betty. They do a 7/8 length and are worth the money. If you sign up online you get 10% off

I'm wearing Morrison's Nutmeg leggings today, I'm 5'5" & normally need 29" inside leg, these are perfect, I buy leggings from M & S or Sainsburys TU as well, I have found Next ones rubbish as they aren't long enough in the body.

Monsoon used to do fantastic leggings. I don’t know whether they still do because mine have lasted for years- I have 4 pairs. They only did navy and black though.

I'm 5"5 but short in the leg department. I have recently discovered loveleggings they are online only I think. I'm in the maternity leggings at the moment but will definitely be buying the regular leggings the length is great they are thick and good quality.

Thank you for all the suggestions! I will have a look and see what prices are like and probably order a few to try.

Except for love leggings! I agree they are nice and thick and the perfect length, but these are the ones I mentioned that fit most of the criteria but were fading. They'd be fine for the duration of pregnancy though.

ASOS petite are my favourite

@BessMarvin I went to Costco today and ended up buying a pair from there. I'm 5'3 and they are the perfect length for me. I can't imagine how they would be long enough for anyone over 5'5.

I really like them and they were only £15

Thank you all, hopefully should be able to find something suitable from all those.
