We have some of the Supersoft, extra-long Babylegs & I love those, but they are a bit thicker, so not sure how they would fit trimly under pants (so far she has only worn them w/skirts).

I ordered the Huggalugs in solid pink & in the pink/fuschia flower (Anna)....they are CUTE!! They are a bit softer & stretchier than Babylegs & they are longer too. I asked the owner & they said they were about 37 cm. In comparison, Babylegs just came out w/their extra long version which is 40 cm, so the reg Huggalugs are almost as long as the XL Babylegs. They feel about the same weight/thickness to me. The elastic hem is a bit stretchier too.

When I put the Huggalugs on DD's legs, I could stretch them out all the way up to the top of her thigh. No tightness. With Babylegs, they usually come up just above her knees now (she is 18 mo & about 30 lbs - yay, not a typo she's a brick, LOL!)

The flowered print ones do have a lot of messy looking threads on the reverse side (inside). It doesn't show, but it does *look* messy. I've had some Babylegs in the more bold patterns (I think COW print) that had loose, fibery threads like that on the reverse side, but I think the Huggalugs have more. Probably just because the flower pattern has so many colors & requires so much threading.

I haven't washed them yet, so can't say how they'll hold up, but my initial impression is that they seem nice.

I ordered on either Thurs or Friday (Dec 7 or 8) & it took 10 full days to get to me from Australia (I'm in the Seattle WA area). I paid thru PayPal & they did the conversion for me. With the discount & free shipping, it came out to about $10.55 a pair or something like that.

HTH some of you on the fence.
I just wanted to come back & post an update......(I'm quoting myself here since I posted the above several posts back).

Anyway, DD has worn both the solid pink & the flowered pair & they seemed quite comfy on her. The flowered pair seemed to show a few "picks" in the pattern after her first wearing though They are minor, but I could see them because I was looking & trying to see how they held up. I think all the threading from the multiple colors just leads to more loose threads on the back side & the rubbing against the skin just causes breakage So there are some little loose threads, again, nothing major, I'm being picky looking for them, but I do see them.

I also machine washed & dried the pink pair & it shrunk! Quite a bit actually. Orig they started out way longer than BLs (which I liked, since DD is tall & has long legs), but after washing, they are now exactly the same size.

My pair arrived yesterday and so far I love them! The elastic is much more comfortable (loose) than babylegs. As for the shrinking, the care instructions says:
  • Cold Machine Wash
  • Do Not Tumble Dry
  • Do Not Iron
  • Do Not Dry Clean
  • Allow for 5% shrinkage due to high cotton content.

I haven't washed mine yet, but I'll make sure to hang dry them.

My huggalugs arrived the other day and I love them! They are so much better than babylegs, IMO. Much softer and stretchier for chubby and thin thighs alike.

Wow! I can't believe the difference in length. They will last forever as far as sizing goes. Thats great, now when the co-op comes, I will have to order more to include dd

BTW, is the co-op gonna happen or what are we waiting on?

Just be careful not to machine dry them if you want them to stay that much longer. I washed & machine dried my Huggalugs, and although I still like them because they are stretchier than our BLs, they did shrink a good 2-3"; so now they are exactly the same length as our reg BLs. Just a heads up.

Does it say to machine dry, cause I know you aren't supposed to dry BL's???
