When I first got them in my hands, I thought the fabric felt different from the marbled mix version.

The florence version is smooth, no texture at all and reminds me very much of Werkshop leggings but without the compression. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in bottoms. Speed Wunder Tight Nulux Florence Size 4 Here I'm wearing my normal size 4. They feel like second skin, very comfortable at the waist. It hits just below my belly button and no muffin top. The waist band is very wide at about 3 inches. As you can see the length is very very long on me. The lace print is intricate and detailed. Lululemon released a video describing the work that went into this print. All the leaves and honeycomb were hand drawn and then graphically placed so every pair looks exactly the same no matter what size.
