I was excited about the wide waistband and what looked like a flattering cut.They were a bit too roomy, but apart from that, I'm not sure ANY size would fit properly. They're long-waisted with (oddly) very little space in the crotch. This, coupled with the bizarre fabric that feels like thin spandex with NO stretch, means that you can't take a medium-sized step without feeling like the seams are pulling and ready to rip. The strange fabric also causes odd puckering at the seams.Overall, a disappointment. I am returning them and not ordering a different size.
