I really like these pants. The paperbag waist is stylish and flattering to a bit of a tummy (and not too exaggerated to wear with a top over the waist if you'd prefer--it doesn't really add bulk) and the pants are true to size or a bit generous--I'm between a 2 and a 4, bought the 4 because it was all that was available, but would have had a more accurate fit with the 2. As it is, these are slightly slouchy pants but that's fine with me. I'm giving 4 stars out of 5 for the fact that the pants have one slight fit issue--the calves are a bit tight and the waist is generous, so a lot of people might find that to fit one area, the other is off. Also, the fabric is nice quality but could be a bit thinner for a summer pant--there's a lot of stretch and the pants don't need quite as much.
