At 5'3" and a size 18 and a belly I am wary of cropped, wide leg styles- lest I look like Frodo Baggins. So imagine my surprise when these were both flattering and comfortable. These can be dressed up or down yet they feel like your favourite pair of pyjama pants. Also, the colours coordinate well with lots of different coloured tops, which made this purchase more versatile than I had anticipated. Would purchase again!
