These pants fit my oval shape....so I like to let other ovals know! They are very high-waisted (which I like), have just enough elastic at the back waist band. I did have to more the buttons about 1/2 inch to allow for more room in the waist. I am 5'5" and my legs are on the shorter side and these are still a nice crop length. I wore them to work (and I sit all day), they were comfortable and did not stretch out.
