Very happy with these pants. They lost a star because the white is cream, not white. They legs are long, so I'll have to hem. The waist is nice and stretchy, so they are comfy. The hand of the fabric is more like cotton. I have an oval shape (bigger belly, smaller hips--pretty much straight up and down) and these are a good pant for me. I wear between 16-18 in Reitmans pants and the 16 in these was good. Washed in machine and dryer and they did shrink-so were a little bit tight, but they stretch back out in about 2 seconds. And they wrinkle, but you can't expect any different from linen.
