I really wanted to love these, but they hit me in an awkward spot at my waist and don't have enough butt room. I'm 5'2" and curvy. I sized up and ordered a 30, I'm usually a 28-29. They fit nicely though the leg, with a lovely stretch to shape and slimmed my thigh. They regular are a little long for me, but I'm shorter so I'm used to getting pants hemmed or ordering petite (not in stock). My main problem is these pants don't have room for a butt! They pull awkwardly in my "front", squish my butt to a pancake, and gape in my waist. If I sized down the pulling in the front would be worse. If I sized up the legs would be too big. The proportions are just off for my body type. I'm sad because the material is so nice!
