Generous fitting, elasticated waist, I bought the top size as I'm not really the correct size for the Roman Shop more of a plus size. I bought them for work originally, but being this hot weather this last summer couldn't wear them because it was too hot for the material, However they haven't gone to waste. I have used them for job interviews, wearing for going away on a plane and in general use. They are smart and look really trendy on, they fit my legs and hips perfectly and show a small outline of my thighs, but nothing heavy going, like Leggings as an example. I am really surprised the fabric isn't annoying as its synthetic. They are smooth to touch and slightly elasticated. Warm in the winter, too hot for the summer. Smart and casual. Mine are getting worn alot, I think I will have to get another pair soon.
