I love these pants. They are lightweight and baggy, perfect for warm wheather but could also be used for cooler climates as you can easily fit leggings under them. The waist band is comfortable, and fit the waist in a flattering way which keeps the bagginess from making you look fatter than you are. I am 5 feet and weigh 117---so I bought a medium. The wasist if fine but they are a little long. Since I use them in gym, I like the long length. I bought these in white---and they are NOT see through, as they have 2 layers of fabic. I can do the splits in them and you cannot see through them.I would like to buy them in another color, but they were all out of black in medium. I might try a small in black. These are kind of classic, the baggy but fitted waist is an old school gym rat style that the bodybuiders used to wear in the 80s.
