"This is a wonderful pant. The fabric is soft and the color is good. These pants run a bit large and they are also meant to be worn low which makes for an even bigger waist. Since women's sizes vary so much I never really know what size I am. I ordered a 6 and they are a bit big for me but that's what I wanted. Fortunately they are not too long. I often have a problem with length in FP bottoms but these are just right.
If you want these pants to fit a bit snugger, I would suggest sizing down but not too much. If you have a range of sizes that fit you go with the lower size. For example, I could fit a 4 in these but probably not a 2."
