"To contrast another reviewer, I too have large hips (size 8/10), but I think the pants are still quite flattering. I can understand how they might not be, but on me at least, my hips and butt look good. Also, the high waist accentuates my waist in relation to hips/butt. Also an inch or so too long and I'm 5' 7''. These are easily the coolest pants I own. I only sized down one size, but all the sizes seemed to fit me more or less. I would recommend trying them on in the store if you can. They are also really light and perfect for spring and summer. All in all, an awesome buy."
