Like a sweater for your bum...

If you've never felt Ibex's Izzi fabric before, it's a unique animal. The Izzi pants are the exact same stuff - it's kind of a thick, almost terrycloth type experience, cozy without being cuddly. It's not something you'd pick up and start thinking about puppies, but it's still warm and very comfortable. Very stretchy, too. I'm 5'8", 173 lbs, a curvy size 12, and got a large. Fits fine. One star down for how it came out of the wash, though. I washed it in cold water, no dryer, and it came out with weird creases and wrinkles, with fuzzies from other clothes stuck in every wrinkle. So I guess it's getting washed on its own from now on...good thing it's wool and won't need washing every time.
