Stretchy for curves
I'm a curvy girl (5'5, 160 lbs) and was afraid that a Medium in these would be too clingy. While they are close-fitting, they are so in a good way---they accentuate my curves but not to the extent where they show every bulge. They're quite sexy and super-comfortable. I bought a pair in tan and later, also in black, and wear them camping, just piddling around, and with a nice shirt they pair well to go out to dinner/movie. Love the drawstring waist, too!
