These pants are everything I could have asked for. I typically wear 16/18, 1X on top, apple/boxy shape. My major problem with pants were that if I get it to fit me at the waist, the legs were floppy and huge on me. If it fits nicely at the legs, then the waist was too small. So I resorted to wearing skirts and dresses only for several years. I must've tried on every single ponte knit pants I ever came across. Had I found a pair that fits like this, I would have gladly paid triple/quadruple the price. These pants are perfect in every way! I wear them to my retail job and in school. The best thing about these pants are that the leg fits slimming. It is also very stretchy (imagine a pair of very thick leggings). I can bend/crawl/run in them. They don't migrate down my butt even after an 8 hour retail shift. It doesn't dig into my stomach when i sit down. They keep their shape it doesn't bulge out at the knees or anything. Its got faux front pockets which will be a negative for some. For me its great because there's no extra bulge in my stomach area. The back pockets are enough for my keys and pens or whatever i might need to keep with me during my job and school. I've been wearing them 2-3 times a week for about 2 weeks now. There's minimal pilling between the thighs. I've washed them once and just air dried them and it didn't shrink. I first ordered a sz 18 regular, and I loved it so much that i ordered a second pair in petites, so my review is limited to that size. I think if you're typically used to size 18 pants, you will find that these run a little smaller or slim (hence I deducted a point), but not small enough that you're precluded from ordering these pants. The pants are stretchy but resilient so it does stay on you. I also wanted to note that i noticed just a very slight difference in the rise between regular and petites. The inseam on the petites i think was listed as 30.5" but when i checked, it was 31" (so i had to hem it anyway). Love Love Love! I wish FG keeps making them in the future. If I weren't trying to lose weight I would stock up at this price!
