To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The slimming panel sure does slim, but it's so constraining, especially when sitting. It also kind of smooshes your butt. I want my tummy slimmed, not my butt. Ultimately, I ended up returning them because I sit for work and they were far too uncomfortable while sitting to keep.
1 pair is relaxed fit, straight leg, high rise. The other pair is relaxed fit, straight leg, mid rise. The colors are slightly different and the back pocket detail is different. I prefer the high rise, but not worth the hassle to return the other pair to Amazon, and then HOPE to get the right thing. I would not order on-line if I could find locally. Amazon strikes again.
The pants fit true to size, however, in an odd way. Weird bunching in the crotch/upper thigh area, then it hugged the calf and appeared to bell out at the ankle. Could just be this is a poor style for my body, ended up returning.
