Firstly, I was very pleased to receive my order 10 days earlier than projected. Well done to all involved. :-) Both pairs of pants are true to color True Blue Lake Blue and Orange pink SD Burgundy. Considering the relatively low price, they are of exceptional quality. Using the size chart and making sure you take all measurements will ensure the correct fit. I am normally a size 10 or 12 depending on brand, which equates to sm/med AU. Since I have succumbed to Middle Age Spread I am wearing a Large. The Anti-Muffin Top High Waist feature (which performs as described) makes for a very firm but comfortable fit. With the addition of side pockets plus a hidden waist band pocket, they definitely tick all of the boxes.
