LOVED these bottoms. I have put on that covid weight and was nervous about the cut. My fears were put to bed the moment I put it on! Talk to the girls and find your fit. I got a large, and I've got a booty i've worked hard to grow. The waist line comes up high enough to flatter my stomach just the way I like. It hugs my body in the perfect way and if i'm feeling a little sexy *Smirk* I can pull the sides up on the hips for that instashot that I want and will for sure be sharing when I hit the hot springs this winter!!
