I bought these in black, size L. I'm 5'7", 168 lbs. I typically wear a size 10/12. These fit perfectly, and hallelujah, not high waste but they can be pulled up! They are very flattering - holding in my stomach and hips where needed. The pockets are very handy and deep. I've been on a hunt for a unique pair of black leggings and these are my new favorites. Excited to get the white!
