Definitely fits its name; very soft. Based on some of the other reviews, I chose to get a medium. Prepregnancy, I was 5'7" and 130 lbs. At 21 weeks, I'm 139. The pants are a little baggy around the waist now, but I when I wore them running, I didn't feel like they were going to fall off or that they needed to be adjusted or pulled back up. I'm also confident that they'll grow with me. I can tell from the way that the mediums fit that the smalls would likely have been too small now, let alone a month or two from now.
