Good product with decent materials used, however extremely tight waistband no matter how worn. I did not want to size up because they would have been huge on me, however worn around my waist, up high, down low, all is too tight. I'll wear after I have my baby. Way too much lycra in fabric, although sturdy fabric. I know this is a popular product and they were very flattering when I wore them but by the end of the day my stomach ached to have them off my body. I'm due now, so my large belly may have something to do with it, but they are maternity pants, right?
