Super soft stretch knit material has horizontal bands of elastic that catch the fabric and give it drape, all over the entire pant. Bottom hem looks like theater curtain valance. Very forgiving on size, I had to take the smallest, mainly for the length of waist to inseam since I’m 5’3″. Wide elastic waist folds down to wherever you like it. Very forgiving with so much stretch, but too stretched will loose the ruching detail, try to stay somewhere in the middle: Medium fits 26-40″ waist and up to 52″ hips. Large fits 30-46″ waist, and hips up to 54″. The XL fits 32-50″ waist and up to 56″ hips.
