I am 5'4 and 160lbs. Typically, I wear a 10/12 because I am very pear shaped, with thick thighs. I don't typically wear pants for this reason, but I figured harem pants might be a stylish and roomy alternative to skirts, and I was RIGHT!!!! I ordered the olive green, and fell in love with them. They're a thin, woven linen with a lot of dimension to the color when you look closely. The textile feels exotic, and the shape of the garment makes them extremely versatile. I liked how high the waist goes. Anyone short and smaller-chested can pull this off as a jumpsuit. I've already worn them three times! I think they look best when folded over low around my hips, but I wore them high with a cropped top and received rave reviews. I also wore them to work! These pants are extremely versatile. I'm going to order them in grey as well.
