The fabric looks like swimsuit material, so I imagine it will not fade quickly. The waistband is 1/2" elastic, so it's not particularly smoothing, but it looks okay. The waistline goes up to or above my navel, so it is kind of high. The bottom hem is serged and probably about 31-32" long, so they would be possible to hem without it looking bad.
Overall, they are adequate, but not extraordinary. I'll probably save them for performances, since they shouldn't fade and don't collect lint. Good value.
