I LOVE this jazz pant! It's super comfortable and fits great...what more could I ask for? It's just an inch longer than need be but I can easily hem it. I love the V-shape on the top. Hits mid waist as shown in picture. I am 5'8 and 140lbs. My waist is 30", hips are 40" and the L fits perfectly. It is very stretchy and very soft. I will be ordering more pants from this website:) By the way, I haven't washed it yet, so can't say anything about durability.
