I like a little more high waisted but that is just my personal preference.
They fit me super low on my stomach and were much tighter than my other XL bottoms.
I actually really like the fit of these pants. The elastic wasit is comfortable and I don't really have to deal with the drawstring at all. I just wish it was a solid colored elastic. The Grey's Anatomy logo makes it feel like I'm a walking ad for the show whenever I need to tuck my shirt in lol!
I have been buying these pants for yeaarrrsss, and they're still my favorite pants.
