I'm undecided about the stars. I decided on three because I will be returning the pants. I ordered these pants when I saw the waist. I have IBS and I can't wear pants with waistbands or all round elastic. I loved the Women with Control fold over waist pants but they are discontinued. I also have quite a bit of Isaac 24/7 since the elastic is only in the back. These pants do have elastic but it is the very wide elastic and it is not gripping. I sized up one size since Clinton said these fit like skinny jeans. The pants arrived and they fit perfectly everywhere except my knees! I must have fat knees because the pants were so tight I felt like the blood was cut off. Since the waist was so good I decided to reorder in the next size up. The pants arrived and they are a little loose in the waist and hips but they are still too tight in the knees. These pants are just not for me. I'm 5"2" 138 lbs. I usually order a 12 in Isaac 24/7 pants. I ordered these in 14 and 16 and neither fit.
Now if you don't have fat knees these might be great pants for you. The fabric is very nice and I liked the way the 14 fit through the hips. Because I am thick through the waist but not very hippy some pants don't fit well from the hip to the thigh. These fit nicely in that area. The fabric does not have very much stretch. I did think the cost was a bit high but if they had fit I would not complain. Sad to return.
