Totally agree with above reviewer. I have these jeans in the Anthracite colorway and have tried on the white and plan to buy them eventually too. It feels like I've tried on every pair of white jeans we carry and this is THE ONE. The fabric content, weight and cut are key: 98 percent Cotton/Poly, 2 percent stretchy gives the best balance of (suck it all in) support, (without making it difficult to breathe) give. The weight is just thick enough to provide cover without feeling too heavy. Love the rise, they definitely go up to the belly button and the vertical shaping seams across the back of the yoke. These jeans are made to show off curves. I am 43, 5'3", 155-165 lbs usually wear a sz. large or size 10. I wear the sz.30 in this style and love the fit.
