Terrible, Awkward Fit It seems like the majority of women that are writing reviews here are size 4 or smaller. So here's some input from a more averaged sized lady, I'm 5'10 and either an 8 or 10 depending on brand, cut, and the usual weight ups and downs. I bike regularly and have curvy thighs and muscular calves and am always on a quest for slim fitting straight leg pants. The 10 fit perfectly around the waist and butt, but they were stretched tight across my thighs bunched awkwardly just above and around my knees and then fell loosely to my ankle. The length was great, not verging on too short like most pants. The overall fit looked terrible, the Columnist pants are not cut for women with fuller thighs. March 19, 2012
Love!! These are the best pants ever! Fit and feel great! December 29, 2011
Great Fit, Belt Loops a Must I love these pants. Even if you pair them with a simple button down long sleeved shirt they make the outfit look more tailored. The only things I would caution are the fabric and belt loops. After wearing the pants a few times a noticed the waist beginning to stretch a little bit. So I would suggest specifically looking for belt loops if would prefer to be able to tuck shirts into the pants because not all colors include belt loops. Also pay attention to the material. There are a couple different fabrics that the columnist come in some more stiff some thinner and more relaxed. March 22, 2013
I am 5'3" and got a 10 short. The length is great with heels. These are very flattering pants. I find that most dress pants are too tight in the waist and loose everywhere else but not these. I really like this style a lot. March 20, 2013
