When I saw these I had to order as for a mature gal the high waist is more comfortable and flattering. I had to wait for a sale as they were quite pricey. Only color was white too, bummer. I like the soft fabric I am 5'5" and 150lbs. I ordered a size 8. They are a little baggy in the waist so will have to wear a belt. I haven't washed them yet as I don't wear white often. Hope to see more high waisted styles in the future.
