I ordered these in a plus size 22 (my normal size at most plus size stores) and they were too big in the thighs and too small in the waist. I am hourglass shaped and carry most of my weight in my bottom and thighs, so for these to be too big in that area and too small in the waist tells me that the cut is just off on these. Nice attempt at making plus size clothes, and I'm happy to see more companies making them, but they're just not quite there yet. Additionally, I'm short so they were WAY too long for me, but I was expecting I would have to have them shortened. I love the quality of Eddie Bauer, but for now I will stick to the specialized plus size stores that have a better fit to my body. I returned this item.
