Who shops the staples, just to have them available when needed and forgets they are in the closet.....this girl! I JUST pulled out these joggers to wear the other day on a run to the famers market (paired with my cream/white Tabby tank), and melted. The pants are soooo soft and lovely, that I didn't want to take them off (and that was after a day of running around in 80+ degree weather)! I am a 16W, and went with a (L) since I am only 5'3 and didn't want there to be too much material at the ankle/in the crotch. They are not tight on my midsection (as I carry more weight in my lower belly/fupa), and fit just right on my legs. I will say, if you are plus and have hips/booty sizing down is not ideal.
