These pants are perfect for the ladies with larger hips! These are the first active stretch pants I have found that have a slight longer rise which means that they sit on the hips and not around your knees. I've done a lot of activity in them - mowing lawn, gardening, yoga and jogging and these pants stay put. No loss of stretch or color after repeated wearing and washing. Bought a second pair in the butterfly print and plan on getting a second set in the black!
