These are the 2nd pair of the postpartum crop pants I've ordered, and I love them. I first ordered the black pair to wear soon after my delivery. I'm now almost 6 months postpartum and purchased this pair because I loved the others so much. I do think the panel is a little less firm than the black pair that I have, but I still love the pants. The color is beautiful, too. I'm normally a black and grey legging wearer but decided to branch out and am glad I did. I'm 5'9" 165# and ordered a M. They fit really well and give great support. The material is high quality. I also had great experience with the company when I contacted them with a question. I highly recommend the company and these crop pants!
