Fit tight with no give
These are really cute pants, i ordered them in blue size 16. I wear a 16/18 (yes i know that size doesnt exsist). these are tight (i havent descided if i am returning them yet), with no give that i can tell. Often the cargos at LB stretch as you wear them, and i am not sure i am willing to risk these not stretching. I am 5'8" and 220lbs. Oh and these pants are REALY soft.

I really wanted to like these
I received these cargo capris in the mail today, and really wanted to like them. They look great - very cool with all the pockets, the draw-string legs and the seams, the fabric is soft and comfortable, and the color (I ordered the grey) is great. However, I had a similar experience some of the other posters did - there's no give in the fabric! I tried them on, and was afraid to move. I didn't even sit down in them, as I was worried I'd split a seam. Unfortunately, these are going back. :(

Love the pockets
These are made of a washed look, lightweight, non-stretch, soft fabric that feels great. The pockets, pocket details and trim are really cute, making these pants look more expensive than they are. I have a relatively proportional square body with a hip measurement matching the chart for the size I purchased, so I have the perfect hip/thigh fit and plenty of ease to sit in them comfortably. I am 5'5" tall, so the top of the waistband falls at my waist, unlike the below-the-waist fit on the taller model pictured. A taller person may find the lower waistband less comfortable when sitting, especially without a model-flat tummy. These pants are a strange length. On the taller model pictured, the length is just below the knee, on me, several inches lower. Personally, I think they look proportionally better on (shorter) me than the model ? think beachcomber (me) rather than pedal pusher (model). And I think the elastic drawstring cuffs make me look 10 years younger. I plan to wear sandals with these ? tennies (with or without socks) will look too dorky.

Cool but tight!
Nice, light fabric but these have a super high rise, and don't stretch at all - a real stuffed sausage experience when you try to sit down. Plus, the fabric is so thin that it shows every little bump in my thighs. Only after I wore them today did I find out the zipper doesn't stay up either.
Overall, nice and cool, but only get them if you plan on wearing a long shirt with them!
