Soft and comfortable. The Monroe Boyfriend runs roomy through hips & waist for that "boyfriend" sag. I wear a 27 in AG jeans, am currently about 5 lbs overweight (AGs are tight) - these 27s are already riding comfortably on my hips after 10 minutes and they're only going to get bigger. It's a good look (more of a classic boyfriend fit) but it's a different look than the one shown on the model, which is a snugger, more fitted style.
I plan to order a 26 to get the snugger fit. Perhaps it will be nice to have both but once I lose these five pounds these pants (27) may be too large
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
