Hanes EcoSmart&reg; Cotton-Rich Women's Drawstring Sweatpants
I was amazed to find that ordering my normal size 2X worked out for these sweatpants! They are very comfortable and I like the cotton-rich fabric. I am dieting and will lose weight in the future, so I plan to wear these as long as I can (with the help of the tie in the waistband) and when I lose 20 lb or so, I'll order some more. The sizing on these sweatpants is really correct and matches industry standards. Very pleased with this product.
P.S. My husband thinks they look GREAT with the matching pink T-shirt! :)

Some sweatpants are baggy and decidedly unattractive. Not these! The fit is flattering--loose enough to be super comfy, yet not sloppy or slouchy. The rise is just right--it's not too low, nor do the pants want to hike up into your ribcage--and the leg length is perfect. I love that there are no pockets to add bulk where no one needs it, and the width of the legs is neither clingy nor baggy.
The only reason I didn't score these puppies five stars is that the drawstring waistband gets wonky after a few washings. I've bought these pants on several occasions and it has happened with every single pair. Ultimately, I end up pulling the strings out as far as I can and clipping them off . Not ideal, but it works. I always wear them with tees that cover the waistband anyway, so it's really no big deal.
On my last order, I bought these and tried out the new Hanes EcoSmart Womnen's Bootcut Sweatpants, too. I LOVED the waistband on those, but hated everything else about them. If Hanes were to take these pants and give them the waistband of the bootcut ones, they'd have themselves the perfect pair of sweats.

good light wt sweat pants
I am 5'5" and usually take a size XL in womens sweat pants or a Med in mens sweat pants.
These were about an 1-1.5" long. BUT after I washed/dried them, they shrank and fit perfectly. They are somewhere between lite to med weight. Great for springtime/summer morning walks or for just around the house.

Very Good Product
I really like these pants. They are too long for me, but since i"m 4'11", everything is, including most petite sizes. I washed and dried them, but they didn't shrink at all. Out comes the needle and thread!
