Soft, flattering, high in the rise, and NOT sausage casing. They are soft and comfortably snug. Fabric is very substantial. Absolutely no bagging out after multiple wears, and the blue dye doesn't bleed onto your clothes either. Great on curvier figures too. THIS is how I expect premium denim to fit and feel, and it did not dissappoint. They run true to size, unlike most premium denim which has been running small for several seasons.
