Size is as expected. Flattering cut that sits just at the right spot!
Not quite high waisted
I would describe these as more of a mid rise, they need about 1-2 more inches of fabric to hit just below my belly button, which is what I would consider high waisted. I have average proportions and I’m 5”4 for reference. Other than the fit not being ideal as far as waist height/flattering coverage, they are really nice quality and really comfortable. I went swimming in them and they stayed put really nicely. I would definitely order from this brand again.
