The waist band can be gathered or worn folded flat, dependent on the top you wear with it. These are true to size, length is great for flats or low heel, I LOVE paisley so these are my favorite!!!!
JED has this in regular size and bought one for my daughter, so i am thrilled they carry this in PLUS now. By the way these are not one of those slinky poly spandex blend palazzo pants. This is the soft, stretchy cottony kind of material. I bought my regular size which is 2XL and here is the actual measurements of the garment while laying flat: Waist is 17" across without stretching so that's 34" waist. Inseam is 33" Fabric is very stretchy so that would give you extra 3 to 4 inches more just to give you an idea.
