I am about 5'7", 130 lbs, and very curvy (meaning wide behind, narrowish waist). I had a hard time finding cycling bottoms that don't pull down and expose all in the back. I have lycra and wool tights that work great for long rides, but I needed pants that I can walk around in when I get to destinations around town. These are the ones! They are form fitting but not tight; thin enough to wear in hot weather; roomy enough for a base layer if called for; and they just look like pants.
