First of all the material quality is stunning, I love the linen look and was worried it could be itchy. It's not! I would not call them soft, but it is sturdy, thick and breathable material that holds its shapes. It's a tad bit see-through which you can see in the size-view photo where the tag is visible, but with beige or nude undies you'll be perfctly fine to wear it out!! Only other downside is I find the front inseam wear the zip is hangs a little low, since the pants are quite high-rise I wish the crotch seam had been adjusted to be a bit more fitted in order to avoid it wrinkling up when I walk. Otherise love these pants soooo much. I'm 5'6'' and have a small waist and rounder hips and bum for reference.
