If these were sized properly, I'd gladly give them 5 stars. Never in all my years of buying Alfani clothing have I had any article of clothing that ran at least 2 sizes too small. Alfani used to be a brand I could trust to have some breathing room. I bought a matching jacket with these online for an event I have in 4 days. I wear a 14, and the Macy's "suggestion" suggests I order 14S. I am short, 5' 1", so I ordered 14S. I could barely get these up, and there is a 3" gap (at least) to get the zipper together! I really wish brands could be consistent like the old days. Let me add, the fabric quality and rich black color are perfect, so that's the 3 stars. Sizing is a guessing game. The "short length" wasn't short!
