When I saw that SF came out with shorter, lighter-weighted fabric in the style of their infamous Waves of Freedom pants, I was kidding myself thinking I maybe wouldn't love them as much, so I only ordered one pair. I have now gone back and ordered my size in all the colors available, and hope that perhaps a light purple/lavendar or maybe even a tan/camel color will come out too for my wardrobe delight. If you own the original WoF pants, these pants differ from those in some crucial ways: length, fabric weight & breathability, and style cut. The hidden drawstring waist feature is carried over into this design, but the thigh region has been cut wider for a bit roomier fit. The length has been cropped which makes the wave layers closer together vertically but this doesn't impact the movement of the pants as you walk. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the fabric in these pants is akin to your favorite t-shirt from ten years ago: stretchy, lightweight & very breathable. I agree with another reviewer who said that they don't even feel like you're wearing them, which is great for the hot summer months! That being said, the thinner material means that fabric lines are a bit more evident, so if you aren't going to pair these pants with a tunic top, you may want to choose a pair of seamless "no show" undies or a thong/gstring to ensure that your right butt cheek isn't displaying any panty lines.
For a tighter fit, these pants could be tossed in the dryer after washing (which is something I've learned *not* to do with the originals, as they do shrink!) but since the weaving on the garment runs vertically, most of the shrinkage will probably occur in the length/height. Another tip for washing/drying these pants: consider using a garment bag or line drying to preserve shape and to protect the inner drawstring. Otherwise, you may want to tie the outer tie and/or drawstring before washing to prevent it from coming out: I had to re-string 2 of 3 of my pants after washing, but the 1 pair that had the side overtie looped singly was enough to prevent the inner drawstring from being pulled out by my other clothes.
These are NOT the original WoF pants, these are the funky younger sister. The differences between the two styles are small, but worth noting, espcially if you are a more petite woman. I am 5'4" and wear these pants in a size small, but these fit more like a roomy small or a tighter medium compared to the original style simply due to the way the leg circumference was cut for the cropped style. I don't mind these small differences, and look forward to more colors in both this & the original WoF style this fall :)

This is probably my 8th time buying from Soul Flower, and this purchase is the first one I've ever had to send back. I wanted a pair of pants but couldn't choose, so I picked based on customer reviews, which were very promising for these pants.
I wear a 12 size pant normally, so I got a LG, and they are huge on me!! Even with the draw-string (which is a nice plus!) they were too big in the waist, and the leg part was looser on my thighs than I thought, and actually make my thighs look bigger.
That being said, they are very comfy and I really wish they fit :( Oh well, I will just get something else and I'm positive I'll love it.

Seriously! I love them. I already own two pairs. I have fibromyalgia and I am very sensitive to clothing. These are so light and soft I have no issues while wearing them. They seem very durable as well.

I purchsed these in grey and I have to say, they are the comfiest pants. They are so lightweight they feel like I'm wearing nothing at all (cue Ned Flander's voice) and for someone living in the desert where temperatures are regulary in the 90s before noon, it's nice to have lightweight pants for the summer.
These pants have a nice drape and swing as well and could be worn casual or with more a more dressy top for work wear. I plan to grab one in every color as soon as I can.
