I agree that the high waistband is nice for smoothness but would have preferred at least an inch or two shorter. When wearing these on warm summer days I don't like the feel of thick fabric that high up on my waist. Overall, I am not a fan on this crop because I will always look at them as being the replacement for the Dance Studio Crop and therefore will not be spending anymore money on them. Also, I read a review calling them baseball pants and now that is all I see when I look at them.
OT: heads up to those ppl who were waiting for blooming pixie WUC. I saw somebody from Ontario selling a pair so looks like they are in Canada
