After reading all the reviews for the North Face Freedom Insulated Pants, I was extremely excited to receive these pants in the size and color I wanted, Women's Black, size M. The reviews indicated that North Face makes these pants true-to-size. This is absolutely not true. I am always a size Medium but these ski pants fit like clown pants on me, HUGE!, and made me look like a slump. Even after adjusting the waist, I looked like a fat, baggy cow. In addition, the cut for these pants is not very attractive for women. I returned these pants right away, despite the fact that I had to pay for the return shipping charges, but grateful that Dept of Goods is such a reputable company, and ordered a black, size M Nils insulated ski pants. Got the Nils and they made me look beautiful & sexy and fit perfectly. No thanks to North Face for wasting my time and money. Many thanks to Nils for their beautifully cut and well-made and true-to-size ski pants!
