The fabric of these jeans is definitely not see-through at all. It is crisp, sturdy, with just enough stretch. I love that these jeans do not cling or hug to my calves, as most straight jeans seem to do on my legs. They just skim beautifully. You can wear them full length, but they also look great with a big cuff. You can create completely different looks. I bought a size up in these jeans, as I do not like when white jeans are too snug. If you are looking for white jeans, I highly recommend these!
