I've been reading that the design of the Groove pant has changed to have less flare at the bottom. This was actually how they were a few years ago and then the Groove Pant Sneak was brought in where the flare was widened to fit over your shoe and then I think the larger flare was brought in as a permanent change until now. I didn't buy Grooves until recently so if I have my Groove history wrong, please correct me.
This is another reason we are noticing the new model's very muscular thighs and bum - a wider flare would balance her hips a bit more.
