There seems to be a real sizing issue with these. Style excellent but the fit was hopeless. I'd read earlier reviews and sized up to an 18- it was at least 2 inches too small. I swapped for a size 20. That, too, was 2 inches too small. I measured the size 20 waistband- 33" was the most I could persuade it to be. It's interesting to read the reviewer who had a sales assistant measure them in the shop and found them wrongly labelled...hmm! Loved them but no way were there would fit. VERY sad.

The trend pant of SS15 with stitched pleats at waistband creating fullness through the leg. With side pockets and zip front fastening.
The drape of these culottes is just sublime. Wear with the Crop Top for great little co-ord or shake it up and add a nipped in jacket or body.

I absolutely LOVED the fabric and hang of these, I so desperately wanted the reviews to be wrong and to be able to keep them but it was not to be... These are ridiculously small on the waist even when I ordered a size up from my usual size!
Stitching was terrible, zip crooked, the whole piece was awry. I have a very narrow waist for my size, yet this culotte was almost too tight. Material is nice and thick, but that makes it unsuitable to wear it in the hot weather one would need to team it with the top. Shame, the ensemble looked really good in the picture.
There is a problem with the sizing on these, I tried a 14 which is normally perfect, they were far too small, tried a 16 way too big, The lady in the shop measured them all and they were marked up wrong on both the label and the swing ticket. I tried an 18 and they fit perfect !
These pants are perfect a bit large in the waist, the top is odd, it feels tight around the waist but it is supposed to. I need to pull it off my shoulders.
As other reviewers mentioned the culottes are nice, but very small in the waist. Would have loved to keep them but they are way too tight in my size and a bigger size would make them odd in other places. Nice idea, bad execution...
The culottes do fit small for their rated size. It is better to go a size up to what one would normally wear.
Although this culotte drapes nicely over my hips and behind and is a good length, the waist comes up small. I'm a UK size 14 in all of LTS clothes, but this culotte waist measures 76 cm round (LTS size guide for a 14 says 79 cm). Unfortunately I'll have to send it back as it's too tight.
