I bought these too long in the sale, having read the reviews that they would shrink, which they did. However, the seams have also puckered, which I had not bargained on! I'm writing this review to pass on a tip, which is that they are generously cut, so you can simply sew a new seam down the length of the leg, and cut off the puckered seam. They are still nice. I actually think they are slightly more flattering this way.

These arrived a little long for me so I decided to wash them first in case they shrunk, which was a good thing, as they did shrink. They have shrunk across the fabric so are now too tight and the cotton in the seams has shrunk so that now they are puckered up the legs which makes the hem uneven. So unless the fabric stretches while wearing them, I have a pair of uncomfortable pants.
I already have some LTS palazzos so got these as another pair. As always I have to have the leg taken up by an inch to 35" (I don't wear heels) and also found the waist cinched much more than my previous pair. Maybe I could have sized up but the hips fit nicely. Anyway, i found a seamstress who can let out the waist for me as my skills are nowhere nears so good. Overall, I like them but wish the waist had been a little more generous (or maybe it's my Summer of indulgence?)
I loved these trousers when I got them. Soft, fitted perfectly, and flattering. They really were perfect. until I washed them. They say you can wash on 40 degrees, but I washed on 30 to be sure - but the legs have still shrunk by several inches and also not uniformly so the legs are wonky length at the bottom. Such a huge shame. They have now turned into trousers I don't want to wear - pretty expensive for four wears. I'm so disappointed.
Found and bought these pants in store and was obsessed. Perfect length, material, and style UNTIL their first wash. I washed on delicate and air-dried but the pants shrunk at least an inch in length. Now they are an awkward length and I'm self-conscious to wear because they are just too short. Disappointing as I was only able to wear them twice and they are quite expensive, especially for purely cotton pants.

The minimal waistband and concealed side zip gives a really smooth silhouette over the tummy. I can wear a skinny-fit vest pulled down over the hips with these as there is no lumpy-bumpy fly/button/waistband to protrude. A flattering, slimming effect. Generous leg length (which could be easily shortened at home if necessary as the base of the leg is square-cut, not tapered).
