Reviewed by Sara from Boulder CO on Sunday, January 12, 2014I love these, and have many pairs. They have held up really well to washing, and throwing them in the dryer doesn't seem to harm them at all either. I find that I don't have to iron them, though with black I usually need to defuzz a little with a lint brush. The grey color is my favorite. I wish I could buy more! I'm 5'8" 160lb and the size 10 fits pretty well, though I need to wear a belt to keep them from sagging.
Reviewed by The Hungry Cardinal from California on Saturday, August 10, 2013Got these because they matched a jacket I bought earlier and the description said they were a "missy fit," which sounded hopeful for my hourglass/pear shape. (I have 40" hips, ~23" thighs, and a 27" waist at the smallest part.) I would have normally ordered an 8, but others said they ran large and there was only a 6 available, so I tried it.
The verdict: Nope. WAY too tight in the hips and thighs to look professional, even for a young'un like myself. And of course, the waist was still loose enough to require a belt. Length was good for me though; I'm 5'8" and 2" heels are about as high as I go. Anyway, they'll have to go back. Not sure whether to try different Amanda + Chelsea pants or just start my suit search over from scratch...
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Anabanana from Iowa Farm on Thursday, January 3, 2013Very nice pants, but order a size or two smaller than what you normally wear. I ordered a size smaller and still had to cut six inches off the bottom of the legs.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by fabricgirl from grand rapids, MI on Wednesday, January 2, 2013great stylish pants that were very well made for the price. They are very long but the fit is excellent. They are perfect for work.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lynn from nyc on Friday, November 23, 2012Nice fit and drape of material.
They need hemming.
THe waist band sits on hips exactly right and the wide band is flattering and stomache flattening.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Dr. Liz from St. Louis, MO on Tuesday, October 16, 2012These pants were a surprise. I got a great deal on them, and expected them to be cheap, but they aren't at all. They have this wide waistband that's both flattering and comfortable. The legs are fitted but manage to be flattering as well. Will definitely start following this brand.
