Promising Review: “I’ve been looking for a go-to pair of capris for a long time, and my search ended with a pair of these amazing capris. I’m so happy with them, I’ll be ordering a pair in each denim color available. These are perfect, with just enough spandex to get a comfortable and formfitting fit. They are a light weight denim, so they will be great for summer. I love them — I’ve already worn them several times, and I just got them a few weeks ago.” —Jenny

Amazon

Promising Review: “I bought these shorts for the gym because I don’t like to wear the long leggings in the summer. I get too hot. I really like the length. They’re not too short for an older woman. They have a high waist that I love and they stay in place so I’m not constantly pulling them up. They are made really well, the quality of fabric and workmanship is great. And I have to mention the TWO pockets. Love them! Why doesn’t every company do that?? I really like them so I will probably buy more. Happy customer!” —Katy

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I never write reviews, but these are easily the best jeans I have ever owned in my life and I had to share!!! They fit perfectly in every way to the point where I can’t believe these aren’t custom made for me. They are incredibly comfortable without sacrificing the look of real jeans and the tummy panel is FANTASTIC. On top of all of that, these are more comfortable than my leggings. I’m in love with these pants and will be purchasing the rest of the colors to replace every other pair of jeans I own.” —Anonymous

Promising Review: “These are AMAZING, and I will be purchasing more in different colors! When I pulled them out of the package, they were super soft and felt very well made. I am very satisfied. Two of my friends have since ordered these pants also and we all love them! They fit nicely and wash well. They look small when you first open the package, but they were perfect. AND they have POCKETS(!) 🙂 which was the major selling point for me! Thick material, not see through at all. I am very satisfied, and will be ordering more!” —Erin Moore

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising Review: “I love these Adidas pants more than I can say. I bought them on a whim and ended up being so happy once I got them. The tapered leg looks feminine and not so shapeless, while still being very comfortable and casual. I have a more pear shape, so I was concerned they would be too tight around the booty and thighs, but they are very flattering.” —Jordan Lewis

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: “I’m obsessed with these! They are so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them since I opened the package yesterday. They are cute enough to wear during the daytime and comfy enough to sleep in! I got them mostly to wear after showering at the gym to go run errands, but I’ll probably wear them for everything. The drawstring waist helps fit different waist sizes. The fabric is a soft cotton with a nice medium weight to it. I love the fact that there are two back pockets in addition to the two full front pockets. Overall, these are great, and I would love to try some more colors!” —Brooke Boyd

Amazon

Promising Review: “Love these slacks. They can be dressed up or down. They’re GREAT because they don’t really wrinkle and don’t hog up room when you fold them away. They are also very light weight, yet they feel and look substantial. I use them as my ‘dress’ trousers (I even re-ordered another pair) and wear them with nice, complementary blouses. They are a snap to wash and dry. THIS IS A GREAT BUY!” —nancy smith
