As soon as I tried these on I was in love. I found the waist very comfortable and supportive enough that I don’t think I would be constantly hiking them up. I tried them on in a size 8 and I’m between an 8 and a 10 in bottoms (10 in Wunder Unders and Wunder Grooves, 8 in Pique Grooves Relaxed Fit Pants and Lulu Pants). I found the large panel of contrast fabric at the waist really, really flattering and feminine. Sadly I’m wearing a non lulu loose fitting shirt that doesn’t allow you to see how lovely the waist of these pants look, but with a Cool Racerback, Power Y or Modern Racer the waist of these will accentuate a curvy waist and flatter large and small hips alike by creating balance. I really like how the band at the waist balances your lower half with a slightly flared leg. The pants were very long on me and would need to be hemmed so that you see the full affect of the flared leg but I wanted to show you these pants on a fuller figure without yoga proportions. I ended up passing on these today because I didn’t get to try on the blurred grey/coal version or the solid black which are the ones I most like. I would love to see these in black with a pink mist waist. The Blurred Grey/Coal may go on my Upload Thursday wish list.
There is no adjustable hem on these pants so this picture shows the additional fabric used to create a knot.
I really like this color in the pants. This picture came in my product alerts today but when I click on the image it took me back to the Lulu website and not the product description page.
