      They look fine on me

          Best Uses

            I wasn't sure what the fit would be on me, based on the reviews, but couldn't pass up the sale so decided to give these pants a try. My concerns were as follows. I'm tall, 5'9", so one concern was that the length would be awkward, but my legs are not very long (sigh) despite my height, so the overall length is okay. Another concern was the side trim. I was worried that it might make my thighs seem bulky. But no, it doesn't do that. Another concern was that these pants would be cut like the bistro pants which fit terribly on me, with too much fabric around the thighs -- Boden's bistro pants make me look like a cartoon character from pixar movies, you know, big bums, narrowing to miniature calves. Anyway, fortunately, these pants are cut the same as Boden's skinny jeans which fit me well. So, overall a good fit and a good purchase.

              These pants are totally awesome!!! They look fabola and they fit great! They are great, I have a curvy figure and these fit me great!!!! They are a great alternative to jeans, I bought 2 pair of these. Everyone should these as a staple in their wardrobe. I am 5'2" and weigh 127" and bought the size 6, they fit perfectly in the waist - which is like a miracle from above! They are super flattering. Thank you Boden!!!!

              This isn't the first time I've ordered Boden pants only to be disappointed by the fit. I am slim, but have more of a "straight" body type and these pants are ONLY going to fit those who have VERY tiny waists compared to their hips. Please, Boden, recognize that not all of us have hourglass figures!!! Perhaps you could do as other companies have done and offer different fits in some of your most popular pants--curvy, straight, etc. These are made of a lovely stretch velvet and the black piping made them even more versatile and dressy and I would dearly loved to have kept them.

                  I got my usual size 2 and they are perfect. I got a petite, which I normally do not select for pants as I am short (5'2") but have long legs. But since these are ankle pants, they fit well. There is striping on the side in black that gives them a tuxedo look. Great cocktail party pants!

                  I loved them, but they were too tight. I know from an earlier attempt that the next size up would be too big.

                    Great pair of pants, nice quality, ok fit, but the trim was a deal breaker. It is an ribbon edge sticking out off the seams, not noticeable when looking from the front, but looks ugly wen looking side-wise

                      I adore the colors and the fabric of these pants. However, I was so disappointed to find that even the Long hit me well above my ankle. Further, the cut and fit were odd. The front rise was high enough, but the back barely covered my tush - not attractive, and not something I've run into before! The low-cut rise, the over-all construction and the shorter length made my 33-inseam legs look very short and chubby - and I'm 5'8" ! They are going back...
