I've been buying the Estelle pants for over a decade and I LOVE them! I have every color, and they hold up brilliantly over time, several of my old ones are still in rotation. The one thing I'll say is that the fit has changed over the years. I used to wear a size small, and my older smalls still fit perfectly (thankfully I haven't expanded). With the past few orders, however, I've noticed that the small is smaller - the rise is lower and the inseam is shorter. I used to always cut of a couple of inches from the bottom, but the new smalls are actually verging on just a tad short ( I'm 5'6" and I didn't grow). Also they used to have only a tie at the waist, but now have a tie and elastic (kind of overkill - I've been removing the tie). I now tried ordering a Medium which seems to be a similar snug fit, but offers a higher rise and a longer inseam - problem solved!
I will continue to order the mediums - I only wish they came in more colors...please!
I have to admit I now own an excessive amount of green apple pants. I love the way the material feels against my skin and they wash and dry so well. Every time I wear these my daughter asks what pants I have on because they look so great. I finally bought her a pair and she loves them too. We have two very different body shapes, and the same styles look good on both of us.
I love green apple active. I’ve been buying it for years and it’s so comfortable.I Wish I could wear it all the time. You also can’t beat the super fast free shipping!
I ordered a L (I’m a size 8) and they fit snugly, but comfortably. I’m about 5’8 and 160 lbs. I bought the 33’ Estelle Black Beauty pants and love them! They’re the perfect length and very breathable and stretchy. The waist is high and is juuuuust loose enough not to be tight, but if you’re bigger around the tummy I’d go a size up. Flattering pants.
I have been purchasing this style of pants for years and absolutely have loved them. The most recent ones that I bought are a new design that have a heavier elastic. I personally find it too constricting and much prefer the older versions. The fabric is a little different and it’s very nice but I don’t love the new elastic. I hope the older design makes return because I would definitely buy more!
Thank you for the input and we did raise the size of the hidden elastic from 1/2 to 3/8th. Mainly due to what is available to have our goods arrive on schedule.
Our Eco Air Tek bamboo fabric is the same bamboo organic cotton just a new dye lot. So when you go with nature it does have some tendencies to have a bit of variance. We try!
So much appreciate the input. Thank you!
