~ Sideline Pant in Indigo Stripe, size 6 ~
My VPS made me try on this track pant. I wasn't a fan of them on the hanger and only a little less when I tried them on. They are cute and apparently there's a mens' version of this pant too. But, I think they best on someone with slim hips and thighs. I avoid "tapers at the leg" because of the ice-cream-cone look. As far as fit, I went with a size 6 and that fit well. There wasn't any pulling at the hips and the waist has a drawstring so no issues there. The ankle is elastic but you can't tell so much on me as the length is at the floor.
~ Cuffed Lightweight Pant in Chambray, size 6 ~
I was very interested in these Chambray Pants when they came out online. The Chambray is very lightweight and will make a great pant for Summer. I did notice when putting them on that they were tight on my calf when I flexed. "That's odd", is what I thought to myself. They fit well in the size 6 but felt a little tight when I moved around.
I decided to sit down to see how they fit since they felt snug upon movement. Sure enough, the cotton-linen-denim material is not very stretchy and really tight on my thighs and calves. This means I would have to size up to an 8 and have them tailored in the length. The elastic hem already hits the floor so I would need to decide if I wanted to salvage that or just crop it off. And since I already have the Chambray pant from the Factory from last year, it would look like I had two pairs, though slightly different in color. I was really disappointed these didn't fit overall. And they do not come in Petite sizing either. I do suggest taking your true size in pants unless you have more athletic legs, then you may want to size up.
~ Drawstring Foulard Pant, size 6 ~
I was very interested in the print and texture of the pant but there was only a size 6 to try on. I definitely need an 8 in these since I couldn't even button them. I might even Petite 10 because they are pretty slim. Overall a pass for me. Try these on if you can and probably size up one.
~ Punched-Out Eyelet Short, size 8 ~
I loved the Midi Skirt in this print but knew it wouldn't work for me due to the length so I was very happy to see this also came in a short. I originally thought the eyelet border was navy but it's actually black. The background of the eyelet is pink. I haven't wavered from a size 8 in shorts for several years now and that is still the case with these shorts. I really liked the short and can see why the Midi Skirt is getting great reviews online.
Of everything I tried on, I bought the Punched-Out Eyelet Short. It's the one thing I know I'll wear through the Spring and Summer.
