Fits on the natural waist with a wide waist band. So comfy.
Very wide leg style is great for dancing and was very typical in the 30s & 40s during the rise of sports casual styles.
Leg length: 32" (approx 31.5 inside seam and 0.5 into rise)
Fabric: Rayon/poly with a touch of elastene for stretch
Care: 30 degrees machine wash
Manufactured in the UK
These trousers fit on the natural waist but do have a nice wide waist band which can fit slightly high on some people. The fabric has some stretch but this is more a comfort stretch.
This is definitely a style that will create shape but will require correct underwear ;-)

Well these were exactly what I was looking for in trousers! Great quality fabric, love the colour, fit is perfect round the waist and so comfortable, but most of all it has pockets! The only thing I have to do is take them up as theyre too long in the leg for me. I want them in all the rich autumnal/earthy colours!
Very flattering cut and drape. Sadly, I found they were just slightly too long on me. If I could wear heels they would fit perfectly, but sadly redoing the cuff at the bottom is beyond my sewing capability. (And I didn’t want to mess them up!)
