pleated style not for me
I wanted to love these pants, but the bulk around the top was doing me no favours. Material is thick and heavy which makes them drape well, but I was looking for more of a spring/summer/fall pant. They are true to size and were the perfect length for my 5' 7" frame. Too bad they weren't the best cut for me.

Pants ok but fabric creases
I had a few compliments on these pants that I wore for the first time yesterday. The reason for the 3 starts is that the thick, heavy fabric creases a lot from sitting, crossing knees at work. Beware of this. This bothers me as it makes an elevated outfit look immediately less polished. Size8 is my usual size and it fit as expected. I am 5'7 and got the regular length and they hit the floor when wearing flats, which is what I wanted. The one other thing is the side pockets are on the seam which make them less easy to use and also split open if the pants are tight through the hip area. The pockets on the Effortless are not like this and don't have this problem.

Almost perfect
Babaton pants are almost always super true to size and the material of these pants are amazing, I love them over the effortless pants as these are truly wide leg and not tapered. Usual size is medium and the 8 fit perfectly. However I’m short so even though I ordered the short version I still had to get it tailored

These are huge
Super wide leg. I feel like both my legs can fit into one pant leg. And to boot, I ordered the short length and they sent me regular. Thanks.

Sleek option for larger ladies!
I got a size 16, though there was no option to put it in the review. I was hesitant to buy from Aritzia because I am definitely bigger than pretty much all the models shown. However, I’ve been searching for real trousers with pockets for ages, and a friend recommended Effortless. Got those, love them; got these, love them. Comfortable, stylish and with pockets!

Keep the Talls Coming!!
As a pear shaped, thick thighed woman that typically needs to size up 2x then get the waist tailored in order for "wide leg" pants to fit me properly......these are a WINNER. No tailoring needed. I have accepted the Effortless Pant as a full length, straight leg pant, for reference lol (:

Just pay attention to the waist measurement and order accordingly. I have a 28" waist and that corresponds to an 8, not a 6 like elsewhere! This is true to size *for me at Aritzia*, but not compared to other retailers.

I ordered them earlier this fall in Heather Dark Grey and was initially disappointed in the length, so they were returned, unfortunately. So, thank you for listening to the length complaints!!

Pleasepleasepleaseeeee make the tall available in Heather Dark Grey (and every other color) (because I want them all)
