Best Pants Ever
How I love these pants. Flattering, gorgeous, comfortable - look great with heels and pumps. Going to have to get myself another pair as I can't do without them when they are being laundered! Fit is big, I'm a 10-12 and the XS were perfect.

Lovely fabric but generously sized
I loved the feel of these pants but for me (normally size 8) the XS was just too big. The waistband itself is quite a thin band of elastic and they just don't feel that they will stay in place.

Comfort and style
Fabric has a soft feel and compliments the shape. Well designed and pure comfort.

fantastic material, fit and comfort factor
Worth every penny, difficult to not live in these - not too baggy as in MC Hammer style for those who can remember the era - fab contemporary cut and feel like a cuddle from a pair of trousers...will be investing in others when budget allows

Fab, versatile Bannatyne pants.
Comfortable, flattering fit. Great for yoga class, didn't fail during headstand. Perfect for about town cycling. Worn also as alternative to jeans. Can look quite smart with brogues and tailored suit style jacket. Fab with my leopard print jacket and well loved converse. On those self conscious days there is room for give. Not meant for running, not streamlined enough. So far washed well.

I could live in these
These are just baggy enough to be stylish without looking like a diaper. I bought a small, but would have preferred an x-small if they could have sourced these in any of the nearby stores as the waist band is a little roomy for me (I am 1.6 metres, 53 kg, and am fairly proportionate throughout). However, the length/fit/waist are all proportional and I don't feel like I'm swimming in excess fabric. They are the softest, most comfortable pants I own. If it were acceptable to wear these to work or other 'adult' places I would wear them everywhere, everyday. Highly, highly recommended.

Not so flattering
Yes these are comfortable and probably look fine if you are young, slim and toned. But on me - older, bit thick around the middle - I've come to think they have the unfortunate look of old-fashioned clingy long johns. Maybe it's because the fabric is quite thin. I seem to look better in fabric with more heft.

Comfort is King
These pants are wonderfully soft and allow complete freedom of movement (although I did choose to buy them slightly big rather than a perfect fit - albeit partly because the perfect fit size wasn't in stock in the store I went to). It feels like wearing your favourite pyjamas. The only drawback is that the low-slung bottom sometimes makes me feel that they need hoiking up! But I like them very much and so far they have not shrunk or twisted in the wash (at two washes and counting). The best thing about them is that I feel completely unrestricted around the hip joints. The tapered leg feels good although I wonder whether it looks a bit odd to others. But who cares, comfort rules, OK!

Fantastic for yoga or everyday life!
I love these pants. The fabric is lovely and soft, but does not 'show' too much. I have already ordered a second pair in black! I ordered a small and am a medium in other SB pants so they are a bit bigger. I'm 5'4" with a 38" hip if that helps any online shoppers out there. The length is perfect. I can see wearing these for yoga, travel or just to be comfortable.

Most comfortable for all activities
I have a medical condition which precludes me from wearing tight fitting trousers and am always looking for harem style pants. These are superb and I am virtually living in these wearing them as leggings under tunics and shorter dresses as well as for exercise. I do pilates and Nordic walking and am planning to do yoga this summer. I would like more colours: navy, purple, pink for example. I cannot recommend these highly enough and am planning to buy at least 2 more pairs. More colours and perhaps cotton jersey ones for the summer. Thank you for stocking these pants.
