Lena ponte jacquard pant
These feel amazing!
I love these slacks! They fit me wonderfully. I love the drape, the fabric, and the fit. The heavier fabric is great for fall and winter, and feels so soft on my skin. At a glance, they don't look like they would feel silky, but they do. They are very comfortable and are perfect for work, very professional looking.

Great looking pants that fit oddly
I'm very thick waisted and as I've grown older, I have found comfort is key. I am not afraid to wear elastic waisted pants as dress pants for work. That being said I was happy to find these. I love the jacquard print and the ponte styling. I exchanged the 14/16 for an 18/20 because I couldn't even get the 14/16 past my knees. The 18/20, however, slipped on easily. Unfortunately there isn't an elastic waistband on these pants-they are just slightly stretched fabric and that said there is nothing holding the pants up. So I found myself constantly adjusting to try to "make" them fit. They truly look like frumpy, baggy pants. Certainly do not like them.

Heavy (thick) fabric.
Waistband is not stretch
Looks much better in the photos than in person, a friend called them ugly.
I am an old school 'Blue Circle' in pants. and usually wear a 22 (4blue circle) in LB pants bought 22/24tall.. length was good.
Too big in the hips, wont stay up, but tight on the thighs

Ponte: check ; Pull on: check ; Petite: check!!
Every year at this time I check out LB's new trousers. I am always looking for comfortable flattering suitable for work pants. I especially like pull-on pants with an elastic waist, and LB has had some of the nicest best-fitting styles over the years. I find that their elastic waist pull-on pants can be worn even as my weight fluctuates. I find that trousers with zippers only fit well over a short range of weight fluctation.. I also look for PONTE knit fabric pants as PONTE drapes well and is flattering. PONTE also has a richer look, more like wool fabric, but softer and more comfortable , and less expensive than wool. I also look for Petite length so I don't have the added expense and bother of having them altered.
I love the new Lena Ponte Jacquard Pant. It is a rich heavy fabric that will be nice all autumn and winter. I love that it is a classic herringbone rather than just black, or gray. For the money, especially with a promotion, these pants are very nice. As far as fit, just like last year, LB could have added more elastic in the waist. The pants pulled on easily, but that was because that size fit me well EXCEPT in the waist where it was too big. And actually I am an apple shape with weight in the waist. Sadly I will have to take these to be altered in the waist so they fit better. I am keeping them because they are very good-looking Ponte, Petite length, classic herringbone pattern pants.
