Isaac Mizrahi Live! 24/7 Stretch Cropped Pull-On Pants
Cut too small
I love Isaac's fashions, but went to give them as a gift, cut way too small, not proportioned, very tight on stomach and thighs. You must "size up", not your usual size on these pants. I went by her size on other Isaac pants and this did not hit the mark.
Since these were on clearance.........thought I would give them a try, usually a size 4 would fit me.........these run small.......too tight in the waist & hips........will have to return.
Ordered by the size chart--I could fit in 'em but I couldn't sit in 'em! Why are we back to numerical sizes anyway, I just hate paying for returns that aren't my fault!
Love these pants
Love these pants. Great fit and very comfortable. Purchased another pair in different color. Hope Isaac will make more of these so I can purchase a few more in other colors.
Love everything about these pants BUT.....I recently had to soak them for a while to get out a slight food stain....simple....in cold water. I turned them inside out to be on the safe side as they were black. Well, these WERE black pants, but now they are a faded not black pair of pants. As I was getting them out of the sink from the soaking, the water went from clear to watery inky black. It was not a one time thing. I freshened the cold water in the sink and over and over the black color just kept bleeding and bleeding. I have to say I am truly disappointed especially with them coming from Isaac M. Wondering what to do with my other black pants from him. Dry clean? Suggestions from others who have bought black pants would be appreciated.
I bought these in white and they showed everything. I waited too late to send back so I gave them away.
Darker colors do fade
I own this pant in Firecracker, Cadet Navy, Sand, White and Black. I love the fit and they are very comfortable, but the darker colors have faded some after fewer than half a dozen washings each. I was tempted by the TSV ankle length version in black, but decided against purchasing because of this issue. They would need to be dry cleaned to keep the original color. I am happy with the White and Sand.
I bought the shorts in this version and they were good. For the crop pants I sent back. First the length is odd-was not a crop on me (5'3")-more like short ankle length. Also sizing all over the place. Bought 2 colors-one fit ok (except didn't like length) and other one which was same size I couldn't even get over my knees.
In the 2
Lost a few pounds and now at 105 once again the size 2 fits me beautifully. The picture shows the bottom opening close to the body but it does flare out. I don't mind though, it's still very cute.....just was expecting it to look exactly like the picture.
I ordered my usual size 6. A 6 in Denim and Co is usually comfortable and sometimes even a little large on me. I could barely get these over my hips and even once I got them on, they were tight in the wrong places and baggy in others. Just not a good fit for me.
I think they need a zipper
I think this type of material would work better with a zipper. I have a very hard time getting them over my hips but if I go up a size they will be too baggy on all of the other parts (legs and waste). They are made from a very nice material but I think for this type of "pull on" pants it needs to be a material with more stretch or a zipper is needed. I will be returning these.
Different Pants Than the Ones from last year
In June 2013 I purchased 4 colors of these great pants (A223819). When I came back this summer I was excited to see new colors & promptly ordered 2 more in the same size as last year. I cannot believe they are the same pants - the size was way too big, the material was stretchier and the length was longer. I put the old & new side by side & was so disappointed. Back they went & I am beginning to wonder if purchasing through online is the right thing to do. Esp. when you are using the same item numbers and getting different pants. I had another person review this with me & she agreed they were the same in basic style only. I was one of Isaac's biggest fans for pants but lately i have returned almost ever one i ordered.
