Susan Graver Cotton Sateen Straight Leg Reg Pants with Elastic Back
Think before purchase
I have heard Susan Graver say over and over again how much she knows how to fit womens pants. I ordered my regular QVC size, which is a large, and I will say that I am not an oversized large. The pant was cut so small I could barely get them pulled up to my waist. So I sent them back and foolish me I reordered in an X-large, oh my gosh, you could put two people in those pants. The legs of the pants are huge, I could probably put both my legs in one of these. It was my first time to order SG pants and it will be my last. Fourteen dollars down the drain for S&H. Susan please do not tell us how great you are on fitting pants. Not so.
The pants fit great and the material is a nice weight for the warmer weather. However, I am totally annoyed by the zipper. First time I put them on, the zipper broke! I was out of town with no other pants to wear. Fortunately, I had on a long enough sweater to cover it and no one but me knew. What is even more annoying is the fact that I spent $15 to have them professionally hemmed. These are going back as defective. For the price of these pants, I expect much higher quality than what I received.
HAD TO SEND BACK AS WHEN TRIED ON AND THEN STARTED TO TAKE OFF THE ZIPPER WENT DOWN ONLY ABOUT 2" AND STOPPED---NOTHING WAS CAUGHT IN THE ZIPPER. THANK GOODNESS SHE FINALLY PUT AN ALL ELASTIC BACK IN THE PANTS SO THEY FIT WITH SOME ROOM TO GET THEM OFF. I WAS SO GLAD TO SEE A FULL ELASTIC BACK SO THEY WOULD FIT MY WAIST THOUGH I WEAR MEDIUM AND DON'T UNDERSTAND AS SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A PANTS EXPERT---CAN NEVER GET A SG PANT THAT ISN'T TOO SMALL IN THE WAIST. I LOVE FULL LENGTH SATEEN PANTS FOR SUMMER SO I HOPE SHE PUTS OUT SOME MORE ESPECIALLY IN WHITE, BLACK AND NAVY. WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME OF THE WIDER LEG PANTS IN SATEEN STYLED LIKE LISA WEARS EVERY MONDAY NIGHT. I WONDER WHY WE KEEP SEEING LISA AND ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL MODELS IN WIDE LEG WHITE PANTS THAT ARE DRESSY OR CAN BE DRESSED UP BUT NONE ARE EVER FOR SALE EXCEPT IN KNITS OR JEANS. SUSAN PLEASE TRY TO MAKE SOME OF THESE PANTS AND BE SURE TO MAKE THE WAIST LARGER THAN YOUR USUAL. THANKS. I THINK SUSAN IS THE EXPERT IN JACKETS AS THEY ALWAYS ARE PERFECT FITS.
You can see the panty lines and I refuse to wear a body shaper in the summer when it is hot outside. I know better, white should be lined unless they are true denim.
A great comfortable fit for curves
I'm a size 8 with curves, and these fit absolutely perfect and true to size, thanks Susan!
Not for me!
I ordered the white and khaki and these are too big for me!! I ordered a Medium, my normal size with SG, but there is too much material in the legs - they aren't what I would consider straight. The length was too long (I'm 5'3"). I gave it 3 stars because the fabrication is very nice and I really wished they had worked. I have sent back several SG items lately so not sure what is happening.
Not so great
Bought 3 prs, blk,wht,stone; first time I put the black ones on the zipper broke, and the pants weren't too tight. So, I wore the white ones, stretched out beyond belief. I finally got smart and saved the packaging until after washing and wearing; all 3 prs going back. Would try a medium, but none left. What is with the quality control these days??
Pretty weight and color!
I so wanted to be able to keep these pants, but can't as they don't sit right on my lower half. I was very happy that the "rise" finally worked for me on SG pants as many I have ordered recently, had to go back because the rise was just too much. Having to roll the waist band down to make them sit right, should not be something we have to do. Anyways, these pants are just great--the stone color, the sateen--very pretty. Unfortunately, with my Excess" baggage, did not flatter me from behind. SO, off to wait for the next pair coming in the mail. P.S. I am 5'4" and these were not too long--great length!
Loved the fabric and color (I ordered navy), but there was way too much fabric in the front. Everyone else has said their pants fit just fine, so maybe it's my body. Really hated to return as they would be great pants for summer, but couldn't get past all the extra fabric.
Not For Me
I ordered these in dark stone, in my usual size small. I found the fit on these odd - the top was too large and the front gapped. I too had trouble with the zipper (didn't break, but took a few tries to get it closed. The back puckered because the waist was too large. The fabric was surprisingly heavy for cotton. I have many pairs of Susan's pants, but lately have found the fit inconsistent, even when I order the same pant in the same size in different colors. Guess it's time to reevaluate how much I continue to order - tired of paying return shipping.
Couldn't wait to get these and I was not disappointed, except that the size I usually order was too big, and everything in xs is sold out......BUT the fabric and style on these is just awesome. And I would say the price is great too, at first I thought it was a bit high, but after I got these and saw the workmanship and the fabric, I thought for sure anything similar in a dept store would be twice the price.....please restock ASAP!!!! It seems lately new things Susan introduces sell out way too fast.....
Not for me!
I ordered both the white and khaki in an XL. The material is light weight but not so much that you can see through it, They are a stylish pant but unfortunately not for me. I carry my weight in the hips and thighs and I found these to be cut a little tight and if I order up I know they will be too lose. Also the white showed my cellulite. The front detail adds a nice touch to the pany. I wish they fit but sadly they are going back.
