Susan Graver Essentials Lustra Knit Petite Skinny Pants
Received today and was surprised how pretty the plum color was. I am a size 20 waist and a 16 hip and the 1X fit fine. Snug but not tight. Waste band seems nice - Doesn't roll down on a large stomach person. Length is slightly longer than usual for a petite. The other colors are not my style. Want to see navy, white and dark taupe.

I love, love the material of these pants I have ONLY one pair because the length of the rise comes just below my bust well above my waist and I'm definitely not short waist-ed. It is very uncomfortable to wear. The legs on a petite 2x are definitely not skinny pant either. Please make these truly petite fit (the rise and skinnier pant leg) and I'd gladly buy many more.
Tried both lengths
I have a lot of Susan's clothes, but sometimes it doesn't work for me, this is the case with these pants. First not skinny on the legs, the average was too long and the petite was too short. And the material was way to shinny .
Love the pants. Order them in size large but had to return them. I sized down to a medium and they fit perfectly. I liked them so much I ordered 2 pair.
Practical, Slimming and Sleek
I got these pants "as is" and would pay full price for more pairs. I usually wear a small, but only an XS was available as is, so I tried a black XS petite. They fit and maybe look even better than if I had the S. They're not tight, but they do make me look taller and slimmer. I never get compliments, but I got a compliment when I was wearing these recently.
I'd like to see them in a true dark navy (darker than the navy in the Lustra Knit ankle pants), off white, charcoal, and a beautiful buttery beige.
Please design new colors!
These are truly "skinny pants" and are quite wonderful. Ms. Graver's reputation as a pant designer is well deserved. However, the colors are truly horrendous. Where are navy, charcoal, taupe, winter white and other traditional neutrals?! I am a classic dresser and have to cull through Ms. Graver's collection to find the few pieces that fit my style. I do find the effort worthwhile, but tend only to buy black because the color selections are not very subtle or designer-like. I do love these pants as they travel well and are very flattering, however, I would appreciate more attention paid to the selection of the color palette. Thank you.
Maybe below the knees is "skinny" but the top hip/upper thigh area is NOT. Love the material, but not proportioned for a 5' 1" 145lb woman around the hip area and upper thighs. Will try downsizing one size to see if that helps.
I am 5 ft and these pants are very nice, but I always have to roll the waist down in order
to wear them. Why does Susan say she can fit pants so well? I will keep them but
wish they did not have so much length in the rise. Other petite ladies do not mention
Just that they are to long. The only reason I can take the length is to do the fold down at the waist. If This was not a problem to me I would give them a 4 star.
The perfect pant ;)
I am a school psychologist and I love these pants for work. They don't wrinkle and are heavier than the liquid knit I have. I ordered the red but need to size done from an xsmall to an xx-small (they run big). Otherwise I am happy with them and just ordered the brown. Thanks Susan from making me look professional yet I am comfortable all day!
I have two pairs of these wonderfully fitting pants and I just went back and ordered three more. They fit my 5'3" body perfectly. I wear petite xs and they are PERFECT!! Great pants. Can't say enough about them.
These were awful, awful, awful. i bought the petite large, which is what I always buy in QVC. They were not only baggy and droopy and too big, they were too long! There is nothing skinny about these pants. Legs are wide and baggy. They can't be the same pants Susan Graver wore on QVC when she was selling them. So disappointed but should have known better. Back they went.
These pants are not skinny pants. They are more of a straight leg. I am 5 feet tall and I cannot wear high heels so I west ballet flats most of the time. These pants are way too long. I guess if you are my height and wear 4 inch heels, it would work.
