Susan Graver Stretch Cotton Sateen Side Zip Crop Pants
These pants are so comfortable with the side zipper and the elastic waist. I will be buying them again.
Measurements not correct!
I have no problem with the "wrinkle factor" mentioned in the other reviews. I like a sateen fabric. I do have a problem with the inseam measurement. for these pants not being as stated on the "click here" chart. I do not like shorter capri length pants, which is why I ordered cropped pants. The inseam is supposed to be 23 inches for these cropped pants. When I tried them on, the length seemed short. I measured the inseam and it was barely 22 inches. For me, the shorter inseam is not desirable. The return shipping is very frustrating when the problem is one of inaccurate information being given, or a quality control issue. I am returning them because they are not worth the price when the measurements are not correct.
RETURNING CROP PANTS
I wanted to like these crop pants. They looked good on Susan on the air. But the material wrinkles easily. And the fit is not good - the legs are baggy and the waist is snug. This is my third try with pants from Susan. I'll need a really good reason to try again.
Wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles!
These may be all right if you stay standing, but if you sit, they will wrinkle terribly and get all "bagged out". Save yourself the time and expense of returning them and forget about ordering these. Sorry SG -- you just need to get a better quality of cotton sateen. I love that fabric in the warm weather, but these crops, and your other sateen crops/capris/slacks, all have the same flaws - wrinkles, wrinkles wrinkes!
This was my first Susan Graver pants. They fit nicely, but I found the fabric troubling. It was nice and shiny like sateen should be, but after wearing them for half an hour the pants got deep creases that didn't go away. I didn't want to look like that all day, so back they go. I have to say, in case anyone from quality control reads this stuff, that over the past couple of years I have noticed the quality of QVC fabric has continued to plummet and I continue to return things. Your prices haven't gone down though. As a result I buy about half as much as I used to from QVC.
THE BEST LINE
You cannot get wrong with any clothing of SUSAN GRAVER's line. This is my second pair I purchased, I have them in two colors and surely, I shall enjoy those pants with many other SG items on my long visit to Greece this summer.
QVC should be proud having Miss SUSAN GRAVER!
WONDERFUL CROP PANTS! THEY LOOK SHARP CASUAL OR CAN DRESS UP. LOVE THE SLIT IN BACK OF LEG, AND I DO TURN UP FOR A CUFF ON OCCASION! THE SOFT SHEEN IS VERY FRESH. I WASH AND DRY ON DELICATE, COLD AND THEY COME OUT PERFECT. SUGGESTION...PURCHASE IN 2 SIZES...ONE MORE FITTED AND THE OTHER MORE RELAXED. CHOOSE WHICH FIT YOU WANT DEPENDING ON YOUR TOP AND THE OCCASION, WORKS FOR ME...TRY IT! ;D
Love these pants except.....
The side zipper is the problem. I actually don't even need to zip and unzip these pants, I can just slip them on. The zipper does not zip completely up therefore scratching my side. Other than that, these are the most wonderful pants. They wash well, no ironing required, the material is soft and luxurious and they stretch. Very nice pants....except the zipper!
Wow, wonderful, impressive, great, super!!!!!
I've been a Susan Graver fan for years. She is the only designer who understands that not all women just have problem areas in the hips and tummies. My weight is mostly in my thighs right above my knees. Sometimes I feel like "the wicked witch of the North" and all of the fat has melted down to my knees. All of Susan's pants (I especially like her liquid knits) help hide this area for me. However, these particular capris are outstanding and hide my problem area perfectly. Additionally, the fabric has just enough sheen they can be dressy or casual dependent on what you want. The material is light weight but has substance and is not clingy. I have purchased four different colors. Size and cut of the pants is consistent. They wash well, cold water and just hang to dry. I have tried ironing and not ironing. It really doesn't make any difference because once you put them on they stretch to conform with your body and after a few minutes the wrinkles have disappeared. For me there is no problem with the side zipper or hook and eye because the waist has a stretch band and you can just pull them on without even using the zipper. They are so comfortable even if you've gone "dressy" for the day they feel like a favorite pair of pajama bottoms.
Susan, don't ever stop making these capris. I feel as if they were made just for me and I almost don't want to even mention some suggestions I would make. But I will (selfishly) anyway. 1) Please consider making them in petite (all sizes). I'm not a tiny girl, just have bigger thighs than hips/tummy. The length of these capris come to just above my ankle bone - more like high water pants; 2) consider using more subtle colors eg. olive, chocolate, wine, mustard yellow, etc. I did miss out on the white/black :( but I will continue to look for when they come back in stock. I just can't get enough. I wear these capris to my office and can wear anything I want, but I still need to look professional. The coral is a beautiful summer color. But really too bright to wear to work (thought I was going on a cruise) and had to tone down the pants with a white summer sweater. Still looked good but I had purchased the liquid knit darker coral gathered neck top to go with them, tried it with the pants (oh, my). I've ordered yellow (hope they are less bright) but adore these pants so much I'll take what I can get. I'm especiaIly happy to see them at a reduced price. I know the colors I suggested are not necessarily summer colors; but these pants are so classy I'd like to be able to wear them every day. I'm in the South and as I am sure you know, it gets hot, humid and sticky down here. These capris hold up well and make me look crisp and cool (heat? what heat?) We do have long periods of warm weather and these pants are perfect. I am absolutely enthralled with these capris!!!!! Thanks Susan for such great design.
Re: the QVC question below (what would I recommend to others) Susan Graver liquid knit pull on petite pants; but as to these capris - there is no comparison - they are in a class unto themselves.
Great All Around Pant
This pant can be worn dressy or casual. I have worn it to church, work and bar-b-ques. I wear it dressy with Isaac's sweater and casual with a tee. It is not tight fitting - I agree but I do not like tight fitting - especially in the summer. It looks very polished and lady like. The colors are fantastic. I have it in the yellow and am coming back for more colors.
The yellow matches perfectly to Isaac's sweater below in the yellow / green floral.
LOVE the fabric!!!!!
These pants are not onlycolorful and comfortable, the fabric has the prettiest sheen and feels wonderful to the touch. I'm going to be ordering another pair now that I know how great they are for summer wear. Get a pair! You won't be sorry!
Not For Me
Baggy in the butt, hard to zip on the side, going back. Sorry Susan, I buy a lot from you but these are not for me.
