Susan Graver Essentials Lustra Knit Regular Skinny Pants
Didn't Try on soon enough
Got these in Ivy Green & Teal. The colors are great, but they are a little large. I always order SG pants in XS and they usually fit, except for the length. Although I can never know what the length will be, I know that the regular will always be too long and the petite always be too short, so I order regular. They can be hemmed, but not made longer. I've never worn them because I can't find any tops to wear with them. I wish Susan would make tops and cardigans to match her pants. I will stick with black, brown, and navy. I want olive, but only if I can buy matching tops and/or cardigans.
I have these in every color already and have recently lost weight. They are so good that I am on my second "go-round" re-ordering in every color in my new size. They are just the most wonderful slacks. Great for the office or dress up. Such a good weight of material and so flattering. I wish Susan would make these in some summer colors - corals, greens or a light grey!! The wheat color is multi-seasonal, but this fabric would be wonderful in a true white, as it would be opaque. Highly recommended. Notes: This pant has a higher waist, so don't expect it to hit below or at the navel. Also, through experience I have discovered my SG size is always one size down from other designers, so that is what I order and that size is consistent across the brand - for me.
I ordered in my regular Susan Graver size and these pants were so tight and showed every little bulge in thighs, hips and butt. During the presentation Susan and the hostess kept emphasizing you don't need to be skinny to wear these skinny pants. I believe you do!
I own many of Susan's pants and could wear them right out of the bag, all regular length. But now EVERY PAIR OF PANTS OF HER PANTS ARE TOO LONG! I cannot shorten them because of the arthritis so I must send them back. What happened? Why are they all too long now?
I'm not going to order Short because just my luck they'll be too short for me.
PLEASE SUSAN CHECK THE LENGTHS. PLEASE QVC QUALITY CONTROL, MAKE SURE SUSAN'S PANT LENGTHS ARE CONSISTANT WITH YOUR GUIDELINES.IT'S NOT FAIR THAT WE HAVE TO PAY SHIPPING TWICE.
TOO LONG !
I am a Graver fan and have quite a few of Susan's items, including pants. I ordered both the black and the brown. I thought they would be good basic slacks I could wear with most of my tops.
As with most of Susan's pants, the regular length is TOO long. I'm 5' 7"...and the regular in these is about 3" too long on me. I can stand slacks a little bit long, but not this much...they drag the ground when I'm wearing flats. (No, I don't have short legs.) I also found these pants uncharacteristically clingy in the body. I'm a plus and normally have no trouble ordering my regular size. These are tight...not uncomfortably so... but certainly not flattering.
I also find the fabric odd and, I think, cheap looking-- like1970's polyester almost.
These are going back.
I love these pants. The fabric is wonderful and easy-care. I ordered an XS based on the specific measurements in black and garnet red. I am not one for orangey-hot red pants and Susan's garnet red is a beautiful color cross between cherry red and cranberry....just beautiful.....first pair of red pants I have ever owned, by the way! I normally wear a small, but know that Susan's pants always run large in the hips, and her tops wider on the bottom than I can wear, having a more "average" hip measurement. Thus, the XS fits great in the hips on me, and just a little snug in the waist. That, though, will encourage me to trim off some of the belly stuff!
I would love to see these same pants made with elastic just in the back with a smooth, non-elastic front. I would then give these pants a 10 STAR RATING!
Very good fit
I have been a SG fan since the beginning with SG Sport, the original Peachskin, etc. I have her other Lustra Knit pants and was reluctant to try these thinking they might be too tight. I found them true to size and they really do make me look good in a size small. I am 5'4" they fit closer to the body, but are not leggings, you have room to move. At my age, I like to be stylish, but leggings are not the look I am going for. These slim pants work well with my longer tops and or layered with a vest. I decided to give them 4 stars due to how they were packaged.
Love these pants
I love these pants . I do have to wear the blouse with the vest with then and they look so nice . I am proud of them. I have the black with the black blouse and vert and I look real nice in it and I ordered 2 more pants and blouses with the vests. thank you Susan
SAM YOU MADE THE PANTS TOO LONG
That is from an old song. Sue you made the pants too long. I wear a regular length and this is more like a tall for an over six footer.
Do love the material and the way they look on me so I am opting to have them shortened and not returning.
You ladies that are regular might have to get in the Petite.
Fabric, style great~~~~FIT (not so good)
I am a huge SG fan and have a closet full of things I wear and buy every day. However, having said this, I NEVER, have success with SG pants! I am well aware of SG history and expertise as a pants designer from her early days. But, the RISE IS TOO LONG on each and every pair I Get! I have to send every pair of pants back and I do not understand!!! She is right on with any and all fashions except pants never work for me--So, back go these and the petite version of same as I thought perhaps a petite cut would be better (I am 5'5")--they did not. So, if the rise is not an issue with you, enjoy. But I feel to spend almost $50 (incl. s/H) to be told to "Roll up the waistband once to bring it up" is not something a customer should have to do to get a pair of pants to fit from an "expert" pant designer. I love SG, all her products, except pants.
Flattering and comfortable
Everything Susan says about these pants is exactly what I have experienced. I have 4 pair of these pants (soon to be more) and the sizing is consistent, they all fit the same. These are the first pants I have purchased from Susan. I normally wear a medium but for this pant, because of the measurements provided I purchased a small and it fits perfect.
One of Susan's best!
I have these pants in navy & black. I usually wear size small (though I do have a tummy, these are very forgiving) & these are true to size for me. The fit is very flattering. They wash like a dream & are some of the best traveling pants ever! They can be dressed up or down & they work in both hot & cool weather. Mine never wrinkle, even when rolled up in a suitcase for an overseas flight. I cannot say enough good things about them! I wish Susan would bring back her lustra knit jackets so I could get a couple more of those too!
