Susan Graver Essentials Lustra Knit Regular Skinny Pants
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!
These pants are made of such a cheap and sleazy material and don't hang well. They are so thin and a real disappointment. Should have taken heed of some of the other reviews. I usually have good luck with Susan Graver but this was a real "bust".
I was very disappointed in these pants. They were too thin and shiny. The sizing was accurate but the look was not flattering.
I'm delighted! I have trouble with pants, particularly pants/slacks/jeans on QVC. I carry all my weight in my belly and have straight hips and not much backside. Almost every pant I've purchased at QVC including jeans, have huge seats...and again, I don't. Matching what my tummy needs without a matching hip or butt is not easy. These arrived and I tried them on...YAY! They do not bag in the back! They are not huge in the leg! They DO allow for my tummy! I usually take a medium or large with QVC clothes so I went with medium. I might have even gone to small but the medium fit well enough. The legs and seat are perfect...just have a bit of room in the tummy. The length is long for me as I'm only 5 foot one but I knew that going in. I bought them for heels. I will order petites for flats in this same style. Best of all, hubby looked at them and said "you look skinny" and he certainly didn't know that's what they are called. Yay!
I love Susan's clothes but these were just too long in the rise for me. Had to fold over the waist twice. They are very comfortable and I love the slimmer leg. A little pricey for such a plain and simple pant.
Nice pants but not for me
I really wanted these to fit, but they just don't go with my body type. Color & fabric very nice.
