This winter, I've been practically living in my Smooth Sailing Trousers from Wearing History. I'm so excited that they came out with a plus size range because there's such a lack of well fitting vintage style pants for curvy girls.
When they arrived, I slipped into them and it was like they were custom made for me! The fit was perfect and surprisingly, so was the length. I'm pretty tall at 5'7 so I usually find that pants could be a tiny bit longer but these were perfect. For those that are taller, there's a very deep hem that could be easily let out to adjust for longer lengths. Another curvy girl problem with high waisted pants is that the waist band often rolls or folds. I don't know what magic was involved in these because the waist band stays put all day, through romping with the kids, hiking around in the country or just sitting at home.
The cotton indigo denim is sturdy but soft and best of all- machine washable! They zip up the side and close with one button. I can't rave enough about how comfortable and flattering these wonderful trousers are. The front pleats completely conceal my lower belly "mom pooch" and they're smooth over the rear. They don't ride up like some high waist pants can. Definitely a great investment piece for your vintage wardrobe.
Wearing History sizing runs different than other brands, so be sure to check their various size charts for a perfect fit. My measurements are 44-35-46 so I ordered the size 36.
