This isn't to say I haven't owned work trousers before, I have. I've had black ones mainly as I could never find them in another colour.
And they have fitted badly. Or were made from awful polyster or weird stretchy fabric. Too baggy on the hips, but tight on the waist, or just too loose all over. Too short as they only came in one length when legs come in all different lengths... you get the problem.
But when I saw these I thought perhaps at last I could have what I have always wanted: well fitting, well made taupe trousers for work.
Simply Be were kind enough to allow me to review them, and another item that I will post about soon.
These trousers come in different lengths (listen up other plus size retailers!) and they come with a belt. This isn't completely unheard of, but the shocking thing is IT FITS. Sorry for shouting, but how many times have we bought plus sized items with belts that would only fit a size 12???
They have an elastic waist, which to be honest I've never been that keen on as I don't want it to be obvious that I'm wearing elastic, but on these it looks fine when being worn.
And the colour? It's brilliant, it looks good with black, and I'll wear it with pastels in summer. Sorry to gush, but these fit well, have lovely soft material and are the perfect length. Delighted and off to buy them in black.
