ULTIMATE DOUBLE WEAVE BARELY BOOT COLUMNIST PANT
Terrible, Awkward Fit
It seems like the majority of women that are writing reviews here are size 4 or smaller. So here's some input from a more averaged sized lady, I'm 5'10 and either an 8 or 10 depending on brand, cut, and the usual weight ups and downs. I bike regularly and have curvy thighs and muscular calves and am always on a quest for slim fitting straight leg pants. The 10 fit perfectly around the waist and butt, but they were stretched tight across my thighs bunched awkwardly just above and around my knees and then fell loosely to my ankle. The length was great, not verging on too short like most pants. The overall fit looked terrible, the Columnist pants are not cut for women with fuller thighs.

Can't say enough about these pants.
Being 5'8 and slender through the hips and legs, I've always struggled to find a pair of dress pants that flatters everything. Most are proportioned for women with a narrower waist and larger hips/thighs, which certainly doesn't do anything for me. For those of you that don't have much curve, these pants (the columnist cut in general) make you look like you do. They fit like an absolute dream! I now own 4 different pairs of the barely boot cut columnists. Tall and slender women out there - stop stressing about finding a pant that will fit, this is it! All columnist. I actually wear a size smaller in these pants than usual - but with a regular length.

I usually buy size 2R in Express pants, but was swayed by some reviews to order the 2L to fit my 5'9", 120lb relatively proportional frame. I usually wear a 3" heal with pants, so I did not want the pants to be too short. I was disappointed that the pants were way too long. I will be returning them for my usual 2R!

I spent an entire day looking around the mall for decent black pants that had belt loops and weren't jeggings. When I found these, I was super unhappy to pay the price since they were for work. What a mistake -- I'm going back and buying 2 more since Express is now having a sale. These are great, super comfortable and very sturdy. I work outside and I'm constantly on the move, and these are holding up even though I treat them poorly. Definitely buy them!
