Good quality Harem Pants (like the one's from Hush) - where can I get some...?
Title says it really. Had a look on the Hush site, fell in love with these but they are sold out (and not in the sale - )
Does anyone know of any other places which do nice, good quality, non droopy arsed (realise they have a bit of droop, but I don't want one's that make me look to have a full nappy!) harems...? Or not harems, but similar (like the Toast 'churindars' which I can't find a link to!)
OOOh, that was quick! Like the look of both of those - thanks! I don't like jeans, you see, and these are also better for post run etc. (Feel like I need to justify, weirdly, as may harem haters out there!!)
Will have a trip to a New Look and see what they are like on. I have quite muscly legs at the front from cycling and some loose jersey styles cling in the wrong places (I found this with the Top Shop one's.) Agree about spending a lot on something like that, but if they look good and last well I don't mind so will explore more and get trying on!
I've tried those New Look ones on and they were non too flattering - the material was incredibly thin and kindly showed my cellulitey backside off a treat ! Does anyone else have any suggestions - everywhere I look its all new autumn season which doesn't help those of us who have only just realised its summer and are only just getting around to doing their holiday shopping ..
I did get some reasonable cropped ones from Next last month, quite thick and not too droopy at the arse. They've changed to Autumn collection but have these? www.next.co.uk/x48180s2#741178x48 I really liked the Hush ones too.
Email Hush and ask to be put on a waiting list. I did this for the knee length ones and got an email by reply less than a day later offering me a pair. TBH, Hush is definitely worth the money. I use mine for yoga (and often end up wearing them all day) and they never bag or sag. I also have a pair of their full length trousers in the same fabric from 2 winters ago and they have lasted beautifully.
They're going back, maybe I didn't read the ad properly but they're a see through very thin material. Not the thicker, slightly different leggings I was expecting. I bought something similar in the River Island sale a few weeks back. Which were a better shape for me + material slightly more stretchy. Perfect for the trip between tent and pool.
I did find some reasonable 3/4 length Harems in M&S of all places, in their new season beach / holiday section. They're thick and hang well on me. More baggy beach trousers, rather than crotch flopping around at the knees, then tight. We have a 3 week European road trip ahead of us, they'll come in useful for light weight travel trousers.
