Isnt velvet abit thick?

this is the third one.

I'd order both or all and keep the ones which fit best tbh...Boden fit can vary from style to style so much that you need to try them..

Ordering trousers from Boden is like playing roulette for me: they can sometimes be a fantastic fit but usually not.

Johnnie has never made a trouser that fits or flatters me. I am a 14, 5'8" and curvy.
