I tried the bistro crops last year (the cotton ones, not the new wool ones) and the fit was rubbish on me - baggy knees, odd length and flarey round the ankles like I was wearing trousers too short for me...but for some reason I ordered the Petite version this season, and they fit PERFECTLY. They are literally my perfect Audrey Hepburn trousers. I'm 5'5", so not technically petite, but they're about the same length on me as they are on the model, so not too short. And I don't have skinny thighs or a particularly small bum, so no idea why the petites fit better.
Now I have to decide whether to get another colour (just got the black ones for now...)
Just thought I'd mention it in case anyone had a similar problem to me with the regular length ones
I am evangelical about these trousers. I have three pairs as I really struggle to find trousers that fit so well and decided to indulge (also, I had a 20pc off code at the time). I'm 5 7 and wear the long length as I wanted them ankle grazer length. Love them
Hmmmm I am waiting for mine as part of a recent exchange.
I returned the cotton ones last last season- odd fit. They weren't quite right around the 'rise' for some reason and the bum was a bit tight, but not tight enough to size up.
I'm short so am hoping they will be 7/8th length on me and can wear with ankle boots because I can't stand shoes and cold ankles in cold weather and I don't work in an office so they will purely be for 'play wear'.
I am feeling evangelical about them right now too Gilly It's taken forever to find a pair of black cropped slim leg trousers that fit - I've tried so many pairs but they're always too tight on the thighs and too big on the waist. The bistro crops seem to be cut for people with thighs and bums and waists and stuff
The question is do I need the dark navy ones or the slate ones now? I'm tempted by the navy but I've had a pair of navy trousers before and they felt a bit like a nurse's uniform on for some reason, even though I loved them on the hanger.
