Boden wool crop bistro trousers - do they stretch/bag?

Boring question - never normally buy Boden for me but these looked good for work. They have arrived and fit perfectly out of the box but do they bag or stretch by either the end of the day or after months of wear?

I bought some of the Bistro trousers last year (not the crop version) in a funny colour that was supposed to be camel but wasn't. I loved them when I tried them on, so kept them. Then I wore them to work once and they were hideous!!! Went really baggy and loose and added about 10lbs to my arse. So I phoned them up and told them and they told me to send them back and refunded me asap. Great service. I have actually ordered a navy pair this year, but they haven't arrived yet and I'm hoping that these ones are different.

Crazy was it the wool version! or the cotton version, that stretched?

Sorry Belinda - not sure but I think they were cotton. It didn't mention wool in the title, so I suppose it must have been cotton. In which case they have no relevance to the OP as she's asking about the wool crop... oops, sorry!!

I got a wool petite pair for work last month; really warm and snuggly, but the bum and thighs have definitely stretched. They look fine when I’ve got heels on, but a bit dumpy otherwise! Having said that I would get another non-cropped pair if they extended the range.
