I love these pants. You can literally wear them for dance, a lounge day, or even a day out. They are totally comfortable and true to sizing. I am 5'2 and 120 lbs. and a small fit just fine. However, putting on the ankles of the pants or taking them off can be a hassle due to the close knitting of the fabric.
I read the reviews and still thought I would like them....I should have listened because they are awful. I ordered the large because I like my sweatpants baggy and because I read that the calves were tight and I have large calves. They were too big at the waist and the calves were so small I could barely get them over my feet. I wear a size 6 shoe, so my feet are pretty small. As far as the cut and style, I wear this style of pants all the time, but there was either no thought put into the pattern, or no effort put into the construction. There is no tapering, they just balloon out at the knee, looking like the stretched out part when you hang a nice sweater on a hanger. I don't see this in the picture. I read the comment that the pattern has been improved. Thanks for doing that AFTER you shipped mine. I still have very little faith that you can improve much if this is what you came up with the first time. I'm upset that I have to waste the time and shipping money to send these back.
I just got this sweats, no more than a half an hour ago and I tried them on and couldn't get them on all the way. I'm 5' tall 101 lbs and have a 33" hip and got the adult small. I had to roll them up twice, which was expected because I have short legs, but I can't even get the end of the pant on my heels. The calves are way to small and I have very small calves and even worse, the right side's calf opening is smaller than the left! I might have to cut out the elastic at the bottom and stretch them out just to get them fully on... they are currently just around my arch and cutting the circulation out of my toes!
I really wanted to like these. I love how comfortable they are. But as soon as I got them, they already had a hole I the back, due to the stitching coming undone. I thought, ok, annoying, but these are comfy, so I can stitch them myself. Turns out I'm a better seamstress than the manufacturers, because I've only washed these pants once, and stitching has just been unraveling like crazy all over the pants, while the one spot that I stitched have remained perfectly intact. Really? I am not going to resew this entire pair of pants. That's ridiculous. I paid over $30 for pants that are falling apart all over the place.
Maybe I got a bad pair, who knows. But buy with your own risk.
I reallllly want to like these. They're super cute on the models, so i ordered two in medium.
Let me preface this by saying, i'm a small girl. I'm athletic, but I'm thin. In most jeans, I wear a size 2-4.
However, in these sweatpants, the calves are SOO tight. Almost unbearably so. And i sized UP, so i don't even want to know what the small is like.
My calves are muscular, but not monstrous. While i expected the calves to be tighter (because they are Harem pants), they almost restrict bloodflow. I'm really hoping they'll stretch out with wear.

I've been looking through the product reviews for these Harem sweatpants but still can't figure out if the sizing will be too small for me. I'm about 5'7" and wear about a size 12 with waist 32" so with something baggy like this, I'd usually go for a large. But elsewhere I saw that for Natalie brand I would be an XL, and I know some earlier customers had a lot of concern about the fitted calf on these pants. Are these pants even an option for me because I only see L listed here, and it sounds like they might be running too small for me.
The issue with the fit around the lower leg has been fixed, however we do receive feedback overall that this pants runs a bit small. The waist measurement unstretched for the size L, which is the largest size available in this item, is 30 inches.

I'm pretty short so my inseam in only 25 inches, but my waist is about 28 inches, and I heard that dds runs small, so which size should I get?
Our measurements are based on girth for your height. Sounds like you should be a large with the waist at 28-30" for Natalie brand. Girth on a large would be 61"-63". How you would measure your girth is to start at the top of your shoulder, go down through the front of your legs and connect to the starting point. This would determine the length/ size you would need. - DDS Customer Service (01/21/2013)
