Women's Fit 2 Portico Side-zip Indigo Ankle Pants
A classier alternative to jeans.
The look is sleek but not quite form-fitting, which makes them very comfortable. They appear to be a polished denim fabric that remains smooth and wrinkle-free when dried gently and hung up ever-so-slightly damp. They are light weight--good for warmer weather, but also wearable in cold weather under boots. (They work great with boots because they aren't bulky.) I have them in a 10, and I am 5'7" and 128 lbs. Some people my size would prefer an 8--just depends upon whether you want more or less "wiggle room."

I am Comfortable
I have flexibility with these pants. They aren't constricting, I don't need a belt and I am comfortable without pockets. I wore this with Women's Supima Short Sleeve Print Sweater in the Caspian Blue Leopard and loafers for work. I would order another in black and gray. It fit perfect from waist to ankle. My height is 4' 11" and I wear a size 12. I am a Happy Go Lady, right about now.

Not for me
The petite size was still too long in the rise for me. The fabric was very light and it just didn't lay well--too many creases and wrinkles. Nothing major wrong with them but they were not flattering on my figure.

Exceeded My Expectations!
These are great pants. Love the bit of stretch. The fit is very flattering. The denim isn't too heavy which is good because I intend to wear these pants with boots. My husband loves them on me, too! One minor complaint is that the closure at the waist is a bit difficult to manage. I wish that there was a button there instead. That's why I gave them 4 boats. I have been wearing these all day. They have been very comfortable. I bought a 12P, weigh 150 lbs.

I was hesitant when I read another reviewer's experience with this item as I am curvy and the person indicated this cut was not particularly flattering on a curvy frame. I ordered one size up and they fit very nicely. I like that they can be paired with flats or heels and that the sheen and crease elevate their appearance. I'm 5'6" and approx. 160lbs with broad shoulders, a short torso and wide hips.

These are great! I wear them all the time!
I wear these all the time, because they work well as jeans or slightly nicer pants! I wish they had them in regular length at the time I bought them; but the petites work fine as well, since I'm only 5'2". It'd be nice if the waist was just a little smaller in the back and if the back pockets were be real instead of faux (I know it warned they were!)

I love these pants!
I'm so totally over the really low jeans. They actually give me a spare tire and are so uncomfortable. I saw these online and ordered an 8 and a 10. Eight is my regular size right now, as I gained 5 lbs this summer. The 8 fit fine, but I kept the 10 too. There wasn't that much difference, but there is a little bit more room in case of shrinkage. I did wash the 8's once and they came out fine and didn't shrink. I am also sick of the zipper on the front of jeans sticking out and ruining the look of my tops. I love the clean lines of these pants. I wore them all day today and there was no bagging. They are long enough on me (I'm 5'3"), that I can wear them with flats or heels. Please bring these in off white, black and other colors. Make them exactly the same, please. They are so cute and really a great alternative "grown up" jean look for women who are sick of the teen styles that swamp the retail establishments. I consider myself stylish, but also like sophistication rather than just emulating teenage girl styles. For reference - I am small but curvy and I think these do look good on curvy figures.

SOOOOOO CUTE and COMFORTABLE!
I usually wear a size 8 in pants, but I sized up, with a 10, for denim, and I'm glad I did. The fit was perfect! The absence of buttons and pockets, plus the dark color are very slimming. The bit of stretch makes them so comfortable. They can be casual or dressy, depending on your shoes and accessories. Very versatile!

Didn't work for me....
The web site pics don't show the crease running down the center of the legs. When I put the pants on it looked like they had been ironed. I don't like the look of creased jeans...seems a little strange to me. I wasn't sure if it would come out in the wash. They looked OK from the front but without regular back pockets these gave my butt the dreaded "Mom jean" look ....I'd have to wear a long shirt with them to feel comfortable. I returned them and bought Fit 1 slim ankle instead...much better if you are looking for more of a "jeans" look than "pants".

Sizing all wrong, Poorly placed fastener
After double and triple checking my measurements against both the size charts AND the item dimensions, I ordered both the 16P and 18P. They were so large that they slipped right up over my hips with the zipper and fastener closed. They seemed promising, however, so I returned them and got both 12P and 14P. That is when I discovered that I could not manage the fastener! It is placed on the left side and I cannot use my (perfectly functional) left hand well enough to manipulate it with just that hand. My right hand simply won't reach far enough around my body to fasten the pants. I will admit to being a bit overweight (but not obese) and rather large-breasted (but not huge). (My measurements are 44" - 38" - 38;" I am 5'3" and weigh 150.) The pants would not have been a good fit, regardless - too big through hips and thighs.
