I am always on the hunt for comfortable work pants that are flattering to my figure. I love the color, the cut and style are cute and flattering. Unfortunately, these fell short for me for a few reasons.
First of all, size wise these fit as expected and are flattering my to curves. I wear size 8 pants normally and the 8 fit good, except, there is no stretch in the waist band, which I would really expect in a pair of pants with no zipper/button. There is almost no give in the waistband, so it makes it awkward when pulling on over the hips.
Second, the material is pretty scratchy. The picture looks like it would be a softer material but it's really more of a stiff polyester.
And finally, this is more an issue I have with my shorter stature (5'5") these pants are too long. I would need to get them altered, which, with pants at this price, not really worth it.
Again, cute pants, flattering cut...but the comfort just wasn't there for me.

Good fit, but you definitely need an iron.
I am between a 10 and 12, and the picture displayed by another customer who was happy with the fit led me to order the larger size. I like the fit just a little looser than pictured. I'm glad I did; it fits smoothly with no creases. However, I was very disappointed in the laundry care. They quite naturally came creased from shipping, so I read the care instructions right away. Then I learned that they needed to be washed in cold, hung to dry, and needed to be ironed. I thought maybe I could get away with not using an iron; I don't even own one. But unfortunately, they are so terribly wrinkled after washing them, that I broke down and just now ordered a travel iron.
Even though I was disappointed that I had to order and use an iron, I wore them to work today and have to admit that they are very comfortable and survived the washing machine. After having them on all day, I do not notice them having terrible creases. So, if ironing these pants is not a hardship for you, then I do recommend them. Really, the only reason now that I do not give them 5 stars is because ironing is difficult for me anymore; I really hoped I could get away without having to use one...but I do like the way they fit.

Poor quality. Material is even fraying at the belt loops as well as the crotch. Washed about 8 times. Too late to return and they are too worn out to wear again. Very disappointed. On a positive note, they fit and look great until the elastic starts to fray.

Excellent material, gorgeous fit, perfect length, great for work!
I am 5'4", 120 lbs, completely average by standards, and have a slightly athletic build in my legs (thighs) and torso (arms and back). Working in a professional environment, I was seeking dress pants in a specific style with a variety of colors so my outfits would be consistent, all without breaking the bank. This product met and exceeded my expectations. I have purchased every color and experimented with size 6 and size 8, as well as the "boot cut" line and the "barely boot cut" line by this 'brand'. The color is true to the pictures. What I found, is that with my height, weight, and build, the barely boot cut is more flattering and fits better, as we'll as with 3" heels. The pants do shrink slightly but not as much as I expected; thus, an 8 was comfortable in the waist but just slightly too baggy in the back thighs and butt area as well as being moderately more baggy and long in the calf area. A size 6 in either style was perfect; although I am more partial to the barely boot cut style, which is not close to being skinny pants but rather a more 'true' boot cut. Another great feature is these do not require ironing due to the thicker, stretchy material unlike common/usual work slacks for women. When ordering the light gray in boot cut, I was sent a charcoal in their dress pants line; after sending back and reordering, I was sent the same charcoal pants, a completely different style and material. I just ended up ordering the light gray in the barely boot cut style and had no issues. This was the only mishap with brand/seller I have experienced and have every pair. Feel free to ask me any questions or request pictures. I look taller, slimmer, more feminine, and feel more confident and professional wearing these.

After washing in cool water and cool dryer
I 5'8" 165 lbs, 60+ years old, ordinarily wear a size 12 pant with 31 inch inseam. Out of the package, these pants were too small in size 12, so I ordered size 14 instead. Out of the package, size 14 fit just a little too big and about an inch too long. After washing, they are a match for size 12 and length shrank to about 31" . Recommendation: buy one size larger than your typical size and one inch longer inseam than typical. After washing in cool water and cool dryer, they should fit like a size 12, 31 inch inseam pant.
Otherwise, love the fit. Mid rise that is truly mid (not something between low and mid rise), and don't sag in the butt and don't balloon out at the thighs. Slightly stretch material works for comfort and fit, has some body to the material even after washing, and length is great for those of us on the taller, longer legged side. My only complaint is that I ordered 4 pair and they are all different lengths (two inches different between them).

If your thighs touch...Do NOT buy
I bought a pair in early April 2017. By the end of April the fabric between the legs showed worn out (See picture). I was disappointed because I really like the comfort and the flexibility of these pants but I can not afford to buy a new pair every month.
I work in the restaurant business, I walk around all the time 10,000+ steps at work alone. But these pants couldn't keep up with this life style.
Good pants, sad they aren't durable for thigh touching people.

Best dress pants for the price
I love Rekucci pants! I have six pair now and keep adding more. Great colors (pictures are accurate and colors are bright and vibrant). Nice price. Love the pull-on aspect as well. They seem to be a bit small, but have a nice slim fit. The waist doesn't have much give, so don't expect these to be stretchy like yoga or maternity pants. That's nice though, because they don't sag. And unlike dress pants with buttons/zippers, there is no bulge or puckering. I can wear a form fitting shirt that goes over the waist without having a bump under the shirt. The seam along the legs turns sometimes, so these are not a tailored pant, really. They sit kind of awkward sometimes because of the way the seams lay, but the price is so nice that it doesn't matter. I get compliments on them all the time. I normally wear black dress pants and black shirts or blazers. So having interesting colored pants is a nice way for me to add a little spice to my conservative wardrobe without being over the top.
The material makes them ideal for laundering at home without fading or distress over time. I often wipe spills off with a towel. I wash and dry with all my other clothes (warm, normal dry, etc). I don't like work clothes that I need to fuss with extra laundry loads and whatnot. These are great. I have one pair that I have had for almost two years now and they still look new after repeated wear and washing.
I prefer the "Barely Bootcut" style, but they ankle opening is still a little wide for my preference. They are slightly long pants, so I wear them with heels otherwise they bunch up a bit on my shoes, which isn't the case with most "regular" dress pants for me. (I am 5'8", 135 pounds. National brands size 6/8, Medium). I order the Size 8 from Rekucci because they shrink slightly in the wash (high heat dryer, etc), and because the waist is snug, I don't want to squeeze into them. They are the best work dress pants I have found and the price is great. I have worn them out socially with a casual top and sneakers too. I love the colors and kind of want to try the capris and whatnot.

Great fit. Very comfortable. Wrinkles badly.
The pants are extremely comfortable and the fit of them is fantastic, however they are very long straight out of the pack. I washed them in hot and dried in hot and they went from a 34" inseam to 31.5". That was fine with me, because that's my true inseam. I am so glad I read previous reviews because I was about to have the pants hemmed and they would have been far too short after washing. Now for the bad part...the reason these pants don't get 5 a higher rating with me is because they wrinkle very badly. After I washed and dried the pants, I spent another 20 minutes ironing them. I was hoping I would get away with being able to throw them in the washer/dryer and wear with no effort. That was not the case.

I'm chubby and short, I find it hard to find pants that fit especially around my hips and I really liked that these fit very well. The length was also perfect , I'm 5 "2" and they didn't drop whatsoever.

Fit and appearance are great
I am chubby and finding pants that fit, are comfortable and look good is really hard. I hate pockets as they always stick out and look bad. These pants fit great. Even when you move around, sit down, (I did squats to see if they would pull up or down) they stay in place, they don't pull in awkward places and they look great. I would love it if they would have the larger sizes in the smaller length, but I am used to hemming everything.
