Rated 3 out of 5Â by Kalika Hard to classify the sizing
I am usually a 29 in pants, but since they were skinny, I ordered the 30 - something I am finding with some Free People pants, the waist is too large, and the legs too tight - I am by no means a big girl (5'7", 135 lbs) and my weight is pretty evenly distributed. So as much as I love these pants look, it is frustrating to have to pull them up all the time because the waist isn't small enough, but the legs are a little on the tight side. It is just a little frustrating. Plus the denim is a little stiffer than I'd like.

Super pretty but 1 sizing issue to address. There's almost no stretch to the fabric so if you've got a nice bum or any kind of thigh, you may have to size up and hope the waist band gap isn't too bad. If you have a good tailor they may be able to help alleviate the issue. I bought the white and just for reference, the white isn't a bright white. It does lean a little toward off white so it's not too glaring a contrast. I haven't worn them for any significant amount of time so I cannot attest to the pretty brocade pattern wearing away. I will, however, be washing them inside out I when it comes to that point.

I got these in the dark blue colour, they go great with many things as the pattern is quite subtle. They are amazing in person, the fabric is very sturdy and thick, plus it feels really nice! The only let down was that after wearing them a while, the velvet pattern starts to wear off in places, especially the knees and bum area. This is not necessarily a negative though as it just makes them look a bit more worn in.

I ordered these in size 24 in the silver and the charcoal. The length might feel more like a cropped pant if you are taller, but if you are petite, it is perfect. The waist is a little loose on me, but I manage.
Both pairs are gorgeous, the silver especially, and it can pair with so many things.
Unfortunately that is where the good points end. While the stitching and the fabric itself seem durable, the brocade began wearing off the silver pair after the first washing, particularly on the pockets, where it seems completely to have come off. I'm not sure what more I could have done. I washed them inside out, in a lingerie bag, on the gentlest cycle my washer has...maybe hand washing?
I was extremely disappointed, as I loved these pants. This is the first time I've had any problem with pants from Free People.
Were it not for this, I would have given these 5 stars.

I ordered these in my usual 26, eclipse/charcoal. For reference, I'm 5'3", 100lbs. These fit a little bit looser, especially at the thighs and waist, but not too loose. The colors look the same as in the studio shots. These seem very well made and the material is great, with the raised, flocked floral designs.

I wouldn't really call these "stretchy," (they're pretty stiff), but they're so true-to-size. I normally wear a size 27 (sometimes a 28) in FP pants, and the 27s fit me like a glove. They're a really great addition to my wardrobe to help me change it up instead of always wearing my blue or black denim skinny jeans. :)

I ordered a size up to accommodate Christmas over-indulgence! They fit just as I would expect. Already getting compliments on them so that can't be bad.

Love the look. Don't love the fabric or the fit. Got these in both the black and the silver. One leg on the silver pair is tighter than the other, and since there is absolutely no give to this fabric, this makes a big difference. There's also a lot of gapping at the top. No so for the black â the fabric is much more comfortable and the fit is perfect. Too bad because the silver is really pretty.
