Rated 4 out of 5 by 123abc Barbara Hulanicki Ponte Trousers
Not really sure what to make of this pair of trousers to be honest, as they were not what I expected. The ponte fabric is nice enough, and pretty much what I expected it to be, but the cut and fit was a little 'off' for a Hulanicki design. The waistband reminded me of maternity wear as it has a ponte panel at the centre of the front and then a thick elastic around the rest. So if worn with the tunic length tops in the same range, it wouldn't show, but would have preferred the elasticated section to be hidden. Cut of trousers seems to be a lower rise than usual too, so am hoping that I am not constantly adjusting them as I get up after sitting for a while. Legs seem to be cut slimmer through the thigh area too, so much so that they cling rather than skim before flaring out into more of a bootcut at the bottom. I suspect that this pair will be a little 'marmite' for a lot of people as they will either be a perfect fit and be the best thing ever, or like me, will just fall short. I usually find this range to be ideal for me and the shapes and cuts flattering, but for some reason, this just missed the mark.

Rated 3 out of 5 by opendoor Poorer quality and shorter than expected
Have previously bought Hulaniki trousers from Asda as generously cut and decent leg length. Sadly disappointed with these trousers. Much shorter than expected, and a size 16 more like a 12-14 in fit. Material not as good quality as in previous ranges. Not recommended.

product did not cover my bum although I had the correct size. I have even tried size bigger but they slide down my but. Not enough material to cover
