Rated 5 out of 5 by dinogirl listen up, curvy girls!
With apologies to Sir Mix-a-Lot, I do not have an LA Face, but I definitely have an Oakland Booty. So, I was a bit skeptical about a skinny pant fitting me. I have a 15" difference between my waist and my hip, and most pants gap like mad at the waist. Not these. They fit really well, and they are insanely comfortable.
They're a bit more substantial than leggings and can be dressed up or down effectively. I do a lot of flying, and in the colder months, I am pretty much guaranteed to be wearing these pants with a long, open cardigan. They are the perfect combination of comfort and polish.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MsNat Dissapointing: Not As Good As They Were
Two years ago, I bought the Pixie pant in black and navy, and they were the answer to all of my prayers. They were thicker than normal leggings and the fit was divine. Normally with leggings it feels like I'm not wearing any pants, and I always have this worry that my underwear is showing through (I know that I could wear a thong or just go commando, but quite frankly I don't want to). Not with these, they were so perfect, that even wearing underwear you didn't see any lines on your butt, they were fabulous. I wore my pairs of pixie pants everywhere. Even my mother approved of them, and that is rather unusual for her with skin tight clothing.
Now, fast forward two years, and I try them on in store again. There was a promotion going on, and I was like, time to get another pair! When to my horror I realized the pixie pant had been changed...for the worse. The fabric was thinner, and less flattering, and somehow even though it was thinner, it was stiffer and less comfortable as well.

I literally used to re-up these pants at least once a year; I probably have eight pairs. They were the perfect professional legging/black pant. They were form fitting in all the right places as they made your butt look amazing, skinny at the ankles oh-so-perfectly, nice material, and thick but super soft fabric. I went in the store to purchase my 2015 pair, and to my horror have found that these have been completely re-worked. The fabric is thin, dreadfully stiff and feels like sandpaper against your skin. They are loose under your butt, in your knees, and at your ankles. I thought it might just be the pair I tried on, so I tried on another pair, and even in other colors/leather version. What a disappointment JCrew, I'll be returning the pair I bought. Time to find a new pair of perfect pants since these are no longer the "it pant."

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate In Love with These Pants!
I absolutely love these pants! I have three pairs - two in black and one in navy. They are so cute, comfy and go with everything. Also, since they're thicker than leggings, I don't mind wearing them with shorter shirts.
A Tip: Even though it says dry clean only, I wash my Pixie pants (from time to time) in the washing machine (cold, delicate cycle). I have not noticed any shrinkage or any problems, though it might wear them out a little bit faster than if you take them to the cleaners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SavvyShopper Amazing Pants. . . with a secret
I love these pants. They look incredibly pulled together and the back zip is extremely flattering. But here's the secret--they're just as comfortable as my favorite yoga pants. So while the rest of the world is admiring how well-dressed you are, you can smile with the secret knowledge that you are comfortable to boot! A must own for any girl who likes to be stylish AND comfy.
