Cute... but itchy and strange fit
September 27, 2017
These pants are very cute, and heavy, which I wasn't really expecting so that was nice. I found it hilarious that the wash instructions were dry clean recommended... not likely for me to do with a pair of lounge pants, so in the washer by themselves on cold and gentle cycle they went and put on the rack to dry, not in the dryer. Washed up just fine. However, they didn't seem to soft when I opened the package, which I was hoping would change a little with the wash. It did not. Maybe it's just my sensitive skin, but I found these scratchy and a little uncomfortable. Not exactly something I want to come home and change into and snuggle up on a cool evening, know what I mean? They just felt a little itchy. I'm going to try washing them again and this time putting them in the dryer on low because they are ridiculously long, and honestly it wouldn't be the end of the world if they shrunk a little (LOT). These must be made for people over 6 feet tall, not exaggerating here. The fit was a little funky too. The top of the thighs were super tight, but the rest of the legs and the waist were so large. Thankfully it comes with an extremely long draw string b/c if you have larger/muscular thighs and a smaller top half, these babies are going to be swimming on your waist. I'll try washing them again to see if I can get them to soften up and will dry to try to shrink. Worst case I'll cut them off and do a quick hem so I don't keep stepping on them and trip, and keep them for cleaning/laundry days.
