Slim-Leg Ponte Knit Pull-On Pants
LOVE STYLE & FIT, DON'T LOVE FABRIC
I really liked these when they arrived. After two washings (normal cycle), the fabric has a lot of pilling. Turning them inside out wouldn't have helped because the same problem exists on the inside. If they produce this item in a better quality fabric, I'll purchase more.

Love the fit
The fit all around and covered waistband are wonderful. I don't always get so lucky. Just noticed another review which critiques the fabric - I do hope the same does not hold true for me cause I love the pants. Did buy on sale so was a little less of a sticker shock.

pills like mad after washing, starts to bag
I loved the covered waistband and tapered leg of these pants, which slim down the curvy female figure. They looked great when I first got them. However, after several washings and wearings, they are bagging around the thighs and knees, and the material is pilling all over. Big disappointment. I know that nowadays we do not expect to wear clothes forever, but this garment has lasted less than a year. Hefty price tag belied the quality of material. I'll stay away from poly/rayon/spandex knits from now on. Maybe it's Ponte I should stay away from . . . but they got the style right with the tapered leg and covered waistband (wish they had added pockets), only the material quality did not measure up.
