The Classic Wideleg + Leharia Watermelon Pink
Redolent of the pink lehariya saris worn by women to celebrate the Rajasthani monsoon festival, this relaxed number is a classic favourite. As the story goes, if the pink comes off on your skin, you'd be loved forever.
Model is a US Size 4-6, wears Matter Size 1. 175cm tall.
Long pleat details add a structured elegance to the flow of the pants. Deep pockets are hidden along the seams for functionality, and a four-button closure ensures flexibility of wearing.
100% organic cotton poplin. A plain weave with fine horizontal ribs, the fabric is strong and tightly woven but lightweight, making it less susceptible to wrinkling than other cotton fabrics. Dyed with azo-free dyes.
Wash separately in first few washes to prevent colour runs. After that, machine wash with similar colours. For best results, handwash cold or use delicate machine wash. Do not tumble dry. Line dry inside-out. Cool iron inside-out.
These pants are great! I'm 5 ft 8 in/172.7 cm, 130 pounds/59 kg, pear shaped, and found these to be very flattering. Being more pear shaped, I was worried that the pants wouldn't fit like they do on the slim model. However, the cotton material hangs very nicely and I definitely get the same effect when I wear them. I would say that the tightest buttons work well when wearing the pants at my natural waist (more high rise), and the looser buttons work best when wearing lower on my hips (more low rise). Plus, the pockets are wonderfully deep. :)
One thing of note, is that the color is more vibrant than I expected. I haven't washed these pants yet, so I can't speak to if the color runs, but its a brighter pink than it seems on my computer screen. Not an unwelcome surprise, but worth mentioning if you're trying to match to other items in your closet.
I love everything about this brand and these pants! The colour is beautiful and I love that it's adjustable - I'm an in-between size and find it hard to find clothes that fit me well. Beautifully made.
this is my favourite cut in all the Matter pant designs and I have 2 others. THIS is my happy pants. the watermelon colour is refreshing and unique. I'm a UK14 and i bought the size 3. it's flattering, comfortable and the adjustable waistband is so forgiving.
My 3rd pair of Matter pants! Had to add a few buttons to get a better fit, but comfortable to wear and stunning
Love it! My second pair as the first one bought 4 years ago is very very very well loved!
