Online shopping and browsing has become my new hobby given the current situation.

I was looking to buy some pants and I was so surprised at the number of drop crotch pants that I found. Personally for me I find them hideous, unflattering and unfeminine. Especially when I'm a size 16-18. They don't suit me at all.  

What do others think of them? They look like they have a saggy balloon that's hanging there.

Does anyone have any good online store recommendations that sell size 16-18 nice pants and jeans? Not frumpy please!

Thanks!

I don't like them. Looks to me like someone with a full nappy.

Love them.

I am down with unflattering and unfeminine - I dress for comfort :D

i’m not a fan of them for me. i actually have tried some on and they do nothing for me. they’re quite popular and i’ve seen them on some people and they look good in a kind of carefree hippy kind of way. i can’t carry that look.

Wow!
The fact that they're everywhere honestly made me think that it's just me and maybe I'm missing something.

They certainly are hideous. I'm surprised that fashion look has lasted this long.

Pre Covid I thought they were hideous. Now I’m thinking they have their merits, comfy is my new look. I haven’t worn a non-elastic waist in 3 weeks!

I'm wearing some right now.  They're perfect for a pandemic.

Yep this is what comes to mind for me
hideous pants

Give me a classic pair of wide leg trackies
No drop crotch, no elastic at ankle, no skinny leg.
Just a basic wide leg in proper trackies material trackies

Yes, I do like me some drop crotch pants.

Not the extreme ones though. Google 'Elm Lifestyle Weekender Pants'. They are my go to pants, love them. Especially with my neutral leopard print sneakers:)

I loved them for my child as a toddler, usually really soft fabric,  comfy, easy to get on and off, plus the shape was perfect to accomodate a nappy!

On me, not a fan. They always seem to have really skinny, often cuffed, ankles which I find uncomfortable.

They have a brief fashion moment every five years or so, then everyone remembers why they became unfashionable in the first place 🤪.

I will say though, that I am so tall that occasionally I have been able to wear the less extreme style of drop crotch pants, because I am so long in the body that they end up looking like high-waisted pants 🤔. Generally though, they look just as horrible on me as they do on everyone except Saddhus.

They are very comfortable and yes I have a couple of pairs I wear at home.

Some of my children have them and they look perfectly fine for casual wear.

I guess one positive about them is that you've never have to worry about having camel toe.

Hate them. Plus I like material between my thighs to stop the rub. Damn you mum for gifting me thigh rubbing thighs.

I saw my boss wearing a pair one weekend. He looked hilarious. And not in a funny ha ha hilarious. He looked like a clown.

I didn't like them back in the 90's, and I'm not going to start now!  :annoyed:
