Lisette L Pants, I heart you. Forever. And ever.

I’m not a petite gal. In fact, I’ve been dealing with weight issues for the majority of my life (yay!) and am kinda (that’s an understatement!) critical of myself. So, when it comes to clothes…oof. What a headache. But let me tell you why Lisette L pants help get rid of that headache.

And, then, there was the introduction of Spanx. No need to worry about bulges and curves anymore, right? Well, other than the fact that we practically have to grease ourselves up to get into the darn things, they’re not that bad.

Funny story: I wore Spanx to a wedding once. The one that goes from your knees to above your waist? Yeah. I think I actually lost a few pounds struggling to get that son of a you-know-what on…and then realized that I wouldn’t be able to use the bathroom because it would be impossible to get it up and down in the confines of a stall. So I didn’t drink anything all night. Not even water. That’s a good time.

Sound familiar? Yeah, I know it does. Well, what would you say if I told you that you could give your Spanx the day off — but still get the slimming, body-shaping, and contouring effect that they provide? You want to hear more, right? Of course you do.

Lisette L Pants with Flatterie Fit

Readers, meet Lisette L. Lisette L, my readers. Now that you’ve been properly introduced let me tell you how awesome this company is.

Lisette L pants are the brain child of Lisette Limoges (hence the name, obviously) and her husband. They had this wild idea to…make pants that actually fit. I know what you’re thinking…that’s not exactly an earth-shattering concept. But, actually, it is. We women have been subjected to pants (all clothing, really) that come in simple, standard (cookie-cutter, really) sizes, and we’re supposed to somehow fit into them, regardless of whether we’re 5’2″ or 5’9″, with a lot of curves or quite slender…you get the idea. That’s rather ridiculous, is it not?

I’m happy to announce that Lisette L pants are on the scene, to restore some sanity to our lives, our bodies, and our wardrobe. The secret behind Lisette L’s success is the close-to-the-body effect of their fabric and the amazing pull-on “Flaterie Fit.” Lisette L pants feature neither zippers nor buttons (yippee!), they flatten and flatter, slim the lower abdomen, contour the hips and shape the behind. In a single word, they’re AWESOME.

Lisette L pants accomplish all the things we want (or need!) and don’t leave us feeling as though we’ve been shoved into a sausage casing. Lisette L pants hold you close but they let you breathe, with comfort and mobility in incredibly soft, stretchy fabric. The secret? Their special rayon, nylon, and spandex stretch fabric and uniquely constructed waistband.

I ordered the Straight Leg Cut in Black (the usual). Did I mention that you order a full size down in Lisette L pants? Yeah. So, I ordered a 10 and, boom. Fit. Like. A. Glove. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get a picture because, well, truth be told, W is slightly technology-challenged. I can tell you this, though…when I put them on, W blurted out, “Skinny Minnie!”


Lisette L Pants

Lisette L pants are also available in Boot Cut, Slim Cut (two styles), Ankle Cut (two styles), Capris (four different styles).. They also offer a skirt! And, they offer a great selection of colors, such as Black, White, Navy, Beige, Brown, Olive, Charcoal, Aqua, and Black & White Dots (not all colors are available in every style). Lisette L pants are available in Size 0-16.

These are my new favorite pants. They’re fashionable, reasonably priced, and…yowza, do they make you look good. No, make that great. Awesome, even. Don’t take my word for it…slip into a pair (no, you don’t have to grease up!) and see how you look — and feel. No need to thank me. Thank Lisette L.

In fact, let me take this opportunity to thank Lisette L myself…for making me look great and feel great. It’s a nice feeling to look in the mirror (repeatedly) because you can’t get over how you look. Oh, and I can drink fluids while wearing them because they go up and down with ease. Finally, the perfect, slimming pair of pants!

I was not financially compensated for writing this review. Lisette L provided a product sample to facilitate my review. My opinions are 100% honest and 100% mine.

    Now, these pants look really neat =) I am not a petite gal with ultra fast metabolism too, I think this will be a perfect fit for me

  2. nova c. says

    great that they work for you and they are comfy…do u know if they help with “thunder thigh” type problems…? (lol)

    I bought two pairs of these pants last fall and now they are both falling apart! There are tons of little fibers sticking out all over that look like elastic. I followed the care istructions and didn’t expect that this would happen to pants that were so expensive! Very disappointed!

    • wanda says

      I also bought a pair of lisette pants 4 weeks ago. Falling apart fibers sticking out have never even washed. What did you do?

      • Michelle says

        I emailed the company and they instructed me to take the pants to a retailer that sells them and they will give you a full refund. The place I bought them wouldn’t give me a refund but did put the entire cost of the pants on a gift card for a future purchase at their store.

    I want my butt to look like that in a pair of jeans. I want to look that hot in white pants. Maybe with these I have a chance? Thanks for linking up to the Verizon Voices Style Hop last week. Hope you will consider

    Lisette L pants are POOR quality! The hems pulled away – stitching completely raveled. AND the stretch threads in the seams of the pants are curly brown hairs. YUCK!!! I sent emails to Lisette L and returned the pants and have NEVER EVER heard anything in return.

    • says

      I’m sorry you had this experience. This is so odd. I didn’t have an issue with my pants, but I did get them almost two years ago, and I only wore them and washed them a few times since…maybe there was a change in their materials or manufacturing? I don’t know. I feel bad that you had such a bad experience with these pants!

    My pants are also falling apart — little pieces of elastic thread are sticking out of the inner seams and along the front seam — looks almost like pubes!
    And I am small, so I’m not stretching them out.
    Also, one of the hems came down and the stitching at the top of one of the pants also started to come undown. I love the pants — I have four of them last spring — but I am really disappointed in their quality.

    • says

      Geez, I don’t understand all this. I hope they get this straightened out because these pants really LOOK great and feel great (and make you look great!), but this quality issue is a deal-breaker. I can only hope they have figured out the problem and get it resolved quickly.

    I am sooo glad to hear I am not the only one with the hair issue! I thought maybe I was stretching them too much. I have just trimmed the threads, not sure if that will stop it.

  8. Alicia B says

    I have bought two pairs of of size 8 pants in the last 5 months. I love the fit but after just 4 wears I started noticing the fraying issue at the seams that looks like hair!!!! Gross. I have sent one pair back but the customer service has been terrible. I have sent 4 emails- none of them were replied back and I called customer service 3 times. Still no refund or replacement. I’ll keep my fingers crossed but losing hope. I’m so glad I’m not the only one that that this quality issue. As much as I love the fit, I would not recommend.

  9. Anne says

    Mine started falling apart, too!!!! I wore them for about a month (ok, I loved them and wore them a LOT, but I don’t own a dryer and they were always washed with Woolite in freezing cold water and hung). ALL the little stretchy fibers came popping out ALL over the place….the pants were totally horrible and un-wearable after just four weeks. I had gotten them from “As We Change” catalog, and after a LONG battle (credit card dispute, Better Business Bureau complaint, etc) they finally refunded my money. I’m SO disappointed, and I miss those pants very, very much….but the other posters are right on target on this one…..don’t waste your money.

  10. Anne says

    PS…..If you want to try them anyway, the Orvis store/catalog has them and they pretty much have a no-questions-asked return policy. With all the quality issues that is the ONLY place I’d buy them from.

  11. Claudia says

    These pants are a waste of money – I, too had 4 pair that were quickly popping elastic threads in the seams. I contacted the marketing guy for Lisette who sent me new ones but they are doing the same thing.

  12. Janet says

    I have the same problem with fraying along the seam lines!! I don’t have heavy thighs…so the pants are not over stretched. I too have washed them in cool water, delicate cycle, no dryer. It’s a shame…I love the fit…best pants ever…but I am really hesitant to buy another pair. I don’t think they’re very well made.

  13. anita says

    I bought a pair of these pants at a local boutique store. After several months they had elastic threads on the crotch seam, then on the side and inside upper seams. I told the store owner, who wears these pants often, and she has not had this problem. She kindly replaced the pants, and I purchased another pair to use for traveling. I am saving both pairs just for travel, as I don’t know if these pants will also pop threads. Tis a pity as they are comfortable and flattering.

  14. Elaine says

    I am so glad there are others that are having the same problems. I too love love these pants and they fit fantastic. I sent a registered letter to their Customer Service (which cost me $15) and I have been in contact with then for over a month. The care on them is horrible. You cannot just wash them. They are wrinkled messes. You have to iron them. After 3 months they started getting the threads come out of them. I want more because of the fit but won’t because of the quality and cost of them.

    I am not finished with their Customer Service. They are in denial and I want a new pair before this is over.

  15. Helen says

    Have had exactly the same problem with these great fitting, uber comfortable pants. I am hoping they will be able to address the issue
    of these little threads appearing in the seams. I am presuming that they are the actual spandex fibers.

  16. Jeanne says

    Love the fit of these pants but I agree. They are impossible to launder and get the wrinkles out even following the care instructions turns. On 3 pair fibers are sticking out all over I’m sick over the quality but adore the fit!!!!!! Who else sells a similar pant that launders and lasts longer? Love the smooth fit in the front feel so skinny in them. I guess never launder?

  17. Beth says

    Wow! I thought I was the only one having this problem with the elastic “hairs” along seams! Two different styles, both pairs had same problem. Even had one seam split. Sewed them back up, though. I take good care of my clothing, too. So sad because I love these pants!

  18. snowfri says

    Yep, I loved these pants–in the beginning–but I have never experienced such poor quality in clothing. DON’T BOTHER. They are JUNK.

  19. snowfri says

    I love the fit but HATE the quality. I returned my first pairs of pants to the retailer and she replaced them saying it was just an issue with the production at the time. Now all the pants that were replaced are doing the same fray. The retailer has since gone out of business. I contacted the company and I’ll keep you posted if I hear anything. At over $100 a pop, it’s so disappointing to have 4 pairs of pants I can’t WEAR!
    Thanks for your honest replies. I thought it was just me having the trouble, but it sounds like it’s a constant issue with Lisette.
