Rated 4 out of 5 by Wiswoman Warm--wish they came in Tall
The silk long underwear pants are very comfortable and warm. They are very roomy in the butt area but the extra fabric doesn't bunch up. The waistband is not constricting but not too loose either. I would give them 5 stars if they came in Tall sizes. They are a bit short on me. I'm 5 ft. 9 in., 145 pounds. Size medium fits well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MamieC Not For Short People, These are HUGE
Opened the box, tried them on, immediately put them back in the packaging for return. I am 5'1" and 112lbs. I ordered the size Small/Petite. The waist literally came up to right below my boobs and they were baggy all over. I have never seen an inseam so long in my life. The "petite" label should be removed from these, as there is nothing petite about them. I was really looking forward to wearing these under my jeans and being toasty warm this winter, but these did not fit the bill. My search continues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JeanneH Just right: warmth without bulk
I've had a few pairs of these over the years, but waited until these new ones had been washed a couple of times before reviewing. Delicate cycle, warm wash, cold rinse in a front-loader, and drip dried - no noticeable shrinkage or fading. I got a size 2XL, and at 5'5" tall, they are plenty long enough for me. ( If the pants were an inch shorter, it would be better, but I cope.)
These are heavy enough to be a warm layer, but not so heavy as to be at all bulky under slacks. I wear them under Bean's Bayside corduroys with my own handknit wool socks overlapping the bottom cuffs. The socks stay in place so there are no drafts around my ankles, and when sitting, my lower legs are still warm. With thinner silk pants, my legs would be cold.
I can also recommend the camisole as an extra layer under tops, making the difference between feeling not quite warm enough and being comfortable. However, unless you want the cami fitting skin-tight, I would recommend getting the next size up. (I have not tried the sleeved tops, so cannot comment on them.)

I love the pointelle silk long pant warm underwear. I live in Florida but I am going to Wisconsin in December. These will be perfect because they are light enough to pack in my suitcase and keep me warm in the cold weather. I returned the top because it was too large and have not received the replacement, but I am sure it will be perfect when I receive it. Thanks for light, comfortable warm long underwear. No one sells as nice products as you!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by airbear lightweight warmth, long in inseam
A thin, lightweight layer for added warmth--what I was looking for. I ordered size small and found them long and loose below the buttocks (I am 5'5", weigh 132). I am hoping a washing will bring them more in line with my body shape. Longer inseam will be a boon to taller people.. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by happyinNC3 good extra layer for cold weather
I bought this same pants a few years ago and it has held up really well. I liked it much better than other silk pants I had tried. The only issue is that when I bought it before the size small was more like a medium petite which is the size I wear. Now the small size is more true to a regular small, longer and bigger than before. I will probably keep it anyway for days when I go hiking and need more give in the clothes.

When ordering, just order your regular size, not up or down. They fit and feel wonderful.

Great product, although a bit too long for my vertically challenged frame. Timeliness of service perfect. Would highly recommend.

It is long, soft and hopefully warm. Need to test it in the winter like last one.
