The Real Comfort Behind Harem Pants

by Austin McIntosh on Oct 02, 2017

On a scale of 1 – 10, how comfortable are you really while wearing your skinny leg denim jeans?

Be honest. For starters, getting them on requires some special skills.

You have probably perfected your own version of one of the many tight-pants dances. There’s the wiggle, lunging, squatting, kicking, yanking or the up-side-down squid dance. I've even seen some interesting work done with coat hangers for added leverage...

They look great once they’re finally on there though! Your legs look long, your butt looks perky and your feet appear smaller!

When it comes to comfort though, they’re not really kicking any goals and can actually be pretty distressing to your lower extremities. Sitting down gets pretty uncomfortable after a while with those rigid waistbands digging into you and have you ever dropped something and had to scramble to find it? Crouching down isn't easy in these jeans and they're hardly made for maneuverability!

Now, nothing beats the comfort of harem pants. Except maybe wearing no pants at all.. Originating in Persia over 2000 years ago, you may know them today as Thai pants or bohemian pants.

(Still stuck?

Think Jeannie from 'I Dream of Jeannie'!)

Whatever you call them, they’re lightweight, airy, breathable and all around comfortable!

They’re unisex, suit any body shape and can be paired with almost anything, thanks to their effortless style. Wear them skateboarding, dancing, doing parkour, working out at the gym, doing yoga, aerobics, while gardening or at the beach.

They’re also perfect for long plane or road trips as they can be rolled down small to save space when packing. They can be hand washed and dry quickly, meaning you'll have your favourite pants back again soon! Going out for the night? You can still wear your harem pants! Wear them with heels and bold accessories for a chic nighttime look. Going to work? Yep, you guessed it. Team your harem pants with a cropped blazer and heeled sandals for a professional look.

Harem pants have an elastic waistband and are very wide fitting from the crotch area all the way down to tapered elastic ankle bands.

Think Jasmine in Aladdin if you need further inspiration! Harem pants are almost one-size-fits-all and are even perfect as maternity pants! The waistband can be worn under your expanding belly and the loose-fitting design easily accommodates your changing body shape.

They come in different fabrics, colours, bold prints, various finishes, and stylish designs.

These include:

  • High-cut harem pants
  • Low-cut harem pants
  • Convertible jumpsuit harem pants
  • Wide-style harem pants
  • Arabic style harem pants
  • There are even harem pants for kids!

You know when you’re having one of those days where you would literally rather watch paint dry than do your laundry?

No worries! Harem pants are not only easy to wash by hand, but they take just minutes to dry. In no time at all you can have a pair of clean get up and go pants thanks to their durable, lightweight fabric.

Whether it’s a night out with friends, a relaxed lunch or simply lazing around the house, harem pants are not only incredibly versatile and stylish but also SUPER comfortable. Everyone should own at least one pair, or four! Trust me, you’ll need several because you’re never going to want to take them off!
