very comfortable pants and I love wearing them at home. The fabric has a good quality and I really like the colour. I am normally size 8 at WS but, playing safe, I went for size 10 and had to exchange it for 8 as 10 was too big. The only thing I would change about these pants is the length- I wish they were a bit shorter.

Perfect 'clown' pants
I love these! I call these my clown pants, the trousers I wear to clown around in. I find myself putting these on whenever I am just at home chilling out. They are comfy, nice length, great colour. Perfect!! I have them in gunmetal, seriously considering buying another pair!!
14 June 2014
Have three pairs now in blue, grey and black. Great fit and perfect length, I'm 5'8" and always struggle to get pants long enough. I haven't had any problems with the colour running, hand washed separately for first wash but since then they have just gone in the machine. Keep their shape well too.

The turn everything else in the wash blue
These trousers, even after several washes on their own, continue to turn everything blue. They have ruined so many of my clothes now. I really do not recommend.

Must have trackie bottoms!
I have several pairs of these in various colours I have acquired over the years. They are soooo comfy but also flattering. Every evening when I come home from work I change into a pair of these to relax in.LOVE THEM!!

My first pair and won't be my last!
Ordered gunmetal in a 14 and a 12
Sad to say the 14 is a perfect fit! Yes the leg is rather long for my 28" inside leg, but nothing a pair of scissors couldn't cope with. They are sooooooo comfy, like wearing a pair of pyjamas!
Tried them on with lots of White Stuff tops I have in the wardrobe and match with nearly everything :)
Taken into account what has been left by other purchasers and will wash them alone!
Looking for more colours now.

Beware! Great .......... until you wash them.
I was initially delighted with the Dolce pants in Matador Blue. They are true to size, a good length for me at 5ft7, nice quality fabric and very comfortable. Then I washed them with disastrous consequences! Unfortunately I washed them along with other blue garments (my mistake, I know) and now they are all ruined. So much colour came out of the pants they were unrecognisable and my other clothes are now a nasty grey/blue colour. If you do get these pants, wash them by themselves and be prepared for them to fade so much they look old and tatty after the first wash.

So glad to find these again!
So comfy, excellent for travelling in, please release them in other colours

As good as ever!
Not had a new pair of these in years but it was time to replace threadbare ones! Not disappointed at all, still as great as ever. Next time you plan to take them off stock, however, can you let us know so we can bulk buy?!

What has happened with the length!??
I have a pair of these from about 5 years ago and they are great. Decided to get another pair, but the material has changed and they are sooooo much longer! Its a real shame as my original pair fits a treat and they look great. Can we have these in a shorter length please!??
08 March 2014
Great but too short!
Like other customers, my 8year old pairs really need replacing so was delighted when these pants came back. Imagine my HUGE disappointment when,being tall, nearly 5ft 9, they hang just too short above the ankles. Yes shorter customers, we would love for them to hang just sweeping the floor (much more flattering) but it's not possible. We also cannot cut any extra material off as there's not enough in the 1st place! We just end up looking like we're wearing 'half masts' for those of us that can remember!
Come on WS, how many more requests are you going to get before you give us long lengths?Pleeeaaaasee!
My trousers were sadly given away as they looked so silly on me, not even relegated to decorating gear...I've gone back to my old threadbare pair,yey!
27 February 2014
I am a size 8 but 8 to 10 for trousers. Ordered size 10 and they fit lovely. I'm 5'6 and the trousers just touch floor at back in my bare feet. Fabric feels soft and not too heavy so should be good year round.

Good quality activewear
I really like the dolce pant and have bought these regularly over the last few years.
I would have given higher ratings if you did these in petite! Come on White Stuff, us vertically challenged people still need clothes to work out in!!
19 January 2014
I currently have 3 pairs of dolce pants in different colours. I am about to order another pair in black. They are so comfortable yet smart. I wear them for dress as well as casual. White Stuff stopped selling them for a while, so I was so pleased that they are available again. Keep them coming please.
14 January 2014
I have a pair of these that must be 8 years old, maybe more. I've worn them and worn them and they still look great. But now the waist band has started to get holes in. So I was over joyed to see that white stuff still makes them. I will be ordering a a new pair right away.

Best "fat"pants ever!
I refer to my dolce pants as my fat pants! Not sure why...think it's because I don't like the term sweat pants!
Anyway..... I just love these trousers! Unlike other similar style lounge/sweat pants they don't lose their shape during the day and become saggy round the knees! They look quite smart for lounge pants, and I've even worn them to work (I'm a teaching assistant).
Several of the comments referred to the length of these trousers....I'm only 5ft 2 so they were too long for me. Not a problem though as I simply cut a few inches off the bottom.....no sewing and no fraying either! It would be good though if they came in a variety of lengths! Why don't they? Enough reviews have asked for this! The colour has faded a little, but my other makes of "fat pants" have totally lost their shape and leg length, so a little fading is not a problem in my eyes!
Summary? Keep them coming, but more leg lengths!

Superb for lounging - Flattering
These are so flattering and comfortable. The material is soft but strong and heavy enough to hang well and hold their shape but not too thick to feel cumbersome. I really wanted the grey marl but as they were sold out I have the gunmetal which is still a great colour that will go with everything.

Great fit but wash them on their own!
Love the style and fit of these pants but major gripe is the colour-fastness. The colour run even affects other dark items in your wash, even with a colour catcher! Meanwhile, the pants keep getitng lighter, and now look scruffy and worn out even though I have only washed them 3 times. I have them in dark blue. Maybe it's just this colour. Very disappointed though, given how expensive they are. Relegated to decorating in now!

Lovely Flattering Fit
These pants have good reviews and quite rightly so, but I have to say I tried five pairs to get a pair with a longer length as all the 10's I tried seem to vary slightly.
There needs to be a definite short, regular & long length. Sizing is generally good, I am 10-12 and a 10 is just right (some of the shorter pairs felt smaller all over). The unfinished edge does curl up a bit too so they need the extra length. I am 5'8" with a 33.5" inside leg, so please please White Stuff take heed of us girlies re: different length legs because I think everyone is asking ! Also, I bought gunmetal but would love them in a light grey marl colour too ... OOH PLEASE! Lastly do keep the width / flare at the bottom of the leg, don't go any narrower as this balances the fit and makes it so very flattering. Nice low rise, & fit round the bot... Thanks WS :)

comfy stylish functional
Had these pants for years, and just replaced them in matador blue! Not disappointed.
05 November 2013
Great for home, gym or outdoor activities
Perfect fit and length and work as well with slippers, trainers or boots - I love them. A good generous cut too so I bought 2 sizes to keep one pair more fitting and smarter and one comfy lounge around pair. Bring back the lovely pink you did about 10 years ago please!!

So comfy and stylish too
I just love these Dolce pants, I have bought 2 pairs and have another on back order. They are comfy yet fit in the right places to make them look stylish enough to wear out of the house, and not your regular sweat pants! I disagree with other reviews that comment on the length, they are just right for me - I am 5.6 and don't have incredibly long legs! Can't recommend them enough, think they will be my staple weekend lounge wear!

Fabulous sweat pants!
I absolutely love these! Been looking for good sweat pants for ages. These fit well, are soft and comfortable, perfect for lounging around or working out. As other reviewers have said these are quite long, and I'm average height, but I'm fine with that as would rather that than have ankle swingers.
Got these with a discount, so doubly happy, thank you White Stuff!
05 October 2013
Not for me!
I had been looking for some good quality sweat pants and ordered these convinced they would be fabulous by most of the reviews I had read.
Sadly I was disappointed - they were okish.. but very very long. I am 5ft 6 so average height. Please bear in mind that when wearing jog pant most of us would be dressing comfortably in flat pumps, trainers or flip flops not heels!
I know they are wide legged - but these are overly wide - I would prefer a slimmer leg too much flapping going on for me!
Can't see what all the fuss is about .. definitely not for me.
Sorry WS returning.
02 October 2013
As good as ever
Have had these before a few years back and were great. Have tried several other makes over the years since and finally decided to reinvest in some of these again. So glad I did as they are perfect. Fit is great, quality great. They look better than just normal joggers. Length not a problem on me as I have long legs, if anything could go a fraction longer but they are fine. Will be getting another colour. I agree with other WS reviews - please don't ever stop making these!

far too long
sorry I know my legs are a bit short but would have to take these up a good three inches to not be walking on them.
14 September 2013
Not as long as led to believe!
Having read most of the previous reviews, I thought these would be long enough...I am about 5ft9 and often find it hard to buy lounge or sweat pants without trying them on first - they are usually too long. These fit...ok. They are not biting my ankles, but I like a sweat pant to be long enough to be gathered slightly around the shoe, not so with these.
I would say these are perfect for someone of about 5ft6 or 7. Disappointed!
26 August 2013
Very long in the leg
Great trousers, good quality but I am only 156cm tall they are much too long for me.
Pity as they are great looking and fit well apart from this ...
Please Whitestuff bring out a version in a 'short' leg thanks!
07 August 2013
as good as ever
I have lived in these pants for the last 15 years and I am so grateful they haven't changed!
Lovely soft material which doesn't seem to age and the quality is excellent. Top score!!

Why change a 5-star formula?
Ok will someone who works for WhiteStuff please explain to me how the fashion industry works in regards to a particular design being repeated over the years due to popular customer demand... how do you manage to not replicate your product exactly? do you not own the pattern design? I first bought Dolce pants in 2008 and they were awesome. They had reviews about previous years Dolce's being awesome. Perfect fabric. Perfect Fit. Perfect Length. Every year I have faithfully replenished my Dolce stock but WS have never got it quite right since. Last year the fabric was awful, this year I agree with other reviewers they are definitely longer. You dont want the expense of having to take them up nor loose the cute pink tag at the hem. Also I'm a 14 but I always buy a 12 in Dolce (this seems to be common). Come-on WhiteStuff why not make everyone happy, source great quality fabric for your fabulous Dolce design and offer two or three leg lengths... they would be even better best sellers than they are already!! Run your sales figures over the years I bet they're good these pants always sell out!
