I’m thinking about purchasing some new dress pants and I’ve come across Betabrand. I am a part-time gentle chair yoga teacher and a full-time youth services librarian, so I LOVE anything that can be worn teaching a yoga class (which I usually do before heading directly to work). I have fallen in love with LuLaRoe Irma tops as they are long, can be dressed up or down, and can be worn both to work and teaching classes.
All that being said, I came across Betabrand (specifically the Skinny-Leg), and think they are exactly what I’m looking for.
Does anyone else have experience with Betabrand? What is your experience? How is the sizing? Do they last?
Thank you lots.

I bought their yoga dress pants and the sizing runs small. And they’re not particularly flattering although they were comfy. They fell apart pretty quickly on me though…
That said I have one of theri 4-in-1 dresses and that thing is great for traveling! It seems to be hit or miss with the brand.

haha, I just saw a post from a FB friend this morning saying that these are the best pants ever!

Sizing runs small, and to be honest, I don’t think I could get away with wearign them in my office. In my opinion, they still look like yoga pants (which may work for some work environments, but definitely not mine).

I like them for my particular work (government job with a combination of office work and field work). I can tuck them into my rubber boots and walk around outside comfortably. They resist wrinkling better than traditional dress pants.
I prefer the straight style, which looks like a slight boot cut to me. I tried the boot cut ones and found them too wide for my taste. I haven’t tried the skinny style because I think they would be essentially leggings at that point. I prefer the ones with no pockets or front pockets only because I find the back pockets are too visible.
I am 5’4″ with a 25″ waist and 37″ hip, and I wear the Small Petite, which fits ok but isn’t perfect. The Small is bigger at the waist than I would prefer, but the XSmall was tighter on the thighs and butt than I would want at work, so I opted for the former. The Petite length is perfect for flats but maybe an inch too short for my prefence with heels.
I’ve had my first pair for a year and a half now and they’ve held up fine for me. I wash them cold and dry on low heat.
So yeah, they’re an interesting idea with certain benefits depending on your needs, but I don’t consider them the best looking or fitting dress pants.

I got the original slacks cut ones. They looked like slacks. They were super tight though. So I’m not sure about the skinny leg but if you get the slacks ones people at work couldn’t tell.

I have yet to see “yoga dress pants” that actually pass as dress pants.

These look really casual, if yoga pants/ leggings are inappropriate then these will be too.

As other people mentioned, the sizing runs small, but I ordered a size up hoping they would be less skintight and it didn’t really help (the larger size was awkwardly baggy in some places and fit well in others).
They are ok for the sale price.
