    I'm size 16 and 5' 7" and I won't wear them, they make me look short and fat :( they look so comfy and fantastic on my friend but she's 5' 6" and about 10st wringing wet. On me....looks like I'm wearing a full nappy :( not good. Try them on, you never know until you do. If they don't suit then you know!

    I would say if you found a good fitting pair they'd probably look ok but they're not supposed to be fitted are they? lol! I wouldn't be seen dead in them I'm afraid guys.

    Don't do it! You need to be 5'8" min for those... Loads of other things would look great on you!

    I prefer to wear baggy clothes, but not these! Definitely one of those things that looks a million time better on the mannequin than it does on a real woman!

    If you're desperate for them, just make sure they dont have the low crotch as it's a hundred times worse. I work in a shop, and have tried several pairs on, and they look hideous on me. I'd stick to plain black leggings hon :)

    This thread made me chuckle.

    There are various styles of harem ranging from the MC Hammer poop catchers - to those that look almost like normal trousers but taper in gently at the ankle

    As others have said I think it's a case of try em and see ;)
