Absence Pant - Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cool pants from a non pants wearer! I rented these after another comment and they were bang on the best pants ever. The saddest thing is they aren’t made anymore as I would have paid anything for them. The zipper is a bit tricky but otherwise these pants are the bomb

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous - just as the reviews said. Loved these pants, a great look for work! I also wore them casually with a dark T as pictured. No issues with the zip for me as some have experienced - I just made sure to button and belt the pants before doing up the zip which seemed to work fine. I would highly recommend these, a trendy black pant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing pants I find it difficult to buy pants that fit and I'd never had tried these ones on in the store. For some reason I selected them and gee whiz, they're amazing - comfortable, slight stretch, and the style looks great. I'm probably going to buy a pair now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE Wow! These pants are next level! Super comfortable fit, I love the loose draping on the front and fitted belt with the option to wear tighter or looser depends on your feeling. Great tapered fit around the ankles and slightly stretchy material makes these great for sitting, standing and everything in between. Rent these! You won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering pants on Pear shape body I rented these pants to wear out to a comedy night and had lots of compliments. They are flattering on me as I have a small waist and bigger legs/bottom and they didn't add to the size of my bottom half at all. They were actually quite slimming. For someone with a small waist they are slightly big around there though so had to have the belt quite tightly done up. Only complaint is the material is a little itchy but good quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish but short I rented these for work. They fit a standard size 12. I had no trouble with the zip or buckle - they were easy to wear and I loved the look of them. However, I'm 175cm and they were very cropped - I couldn't wear them with boots. They are probably more suited to summer wear with flats/sandals/heels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pants for work! The zipper doesn’t work properly. It’s quite fiddly but I found even if it wasn’t zipped all the way up, the fact that the pants cross over didn’t show.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but slighly faulty Love these pants so much but the zip is kind of dicky. These fitted well and by no means did i need a size up. The zip just wouldn’t budge on one spot of the pants when there was even the slightest pressure on the zip. I ended up having to zip them half way up and squeezing into them then doing the other half up when they were on. Which is annoying when needing to go the the bathroom when your out. Its a shame because im in love with these pants.
