    Not Your Usual Review!

    I am so happy that I found these pants!

    I recently had to have an emergency surgery that left me with an ostomy - basically a little pouch attached to my tummy to collect waste. As you an imagine, none of my pants (including my favorite worn in Carhartts) work as they are either way too low or the waistband hits right on my pouch.

    These pants are perfect, the cut fits perfectly at all the right places, knees and seat, legs, etc. The fabric is soft and pliable, but still durable. But most important of all, the high soft waist band not only covers my entire ostomy pouch, but has enough give to make wearing the pouch with these pants totally comfortable. They also look nice enough that I will be able to get away with wearing them to my job as a school counselor.

    I am also happy to have found Dovetail, because while Carhartt has been my MO for years, it feels GREAT to support a business that is focused on women only. I am going to be a repeat customer for sure and looking forward to trying out other products in the line.

    Not your usual review

    Due to a colon cancer surgery I ended up with an ostomy - basically a little pouch that attaches to my belly to collect waste. Needless to say, NONE of my pants were fitting anymore including my fave Carhartts.

    I was so excited to find this pant with the soft high waistband. Besides the fact I have some badass utilitarian pants, they cover my ostomy perfectly and comfortably. They also look nice enough that I can easily pull off wearing them to work. Win!

    THEN, the fact that Dovetail is all about women means my Carhartt days are officially over. So excited to support this company. I can’t wait to buy another pair.

    Soooo comfortable

    I rarely notice or think about my pants throughout the day, which is a sign of a good fit. Variety of pockets enable me to carry a bunch of helpful stuff. I wish there was a pocket deep enough for a speed wrench, but I have been using the zipper pocket which actually works pretty well, though I fear the zipper will wear out eventually. No belt loops is a bit of a limiting factor, but man oh man is it nice having an elastic waistband. 🙏 Perhaps not as durable as advertised — I’m seeing a little bit of stitch fraying and some small holes from carrying pointy things in my pockets, but I prefer the feel of the modal to denim any day. So glad I found these, I have four pair now and will probably get more for personal use.
