Rated 3 out of 5 by Pachamama333 Sizing, fabric quality, fit has changed. Disappointment for formerly huge fan.
Let me start by saying that I own 12 pairs of the Stockholm pant from 2014/2015/2016 (pre re-design), and 4 pairs from the new 2016 batch, which qualifies my expertise here, LOL. This also tells you how much I love(d) these pants (obsession). I literally wore them almost daily, all year round. They were my favorite mom-chic-but-not-a-slob-while-still-super-cozy pants. The beauty of the last generation/s design, and what made them unique (and #1 mom pants), is that they were still actually like sweatpants, substantial fabric and coverage but gave shape, while still leaving a bit of extra room in the legs, always flattering. They were not like leggings. The material was thicker and forgiving, covering all imperfections while still beautifying one's curves, and there was "room to move" in the pant. (I.e. not tight.) To me, it was absolutely the perfect casual (errands, kids, could even pull them off at dinner) pant. In the previous version of the pant, I own both XS and Smalls. (5'4", 120.) This year, gloriously happy for my favorite pants to return, I bought 4 Smalls, preferring the tiny bit of room they gave overall, while still being slimming and flattering. I was shocked to find that not only is this year's Small equivalent to but SMALLER than last year's XS, but the fabric is significantly thinner and different, and the new smaller sizing renders the pants tight like leggings and tragically, the much thinner fabric (especially in lighter colors) shows all the "bumps and rumples," which the old design and fabric (even in the XS) NEVER did. Now, they are just glorified leggings that look like they want to be sweatpants, but instead its an identity crisis and they don't know what kind of pant they want to be. What made them special is now gone, relegating them to the "tight pant drawer." They've literally gone down by 1.5 sizes (this is before any washing) and the quality of the fabric has significantly changed, and not for the better. Probably the worst thing about Fall to me, the decline of these pants, because I lived in them. I won't be buying anymore (certainly not going to place 50 orders trying to find my new "right" size). Even if it's chic, who wants to wear a sweatpant that's not forgiving and shows bodily imperfections? Not moms. And moms have enough tight leggings as it is. These are pricey and should flatter everyone, just like they used to. The former fabric was "heartier," better quality, the design slightly roomier and overall far more flattering, functional, relaxing and unique, while still being chic. Please go back to the old fabric and sizing, HA. "All good things they say, never last…"

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoonerMom Love these but have difficulty finding a medium
I have these pants in the Henna color which is kind of a burnt orange. Would be ideal for a UT fan, as a Sooner, the color is less than ideal since the Longhorns are our big rivals. For those who are not NCAA fans that commentary is irrelevant; so, I will say that these pants are extremely comfortable and cute on. They are right on trend with the more sleek/ tailored sweatpant styles we're seeing and I believe this pairs quality beats the competition by a mile. My only complaint os that they are too popular. I really need a medium and have wanted to purchase the black and green pairs but they never have mediums when I look for them! In fact, last yr. I bought the "Henna" in Large because They are 95% cotton and I shrunk them. I washed them in warm and dried them on medium though the care instructions mentioned cold wash and drying on low. Fortunately my gamble paid off and they did shrink up to a slightly large medium. If they were just a tad more fitted they'd look even better but as they are, I can wear them and they still are more tailored than a sweat pant. They make it appear as though I've made an effort even though it feels like I'm wearing my yoga pants and even after several washes, they still look as good as new, albeit slightly smaller than before. I am ordering the green today. Again, they are out of the medium. I hope the Large green will shrink up too. If I ever do time it right, I'll buy a medium and just have multiple pairs. These pants are that good that I could own more than one pair in the same color. For reference I'm usually 140 and 5'2" but a few glorious weeks out of the year I get down to 135.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomDE6 Very Stylish!
These pants are comfortable. I wear size large (normally size 14) and they fit very well without being too tight, or needing a top to cover the back. They are well-tailored and look like a better pair of pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by heidiinTN Casual but so tailored
I love these pants! I got a pair in both black and green.
Pros-tailored-hugs you in right places while still not snug. Looks good with sneakers or even heels. I always feel casual yet dressed up when I have them on.
Cons-my black ones fit differently than my green ones. My black pair are perfect. My green pair are a bit large in the hips/thighs while a bit snug in the waist. So, the green pair look more like sweats and are not as tailored looking.
One thing I would like to see improved-the waist is a tad high. These pants beg for a front tuck T-shirt, which I do, but I have to constantly pull them down a bit because the natural waist is truly too high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToothMommy3 Adorable run around sweats!
After buying Hannah for my girls for 2 years, I finally made a Hannah purchase for myself! These sweats are adorable in person, great quality, great style! I am 5'3" and 120lbs. I purchased the xs because I am usually 110 lb, I recently had a baby and wanted to have these sweats to last even after I lost the weight. They fit just fine with my weight now and they'll still look great when I loose my post pregnant belly. The only thing that isn't perfect about them is the zipper pocket, the zipper is pretty rough when my hands brush past them, wish they were a little softer. But the look of the zipper is adorable.

They are a nice slim fit in the leg - so not sweat-pant like. And the material is of high high non-bagging quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnotherCarrie Very nice - but fabrics vary!
These are supremely comfortable, but the silhouette and zippers give them a nice edge. I am giving five stars to the pair I finally settled on (forest color), BUT I did notice variation between pairs. The first pair (black) I ordered online was heavier weight fabric. I returned it because one leg was just the tiniest bit shorter than the other and it drove me nuts. Then I ordered two more pairs (forest and another pair in black). Both of these had a lighter weight jersey. I think maybe the first pair I got was an older model? The drape is lovely, the forest color was much more attractive on than I expected. I do think the rear pockets are kind of unattractive (they are very large and square) but otherwise I love them.
