Check Out what The Wall Street Journal had to say About Lisette Pants

Check out what The Wall Street Journal had to say about Lisette L Montreal Pants! Designers are rethinking pants. Varying measurements in hips, stomach and waist combined with different heights make slacks tricky to fit right. Montreal-based Lisette L has developed a pull-on pant with a hidden mesh “flaterie panel” that trims the tummy. It calls its fabric “magical Lycra,” made of 77% rayon, 20% nylon and 3% Lycra that weighs 275 grams per square meter. “The weight is very important,” says head of research and development Yvonne Lamers. “At 225 grams and under you’ll see cellulite bumps,” she says.The brand has recently introduced a ponte knit. “With the strength of yoga wear, we felt a knit is important,” says Ms. Lamers. Its ponte knit is a blend of viscose, nylon and elastene. The fabric’s stretch, structure and drape makes it versatile and has allowed the brand to expand from pants to include jackets and skirts.More women are turning to ponte knit pants for the office. They look somewhere between a legging, a yoga pant and a career pant and are a modern take on the flared pants that made ponte popular in the 1960s and 70s. Try on a pair today!
