'Organic Alexa' Twill Cotton High waisted trousers in Midnight Black by Lucy & Yak
We've revamped our Lucy & Yak unique high waisted trouser design with a new fabric that is perfect for the colder months, but still fully breathable. We still wanted to keep the fabulous big hips shape and mom style fit, with our super comfy and versitile elasticated waist. I couldn't be happier with the finished design, I plan to live in them all winter!
We've used twill which is 100% organic cotton. Twill is a beautiful fabric thats getting close to denim in terms of strength, but its far softer and not quite as heavy, but keeps a nice structured shape. We always try to make clothes that can be worn in any season, which is difficult but I think we managed it again with 'Alexa'

I enjoy wearing these trousers as smart clothes for work and for more casual situations. Super comfy. Wearing a belt with them really helps give the trousers more structure.
I am 6 foot, and have an athletic build - usually a size medium, but reading the reviews I sized down and bought the small 30". I am glad I bought this size, as they are still really roomy. I would say that I could do with an extra couple of inches in the leg - a size small 32" would be perfect if you guys made it!
'Alexa' Lightweight Organic Cotton Trousers In Midnight Black
Super comfy and roomy, I love doing yoga and relaxing in them, some of my favourite trousers, and they're very black, which is nice.
The first pair of trousers I’ve got that fit the waist but also the bottom half (if your waist is smaller than your legs/bum these are the trousers to fit )
However while wearing them they caused a lot of pain between my thighs and when getting home (after only 4/5 hours of wearing) my thighs were red raw and really sore.
I’ve not had this issue with any clothes I’ve previously worn from anywhere else.
Also this is something I think buyers with animals should be aware of , animals hair , fluff ect stick to the trousers really easy however a lint roller gets it off just as easy.
This is my first order with Lucy and Yak and I’m a bit scared to order again as although the service was good the clothes were painful to wear and had lasting negative effects on my legs.
I absolutely love these trousers! I’m a size 12 and medium is big on me but lucky not too big. They are so comfortable and look great with a belt and top tucked in. I loved them so much I got the grey ones as well! I could probably wear a small but I haven’t seen them in stock recently. Highly recommend.
