Okay, so this is embarrassing.
I finished my "Best of 2008" series last week with the strange feeling that I forgot something.
I just realized what it was.
I don't know how the Rio pants by Fit Couture escaped my attention because I wear them several times a week. These pants are flattering, comfortable, and fun. The style is universally "becoming" on any body type due to the flared leg, the fitted "stretch" through the waist and thighs, and the black/espresso color options. If you're petite or tall, you'll appreciate that you can purchase the pants in four lengths (29," 31," 33," 35"). Of course, they're also machine-washable and the Supplex Nylon/Lycra combination really helps the material retain its shape.
I'm currently in my third trimester of pregnancy and they still fit perfectly. The foldover waistband is perfect for my "expectant state" because I can roll it over (below the belly button) or I can pull them up over my belly for added support.
Pair the pants with the Daytona top and you'll be exercising in style...all through 2009.
