    non- linen ladies' summer trousers 1st Jun 17 at 10:34 PM
    I'm after some loose summer trousers - but I can only find linen, or linen blend,which I can't wear. Even the cheaper shops now only seem to have linen. Can anyone suggest somewhere I can look? I would rather an actual shop where I can try them on first, rather than on-line. Thanks!

    I have looked in all of those (or at least those i can get to) and can't find any! Bonmarche are all too short (and old lady ish). I can find cotton tight fitting trousers (more like jeans) but they are too hot for the summer. I want the loose sort that only come in linen.
    This is the sort of thing -https://www.tesco.com/direct/ff-crinkle-wide-leg-beach-trousers/643-3160.prd?skuId=663-0909&pageLevel= and I have just ordered some to try, but I would like other colours too.

    Damart and Cotton Traders have similar styles.

    The Tesco ones are too short - despite several reviews (from people taller than me) who complained they were too long!
    thanks for the link - not sure saffron is quite my colour!. I'll check out the other two companies mentioned

    I saw the damart ones - but the reviews are really mixed. I wonder if it depends on the colour - there are 2 types of picture shown - one lot look nice but the other set certainly don't. It's only the turquoise blue which are £10.50 - the rest are £21. I can't decide whether to risk it - cos there is the postage on top and then the postage to return, so it could end up being costly and DH is out of work at the moment. Thanks so much for looking things up for me - I am grateful. But this is why I would like to find a real shop where i can try them on!

    You'd only pay postage to return the trousers - Damart would have to refund the amount you paid to have them delivered to you (providing you return the whole order i.e. don't buy something else and keep it). At most you'd pay £2.79 if you use MyHermes and drop the item off at a ParcelShop. You may find the trousers fold flat enough to go large letter rate for even less - just get a free certificate of posting from your post office to cover you for up to £20 in case of loss.

    Lots of these aren't linen. I'm sure Peacocks had a selection too.

    Thank you both for the links. I should of said that I need plain trousers, because I have lots of patterned tops. The plain, loose, thin, wide leg trousers I would like are either all patterned or made with linen. I have had some in the past, but for the past few years they have all been either patterned or linen. The only ones I have found are the damart ones, but with such mixed reviews I'm loathe to try them. Thanks everyone for your kind efforts on my behalf

    Also meant to say that the damart 'long' trousers are only 29" long - so too short for me. They must cater for very short women!

    They have 3 lengths - but the longest is only 29"! I usually buy M and S long - which is 33". On their website the standard length is 29". Which is why I think Damart must be aimed at shorter ladies.

    Oh I feel your pain! I've a 34" inside leg and it's so hard to find trousers that are long enough. It IS getting a bit easier nowadays, but when I was in my late teens, the only place I could get trousers to fit was Burtons. Yup, the menswear shop. Luckily they did free alterations, so they were tailored to fit my shape, but still! A teenage girls wearing trousers from Burtons?? Mortifying!

    I googled 33" leg palazzo trousers and loads came up. These are £12 from Fashionworld and come in two colours, 33" leg

    If you type the same into google, you can see how many options there are. Good luck!
