Maternity or Not, You Need These Linen Pants


This summer is all about comfort for me. I just started the third trimester of my pregnancy and I feel like my belly doubled in size overnight. I outgrew all of the linen pants that I usually wear in the summer, so I wanted to see if I could find a pair that would work for this summer….I do LOVE my linen pants.

Enter these Caslon linen pants.

I ordered both the Regular and Petite size Small, tried them on, WASHED them, and tried them on again. They both shrank a bit and the petites ended up being just a tad too short, while the Regular size were just a tad too long to wear with flats. I ended up keeping the Regular size because most of my shoes have at least a bit of a heel. (In these pics, though, I’m wearing them with Birkenstocks so you can see how they’re a bit long on me.)

I love them. They fit under my belly and are crazy comfortable. A bonus is that I’ll be able to wear these linen pants even after I have this little guy.

psst! This post was originally published three (maybe 4?) years ago, but when we saw that the Caslon linen pants were back in stock, we had to republish – they’re really good (and pretty timeless, too).
