80% Ramie, 20% Cotton

Made from a cool, breathable ramie/cotton blend, our Breaking Waves Culottes have a distinctive textured feel. These wide leg culottes have an elasticated back waistband, and with no zips or fastenings, they're easy and comfortable to wear. Deep front pleats help create a flattering silhouette. They're finished with belt loops and slanted pockets. We love them with one of our striped Sailor Tops or a printed organic cotton top.

So versatile

Bought these in the mustard colour in store today -am a size 12/14
Size 12 fit perfectly, and at only 5ft 2ins these are the only pair of this sort of style trousers that look great- they are comfortable, well made and great value for the money
I have ordered the blue
Well done Seasalt ,

Lovely culottes

I really liked these culottes but they were far too big, even huge! I usually buy 14 - 16 , Chose 16 but am sure I must have misunderstood the measurements this time. I should have listened better to the reviews,! I was sorry to have to send them back. Am considering making a new order, then sizing down, perhaps to 12. The culottes were so smart and comfortable.

Way too bulky

Sooo disappointed by the sizing on these. I bought the black elasticated ones in a 12 and they were perfect, and I have 3 other pairs of your trousers which are a perfect fit. These are just massively too big on the hips and and I clearly needed a 10 which is ridiculous as I'm really not that skinny. You'r out of stock in 10 and the cost of postage back to the UK (esp as you sent a box rather than a bag) is so expensive that before I give up I shall take them to a local seamstress before I give up and spend £15 on postage. Also very surprised that nothing came in protective bags. If they were the right size I would love them.

Hi AnnH200
Thank you for your review of the Breaking Waves Culottes. Some of our garments are deliberately designed to be oversized. We'll detail this next to the product and we'd generally recommend ordering your usual size, the garment should fit and drape beautifully.
If it helps, we list detailed measurements on the size guide next to each garment, or if you prefer, our customer service team would be pleased to help with specific sizing queries. Call 01326 640075 or hop onto a chat at www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk
Thank you for noticing the packaging. We’ve been working hard to reduce our use of plastic packaging and have made many changes across the business. We've also removed all bubble wrap and plastic sticky tape from our packaging. This has eliminated 18 tonnes of single-use plastics a year from our business!
Best wishes,
Seasalt

Super trendy, arty culottes!

I love these super trendy arty culottes. I bought mine in Midnight and they look great with my Porthmear Cove tunic in pear and a pair of DM boots. One happy, cool 60 year old. Thanks Seasalt.

Love

Absolutely fantastic for me, I love these trousers! I haven't taken them of since I bought them in Totnes. Sizing is big - I'm wearing size 8 when I often wear 12. They look so elegant and they're very comfy. They have pretty pleats and good sized pockets. They fit to the waist which I prefer, and although I'm only 5"2 I like the longer length. I'm going to buy more in a different colour if I can find them.

Comfy culottes

These culottes are great for me as I have quite chunky legs, so wider fitting trousers are perfect for me. I did have to go down a size as they are quite a generous fit. The colour pear is really nice and unusual and looks great with the Larissa shirt in the photo which I also ordered, would love more colours please. Thankyou.

Beautiful Breaking Waves Culottes

Love these culottes and having broken my foot in 4 places they have been invaluable as they’re wide and baggy.. Elasticated waist, comfortable and you can dress them up or down, I’m 5ft 6 and they are mid calf on me. Culottes in my day (I’m old) were cropped trousers that gave the appearance of a skirt. These culottes DO look like baggy cropped trousers and deffo not a skirt. I gave 4 anchors as they do crease but not quite as badly as linen/cotton, however for those who are travelling...........perhaps take an iron in your handbag if you’re going somewhere important lol! Other than that they’re fabulous 😀

Bile green

Good length (I’m 5’11”) , but very loose, I usually wear 16 sometimes 18 and had to go down to size 14. The material has a lovely texture and feels soft and none scratchy. Unfortunately I was disappointed 😢 by the colour in artificial light I would discribe it as bile green in daylight it’s not quiet as bad . I took them back and exchanged them for the blue ones which are lovely.

so comfy

I bought these trousers to go with the daisy patterned Larissa shirt as shown on line. The colours are super together. They fit perfectly, I have a small waist but larger hips and thighs so this style is great.

Could be great

Sadly had to return as these came to just above my ankles making them look like baggy trousers rather than culottes, which I think should be just below the knee. I’m 5 ft 5 so might be ok if 6ft. Just need a few inches off the length and would be great

Do take a look at our Mariner Crops, they might be a better style for you?

So pleased with first time trouser buy

Delighted with the general fit and comfort, although I had to shorten them. The fabric is soft and hangs well but you do have to press them when they come out of the packaging!

Great material

I'm usually a size 12 but kept the 10 for a better fit around the hips. I like the material (soft and non-scratchy on the skin), cut and length. They look a bit more casual than they appear on the website, but maybe I just need to iron them!

So comfortable and such a good fit!

I think I'd call these crop trousers rather than culottes as they're quite long - and longer than I was expecting. However I got used to the length very fast, now like it a lot and I think I may well need to order another pair as 'Breaking Waves" are so very comfortable.

The fit is perfect - mostly due to the elasticated waist at the back. The material is really soft and easy on the skin - and yet feels as it is robust enough that it won't succumb to the evils of "chub rub" on the inside thighs. I think those thinking these are generously sized might be smaller ladies thinking of the rather mean downsizing I've come across in other makes. While larger ladies will think they are absolutely 'spot on' - and I will continue to be a dedicated customer due to Seasalt being so very nice to those who need clothes bigger than size 18!

Gorgeous colour, soft material

These are beautiful, well fitted culottes in a wonderfully sturdy but soft fabric. The midnight is a gorgoeus dark navy. The only thing I would say is consider sizing down, as they were generously sized.

Not so good

Sorry I returned these I am a size 8/10 ordered a size 10 to fit by bottom as this is definitely a 10. But I am 5 ft tall. They were very big and very baggy a size 8 I think would have been too small. Just not fitted enough for me. Looked so much nicer in the picture.

Great fit!

This is a fantastic pair of culottes and I was assured that I didn't go wrong when I wore it! It sits perfectly and is of right length and the fabric was good enough to dress it up or down. I felt it had a great sense of fashion vibe to it and didn't disappoint me at all. Thank you!

Lovely!

I love these culottes. They are very flattering and a lovely material. I have however set the first order aside for now and ordered a size down before deciding which size to keep.

I love these culottes. They are so comfortable and could be worn day or night. I am waiting for the Larissa shirt as shown with them, to become available, then I'll be very happy.

Oooooh these are good!

was very surprised at how comfortable and good looking these culottes are. Am seriously considering getting a second pair. The top goes so well with them one has to really buy them together.

Size 8,
